Damn It Jim I'm A Beer Drinker, Not A Doctor!

So I felt a bout of unwellness coming on yesterday at work and decided to try some over the counter remedies when I got home. I started out with three Deschutes Inversion IPAs and followed that up with two Dogfish Head 90 Minute Imperial IPAs. Felt great last night for sure. Felt pretty good this morning too. Just don't think it took care of the bit of sickness taking hold. We'll see how the rest of the day goes, but I may be hunkering down in bed for the remainder of the weekend. Pbbbbbt.

Food & Movies

So we had a wine and cheese night last night. A nice bottle of wine and a great selection of cheese. Mmmmm, cheese. Mrs. LK picked up a nice selection of cheese and we cracked open a great bottle of wine. Mrs. LK is not around currently to verify the types of cheese, but my best guess is as follows. Some very nice Point Reyes Blue that went very well with a fig spread. Also, some Saint Andre Triple Creme which is probably one of the best cheeses ever. Ev. Er. There was also some Kerrygold Dubliner Irish Cheddar which is a personal favorite, some Parmagiano Reggiano and lastly some Cotswald. This of course was accompanied by some thinly sliced French baguette and some Beecher's Original Style crackers. There were also some grapes, but I didn't waste any time with those.

On the wine front we cracked open a bottle of BV Georges de Latour Private Reserve 2003. It certainly could have spent more time in the bottle, but it was absolutely fantastic with our cheese assortment. So good. I'm drooling thinking about it.

The entertainment was provided by Netflix "View On Demand". I've been contemplating signing up for Netflix for a while now and did so last night. While signing up I saw that they offer some movies on demand as part of the plan I selected. Now I didn't really want to watch a movie on the laptop. I hooked up the laptop to the surround receiver and we were able to watch full screen movies on the TV with decent sound. The Netflix on demand isn't perfect. There are brief skips throughout the movie, but nothing that makes the movie not enjoyable to watch. Overall I was very happy with this bonus feature of Netflix. Woohoo.

As for the movies well we started with Bullitt which I hadn't seen before. I liked it. We weren't done with our cheese and wine yet so I looked for something else and picked Superbad on a whim. I wasn't expecting much from the movie. Turns out both of us enjoyed it quite a bit. The wine may have helped.

All in all a great night. Maybe a little too great for Mrs. LK. Someones tummy was a bit off kilter after all the rich cheese and tasty wine. I felt fine if not just a little bit full.

This Just In!

Missed It By This Much...

Actually no I didn't.

So at last weeks championship bout I purchased some raffle tickets to support my LADD which I always do. Historically I've won a lot of stuff. T-Shirts, stickers, a skate board deck, CDs, womens clothing, etc. You name it, I've probably won it. Last week was no different. Half time arrived and I made my way, alone, without Mrs. LK or the Chinese Jetpilot or Fancypants, to the stage area where they do the raffle. Quite a few tickets in and I haven't won anything and I'm thinking it's just going to be one of those nights. No big deal. I'm really just buying the tickets to support the league and whether I win shwag or not I'm still a winner if they keep skating.

Well I gave up a little early on winning because just as I start to think it sure enough I win. Two tickets to a show at the Bootleg Theatre just a couple blocks away from the Doll Factory. Even after reading the description of the tickets I'm not sure what kind of show it is. Not much said about it on the Bootleg Theatre myspace page either. Well we'll see if we make it or not. If anyone is interested in the tickets let me know. I'm sure I could be persuaded to part with them for a small fee. Very small, free. Anyway I'm figuring that's it for me for the night. They actually had two pairs of Kings tickets for an upcoming game. While I'm not a Kings fan I'd certainly go and do one of two things. The first being root for whoever is playing the Kings that night or if the team they were playing was a hated SJ rival, like say Dallas, I'd root for the Kings.

So the numbers are called and I'm looking at my tickets. Damn I missed the tickets by one number. One freakin' number. Ah well no matter. I headed back to the track to watch the second half of a really close match. It was a great game and the refs did a great job communicating to the crowd just what the heck they were doing. Awesome and thank you to the LADD Enforcers. The match ended with the Cookies the winners. I headed back to the car to head home and to bed since I had to be at work at 6AM the next day.

Sunday after returning home from work I took a last look at my tickets before tossing them in the garbage. Well as it turns out I did have the winning ticket, but had too damn many tickets in my hand to properly identify it. Doh! Dumbass. The highest ticket I saw on Saturday night was 915334 and the winning ticket was 915335. So I can do a couple of things next time to remedy this type of situation. One is to buy fewer tickets. Yeah right. The second is to make sure I have someone there with me to help me sort my tickets. That seems like the best way to go. Now if I can only find some reliable accomplices.

I did get a Sirens cheering rag though. Woohoo!

2008 Los Angeles Derby Doll Champions

Congratulations to the...

Way to skate ladies! Woohoo!

Well I've seen all three of the remaining original teams win a championship. Will the rookie Varsity Brawlers go all the way in 2009? That would be tough. Good luck though.
