Further to the theme...

.. I've been sitting here thinking.. yeah, I know... a bad thing to do on a Sunday evening.. but, I think that this is a window to the soul, children... see, I've met a helluva lot of bloggers over the past year... and I've had drinks with most of them... Hell, on about half of the occasions, I was making the drinks for them...

... way back when I started this joint, Blackfive had a post up about people he'd like to have a drink with... I was honored enough to be on that short list.. alas, we haven't made that party happen yet.. but, I have a feeling it's coming...

... therefore, let me give you a few insights into the drinking habits of some bloggers (and spouses) that I've met... I've witnessed these gentle people consume these things with my very own eyes.... behold...

... dear Kelley.. Newcastle Brown Ale...
... wily Key Monroe... Bud Light...
... musical Mammamontezz... some kind of crazy blue stuff...
... intrepid Velocibride... a SWG-made Appletini..
... sweet Georgia.. the PBR Goddess...

... the Acidman... Kentucky bourbon right outta the bottle...
... barbin' Catfish.. ditto..
... Velociman... dry Martini...
... Jim o'Rest Stop.. anything and everything that was handed to him...
... Dax Montana... Georgia's finest Apple Brandy...
... Grouchy Old Cripple.. Vodka... neat...
... Geoffrey and Gordon... whoever's beer they could grab..
... Zonker... damn, Thunderboy... I can't recall what you were drinking...
... Evil White Guy.. cold beer & more cold beer...
... Single Southern Guy... Rum and Coke..
... Closet Extremist... Very Old Bartlett's Barton's... a man of taste...
... Big Stupid Tommy.... Sam Adams on tap...

.. now, if I let my imagination wander a bit... I can almost see it... yes... my crystal ball is broken, you see... but the image is becoming clear in my scotch glass... when I meet these bloggers, they'll be ordering... hmmm....

... Harvey... flaming jello shots...
... Matty O'Blackfive... 16 year old Lagavulin... neat...
... feisty Christina... spanish rioja...
... mindbending Queenie.. red wine & a STEAK...
... DramaQueen... a double Silk Panties...
... mirthful Sadie... a Cosmopolitain... with a twist, of course..
... Mia... a mimosa... with umbrella...
... my other Mia... a Shirley Temple... with a shot of vodka on the side..
... The Redneck... Glenmorangie and water... and liking it...
... Sandy from The Dirty Ashtray... six Miller Genuine Drafts...
... UptownGirl... a Cherry Martini...
... The Bitterman... a Corona... no lime..
... Teresa.. a shot of Jose Cuervo...
... The Wandering Hillbilly... 25 year old cask-strength Macallan...
... Divine Innerbitchin.... a Rhett Butler
... Jack... a double Aberlour...
... and Boudicca... she'll spoil herself.. with Champagne...

... dammit... my scotch glass just went dark... there shall be no more sooth tonight, children... besides, I need a refill....

... hey, no one ever said that my crystal ball scotch glass was perfect at predicting the future... I may never meet some of you guys... but, if I do... I'll bet my prediction was right....

Bullshit So Far

Okay, Karnak, fill me in.

What the hell is a Rhett Butler?

Bullshitted by jmflynny on January 2, 2005 06:04 PM

Oh yeah...you pegged me just right. Cosmos are most excellent;-)

Bullshitted by miss sadie on January 2, 2005 06:06 PM

..thanks, Sadie... my scotch glass does not lie....

... Ms. Flynny... a Rhett Butler is as follows..

1 shot of Southern Comfort..
1 tbsp of lime juice...
1 tsp of lemon juice.
1 tsp of triple sec..
1/2 tsp of powdered sugar..

... shake the ingredients with ice, and strain into a chilled glass over ice cubes... garnish with a cherry, if you so desire...

Bullshitted by Eric on January 2, 2005 06:14 PM

Er, on second thought...any scotch left in that bottle of yours?

Perhaps, a Sean Connery instead? I'm sure you can create a drink around him.

Bullshitted by jmflynny on January 2, 2005 06:23 PM

.. heh hehh.... oh yeah... after all, a bartender must ensure the patrons are happy... what'll you have, Flynny?...

.. one Sean Connery..

3 shots of Bowmore single malt Scotch..
5 crushed ice cubes..
stir..

.. serve in an Edinburgh crystal tumbler...

Bullshitted by Eric on January 2, 2005 06:28 PM

That's the stuff!

Bullshitted by jmflynny on January 2, 2005 06:32 PM

Small correction my man. It's Very Old Barton. :^) That Sean Connery looks intrigueing as well.

