No Quarters to Operate

Does beer really count as dinner? Go back less than a few hundred years ago and some form of beer or ale made an appearance for most meals. I ask this because I'm too tired (read "lazy") to actually make any food in my new house. I've cleaned all day. The apartment is done. I'm out. And I'm having a delicious Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar for dinner. Well, some chips and hummus are involved as well. But the bulk of it is beer. I feel pretty good about the decision.

I loved my old apartment, but my new house will work out swell. I find I like the idea of starting in a new direction from a new place, even if it is the same town. My homies Chris and Becky (Happy Birthday, by the by) are just starting out in a new town. They're in the sort of twiddle-the-thumbs stage of a new place. His recent birthday and new move made him a bit reflective in one of his last posts. I thought that perhaps I might venture in that area, but now I leave the transition riff-raff to him. For now I'd just like to say that even though I'm by no means settled where I'm at, I have beer and clothes in a washer that does not require quarters to operate. Have no fear, the beer and the clothes are not together in the washer. Things are looking pretty good.

Beer is food in Germany (dunno 'bout Austria). :) I like to think it's because there's so many calories and it's made from grain and all that, but I suspect it's because of taxes or something mundane like that. Can't wait for the fresh beer!
