bread is rising


so after work on Friday we went down to the pub and had a couple of beers... they have a chalkboard sign there where people can buy other locals a beer.. my name had two, then one, then two again over the last week, i mentioned it and sounded like a whiny bitch so i stopped and received my complementary work beers instead. from there we went over to a buddies house and watched him and his girlfriend not really get along cause he was so drunk. made some plans with some of the other people there and headed home.
stopped at another friends house we had never been to and got the tour. i think his wife was a little annoyed that we were there so we didnt stay long.
its been so many daze since then i don't really remember what happened when we got home but i hoped it involved sex. for at least one of us...
Saturday we were supposed to have an open house but our realtor flaked. i don't think he was ever planning to have one that day. we never found any ads in the papers and when we called him, he said he was too busy in an annoyed voice.
so we spent Saturday having an adult day of fun. the weather was fucking beautiful, a little breezy(just enough to keep the bugs down) and plenty warm. buddy showed up with other buddies borrowed motorcycle and i showed cheese how to ride the quad and away we went. after a couple of check up stops (for cheese, just to make sure she was doing well and felt like she was having a good time.) we fired up the road way into someone else's private property..
the view from the top was awesome, on one side of the mountain top you could see into Carmel valley and beyond and on the other you could almost see the entire big sur mountain range... amazing!!! ran out of beer at the top of so we decided to drive back. it was a crazy sixteen mile round trip and cheese looked so hot charging away on the quad.
got back to the house and decided to set up a target for some shooting. painted an old propane tank neon green and set it up at our lower flat. spent a couple hours popping rounds into it with the Winchester 30/30 and my old Iver-Johnson .22 lever action rifle... that one is a fun little target plinker.
at some point the drunk buddy from the night before showed up, (still drunk!) and we decided to blast off on another ride while cheese busted out some dinner.
we drove down to botchers gap trail head and back. once we hit the dirt, "drunk buddy" finally noticed that he'd been riding around on a flat tire all afternoon. and we drove up the hill to get a truck. we made him wait! ahahahahahahaaa... ended up that he got tired of waiting for us and he started driving up the road on his rim... (he was needing another beer bad! so were we!!!)
got home and cheese had busted out these killer spicy enchiladas with rice and beans on the side. the beans she cooked with some canned chiles and some other mexispicies. so fucking good. i doled out a small dollop of "Dave's insanity sauce" and watched buddy burn for a while... drank some tequilla and then kicked the drunks out. and... funny, i don't remember what happened after that, that night either...
woke up Sunday and did all of our fucking chores, then went to town. we just had the big sur international marathon plugging up our highway that morning so traffic and town were crazy. busted out our town run in impressive time and blasted back down the coast. worked out on the mountain until after dark and then came in for dinner.
cheese busted out another bomb ass meal! a water chestnut, mushroom and bokchoy(from our garden) stir fry with an orange juice, soy soaked pork chops dish... so fucking good yo!!!
yeah, this weekend is pretty much at the top of the list for weekend this year... hot chics riding motorized vehicles, shooting of really loud guns(and hitting of the targets at just over a hundred yards! which is damn hard with a bush gun...) good food, riding of my new dirt bike and enjoying it, hanging with friends, pissing off the neighbors(another one of my favorite things to do in life!) and just generally letting go of all the stress of the last few months..... ahhh... life is bread and bread is good....

Yeah, you let go of all the stress! So question: Is Cheese a chef or what? Because her cooking sounds great. Man, I need her to just come cook for me. Cheese, if you are reading this, and I hope you are, You sound like a wonderful chef. Hope you have a good week, Oh and look, I'm first today!!!1

Random Chick said...

So how did you blow out your elbow? Was it the sex? Or the crazy, drunken quad driving? Maybe the enchiladas were so kick ass you fell over? DUDE, I gotta know...okay, I'm bored. Just tell me anyway.

Leah said...

