english afternoon tea but that will soon be history since a a goose island ipa is winking at me.
Been dying to try   Heady Topper

Or Pliny the Younger IPA
never tried those; the goose island ipa is not all that good, but it's decent. a well meaning friend brought it over for easter thinking it was the summit of good beer.

I don't know about the "summit", but I've been missing having a bottle or two GI every now and then in the years since I've moved away from Chicago.

To the OP- a sip of water.

I've drank more than all you put together:



Or when you grow up to drinks men drink:



Then after a few hundred gallons of that, I preferred:



With enough surgical tubing, you can set yourself right for a few dollars.

Followed by . . .

I am having a hard time finding an image of liquor made from ketchup stole from the commissary.

Enjoy.



Ah, Miller High Life- the "we have enough to skip the 40s but not enough to buy real beer" beer from the days when drinking was all about getting as drunk as absolutely possible. And the Lazer 40 oz.... were the Wedding at Cana to happen today, the Theotokos would be telling Our Lord- "Son, they are out of wine" and the toastmaster would be complaining about the Lazer.

I went diet and it is no better.

They make it from orange juice. Who knew? It's like Whole Foods fancy drink. Antioxidants and all.

I can't stand the diet stuff. I need the real deal to get the fix.

I successfully quit cold turkey for about a year, but diet soda was the gateway drug compromise that eventually led me to fall off the wagon. I need to stop again, because at this point my Dew consumption far outweighs my water consumption. Speaking of weight, that's starting to reflect my drinking habit.

I can easily say that Mtn. Dew is far more addictive than cigarettes. It is much easier for me to quit smoking for an indefinite period of time than it is for me to go without the Dew for even a day. The withdrawals are severe. People don't think it's a big deal to drink soda, but I think there needs to be support groups. I'm going to have to get my feet sawed-off within a decade from the diabetes if I can't get off this crap.

Man, all this typing is making me thirsty. I think we all know what's about to happen. I'm such a dirty whore.

Plus, it is bad for your sperm and can lead to infertility...then again, I'm not too big on the idea of having children....

Not the case.

I've been downing the stuff for 15 years almost daily and I am virile with the issue of a horse (Ezekiel 23:20). I could probably impregnate your mom just looking at her. I've got two kids and no plans of slowing down. A good Russian Orthodox with a trail of kids behind me. Hopefully I'll have enough extra that I can send one your way when you are old and decrepit to take care of you and shoo off the cats.

Try the Trader Joes' Pomegranate White Tea, letting it steep for a couple of minutes, and then add one scoop of their organic stevia. That drink is sweet and great tasting. The stevia helps prevent the sugar craving while the white tea does contain some caffeine. Yes, you will still have caffeine withdrawals. All one can do is go cold turkey with the help of B complex or plenty of brown rice.

I am telling you . . . I spurned Dew for forever, partly due to hating my own identity being white trash, but if one week didn't turn me out.

White tea doesn't steep for a couple of minutes, well not if you are doing it right. And certainly not with water much above 180F that was first brought to boil then allowed to cool to that temperature to allow proper oxygenation.

Adding stevia? Just drink lipton.

I've never had Mtn. Dew (not big across the pond), but I don't think I'd like it too much if I had to go without Coke Zero for a considerable length of time.

For summertime cold drinks, I've found this infusion (and the others of the range, actually, especially the blackcurrant), incredibly refreshing.

My 'corner shop' happens to be the flagship store of one of the national chains, and one of the biggest supermarkets in the country. Most things in there, it would take being snowed in for a month to run out.

I quit sugar drinks and almost all sugar a couple of decades ago.
20 cups of coffee helped the transition.

Other than that I eat pretty much anything in any quantity and have stayed the same weight since college (with exercise).

City slicker. In my town, "discount" = Walmart, period. And I hate it, for all of the typical liberal and human reasons.

Never been in this Trader Joe's place. Until tonight I thought they were a brand of panama hat?

