Dom, is Tanguy dead?


Yup. He dies quite often. He's actually much better than Jesus at that resurrection thing.

Tequila shots:


Has there ever been a moment in history where Tequila shots occurred, and then everything went quite well afterwards? Why Absinthe was banned but Tequila never has been is beyond my comprehension.

Finally home from the trip. Never wound up leaving Switzerland which turned out to be a very cool country. One highlight was in Geneva after the Italians beat France in the 2008 Euro Cup and proceeded to march down to Round de Rive and burn a French flag chanting in Italian, "Fuck the French, Fuck the French!!!" (Sorry Marc, but it was FUNNY, I have it on video!).

But on a more serious note, thanks to everyone for their coolness and generosity. All-in-all, it was a very positive experience. Great fun to finally put faces and attach personalities to all of the forum "characters" I've known for so long here.

Thanks for the vintage David, and for the bottle Stephano, for the cigarettes Helfrich, the BBQ - Matter-Luginbühl, and for the best beers I ever had, Dom!

I can't wait for the fall Abisinthiades!

Now I am going to go to a grocery store that has 800 types of vegetables which will be discarded in a few days, maybe grab a Starbucks burnt™ coffee and enjoy some air-conditioning and a Coors Light. wink.gif

One of the best questions I've heard asked.

I love those pictures of the countryside…'have to get there one of these days.
