      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Wine Drinkers Only

Recommended Posts

I've found that cheap wine often = headache wine. I'm not talking about drinking the whole bottle and getting a headache, but I have found that two glasses of some cheap and some mid-priced wines can leave me with a sinus headache the next morning.

 

It's true I think that reds are more naturally apt to give one a hang-over, but for instance I drank two glasses of some cheap French Chard the other night on a long Delta flight, and had a headache within two hours. Maybe its the amount of sulfite added. Last week, I had two glasses of Rodney Strong pinot noir (I was eating a steak, and decided I needed a second glass to ensure that I offset the fat intake smile.gif)---woke up with a sinus headache, on a workday. madgo_ron.gif

Some People

some people never go crazy.

me, sometimes I'll lie down behind the couch

for 3 or 4 days.

they'll find me there.

it's Cherub, they'll say, and

they pour wine down my throat

rub my chest

sprinkle me with oils.

 

then, I'll rise with a roar,

rant, rage -

curse them and the universe

as I send them scattering over the

lawn.

I'll feel much better,

sit down to toast and eggs,

hum a little tune,

suddenly become as lovable as a

pink

overfed whale.

 

some people never go crazy.

what truly horrible lives

they must lead.

RobBob - drinking on the plane will ensure a hangover. Maybe you are sensitive to sulfites.

Michelle-I know, but the prospect of 9 hrs of intermittent turbulence mostly over the wilds of SA were too much to endure w/o medication. cantfocus.gif

Not sure about the $2.99 Chuck, Chelle......

but I am sipping on a glass of Chianti right now, finishing a slice of cheese cake from last night and listening to Led Zeppelin. Not a bad combination......

Big Night On The Town

 

 

drunk on the dark streets of some city,

it's night, you're lost, where's your

room?

you enter a bar to find yourself,

order scotch and water.

damned bar's sloppy wet, it soaks

part of one of your shirt

sleeves.

It's a clip joint-the scotch is weak.

you order a bottle of beer.

Madame Death walks up to you

wearing a dress.

she sits down, you buy her a

beer, she stinks of swamps, presses

a leg against you.

the bar tender sneers.

you've got him worried, he doesn't

know if you're a cop, a killer, a

madman or an

Idiot.

you ask for a vodka.

you pour the vodka into the top of

the beer bottle.

It's one a.m. In a dead cow world.

you ask her how much for head,

drink everything down, it tastes

like machine oil.

 

you leave Madame Death there,

you leave the sneering bartender

there.

 

you have remembered where

your room is.

the room with the full bottle of

wine on the dresser.

the room with the dance of the

roaches.

Perfection in the Star Turd

where love died

laughing.
