Happy St. Patrick's Day/ I Wasted my Whole Life This Morning

So first, let me tell you about my long night (oooohhh!). No, nothing like that, sickos. For those of you who have been following the site, you know about Dark Lord Day, the one day release party of Dark Lord Imperial Stout. To be able to buy this beer, you must first purchase a "Golden Ticket", which goes on sale online sometime on March 17. Last year it was 3:20 in the morning, and most felt the same would happen this year. So I woke up at 3, and from then until 8 this morning was alternately refreshing the webpage for info on tickets and sleeping in 15 minute increments. Finally, they make an announcement at 8 that tickets will go on sale "after work today". My precious sleep, lost forever to a night on the internet. Sounds like a typical night of porn surfing for my friend Andreas.

But a night of little sleep will not stop me from drinking a lot of beer on this St. Patrick's Day. Many people consider this holiday "amateur night", but I think many people are amateurs compared to me when it comes to drinking. I'm not about to discriminate against those people today. The question is, how do I celebrate? Do I go out to be among fellow revelers, listen to bagpipers, and avoid checkpoints? I'm afraid I may end up being that lame guy who sits at home with a beer and a mini of Bailey's. But I ain't going out like no punk bitch. If I'm doing beer, I'm doing Moylan's Ryan Sullivan Imperial Stout.Guinness and Murphy's taste like water to me anymore, so I need the 10% ABV backbone that this beer provides. I'll turn on some Irish music (cause Irish music is that easy to come by; you just "turn it on"), and I'll be recreating Riverdance thanks to the magical powers of Imperial Stout. Enjoy the holiday, everybody!

I have a feeling your friend Andreas will be offended by his shout out in this post.

I, however, found it hysterical.
