I like drinking absinthe on the nights before my days off.
« on: August 28, 2007, 10:05:11 PM »
I'm sitting here with my first glass of 140 proof absinthe from Spain reading the forums.

I think I might be the coolest person ev-ar... I feel so terribly post-decadent pre-drunk 19th century.

Absinthe tastes like licorice and makes vodka seem like bottled water.

Goodbye cruel world.  I'll see on on the other side.  In eight hours.  When I wake up and want to kill everyone.

Before anyone gets their pantaloons in a wad over me drinking... I think it only fair to point out that I hardly drink anymore at all (I have had to get by in the interim on something people refer to as "personality.")... and I think I can chill with the green fairy for a bit.

Seriously... this stuff rules.  Tastes vile... but is amazing.

I'm currently listening to "Come and Play in the Milky Night" by Stereolab, and soon my best friend Jennie will be here, and we're going to a disco night.

This might be the best Tueday night in the history of everything ever.

To absinthe!

It's not illegal to look peruse the selections of absinthe in Europe.  You just have to be over the legal drinking age in the US.  And plus, absinthe isn't classified as a drug.  It's weird.

Nor is it illegal for me to tell you that they're brilliant when it comes to shipping to North America.

It does.

140 proof and it contains herbs that are known to be mildly hallucinogenic.

It's very distinctive.  Plus so terribly late 1800s.  Arthur Rimbaud and Oscar Wilde chugged it like mad.

Well Benj, you're entitled to pick your poison but why something that tastes yucky and makes you hallucinate? If you want to hallucinate why not just take some acid? Wishes I could hang with you, you are halarious and I love your style. It is all your own.. ;D

I love this quote from early last century about Absinthe:

Absinthe makes you crazy and criminal, provokes epilepsy and tuberculosis, and has killed thousands of French people. It makes a ferocious beast of man, a martyr of woman, and a degenerate of the infant, it disorganizes and ruins the family and menaces the future of the country.

Here's what absinthe did for me tonight...

I made friends with some TG bitch to Boogie Wonderland..

My friend Jennie and I kicked some disco Mars Bar ass.

I made friends with, and made out with an extremely hot specimen of manhood who possesses a large penis.

I was all kinds of wasted and slurred something about being poz into his ear... which he said was cool and he then proceeded to shove my cock in his mouth.

Best... nigt... ever.

Absinthe fuckin rules, people.

Do it more often.

Absinthe.

tastes like happy.

Oh Christ, I'm wasted.

I actually likey the taste of absinthe - on occasion I'm a pernod or sambuca sipper - that's probably why.

On my last night in Atlanta, me and JK had a spooky theme night based around the movie Jack the Ripper. The attached photo is basically a goldfish bowl full of absinthe and ginger ale on dry ice. Twas a fun night! ;D

Bisous for Benj! :-*

(who doesn't drink much...well, she just drinks till she sleeps ::))

Edited to add: Actually, the one in the photo wasn't with ginger ale - I think it was with OJ or whatever could be found in the fridge - ie. after a few too many with ginger ale... :-X

For those who simply dig licorice taste and want it in a form more easily acquired at most liquor stores, you can try either Ricard or Marie Brizzard anisette. It's quite tasty. Sometimes taken with some water mixed in. Yum. I tend to prefer Ricard on ice. Admittedly it doesn't have the romantic artist's death at an early age aura of absinthe, but then not everyone is a Modigliani.

Oh God.

I want to die.

My everything hurts.

But last night rocked so hard.  So very hard indeed.

And Doxie... I have the day off today... that's why I did what (and who) I did last night.

I'm gonna drink Vitamin Water, watch the Craft, and possibly rip out my own eyeballs.

The pain... the sheer, gut-wrenching pain.

P.S.  I have noticed that working out 4-5 times a week and having put on almost 10 lbs. of muscle has increased my metabolism (and my general health) to the point where hangovers aren't nearly so bad as they were three months ago.  That said, this is a bad one, and I want to die. 

I bid you good day.

Did you drink your Absinthe properly...........?
I mean with over a perforated spoon with sugar ................
Because that`s the way to drink a real absinthe.............
And if it is really real WTF did you find it ?
Because a real one , has much more than a touch of some hallucinogenic herbs in it..................and it is forbidden in most countries.
Other delightfull things that I`ve tasted include a :
1.Marijuana smoked through a drilled watermelon
2.A shisha appe-has*** mix

I'm sitting here with my first glass of 140 proof absinthe from Spain reading the forums.

I think I might be the coolest person ev-ar... I feel so terribly post-decadent pre-drunk 19th century.

Absinthe tastes like licorice and makes vodka seem like bottled water...Before anyone gets their pantaloons in a wad over me drinking... I think it only fair to point out that I hardly drink anymore at all (I have had to get by in the interim on something people refer to as "personality.")... and I think I can chill with the green fairy for a bit.
...Tastes vile... but is amazing...To absinthe!

I am positively swooning---let me get out my smelling salts. Tastes vile, less filling!

I must admit drinking abstinthe any time with the spoon and sugar, is one of my dreams. I should get on with it and do it. I love Sambuca and some coffee beans, I paint, I write, I dress funny, all of it fits. I should get on with it. OHHHHHHHH to have someone to drink it with.

Wow, after reading this, I think I'm going to relapse.... ;)

Why weren't my drinking days ever this fun?  Well, I guess they were, when I was like 17.
