    Missed out on the pizza and beer last night! Sounded great! Maybe next time. Around that time, it was cocktail hour at the hospital! I had my 2nd treatment which was supposed to be at 2:00 p.m. but my onc. was late and at 5:00 p.m. I was enjoying a 'CAMPARI' cocktail - THE RED ARMY!!
    Ah, maybe next time I can join you for pizza and beer!

    You make me laugh Sonja, I called my Red Army many things, but never thought of it as campari!!! You do, what you have to do -- and since it was cocktail hour when you were FINALLY getting your tx (I'm so sorry you had to wait so long -- it is so frustrating...being patient is one thing but having to wait like that makes you want to scream!), I think the campari idea is delightful! Next time there's pizza & beer we'll call ahead!!

    Downtown in my much younger days was 'PARTY TIME' - HAPPY HOUR everyday at 5:00 p.m.!! But for many, many years now, no more - find it too much of a hassle to go downtown, traffic and all! I guess not working downtown doesn't help. My age too!?! Rather go out for din-dins at friends homes or most of the time, I cook here for them!

    COOKING was/is my stress relief..... When I'd get home from work and stressed right out, the family knew... they'd hear the pots and pans playing their music! Well, it was and still is music to MY EARS! Oh.... and nothing like a good GLASS of WINE or TWO while preparing a delicious meal - mostly into Italian, French or Oz wines, like them dry and coarse, don't know too, too much about U.S wines and I ashamed to say Canadian wines (?!) , but willing and able to learn with help from you lovely ladies!!

    And the BEER Connaisseurs - I am passé, still doing the Bud/Molson trip. Do the Corona/Lime once in awhile!

    OMG, it's only 6:00 a.m. and already boozing it up!!

    ANY IDEAS LADIES - craving for steak, with a good marinating recipe and steak sauce? And could you suggest a bottle or two or.... of wine to drink with - will send someone on a wine run for me?!

    While I'm at it - I'm inviting you all to the BBQ tonight 5:00 p.m. for cocktails and 6:00 p.m. for din-dins!!

    Sonja,

    I'm new at this wine combining myself. What goes well with what. I found that an Aussie shiraz goes great with a rack of lamb dish. That's about all I have so far.

    This is what happens when you don't sleep after treatment Sonja!! If I hit the Guildwood GO station for the 11:00 a.m. Via, I can be in Montreal in time for cocktails. I'll bring the wine!!

    Perhaps you, me and Sierra could hit downtown Montreal when we're all in shape to do that. Personally, I prefer Old Montreal for a meal..so many great places down there. But I do love the bars on Crescent St!! It's been way too long since I've been there.

    Canadian red? Try Jackson-Triggs Cabernet Sauvignon. If you like Chardonnay, Inniskellin has a very nice one in the "reserve". And Cave Springs does some nice whites if you like a Riesling. And that is it for me with Canadian wine -- I do the VQA ones but other than that? No, sorry. If you like Oz, have you tried Little Penguin? Wolf Blass is fabulous, but some of the others are just as nice.

    I like Canadian for beer, but Keith's would be my first choice. Corona w/lime for tex-mex and Stella when I'm feeling really "special". W/end w/the girls coming up next weekend, wonder how that will be...we usually go w/themes and try new things.

    What's for dinner Sonja?!?

    OMG Marla you crack me up!!! That's the best compliment I've had in a LONG time!!
    I always think, what do people think when they see this thread on the Main Forum and the posting is like 9:00 a.m.!?!? One of my mother's favourite expressions when she was in a good mood, or on vacation was "well, it's noon somewhere in the world!". I feel better on the days when Rosemary has been on before me at like 6:00 or 7:00 a.m.!!

    I haven't had a Long Island Iced Tea in AGES...that was my sister's favourite drink. And they do slide down nicely.

    At the mo' your sista is sippin a coffee...and I'm still laughing!!

    SHEL!!!! You're home and you're online!!!
    I had my 2 Coors Lite -- but gave one to my son -- and we said "way to go Shel!"
    You definitely don't need alcohol if you have percocet!!

    Take care of yourself you sweetie...and get better soon. I am waiting, oh so patiently (the thing I don't do well at all!!) to hear about you and your "Samantha" stories when you've recuperated!!!

    For you wine drinkers:

    A gentleman asked a waiter to take a bottle of Merlot to an attractive woman.

    The waiter took the Merlot to the woman and said, "This is from the gentleman seated over there," indicating the sender.

    She regarded the wine coolly for a second, not looking at the man, and decided to send a reply note to the man. The waiter, who was lingering for a response, took the note from her and conveyed it to the gentleman.


    The note read:

    "For me to accept this bottle, you need to have a Mercedes in your garage, a million dollars in the bank, and 7 inches in your pants."

    After reading the note, the man decided to compose one of his own in return.
    He folded the note, handed it to the waiter and instructed him to return this to the woman.

