GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY THREAD...
Time to Read: 2.5 minutes
From the journal of The Daily Thread
Easter Eggs. We Got 'Em.
Disney Plus could not have picked a better time to launch. Millions of people are now spending oodles of time at home. What are they doing? Streaming.
I'm crushing Pixar movies on Disney Plus. I've always noticed similarities in the Pixar movies. I decided to do some major research. Yeah, I've been watching movies all day.
I started writing this story at 9:30 am yesterday. I took three breaks. Lunch, dinner, and one walk. It's now 3 am. What do we have to show for it?
Just the greatest collection of Pixar hidden easter eggs on the Internet. I'm trying to keep as much of the Journal content in the emails as possible. I hate clicking out of emails to finish stories.
But this is 4,000+ words of nicely formatted lists. So you're gonna have to visit The Journal.
Kickstart your morning (this is NOT an ad)
No. It's not another email about cold showers. This one is about marriage. Specifically, the marriage of two of life's most enjoyable beverages.
That's right. I'm talking about coffee and bourbon. I want to reiterate that this is NOT an ad. I'm just really excited about this new bourbon.
It's Quarantine. Anything Goes.
You need your coffee. How is your boss going to know that it's coffee flavored bourbon in your mug? She's not.
Oak and Eden just released their much anticipated Bourbon & Brew. It starts with 2 years of aging in American Oak barrels. Then it moves to the bottle.
A 5 inch spiral cut of French Oak is dropped into the bottle. This in bottle finish creates a rich, deep, silky bourbon. But before that goes in, it's fired up to toast out the fruit and vanilla notes of the wood.
The spire is then infused with West Oak Coffee from Denton, TX. The cold brew provides a sweet dark chocolate and coffee finish. What a way to start a morning.
Remember the San Francisco World Spirits Competition I mentioned the other day? This bad boy won a double gold.
How Can I Get It?
Oak and Eden is a small operation. It's only in stores in CA, CO, LA, KS, KY, MI, OK, TX, and TN. They can ship online to AZ, CA, CO, ID, KY, LS, MA, NH, NV, NM, OH, OR, TN, TX, VA, WA. Find a seller.
I unfortunately don't live in or near any of those states. And we can't leave our houses right now anyway. If you live in one of those states, reply to this email. I can't wait to get my hands on a bottle.
Cold Hard Truth
After yesterday's email, Marie from MD turned the water cold at the end of her shower. Keep challenging yourselves and letting us know how it goes! In case you missed it, here's the cold shower story.
Bye for now,
P.S. Welcome new friends from Asheville Today. I'm glad you liked the video. I'm working one another to bring some more joy and laughter to your social distancing.
