Full Version: (Another) greeting from a lurker of olde!
The Fée Verte Absinthe Forum - The Oldest, Largest, Most Authoritative Absinthe Forum. > General > The Entrance Hall
Absinthe Ben
Hello, fellow absintheurs! As a lurker here for several years it's great to finally step out from the shadows. By this point, most of you probably already know me from somewhere, be it Myspace, Facebook, or WS, but it's always a pleasure to meet new faces as well! (envision "friendly wave" emoticon here)

It's teeth-chattering cold in the mitten state right now, and damn it all, I'm out of salt and the driveway is too slippery to run to the car so I can fetch some more. So, at present, I suppose you can call me "Hermit Ben".

I founded The Absinthe Review Network in 2007, which is a lot of work, but pfft!-I have no hobbies, so really it makes the time fly by. The reviews have a sarcastic edge to them, but that's just how I roll.

Interesting fact about me: …erm, I'll get back to you once I fabricate something that I could actually consider interesting.

Here's to many years of great conversation in FV! abs-cheers.gif



LeRoy has 47 Hours and 41 minutes before his house detonates.

My mother (from Michigan) and has called four times this week to bitch about the snow. In excruciating, agonizing detail. As if I don't recall anything about winter snow storms.

But Hiyah! I'm in the East Bay. It was 70 today. I cut the clover. I weeded the yard. I broke a sweat. We turned a fan on and opened the windows.

I only miss the snow at Christmas time.
Absinthe Ben
Weeded the grass? It's like we're living in different worlds! blink.gif

Quickly, tell your mother that if we combine our firewood, we may just make it through the night…

An introduction here does not entitle you to make suggestive advances on people's mothers. Maybe that's how it works on that other forum, but not here. We're growed-up, we don't ask the children to intercede.
Absinthe Ben
You are scolding me sarcastically, right?

Ever seen Don't Look In The Basement? this forum is like that but with Booze.

Wilkommen!

For real character assassination rather than gentle prods, you can always try the Lounge.

Yep, it's 20 below here.
Hopefully,my house is ok.
Good to see you here Ben!
Absomphe
You realize that if LeRoy's house actually detonates at the appointed time, we're turnin' you in, right? evill.gif

Welcome, Ben.

I'm pretty sure my Mom won't mind , Knowing Head, his either , fire away Ben! Welcome to the fray.
Head_prosthesis
Tibro, if you'd seen my mother in her bumble bee ice skating costume you'd understand. That's what I'm told anyway.
Tibro
So, she gets a lot of offers from guys who want to share wood to make it through the night? And you're alright with that?

I'll PM you for her number. I got wood.
Head_prosthesis
Yes! Please, take her. Yes!
Tibro
She still got the bumblebee outfit? I'll bet her honey is sweet sweet.
Head_prosthesis
Pretty sure she does have it and I wouldn't know about her honey*. It's her buzz and her sting that I can't handle too often.


*PERVERT!!!
Tibro
They're easily pacified with a little smoke. That's when you go for the sticky comb.
Absinthe Ben
Hey absinthist, good to see you again, pal! abs-cheers.gif

Ohhh yeah, I'm well aware of LL! Maybe one of these days…or not.

Thanks for the welcome, buddy! Well done Le Roy, Jigsaw has deactivated the time bomb, so no worries! abs-cheers.gif

And you can quote G&C on that!
Absinthe Ben
Hey everyone, and thanks for the warm welcome!

Sorry about the quoting mishap, I don't know why they quoted incorrectly as I've been doing it at WS without any trouble for a week now… blink.gif
Head_prosthesis
I'd fix it for you, but that might be overstepping my admin privilege and upset the herd.

Tibro
Fix me up with your Mom, Head, and I'll try to restrain myself from making a buzz about any other fixes you may create.

On second thought, I am incapable of self-restraint.
Absinthe Ben
Yes, I see it now, it was missing in LeRoy's original citation and then I quoted him. Naturally it's not going to fix itself, now is it?

I'm glad we could clear up this scandal before the mainstream media caught wind of it.:)
Head_prosthesis
The herd seemed ok with it. So I fixed it. You're all set.

I like to help.

Head_prosthesis
Ah yes, that old chestnut. I saw what "helping" people did for other absinthe forums and it just wasn't pretty. From now on it's back to my old porn mantra

I like to watch.


Head_prosthesis
And don't get any funny ideas about that, Tibro.
G&C
Too late, I'm sure.
Tibro
Whether you prefer to watch or meddle with the fixin's is serious bidness in my book. Nothin' funny about it. And as for what's "pretty" and what ain't, me one-eye don't pay no attention to that.
