Dieter: I am so full of anticipation that my genitals have sucked up into my body cavity. Before we begin, would you like to touch my Monkey?

Karl-Heinz: I would be honored.

Dieter: Touch him! Love him! Liebe mein affe-mienke! [Karl-Heinz shakes hands with Dieter’s monkey, sitting on a pedestal] Now I am as happy a little girl. Let us see the first video.

In Japan, it is Vernal Equinox Day. To celebrate, T73 gave me my first fountain!

How noble of T73. Maybe he's hoping you'll let him use it too?

I don't have much of a collection as yet, and probably never will due to lack of funds availibility.

I do have an old East Glass with an unusual doss line. It only holds 15cl to the line. I was told it was a barkeepers glass that had a small resivour so that it would look like they were drinking as much as the customer, but would not. Presumably this was so the barkeep did not get plastered.

I'm waiting for this to arrive:

They were advertised as beer glasses. Too bad there is only one Pastis Glass. I'd like to get at least four of them.

Try filling the glass while looking down into it. I have found that many of the glasses I have will do a proper full serving that way. My theory is that they were done that way because the bartender would be looking down and it also gives the illusion of a bigger serving.
I don't want to take over the world. Just poke at it, make it twitch.

Hey, it's a start, and you could have done much, much worse.

Try filling the glass while looking down into it...

I agree. That's an observation I made the first time I filled one of these:

Compared to my first bottle, your selection is golden. The fountain seemed to turn out nicely.

Daemon,

The glass must contain the La Fée (which I have not yet tried), as my Emile Coulin is nowhere near as bright green...

It is...I like the LaFee, its not complicated and an oilmix but is decent. I really find the Emile Coulin to be kind of nasty. Has some weird tinge to it, that lingers. Its alright once in awhile.

Thanks! It works great... and was worth the $42 (mouthwash dispenser/matching toothbrush holder) investment at Lowes.

Hey elfnmagik, I know I'm late on this one, but I'm not sure what bike-shop speak you are referring to, but I've been on motorcycles since I was 4 yrs old, raced motocross, & superbike roadracing, and they have always been referred to as sprockets.

It's been a very long time since I raced motocross, Werewolf, but we called them sprockets, too. This was before the Japanese motocross invasion and get this, I rode a Czech bike: CZ 250. No sugar but more than once, I wanted to set it on fire.

Some of those have been emptied, but I like to keep the bottles. I have more on the way. We spoke of that in an earlier post about what you guys recommend. I'll be getting those soon.Attached File  100_1093.jpg   74.54KB   136 downloads

Bicycling shops.

I indicated in my post that in regard to motorcycles, it is referred to as sprocket (both front and rear)

O.K. Hiram, How's that? I think I re-sized it.

BSA! Bultaco! Now's there's some names I haven't heard in a while. Good bikes.

That King of Spirits Bottle is actually almost full. NASTY!!! Tastes like jet fuel! A couple of those bottles are not good, no sir, not good at all. I just can't bring myself to pour them out. :(

Right now in my shopping cart: François Guy 1 Liter
Un Emile 68 .7 L
Kübler 53 1 L

What about Barrique? Kind of pricey, but it's supposed to drank neat; served like cognac. Has anyone tried this one?

Also, what about Doubs. It's new, but it's macerated & from South Africa.

Any other good ones I should know about?

I just read about the Alandia Barrique yesterday. I don't know, it's extremely expensive (the bottle is only 0.2 ltrs) and it *sounds* a bit gimmicky to me, but hell, maybe it's delicious. I don't know. But I do know that I won't be ordering it - certainly not at that price.

As for the Doubs, well...others seem to like it but I can't say that I do. Somebody else around here (or FV) described it as tasting like gin mixed with Pine-Sol and I don't really disagree with that. I thought it smelled and tasted like a rabbit's cage.
