As a Mets fan I’ve had little to cheer for, especially the past few years. Last night I wound up at Taco Mac (surprise, surprise) alone (more surprise, surprise) where I drank a few glasses of beer with my chips and queso and watched the Mets beat the Braves. Hurrah! Well, I watched most of the game on tv… Weather permitting tomorrow I will make it down to Turner Field for the final game of this Mets v. Braves series.
I Put The “I” In “Procrastination”
For months I talked about writing an iOS (iPhone / iPad) application for Taco Mac Brewniversity management. MONTHS! But, I did nothing about it. Yesterday ITP-Reader Bob informed me that there is now such an app available in the iTunes store; it’s called “TM Beer.” Sonnabitch!
I’m currently unable to give you a review of this application because each time I attempted to log on last night I received an error message telling me that I was unable to communicate with the server. I’m wondering whose server that was because while I didn’t try to use Taco Mac’s website last night, I was able to connect to their Wandering WiFi service and surf the internet whilst consuming my beer.
[UPDATE: Well that sucks. I finally got to log in and the data was all messed up. I tried to go to the Taco Mac Brewniversity website to change my password and am getting an error telling me that my old password is incorrect. And now I’m waiting on the “Password Reset” mail to arrive. Me thinks my account is royally screwed up now. Dangen!]
I Finally Put The “Return” In “Home Depot.” Wait, That Makes No Sense.
I am notoriously bad with returning things I’ve purchased but did not need. Months ago I bought an Ethernet cable crimper only to find out that I already own an Ethernet cable crimper. Huh, go figure. For months I’ve toted that Ethernet cable crimper in the trunk of the Jackmobile. Yesterday, a mere week before the expiration of the return period, I made it into a Home Depot to reclaim the $17 dollars I spent on the tool. And that $17 paid for my trip to Taco Mac. See how the world comes around… I call it “Stimulating the Economy.”
Today I’ve dressed in shorts and flip-flops (don’t be jealous, you could have gone to college and become a software developer too). I think it’s time to make some piping hot coffee, or if the temperature doesn’t rise, make a trip over to Target to purchase some jeans and socks.
It’s Top Chef Masters Finale Night
I know that it’s only ITP-Reader Betsy and me that gives a Rat’s Ass about Top Chef Masters but regardless tonight is the final episode for this season. I was considering making a helluva dinner for tonight’s finale but Betsy has mentioned having tilapia, and I’m considering making a stop at Kroger on my way home tonight to pick up some wine and perhaps the fixings for hamburgers.
