Nope. A pint of Guinness in the afternoon, and I was fine.

So true. When I was in my early 20s it was. Damn glad those days are behind me.

I haven't made any yet! I figure it's like writing thank you notes after a wedding; Emily Post says I can get my house in order first. :lol:

Rite Aid (formerly Thriftys) has great ice cream. My favorite is Medieval Madness. It's Three Musketeers flavored ice cream.
Absolutely awesome!

I have this weird obsession with the Snyder of Hangover (or Hanover, as they call themselves in stealth mode) thick pretzels. They have this weird sourdough taste. I go through a box in two sittings. So I can't buy them. Most other pretzels don't do it for me. Whatever "it" is.

(aside: I didn't say that he was wrong, Eric's always right. I just was stunned to see it coming from him.)

(Someone out there, if not tpbm, is sort of bemused that I have two hangover items in a row here.)


TPBM knows that pretzels are really just another kind of cracker. And that crackers are another kind of bread.

Ugh....more than one im afraid. We are up to 4 now. And that's just the people directly adjacent to me. This is the problem with having a decent size lot in suburbia.... Too many neighbors.

And then there are the neighbors on bordering streets. They tend to make my business their business...

Not near as prosperous as that little girl on the tv commercials a few years back, but hey, when I was growing up and found a pop bottle that I'd take to the store and get 3 cents for,
I felt like a Rockefeller.

No, I like eating ice. I like to take shaved ice, squeeze a lemon over it and sprinkle with red pepper.

Tequila, habanero, ice cream, on a nice fresh strawberry.

tpbm is actually intrigued by this possible flavor mix.

Tequila is associated with the worst hangover of my life (in the summer of 1985) and I still avoid it. (Unless it really was a hangover I had New Year's Day-- I only had a couple shots, so I think it was something else. Stress release and/or migraine. It had some delirium along with the vomiting, sh***ing, headache, aching joints and muscles, etc. Probably another migraine.)

No, but I did "dip my pen in company ink" years ago. We were in our 20's....she worked at a local material supply house. During that companys holiday party, we discovered we were hot for one another.

While technically not a Co worker, I was at that supply house several times a day getting materials. Once we hooked up, I was there a whole lot! Even managed to "break in" the break room!

Man, I haven't thought about those days in a long time.....

I miss the idea of Colbert, but I don't watch much tv, or even much youtube, so it has little possible effect on me.

I was up to $5.71, but then I moved something on my dresser and found I left 3 rolls of quarters behind when I took the rest to the BM Fund bank. Now I got $35.71, almost enough for a VP.

TPBM has been so broke they used spare change to buy food.
