For sure, my formal education let me down. Not until last night did I learn the screw part of a corkscrew is called a 'worm.'

what up Wes-T.
I hear you are our resident expert on absinthe. I also hear that it was just legalized.
Can you recommend a good real bottle that I could easily pick up here in the city? I’m dying to try this stuff .. I have tried the artificial green licorice variety last time I was in greece and was underwhelmed. Is there anything available with real wormwood .. actually hallucinogenic?

How’s the eyeball business? Sorry I missed you the other week. I trust Tull was excellent.
I spent 1 night in London in the late 90s drinking the The Green Fairy with a few friends and by the end of the night we had all made up new names for ourselves and I woke up in someone else’s shirt. Since then, I’ve been obsessed.
