People don't really bbq eggplant, except in french magazines. And even there, Real Men bbq only slabs of meat. But Joe has brought not just an eggplant, but TWO of 'em to a bbq. Can anyone say 'eggplant issues'??? :p:D:p

On the issue of beer in the shower... I've done it many times myself, for just the same reason. Now... it's true that one could find far better tasty and refreshing beers to swig than that donkey dribble he's drinking. A nice hefeweizen, perhaps? How about an icy light lager, like a Full Sail 'Session'? Oh... and I don't have any alcohol issues - addressed or unaddressed... just a healthy appreciation of the brewer's art.

Your on just no drinking in the shower ;)

I have to laugh though I have about 10% body fat, I work out daily, I eat very healthy, I don't smoke. Yet one photo of a Carona in the shower makes me an alcoholic :rolleyes: Kinda hard to keep my active HEALTH conscience lifestyle and be a drunk, but whateeeevers:p.

The problem that constantly comes up is THOSE who have had drinking problems see any and ALL alcohol as a problem........ well because for THEM it is a problem. They cant discern between a casual beer and a serious drinking problem its ALL warning signs. For me I enjoy an occasional beer every know and then I prefer it to soda or other beverages when I'm eating. I Rarely if ever consume soda ever, I think chemically its far worse for you than a cool refreshing beer. So I wonder if I had an ice cold glass of caramel colored sugar water with high fructose corn syrup and tons of sugar and caffeine and all sorts of artificial coloring and flavor would any of you say I have a problem ? Or just laugh at having a soda in the shower.

You yanks have gotta learn when the Michael is being extracted (or as we Orstraaalians say, the piss is is being is being taken).

Doncha know anyfink Brad? One beer is okay (even if is a drossy one)! But when he has two or three different drossy beers in the soap tray - like if he's trying to be all Orstraaalian and has a Fosters (YUK!) next to the Corona, THEN, and only then do we send in the SWAT team and deal with this mess!

Your
The problem that constantly comes up is THOSE who have had drinking problems see any and ALL alcohol as a problem........

I would be an exception to that rule but I can tell you that when I got to the point where I knew quitting all together was the only angle I had left, one of the crazy considerations was that I wouldn't be drinking when I was using the bathroom for any function, which indicated to me that there were very few activities that did not include drinking alcohol.
When I saw the image I chuckled and had no judgement, except a reminder of my old days.

This is one illness/problem that is to be self-diagnosed. Problem for many problem drinkers is that the chemical tells us we don't have a problem. As in my case, a person has to step away from the chemical for a bit and take a critical inventory. Like, can I see my life without showering without beer? Crazy, but effective.

Geez, the man's having a beer. I just don't get this beer snobbery. :rolleyes:

Fred,

You're right on the count. No beer snobbery... just beer taste ;) Plus giving Joe a bit of a ribbing, both on the veggies and the beer. I guess I should have included a reference to his 'alcohol problem' for the trifecta :p:rolleyes::p

Having a beer in the shower is a great idea, After all one just rents beer and when its time to give it back one can just let go and not worry about ones aim.

Some Philosophers have stated this is one of the only times a man is truly free..

I for one yam not surprised Joe knows about this.

PSA time, GLASS bottles in the shower can be a bad idea. When drinking beer in the shower I drink out of cans or plastic cups. When drinking wine, I have plastic wine glasses.

Just saying, you don't want to learn the hardway.

Reminds me of my favorite Kristofferson song:

Well I woke up Sunday morning,
With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt.
And the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad,
So I had one more for dessert.
Then I fumbled through my closet for my clothes,
And found my cleanest dirty shirt.
An' I shaved my face and combed my hair,
An' stumbled down the stairs to meet the day.

The version I know, is from Johnny Cash...

Well, I woke up Sunday morning
With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt.
And the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad,
So I had one more for dessert.
Then I fumbled in my closet through my clothes
And found my cleanest dirty shirt.
Then I washed my face and combed my hair
And stumbled down the stairs to meet the day.

