...and I sure could use some. Horrible crash near my apt. in DC, no one called. Are you OK? Not one person I know. It's "my train." I'll take a tumbler, please.

Bye.

I've never tasted it, have you? I think of "Surviving Picasso" - one of the females (can't recall - Natasha McElhone's role, I think) was a partaker in a big way.

We were talking about Absinthe over the weekend, since I made those "Last Word" cocktails with Chartreuse, which is very similar.

I love the Absinthe fairy in the movie "Moulin Rouge", too!

Have never, ever seen that vanGogh (very clever of you to have found it). Doesn't look like absinthe is helping the girl in the Degas, however.

A very clever post title, Pup. And I love the pics.

my husband picked up a bottle when it became available in the US again. Of course, it doesn't have the wormwood oil or whatever it was that made it so lethal. I tried it. He prepared it for me with the burning sugar cube held over the glass on a slotted spoon. Didn't like it. I guess you can get high on anything no matter what the taste.

My late husband used to say:
"Absinthe makes the heart grow fondue."
(He was a funny guy.)

I'm not sure that the absinthe is always to blame. I'd have that expression on MY face if my partner looked like him! I think she's just fed-up!!!
