Can't say we're on the same page WRT the sex issue, but the joy of
fine brewed beverages sends me down the neander route. You need a
clear head for power tool work, but if I've got a stack of chair
spindles in the shave pony, or some mortising chisel work to do,
surface planing the benchtop, break out the Stone IPA or Guiness, and
enjoy the quiet.

I'm drinking a Saranac IPA as I type, and I gotta tell you, it tastes
pretty good. It's funny how my beer tastes have changed over the
years. Now I seem to be pretty much all over the map!
A dozen Duvels on an empty stomach?
Minor beer gloat - I've worked a few times
with a painter named Seguitas who was
in the Russian army and kisses the hands
of prospective female customers when
you recommend him for a job, and the
other day he says, "you goink be here
tomorrow? I bring beer. Good Lithuanian
beer," and I thought, uh oh, one of those
lunches that lasts until dinnertime. So
he was on the job the next morning, went
to his beat up station wagon with the
ladders on top, opens the back door and
drags me out a whole case of Svyturys
Lithuanian beer. It's very tasty stuff,
though I'm no connoiseur. Kind of like
Old Style without the bitter aftertaste.
He's a good painter, too, but doesn't
charge enough for his work.
You're drinking Old Style (or I am).
After you sip it, there's this agreeable,
full-bodied flavor. Then, somewhere
between the sip and the swallow is
a distinctly bitter taste. This Svyturys
stuff is the full-bodied flavor and no
bitter. I'm regretting there are only
4 bottles left. I'll have to ask Seguitas
where he got it, probably up on Belmont
Avenue in Chicago's Russian neighborhood
