I hope you don't think you upset me...I didn't think that's what you meant, but just in case...I like to think of myself as being the rear most part of a horse's anatomy.

It's sort of a point of pride. Very Happy
LOL! Naw, don't think like that!

And now, with the December solstice out of the way, and little more than a week (ON EDIT: actually, I guess it's just a week) left to earth's orbital perihelion, perhaps we will see a gradual resurgence of discussion and passionate argument.

I'm thinking about a new poll...perhaps something along the lines of "Scotch or Bourbon: Which is best for getting really monkey eyed after the gig?"

You can give it a whirl?

I admit I can drink vodka like it's water, but bourbon totally kicks my ass!

So....in avoidance of making a bigger ass of myself than I typically do day to day I choose not to drink at all anymore. Confused

I cannot say my wife drinks vodka like it's water, but only because she cannot tolerate water -- says that it is poisonous to her system. This helps to explain the fear I live with, and why I'm often found cowering behind my recliner with a jug of Old Crow in hand to steady my nerves as she stalks about the house wielding a stout cudgel whispering, "relax to my touch, you b@st@rd."

For years, I felt that Scotch, and to a lesser extent, rye, was the key to expanding my consciousness and to realize my full potential...but of late I have been rediscovering my roots through bottom shelf, budget priced Bourbon in mass quantities.

I suppose I could cut back a couple of bottles each week and put the savings toward something like Robert Conti's course to improve my guitar playing, but like Hunter Thompson, I find that sort of self imposed deprivation entirely too savage to bear.

Scotch, single-malt. Make it Lagavulin if you're buying...

I don't drink much, but when I do it's generally a hearty Cabernet.

I don't spend too much money on anything...no scotch for me.

I see.

Yes, well.

If it pleases the Court, I should like to refer to various statements made earlier by both defendants, laying claim to being guitar players, and yet they now contradict their own testimony by these new and outrageous statements.

Do they take the Court for fools?

They would make a mockery of the entire proceeding -- indeed -- the entire forum. Very Happy

My son brought this over today on his 24th birthday to share with his old man. He has a 25 year-old that he's saving for next year. Cool

Definitely made my top ten for beers.
