Preferred By Lovecraft And Poe Fans?

Hey, it's no absinthe, but you've got to give the stuff points for style:Yep, it says "Curiosity Cola." Tastes pretty good, too. A bit spendy.

Hi friend, greeting peace...
How are you? I hope you’ll be happy.
If you willing visit my blog, and read my article at http://sosiologidakwah.blogspot.com
I have new post
And... if you love books, don’t forget to read The Holy Qur'an please...
The Holy Qur’an (112:1-4) had stated, that God is Allah, the One and Only. Allah is God, on whom all depend. Allah begets not, and nor begotten; and none is like Allah.

That cola wouldn't happen to be at Locally Grown, would it?

You bet, Charles. Where else?

Also: MUSLIM SPAMMER, BEGONE! I was a-gonna mark it spam, but hell, I'll leave it for now. D00d, you have reached a new level of cultural cluelessness. Also? I ain't readin' your collection of crazy-talk; the results (poverty, abuse, hunger, fear, ignorance, filth) speak for themselves. I'm female, armed and not inclined to be forgiving, understand?

Most of the Lovecraft fans sat alone at the bar across from the library and ordered double malt Scotch. The ones browsing, and chuckling over, Poe's comments on a critic preferred Cognac.

Personally, I prefer high octane corn squeezings, made my preacher friend Alvin Greene, but I would settle for a real Orange Crush.

I found Fentiman's Dandelion and Burdock soda at World Market. Deelish! But at $3.50 a bottle it's not for everyday guzzling.

And, I didn't think spam would be Halal...

Holy crap. So to speak.

Hmmm, I drink single malt scotch, can't stand Lovecraft. (Despite some enjoyable evenings spent playing Call of Cthulu...)

Don't drink cognac, or read Poe.

I do drink absinthe, however, although I have yet to find that it makes the heart grow any fonder, assuming that were possible.

Anyway, I think that Lovecraft's writings would discourage curiosity.

Dunsany, now...

It's "absence" that makes the heart grow fonder. "Absinthe" makes the head go yonder. Don't get 'em mixed up. ;)

I was amused (while eating BACON) that when some of my co-workers visited Italy, they were freaked out that would could buy absinthe. So, of course, they bought some, opened 'er up and took a big sip....

Funny, they had nothing good to say about it, and were quite, quite befuddled when I explained there were a few ways to drink it, none of which were "straight up."

Ignorance: it'll fuck you up. Also, you'll miss out on kewl stuff, like a thujone high. No Green Fairy for you!


I, too, have enjoyed Fentiman's Dandelion and Burdock, though at $3.50 per each @, you're payin' $0.56 American more per bottle than I do, and that includes any taxes. H'mm, they've got that flavor at Locally Grown Gardens, too. Or they did last time I checked.

(Fentiman's Shandy and their Dandelion and Burdock first showed up here at Kahn's, a liquor store. When they ran out, Tam and I asked after it. "Oh," they said, "That's all there'll be. We don't know where the first batch came from." Er, what?)

Curiosity Cola: tasty, but deadly to cats.


wv: baninen -- Curiosity Cola needs baninen. Do it for the kittens!

I can get you a recipe for a Sazerac cocktail, if you happen to have some absinthe sitting around.

I don't intend to indulge, myself; I'll just sip my Maker's and let others fry their brains :)
