EVERYONE is welcome and please join us each morning at 7:30 AM PACIFIC
to tell us what you're working on, share your show & tell, vent, whatever you want...
...this is an open thread. Nothing is off topic.
What Are You Drinking?
Mine's Appleton Estate rum and Coke. If they don't have Estate, Special will do. If neither are available, I'll do Myers. If THAT'S not available... well, yeah I guess I can do Bacardi:
I drink beer, (Heineken, if I have a choice, but anything will do) wine (I prefer reds to whites) and other liquors (vodka especially.) But that old rum & Coke is my "go to." The brand comes from my mom, who kept a bottle in the house and enjoyed a Bahama Mama every once in awhile. I found I liked the taste of the rum straight (don't ask how old I was when I realized this, lol) and figured mixing it with coke would be great. I was right, heh heh.
In the non-alcoholic realm... I'm hopelessly addicted to Pepsi. That's a whooooole 'nother diary.
So, Whats Your Drink? Alcoholic or non, of course.
ATTN: Twin Cities Kossacks!
I'll be in Minneapolis to attend the American Indian College Fund Gala on 10/10.
I've a free night on 10/9. I know this is late to round anyone up but I thought I'd try.
Is anyone interested in a Kossack meet-up?
I'm staying near Washington Ave. South and 3rd Avenue. So a location within walking distance would be nice. All suggestions welcome.
Send me a Kosmail if you're available.
