|Yes, he is this creepy in real life.|
I mentioned briefly in my first post for this blog that this is the first year in several that I'm not teaching any classes come fall. And if you count grad school for the three years prior, this is the first September since 2003 in which I won't be ensconced somewhere within the walls of academia. And that, along with the lovely weather we've enjoyed for much of this month, has me feeling somewhat adrift. Where am I? When is it?
Earlier this week I was thinking of doing a "passing of summer" post centered around the fine soft-serve ice cream at On the Farm (logical, considering how many times I've enjoyed it since moving here). But in many ways it feels more appropriate to mourn summer's passing with a beer review for Long Trail's Double White Imperial Belgian-Style White Ale.
