I was walking through Walgreens the other nite looking for a toilet plunger and a white out pen when i happened upon the magazine rack. You and i both know theres rarely any good magazines there or any supermarket for that matter. After flipping through Lowrider i cracked a smile when i saw the cover of GQ- Clint Eastwood with "badass of the year 2009" written next to him. If you watched Gran Torino you know why.
while looking for some eastwood pics, i found a dude that appears to know everthing there is to know about clint.

its this time of year that makes me wonder why the hell i like it up here. Its not bad yet, but its the doom before the gloom. the thermometer has been staying in the 40s but you can tell its soon to end... predictions of snow for thanksgiving. only a matter of time before we get some ice....

So Peach and i had some running around to do yesterday to get his bsa sent off to its new owner in NY. Somewhere between it all, Peach offered to buy a round at the St. Francis Brewery on the south side of town. Naturally, I had to accept. We got there and we were the only two people there besides the bartender and the Natalie Portman look-a-like waitress. Peach ordered the Archbishop Amber, and i got a pint of the Southshore Stout, both super good! The Stout had a real nice dark flavor to it with that hint of chocolate, and the Amber tasted almost exactly like Yuengling, my all-time favorite American beer. We figure if theres 5 different flavors of beer, its in our best interest to get a sampler try them all. They even give you a sample of their "49 maples root beer" - its got a hint of maple syrup in it that makes it all the sweeter. The bartender also informed us that we could get a half-gallon jug of beer to go for a small fee, AND the best part.... while all of milwaukee stops selling beer at 9pm, St. Francis Brewery can sell you one of their jugs of beer until mid-nite!! Peach and i both agreed the Archbishop Amber was tops and he picked up a half-gallon jug.
Stop in if you are in mke and looking to try some small time brewery beer. super tasty, and super friendly staff..... even if they wouldn't let us go skinny dipping in the vats of beer.

so the running joke that i've never been able to figure out is "kiss a woman where it stinks.... take her to cudahy." it's not that i don't understand the joke, I just don't understand how a city that has the overwhelming smell from Patrick Cudahy bacon factory can be called stinky. personally, I'd love to walk out the front door and smell smoked applewood bacon, but whatever...
here's his display in the back room: all costumes and props used in the new Rob Zombie version of Halloween. me, I'll stick to my Jamie Lee Curtis, but i still thought this was cool.
If you're into it, and you're looking for something rare, give Graveyard Records a call @ (414) 486-1751

I ususally try to go to a fish fry on friday evenings, but last nite i just wasnt feeling it and decided to cook up the last two tamales in the fridge instead. I got a call from eugene saying him and his buddy jeremiah were up at warrens shop playing swap meet. I rode over to see them and sell jeremiah a fuel tank when i spotted a roller project on the lift with a nice set of forks that caught my eye.... warren was using it in a trade and didnt care what length tubes went with it, so i offered a little swap, and wa-lah!
