Giving up on homebrew...

...I am a world class procrastinator. After dawdling over some homemade smoothies (foaming and skinning some store-bought I got for a pittance at a Kmart that was closing down), I finally just gave in and bought
these.


[edit]

Okay, my post-fu is on the fritz, let's try this again...

Trying again...

Well, that's sort of the result I wanted. I've gotten pictures on here before, what did I do wrong this time?

Man, look at all that rust. Time to whip out the sander and paint brushes.

The pro ones do look nice.

I thought I was going to be reading a thread about beer though.

I came here for the beer.

If I find myself in Salt Lake in the next year or so, I'll have to dig out my homebrew supplies.

Hmm, I did sort of confuse the issue of "homebrew," my first line even mentioned smoothies. Sorry guys.

In my defense, I once generated the most amazing batch of ginger ale, and have done a few really fine root beers. Nothing in the last few years though.

And now that's the second time somebody not even in the same state as me has gotten my own damn picture on this site more effectively than I. I mean, really.

I had hope you got a new blender like I did and started making the smoothies you drink/chew/eat.

Funny... first thing I thought too when you said homemade smoothies... I must be hungry and/or thirsty...

I thought it was beer smoothies... sounded gross, but I'll try anything with beer in it at least once.
