My Life as a Ticker in 2009
The third in this year’s series tracking my drinking numbers, I find it interesting that a couple of beer trips made a big kaboom in my numbers, locking the third quarter in as the most beers logged so far this year. In fact, in the months of July through September, I see that I’ve tried more different beers than I did in the first two quarters combined.
Total to date: 463
Yikes! It’s sure to dip from here. No festivals planned. No trips planned. I’ve got homebrew to drink. Which is good, as this is becoming tiresome.
I know I’ve forgotten to log a few, and as I open a previously-tried beer later in the year, I have a hard time remembering if I’ve had it before earlier this year, or simply late last year or some other time in my life altogether. My method is to number and list each beer as I have them. Since this is not alphabetical, I find myself struggling through my log to ensure that I don’t re-record something. Someone more organized and computery might throw together a spreadsheet.
At this point, I’m just trying to get through this year and this ridiculous project. I am not a ticker, and that life will cease on New Year’s Day with a good beer and a serious kedge.
