Go have a kid or two, that'll keep your "free time" occupied.

And add more stress to my life/relationship? No thanks. Enjoy bud! :-bd ;)

I've had a cold continuously for a year and half. Just saying.

It's not stressful Kane. You just have to fall into a different lifestyle. Having the kid wrap him/herself around your legs every day like a human bolo when you walk in the door actually drains all the shit away, rather than adding to it. It's an upgrade.

For some people. Depends on your nature. My bro was a stone cold f**k killer and took a lot of pleasure in being a true warrior put on this earth to take lives. Domesticated life hasn't been easy for him lol. I suspect his kids hugs feel more a literal bolo than a figurative one.

I'll struggle greatly when the time comes as well, I have zero doubt about that.

Comrade talking about sex reminds me of the old adage: write what you know. Sage words, guy.

Keep in mind we never had a bar in town that actually knew how to make decent classic cocktails till a year or so ago so I never knew what the f**k I'd been missing. My favorite at the moment is a manhattan. 2 1/2 oz Rittenhouse Rye, 3/4 oz sweet vermouth, 3-4 dashes of Angostura bitters, stirred for about 20 seconds and served up in a chilled coupe glass with a Luxardo cherry.

Pretty much working my way though this guy's website. He has quite a few how to videos too.

Here's some of his videos on howcast

Ay Winchester! I know we never been close like me and my bro Galt, but I been a cocktail nerd working on expanding my home bar repertoire for quite some time so feel free to DM me. I got some cool recipes. The number one tool you need to make lots of dope cocktails at home is a citrus press. Never use lemon or lime juice from the bottle. Fresh squeezed makes all the difference.

You ever watch alone in the wilderness - PBS showed it during some of their fundraisers? Wish they'd put the DVDs to streaming because I'd buy them.

Never seen it, but that was enjoyable.