Bullshitted by Johnny - Oh on January 2, 2005 06:41 PM

The Gulf Coast vintage bitterman would have no argument over a cold Corona. Still would not kick it off the bar if someone else is buying. Especially if the bar is in Rosarita Beach or Cabo.

However if the bitterman is buying:

Maker's Mark and a tad bit of water over ice.

Beer nights call for local microbrews when available, but I am partial to Abita Springs Brewery beers when I can get them, and that is not very often.

Bullshitted by bitterman on January 2, 2005 06:47 PM

Almost forgot.

Rum. The bitterman loves rum. Meyers neat. Pusser's Navy Rum with a bit of soda. Cockspur and a tad bit of pineapple. Mount Gay right out of the bottle, only after a case and a half of Miller Light after a sailboat regatta, however.

Oh hell. I guess I am right in there with Jim of PRS. Just serve it up. I'll probably drink it.

Bullshitted by bitterman on January 2, 2005 06:51 PM

What, Bitterman?

No Cabana Boy?

Bullshitted by jmflynny on January 2, 2005 06:56 PM

Can't go wrong with MGD but oh honey this German stuff I've been drinking since moving back overseas..afraid MGD might taste like water to me after all this HefeWeizen :)

Bullshitted by Sandy on January 2, 2005 07:20 PM

I'll take another of those dry martinis. And another.

Bullshitted by Velociman on January 2, 2005 07:20 PM

Make that two, kind sir.

Thanks, Eric.

Bullshitted by Christina on January 2, 2005 07:35 PM

*ahem*

Bullshitted by LeeAnn on January 2, 2005 07:58 PM

.. damn, LeeAnn-baby... I am so sorry... I blame the liquor... forgive?...

Bullshitted by Eric on January 2, 2005 08:02 PM

Mr. Adams has come through on many an occasion for me....a buddy just gave me a jug of a nice nut brown ale from Blackstone for the Christmas...the rough part was finding a spare moment to enjoy it before it went flat....

Bullshitted by BSTommy on January 2, 2005 08:20 PM

Oh you will be ever so disappointed if you meet me. I only drink water... out of the tap. I'm a boring girl. ;-)

Bullshitted by Boudicca on January 2, 2005 09:21 PM

.. Bou.. if I see you in Florida, we're drinking champagne...

Bullshitted by Eric on January 2, 2005 09:32 PM

Did somebody say *Cabana Boy*?

Bullshitted by Miss Sadie on January 2, 2005 09:59 PM

Of course I forgive :)
Besides, I kind of doubt that a Churchill martini would be the first thing pops to mind when you think of cheese.

Bullshitted by LeeAnn on January 2, 2005 10:43 PM

I'll have one of each, please.

Bullshitted by Jim - PRS on January 2, 2005 11:06 PM

Well, I actually do not drink, but if you show up in Florida, with YOU I will drink Champagne. ;-)

Bullshitted by Boudicca on January 2, 2005 11:17 PM

Guinness, man. I was drinking Guinness. Of course once we got back to the hotel I pretty much stopped. I'd had waaaay too much HefeWeizen and schnapps the night before. I did like that apple wine though. That was some REALLY good stuff.

Bullshitted by zonker on January 3, 2005 12:25 AM

Red Headed Sluts...All Around! Just Damn!

Bullshitted by Dax Montana on January 3, 2005 04:33 AM

Okay I'm late... again! But Oh MY I saw Jose Cuervo next to my name! Well, maybe if it's mixed with something - I like frou-frou drinks... I know, sad but true. And like Bou - I mostly drink water... an even sadder but true thing. However, I've had LOTS of practice over the years of being the sole non-imbiber of the party. I'm very good at it. *grin*

Bullshitted by Teresa on January 3, 2005 10:05 AM

Eric,
The Glenmorangie is "still on the list", but I will get 'round to it. I found over the last few days, that I appear to have a sweet tooth for "The Glenlivet". The JW Green that my buddy shipped me for Christmas, uh, whooped my ass...

And, I too despise it when the glass goes dark...

Bullshitted by RedNeck on January 3, 2005 12:02 PM

Well, flaming jello body shots... :-)

Bullshitted by Harvey on January 3, 2005 01:17 PM

Yes...twas I, who mentioned the Cabana Boy.

By the way, Sadie, they have one of the funniest freaking sites out there.

You must try the 'Dress the Cabana Boy' button.

Bullshitted by jmflynny on January 3, 2005 09:24 PM

oops..

.. Jesus, Flynny... thou shalt not provoke the Cabana Boy.... we'll all pay before this is over..

Bullshitted by Eric on January 3, 2005 09:40 PM

Have beer, will travel...
