Har! When they pry the beer from my cold, dead, manicured hands?

Hey! I have a beer fridge (it's my old college dorm mini-fridge)... Does that mean they're coming after me?

Cause I'll open up a can of whoop ass if I have to....

(If I can find the can. I think it's in the fridge too).

First...sigh...and second.

"Scientists have found a new threat to the planet: Canadian beer drinkers."

Well, I'm glad that we're threatening to something.

"Clearly the environmental implications of having a frivolous luxury like a beer fridge are not hitting home."

Lady, a beer fridge ain't a luxury, it's one of the main requirements for life here.

"whatever Canadians eat besides doughnuts and poutine."

You forgot back bacon.


I have never been so proud to be a Canadian. Our unique cutlure has finally been recognized. Time to go home, open the beer fridge and pop a top in celebration of this great honour.

P.S. We're an upper middle class family, so we have two beer fridges.

ArcticAl - what's a 'cutlure'? Some kind of bait?

Around these parts, having the second fridge is a sign that you've arrived. We bought a new one, though - do I get a merit badge or sumtin?

Annie my typing degrades after I start opening the beer.

The bait is kept in the other old fridge by the way.

I suggest this woman try to wipe with one sheet of TP.
Her comments have the same calm, common-sense tone to them as that other woman.

Hey! They need those to keep the beer from freezing!

I'd convert to Canadianism if someone would just give me a beer fridge.

ArcticAl - then I'm jealous. I do have a beer fridge here at work, though. Shhhhh!

Five O'Clock!

*heads for the beer fridge*

I was baptized a Republican, but have converted to Canadianism, Howard. Eucharist is much better with beer.

*starts to ready handbasket*

What about my wine fridge??

We have wine in with the beer Siouxie. We swing both ways. And also tonic to go with the gin, ginger ale to go with the rye, coke to go with the rum....

*Puts on morally superior air*

WE are Californians - it is not environmentally proper to have an extra fridge in the garage.

*has to laugh, because the guy who says this exact sentence, asked for a "35 bottle wine cooler, with tempered glass door, frost free" for Christmas, with not a hint of irony, nor guilt*

I'll take "Self-Indulgent" for $200, Alex ...

Next those wacky Canucks will be littering their landfills with old beer fridges instead of recycling them into front porch flowerpots.

wow, Al!! Can I be a Cuban Canuck??

Awbh....I'm disappointed....anybody knows old fridges are for Hot Tubs

*flaps in for a moment*

Siouxie, wouldn't that be a Canuckuban? ;-)

OT/

I've been working TOO MUCH and hardly have any time AT ALL to blog and I MISS Y'ALL! And I have to fly off AGAIN!

/End OT

*flaps away*

*snork* @ Ducky!

brilliant! miss you too!

It's Canada--can't they just put the beer outside for a little while to chill it?

I forgot - it's migration time for Just Ducky.

My windshield got smashed by a free-range beer fridge on the Al-Can highway.

*waves @ Siouxie!!!*

*WAVES back @ Hammie!!!!*


where've you been stranger???

Beer fridge as a luxury?

This is a definition of luxury that I was not previously aware of.

Hey, Hammie!! *Waves!!!*

feelsinsanely jealous morally superior for not owning a beer fridge.

What's poutine? Sounds nasty.

*Waves @ DD!!!!*
I've just spent a joyous week in the hospital with my daughter. She had an accident and managed to break both bones in her left leg and shatter both ankles, adding in an open fracture at the very end just for fun. So, Thanksgiving has been interesting. On the bright side, she has a new, stuffed squirrel, that I have convinced her to name "Dave."

Wow Hammie! That's awful. Sending good vibes your way for her speedy recovery.

and PERFECT name for a squirrel!

You were missed and welcome back!! It's been a crazy day around here as well. We'll give you a few mins to catch up ;-P

On the bright side, she has a new, stuffed squirrel, that I have convinced her to name "Dave."
-----------
Just don't let her take it to Sudan, hammie. They worship Dave there.

Hammie....good to see ya....best wishes and prayers to Little Ham...

Dam, Ham!

Kick back while I grab you a cold one from the BlogBar Beer Fridge.

Oh, Hammie, that's awful. Hug her for us and tell her that we wish her a SPEEEEEEEEEDY recovery!! And don't let her read any squirrel threads.

And (((((((Hammie)))))))

It's almost harder on your heart than on her body.

I thought we were doing an environmental duty by keeping those old fridges out of the landfills and not releasing the Freon. My farmer cousin has a 60 year old fridge running in his "office".

Thanks, everyone. She's on a long-term mending path, but she'll be OK.

Gee Desk, didn't Siouxie just say that?

But I'll add my wishes for her speedy recovery too. :)

Poutine = French fries with cheese curds and gravy.

It's not as bad as it sounds.

*WAVES @ Hammie!*

LTTG, but I'm so sorry about the girl sammich's accident. Hope she feels better soon.

Also, keep an eye on that squirrel.

Wow Hammie! That's awful. Sending good vibes your way for her SPEEEEEEEEEEDY recovery.

Mine's more sincererer because I threw in another 'E'. ;p

Is there an echo in here???

Hello....llllo....llo...oooooo

Do I hear an echoo-ooo-ooo-ooo?
In here-ere-ear-ere-ear?

btw, Hammie, I'd give you a big fat hug too, but I might crush you. So I'll just wave. *waves*
I'm guessing a squirrel was somehow blamed involved in her accident?

Hammie, that's a bad one. Tell your girl I add "come on, COWGIRL UP!"
Don't matter is she's a cowgirl or not...it's an attitude.

Beer fridges are like college diplomas. You earn them when your kids are through with the dorm experience. They also HELP the environment! This way we aren't opening the big fridge everytime we need a beer, which is often. Can't wait till my kids graduate and we upgrade.
