Hi all-

Been posting awhile on WS and decided to come on over here as well. I'm relatively new to absinthe, but I have enjoyed learning about it and trying different kinds so far. My screen name comes from the song by KISS, of whom I'm a fan. And in case the sarcasm hasn't come through in the title, I do have an elementary understanding of how absinthe is properly prepared and the actual effects on the drinker.

I live in Orange County, CA, so I initially bought and tried what was available locally. Lucid, Kubler 53, and St. George to start. Then I was snookered into buying Le Tourment Vert because of the cool bottle and clever paragraph description at BevMo only to find that it was nothing like the other stuff I had tried. I then, based upon some advice, placed an order for some imported bottles which I just recently received, one of which is the Jade PF1901, which I definitely like better than the brands available here. I also have bottles of Doubs and Roquette which I have yet to try (I'll be trying to decide which one this evening).

I look forward to learning more about absinthe and participating in some of the, uh, animated discussions I've read over here.

I enjoy golf, cars (a bimmerfreak to be exact), dabbling in bonsai, and of course, drinking.

So if you got this far I'll give you a fun fact as well, I live in a new housing development on the former Tustin Marine base, and nearby there are two unique historical structures.

They are the largest wooden structures in the world, hangars built in WW2 to house dirigibles. They are so large that the Statue of Liberty would fit standing up, and the Eiffel Tower would fit laying down. It's pretty cool to be able to see them in the distance and recognize the truly vast scale of them. They get leased out by the military periodically to various car companies to do commercials in and around them, as they wind up being kind of a "tough industrial" background for presenting a car.

Hey noob, there is nothing in your first post that I can bitch, gripe, complain about or put on airs of superiority. Say something controversial or stupid so I can get my groove on.

Now we see why you're called Doctor Love.

Ohhhhhhhh man, you had to bring Mom into it. Now I'm gonna hafta get medieval on your ass. Just kidding, I banged your Grandma last nite and it wasn't that good, kinda dry and lifeless. And if you say, "she's dead man, why'd you have to talk about my dead Grandma?" then I'll say she wasn't that good when she was alive neither so don't worry about I'm used to it. So there.


But at least your getting the hang of it a lot quicker than some of these other noobs.

Jebus, this talk about bangin' the dead is makin' me kinda nostalgic for CeeGee.

Of course, I'll won't admit that the next time he picks a bad day to quit sniffin' glue.
Wilson
If you're gonna do dead chicks, you gotta bring your own lube. They say they got some new stuff that warms on contact. That would probably be a big plus for you.

Somehow, necrophiliasm is not how I envisioned my intro thread would evolve.

Everyone gets there 15 minutes of fame.
Jaded Prole
or flame as the case may be.
OCvertDe
15 minutes of fame before the flame.
Absomphe
In your case, the two are synonymous.
Poke Salad Papa
That is the most gross thing I have heard here. I'm gonna get them bayou people to fix up a little something for you guys. Bat1.gif

Actually, in my case I believe 15 minutes of flame hardly begins to sum it up.
Absomphe
Damn you, you just upstaged that clock. shock.gif

Maybe if I'd stop setting myself on fire…

nah.

That's why you're new. This is how all the intro threads evolve. Or at least they used to. Then the joint got all classy-fied and the necrophilia moved over to the Lounge.

Speaking of uses for dead people, I didn't think I'd run across anything strange enough to be worthy of adding to this thread, until I read this…

Reduce, recycle, reuse, right? My guess is they like Jerry Garcia a lot….in fact they are probably…













deadheads?

Prolly a fan of Lord Byron.

FM 1960 and the Eastex freeway….I used to live just on the other side of the airport from there.
