DOSE:
5 shots oral Absinthe (liquid)

BODY WEIGHT: 150 lb


when I was in Edinburgh this summer, attending the Fringe Festival, I stumbled upon absinthe for the first time in a bar...
it was absurdly expensive but I figured that it was a sort of 'once in a while' oppertunity so I coughed up the 3 pounds and took a shot...

it didn't taste horrible, definitely more pleasent than a shot of vodka or taquila, but it wasn't something I was swooning over either...

oh yea, I lit it on fire first and poured some melted sugar into it...I guess I could've added water to make it get all white but why?

so anyway, on my way back to the US of A I bought a bottle in the duty free zone to bring back...
got back home an then went to visit a friend on the central coast of California bringing the absinthe with me...
my friend and I decided that we'd try to get really smashed on absinthe...

anyway point in short is that absinthe gets me drunk quickly (due to it's 70% alchohol content) but doesn't do much else...maybe it's a little bit like being stoned too, and sometimes things appeared a little 2d, but it is nothing worth struggling to get...I promise
