Hot Fuzz and Hops

Last night while the rest of the world watched the Oscars, Husband and I watched this.


Our evening started something like this:

me:  I am getting a beer.  Do you want one?  Of course you want one, what kind to you want?

husband:  (I have no idea what he actually said but I heard him ask for a Red Chair, which is an American Pale Ale.)

me:  Handing Husband a Red Chair – Here you go. 

husband:  Ummm, thanks?

me:  What?  Didn’t you want a Red Chair?

husband:  Well, I actually asked for an IPA but this is fine.  Any of the beer we have would be fine.  Except for the Hefeweizen.  (We bought some Hefe last summer for a BBQ and no one drank it.)

me:  Why don’t any of our friends drink that crap?  We just need to find some friends with poor taste in beer.

husband:  Always the diplomat – Some people actually like Hefeweizen.

me:  No one we invite over drinks it.

husband:  We don’t invite anyone over.

me:  Sigh.  What is wrong with us?

husband:  Perhaps the fact that everyone else in the world is watching the Oscars tonight and we are about to watch a 2007 movie named Hot Fuzz has something to do with it.

So my point is that if you live anywhere near us and like to drink Hefeweizen you are more then welcome to come over for a visit.  We will most likely be watching an episode of Weeds from the third season or an episode from the second season of The Big Bang Theory.  If you plan your visit just right you might come on a night when we get one of our next Netflix movies.  The next three in our queue are Fracture (2007), Ten Canoes (2006), and Black Book (2006).

Oh, and I have to say that while Hot Fuzz lacked the glamor of the Oscars experience, it was well worth the watch.

    A warm albeit roundabout way of inviting complete strangers to your home. I accept, and I will drink your beer. Next post should be your address.

      I would love to have a group of my blogging friends over to my house even if they are complete strangers (and especially if they will drink the Hefe) but alas if I post my address the folks who search elephantiasis porn and end up on my site may also decide to come over. While I am sure they are good people in their own way, even if they promised to drink my nasty Hefeweizen, I have to draw the line somewhere. I hope you understand. 🙂
      I have added the link to the post causing my apprehension – it does talk about elephantiasis but is notably lacking in porn. Well, I tried to add the link but it does not seem to be showing up. If you must see it search my site for elephantiasis…

    I have to say that I never watch any of the films I want to see when they first come out. I always end up watching them a few years later. 😀 But I quite like it like that in a way.

    While I watched a very short amount of the Oscars (I always manage to see the best supporting actress and then I get quickly bored with it all), I didn’t find out until late yesterday who actually won anything else. I’m glad I didn’t stay up late for it as I had not seen any of those movies. Like you, I tend to see movies years after they come out. And certainly not with a Hefeweizen.

    • shoes says:

      Certainly not with a Hefeweizen! 🙂 Hehehe, you make me laugh, I can hear the disgust in your voice as you say that. While I would love to have you over to watch a movie from 2006 or 2007 you are not helping me with my problem of excess Hefeweizen.

  4. Such is the life of parents! 🙂 No night life but the television! We always meant to watch Hot Fuzz . . . it looks funny. We’ll have to try it!

    I’m gluten free so I will pass on the beer, besides I don’t like the taste anyway. At least you had some good quality time with your husband, that is what matters.

  6. mommysaidaswearword says:

    Part of my job responsibilities include hosting wine and beer pairing dinners for clients. The last beer tasting left us with a cooler full of Hefeweizen, and for some reason, no one will finish it off. Lol.

    • shoes says:

      Well I most certainly don’t want you coming over and bringing your cooler full of Hefeweizen! It is a perplexing problem to have. I don’t want to drink it but it seems so wrong to throw it away. It will continue to sit in our beer fridge (yes we have a beer fridge out in our garage) until some poor soul comes over who will drink it.

    I giggled my way through this conversation…

  8. You had me at free beer and Big Bang Theory…I’m a cheap date.

  9. illusionofsanity says:

    Ooh, you and your husband are our new best friends! Hubs LOVES good beer, and LOVES to try new ones. And Hot Fuzz on top of all that? Oh yeah, we are so in. 🙂

    • shoes says:

      Awesome, come on over! We could even subject your husband to my husband’s slightly skunky one of a kind home brew that I think was suppose to be a porter but didn’t quite make it. Although to you I would offer your choice of IPA, APA, or (gasp!) a red wine because we are not total barbaric beer drinkers around here. 🙂

      • illusionofsanity says:

        Sweeeet…home brews are the best- you never know how it’s going to turn out! 🙂 I’ll take some wine, though!

    I didn’t even know the Oscars were on! 😛 I stopped watching this season of Weeds, it just got me so far annoyed at it, but I love the Big Bang Theory. Now I just wish I liked Hefeweizen.

    • shoes says:

      Yeah, Weeds is starting to lose its appeal but I am madly addicted to the “Little Boxes” song they play at the start of each episode. It is a bummer you don’t like Hefeweizen or I would totally have you over to watch some Big Bang.

    I have no experience with Hefeweizen, so no help there, but I do love Hot Fuzz and would choose it over the Oscars anytime. That part where Simon Pegg jumps the fences gets me laughing every time.
