1)  I got a spam telling me I should come get my money.  The sender was "Aztec Riches".  I've seen "Pirates of the Caribbean".  I know that taking Aztec treasure gets a curse put on you, oh yes.   Grin

2)  I was a store and came across a kind of fermented beverage new to me:

"Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout" from the North Coast Brewing Company, Fort Bragg, California. There's a picture of the personage named on the label.

3)  A friend sent me this link:

Amazing what you can do with bits of plastic.

One drink and you have a hypnotising stare?

 Cheesy

I was amazed by the Lego church, but I like it too, Nacho.  It shows some real creativity and definitely sticking to things and not giving up.

"Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout" from the North Coast Brewing Company, Fort Bragg, California. There's a picture of the personage named on the label.

Did the label have a warning about four hour erections?

I was just telling some people at my Church about that fine brew a few days ago, ironically enough.  There was a restaurant in San Diego I used to eat at frequently...I don't remember the name for the life of me, but it had a 'Gold Rush' theme that served it.

Goes great with ribs.

Somebody gave me a bottle of this about 7 years ago - I remember it was pretty good. I saved the bottle and it's now on my desk at work. (My workplace is blessedly un-corporate. I bicycle to work - 12.5 miles one-way - a few times a week in T-shirt and shorts, no prob.) Nice B/W pic of Grigorij Efimovich (drawing copied from photo) - one can see why people think he was a monk (he wasn't, and wasn't a priest or any other kind of cleric either) because he's holding his right hand up almost like a priest giving a blessing.

On the bottom of the label it says in Russian, '-í-¦-Ç-¦-¦-ç-+-ï-¦ -¦-Ç-â-¦ -+-¦ -Ç-+-¦-+-é-ü-Å -¦-¦-Ç-â-¦', which I think literally means 'A friend of the heart isn't born suddenly', which I reckon is either not-quite-proper or idiomatic for 'Good friends aren't made quickly'.
