Good Books

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today's contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha

Subject: Bookworms

Sara's sitting on the couch reading, and Ann and Tabitha are doing the crossword puzzle together in the kitchen.

I think we're stuck.”

Me too. But this is pretty good for a Thursday.”

We did get like three quarters of it. Maybe Sara can help.”

No thanks. I'm really into my book.”

You're just staring into space.”

I'm absorbing.”


Yeah. You know how a good book makes you sit back, and just take it all in? How you need a moment to catch up to all the good stuff you just read?”

Aren't you reading a book about beer? What can be so complex about that?”

It's not just a beer book. It's the Brewmaster's Table. Garrett Oliver is my new hero.”


Head brewer of Brooklyn Brewery.”

Oh, nice. It's a good book then? I'm always interested in different types of books.”

Yeah, you might enjoy this. It's focused around beer pairing with food, but he intersperses a lot of what makes the beers different, some history, who makes them..”

I'll read it then when you're done. I think Frank was talking about going on a Brooklyn Brewery tour.”

Yeah, that sounds fun. Especially after reading this. The downside is I've wanted a beer virtually constantly while reading it. 7 am commute to work? Doesn't matter, I want a beer.”

Beer for breakfast is one of the signs of alcoholism.”

Nah, that's just Americans and Puritan heritage. Beer was always a regular beverage, it was cleaner than water. Even now, wheat beers are common with breakfast sausages in Germany.”

So we'll make a plan to go to the Brewery then. You can wow us with all your information from the book, be our special tour guide.”

I guess I could. At this rate, it won't be long before I'm a beer snob.”

Getting there! At least it's less pretentious than wine snobs.”

6th Floor Blog Rocks!

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today's contributors are: Ann, Sara, Frank

Subject: Opening Night at the Rock

It's Friday night and Sara Is sitting at the table with a beer and a book of second degree black belt level Sodoku when Ann and Frank come home.

Hey guys, where were you tonight?”

We went to the Rock.”

The Rock?”

Yup. You know, the Prudential Center.”

You went to Newark? Eww..”

Devils opening night! Hockey Hockey Hockey!”

Ahh..I almost turned the Rays/Sox game on, but then I didn't.”

Islanders put on a poor show sadly. They really could use a shooter.”

Devils Win! They even looked a little rusty too. The whole game was a little bit sloppy.”

I don't know why DiPietro didn't start.”

Me neither. That arena is very nice though.”

Oh yeah? I'd heard it was a nice place. Better than the Garden?”

Hell yeah..The Garden's not exactly top of the line you know.”

And neither are the Rangers!”

Hey now!”

And neither are the Knicks!”

Better. Did you know the Knicks are actually named for beer?”

Really? I might have to like them a little more now.”

Yeah, the Rock was great. It was wide open and pretty spacious. Had some decent food. The only drawback is it's Newark. And the Devils.”

Beer selections not bad, though they might play off the building being called “The Rock” a bit too much. There was a beer stand that sold only Rolling Rock, and Michelob Amber Bock, and said 'Rock the Bock'.”

Glad you guys had fun. Maybe I'll come with you if you go again. I haven't been to a hockey game in a while.”

Sure, we were thinking about going the next time the Islanders go there.”

And hopefully the Islanders win that time...” Ann mutters.

Pasta Fight!

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today's contributors are: Ann and Scott.

Subject: Noodles Noodles Everywhere

Ann is washing dishes when the timer goes off.

Beep beep. Beep beep. ...

Scott!” Ann shouts, as Scott looks up from the television, “Check the pasta for me!”

Scott looks at Ann elbow deep in soap suds and complies. He takes the wooden spoon and scoops out two strands of spaghetti and flings them at the ceiling, where they stick.

What'd you do that for?!”

Pasta's done.” Scott says, pulling the inside part of the pasta pot out, and turning off the stove.

Did you have to throw it against the ceiling? Couldn't you have just tasted it?” Ann asked, drying her hands.

Tasting it. Now that would've been better. No big deal, I'll just reach up and ..woah, the ceiling's kinda high.”

Get the stool.”

Err...well uh...I kinda broke the stool last week.”

What'd you do now Scott?”

Billy had my I tackled him. He was sitting on the stool, and we kind of crushed it and bent the legs.”

Can you fix it? Where is it?”

No, we threw it out. It was beyond repair.”

Well then, no dinner until you get those noodles down.”

Are You Going To Watch That?

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today's contributors are: Ann, Sara, Tabitha

Subject: Tivo Logjam

Damn girls! This TIVO is jam packed! We need to watch some of this.”

I thought I'd been keeping up with it.”

I know I haven't. I actually forgot most shows had even started.”

They had to have just started. I know It's only been on episode of Grey's Anatomy. We can't be that far behind.”

We still have four episodes of Smallville from last season on here.”

Oh, I'm not going to watch those.”

I'm deleting them.”

I don't think I finished watching Desperate Housewives last season did I?”

There are seven episodes on here.”

Wow, that's pretty bad.”

What's worse, is we still have the finale to Will and Grace on here. Can I delete that?”

No no! I want to watch that.”

It's been years.”

I've been busy.”

New Private Practice tonight right?”

I don't think you should be able to watch new episodes until you get rid of old ones.”

That's what you said about Fringe.”

And Project: Runway.”

We have to overrule her on that...Once too much time passes Project: Runway isn't quite the same. It's really more of a current show.”

Do you know what time it's actually on without consulting TIVO?”

It's on tomorrow right? Or is it tonight?”

I know it's on at eight.”

I'm deleting these last couple of episodes of the O.C. The last season sucked anyway.”

I feel like I started it, I should finish it though.”

Tell you what, I'll download them for you. Or buy the DVD.”
