    1. Gin is totally awesome.

    anyways, I ordered some gin drinks for SIG on friday and i think she liked them

    corpse reviver #2 and a kind of shitty martinez

    i had to tell the bartender how to mix both of them. I think she liked them.

    some other good gin drinks are the negroni and the aviation (or casino). Even the humble gin and tonic is about as good as you are going to get from a highball.

    I don't like martinis, myself.

    I especially don't care for super-dry martinis. It strikes me as a silly affectation

    Yes they were great drinks, the Corpse Reviver especially.

    A summary of my day at work today:

    I missed my train. At work I got up to reach for something, sat down awkwardly, and tore the seat of my trousers on the arm of the chair. On leaving the office to go in search of replacement trousers (I have a long coat), I was shat upon by a pigeon.

    You don't mix a quality whiskey, so there's nothing getting wasted.

    Rye whiskey is better than scotch and it also makes the best cocktails in the world.

    Are you saying for a Manhattan or in general? You could be right about the former, I've only mixed one myself, but the latter would make you a madman.

    In general. Rye > Scotch, and the sazerac 18 -- which can be purchased for only $50 if you get it retail, is the best whiskey in the world.

    Hmmm. HMMMMMMmmmmmmmm. I'll track some down, but I really doubt it's all that. I've never found a rye I could drink neat. Well, that I wanted to anyhow.

    Rye and ginger ale is a lovely summer drink however.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    doesn't "dry" refer to a certain composition of the fluid, like it's got less sugar or something

    i think that dry wine is supposed to make your mouth water, actually, which is great for when you're eating something savoury

    I once took a creative writing class that had a twice-weekly session meeting. It was totally bullshit. At one point, we took to playing Scrabble.

    Some dude called me on shat not being a word. I was dumbfounded. I mean, sure it may not fit in the Scrabble rubric, but I'll be damned if it's not a word.

    My defense - the past-tense of shit! He shat his pants, I said. No, no, he shitted his pants.

    What?

    Fucked if I know. This all occurred before lunch.

    After lunch was almost entirely occupied with explaining to a broker I dislike intensely why taking someone to court is more complicated than they think it is.

    What you guys call "rye" is probably what we called "blended canadian whiskey".

    American "rye" is something different and specific.

    I am not sure if it is easily available in England. It's not even particularly available in the US.
