    Hey Mel, do I have the go-ahead to order the mead?

    Also, what MN breweries/beers and styles should I bring to you? I have access to some good stuff. Have you had Forager Sherpa's Survival Kit yet?

    Not sure how it works, but set it up for pickup Father's Day weekend, and I'll get it done.

    I haven't had anything from Forager. Looked it up, sounds right up my alley.
    I was told there would be no math...

    Cool.

    It is very simple. I buy online, put your name in as a trustee/proxy, and the mead just needs to be picked up at the bar/meadery within 30 days.

    Most of my "attainable" dream car choices I can shoot down.

    Corvette - I'd be too afraid of driving it on a bad road/over a speed bump and farking it up. Dad's got one and he's petrified to drive it on half the roads around town.
    Mustang - Never liked them. No real reason why, and I completely agree it's an unfair assessment and they've improved massively. Guess the '90s/early '00s V6 crapboxes tainted my view. Plus DAE Cars and Coffee crowd crashes amirite.
    Camaro - Actually drove one as a rental, sightlines are just too claustrophobic for me.
    Hellcat - Just start planning my funeral now.
    BMW - Nope. German engineering is brilliant and world-class until the moment something breaks. Then it's an expensive hot mess that costs ten times more than it should to fix because reasons. Plus I'd like to not be THAT guy.
    Audi - See above.
    Porsche - See above.
    Golf GTI - See above - I've heard they get spendy to maintain above 60K miles.
    WRX/Evo - Hard veto. TOO good for me to handle. I don't trust myself with one. I know enough Forza to be dangerous.
    370Z - Meh. Chunky looking and needs a model refresh badly.
    Import Skyline - Let's all play "International Logistical, Financial, and Mechanical Nightmare!" I'll start!
    Any motorcycle - Hard veto. My dad is a former rider and told me I'm the last person he ever wants to see on a bike - it takes a certain kind of person to track EVERYTHING going on around you, and I'm not it.
    Tesla - Would have to run 240V from the house to charge it, and I'm not...quite...sold on Elon Musk. He did good on the Model S, but his ego is getting the better of him with respect to the problems cropping up on the Model 3.

    You could talk me into:

    Lotus Elise - Actually has a Toyota engine known for being pretty reliable. Suspect everything else on it would be spendy, though.
    Honda Civic Type R - Smashing reviews, FWD so I don't do something moronic. But God the design screams boy racer.
    Kia Stinger GT - My current "gun to your head, buy a $50K sports car right this second" choice. Excellent performance for the money, comes in AWD (or RWD if I'm feeling brave,) enough power/weight to be interesting but not get me killed, solid warranty, well put together, okay interior, a bargain for the price.
    What? No Lambo??

    Re: Rep Retirement Lodge 196: Spam, Spam, Spam

    Hey there Lodge peeps. Full day today. Things getting busy at work. Left the office at lunch time to head over to campus for the press conference announcing our new coach. Because I was gone for a couple of hours, I wound up staying till about 6. On the way out, one of the girls in my department was leaving at the same time and she mentioned how she was going to the Scooper Bowl to meet her sister. The Scooper Bowl is this awesome fundraising event put on by the Jimmy Fund, which is part of the Dana-Farber Cancer Center. Anyway, it's all ice cream tasting. You pay $15 to get in, get a spoon, and there are a bunch of ice cream companies that sample ice cream all day. It was a perfect day for it. I had about seven different kinds of ice cream before I headed home. I love this event.

    Just packed a bunch of stuff. I'm heading up to my parents' tomorrow night to stay for a bit. My mother is having some surgery on Friday morning. It should be outpatient. I'm a little more nervous about it than I think I need to be. She's almost 84. Any surgery when you're that old has the potential to not go well. She had an EKG and blood tests and she's fine, but still, I'm anxious. Also, the reason I'm going to go stay there is also to be there for my dad. He really can't do much for himself and he certainly can't care for her. In addition to her surgery, my dad has an appointment with his PCP on Tuesday and he also has an endoscopy scheduled for Thursday so I need to take him to both because she can't drive. So, I'm working from home (their place) plus taking vacation time. I will be able to go into the office on Wednesday and part of Thursday. Please think happy thoughts for me!! Will keep you posted.

    Because mel is so awesome and is willing to pickup and haul mead to the UP for me, I just dropped $450 on some of the finest liquid money can buy. Drooling already.

    Not far behind. Mel: the Peruvian Morning 4pk is on me, and have one other local bottle for you that I think you'll like.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    The 718 (Cayman) starts in the upper $50K range. They're darn nice too - lightweight stripped-down quick handlers. Still, the German maintenance costs would scare me off.

    You could talk me into:

    Cadillac has me hooked. I want a V-Series. Preferably the CTS-V, but the ATS-V would also do. Total sleeper. Four door sedan. 6.2L Supercharged V8. 640 horses.

    Good Evening, Lodge!

    I was joking with my parents saying that my next door neighbor is selling their townhouse and they should buy it. Next thing I know, they ask me to contact my realtor to help them start the process of finding a place somewhere south of the river.
