  1. Without soliciting a thesis, what make you of the preceding (secret agent man)? OR
  2. Happy belated birthday, Volpane!
  3. Must... control... drooling... (Have a great trip, Brooks!)
  4. I wasn't kidding earlier... Gargantua 'n Cloudy
  5. Thanks, Gertz! I'll have to add a bottle to my next order. I do hope you are referring to the one under the umbrella...
  6. So where in the absinthe continuum does La Ptite fall? Worth buying more than once?
  7. While I have yet to try any of the (justifiably) vilified Czechsinthe, I have had the Toulouse Lautrec. While it will win no awards (from me anyway), it is at least drinkable. In a lower rank sort of way.
  8. Now my head is feeling wobbly. And it keeps coming in threes. I'm with Abby. TASTE. Whichever parameters are your personal faves, rank and enjoy!
  9. I suppose there is merit in the comment about capitalism getting in the way of a practical solution. However, given the problem of drug resistance in malaria, it might be prudent to apply some scientific common sense and make sure this new therapy is used wisely. No sense using uncontrolled dosages that might lead to over (or more importantly under) dosing. To anthropomorphize, these parasites are crafty devils and the range of available therapeutic agents is thin, at best. If a home-grown solution could be made available and utilized appropriately, then I'm all for it. Of course, the same critique can be applied to Big Pharma. It's not like they manage to avoid the development of drug resistance just because the drugs are "refined" and dispensed under the supervision of "competent" M.D.s
  10. Happy Birthday, Ari! May your birthday wish(es) come true... Or is it this Scimitar?
  11. Well, giving the absinthe bottles a break tonight. Drinking Cascade Mountain Gin on the rocks. I'm not a gin connoiseur, but like this stuff, Sarticious, and Tanqueray No. 10. Have yet to try the Hendrick's (a friend is a big fan and I seem to recall a post or two here extolling it's unusual virtues). Cascade Mtn. Gin
  12. Cut your own hair, Sand? Before, during, or after the whiskey? Pictures? Especially the "mostly" ones...
  13. Happy Birthday, MP! You've a ways to go before your birthday cake is this hard to put out... Flame on!
  14. Happy Birthday, Heure Verte! Yesterday, I've been visited in my shop by someone working for the distillerie who's making... Absente....During the conversation, i thought about hanging him in my basement.
  15. If you're in a hurry, this ought to work. Sturdy, too. I'd stay away from these:
  16. Makes me think of those old Life cereal commercials. To paraphrase: "Give it to Shinsain, he'll drink anything!" (With a wink and a nod, Shinsain).
  17. Not to throw fuel on the fire, but do realize that customs duty fees are sometimes levied (thankfully, infrequently), even with the flying monkeys...
  18. Happy Birthday, Lanterne Verte! Quest on...
  19. Happy Birthday, TGI! Homer_Luftballoons_FM.mp3
  20. Drinking Ike. Listening to Brian Eno's "Another Green World". It just makes sense.
  21. sodden sot song... I walk the streets and wring my hands, trying hard to understand, but I just can't make myself believe that it's for good she's gone, why do I go through this pain, day and night it's all the same, heaven help a man like me who walks alone A man like me can't sit and cry, I walk the streets and wonder why a love like ours should go so wrong, I haven't seen her in so long The honky-tonks have no appeal, They don't help the way I feel, What on earth can ease a heart like mine That feels it can't go on Things have changed from what they were, Life's so different without her Heaven help a man like me who walks alone A man like me can't sit and cry, I walk the streets and wonder why a love like ours should go so wrong, I haven't seen her in so long The honky-tonks have no appeal, they don't help the way I feel, what on earth can ease a heart like mine that feels it can't go on things have changed from what they were, life's so different without her heaven help a man like me who walks alone "A Man Like Me" by Roger Miller (killer cover by Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys)
  22. As I smack myself in the head (a la the old V8 commercial): what a great idea! Especially for folks like me who prefer no sugar, but need the water decelerator...
