3 Polish beers "Perła", 8 shots of Polish nalewka and 1 shot of Serbian rakija. It means: poprawiny - "fixing", i. e. the day after wedding reception.

How are you single!? Such an injustice to the men of the world.

I don't know. I just know that the wedding was one of the 3 men I really liked (but 4 years ago he claiemd there is too big difference between our temperaments). Another one got married a few months ago. The third one died last year.

Goodness gracious. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to raise a sad subject with a little joke. I do sincerely think you are very special.

I am happy, so do not be worried ;)
And thank you so much, Porter :)

Much impressed.  I got ~1.5 liter of Antarctica (both normal Pilsen and the ice beer variety) and one shot of Amarula today, didn't get me drunk since it was along hours, but it would if I took it all at once. I'm too weak for alcohol, not ready to be a Slav yet.

It demands years of Jesus Prayer to withstand Slavic amounts of alcohol. And probably at least a few generations of Orthodox familyline.

Not necessarily true.  I've held my own with Russians by copying them. Eat something between drinks.  Then you can drink forever.  Or until you fall asleep.

Depends on the person I guess. I'd probably die in some kind of alcohol poisoning if I drank like a Slav man.

Coffee is probably not great for me, really.  Or at least drinking, you know, water in between cups would be good...

So it would be difficult for you to visit Serbian churches and monasteries, as that's normal they offer to the pilgrims little (but strong) cups of coffee and rakija.

Yes. But, of course, in Serbian it's Serbian coffee, in Armenian it's Armenian coffee... I rembmer one of Egyptian dialect lessons at the univesity, and when we were reading something about "Turksih coffee", our Armenian mate was ready to leave the class "because it's Armenian coffee, not the one of these murdereres".

I drank mead for the first time. It was nice at first, but the sweetness became too much for me to swallow it all. Ended up doing it anyway because I don't like to waste my money. Bad decision.

My wife brews mead and it's not sweet -- just really, really good. Her last batch aged for three years, which is supposedly the golden period according to Poles.

There's a meadery near me that makes about eight different kinds, and the sweetness varies widely between them.

Bog-standard drip coffee, and sheer bliss it was, too. Our old coffee maker died last Monday evening, and we only managed to replace it yesterday. Somehow, the French press we used over the last few days didn't cut it.

Quite probably, especially the rakija.  ;D  I mean I wouldn't refuse.  But it might be difficult to be serious for the next little while...  I would try, though.   :-X

Cheap white wine from a box.

At least it's not rosé?

Good heavens, no. I still have some standards.

There are very fine rosé wines out there.

Since you're the guy who likes Franzia, I'm going to take this with a grain of salt.

I never wrote it's the only thing I drink.

I kid.

Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy
