When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading.  
Recently, I posted about my misadventures in acquiring a kegerator so that I could always have ice-cold Shiner Bock on tap.

A few weeks ago my plans were thwarted at the last minute. It was devastating.

In response to my story, photogoot had the following to offer: Before today you just "wanted" a kegerator... Now I suspect, due to the nature of all human males, you now "need" a kegerator. and if necessity truly is the mother of all invention I look forward to how you satisfy this now burning need.

Well he was absolutely correct.

Over the course of the past 2 weeks I began assembling the requisite parts to build my own. I did plenty of research, found local vendors to keep me stocked in CO2, found the best keg prices in town and, finally, put it all together.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, the drax0rator:

I fully expect a personal invite to test out said device! I love draft beer!

I supped from his nipple of happiness last night. IT WAS WONDERFUL!

Consider this your personal invite to come suckle from the beer teat on Saturday night.

I lost my breath for a second when I first saw the images. Very well executed! I hope to partake of your ale before the summers over.

But it's Rebel ale!!!

Rebels are excellent in the ways of sin. ;-)

I certainly hope that happens.

I can't believe there was no such mention of the wonderful wife you must have to have made this possible.

I am still waiting for the garage to be cleaned out.

I find that I must ask why there seems to be so many women in Texas in need of their garages cleaned out.... It's just that I am noticing a trend, maybe its nothing.
Complete and Utter Nonsensejesskd26 on June 26th, 2008 07:53 pm (UTC)
That is totally a euphanism for something else, right? Right? If not, it should be.
Me: $hitty Day In Paradisephotogoot on June 27th, 2008 03:06 am (UTC)
Yes it totally could be; However in this case I ask the question literally. I spoke to lady "L" on the phone a few days ago and she said during the phone call to me that she needed somebody to "clean her garage". I am quite certain she was not propositioning me.

I can't speak for Lady L but my husband is a lazy, lazy man and I had to agree to let him have a kegarator in order for the garage to get cleaned. Looks like the joke is on me though because he hasn't even started on it but he HAS broken in the keg.

texas_tangent: Why are you reading thistexas_tangent on June 26th, 2008 12:40 pm (UTC)
Yea. We assumed you knew that you were wonderful so that is the reason why we did not mention your wonderfulness. We will not make the same mistake in the future. We think you are the reason why some peoples heart's sing. LOL

Yea. SO .. UM I have a mouse in my pocket..

Complete and Utter Nonsensejesskd26 on June 26th, 2008 07:54 pm (UTC)
Just because someone knows they are wonderful doesn't mean we don't like a little praise sometimes. Not many wives would let their husband have a keg full of beer in the house for personal use. Let's face it. I rox0r.

Congratulations!!! It looks great.

Drax... that is fantastic.

I never would have thought of such a thing... assuming that kegs were to large or whatever to have a "refrigerator" specifically for the purpose of keeping it chilled down.

I mean walk in frig's sure but... one that a home-owner could have? Dude... it's awesome. :-D
