I thought the winners were announced via e-mail? Am I making this memory up? Damn, I've been too drunk to tell anymore.
Oh God, my grandmother would kill me.

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.

Ah I don't tweet. From the emails I got it seemed like no one was claiming the bottles. Absinthe has never been a curiosity of mine but how hard can it be to give away booze?

Winning absinthe is like saying "I was fucked in the mouth by wormwood and all I got was this cool sazerac shirt".

I'm a fan of Absinthe. I like the taste and the warm-hearted buzz it brings on. But I have to remember to clear my calendar for the next 24 hours.

Alas, neither have I ever put out a tweet,
...well, electronically.

Sounds too close to "queef"


but I understand that others do, and so there's no harsh on them from the likes of this here old curmudgeon.

Absinthe is very tasty and high proof. It's like cooking with fennel root. It will take over the taste of everything for a little while.
Pure wormwood would give you a really good buzz.

and I think I should have tweeted loudly for a bottle of serious booze from our benevolent host of this unique forum.

Ya know.


jeez, all this thinking is cutting into my drinking.
