Is it bad, that it is only 12:20 pm and all I can think about here at work is going home at 4:30 to have a glass of BT? I'm not an alcoholic, but since I obtained my bottle, I've been excited to go home and drink it! :grin:

Happens to me all the time. There have been days when I haven't even finished breakfast and I'm already mapping out what I'm going to drink that night. Sick, innit?:grin:

Another guilty pleasure - smelling last night's bourbon glass after it's set out all night. The alcohol has evaporated leaving only bourbony goodness. Many times I'll have the last bourbon in a coffee cup, and have my morning's coffee in the same cup. You can just get a hint of bourbon flavor, with no alcohol. Makes a great eye opener. :bigeyes:

I've often thought that. But then I'd be drinking bourbon with a straw rather than in a Glencairn glass.:lol:

Great idea! I'll have to try that to start my day on the right foot.

Brian, I think you are in the beginning stages of Whiskirexia Nervosa. For any of you newer members, this has been discussed extensively in this thread. http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=11206

Don't know if this falls in the same category or not, but as i'm sitting here, drinking my a glass of Buffalo Trace, I notice that there is a nat floating in my drink. This angers me on just 1 level. Not that it just ruined about 1/2 oz of the good stuff. Nope, I just picked it out and finished it like a man, but that I must have nats in the house. I must find the location of which this disgusting creature originated from and destroy the source. Maybe from a fallen cookie or marshmallow that my daughter has lost. After I log off here, I will be looking behind and under furniture. DAMN IT! :hot:

A little protein with your bourbon never hurt anyone :rolleyes:

You think you're having problems working because of bourbon on the brain....18 days; just 18 long dry days to go!

The colder the weather gets here in Indiana the more and more I find myself daydreaming about being on the couch in the evening after getting off work, starting a fire in the fire place, curled up with the Mrs on the couch (she grading papers, me reading for work), sipping on a good bourbon.

Today, my first day back at work after Thanksgiving, it was 2pm and cloudy, spitting sleet/snow from the sky... feels like the pefect entrance into December as November leaves us tonight.

Is this thread a case example of great minds think alike? I'd like to ponder this a while but I have a dozen coffee cups that need to be soaked in bourbon before morning. Peace out.....

Don - I'm not sure the shakes are normal but the cure would be a healthy pour of 70's era Yellowstone! :drinking:

If you're in a job, community, or relationship where you can't take a drink at 9:00 AM, then you might want to consider some changes.

Well I have plenty of 70's Yellowstone and a supportive job, community and relationship, so the voices can SHUT THE HELL UP.......Who said that?

I have put bourbon in my wife's simmering pot that she uses for room freshener. Makes the whole house smell like bourbon and it's tells me to go get a pour. Is this a problem???

Hers is is made or ceramic and you insert a candle through a window in the bottom and put the wax on top. I assume this design will serve the same purpose as the electric one your speak of.

I hate those damn things. Scented candles, too. I never understood why women think the way to freshen the air is to gag everyone with noxious perfumie candles.

It looks like you have figured a way to kill two birds with one stone.

My sister-in-law has literally driven me out of their house with those damned things. The last time I visited my brother there was such an overwhelming scent of vanilla in the air that I thought I was going to puke. WTF--just open a window if you need fresh air!

I completely agree. Fortunately looks like this may work in my favor. The wife won't know what hit her.

You come home from work, open the door and the smell of bourbon greets you with a smile. You kiss the wife hello, pour a glass of the good stuff and sit down with a cigar. The wife brings you a plate of bacon and bbq pulled pork. Wow.

Is this weird?

I keep a 50ml sample of out of production bottlings, rare bottlings or ones I really enjoyed. I label them with all the bottle info, including bar code numbers. I buy McCormick's vodka 50ml just for this purpose. Great, cheap bottles with secure caps and the bloody mary's ain't half bad either.

My name is Don and I think I may have a problem!

That's exactly the reason I took up farting. The little woman wants to argue it's not the same. A bourbon fumery and the ocassional earschplittenloudenboomer, now that ambiance. :grin:

Think about it: Mark Twain was a bourbon drinker. H.L. Mencken was a bourbon drinker. 'Tennessee' Williams was bourbon drinker. Ditto, Williams Faulker. Walker Percy wrote a famed essay about bourbon.
Is this weird coincidence? I think not!:pope:
But, in the inimitable words of Noah "Soggy" Sweat:
"...But if, when you say whiskey, you mean the oil of conversation, the philosophic wine, the ale that is consumed when good fellows get together, that puts a song in their hearts and laughter on their lips and the warm glow of contentment in their eyes; if you mean Christmas cheer; if you mean the stimulating drink that puts the spring in the old gentleman's step on a frosty, crispy morning; if you mean the drink which enables a man to magnify his joy and his happiness and to forget, if only for a little while, life's great tragedies and heartaches and sorrows; if you mean that drink the sale of which pours into our treasuries untold millions of dollars which are used to provide tender care for our little crippled children, our blind, our deaf, our pitiful aged and infirm, to build highways and hospitals and schools - then certainly I am for it..." (Read the whole thing here: http://www.rdrop.com/users/jimka/whisky.html),
then, well, you're about normal.:skep:

Ah yes, the wisdom of Judge Sweat. I only knew him socially but know lawyers who knew him intimately. The guy was a legend in his own time.

That's very cool that you knew him at all. The speech is just a wonderful piece. Did you ever see him deliver it? I guess he did so from time to time, once even on "The Tonight Show."

Regrettably no, Chuck, I didn't. The first person stories I did hear were more about his skill as a raconteur. Apparently his wit and intelligence would shine even when speaking impromptu.
