Rule of 3 for the Hollidays!

That's all just well enough because in reality there is only room enough for three HOs. Three shall be the number of HOs and the number of HOs shall be three. Four HOs is too many, and two is insufficient. So the only HOs there is shall be three and being the HOS which there are three shall be:



Coworker 1 and 2 are pulling various food out of their desk drawers
1:I got soup
2:I got peanut butter cup trees (this goes on for a few minutes)
1:I got tea
1:Yah I brought it in before I found out the company provided teabags
2:*made obvious teabag joke while leaning back in his chair thinking he won*
me: *walks over and hits him in the face with a cold soggy teabag*

On the first day of December the Girlfriend gave to me!

I really did not intend to make the blog all about my exploration of adult beverages. But in true "Yup...that's my gal" form the lovely girlfriend sprung an early Christmas gift on me. She's has gotten me one of these:
Picture courtesy Master of Malt

Yup I have 24 small bottles of Bourbon to enjoy. Might make the holidays a bit more bearable.
Each is 30ml, that's about a shot's worth of goodness. For comparison an airline minibottle is 50ml
For details on what types are included check out their webpage. There are also different types ranging from
Vodka all the way to the old and rare whiskey calendar. Just be warned about the sticker shock on that one WHEW!

So she can share in the fun...she got herself the scotch version! (And thus preempting a gift idea.

More BEER!

First a FAIL

Blue Moon
Gingerbread Spiced Ale
took one sip and went NOPE!...tried one more sip just to make sure...and down the drain the rest of the bottle went. The GF is also not a fan.

Then a WIN

Berry Weiss
I liked this one. Is definitely sweet. I'm told it works even better when mixed with their Summer Honey Wheat for a "honey bear"

Labatt Prohibition series
Bourbon barrel ale!

So they took bourbon barrel staves and "natural flavors" and brewed beer. I have to say they did a pretty good job. Definitely better consumed when you can take your time enjoying it.

Although it does make me wonder how much the taste is the barrel staves and how much is the "natural flavors"

FAIL / WIN you decide.....

Attempted to consume a full cup of coffee....topically....... sharing with my desk and office chair..
Yup shirt and pants are really wet.

Having a full set of clothes in my car to change into. I'm not all wet for the rest of my shift!

Proper preparedness prevents clothes full of coffee for the rest of the day. Although there are worse things to be smelling like

THOT gets on his soapbox

Trying to ban the stars and bars.

Today the Confederate battle flag. Tomorrow goes the Gadsden. Next week goes the Stars and Stripes.
Don't think that will happen? tell it to the students who have gotten suspended for wearing U.S. flags to school.

And lets not address the real racism of the shooter...lets ban a flag..lets ban guns...because it's the easy button way. I would think people like the shooter are the outliers of society. How popular are KKK rallies nowadays? How much IS racism and how much is manufactured outrage to push an agenda or pacify a demographic.

Gay Marrage

As a matter of policy I don't care what consenting adults do to or with each other. You don't stick your penis in my face and I don't hit you upside the head with a bible. That is how we get along.

I do object to the legislating from the bench. The people have voted how dare you DARE you put on your SJW hat and overturn the will of the people. (and this applies. to all of the judges that have overturned passed laws or state amendments.)

And chief justice hypocrite!'s ok to rewrite legislation from the bench to save a social welfare program but it's all of a sudden not ok when it comes to gay marriage?

I would be fine if they just said that the licenses issued by the gay marriage states had to be valid in the non amendment states. Look to see more bakers and florists driven out of business at the bayonet point of .gov wielded by SJWs Also look to see priests forced to preside over weddings against their beliefs. 

The SJWs and the LGBTwtfbbq activists will not just shake hands and go home they probably are already planning the next campaign. 

Roberts et al saving the ACA yet again.
Makes me wonder what they have on the guy. It's a tax is constitutional after we say it means not what it says.  Well there we have it folks the third branch of the federal government just proved it's as dysfunctional as the rest. God help us all.


I came across these folks at NRAAM. Why did I wait so long to write up a review you might ask. Well I wanted to actually USE it before writing about it. So not too long ago I purchased a used gun and used the bore light while inspecting it. It did provide more light than the other non powered lights I've used.
The manufacturer says it is especially usefull at dawn/dusk when the UV feature helps things along.

Image off of their website
I did not see them for sale on the website. Site is a bit primitive at the moment.
For those that are curious product is made in Ohio. (Hooray for local commerce.)

FCC-Product was provided for review. Otherwise no compensation besides chocolate was provided in compensation. You are a carbon emissions source please look into stopping that.

Beer? Pt2

Tonight! Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat

Yup tastes like Wheat...and with more of a "beer" taste than ShockTop's Belgian White from the last post.
*shrug* ok I guess... not going ewwww and not wanting more either.

This beer in honor? memorial? of friends of a friend who lost their lives in accidents recently. Death is difficult to handle when it comes from any direction. Remember the "tribe" is here for you, whatever you need.

For most people the answer is YES!

For me I've never acquired or liked the taste of the stuff. I do enjoy a nice bourbon or whiskey but never liked beer. Probably this is due to examples of "how to do it wrong" growing up I never got really into alcohol or drugs. Needless to say I was on the boring side for most of my life. As an early adult I realized that some things must be tried even if they are ultimately discarded.

To the point I am challenging myself. The local mega grocery chain has a "choose your own adventure" six pack. The lovely GF helped me pick out a few and I'm working my way through them. I got a couple of more Summer oriented beers as well as a hard cider and even found an adult root beer.

First I tried Shock Top Belgian white.
You could really taste the wheat that the beer is brewed with. Not bad. I'd recommend giving it a try.

Next up was Angry Orchard Apple ginger
It's a hard cider, tried something similar before *shrug*
Need to get the bottle opener for this one.....Oh look it says use bottle opener on the cap *smirk*

Well the ginger does something with the alcohol taste...Sorta like they had babies and they came out with tentacles. I think I'm going to call it halfway through...*pours a bourbon*

Stay tuned!

C1:*being annoying* Don't you  want a picture of me for your fridge?

What does one do in a convention full of guns, with none for sale?

You buy a knife!
In specific a custom Benchmade Barrage.

They where trying something new. Create your own custom knife. Not only that, if the nice lady is not too busy you get to watch it being put together. What makes this awesome is it didn't cost much more than the base knife would have.

There was lots of colors for the grip panels and several blade finishes. Some went quickly (hot pink).
Me and the GF both got one. With her luck firmly in play she got the last purple grip set and the last blade in the Titanium color finish. Me? I opted for a more standard look.

NRAAM Nashville!

I will be there!

Some handy tips....

Business cards.
Even if they just have your email/BLOG address on them. Also good for the fishbowl drawings.

Address labels or a stamp.
Good for not having to fill out your address for drawings.


I also recommend a backpack for catalogs/SWAG...having to carry it in your hands gets in the way.

Any other ideas? post a comment.

More news from CUBEVILLE!

Boss's Boss: Goodnight have a good weekend!
*few minutes pass*
BB: I'm BACK! (probably forgot something.)
Me: Well they say absence makes the heart grow fonder. I guess you didn't want to take that chance!

Me: That is what they said about you....

Hilarity ensued....
