So here is how my week has ended up...drinking Stone IPA's in the office....but let me tell you how great it has been up until this point!

Hop rhizomes came in
Copper for CFC came in
5 free Blu-Ray movies came in from rebate with PS3
SWMBO and I decided we needed another honeymoon period
I got to do some much needed modding to my POS Dodge Caliber (work car) and her IS300
We are ditching a big PITA customer of ours at the office
I got to play hooky on the first awesome day of spring and spend it with SWMBO
I built 2 bonfires for 'Hop Alley' so I had some ash to till in
Did I mention I'm having a cold one in the office
The one class I'm taking this semester I have a 99.8% in
And I'll have so much more brewing equipment come Sunday

I'd say it hasn't been a bad week at all?

Anyone else having a ****ing kick ass week?

Sounds like a great week!

Mine wasn't as great as yours, but I work from home on Fridays, so the week always ends great!

(I'm also currently drinking Stone IPA, but it's AHS's clone. Good stuff!)

You're welcome! It's from US Taxpayers, the IRS is merely facilitating the transfer from my wallet to yours.

Please spend it on good brew & brew making ingredients & equipment. Support your LHBS!

Yeah, spend our tax $(and yours) on some nice homebrew gear!

The SWMBO and I are going to split our check down the middle. We already discussed that the only patriotic thing to do is to spend this money on American-made, locally-sold(if possible) consumer goods. In adherence to that guideline, I plan on picking up two reconditioned Corny's, a 5lb CO2, and some tap hardware from the LHBS. Now if only they would just buy a Sanyo 4912 and do all the mod work for me....

EDIT: Oh yah...and a lifetime membership to HBT!!!

Forget the check, its your own dang money. At the end of the year, if you have a decent income you are just going to owe it back. (
