Sysadmin Day Celebration

On Friday, July 27, I will be celebrating System Administrator Appreciation Day (and potentially getting a job, depending).  My default place to celebrate is Old German Beer Hall.  But there are some others.  As I am fond of polls, here’s one:

Beer Recommendation: Mönchshof Kellerbräu

Mönchshof Kellerbräu

Mönchshof Kellerbräu

 

Mönchshof Kellerbräu is an unfiltered Kulmbacher lager.

It pours coffee brown from the bottle, building a huge mixed foam head.  It has a cloudy appearance.

The aroma is malty with a hint of bittering hops.  The foretaste is fruity with a balanced malt sweetness.  The mid taste continues the fruitiness and really ramps up the maltiness without becoming overly sweet, thanks to the hop bitterness.  The rear taste is mildly bitter and builds a very pleasant hop flavor with the perfect level of bitterness and doesn’t turn off the fruitiness.  The aftertaste is of rich, flavorful, gin-like hops and buttery-sweet malts.

This is an excellent beer for pairing with lightly-flavored meats like chicken, grilled pork, and sweet fruits.

Things that are insanely awesome

#1 Exhaust flappers

Exhaust Flapper

Exhaust Flapper

Exhaust flappers are just flat caps that sit on top of exhaust outlets and are attached to the pipes by hinges.  The idea is that when there’s sufficient gas pressure from the engine pushing exhaust out, the flap lifts to allow the gases to escape.  When there isn’t, the flap closes under its own weight, preventing rain from getting into the exhaust pipes and causing rust and other havoc.  My favorite time is when the engine is idling and the flap bobs up and down going “tink! tink!” every time it shuts.  :3

Twilight Zone Ep?

This came about because an overbearing drunken guest at the gf’s parents’ house last night kept trying to shove food in my mouth and was insistent I eat it even though I really didn’t care for it.

We were on our way somewhere for vacation.  We passed under a bridge where a high school Cross Country meet was happening and I ran into my old coach (yes, he is still coaching IRL despite being almost 80).  He forced me to work for him and was upset when I refused and Taylor started to leave in my car.  I decided “fuck pleasing the coach” and ran after Taylor.  🙂  (Even though I know she’d never do that to me IRL).  We needed to stop for the night so we stayed in the small town where the meet was taking place.  That’s when things got weird.
