I got some cool recipes. The number one tool you need to make lots of dope cocktails at home is a citrus press. Never use lemon or lime juice from the bottle. Fresh squeezed makes all the difference.


Yep, IMO fresh is the only way to go.

This is the one I have, though I'm certainly open to suggestions if there are better ones.

I'm slowly building up the bar and working my way through this guy's recipe page, mostly the classics and variations at this point, but I'm always open to new ideas and generally lean more towards whiskey based drinks.

Edit, I'll take a pic of my bar and attempt to post it.

It's not stressful Kane. You just have to fall into a different lifestyle. Having the kid wrap him/herself around your legs every day like a human bolo when you walk in the door actually drains all the shit away, rather than adding to it. It's an upgrade.


Is that what you tell yourself?

You ever watch alone in the wilderness - PBS showed it during some of their fundraisers? Wish they'd put the DVDs to streaming because I'd buy them.

Never seen it, but that was enjoyable.


Both of these were amazing - thanks to both of you.

Go have a kid or two, that'll keep your "free time" occupied.


:))

And add more stress to my life/relationship? No thanks. Enjoy bud! :-bd ;)


Between kids and work, I'm only allowed about one hour of Trump rage per day, which is about all I need.

It's the truth. I get where you're coming from. I would never have believed me either. You just have to live it I guess.

Then again, to each their own. Some people freak out and kill their kids/spouse. *shrug*.

For the kids sake I think they need at least one sibling. Honestly thought 1989-2011 was pretty much a blur for me. I'm actually looking forward to grandkids more than kids but the kids aren't cooperating.

Don't have kids. The Voluntary Human Extinction movement is probably the single most rational political ideology in our society today, and all you have to do to be a part of it is not have kids.

Why is this? Why do people say having a sibling is good?

Because only children turn out a little odd, like homeschooled children only worse.

More serious though, one needs a family/peer growing up to hone one's competitiveness, learning to deal with aggravation and hopefully having at least one person in life that has been through it all with you. Bonus if you become close.
