If you want to enjoy vodka, then you have to mix with something. I usually go with three fingers vodka, plus three finger Ocean Spray Cran-Pomagranate Mix, with a splash of OJ. If you can substitute the Cran-Pom with Cran-Blueberry it's even more awesome.

But for now I'm drinking cheap whiskey and cheap beer.

Beer and whiskey - yes! Cheap - yes!

Do you remember Meister Brau? That used to be my beer in the early 90's. Then it disappeared - but I found Steel Reserve 211. But when I compared the cheap beer to the price of Bud, I found there wasn't much difference, so now I get Bud whenever it is beer night.

Yeah, Meister Brau. I remember that, along with a lot of other unmentionables. But now I drink PBR. It's $14.99/30 pack here and that's great at 50 cents a can. I back that up with LTD Canadian Whiskey at $18/1.75 L and I'm good with that. Plus the LTD often comes with a $5 rebate coupon for just buying one 1.75L, periodically. I have one out there now. Takes a while to get the check but they always pay. I think I must get at least $100/year back in liquor coupon rebates. For vodka, I drink Fleischmann's. Drink their gin too, unless I'm into splurging at a bar. Then I'll only drink Bombay. Fleischmann's is another distiller that is great with rebates, especially around the Holidays. I'm sure they've got me in their "drunkard" file! LOL!

WTF? rebates from booze bottles? How have i missed that? I just automatically get down and look at the bottom shelf for the generic no-name booze to save my meager wages. I wouldn't mind drinking something nice, but I frankly don't know if I have enough gumption to mail in a rebate card.

They exist but they disappear quickly. People pocket them and then scam other people's addresses for the rebate because you're only allowed one per household. You have be a regular to get your share

Well Sammy - it looks like you and I are the only solitary drinkers tonight. Perhaps all of our fellow drunkards all went out tonight. Probably even showered. Probably even put on clean clothes. Who knows - maybe even those goddamb elitists wiped their ass before heading out for the night. Bah. Who needs 'em!

Well, I've been in drunkard chat Huge until some Dude in Germany who can't work his computer fucked me up.

But yeah, we're alone, except for the two hours I spent at a friends house earlier watching his Granddaughter smear cake all over herself.

I keep asking why but never get any answers. I probably never will.

Meister Brau, Fleischmanns, it`s amazing how many german names float around there in the states. Sammy, I think the guys in chat are skandinavian.

Hey you Krauts, along with the Slavics, started this alcohol thing. I'm deeply indebted to you and your forefathers for that!

Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Give a drunk man tortilla chips, Velveeta and a hair dryer and he has nachos.

I can't place the dead guy, but i'm sure i've seen him. Neatly trimmed gray hair and freshly pressed and laundered clothes. Everybody says he told great stories. Probably means he was a windbag who bored the shit out of everybody.

Be glad you aren't on shitbook. I hate when people post about Trump and all these pictures of their children on their first day of school. Really...?

God I'm such an asshole.
