Beer Goggles

Sorry for all the typos and stuff as late. The story is pretty simple:

Friday night (or was it Saturday?), I bought myself a 6-pack of "tallboys" in a desperate attempt to save a little change (the thinking being that I'd get just as drunk off a 6-pack of tallboys as I would off the 8-9 beers I would drink otherwise). Not being used to the size of the can, and apparently just inebriated enough to completely forget the whole concept of condensation, I managed to pour pretty much an entire tallboy can o beer on the brand new keyboard I just purchased last month.

I mean the whole can.

It was like I was watching a movie or something; I jumped up and watched the foam overtake the keys, mesmerized.

I took it to the sink and poured the can of beer out of the keyboard, but I was too lazy to go digging through the bedroom for one that worked... and I was interested to see if it would still work. The good thing about this story is that some of the keys did still work, but I shouldn't have been using it to post with because I was obviously just wonky enough to not be able to determine exactly which keys worked...

At any rate, much like the current design of this blog, it was shoddy and lackluster, and I apologize. I take the subjects discussed here seriously (even though I may take a lighthearted approach to some of it), but I am human and I'll let you in on a little secret:

Part of the reason I haven't done more work here is because Blogger has a very bad tendency of timing-out when uploading. I'm running this blog through Blogger via FTP and it takes sometimes as much as 2-3 minutes to upload. That may not sound like a long time, but it's very frustrating when you realize you forgot a comma right after you hit the "Publish Post" button!

Still, I'm pleased to see people are reading and I promise to pay closer attention to the details from now on.
