You might be on crack. It's one of the main ingredients in 9 out of 10 HG's...

Great, Deluge! I'm excited to hear how it is. You're not gonna do something silly like keep it stashed away for some "special occasion", are ya?

Actually, that's probably what I would do but I really
want to hear how you like it. Have you had vintage
Pernod before?

I just got off the telephone with a friend who told me the story of his first (and only) encounter with Pernod Fils.

My friend has an acquaintance, we'll call him the Black Prince, from a moneyed family whose fortunes have declined. Still the prince grew up in a house with a wine cellar, etc.

So one day my friend mentions absinthe to the Prince. Prince Blackie says, "what the hell is that"? He gets the explanation, and replies, "sure I'll try anything once". My friend gets out a bottle of Tarragona, purchased at a very dear price. Prince says "Oh I recognize that, we've got a bottle of that at home". Friend calls bullshit. Prince says "no, it was my grandpa's. It's in the wine cellar; I remember the label because my brother and I used to play down there, we'd roll it to each other on the floor (!!). I've always thought it was some kind of wine". So a few days later my friend goes to visit the Prince, and there on the table is a bottle of Pernod Fils, the label all roughed up from rolling on the floor.

My friend starts to babble incoherently, mentions testing and archival and so on, but the Prince says "Fuck all that, we're going to drink this". And so they did. My friend sneaked to the kitchen, tried to find a container into which he could sneak some under the table or something, but the Prince wouldn't have it, decadent bastard. It's all gone now, but my friend does have the empty bottle. The cork has a Pernod brand in the top of it, just as described in the old pamphlet about the Pernod factory, revealed for the first time in a hundred years when Blackie peeled the wrap off that day.

The whole time he's telling me this story I'm laughing like hell, because he's saying, he doesn't understand the Prince. I said of course you do. I'm reminded of the tasting session Head P. and I had with about 11 very non-standard absinthes, all the way from Scandanavia, and after about three we couldn't tell the difference and didn't care much anyway, but we got shit-faced on a winter night with the wind raging outside, fitting for an elixir of Odin. Sometimes, you just gotta say, "what the fuck".

I say that all the time, but it usually looks more like "what the fuck!?!?!?!"

All about perspective.

That's exactly what my business partner, and another friend said, at the turn of the millennium when we cracked open a bottle of 1865 champagne...what the fuck, if we wait any longer, the stuff might go bad!

To make things even spookier, I can't sleep tonight, so after I made that post (well after) I was listening to the radio - alternately Art Bell, with some kook describing the end of the world (very soon), and scanning. Then I catch a guy going on at great length - I mean 20 minutes with no commercials, about what a great and significant movie "Risky Business" was.

By the way, the Kook says that when a space shuttle mission is aborted due to problems with a meteor shower, the end is very soon after that. We're safe until 2005, I think, because the shuttles are grounded until then. It's a solar flare that will be the end of us, by the way, along with 300-mph winds and 2000-foot waves. Sorry to spoil yall's Easter, but the new photo restriction prevents me from posting the picture of marshmallow Peeps bunnies in the grass like I was fixing to do.

No can do, I have no place to put it. Anyway, I wasn't going to shoot it until dawn. Just imagine little white candy bunnies in the grass. Or the world destroyed by tidal waves, whatever.

That's what the kook was talking about. The one that will be the finish of us will be much bigger and more direct, sez he. I don't say he's a kook because of the subject matter, but because of his method, which is "remote viewing", in other words clairvoyance, which he never explains on the air, but he DOES offer seminars on how to do it. For a fee, of course.

Indeed, Hartsmar. What's strange is just last night I was reading an article about M.R. James, and how he got the ideas for some of his stories - it talked about the wind actually being Odin. You can probably guess the identity of the Viking HGer - he was fond of putting things such as juniper berries in there - at the time I thought of that as a peculiarly Norse thing to do, but looking at the bottle of Sapphire gin I bought yesterday, I see that the juniper comes from the Mediterranean.
