Things have been dragging lately. Work has been a drag. The weather getting cooler is a drag. School starting again is a drag. Everything has been a drag.
But then something surprisingly nice happened. Stewart's is discontinuing their house beer, Mountain Brew. That's not necessarily nice and if you are one of the people that likes it, this is just another thing falling into the drag category. To pay homage to the beer, the Stewart's Shops twitter account posted a link to memorial post featuring tweets praising the beer, tweets hating on the beer and then a handful of bizarre tweets mentioning the beer. You'll never guess where my tweet is...
Now, I actually remember this exchange. There was a journalist that put up a tweet about one of their first articles from years ago being about a pack of wild dogs in Rensselaer. To that, Rich Azzopardi, replied that he would like to meet their tailor. (Little side note, Rich Azzopardi is pretty high up in the Cuomo administration and for the life of me I cannot figure out why he follows me, and occasionally retweets me.) Anyhow, following Rich's reference to the classic Warren Zevon song Werewolves of London, I wrote a tweet. The original line is, "I saw werewolf drinking a pina colada at Trader Vic's. His hair was perfect." You may or may not remember Tom Cruise acting the lyric out in a great scene in The Color of Money. Oh well, I guess if you have to explain the joke...Rich got it. Whoever is handling the Stewart's social media did not.
Also in the Bizarre Section was this tweet with old twitter/blogging friends Albany Eats and RidiculousFood
A nice surprise in the afternoon.
