The horse is kicking up dust, but it doesn't seem to be locomotive... Kind of looks like it's blasting off.

Awesome.

Good INTRO TO ALCOHOL drinks are hard cider, chardonnay, white zinfandel, daquiris, italian surfers, red-headed sluts, grasshoppers, and curiously Long Island Iced Teas if they're mixed right. The latter is actually extremely alcoholic but is hard to taste the liquor inside.

wine coolers with a shot of whiskey added in was my fav back in the day

Hay guys, here's a fun story from my Sunday.

I was working at Goodwill and I took a scheduled break. Sitting at the break table I noticed a porcelain statuette of a man in a tuxedo and fez atop a base that said "Proud to be a Shriner". It was definitely pretty old, I'd say early 70s at the very latest, so I thought I'd examine it to see if I could derive any CONTEXT CLUES to help people sell it for a good price.

The thing was heavier than it looked (I assumed it was hallow) and the weight shifted as if laden with liquid. The bottom had labels associating it with some Bourbon distillery that I've heard of but never paid attention to since I've never actually seen it for sale (McCormick's, maybe?).

"Really?", I asked myself. Then I rotated his fez, which at first appeared to be integrally fixed, until it popped off and revealed a moist cork stopper. I smelled the stopper and then asked myself, "Really?". It smelled wonderful. A few moments of trepidation followed, then I took a swig from the porcelain Shriner. What I drank was definitely Bourbon of pretty outstanding quality--wonderful flavor, perfect smoothness.

It was really wonderful, and I think drinking on the job from vintage collectibles donated to charity is in itself pretty awesome.

oh man on the topic of way-too-alcoholic-yet-still-great drinks, a correctly prepared Zombie goes down smooth as all get out

do you get to call dibs on the really good donated stuff or anything like that, it sounds like a real treasure :(

Sethomas Aug 18th, 2008 05:52 AM

No, actually, there's such a bad image to that idea that they made it corporate policy to dick over employees on buying things. Whatever an employee buys has to be on the available for the public to buy for at least three hours.

Re: shriners, a flatmate was looking at the fez that I bought in Tangier and asked me, "hey, what are the guys who wear these called again?" I told him "Moroccans".

Re: Vintage shriner bourbon whiskey, it's delicious.

That sounds very much like an antique wooden statue of some unidentified saint that I was given when my great-grandmother died. I accidentally hit a latch on the side and the front swung open, revealing a perfect place to store a midsize bottle of alcohol.

(she did enjoy her vodka)

I wonder how many minor works of art conceal liquor.

Sethomas Aug 18th, 2008 08:09 AM

Why is your signature an anagram of mine?

I find this charming yet confusing!

Dixie Aug 18th, 2008 08:22 AM

I'm learning to walk with crutches after a particularly brutal Saturday night.
Somehow my knee popped twice and I collapsed. Unable to regain my strength, a good friend has lent me her crutches and a great little device called a CryoCuff. I love the CryoCuff.

Dixie Aug 18th, 2008 03:20 PM

Thank you.
The last knee injury I had was back in middle school so I guess it was about time.
Meanwhile I had to promise my husband I wouldn't throw people over my shoulder anymore because of this.
There goes my dream of being a wrestler.
:(

Wrestlers wear tight leotards though.

Dixie Aug 18th, 2008 03:33 PM

I already wear lycra and spandex pants.
I was 1/3 the way there.

Several girls gasped this morning when I equated homosexuality to a fetish.

I think it's 'cause I said "fetish"

I was just entertaining myself by seeing how long it took for you to notice or acknowledge it, heh.

I was kidding, of course! I know that the only way to get a woman to do anything is to punch her full in the face.
