Can’t Sleep So I’m Writing This Post

Hey! What’s up? I can’t sleep.

It’s Friday night. I’ve had a good day including all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ and a trip to Lost Rhino. No complaints here. Still can’t sleep though. So I decided to fire up the MacBook Pro, grab a beer, turn on MLB Network and write a few words.

Moments ago Brian McCann hit a walk-off homerun for the Yankees. I’m not a Yankees fan but funny story. Last year when I was at a Yankees game sitting ridiculously close, I turned to my friend when McCann got up to bat and said, “How is this guy a professional athlete?” McCann promptly hits a homerun that at bat. Fast forward to this year. I’ve been fortunate enough to go to two more Yankees game and McCann homered in both of them. And tonight as soon as I turn on the TV McCann walks off Tampa Bay. Mr. McCann – if you want to keep hitting homeruns I might need to get a cut of your $17,000,000 contract for this season. And I’m sorry for questioning your athletic abilities.

What else is new? Hmm. I paid off my car! My 2010 Toyota Corolla is officially mine. Now about those 120,000+ miles I’ve put on it over the past five and a half years…

Tomorrow I’m headed over to my cousin-in-law’s for 4th of July festivities. I’m bringing a growler of Lost Rhino’s Native Son. It’s my favorite Lost Rhino beer, even beating out the great Ice Breaker. It is made with 100% local ingredients. Kinda sounds like a project my buddy is working on… Speaking of Lost Rhino, has anyone been to the new Lost Rhino Retreat yet? Maybe I should do a quick visit and write-up…

I’ve had a couple ideas floating around in my head in regards to Short On Beer. I really want to get this whole email list/email marketing thing set up on my other site. But I pretty much never do anything over there unless I test it out over here first. Sorry, not sorry. You’re my guinea pig. First, I don’t even know if I can do MailChimp or another email marketing service for a .wordpress.com website. But if I can, I’m fairly certain I’m going to test it out over here. I guess that means I should probably write more… Hmm…

Another idea is to start a new YouTube show. I’m thinking it’d be called “An American Guy Drinking Beer and Learning Japanese.” And it’s pretty much about that. I’m headed back to Japan (!!!!!!!!!!) in a few months and want to speak enough Japanese to get around much better than the last time I went. And I figure the easiest way would be to have fun with it and learn Japanese words around things I like – beer being one of those topics. I’m thinking like a 3-5 minute show, drinking a beer, and talking about a couple Japanese words or phrases that I learned that week. IDK. What do you think?? Crazy? Dumb? Brilliant? I have no idea.

Alright. That’s about all the words I got left in me tonight. Time to finish this beer and force myself to hit the sac.

Leave me some comments!!

    • So I know what all of the Hiragana characters are and how to say them but I have no idea what you wrote or what it means!

      I went to Tokyo (and some of the smaller cities near Tokyo) and Kyoto. I had a BLAST. Easily the greatest trip of my life. My wife and I just booked our flights for another trip this winter! Still trying to figure out our itinerary for the next trip. I’m actually taking my Japanese a lot more serious than before and JUST restarted training the other day.
