Re: is there such a thing as OVER FRUGAL

moghopper,
you're supposed to gargle with Listerine, not drink it.

Laphroiag is a dram for a cold, blustery winter night on the moors when the winds howling and it isn't safe for the wee ones to be oot and aboot. And a lad's had a wee bit too much when he starts talkin like a Geordie.

How man mutha man. Ye knaa what ah mean leik. Eeeh man, ahm gannin te the booza. Whees i' the netty? Gan canny or we'll dunsh summick.

Re: is there such a thing as OVER FRUGAL

moghopper,
yeah, I go to binnys once a week for my 9 gallon habit. Great place. I browse the vintages but ER has reformed my palate.

They have a sister store on Rush St. and it has 3 bottles of 1998 Hill of Grace merlot. Best wine on earth. Not kidding. $300 dollars a bottle. I'm more like a $6-7 a bottle wino.

I don't have the opportunity to visit the board quite as much anymore, but I have remembered a few choice moments ;-)

Besides, I don't think I'll still be around in another 88 years.

Re: is there such a thing as OVER FRUGAL

Ok, you started something now.

When I was in college, my apt was so small..........................how small was it?

It was so small the cockroaches slept in bunkbeds.

It was so small the bathroom was the bedroom.

It was so small I shared a closet with 4 neighbors.

Etc.

Re: is there such a thing as OVER FRUGAL

You know how in college, if you brought a girl to your room you hung your tie on the doorknob to alert your roommate? Well my room was so small that I had to hang it on...oh, never mind.
