(Fark)   Booze and Books... Subette's BF just made her early Christmas merry. She got Jim Butcher's "Cold Days", a bottle of Baileys, and a bottle of Amontillado. What gifts has your serioso done that shows he/she's a keeper?   (fark.com) divider line 30

If he tells you that in the basement, there's a whole cask of Amontillado, DON'T GO.

/Yes, for the love of God!

My 34 year old wife still celebrates St. Nicholas Day. I found a bottle of Lagavulin 12 year in my shoe this year. All she got was a book. She was still very happy and immediately started reading.

/Still waiting to open the bottle.

She's given me 27 years.

A BJ and an ounce of fine weed.

And that's it and that's the only thing I need, is this. I don't need this or this. Just this ashtray. And this paddle game, the ashtray and the paddle game and that's all I need. And this remote control. The ashtray, the paddle game, and the remote control, and that's all I need. And these matches. The ashtray, and these matches, and the remote control and the paddle ball. And this lamp. The ashtray, this paddle game and the remote control and the lamp and that's all I need. And that's all I need too. I don't need one other thing, not one - I need this. The paddle game, and the chair, and the remote control, and the matches, for sure. And this. And that's all I need. The ashtray, the remote control, the paddle game, this magazine and the chair.

Here's my mine WASN'T a 'keeper':


My very recent 'ex' gave me a fake 'Dremel' rotary tool - a 'Wen', to be exact; never heard of the company.

Something she bought 2 years ago for C'mas and forgot to give me then OR last year.

She works in a Big Box Store and could have gotten a decent discount on the real thing.

'Ex' you might say and 'Why?' you might ask.

Well, becoming a Jehovah's Witness while putting her then 16 yr old daughter on the Pill so said daughter can fark her 19 year old bf while simultaneously reducing our 'alone time' to starvation levels had something to do it.

Yeah, TMI, but big deal.

One of the most recent things that told me my wife was a keeper was when she refused to leave my side when I was laid up in a hospital fighting an infection that had crushed my right lung almost completely, then ignored my protests while waiting on me hand and foot for the first few weeks of recovery, and ignoring my protests since in her efforts to keep me taking my iron supplements and getting enough sleep to facilitate my total recovery from death's doorstep.

For better or for worse, in sickness and in health. It's what we promised each other, and we've kept that promise to each other, while sadly witnessing others not able to keep that promise.

Subette here - he knows that's my favorite Poe story. That story introduced me into trying (and loving) Amontillado.

Anyone here see this adaptation of it? Link.

For starters, she has refrained from calling me her "serioso". She has also refrained from going online to brag about what she has done for me in order to feel good about herself. (She is pretty self-confident that way.) And finally, I don't know what she bought me for Christmas yet because it isn't Christmas yet. She did buy me a Nikon 3Dx 2 weeks ago "just because" though.

To subby:

Having read that book, be prepared to be underwhelmed. Butcher needs to start resolving things in his Dresden universe instead of continually adding impossible odds and trying to heighten the suspense and dire consequences with every other book.

Thanks for the warning.

Subby try this sometime (and the rest of you Farkers should too). Buy yourself a mini bottle of Bailey's, Cask & Cream, Carolans and one or two other Irish creams that your local liquor purveyor has on hand. Have somebody else do the pouring and do a blind taste test. I'll bet you Bailey's isn't the winner, not even second.

/done this a couple of times
//results are consistent but I'm not going to post spoilers

Whether she decided to give her daughter birth control is really none of your business but becoming a Jehovah's Witness is unforgivable

ModernPrimitive01: Whether she decided to give her daughter birth control is really none of your business but becoming a Jehovah's Witness is unforgivable


Actually, it WAS my business because the ex was pressuring me to be a surragate(sp) father.

And yeah, the JW nonsense was just bullshiate.

Does she get bricked up in the catacombs?

Oh, I'll admit, I'd probably enjoy them all, but the BF knows what Bailey's is, so that is what he buys. I was more pleased with the Amontillado because I have a hard time finding it at the LCBO (not all of them carry it up here).

We're in a 5th floor apartment, no place to really wall me up in (though maybe in the walk-in closet...)

Am I the only one, that wants to listen to the Allen Parsons Project now.


Down in the dark,
In a vault down below,
I have a cask,
Of Amantillado.

They have a song, which covers just about anything you deal with in life, but unless "Eye in the Sky" is about hover crafts, I do not think so.

Well, my sweetie has been putting up with me for seven years, and we can *still* make each other all crazy. Also she's been letting me invest in setting up a one barrel nano-brewery, to try to get into the brewing business. And she loves me even when she's threatening to bury my obnoxious self out in the back garden...Oh, hell, I love my sweet girl so much! I like to get her days at Habitude, a local dayspa where she can get spoiled...Oh, and Alan Parsons Edgar Alan Poe record is pretty damned good!

My husband felt bad that all I got from doing the Powell's gift exchange on LibraryThing at the $50 level were two paperbacks, so he's out buying me a book now.

/The Big Sleep and The Silver Pigs
//they looks good, but at $25 a pop it was a let down
