    Watching carolina Go To HELL!

    I put up a post that said "Go To Hell carolina, Go To Hell" 1000 times, but I bumped up against a character limit (in the threads, not in me ) so I had to truncate it a bit to post it. Devildeac listed 1000 beers, 10 at a time so he could PW (post whore) an extra 100 threads.

    I see that Sue71 is also at 999. Congrats in advance to you both!
    Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!

    I spent a semester of college in Glasgow. For the last week I was there, we did a roadtrip around the highlands, which was fun as I got to drive on the wrong side of the road in a manual transmission car with the gear shift on the wrong side.

    When I flew home to Nebraska, the parents made the mistake of letting me drive - I just did what came naturally, and started driving on the left!

    They didn't let me drive again for that trip...

    (The weather transition was pretty drastic too, but there's nothing nice about going to Nebraska in December... I think the forecast is for a high of 15 degrees when I arrive next week. )

    Thanks (sighs gently here). And I do remember (sighs gently again).

    I had Master PWers leading the way.

    Now there's Lavabe and bb and it gets lonely out here sometimes...

    70+ here in the Triangle with thunderstorm and tornado warnings to the north and east of us. The temps are nice but they sure are dangerous.

    I think you'll be getting all the wind and rain leftovers we had here in the Triangle today but yours may be the frozen type.

    I usually review a special beer.

    My suggestion would be to write a novel (or a play) and post it here.

    Minor correction here. I listed the 1000 beers alphabetically by brewery so I think I only came up with about 23 or 24 extra posts as I combined some letters and IIRC there was a letter or two with no breweries.

    I briefly considered listing the beers 1 per post but thought better about it, though it was/is a great PW idea. Maybe at another milestone...
