So Rachael posted this two days ago and I accidentally came across it:

friends of jason - lol

Jan. 25th, 2009 | 05:10 pm

you can tell Jason that I was mean to him in e-mails because he was cheating on me and treating me like shit for months and lying about it so HE could still fuck me as well.

Wow, I must have some magic goddamn pussy or something.

wwaaaaa,,, I donno why Rachael is so mean to me. *vomit*
WHAT THE FUCK? I never once said anything bad about her to anyone and she feels the need to spread this shit around???  Maybe if She actually had at least pretended to show some interest in me every once in a while when she was sober it would have helped things. But no. She couldn't even manage that.  You should try dating someone who doesn't know how to show affection some time.  It's a great experience.  :-P

For the record. I was NOT treating her like shit. I would hate for her to have to find out what being treated like shit really is if she thinks that the way I treated her was like shit. heh... And I knew exactly why Rachael was being so mean to me. I couldn't handle her mean whiny, self absorbed attitude anymore. I was trying to find a graceful way out of the situation and obviously failed miserably. I waited far too long because I didn't want to hurt her. I should have just walked away and let her deal with it. It would have been easier but I couldn't see just how bad things were getting until they were too far gone.

I don't regret much in my life. I DO regret hooking up with this psycho... It will probably haunt me the rest of my life...

Fuck... I wish I wouldn't have seen her stupid childish entry on accident... Now I'm just pissed.

Shit that is below me but I'll type it anywayCollapse )

Oh well. Good riddance to bad rubbish. So glad I'm out.

Rapier Rapier Rapier... I fought rapier all practice last night. I would like to get authorized before Estrella so I will be fighting rapier for the next two weeks. I must say that I really enjoy it. I think that it will only help my Armored Combat skills. I want to get authorized in rapier because it's a fun sport AND I am bringing the rapier community into the official Caidan Army. As of this coming weekend at 12th Night (Unless something happens) there will be a new Corps in the army. Pretty sweet if you ask me. We already have an archery corps and an artillery corps so it is only natural that we have a rapier corps.

So yeah, Fought Rapier all night and was exhausted at the end of the night... Whoever says that rapier is not physically exhaustive should try it out some time. Sure, each individual fight is not as tiring as fighting in full armor but I fought WAY more fights than I would have fought in my armor... So anyway. Good times had by all. And everyone was very encouraging. :-) So if any of you are reading this, I appreciate your support in getting me where I want to be. With any luck (and skill I guess) I will be fighting along side the rapier community for some battles at Estrella.

I'm also going to be re-structuring the army here soon... :-| I inherited an army that is falling apart and desperately needs fixing. Units are either falling apart or simply dont exist anymore. I have a lot of work ahead of me... But I think I am up to it. Things are falling into place easier with the seneschal position than before now that I have some experience so I can start working with the Army now. Good times...

As of last night Rachael and I are no longer together...  It's a long story that I wont be going into in my public journal but suffice it to say that neither of us could be what the other needed.  We both want to still be friends and hang out and all that... we just don't work as lovers.  Sad... but it will be better in the long run I think.

Now we're gonna have to try to find places to live...  *sigh*

See you tomorrow at Crown?

OK. Hi everyone….
Started out with us walking to the train station a couple blocks from work. Earlier in the week I had a conversation Eric about how you could smoke on the streets of San Fran and nobody would care. Well, on the way to the train we passed a cop who was talking to some guys. He was saying that even though they were using it for medicinal purposes the really shouldn’t be smoking on the corner there. (Still in Mountain View). He also said that every county enforces it differently and that it would be different if they were in San Franscisco nobody would even bat an eye. Thought that was a rather interesting thing for a cop to be telling someone.
Got to the train. It was one of those double decker ones. Pretty sweet. Bought a day pass for the train (Same price as two one way trips - $11.50) and hopped aboard. Passed a lot of cool scenery and about 45 mins later we were in San Fran. Got off the train and bought a street car ticket ($1.50) that was good till 10:30. Pretty sweet. Wouldn’t have to buy another one for the return trip J The street car was CROWDED… There was a very long section where it was all underground. Very cool. Around this time I realized that my phone was at 12% battery power K No phone calls for me unless it’s an emergency… Don’t want to be out of power especially in a new city.
Got off the street car and walked to the Toronado which was a couple blocks away. When we got there the place was PACKED. I mean crazy packed. Apparently it is standard for most bars on Haight to be packed every night…. Stood around for a bit waiting on Andrew so I ordered a Foedre #3. Not my thing. Tasted like a fermented wine/beer hybrid. Very sweet and yet very bitter. Actually made my stomach hurt a bit. Turns out that a lot of people weren’t that excited about it cause there were full glasses of it sitting around that nobody was drinking. Hahaha
Finished that one (wasn’t going to waste it even though I didn’t like it) and ordered a Franziskaner Hefe which was pretty damn good. J I’ve included a review of the Hefe below.
We found a table in the back that nobody was using so grabbed it and waited for Andrew to show up. Andrew showed up and we hung out for a while and chatted. He bought me a beer if I would go get em so I went up and ordered two Pliny the Elder’s cause that’s what Andrew was drinking. At the bottom is a review of Pliny as well that is pretty spot on.
After that beer we headed out because we were running late and weren’t sure if I was going to make the Street car to get back to the train on time. When we got to the closest trolly station we saw that I had missed it and the next one would be there in 20 mins.    Boarded the next trolly hoping that it would be a little ahead of schedule but when I got to the train station at 10:35 it was to late. Ah well. Midnight would be the next train so I sat in the terminal with a couple other people. After a LONG hour wait the train finally boarded and took me back to Mountain View where I had a 30 min walk or so to negotiate back to the hotel. 
I’ve never been so glad to get to a hotel before… hahahaha Most comfortable bed ever….
So that’s my adventure in a nutshell. Might be more details but it’s lost in the fog of good beer.
Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse
Had this on tap at Krumme Lanke in Berlin in June of 2008. Was almost perfectly suited for being next to a small lake in the evening in Germany.

