Favorite Beverages of our Freepers??

Posted on 01/01/2013 11:15:42 AM PST by SamAdams76

I have often wondered what preferences of beverages the various Freepers have, in particular, the kind of intoxicating liquors they tried to ban back in 1920. I know by reading stories on here that many of us consume intoxicating liquors from time to time and we may even have some Freepers who have accumulated some POIs over the years (posting under the influence). Obviously, don't post your favorite intoxicating liquor if you do not want to, but I just thought it would be interesting to see our beverage choices. Especially the morning after many of us quite possibly overindulged on same the night before...wait, is it afternoon already? Darn. Having breakfast at 1PM always throws me off my game.

If you don't drink intoxicating liquors at all, feel free to tell us what beverages you do drink. Milk, apple juice, sarsaparilla? Your reply might be boring to us but let us know anyhow if you feel so inclined to share.

In response to all the other nutty threads here today seeking personal information on Freepers, I am 50, have brown hair, hazel eyes, weigh 225 pounds and I prefer female company. My waist size is 40, my shoe size is 12 and yes, I do need to keep an eye on my blood pressure. I own a dog, a cat and no, I do not snore. As for intoxicating liquors, I prefer madeira wine, Samuel Adams seasonals, Frangelico hazelnut liqueur, 100% agave tequila and the occasional bottle of champagne. But preferably not all together at the same time as what happened last night. As of this moment my favorite beverage is Gatorade.

Here in south central PA we don’t even see Genessee beer. Is that company still in operation? In a former life, in 1962, while attending IBM School in Endicott, NY our classes were held from 3:00 to 11:00 PM.

After class we ALWAYS went out for some relaxing libation, which usually was Genny because of the locale. It wasn’t bad at all.

I also found it cutely quaint when some ladies we met from the Buffalo area referred to PIZZA as “Hot Tomato Pie.”

But our Lord says to love them, and pray for them. I haven’t got that far because I want them to burn in hell, where they belong.

I’ve been in AZ since the mid 90s so I dunno what’s up with Genny. I have heard it’s both bankrupt and booming...who knows?

It was the National Beer of the Adirondack Tri-Lakes region when I lived there though ;)

I like the Bombay sapphire, too. Usually only in the summer, though.

The rest of the year I like Edna Valley chardonnay.

Jesus is perfect. I am not. I say to hell with our enemies. That’s WHY they are called enemies.

I don’t think God would want us praying to benefit or support evil. And I am more than willing to bet my soul o it.

I LOVE Dr.Pepper. As well as the orange soda, something burst and grape soda, I believe to be Welsh’s.

I don’t drink soda very often. However when I do, it’s a matter of choosing between the 3 I have stated above.

When I opt for something a little less than bourbon, dark beers are good. Porters and Stouts are awesome. Opaque is a must. I've tried this one recently. Good stuff.

Maybe not benefit and support evil, but try to change their ways?

People at work think I’m a “Jesus freak”. Fine with me. But what if I could just touch 1 soul. What if just 1 soul would turn to Christ because of my “blathering”?

I get what you are saying, but consider this. You can still pray for them privately without empowering them publicly. And by empowering, I mean giving them an inch of acceptance.

When we ‘get along’ with these idiots, they just point to it and say to others ‘well so and so is cool with X and he/she’s conservative.

It works against us in the big and the small picture.

Just like how the GOP uses the support Romney got to ‘prove’ the country is really moderate and ‘rejects’ those extremists in the TEA Party.

My bff and I (was at her house for election night, my cable still out because of Sandy) were throwing ourselves around on the floor, crying and hugging. We just could NOT accept it.

It's hard to watch the death of your country. But see my editorial in the next few days to catch a ray of hope.

In fact, you should be in my ping list.

And catch up on my other editorials in my links list.

If we are to marry, you should know me.

Georgia is quite red, and likely to stay red longer than texas, which is reaching a tipping point soon.

Great. They went gay with the packaging.....

I remember the simple gold labels and red/blue 6-pack holders. White cans or green/gold.

I don’t know. A friend’s father collected beer cans and that was his favorite. I don’t know if he ever got a hold of an unopened can. If you look at Miss Fruthingslosh, she’s rather well endowed and that’s how the pictures on all the cans look.

The cans were too funny!

Once upon a time. But not anymore. Not since...

Unsweetened Kool-Aid sweetened with Splenda. I keep several flavors on hand. Favs are orange, black cherry, grape, and lemmon/lime.

Right now lemmon/lime is keeping me hydrated.

Yeah but they are not a worry. They are less annoying than true roaches. Roaches are plentiful in New York and you know how they are very tough to get rid of and very numerous. Not so with Palmetto bugs. They are relatively rare and die easily, and I think I’ve seen maybe 10 in the 10 years I’ve been here.

I love diet Vernor’s Ginger Ale. Sometimes I ad a shot of vanilla vodka to it. Vernor’s frequently makes me sneeze, not sure if it’s the ginger or the little bubbles.

it tastes like antifreeze.

Many years ago during one summer in Ohio, I lived on Genny Cream ale and Black Velvet.

Just seeing the name "Genessee" brings bile up my throat.

Impeach the kenyan or secession.

I think it’s a safe assumption that Genny has brought quite a diverse amount of things into peoples throats.

Bile, lunch, dinner, Doritos, pizza....

But it also caused amnesia. Because a few hours later we did it all again ;)

Luckily roaches are not as common as they were in the Bronx. I haven’t seen a single one since we moved to Long Island in 1980.

10 in 10 years? What about other bugs. I’m a total bug phobe. Lucky for me, my Mary loves to catch and eat(ew)anything that moves.

You could only imagine the dreadful scene when I have to take a spider out. Oh, the horror!

There are bugs, but nothing I have seen as obnoxious.
