The one across the street from the Target, etc? There's also Carbonic Services, which is where I get my CO2 tank refilled - if you ever need gas again :D They're not much farther away.

Like everyone else said, you didn't really screw up. Worst that's going to happen is that you don't get a compete fermentation, and some people *like* that. My husband and I prefer a maltier beer over a hoppy one, and I pretty much only check my SGs at pitch and when I'm about to keg/bottle. Maybe your beer is a little sweeter. If that works for you, then hey, it wasn't a screwup! When my husband and I got married, I made beer and he made custom labels. On the day of the wedding, we took our... 99 bottles of beer! =) The guests loved it.

Regarding the celiac tests - one of my very best friends is celiac, though her tests also come back negative. The tests are good (or at least better than they used to be), but they're not perfect. So don't be surprised that they don't work, and don't let people tell you you're full of it just because the formal tests didn't show anything. All of our friends know that if Ang eats wheat, she gets horribly, miserably, utterly sick. Period. You're not alone.

I can haz vote! I voted a couple of hours ago now, and I'm just crossing my fingers that the presidential polls are right, and that 8 and 4 go down in the FLAMES they should.

I'm not actually sure what's worse - that picture, or my hesitation to click the link because my first thought was 'OMG, it's going to be a rickroll OR he's dressing as Rick Astley for Halloween'.

Thanks for the link! I'm looking forward to teaching my daughter (currently 17 months) about games and gaming and all that. So far, she only really knows that you're supposed to blow on dice before you roll them :)

I feel your pain. I have TMJ, and it is flat out shocking just how much pain can be caused by your jaw being even a little out of place. I wore a splint for months (I still wear it sometimes) to get my jaw back to where it's supposed to be. It was incredible how the temple headaches went away after a couple of weeks - just because my jaw was being used correctly. Hope yours goes quicker:)

I used to work an inventory job - one morning we were doing it at a food co-op in Sacramento while the employees were stocking the store for the day. I can't remember what song came on over the radio they had blaring in the store, but by the end of the first verse, the entire crew was singing and dancing along with it. It was really cool to hear the song spread across the aisles of the store. :) One of the oddest and yet most fun experiences I've ever had.

I had a brain cramp reading that because a friend of mine recently wrote a book called _House of Cards_ and she's occasionally done similar posts about how she keeps focused and the things she catches herself doing when she's having motivational problems. I started to think "er.. did he ask her to write this?" and well. Small world. :)

A freakin men. I admit, my husband is kinda sad. We have a kid about to have her first birthday and he really doesn't feel comfortable playing a game like GTA IV in front of her. He loves the series, but being a good parent? Yeah, it means more than just changing diapers. So we may, or we may not get GTA IV soon. And he'll take a lot longer to play it because hey, she's too little to be exposed to that kind of thing. We don't need any morality police to tell us that.

Holy crap, I'm not sure what's more disturbing - that you found that, that I remember the words, or that my 11 month old started dancing to it!
