Drink #1: Bell’s Brewery Two Hearted Ale
Ingested at Churchkey in Washington D.C. with Erica V.S.
I particularly enjoyed this glass because of the foam brontosaurus left behind–believe me, this was WAY more exciting at the time of discovery (the “Double Rainbow” effect), but is still exciting sober.
Drink #2: The Hendrick
Ingested at Swig with Lauren
If you like Hendrick’s gin, you can’t help but love this drink–75% Hendrick’s gin, 20% lime juice, 5% sour mix, shaken with ice and garnished with a slice of cuke. Wow. This one hits you fast.
Drink #3: Bloody Mary
Ingested at Rusty’s Backwater Saloon with “Nikolai”
Good Lord, now THIS is a bloody… perhaps the finest I’ve ever consumed. A special recipe and a load of fixin’s including an impressive beef stick planted right down the middle. Don’t forget the chaser. This one you’re gonna have to work for (TomTom recommended)–on the outskirts of Stevens Point, WI and a challenging ride out when driving through thick fog, no street lights, and poorly marked roads.
I highly recommend trying these three–and let me know when you’re going so I can order one, too!
Thank you, bitter-albeit-creative Vikings fan from the Metrodome parking lot–this was the best $10 I spent in 2010.
Thanks so much to our family and friends in attendance–Lauren and I enjoyed celebrating with you!

If you really can’t stand sitting in morning traffic–there is an alternative. Just depends how much you want to risk…
This dad should win some kind of award. I was secretly hoping the gray birds would split into three pieces mid-air, but I guess fondant (and real life) doesn’t work like that…
For most, the thrill of a tax return quickly subsides when you realize it’s money that should have been in your pocket anyway but the government has been sitting on it for the past 12 months. But for a debt-ridden student without a paycheck, I can get legitimately excited to get a return almost as large as my annual income from Kaplan this year. This is the first (and probably only) year I qualify for an education credit–score!
My dad clued me in to TaxSlayer several years ago–it is freaking awesome. Incredibly simple and takes hardly any time. It will set you up for direct deposit, file both the state and federal returns, and you can create digital copies of all the forms. Fees vary between $10-15 for everything, depending on how complicated your taxes are.
Another great tool that comes in handy for taxes…and everything really…is CutePDF—a free program that allows you create PDFs by “printing” just about anything. Rather than selecting an actual printer, you select “CutePDF” and it prints a digital copy to the location on your computer you choose. I use this one weekly…check it out!
Busy preparing for Nait’s Stag Party / Bachelor Party / Funeral at CustomInk. I’ve used them a couple time before and they do a really nice job, particularly if you are putting in small orders.
Which one is it–stag party or bachelor party?
After watching some amazing wedding films created by the guys at GEBBS, I discovered Poptent–a site that hired amateurs to create viral video and commercials for big-name companies. For all you with a knack for this, get on it (and make me an extra)!
