ABSINTHE AUCTION QUOTE OF THE WEEK



I prefer "The Green Fairy From Hell".

Oh, and in the Havel's auction "Extra highest level of Thujon".

EXTRA highest!

Once upon a time, there was an Absinthe Drinkers' Academy ...

First, there was Boris Yeltsin Vodka (made in France!); now, there's Havel (as in Vaclav) Absinthe, which looks like olive oil.

I want to believe that the auction's humor is unintentional.

If you are thinking of bidding on these make sure that they still have the original absinthe labels in them. Each volume had one or more labels enclosed, but these were often removed and sold seperately. Missing labels reduces the value.

Madame Delahaye's "L'absinthe" journals are an extremely useful reference source. Until the publication of her most recent two books they were absolutely indispensible - they're less essential now, but still contain lots of information not easily accessible elsewhere. There were only 500 copies each of the first issues printed, so complete sets like this one turn up only occasionally.

Have a Delahaye day!

Petermarc, Oxygenée, anybody: Do you find these of interest?

In Tarzan French, you could write:

"Mais non, mon chou-chou. Faux. Pas absinthe. Affreuse. Quel dommage! Bisoux, le Timk"

(Actually, please don't!)
