So I told myself I wasn't really going to participate in a bunch of blog hops/memes. Why, you ask? Well, because some of them got boring really fast. And then yesterday when I went to join in on Semi Wordless Wednesday, there was a big PSA about how participants are basically "required" to visit and comment on three other blogs in the hop. I disagree with this. I don't participate in blog hops/memes to gain a bunch of "followers" who never read or comment on my shit. I participate because they give me something regular to write about (though I prefer the ones that don't fence me in, obviously) and I participate because sometimes another blog name on the list will catch my eye and I'll find a great new person to follow. But I'm not going to just click on "the three blogs directly above mine" or three random blogs on a blog hop/meme list just to not read their entries and leave vapid "I came over here from such-and-such blog hop, visit me at blah blah blah blog hearts hearts hearts!!!" comments.
I don't like when other people do that, and I'm not going to do it. And to be honest, I don't always have the time to do it, because I'm too busy actually cultivating relationships with bloggers I'm truly interested in.
But I do like Thirsty Thursdays, dammit, because I like to drink. So I will now step down off my soapbox and talk to you about a beer that I avoided for a long time but now love, that being
Now, to be fair I'm still not a huge fan of their "Boston Lager". It's okay, but not my first choice. Of beer in general or lager, specifically. That said, recently I have tried so many other kinds of Sam Adams - and liked them all so much - that I think I must officially declare myself a Sam Adams beer fan.
It all started with this six pack of heaven:
And of course if you can't already tell - I highly suggest the Cherry Wheat for any and all wheat beer fans out there. You'll never look at a Blue Moon the same way again ;)
