    It's 8am and I'm craving BBQ and beer already. It's likely to be a looooong Friday.

    You're not alone in this... :( The maddening thing is I have 8 Pt5's sitting next to me under my desk at work taunting me.

    Screw it, it's Friday. Hang in there until noon, grab the beers and go watch B-ball.

    I'd rather be beaten with a hammer than watch basketball, especially college basketball. I was supposed to have the day off for a doctors appointment but I'm so busy at work (even though I'm on here) that I rescheduled it so I'm here until at least 3/3:30. :(

    I wonder what time FedEx usually stops by my target's work

    as promised, here are some pictures from WassailWilly. We have done a trade before and he killed that, so before I opened the box I knew there were some keepers.

    I was a tough one to search for since my wants and got were pretty much non existent beyond a style and a couple specific glasses. I am extremely stoked on this haul, that is for sure! something about gold rimmed glasses just looks so good haha.

    The Brooklyn shirt is awesome, first shirt in most likely a growing collection!
    Stickers for days! which is good because my garage fridge doesn't have anything on it.
    I am extremely happy for the bottle of Sickle and Scythe. I have been trying to try it out and haven't found it. so that will be consumed this weekend.

    Thanks again for the awesome box Bill!

    Hmmm...you're on my list of possible senders, and I get shipments sent to my work.
    My FexEx guy is lazy and doesn't usually get here until late in the day.
    After the box he brought me yesterday from the stout BIF, he might not even be working today.
    If he is, I could be looking at a very good weekend!!

    update, my box is scheduled to arrive at my target's address on Monday.

    friendly reminder... This is box 1 of 2. Box 2 is headed out on Monday so you should have something rad by next Friday also.

    I received an AWESOME box from LoPo87 this morning! Took a little maneuvering to get it inside since I broke my foot last night and I am still getting used to using crutches, but my efforts eventually paid off and I am VERY pleased with my haul!

    The haul:

    I am definitely in for the next round of this...who will start the Spring BIF after everyone gets their haul from this BIF? ;)

    Glad everything made it safely! Those socks cracked me up when I saw em. That bottle of Maybelle is going to be drinking fantastic in a few months (it's already delicious). It's a farmhouse ale aged in Chardonnay barrels spiked with Drie Fonteinen yeast. I also hope those block 15 bottle bags come in handy sometime!

    Big shout out to Sender and Hopsleeroy for trading me two of those glasses so I could actually send two wants!

    It sure does!! I just saw one moments ago when I unpacked a box full of glass and swag from Sender.
    Awesome haul, felt like I was a participant in a game show celled "Rooting around for swag".
    Sorry, but pics will have to wait until tomorrow, I'll be out until the wee hours of the night breaking in one of my new glasses.

    "Moist", as in fatty brisket which I prefer every day of the year to "dry" lean brisket. That shit is like meat butter.

    Nate: I will have to come over to your place for a GLASSWHALES photo shoot with the MM!PB glasses. We can make it a Mama Mia! Pizza night and try to use as many of their products as possible.

    This is not a request, but a demand.

    From a friend that works in the post office, I know I have a box which may or may not be for this BIF (I'm expecting a few trades coming in also). They aren't open until Tuesday, so I may have pictures then.

    Somebody's city is getting some nuisance weather today, but is doesn't appear to be affecting delivery of a package.
    If he's lucky, mine will not be the only present he gets today.
