Wait. Or is it post often drunk? Drink and post. A lot.

Welcome! I'll have something Islay since you're over the pond.

Welcome fellow drunkard soberasajudge! I am also an expat that recently moved to Europe so we are in the same pond-ish. I'll take a dirty martini with some bleu cheese stuffed olives. Maybe an order of nachos too? :D

Back Again At Least For Now!

It's been a long time, but I never gave up the fight.

After much trauma, scarred for life, but strangely still amongst ye!
Sumatra finally spewed me up!

Now growling to get back to Bali next week!

Angker Beer, Tuak, and Mansion House Vodka are my fuel for now.

Been learning to make local fruit wine in the last couple years!

Miss friends and so sad to hear of the passing of Palinka!

I'll try to be more here, although vanishing was what was needed!

Cheers, Peace and Love!

Welcome back Palmy. Your visits are always welcome.Sounds like you are alive and kicking. Good luck with the hooch making. Brew beer and the occasional mead once in a while. Cheers!

Ya there is booze here, not as easy as it was just 3 years ago, hence my move to Bali, the most liberal part of an increasingly uptight place!
Nias is great and they make seriously strong tuak based hooch called arak!
Fortunately also a product of Bali.
Cheers!

OK, here goes:

I've been lurking around here for at least a decade, but only during February. It's a long, sad story, but no need to tell it now.

I'm an American, and I teach at a notable university in Germany (where I have lived since 1995), and am the department lush. No further details, since I don't want a visit to the dean's office asking if I need treatment. (I don't.) My students almost certainly talk behind my back, but I have never heard any rumors or complaints.

My booze taste is simple: beer and bourbon. I'm not really into cocktails, though I've tried many. I do keep a full bar, but only the bourbon bottles need constant replacement. My go-to bourbon is Four Roses, because it's the only one of three brands I can get at the closest store within walking distance. As for the other two brands: I actually took the pledge not to drink JD anymore several years ago (I know, I know: lurking this long seems a bit creepy. But there you have it) and Jim Beam white just bores me. As for beer, well, it's free here in Germany, so I just drink cheap unless someone else is buying.

Is that enough about me? I'd rather just buy y'all a round of Four Roses to say thanks and get back to lurking. I just figured it was time to say, "Hi."

Welcome Bingo (I knew a farmer who had a dog with the same name).

Glad you decided to finally speak up. In what part of Germany are you located?

Thanks for buying the next round. Four Roses it is then.

New guy. A little about myself:

Born and raised in Northern Nevada, U.S., and proud of it. I get enraged when I find myself in the kind of place where the bars close at 2am...

I can find the appeal of damn near any drink, as long as it’s not a sugary mess made for college girls. I’ve definitely put some of the decendants of John Jameson through graduate school though. I’m a daily drinker, and weekend rager; I’ve been known to stumble out of my favorite local between 7 & 8 on a Saturday morning, go find a diner with breakfast and a good Bloody Mary (or a bottomless drink special), and hunker down there until early afternoon when it seems reasonable to return to the pub.

Been an auto mechanic for 23 years now (thus the drinking), and drive in motor racing events through the warm seasons. It gets down right wintery here in the Sierras, so racers hibernate during winter.

I probably won’t be too chatty on here, but I’ve been around MDM long enough that I thought it was about damn time I said hello.

Cheers fellows.

I live in Hamburg, but work a two hour train ride away. I spend a lot of time on trains. Hence my sig--I typically buy a little bottle of Jaegermeister for breakfast when I get to the station in Hamburg, then another when I arrive at my destination. Other than the two small bottles of Jaegermeister, I don't usually drink until I finish work for the day--though I do keep a pint in my office for stress or emergencies. But I suppose I can elaborate on these sorts of things in other forums. For now, thanks for the welcome.
