reminds me of the old Rush Limbaugh joke: What's the diff between Rush and a catfish? One's a bottom-dwelling slime sucker and the other is a fish.

My new brewery job has been awesome and exhausting. I'm home every night popping painkillers and sleeping like a baby by 9pm.

I really need to write a book called "The Brewer's Workout: Save money on gym memberships while drinking all day long for free!" But I'm seriously having a great time and enjoy my new colleagues. Lucked out with some decent, hardworking people. Hope it stays that way!

Oh, and updated my profile. I'm a company man now! ;)
