In a 48 hour period I...
1) Completed my taxes
2) Received my annual bonus. Which is shrinking at an incredible rate. While J&J profits soar.
3) Will have a colonoscopy.

- Red Wine with the above
- Single Malt Scotch Whiskey after the above
- Beer, Hoppy interesting beers not that crap they advertise on TV. Oh by the way if you see an ad on TV for something you dont want it. Think about it if something sells well on its own merits why do they need to cram it down your throat.
