Feels kind of poetic that I left my old home of Illinois on Election Day and on the day I arrive at my new home in Seattle we officially have a new president-elect to rid the country of the idiocracy of the last four years.

The sun does seem to be shining just a bit brighter today.

I’m so weak. I can’t help but stare at the percentage points swing tonight. I wish I were stronger.

Leg 1 of the road trip to Seattle has been completed. Was originally planning on staying in Minneapolis, but given the election and not wanting to be in the middle of any city tonight, we loaded up on Modist, BlackStack, and Fair State beer and have hunkered down 30min out.

Whelp, the condo has been completely emptied with closing scheduled for tomorrow afternoon. Buyer isn’t technically cleared to close” yet, which makes me super nervous, but my lawyer seems to believe there’s nothing to worry about.

Still no chance of making the playoffs, even in the East, but maybe a year away from being a year away from the playoffs…

Selling myself on the draft this year for the Bulls… Could draft Killian Hayes or LaMelo Ball to play alongside Coby in the backcourt with Lauri and Carter Jr. up front. My hope would be to move LaVine, but if not, Billy has shown he can get a lot out of three guard lineups.

I don’t watch a lot of baseball, but I’m so glad I watched the last four innings tonight. What a crazy ending. Go Rays! (Have always been very anti-Dodgers, sorry LA)

Just four days before we hit the road for Seattle, I’ll be able to try my 100th unique Hop Butcher beer. In a surprising twist it’s a red IPA @ 6.66% AbV called Satan’s Mile. Feels like a bad omen…

Did a blind taste test of three different unflavored 1L glass bottles of sparkling water. San Pellegrino vs. Topo Chico vs. Mountain Valley. Topo Chico was by far and away my favorite and San Pellegrino was surprisingly my least favorite.

I kind of actually like Medium’s new logo symbol thing…

Well I think I’ve come up with the perfect first beer to brew once I’m in Seattle. Blending Omega’s Pseudo-Lager recipe and their Lutra Kveik yeast with a Nano NEIPA, then adding some lemon and lime zest in boil, Pseudo SuperSonic is born.

Scrolling through A Day in the Life photos on is a joy. The cities, mountains, water, landscapes, and desks are all wonderful.

The lagers in Seattle are so much better than Chicago though. Dovetail is the only thing on par with what I’ve had in Seattle so far.

I haven’t had everything, but my current opinion is Chicago does the NE/Hazy IPA soooooooooo much better than Seattle. Wet hop season is nice though.
