Hans Christian Andersen, one of Denmark's few claims to fame after the vikings had emptied their last horns of mead, wrote a detailed diary, in which we find entries such as this one:

March 14, 1843
Drank absinthe and red wine. Sensual. +

The + occurs quite often in Andersen's diaries. It means that he jerked off.

The next evening he wrote:

Drank absinthe, bought cake, am now sitting happy and home, high up under roof, my thought is the blood's.

now you know what the "dot-dot-dot" means.
Leave it to me as I find a way to be,
Consider me a satellite forever orbiting,

and Bottom ++"


I am a huge C.S. Lewis fan and in one of his diaries he wrote about being in an all boy's school as a child in England and making a trip to a production of a Midsumer's.. at an all girls school. He remarked that he enjoyed the play and that it was the first time he had ever seen a female Bottom.
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.
