Re: ****IT'S A CELEBRATION BITCHES 2012 Life Thread****

alright, suggestions needed:

every day i commute an hour+ each way to work. while i usually spend the time listening to music, which is pretty +happiness, i've been thinking about how i can spend this time on something somewhat productive. right now the best thing i can come up with is learning a foreign language (or attempting, i dunno how effective it could be). any other ideas?

Pretty limited in terms of actual production while driving. I listen to a few podcasts that I enjoy and think I learn from. Not sure how productive I would really consider that though.

I listen to The Brewing Network, Joe Rogan, and A Mediocre Time with Tom and Dan.

Speaking of brewing, the wife and I made a mead today. The plan is to drink a bottle each anniversary as mead ages quite well and the batch should make ~50 bottles. It's a strawberry banana mead and the smell of the fruit/honey after it was all combined was phenomenal. Can't wait to try it out in a yearish.

Hey guys

If anyone might know of someone who is looking for a roommate in the Toronto area this summer, I'd like to get in touch with them. PM me please.

I'm more of a reg in MTTc but figured I'd throw it out here as well. Thanks

Austin - so my friend just got into brewing, and recently made his first beer. Pretty sure he made an IPA to start...I think. It was whatever his kit came with :/

He said it went through quite a transformation as it aged. It started out really hoppy, then tasted almost like a light beer, then got super carbonated like a cider. I think the entire transformation took something like 3ish months.

Is that normal?

Audiobooks are the nuts for driving. You could listen to all those books that you're "supposed to read".

I should do this. I suck absolute balls at speaking though, can't make the tones. I guess if I can understand more or less everything speaking would come easier later on.

So a bit less than 9k overall of the top of my head.
Wow, those are completely different costs than what I have budgeted. Did you go to a special venue for the wedding? My fiancee would like a castle of some sorts, which obviously blows up the price.

God I hope I can convince my fiancee to take a <500 wedding dress but I don't think that will be easy. Dumb ass thing you were once in your life, shouldn't even be 500.

What kind of food did you serve, or is food in general just a ton cheaper in the states? I looked around a bit and even decent buffets start at 40 per person.

my boss is completely tone deaf and can't tell the difference between the tones. but because he can get the words in the right order, it makes sense in the end. chinese is a very contextual language

We got a bit of a discount because we were referred but I think that was only 10% or so. They served some bruchetta as a starter when we were taking pictures and then dinner was a buffet with baked ziti, grilled chicken, roasted potatoes, salad, and rolls.

Our venue was the local zoo which actually turned out pretty cool. The lodge they have there has this deck that extends over a small lake and behind that there are giraffes. That's where the ceremony was and then the reception /party was inside the lodge.

Sounds pretty cool. I think we will want to marry in the late afternoon, have a short period of nothing with some drinks/snacks and then a really nice dinner, no party.

We will have a really small wedding so I hope I can find a castle with spaces suitable for small groups. Problem with castles is that they are big and thus less suitable for small groups .
