For the first time, I took my bike on a work trip, so I went on a couple ridiculous night time rides. Ridiculous, because who rides around Auburn, Maine at 10:30PM when it's 30 degrees out?

On Friday night I got lost, but used the city lights reflecting off the clouds to at least have a general idea where I was. The best street name I saw was Jackass Annie Rd, in Minot, ME. And that was a real street, not someone's driveway with a vanity sign.
Yesterday I scooted out of work early (early meaning that after getting up at 4:30 AM, I worked from 5AM to 5PM, instead of 7!) to go to the Maine Brew Festival in Portland with Ryan, Melissa, and their friends.
My search for Belgian style beer led me to Allagash brewery, and their Tripel is awesome. Ties La Fin Du Monde, which I wrote about before as my fave. I'm going to figure out how to brew it myself.
The beer was plentiful, so the restroom was busy. Some dude marched into the packed bathroom and announced, "I've got enough piss in me to launch a space shuttle!" Try picturing that.
Jay's putting on another brewers festival in Manchester, NH next weekend, but I'll be flying off to Memphis, from Manchester that day so...I can't think of a better way to get ready to fly.
Anyone have a new Droid phone? I'm very intrigued, but PO'd to hear a report that it will not work with Yahoo email. What the F?
My toe that I thought I broke last Tuesday has turned all shades of crimson and blue, but it's feeling better. And with that non-sequitur, I bid you adieu.
