Not a blogger questionnaire

Tamdhu vs. Famous Grouse vs. Highland Park:

Yikes! Highland Park has a strong smokey, peaty flavor with large quantities of iodine. Gnnnergaaargherargheraergh. Too much for me.
Famous Grouse is very well balanced. A bit of smoke, a bit of peat, a taste of iodine.
Tamdhu is so soft. Like regular Macallen, it’s a beginner’s scotch.

Rinse with spring water, try again.

Tamdhu: soft, easy drinking, subtle. A lovely finish.
Famous Grouse: what is this shit? It’s bitter, thin, nasty.
Highland Park: Crivens, it’s extreme. This is as much peat as I can ever handle.

Rinse with spring water, try again.

Famous Grouse: Mmmm, I can drink this just fine.
Highland Park: still a bit on the sharp side, but I can learn to like it.
Tamdhu: tasting kind of lite. Very easy on the mouth. No real highlights, no real strengths, but not an altogether thin flavor either.

Rinse with spring water, have a little bit to eat, rinse once more, try again.

Highland Park: I could learn to love this stuff. Yes indeed. Rather pricey, but it’s got the kind of body I can admire.
Famous Grouse: Good enough for regular drinking. Nothing special, but nothing wrong with it either. Solid but a bit thin.
Tamdhu: Och, a wee little nip for the ladies. It’s no a challenge, but it’s no great surprise either. Not bad, not dull, but not a taste that grows on you.

Huh? Wazzat? Whaddyamean, you’re not supposed to swallow each taste? Spit it out? Crivens ya daft scunner, that’s a crime!

On the stove: pork rib ends done in Szeged pork rub and Ceaser salad dressing. Slow cooked, damn I wish we were allowed actual barbecue grills in this condo park.

On the telly: Gladiator! Best Russell Crowe film evah! He da man. No, Daniel Craig is. No, Mark Harmon., No, Sean Connery. Ok, Sean da man, but the old man these days. Clint Eastwood at 50. Yeah baybay! Steve McQueen! At least he wasn’t a faggy little whiner like James Dean! (see why I love my wife? She likes manly men, not wussy little pretty boys. Especially when they run around with a goat’s ass growing out of their face, wearing a freakin rasta beret. Have you seen Brad Pitt lately? Holy shit.)

Strange things running through my head:

King John
Put up a notice,
“LOST or STOLEN or STRAYED!
JAMES JAMES MORRISON’S MOTHER
SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN MISLAID.
LAST SEEN
WANDERING VAGUELY:
QUITE OF HER OWN ACCORD,
SHE TRIED TO GET DOWN
TO THE END OF THE TOWN -
FORTY SHILLINGS REWARD!”

What, don’t you have random Pooh on occasion? I saw the doctor I work for this afternoon - a very rare thing - and he told me he was very happy with my work and that he knows I don’t overcharge him. When I got home, I told my wife about it. I said “I have been to see the Queen, and she says my hands are purfickly clean!” and she had no idea at all what I was talking about. So I said

They’re changing guard at Buckingham Palace -
Christopher Robin went down with Alice.
“Do you think the King knows all about me?”
“Sure to, dear, but it’s time for tea,”
Says Alice.

and she was all like, you’re strange. She must have had a deprived childhood. Probably thinks ol’ Winnie Ther is a Sears Roebuck product.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
