Beer & Snack Day at Work

weather: mainly clear
outside: 17°C
mood: okay
music: Ben Heppner - Celeste Aida (Verdi)
Work is having a Beer & Snack Day some time soon. Everyone is supposed to bring a 6-pack of their favorite beer/cider/cooler to share and some beer snacks. Isn't Work great? I love Work. Thank you, Work =)

Let's poll up the LJ-landers and see what kinds of interesting things we come up =)

Poll #173067 Beer & Snack Day

What beers do you recommend?

What snacks do you recommend?

Did you know you can change your answers to polls by following the "Poll #xxxxx:" link?

Yes
12(75.0%)
No
4(25.0%)

Self: find out what "Midori" is. Ah, I see...

I don't think I have to worry about Guinness. It's no big loss, even if no one brings it because who would really want Guinness in a can? Useless Fact: you can live on nothing but Guinness and Navel oranges for about 3 months before you need to be hauled off to the hospital for malnutrition. I learned that from a social worker friend from London.

I haven't had Shaftebury Honey Pale Ale or Cream Ale in a long time.

I also thought about getting Smirnoff Ice, but... well, it's a really funny thing. I only seem to crave it when I'm not having it. When I actually have one in my hand, it tastes like ... a waste of vodka. =P Maybe I just want a glass of lemonade and a glass of Moonshine/Samogon, separately =}

I SO want to bring edamame for my snack. I might be able to borrow my parents' hot pot thingie and plug it in in the kitchen. I bring a pot and a strainer. It just sounds like more effort than necessary.

[Update]

Thanks for all the suggestions! Keep'em coming. I may end up having my own personal Beer&Snack Day... Week... Month...

WASABI PEAS! Brilliant! Thanks, Clint =D

TimTams: I've heard all about those. My teeth are singing just thinking about them. I think there's a place that sells them here too =D Thanks, ingole =)

Midori = bright green, melon liqueur. Mmm... easiest description, imagine a watermelon Jolly Rancher flavored liqueur, and about the same color, really. Commonly used in various colorful, fruity, sweet drinks.

Midori's a melon-flavored liquer.

My work has a 'social hour' every Friday with all sorts of beer and pop, entirely free. Complete coolness.

Oh, and the Skyy things I mentioned are much better (I think) than the Smirnoff Ice's. Bacardi O3's are good too, if you like orange-y type things.

Yeah...I didn't just turn 21...nooo, not me...

The others have explained what Midori is, so I shall settle for saying that Midori is beautiful stuff.

Did you know that you can view the answers to a poll without filling it out at all, simply by clicking the "Submit Poll" button? ;)

(I don't remember where I heard this from; it might even have been you. I'm posting this on the off-chance that it wasn't.)

I don't remember talking about that anywhere else, but I did know that hitting the Submit button will switch it from question view to answer view. I did it once by accident. =)

I bet you could cook the edamame in the microwave, which might be a lot easier and less messy than having to bring in a hot pot (assuming your work has a microwave).

You must work at a very cool place.

I wish I could recommend some beers but I don't drink.

Have a great time.
