Well, I joined that other forum recently and figured I might as well sign up over here too, given I'm currently in MUST READ ALL THE THINGS (about absinthe) mode. So, um, hi! I'm a Silicon Valley-dwelling engineer-nerd-type catlady with way too many hobbies. I live in a house in the San Jose area with my awesome significant-other and our quartet of spoiled kitties.

As for how I got interested in absinthe…well, once I was disabused of my adolescent belief that "wormwood" was actually wood that had been infested by hallucinogen-secreting worms, shock.gif I became mightily intrigued by the fact that absinthe had this whole complicated sordid history. The green color and tendency to show up in vampire movies helped pique my interest too.

All that aside, though, the thing that finally compelled me to try the stuff was learning that it tasted like anise and fennel and other interesting tasty herbs and whatnot. It sounded like the exact beverage I would have designed to my own taste specifications if I'd ever gotten around to doing something like that.

Anyhow…to avoid making what should be a short story long, the first absinthe I ended up trying (just last month!) was Lucid, and the second was Ridge Verte. I liked them both a lot, though at this point I definitely think I prefer the Ridge as it's a fair bit more complex and seems to have more interesting "stages" of flavor. I'm certainly planing on trying other types as the opportunities present themselves, and I look forward to continuing obsessively reading along the way.