My coffee maker finally died due to me using it so much Sad I was rather sad this morning. I had to make the coffee the long, old fashioned way which involved boiling water, throwing coffee grounds in and then pouring it into my cup with a strainer. It tasted rather odd.

My husband pours boiled water over freshly ground coffee beans. He places a strainer over a large pyrex quart measuring cup, puts a coffee filter into the strainer, adds the ground beans, then pours a couple of cups of water into the strainer. Instant fresh coffee. Smells good too.

Costco membership costs $15 more than Sam's Club.  Sure, I realize that the extra $15 can be saved quickly at Costco.  If I'm in the same neighborhood as a Costco, I may drop in.

Die-it coke can kill you.

Artificial sweeteners are worse than high fructose corn syrup.
My first and last diet coke caused excruciating headaches. Then I found out that I am chemically sensitive to both Nutrasweet (aspartame) and Splenda. When I drank some Jamba Juice, not only did I have a headache, but also my heart started acting crazy as it felt like it was jumping. They told me that they use Splenda.

Not according to this report from the Centers for Disease Control.

Quote
In 2010, the five leading causes of death were: heart disease, cancer, chronic lower respiratory diseases, stroke, and accidents. The ranking of conditions varies according to demographics such as age, sex, and race.
The infant mortality rate reached a record-low level of 6.14 infant deaths per 1,000 live births in 2010.

http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/databriefs/db99.htm

I don't see celiac disease, chronic diarrhea, allergies, et al. as causes of death.

The report has been updated for 2011:

Not according to this report from the Centers for Disease Control.

Quote
In 2010, the five leading causes of death were: heart disease, cancer, chronic lower respiratory diseases, stroke, and accidents. The ranking of conditions varies according to demographics such as age, sex, and race.
The infant mortality rate reached a record-low level of 6.14 infant deaths per 1,000 live births in 2010.

I don't see celiac disease, chronic diarrhea, allergies, et al. as causes of death.

Of course not, people with celiac disease and chronic diarrhea usually die of cancer, as cancer is caused by continual stress. People with allergies often die of accidental death due to choking or lower respiratory diseases.

The celiacs and constant diarrheas can also die of starvation and dehydration, nothing to do with cancer.  A person with allergies could die of shock.

If you look at the death rate for CA in the 2 reports, it decreased from 2010 to 2011.   Smiley  If the CDC releases their 2012 Death Report in November, we can see how CA's death rate changes.

So is it wrong that I honestly don't give a heck about my health? I mean, I only have one life and I don't want to give up everything I like and go to all these great lengths to avoid nearly everything bad for me. I don't mind if it shortens my lifetime. I'd rather enjoy a shorter life than live a long boring life.

Die-it coke can kill you.

Artificial sweeteners are worse than high fructose corn syrup.
My first and last diet coke caused excruciating headaches. Then I found out that I am chemically sensitive to both Nutrasweet (aspartame) and Splenda. When I drank some Jamba Juice, not only did I have a headache, but also my heart started acting crazy as it felt like it was jumping. They told me that they use Splenda.

How fragile you must think humans to be.

You can drink formaldehyde if that is your cup of tea.
Aspartame can be converted to formaldehyde in the liver.
If you want to pickle your liver, that is your choice.
Why don't you tell us the whole story, Maria? You can get as much formaldehyde into your body by drinking tomato juice, and the amount produced is not enough to cause any problems, anyway.

Typos can reveal so much truth... Cheesy

Of all Coke varieties, I only drink Zero now. It doesn't leave me with Diet's nasty aftertaste.

Today so far, though, I've only drank coffee. And since I've got a cold, there's a lot of tea coming up.

My coffee maker finally died due to me using it so much Sad I was rather sad this morning. I had to make the coffee the long, old fashioned way which involved boiling water, throwing coffee grounds in and then pouring it into my cup with a strainer. It tasted rather odd.

You probably didn't boil it long enough. Ask your parents how to do it properly.