You are one lucky bastard. That sounds like more fun in one weekend than I've had in the last ten years. I mean, you're inspiring. I can't imagine me and Sarge cutting loose like that--I've been racking my brain to even come up with one totally freewheeling thing we could do together--and then I wondered were we ever that way? Maybe years ago. I wanna have a knock-down drag-out good time like you and Cheese!!! You know I think part of it is drinking. I've always been an alcohol teetotaller, and my hub says I've ruined his previously fulfilling drinking life, because no one wants to get happy with a sober person staring at them...right?!?

The one thing I can do is cook. Okay, and I can shoot. I can do both of those...Cheese's meals sound awesome. It's official, I'm an Inner Voices and Cheese Groupie. I am truly going to try to take a page from your book. Teach me, oh wise one, the ways of good times...

Suzanne said...

Okay, you dragged me back, you bastard.

Loved your weekend. Absolutely loved it. Except the shooting. Not a big fan. Do you know how many animals that disturbs in nature? It's just stressful. You relieve stress, but cause others stress. Law of Physics: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction." It's the Butterfly Effect. I'll write about it on my blog. Hate to be a downer, but it's true. Everything else, BRILLIANT!

Cheese, you're pretty amazing. First because you put up with him, second because you put out and third because you can cook! Good Lord woman! No wonder he loves you so much. I love you and I've never met you!!! I wish you lived nearby (not next door because you know who would bug the crap out of me) and prepare every meal ~ vegetarian of course. I think I'd be in Heaven. Well, dear friends are in a beauiful home on the coast of Big Sur and their daughter and her husband are in Carmel Valley. When we make it down again, we'll have to get together. Rob really doesn't drink and I don't drink much, so we could be the DD's. We love food and will take you guys to a wonderful place, just give us the name and the directions. We don't even care if it's a local dive. We just love what locals love because they usually know best.

I'm hungry.

The Carmel Valley? I got landlocked there once due to flash floods.

That is all.

I've been drinking.

Off to Boxer's place now.

BEAST said...

I dropped into beer church the other day and Sally had made a big batch of Corned Beef and Cabbage to share with us, it was good.

To heck with bread, I made a carrot cake this morning.

cecile! cheeses talents go far and beyond the kitchen!!! i assure you! she did read and thanked all for the kudos!

randomer! i still have the pain in my elbow... it feels like a sprain or i pooped it out of socket and something tore... cheese is pretty sure we passed out before sex but isnt sure either... hammering around on various motorized vehicles is also a plausible reason for its pain. i think im just a wuss and need to suck it up!

leah, yer making me/us blush! hah! my life is pretty much always been about having a good time. i live for the right now and right here. its easy to do. we all get stressed out and i need that release every now and then! you can do it! and food is very important to us as well! even making a sandwhich is something i do well! (patting my own back there i was) good food, good beer, good sex, good fun!!!

suz, i feel ya on the every action has a reaction.... but this is life and no matter what it is that we do there are consequences... shoot guns/piss off neighbors and squirrels, ride dirt bikes/tear up road and piss off neighbors, eat meat/animals must die, feed feral cats/breeds more feral cats... everything is cicular, with out us the planet would be a happier place full of chaos and disorder! i'm just trying to help it all along!! oh and i dont really do birthdays... sorry...

mj! yep, back in 98. i saw you there standing on the other side of the bridge wearing your green elf shorts...

beast, i asked cheese if we did and she said "no, well i dont think so... did we?" so i think im off the hook...

bbc...i like myself some carrot cake too!

oakland heidi said...

love it... so what do you think of the "new pub"???

INNER VOICES said...

its still the pub, i do have some free beers coming to me though... so it cant be all that bad... but its still boo behind the bar, shaun in the kitchen and a gravel parkinglot out front. the back room is now mostly storage and its the same people there after dark. (not that i would know, we never go there after dark.)
i hear that the goof troop like the two dollar beer nights and keep it quite lively... that is something i almost miss.... hows things with you...
