It's a good thing they legalized pot and homosexuality. Because anyone buying Hill's has to be stoned and are obviously getting screwed.

Both Absente and Versinthe are made as two different versions, one for the EU (with A. absinthum) and one for the US (with something else). I think Versinthe is decent- I've only had the Euro version. It tastes very fresh and lemon balmy.

Oh, darn. I spent all my time in Ottawa looking for codeine cough syrup. My loss. Um, no.

You can get absente at the ABC down the street here in DC.

BC has been carrying Hill's and Absente for nearly two and a half years, and they started carrying an off-shoot of Hill's called Green Tree nearly a year ago.

Well, I'm not sure whether to laugh or retch.

Our local provincial government's liquor monopoly here (www.lcbo.com) is carrying HILL'S of all things.

And Versinthe too.

Now, what with legalizing gay marriages, eventually decriminalizing pot and this, I imagine the cross-border tourism trade will shoot WAY UP.

Oh well.
