Hello from Long Beach, CA!
Firstly, i am what you seem to consider a "lurker" at this time, i've been reading alot of reviews/instructions/comments on this wonderful site for a while now, and have finally decided to jump in, register, and start to communicate
The first thing i noticed in reading the information in the forums? It seems there is a wealth of information, and knowledge readily available for the taking, which is awesome and much appreciated!
At this very moment, i have honestly not even wet my lips yet with this elixir (SP) you call Absinthe, but maybe 15 years ago i had developed an interest in trying, and, i think at that time it was not so easy to get (or maybe impossible to get in the US?),. It wasnt again until maybe 2 years ago that i started running across info, and it seemed that Absinthe could be either bought, or shipped into the US, so i started doing some more research, and although it kind of petered out again, i am now truly ready for my first experience.
Rather than bore you into tears, or ask a bunch of unfounded questions at this time, i will simply state that i have ordered 2 different bottles to try, and when they arrive i will give a few tries before checking back in with any comments/questions.
For now, i just wanted to auickly say HI!, and hope to be back soon for which i assume will be the start of a great learning experience for me personally.
Nice to meet you all!!!!
