4 more beers! 4 more beers!


Everyone chant after me: 4 more beers! 4 more beers! Do this until your vision blurs and you are happy.

My guy lost the election and that's the way it is. Am I sad? Hell yeah Dre I'm pissed off and sad. I think the better guy lost and now we are saddled with the inmates running the asylum. It seemed like the population was ready for a change, but I guess not yet. And now like the myth of Sysyphus we must push the rock back up the hill. I think we should push it up with a smile on our faces like we are giving the finger to the folks that put us there.

There is a new day dawning my brothers and sisters and cousins and half cousins and step fathers and aunts of the revolution. We shall start a revolution and walk all the way to our local pubs chanting 4 more beers!

I would like to leave you with a poem by E.E. Cummings

i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun's birthday;this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings:and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any--lifted from the no
of allnothing--human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)

four beers coupled with four falling tears are not enough to blur the sad, scary truth. weary from a losing fight that must continue, tequila may give the strength to push on, and on and on.... until the madness subsides and the walls of the asylum are blown away with the hope of peace and the light of faith. here's to the future... let us learn something from our past mistakes.

hey steve and fellow us of aers

just wanted to let you know how sorry us aussies feel for you (well, me anyway). i too thought the time for change would arrive, but obviously the 'war on terror' has scared the majority into thinking sticking with what you got is the best policy.

anyway, steve, ill be sure to make my way down to the exeter, order 4 coopers pale ales and drink them on your behalf (not that i really need an excuse to drink them, but hey, its a good one) and make sure everyone in there begins the chant 4 more beers! 4 more beers!

Do we (Steve and I) always look this good after 4 more beers?

I bet that fecker DID move back to Nova Scotia! That would explain the hangup on my voicemail from there last weekend!

Lou good. Camera bad. Photographer wasted?

Lou - Yes.


I wish it was a little clearer so I could see mouths with upturned corners. And guiness 'staches.

What's the cuisine like in Nova Scotia? Would a vegetarian be happy there?
