The Absinthe Encyclopedia

Recommended Posts

I guess some of you may have seen this, but for those who haven't...

Anyone interested in absinthe should definitely have a really close look at this and I am quite sure it will be the book on absinthe. Oxy have done the probably not that easy work of compiling the contents of the Virtual Absinthe Museum (and then some) into the definitive absinthe guide. YAY!

Now I need to pre-order me one...

Just so long as it has a punt and some nice ullage, who cares?

 

Yes, you'll have to go back to not working at work, rather than not working on holiday.

:laf: Perfect!

 

 

But who is this David Nathan-Manson, and does he know anything about absinthe?

He's a devil that periodically raids my bank account!

Until I go back to not working at work, I can't afford your damn book.

Yes, that devil takes money from me all the damn time. He must have implanted a subconscious meme in my head commanding me to order every time that infernal newsletter comes out. Curses on him and his absinthe. :twitchsmile:

I hear the devil's greatest trick is convincing us he doesn't exist. I really hope that's not true.

 

Because the devil has pre-ban. :devil:

I feel a strong subconscious urge right now to buy another bottle of Taboo Gold. I don't know where this urge is coming from, I think it's emanating from the newsletter. I know it's definitely not me.

Economy's hitting the restaurant business pretty hard. I won't be able to afford that book for 6 months. But I'll be saving up for it.

And there I was, all set to use my 1888 International Detective's Conference souvenir magnifying glass, just to get in the spirit of the thing. B)

It was my birthday this past weekend and I was a little disappointed when I saw that my present was not shaped like it would hold a bottle of absinthe.

 

When I picked it up and felt it, I thought, "Ooh, goodie! I think this is The Absinthe Encyclopedia!"

 

I opened it and my heart leapt when I saw that I was right!

 

And then my wife started laughing.

 

She printed up the cover to the Encyclopedia and taped it on to one of our books.

 

She had a good laugh but then explained that the book was delayed. Shoot!

 

I must say that was funny...I guess.

 

Anyway, I can't wait for it to get here.

 

If people thought I was a pain before, wait until I get my encyclopedia. :twitchsmile:

I’ve been anxiously awaiting it since its announcement. Me thinks it’ll make a good fireside read come the New Year. :)

Fantastic!

 

 

 

 

Now I just have to wait until Christmas to see it since the wife and kids bought it as a present for me.

 

 

Hmmm, I wonder if I'm supposed to know about it? :secret2:

That's why I got it for myself for Christmas. I'll open it the day it arrives and taunt you with descriptions. :devil:

 

Oh, I never ask for anything for Christmas, I'm too impatient. :cheers:

Just heard that copies are on their way to Oxy from the printers in the US.

 

Any day now. Me very eager too. :)

 

 

Yay! My copy will be well traveled! :cheers:

Patience friends, when it arrives we'll all do the happy dance.

 

Perhaps Oxy will sign and number each one for us. Just a guess.

 

Optimism, it's ok in moderation. *smile*
