I look at the bottle of vermouth as I strain my gin into a glass.


That's enough for me.

Total Spirit Consumption is only 4.8L per person PER YEAR?!?? (in 2002). 5L will last me maybe 4 weeks at best. And that's if i'm conservative with my drinking. Indeed. I go through about a handle a week. Did anyone from this board get a questionaire from these people? We may skew the curve a littl...

I wasn't trying to imply that I frequent seedy strip clubs (although I've been in a few that would make your skin crawl), I just prefer the type that are more conducive to drinking rather than the ones where the upscale business man attempts to impress a stripper by throwing money around. The more m...

I could live the rest of my life in peace and happiness if I never again were subjected to gross internet pics like tubgirl, bloated and/or naked people, hideous bleeding crime scenes, deformed animals or babies, and sights of that ilk. If I ever felt the urge to see pics like that, I am perfectly ...

The worst part is that from the scenery you described in your story, I've concluded that you were actually in a nice strip club. The kind of places I go to charge ten bucks to get in and then give you free beer or rails all night, or serve pitchers of Bud for $5 everyday of the week. The nude women ...

Re: Giant Bottles of GIN!

When you say giant, just how giant? 4 or 5 times the size of a handle? These were 55 gallon drums with the word Gin spray painted across them... now weren't they? Just tell me the address of said establishment and I will do my own reserch. Isn't that how everyone buys their gin? They got some fanta...

What I'm really thinking about is something in the CAD field. I have no formal training, but I've been doing it off and on at work for a few years, and since acquiring a copy of the program for my home computer, I've become rather adept at operating the program while intoxicated. It seems on the nig...

Re: Drinking at work type thread

If you've got construction experience you could work as an estimator for a contractor. I was thinking about that, but seeing how many estimators we've gone through at my current place of employment, I'd rather not. It looks like a rather high pressure job where if you're good at it you make big mon...

Drinking at work type thread

I'm considering moving out East, North East to be specific (CT, RI, MA type area), and I was looking over job listings in the area and I found myself thinking, "Hmmm...which of these jobs would accomodate drinking and being productive?" Being in construction does not exactly make drinking on the job...
