About the only thing that was bad yesterday was the food at the luncheon. Having watched enough episodes of Hell's Kitchen and Top Chef, I can tell you this stuff sucked. I think one of the dishes was beef stroganoff. It looked like shit in a buffet bucket. The meat was fatty, breaded, and had no flavor whatsoever. The rice dish was the same. Did the restaurant have a salt shaker in the kitchen?
After everything was done I headed out to get drunk. I ended up at the Milwaukee Ale House and sampled their beers. The Blockhead Brown ale was good. The dopplebock was ok. I didn't care for the Devil's Advocate, a Belgian dubbel ale. Too much orange peel made it taste like cough medicine.
Soon we were back in my neighborhood drinking at a bar that specializes in Wisconsin craft beers. I reunited myself with Capital Brewing's Blonde Doppelbock. Good stuff. After a couple more beers- and a spirited debate with the guy next to me regarding the teacher's union- we left to go back to my friend's house.
I woke up a bit groggy and thinking it was Thursday. Throughout the day I kept thinking it was Thursday. Each time I dropped an f-bomb and moved on.
I am not sure what I'll do the rest of this week. I have taken the suggestion of my boss and co-workers to take leave from work. I'll need to remember not to set my alarm on Sunday. I don't want to be the only one going to work on a holiday.
