Things that make me happy: this denim shirt and anatomically incorrect embroidered bird

I found this crazy awesome snapfront denim shirt at the Goodwill in Harrisonburg.  Somehow I didn't notice the ridiculous bird on the back.  I would have gotten it even had I known it was there... because it's AWESOME.

Things that make me happy: this voodoo doll

My friend Rachelle brought this awesome voodoo doll back from Louisiana!

Things that make me happy: This Chair

This chair makes me happy!  Actually, I have two of them, so I'm super happy!  I found them on craigslist for $40/pair.  Somebody told me the name of the maker, but I can't remember, nor do I really care.  I don't sit in them.  I just stand and look at them.

Pikolino boots for a song!

I bought these little gems at the thrift store a while ago. Look like they'd never been worn. This is what I found when I searched for them online.

I paid $4.  Boom.

I like beer

In case you don't get the Tom T. Hall reference, listen up.

I like beer.  I also like wine, vodka and tequila, but since Microfestivus is coming up in August, I'll talk about drinking beer and festivals.
Microfestivus is that magical sweaty time in the hottest part of summer... a place relationships begin and end (OK maybe I'm the only person who has ever been dumped after an adult beverage festival), friendships are made in line for the porta-john and old acquaintances are avoided.  Beers are tested and loved or rejected.  People are friendly to strangers as they wait in line patiently for a 4 ounce taste of a yummy new beer.  Happy times.

This pic is from Big Lick Brewtopia 2011, in Salem VA.

This year is the 14th Microfestivus run by the Square Society in Roanoke VA.  It promises to be a freakin' good time.  I'm volunteering to pour beer for a couple of hours.  Hopefully it will be with Ommegang Brewery.  Come see me if you're there!  They make yummy Belgian style beer.  Good stuff.  If you want more info, you can check out Microfestivus here here and Ommegang here.

This one is from the first annual Rocktown Beer and Music Festival 2011, in Harrisonburg VA.
What is it with me and the giant sunglasses?  I just don't know.

What kind of beer do you drink?  What should I try this year?