I'd smoked my mind the night before
With cigarettes and songs I'd been picking.
But I lit my first and watched a small kid
Playing with a can that he was kicking.
Then I walked across the street
And caught the Sunday smell of someone frying chicken.
And Lord, it took me back to something that I'd lost
Somewhere, somehow along the way.

On a Sunday morning sidewalk,
I'm wishing, Lord, that I was stoned.
'Cause there's something in a Sunday
That makes a body feel alone.
And there's nothing short a' dying
That's half as lonesome as the sound
Of the sleeping city sidewalk
And Sunday morning coming down.

In the park I saw a daddy
With a laughing little girl that he was swinging.
And I stopped beside a Sunday school
And listened to the songs they were singing.
Then I headed down the street,
And somewhere far away a lonely bell was ringing,
And it echoed through the canyon
Like the disappearing dreams of yesterday.

On a Sunday morning sidewalk,
I'm wishing, Lord, that I was stoned.
'Cause there's something in a Sunday
That makes a body feel alone.
And there's nothing short a' dying
That's half as lonesome as the sound
Of the sleeping city sidewalk
And Sunday morning coming down.

But I don't know who was first.

In any case, if you're ever feeling too good one day, just listen to that song. ;)

BrianW
05-03-2010, 07:44 PM
Well, Googles your friend, and Fred Z had it right...


Kris Kristofferson wrote this while living in a run-down tenement in Nashville when he was working as a janitor for Columbia Records. He was told if he was caught pitching songs to any artists he would be fired. He delivered this song personally to Johnny Cash after landing his National Guard helicopter in Cash's front yard - the best way he could think of to get Cash's attention. This song was #1 on the Country charts for 2 weeks in September 1970. (thanks, Chris - Bristolville, OH)

In a 2009 Rolling Stone article about Kris Kristofferson that was written by Ethan Hawke, it explains that Kris made Johnny Cash listen to the song before removing the helicopter. After hearing it Cash said he "liked his songs so much that I would take them off and not let anybody else hear them."
Cash recorded the song live on The Johnny Cash Show, and before the show, ABC censors asked him to change the lyrics, "Wishing, Lord, that I was stoned" to "Wishing, Lord, that I was home." Cash sang it the way Kristofferson wrote it, and even stressed the word "stoned."

I'm a little late to the party but this has been bothering me since the accusation was first made.
I know guys that have a beer in the shower, guys that have a drink when they fish, guys that have a beer when they mow their lawn, etc. There is not a problem because one of these situations is true on occassion. The problem is when many of these situations are true of the same person all the time and they are helpless to stop it. Calling a guy a problem drinker because he enjoys having a beer in the shower on a hot day is not only stupid and childish, it's absolutely ridiculous. Some people make themselves feel superior by pointing fingers. Grow up.

joe, it goes without saying you should have a beer/drink wherever and whenever you want too.

on a more important note, whoever put that wood shingle roof on the house did a nice job, especially with that tapered copper valley flashing. tell your friend that if they want that roof to live longer, apply rolled copper over the top of the last course of shingles and cover the upper edge of the copper with the ridge vent system.

about the only good thing acid rain is good for is, it hits that copper at the top of the roof and that prevents moss or lichen or anything else getting a foothold up there, anywhere on the roof.

the only other advice i can offer is never pass up the exit to the new hampshire liquor store when you visit maine. it's about half price of what i pay in alabama.

My advice in this instance, my brother, is always work left to right.


I do think you have a drinking problem, what with the beer in the shower, though. I learned in college, after a hard soccer game, that the minimal number of beers required in a shower is two. I will state that taking a cooler in there, with more than a six pack, is probably overkill. However, this is variable, depending on the number and appearance of those you have chosen to shower with.
Who am I to judge? :)
