Since I'm going to be away in New Orleans for the next five days at Tales of the Cocktail, and also because I've needed assistance for a long time now, Mrs. Hiram and Zman have been made permanent moderators.

My wife Trinity has been an invaluable source of support to me with WS in spite of the fact that she's sick to death of hearing about absinthe. She's been my sounding board, advisor and confidante. I have no doubt that her increased participation will be very much appreciated.

Zman has been a good friend, mentor and co-conspirator almost since the inception of WS and has never missed an event. Interestingly, while our political orientations are almost diametrically opposed, our core values and ideals are surprisingly similar in a number of ways.

Please give these two good people your cooperation and support, as I know they will both be tremendous assets to this place.

I must now get back to packing.

Thank you Trin and Zman!!

Cheers all!! :cheers:


P.S. Mrs. Hiram is PMSing this week, so be on your best behavior or she'll kick your ass.

Few could represent our slandered beverage as well as you
Looking forward to your triumph return, Hiram.

We came as strangers - soon we have friends. They come over. They sit with us. They drink with us. They talk to us. They tell us about the great big terrible things they've done and the great big wonderful things they're going to do. Their hopes, their regrets. Their loves, their hates. All very large, because nobody ever brings anything small into a bar. Then I introduce them to Harvey, and he's bigger and grander than anything they can offer me. When they leave, they leave impressed. The same people seldom come back.

Wonderful! Congratulations on getting the corner office while your assistants, underlings, serfs, comrades-in-arms assist you in your noble endeavor for the betterment of all.

May you and all attendees have a great time. :heart:

You got a problem with that?

Crap, I read it the same way.

My mind is starting to work like Absomphe's. :paperbag3:

Perhaps in the form of "love offerings" or "donations"?

My pea-shooter is wayyyyyyyyyyy more powerful than yours. Mine is programmed to automatically activate itself once a month, and when those little buggers start shooting out of their tubes you'd better make sure you're well out of target. :devil:

Welcome to the constabulary. Do you accept bribes?


But of course we accept bribes. :rolleyes:

To be bribed or not all depends on how well one offers and how big one donates.

Hiram, have a great trip



Hiram is having A BLAST!!!!! :holiday:

The good stuff started with him being picked up from the airport and taken to his hotel in a LIMO. :shock:

There's been a lot more good stuff, like sipping at the Old Absinthe House and sampling 34246201348 cocktails from a carousel bar. :drunk:

Oh, sure it would! Y'all, I have been fortunate enough to have viewed some of Mrs. Hiram's artwork and all I can say is INCREDIBLE!

Would you accept a bookcase as a bribe? ;) He he.

By the way, if anyone out there, especially in the Seattle area, would like a real cast iron bathtub complete with funny feet for FREE, let me know as soon as possible. I am moving house and it HAS to go! Warning, though. The sucka weighs a ton! Takes 3+ people to move it.

I'd love one, if you can get it to Phoenix.

Not that I'd ever use it, but I have to redo a bathroom before I can sell.

Every time I see that phrase, I still read it as "half-naked bun" and have a mental image of Mrs. Hiram with her hair up.


Wearing the specified outfit and accoutrements, of course.

Hey Trinity, It's great to see you around here even if it took Hiram taking a break to do it. Z-man, my utmost respect, as always.
Litany against fear of Absinthe - I must not fear Absinthe. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my Absinthe. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the Absinthe has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
