Alas. Things aren't so bad, though. I didn't get it in Milwaukee. I did, however, go to the liquor store. I made a Dark and Stormy when I got home. I also picked up some stuff from an end-of-bin sale. Got some cheap cachaca and some whiskey (McCarthy's Oregon Single Malt Whiskey, aged 3 yrs), $6 off and $15 off respectively.

I'm going to make some capirinha later. I haven't yet tried the cachaca. The McCarthy's is very peaty, but smooth. The Dark and Stormy, made with Myer's dark rum and Sioux City ginger beer (the grocery store used to have a lot more variety of ginger beers, but this was the only one they have now), was quite good. The ginger beer was too heavily spiced in the way the wikipedia article recommends against for a proper Dark and Stormy, but I'd do it again. Or, will do it again.

I am not being challenged.

Tomorrow, there's a chess tournament in the neighborhood. I don't know if I'll do it. I've been distracted lately and it might not be done in time for some stuff I want to do in the evening. On the other hand, what harm could it do? It's just a 4 round swiss. But I don't want to miss the stuff in the evening and I think it will butt up against that. If I'd been preparing harder for it, I might be more willing to consider missing stuff in the evening in favor of it. But, I haven't. Live and learn, bitches.

Coworker is buying lunch for us today. Okay. Cool.

The pop machines here at work are now completely empty. They've been slowly emptying for the past couple weeks. They really need to get on this. Occasionally, I feel like getting a Coke or a Mtn Dew when I'm pondering a problem.

I'm bored to death here. Can't they give me something challenging here?

LMK if it's better than the ginger beer version.

Word on the dark and stormy by LinDze (2.00 / 0) #4 Sat Aug 23, 2008 at 08:05:37 PM EST
I've been using Vernors lately, a bit sweet though. Cock & Bull might be good, nice with vodka on the rocks. Possibly too much ginger though.

Capirinha huh? I have a friend or two who spent some time in brazil, oh, 10 years ago? Brought that back with him but never knew the name.