Served in a Weizen glass. Sort of like a tornado of sweet beer. Lighter towards the bottom and darker where the glass has a bigger diameter, finally ending in a playful head that was served just right. Very pretty color sfor a hefeweizen- soft gold to almost a medium tan towards the top.

Aroma was also very commendable- smelled lightly of yeast, but mostly of margerine (not buttery like diacetyl.. more soft and sweet).

Taste was phenomenal. Smooth and sweet, I was really impressed by the taste it left in my mouth afterwards. Alternated between the sweet, taffy like flavor in the beer and some residual mild hop flavor.

On top of this, this was some of the best water quality in a beer that I've ever experienced that contributed to the overall experience of the beer. The soft and fluid water went really well with the overall feeling of the beer. Furthermore, with every sip I wanted more. Nothing was excessive, nothing seemed corny or unnecessary. Very good.

I feel like this was a different experience than when I drank this from a bottle in America, however, so I'll have to go back and check.
Pliny The Elder
Poured from a fresh flip top Russian River growler gotten via trade with ricand (of which I can never thank him enough for). Great trader, great beer, props to him. Poured from the growler into my nonic pint glass.

A: A light copper orange color. Very light color for a DIPA. Nice deep 2 finger head from the growler pour with very nice carbonation. The grolwer kept the beer in perfect condition. Nice sticky glass lacing.

S: Wow, hops, hops, hops. This beer is a different animal fresh. Smells of pine hops with some mild citrus and sweet malt undertone.

T: Again wow. Massive amounts of pine like chewing on a pine cone. Pine coupled with some floral flavors and some mild citrus backed up by a nice deep malt sweetness. A perfect balance of the massive hops with the malt sweetness and a nice lingering bitterness. Make no mistake, this beer is about the massive amounts of sticky chewy hops and it showcases them perfectly.

M: Medium with a sticky resiny mouthfeel. Nice carbonation and bitterness that lasts. You taste this beer well after it's gone.

D: This is probably the most drinkable double IPA out there. It goes down so easily and it remains enjoyable with every sip.

Overall this is the beer of gods, and for that it will garner my first perfect 5. This is a perfect beer in it's fresh state. I reviewed Pliny from a keg that was tapped here on the east coast, but it didn't hold a candle to the fresh Pliny. All I can say is I was blown away. Thanks again to ricand for allowing me to enjoy this perfect beer.

Lets see how well this works. Im posting this from my cell phone. yay fun!

Im in Vegas this weekend... what a weekend to come to Vegas... it's supposed to be 110 degrees this weekend with lows in the high 80's. But it's Corey's b-day this weekend... I was pretty grumpy last night... I was not expecting to be crammed in the back of a small car with two other people for the entire trip... started feeling slightly claustrophobic which only made me pissier.... fortunately I ended up falling asleep so that heped but didn't help the grumpy. When we got here everyone was drinking and having a good ol time but I was still all bitchy so I went up to the bedroom and slept. Yay for me...

So here I am. Viva Las Vegas!!!!!

I don't like to use my journal to complain publicly but AW HELL.  I was doing laundry last night and Rachael come up to me with something in her hand while we are taking clothes out of the dryer and asks me "Is this a game"

No... it isn't a game... it's $150....  or I should say it WAS $150....  Now it's a melted pile of slag....



Oh well.
