    replied to Can we go back to the prior format?
    Rare appearance outside of The Lodge/Extras thread.

    USCHO doesn't care anymore. First it was the trolling rules, now it's the format. Fcuk it....

    I have passed on places that are ignoring the rules/etc. It's just not gonna happen for me. I am armed with masks, due to the previously mentioned vacation coming up, and then a local parade is happening next weekend, which...this is kinda funny. They are not doing the normal route. Households had to...

    I get to go out on weekends, and of course my MI trip is coming up, but everyone in all cases, I know have been obeying the rules/guidelines. I know it's not 100%, nothing is, but it gives me faith and trust that they are doing what they are supposed to. I know I've made light of such things, and hey,...

    Morning, Lodge!
    Doing the usual Saturday thing, headed to my "lake house" (2nd fave brewery) with a buddy, who was nice enough to secure a couple crowlers (25oz cans) for me on Thursday from them (they sold out in less than a day), so I could bring them on my upcoming MI trip to share....

    It "cooled" off a bit here in 952 Land, only 87 today, but a LOT of cloud cover, so it didn't feel like it.

    Friend procured some advance 750mL cans from a local brewery for my upcoming MI trip (I like to bring MN beers to share with the Michiganders), not available to the public...

    I remember the first time I swore. I had a favorite red tupperware cup, I was about 5 or so. Always kept it in the fridge. One day, it was not there. "Dammit." Mom freaked, "WHERE DID YOU HEAR THAT?" "Um....dad? Is that a bad word?"

    Got a talking to, and actually...

    Evening, Lodge. Nice afternoon at church, the main patio was taken over by regulars and off-duty servers. It was like a house party. A little warm, but the breeze helped quite a bit. Overall, it felt...normal, and that is much needed in these times. Very thankful for that.

    For those concerned...

    Dam hot (and humid, that's the bad part) here. World record for Chez Rube: A/C running 7 days straight, and it's gonna continue to run. This is no lie.

    Hit up my 2nd brewery today, new beer that you can drink from a glass bowl (novelty, but oh so fun). They only offer this the first couple...

    From what I hear, these new-fangled cars' warning lights come on if your gas cap is loose. It's a joke....

    Same here. Thank goodness I don't work at the main building. Masks required, and no fans can be running to circulate the air (due to 'Rona). Have to rely on the building vents only. That has to be hell. My building is at least 15-20 degrees cooler....

    Afternoon, Lodge. It's a hot one out today. Met up with a friend at my second favorite local brewery, right at opening, b/c there are 2 specific seats outside that have very nice benefits: shade, AND don't have to get in line to get a beer. Only two seats with both those benefits, thanks to social distancing....

    There's a reason I only keep in touch in the Lodge/Extra threads. I don't want to lose touch with the community, but f* digging through all the other threads. I have better ways to spend my time.

    Brewery-hopped today with a buddy, perfect day out for it. He's furloughed until at least...

    I give it until Monday. That's a week. Mgmt has been very good for the almost 13 years I've lived here, totally on top of things, so we'll see.

    And LWB, great to hear that everything went rather smoothly, considering. You need anything, you know we all have your back....

    Fridge still busted. Apparently it's a special order, so no timeline. Ugh. I did find out that it takes 30 lbs of ice to fill all my coolers to the brim, and keep all my stuff cold. Not expensive, just a PITA, to be honest....

    Evening, Lodge. Fridge is still broke, new one is apparently on order, gonna find out tomorrow. Not too worried. Coolers are stacked with ice, I can buy food daily to cook, I don't mind (I shop twice a week anyways, since I never know what I'm in the mood for, and don't want things to spoil).

    Evening, Lodge. I last opened my fridge last night, before going to bed. Got home tonight, and it was dead. Everything was at least "normal room temp," and most of you know my room temp is a bit higher. The fridge was that. Lost some food, no surprise. NO beer was harmed though, thankfully....