    It read:

    "For your information, I have a Ferrari Maranello, a BMW Z8, a Mercedes CL600 and a Porsche Turbo in my garage. There is over twenty million dollars in my bank account. But, not even for a woman as beautiful as you, would I cut three inches off. Just send the bottle back."

    For you beer drinkers:

    Subject: Baptist Cowgirl!!
    >
    >
    >A cowgirl, who is visiting Texas from Arkansas, walks into a bar and orders
    >three mugs of Bud. She sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn.
    >When she finishes them, she comes back to the bar and orders three more.
    >
    >The bartender approaches and tells the cowgirl, "You know, a mug goes flat
    after I draw it. It would taste better if you bought one at a time."
    >
    >The cowgirl replies, "Well, you see, I have two sisters. One is in Australia
    >, the other is in Dublin . When we all left our home in Arkansas , we promised that we'd drink this way
    >to remember the days when we drank together. So I'm drinking one beer for
    each of my sisters and one for myself."

    The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it there.

    The cowgirl becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way. She orders three mugs
    and drinks them in turn.

    One day, she comes in and only orders two mugs. All the regulars take notice
    and fall silent.When she comes back to the bar for the second round, the
    bartender says, "I don't want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences
    >on your loss."

    The cowgirl looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns in her eyes
    and she laughs.

    "Oh, no, everybody's just fine," she explains," It's just that my husband
    >and I joined the Baptist Church and I had to quit drinking.
    >
    >"Hasn't affected my sisters though!"

    And one for drinking in general:

    Of course this does not apply to you and me, but you may
    want to pass this on to other people to warn them.

    Liquor manufacturers accepted the Government's
    suggestion that the following warning labels be placed
    on all varieties of alcohol containers:

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may leave you

    wondering what the hell happened to your bra and

    panties.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may make you think

    you are whispering when you are not.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    WARNING: The consumption of alcohol is a major factor in

    dancing like a retard.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may cause you to

    tell your friends over and over again that you love

    them.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may cause you to

    think you can sing.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may lead you to

    believe that ex-lovers are dying for you to telephone

    them at four in the morning.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may make you think

    you can logically converse with members of the opposite

    sex without spitting.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may create the

    illusion that you are tougher, smarter, faster and

    better looking than most people.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may lead you to

    think people are laughing WITH you.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may cause pregnancy.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may be a major

    factor in getting your ass kicked.

    One last one on wine:

    Water and Wine Education



    WATER...... It has been scientifically proven that if we

    drink 1 liter of water each day, at the end of the year we would have

    absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli bacteria found in

    feces, in other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poop!



    However, we do not run that risk when drinking wine (or rum,

    whiskey, vodka, beer or other liquors) because alcohol has to go

    through a distillation process of boiling, filtering and fermenting.



    WATER = Poop



    WINE = HEALTH



    Free yourself of Poop, drink WINE!!! It is better to drink

    wine and talk shit than to drink water and be full of shit.



    There is no need to thank me for this valuable information, I

    am doing it as a public service.

    Holy Cow - I just left the Debate It forum and I am stunned. Yowza - I am staying here where I can muddle in my sillyness and not offend. I just can't get that worked up over things anymore - so here's to you, ladies!

    I guess I am having a sentimental moment - I am just glad we have this thread of ridiculousness and fun. Thanks! Oh- and CHEERS!

    Why beer is better than men:

    You can have more than one beer at a time.

    You can get the size beer you want, even a long neck.

    A beer won't give you whisker burns.

    You can suck on one beer all night long if you want.

    A beer doesn't have to be hard to be good.

    You don't have to finish a beer in 2 minutes :
    you can take as long as you want.

    A beer doesn't expect you to be true while it runs around.

    A beer satisfies you every time.

    A beer is always there when you want it.

    If you pour a beer correctly, you can have as big of a head as you want.

    It takes a long time for a beer to go flat.

    You can have a quick beer on your lunch hour.

    If you want to change beer, you don't have to get a lawyer.

    Hrmph.

    I take issue with many of the things listed above! I guess I've just used too many men in my past to prefer beer over them? And my motto "younger is better!" I am in control!

    And, Janie, the debate forum CAN be fun if you allow it to be!

    Sherry,

    "I feel better on the days when Rosemary has been on before me at like 6:00 or 7:00 a.m.!!"

    Sometimes 2AM, but I don't want to wake you all up here so I go over the debate it board instead and get into some trouble.

    ////

    Shel, good to hear from you. You sound like your doing well. Cheers

    Hey lady, last night I was up and browsing around here at 2:00 a.m. ... would have liked the company!!

    Remember to take your "body armour" with you when you go to "Debate It" - it's cool when there's a sense of humour flowing through it -- otherwise, it can get down and dirty!!

    Lini, it will cool down and fade away as most of the hot topics do. And then another topic will be raised and the heat will rise a little. Everyone has the places they like to go here ... we all like/need a little something different. It's what makes us who we are. Sige tried to get them all to her barbecue ... but I'm not sure they went!!
