I do not approve

We went to RFD recently to meet up with some people who my darling fiancée went to high school with, and when I was finished renting my beer I was horrified to discover that they’d repainted the bathrooms. Where there’d once been walls covered with amusing beer quotes there was now just a blah flat brown. The tin beer signs over the urinals were an improvement over obnoxious ads, but only barely.

I’m disappointed, RFD. Your old decor reflected your enthusiasm for beer. There’s nothing wrong with it as it is now, but those quotes were part of your character.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
