Most of this blog is some of the dumbest crap I've ever read.

It's like Guinness, but different. It has a slightly more sharper kick than the heavy kick that Guinness is known for. It's a very enjoyable stout.

Things are so much better now, it's not even funny. A lot everything is clicking, except my laptop that needs an operating system overhaul (read: format). After that happens, everything should be perfect. All of you people involved in my life better behave yourselves! That means you!

This stuff is very heavy, but great! Samuel Smith's makes some great stuff.

I'm starting to feel the stress of the holiday season. Actually, I'm feeling everyone else's stress and they seem to be dumping it on me.

Cheer up, everyone. Be happy.

Things are going great today. I haven't felt better in a while. As you can see, I'm not drinking that much beer anymore. It so happens that I am trying to work of this little belly issue. I'm one trim freak, but the beer seems to get to me as well.

For centuries, brewers have crafted special beers to celebrate winter. In this tradition, we brew our Samuel Adams Winter Lager to share with friends. This rich and heart dark lager is one of the finer pleasures of a winter evening. Cheers!

Awww! I have some new friends in Boston! :D

I hate when you make a nice long post, but the LJ server decides to not respond and upon pressing the back button, your entry is gone. That happened last night.

At any rate, that's over. The post is gone and you won't see what I have to say about the holiday season. :(

I saw Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets today with my brother. I decided to trade in our 3:30 PM tickets for 4:15 PM tickets so we could see the movie projected digitally. Yes, it was worth it. Yes, movies originally filmed on 35 mm can be transferred to DLP without any problems. My brother and I were the first to line up. The first to get seats (2/3 of the way from the front, known as the audio sweet spot) of a few hundred there. That's not what I want to get into, though. I wanted to talk to you about the movie.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is almost infinitely better than Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, a great movie within itself that I have seen many times. The acting was better, the special effects were better, and the portrayal of the story was better. It does have a lot to do with the Year 2 book being better than the Year 1 book, but there were other parts that came out very strong.

Hermione's was amazing. Her acting was absolutely sincere. She could pull of that teary eyed look so well. While Ron's voice was at first very shocking, it was again comfortable to hear after a few scenes. I can't think of one character that was casted anything else other perfect. Even Dobby, who idiotic journalists are comparing to Jar Jar from Star Wars, was great. The whole thing was just absolutely delightful.

I can't wait to talk about it with my dear good friend. My brother and I have certainly had our fun talking about it.

Well, my little brother was quite surprised to find an Xbox on my desk here. You see, I've been keeping it from him since I bought it a week ago. A lot of other people were in on it: my girlfriend, my parents, one of my co-workers, and my roommate. I told each of them that it would be great to see my brother's reaction. Just on Sunday I told him how much I wanted an Xbox, right before I left early so I could beat Halo. He just let out this huge gasp and then after a few questions, hit me a few times in the arm for keeping it from him.



Note to the person who knows who they are: I miss you. I miss you so much. I hope this doesn't last for long.

I beat it last night, almost 10 minutes after posting last night's entry. The ending was very good, and I cannot wait to play the second installment of this awesome story. It was very nice to see some old Bungie title references around the game. The human ship had a window that was essentially the Marathon II: Durandel logo, and I swear that every time I unloaded a rocket launcher cartridge, I read "SPYNK'R", a reference to the body-launching, splatting rocket launcher.

Me happy. :)

*sigh*

Things are good, and bad. Will I go to bed not feeling so good? Probably, but hopefully Star Trek Enterprise and West Wing will be good enough to let me forget about the things bothering me.

I purchased tickets for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets from Fandango.com for my brother and I. I have absolutely no problem admitting that I am the largest fan of Harry Potter in my family, and out of anyone I know with the exception of Lisa (*swoons*). I can't wait for this story to progress. It returns me to my childhood, reading adventurous novels like the "Chronicles of Narnia" and classics produced by Ronald Dahl and Beverly Cleary.

Remember a few entries ago while I was talking about reading novels? Well I was reading the Harry Potter series. I purchased the first two books on Thursday of the week before last, finished Year 1 on Friday, Year 2 on Saturday, purchased next two books on Saturday night, finished Year 3 on Sunday, and then finished Year 4 very late on Tuesday night. That's 1819 pages in 5 days. I was way too entertained by the books, and if you haven't given the Harry Potter books a try yet, I really suggest that you do.

This is a very heavy beer, with an everlasting bold flavor, yet it goes down extremely smooth. These bottles usually run at $2.50-$3.00 each, and while that is quite high at the other prices of beer, this is a really decent Friday night beer. You'll get about two glasses full, or one large stein of this very great beer from England.

Light beer isn't really... beer. It's this pathetic excuse for beers that include names like Natural Light, Bud Light, Miller Light. They're gross. Filtered urine.

Samuel Adams has done something different. They made a light beer a lot better. It's just not the marketing, they actually did it right. Try it. You can drink a few before you feel anything, and you don't have to put on the gut so fast. It's just like Spatan Premium with a little more foam. Not bad. Very light.

I've been getting back into reading novels again. It feels really great. Adventure, excitement, and dry wit! I love it!

Let's hope these San Francisco Giants can come out with a few more wins. Even if they do not, I am so proud of how far they went and how Bonds is doing in his first World Series appearance (4 home runs his first 3 games, at least 1 each game which is a record).

Did anyone see that ball he creamed in Game 2? I loved Salmon's reaction. His jaw dropped and you could read his lips saying, "That is the furthest ball I have EVER seen hit." The Angels were still talking about Bonds homer in today's batting practice. You want to know something interesting? Steroids would not allow someone to hit that far. There are so many factors that are related on the shape that Bonds is to hit that far. It looked like it went 800 feet. Seriously.
