Fun fun! Last night I met globetrotter1 for a Guinness or six at "my home base" pub, The Irish Embassy. Good times, good times, thanks for showing me a great time, Anne!

I am back in my hotel room. Went to meetings all day then came back for a bit and left again to get...more poutine! Now I am stuffed from that (and a Delirium Tremens and Affligem from The Fat Belgian). I'm considering going to a party the society puts on for us techs but I am too stuffed to move comfortably. Maybe if this huge ball of potatoes, cheese and gravy moves along soon I'll make it.

Edit: I haven't gone to this tech party since the first conference I went to about ten years ago because it was LAME! Well, I made it to this years (I gulped down a HUGE Stella before leaving the hotel to prep myself, thank god) and it was just like I remembered the last one: Serious sausage-fest with a bunch of nerds wearing khakis and polo shirts or, worse yet, horrible dinner jackets with patches on the pockets (wtf, is that your yacht club jacket?) I even saw a guy with an all-white jacket. Oh lord. Anyway, I drank a couple nasty domestic (Canadian) beers and got the fuck out. Not to worry though, I just ordered fish and chips from room service, pray they have some better movies on demand than The Curious Tale of Benjamin Fucking Button. Best bet, anyway, since I have to start meetings at 8 am (ye gods) tomorrow and I also fly back (yay) tomorrow. Pimpin' ain't easy.

Hey, weren't you guys going to brew a Belgian-style beer next?

We brewed an ESB and tasted it tonight. Could be decent, but it's still pretty flat. Belgian style will be our pinnacle achievement!

Ha! I was just thinking I was smelling a little beer-y.

Oh, and I got my poutine from Smoke’s Poutinerie, which I found from the blog you sent me. It was damn good!
