The girlfriend’s at work. Netflix and cats. Watching Greenberg. Drinking coffee. 
Chewy approves. 

Good enough Easter so far.

The Checkout line

Cashier has the dark eyeliner and dark hair. She’s working at the local supermarket. 

"And yeah, well, my parents adopted my brother and I when I was like seven, so yeah, I mean they were religious and stuff but they were too much. I mean they shoved it down our throats."
Scans a knotted yellow squash for the grey haired lady. 
"Oh my, yes that’s awful." Grey hair says. The lady’s getting her plastic out of her clutch purse. Starts to run it through.  
Cashier: “But so you know, when I was 15 - Oh you have to swipe it again, the card reader doesn’t work. So when I was 15 my brother and I we were really terrible. -Oh the card’s not reading, try it again. We were really terrible, I admit it. We were not good kids. We got into a lot of trouble - Yeah, the card’s not reading, sweety. Let me try it over here.”
Cashier takes the card out of the wrinkled hands of the old woman. She tinkers with the credit machine. 
My eyes look up. The plastic red letters on the wall. All caps. W A R D S  - Stretched across the expanse of the scratchy brown wood. 
Grey hair: “Oh I’m sorry dear, sometimes it doesn’t work. I have another card here…”
Cashier: “No, I’ll get it to work. -But that’s what happens, you know? Bad kids, you hold them too tight, and you get bad kids like what happened with me and my brother.”
Cashier gets the card to work. Some kind of button mashing on the black box did the trick.
Grey hair: “But you’re not bad now.” Not a question, a reassurance to herself. 
Cashier: “No! I’m not bad now, I’m done with all that. That was years behind me.” She’s maybe early twenties. Maybe late twenties. 
"Besides, I have a kid myself now, so haha yeah that wouldn’t work."
There’s a half-stacked tiny display of obnoxiously bright bubble gum staring at me from the edge of the black rolling belt. There’s the elderly bag boy at the other end. 
"When I was a kid," he chimes in, "my dad took me when I was 18 and said to me: ‘Boy! You gotta get outa here!’ And then, wham! I was out on the street, and I had to figure out what to do. Just like that!" His greying mustache. His old man hands grabbing the plastic bags and tying them in a knot for the lady. 
Cashier, abruptly to old woman: “Well yeah, see ya.” She hands over the receipt, folded in half.
I’m up next. We don’t say anything except the regular “hi, how are you, good, good.”
I grab my local coffee and barbecued chicken and organic sweet potatoes and head out to the car.

Friends of the library booksale in Gainesville. Biggest used book sale in the southeast or so I’m told. 

I bought Sin City 1-7 and Bone 1-3 trades for just under $30.

New thing I might start doing: Combining random tweets from http://tweet.onerandom.com/
With some of my images.

Edit: I got quickly bored with this idea. Plus Tweet.onerandom.com isn’t very random. 
Look at this and have fun with it instead: http://infinitecomic.com/

Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale 
Grade: B+
Best beer of the night, I think. Tastes very similar to the barley wine I just tried, but much more smooth. Smoother. Yeah. Avoid the other stuff and go for this one. I think the bourbon taste needs to be less…. I dunno, something, and then it’d be good. 
Thus endeth my beer fest in place of the Gaiensville beer fest thing that was happening that I refused to pay $55 for.

Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Barley wine. 
Grade: B
It’s a good barley wine for the most part, but it’s a little watery. The bourbon taste comes across as a little fakey and medicine-y. 
Drinking this one after drinking the last imperial stout might’ve been a mistake. These are both super flavor-y beers. I shoulda just had a nice IPA or something. 
Again, who cares about the Gainesville beer fest happening when I can spend 1/2 the price and have one at home?

Blue Point Brewing Sour Cherry Imperial Stout - Eh, B- I’d say. 
So here in Gainesville, they’re having a beer fest. Tickets cost $55. My roommate and I decided we’d just go to Ward’s and spend about $20 a piece and try a couple of different beers in the comfort of our own home. 
This first one is just okay. Pretty good body and taste. The after taste is not so good. Like a mild version of Old Rasputin with a tinge of cherry in it.

Drop Bot - A free game for iOS devices (featuring you!)

Howdy, my tumblr friends. I normally just post pictures and not-so-funny punchline-less jokes, but my friend Kyle is making this cool little game and if you contribute a measly $10 you get pixel art of yourself in the game. Go check it out!
