“On average this goal takes 2 years to complete”.
...Indeed, I can’t believe that this is still hanging around here :D I’ve had so many chances to mark this off, but no… I even had a bottle of it at home a few years ago, but I have no idea where/with whom it ended up.. Last year I almost got my hands on a set of silver spoons – it’s an almost since they looked a bit fake. Still, this goal is one of my big ‘why?’s. Why is it not done? At least I know where my priorities lie now. I can only hope it will not end as ‘well’ as my raw whiskey-tasting experience :D 2 weeks ago
Went to a fancy cocktail bar on a pub crawl with workmates (and my brother). While I spun the wheel and asked for something savoury with rum, one of the developers ordered a glass of absinthe. As he was happy to share with anyone who wanted a sip, I unexpectedly completed this.
It was minty green and creamy-looking, and smelled basically of black licorice. It tasted quite nice, too. Sweet and licoricey but complex, I suppose. I still intend to order myself a glass when I next get the chance, but for now I’m happy to have partaken in the way that I did. 9 months ago
I just want to see what the fuss is all about. Although K tells me that you can’t actually get the real stuff anymore because the technique no longer exists…or something…I’m still intrigued. 3 years ago
How I did it: I was one of the mature students in my Community Arts course.( Most of My colleagues were all a good bit younger than me)We were in Prague for our exchange fundraising trip.
Fast forward to a night on the tiles.......
Said colleagues thought it would be funny to see the old yin drunk, and bought me absinthe with lemonade, well
it only took 4 drinks.
My memory was fuzzy, but it is an experience i shall NEVER forget. my brain was functioning fine, It was my body it affected. I remeber being on my hands and knees crawling about the dance floor like an animal on all fours! hahahahaaha. i continued to look for my friends and visit the bouncer outside(still on all fours).
I sat on a toilet seat for what seemed like 2 houes unable to move, thankfully my friends came back periodically to check on me. Read how I did it… 13 months ago
never again hahaha 15 months ago
It Did not taste good, so I wasn’t able to drink enough to feel any effect. It made my husband really sick. I think the romance of it is much better than the actuality of the experience. 21 months ago
