I even tried to pretend it was because it was "something the kids and I could do together". Best decision I ever made was to throw out the Nintendo and break and uninstall the PC RPGs. I'm glad I figured this out way back when Nintendo was young and King's Quests was only up to 3. I would be doomed if I ever started an online RPG, thank goodness they weren't available back then.

    But I'm sure not stupid enough to get addicted to Wikipedia.

    This post was a roller coaster of emotions. Thank you.

    I am a recovering marijuana and anti-inflammatory and pain killer user. Though I have been sober for a few years now, I will never stop being an addict. These days, I avoid any type of situation where I may feel like I may be around both excessive levels of alcohol AND drugs. As far as pain killers go, I have relied on counseling of various types to stay away from them. I do a lot of meditating and get tangerine flavored Altoids mailed to whatever country I may be in.

    Define "good scotch." I'm curious considering it came right after "Coors Beer."

    When on a budget during Obama's economy, Chivas Regal.

    If the Republicans don't take back the Senate, it's likely I will have to dumb down to Cutty Sark.

    Nothing against those scotches, but that's why I asked. My thing is for Islay single malts (Lagavulin, Ardbeg, Laphroaig) and don't really spend the cash on anything else, liquor-wise. They tend to be pricey, so only for special occasions anymore.

    Story I like to tell: We polished off a bottle of the 16-yr Lagavulin at my wedding and my 19-year old (at the time) sister came to the dance floor with a red plastic cup of something-and-coke and instantly I knew something was up... her whatever-and-coke smelled like a newly treated leather saddle. I knew right away she had mixed my 16-yr Islay single malt with Coca-Cola. To this day I give her hell for it. Though I guess if there was ever a time to mix the world's best scotch with a soft drink, it'd have been that night.

    Sometimes I think I am, but then I go a couple weeks without, and theres no craving or withdrawals, so I guess not.
