I just found this on another site on Drinking in Japan...

Drinking Manners

When drinking alcoholic beverages, it is a Japanese custom to serve each other, rather than pouring the beverage into one's own glass. You are supposed to periodically check your friends' cups, and serve them more once their cups are getting empty. Likewise, if someone wants to serve you more alcohol, you should quickly empty your glass and hold it towards that person.

While it is considered bad manner to become obviously drunk in some very formal restaurants, the same is not true for other types of restaurants such as izakaya, as long as you do not bother other guests.

Do not start drinking until everybody at the table is served and the glasses are raised for a drinking salute, which usually is "kampai". Avoid using "chin chin" when drinking a toast, since in Japanese this expression refers to the male genitals.

Yep Tish, and his first statement was an apology(I think he thought I was gonna leave him out there), so I guess folks need to think about WHO they are shitting on when they are in the middle of nowhere at 110 degrees. Heli's new motto: Think outside the butt!

I said something claiming offense to someone offensive about what they said (or more like the way they said it) and when I re-read it I realize I had misstated to where it sounded (on re-re-reading it) like I was saying something offensive about someone totally non-offensive...
And I meant not offense the way it sounded but to the one who was offensive without being offensive to anyone, and, well...
Well, if you're talking about what I think you're talking about RtW is would probably find it funny and rex is so touchy he'll take offence at anything. Not to worry.

As you grow older you'll realize that the real gifts and the real kindnesses and the real joys have nothing to do with deserving and not deserving. I'm not xtian, but there does seem to be some sort of grace in the universe, and allowing yourself to experience it fully is one of the wisest things you can do.


Please see me, bluesky. I'm probably wiht the Black Rock City volenteer Fire Department, but I'll know better later.

And how are we all going to get together and solve gigglesnort's problems so that she can come next year?

Chandon Blanc de Noirs? Very good. >glug glug glug<

Welcome to the bar!!

As for me... it's time for me to Skeedaddle - my better 1/2's office is having a honest-to-goodness cocktail party in an hour (when was the last time you heard of an actual honest-to-god cocktail party in the default world?? Reminds me of the good old days!!) and it's across town, and I should prolly be there! Kinda gives me an idea, tho... maybe we could do an earlycomers afternoon cocktail hour and social on Monday or Tuesday night (so as not to compete with The Bistro on Thursday)... Or morning... Formal wear required - Tux tails for the women, Ball gowns for the boys. >>grins<<

Anyway, see y'all in a while... BTW, threw a couple cases of IPA in the reach-in for tonite, help yourself!!

Hello.

~feather blows out ass while speaking~

I am not a porcupine.

~more feathers~

Can I get some service here?!

~feathers, still~

Seriously, I am NOT a porcupine.
I feel somehow "outed" as a leper might,
aspersions lending welts to pelt, as it were
(it is not! I have no pelt!) if I had one.

All I want is a drink
but when i talk you all look at me
as though i am wildly inebriated
(i am, but that is beside the point),
i am acting extremely sober
except for these tell-tale feathers
shooting out my ass on each & every
syllable.

~110 feathers shoot out butt~

Arrgh.
Nobody understands me.

~more feathers, subject finds Sue's free IPA, drinks quietly this mothers milk~

I was about to bitch about the mess.

These children keep running away

old where.

Mmmm...

Waltz in late, and here's this one-eyed monster running all over the bartop. Jeez... talk about a downhill slide..

G'morning everyone. What a nite. Party was a bust (obviously not one of ours!) but the tequila was gratis, so it balanced out sorta... the gear checkout got postponed for a dump run (maybe they're related!) and a backup of laundry... arghhh.. but I got a couple new lamps (with shades, good for bar lighting >>wink<< ) and plans.

Can't wait to see the windmill burn vid. Too cool, Sputnik, and congrats.

AIIIEEEE!!!!!!

(Jumps up, shying away from her suede-covered high back custom barstool)

There's a... penis... snuggling up next to my armpit. Quick, hand me the frying pan. Mommy told me never to get to close to those things when they're wild and on the loose!

(Starts trying to hit it with her trusty cast iron 10", making it dance side to side, eventually watching it dart into a hole in the wall...)

A woman is just *not* safe anymore! Coffee, please??
