Hmm.. think I could get some cold hard cash for the last night's dinner left overs?

the question is 'where are the other 3?'

Awww Petermarc, you beat me to that one. I was all set to post her here for all to ridicule.

Sorry, I only like my heinous rip-off dolls smoky and swathed in unidentifiable animal hair.

"Trip" on the green fairy indeed. Trip, fall, and split yer head open, running in horror.

This mini was up to $60 but check out the bid history. The high bidder backed out.

Why?

I emailed her and gave her a gentle push in the direction of Kallisti's own absinthe buyers' guide.

Vera, that reminds me of all the hemp stuff that is sold for much money (from shampoo to t-shirts). In the old days, that was the cheapest stuff you could get - now that hemp is illegal in most countries (except for the industrial variety) the kids will buy stuff made from hemp just because it says hemp...

Absinthe feminine wash? "Excuse me while I wip this out".

By Verawench on Friday, July 06, 2001 - 09:17 am: Edit

mouthwash.. hmm... are they coming out with a new line of deodorant anytime soon? dental floss? Facial toner? Shampoo?

Forget Absinthe NS... gimme Absinthe TP!

Punkass... implies a good deal of smarts and attitude which CAN be a good thing. See, no problem if you're a punkass with me. If you're a punkass with, say, Don, pray for your life.

Sorry, Vera I also LOL at Wolfgang's "Verlaine after a binge" post and thought the cartoon was self-explanatory as an illustration of it, not to mention the possibilities of wormwood as romance facilitator. Is being a punkass a *good* thing?

Is there more to that Ebay item than meets the eye? Can you make absinthe with a vial of that stuff and a bottle of corn likker?

By Heiko on Thursday, July 05, 2001 - 10:28 pm: Edit

Is it the famous Hill's Absinthe Herbal Mouthwash?

By Morriganlefey on Thursday, July 05, 2001 - 09:57 pm: Edit

Mmmm! Minty-fresh breath AND secondary effects!!

you're a punkass, you know that? :P

What don't you understand about "yes it is"?

By Verawench on Thursday, July 05, 2001 - 01:35 pm: Edit

yes and?

By Artemis on Thursday, July 05, 2001 - 08:56 am: Edit

Yes it is.

Check the graphic on my profile - the Black Prince's friend and a serving wench.

tres romantique, n'est-ce pas?

Actually, if you are just a regular customer at SC, (no special deals), from the US, the Montana Minis will cost you about $4. So, $9 with a spoon is not a bad price, at all.

By Jk_Deth on Sunday, July 01, 2001 - 10:50 pm: Edit

Is that capitalism? Or is this the wrong thread for that?

By Chrysippvs on Sunday, July 01, 2001 - 10:27 pm: Edit

You can thank the sodding troll that turned me into e-bay for all that...

By _Blackjack on Sunday, July 01, 2001 - 09:46 pm: Edit

Don't worry, Justin. I didn't think $9 was too outreagous, considering the mini and the spoon are each about $2. What amazed me was that somebody was bidding high on the same bottle (the newer version, even...) BY ITSELF. When I see those Absente sets going for 4 times retail or more, and Luxemborgian pea-soons going for $50, I get to wondering if my sense of self-rightousness is really worth all the money it costs me...

BTW, I love your detailed disclaimer.

By Chrysippvs on Sunday, July 01, 2001 - 08:49 pm: Edit

hey hey hey...I start bidding at 1.00. People pay what they want to. That is free trade economics, people paying what they are willing to and no more.

By Scoobydoo on Sunday, July 01, 2001 - 08:02 pm: Edit

Damn...I should rip people off like that guy too!
Then I could afford all the good absinthe :)

By _Blackjack on Sunday, July 01, 2001 - 07:53 pm: Edit

Yes, yet another stupid Ebay trick. Somebody is selling a Montana mini and it's already up 20 $32.

http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1161413376

Two auctions down, Justin is selling the same thing, except WITH a bistro glass and repro spoon, for $9.

http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1162402692

Y'know, if people really want to get ripped off so badly that they pay an extra $20 to NOT get a glass and spoon, maybe this capitalism thing isn't so bad...
