Depressing

Ugh, we have a pond behind our house. It is covered with ice... again.

Will this winter never end?

Today, in an attempt to appease the gods of winter (who are all bastards, by the way) I shall sacrifice some grains to them by allowing some chosen yeast to eat their innards.

Behold, the Chosen Ones (by, 'Ones' I mean 'Billions'):
The gods better be pleased.


UPDATE: I just realize the picture I posted is essentially a yeast orgy as they reproduce by budding. I'm sorry if I offended anyone's delicate sensibilities with my pornographic picture.

Haha, my first thought when seeing the picture was a middle-school-esque: "heh, they're doing it."

My backyard, the "lake" as I like to call it, has frozen over again but with all this new snow I'm sure it will be all lakey again in no time.

Maybe the snow is the weather gods' way of saying "you need to stay inside and brew more"? That is one way of finding the positive...
Then again, staying inside, brewing gallons of beer, drinking gallons of beer, getting piss drunk, then having to be rushed to the ER because of an unsuccessful attempt at standing on the roof of your house while peeing and yelling curses at the weather gods could be another option...

Stay warm :-)

I'll bet the most common thing going on in that pile of Saccharomyces cerevisiae is "Quo signo nata es?"
