    Any bets on when Tertullian007's next post will be? I'm betting he is not getting out of bed today so 10am Sunday.

    For realz though, thanks to cuzco for putting this BIF together, to Houser for being a gracious target, to goblinmunkey for the tutorial on packaging, and to the 3 traders I am working with now, hophead717, borisskarloff and Fremontbar. You all have been gracious to me as a noob BIFer. I haven't had this much fun in a long time. And thanks to all the rest of you, this has been fun and entertaining. I look forward to many more BIFs and trades in the future.

    CLaBarre, I'm truly sorry this is happening.....your box (or whatever's left of it) should be there Monday (as in 2 days from now).

    This BIF was awesome(and expensive), what started with a trade with Tertullian007 for a 2010 Dissident has now led to me packing up 30 bottles in Wolfpack's awesome BIF box to send his way. 20 wants(could have had 5 more but could not cram anymore into box). Thanks for making me feel special by having a lot of wants and even shittier distribution than me. This should stock up your supply you damaged last night.

    I'm glad I read that before I shipped out your lousy box of 6 bottles. Looks like I need to unpack that shitty box and add a few brews.

    Yeah things got out of hand so wasn't expecting that that big of a box in return, I thought you already shipped so don't unpack, as long as there is at least one pumpkin beer in your box I will be happy.

    Quick update:

    Finished bottle one of WWS 2011, and decided to switch it up. Half with through a bottle of 2011 cockeyed cooper from uinta. If anyone one wants an approachable BB Barleywine at a decent price point with 2.5 years age on it let me know.

    As for my drunkeness....

    If you get drunk by yourself are you really drunk...

    I peed on the toilet seat and got yelled at by my wife.

    Other than that, doing just fine...

    If you're drunk enough to use a toilet instead of the outdoors or a sink, you probably aren't _that_ drunk.

    Wedding reception is wrapping up, then were relocating to stone company store liberty station. If my battery survives ill do my best to contribute to tonight's shenanigans.

    Downside, phone is at less than 20% battery.

    Upside, I'm about to drink my first of several Avery uncle Jacobs.

    The likelihood of messing myself just went up exponentially.

    No regrets.
