Re: Looks like I'll be doing my "Home Study" after all...

Where the hell is the ex-mormon family home evening guide? (Maybe I should start one :twisted: ) One suggestion is to delve into philosophy. The great thing is you don't have to agree with what you are reading, if you want to disagree with say John Stuart Mill about Utilitarianism you can do so wit...

Re: What are you drinking right now?

I'm enjoying a gin and tonic with Anchor Junípero. Sadly the store was out of limes so a lemon garnish it is.

Re: What are you drinking right now?

It’s a good one, for sure. Just had another one tonight with Basil Hayden’s Dark Rye. Easy cocktail to start with, for sure. I just love how spirit forward it is. Some cocktails just kinda remind you a particular liquor is in it when it peaks out from behind the other ingredients. An Old Fashion ma...

Old Fashioned made with Four Roses Single Barrel
Heh, I just had my first Old Fashioned tonight. Made with George Dickel Rye. I've become an instant fan of the cocktail.

Re: What are you drinking right now?

I usually don't like cocktails, but the other night I tried the Christmas special at a favourite watering hole...... real eggnog. Eggnog (probably from a carton) but with spiced rum on ice with a light dusting of cinnamon on the rim. Sweet to a fault but brought out happy memories with a twist. Mer...

Will be making some Amaretto mixed drinks in the very near future!
If what amounts to a hazelnut cousin of Disaronno sounds good keep an eye out for Frangelico.

A few friends, A bottle or two of wine, and a game of Cards Against Humanity can make for a VERY fun evening.

Talking from experience here...
Indeed. A little booze takes Cards Against Humanity to a new level.

Re: What are you drinking right now?

I didn’t feel more relaxed and I actually felt tired haha... but that could have been the time. If you are already tired then some light drinking will tend to bring out your tiredness in the same way that relaxing on a nice comfy couch in a warm room when you are tired will make you sleepy. The cra...

I knew you would have a good retort RR! Unfortunately, this is one I can't miss due to any illness, unless I'm literally on my death-bed. I dunno, some ipecac syrup and a willingness to vomit on yourself just as you are about to leave the house (or better yet at the threshold to the temple) would p...

Re: Coffee 101

One question for everyone. Recommendations on cleaning a stainless steel carafe? Mine had been picking up a bit of a stain and normal washing methods are not helping it. Baking soda or vinegar in hot water soaks are traditional methods. If those don't work you can do a bit of a gentle scrub with an...

Re: Have any GA's talked about a faith/truth crisis?

I would think for a GA to even admit that they had experienced a faith crisis would be like putting a damper on their "church progression". Kind of like, "Yeah, you made it through that bad spot but what were you doing there in the first place?" Yep. With the connection between sin and doubting any...

Lagavulin 16. It's like having burnt ends on an old oily diesel fishing boat complete with a curmudgeonly old fisherman who smokes a pipe and wears an oilskin raincoat. I love it.

Re: Shower thought: Are Mormons accostomed to day old baked goods?

Does this baker really see day old pastry as how she wants her product to represent itself? Thoughts? I think it'd be silly to refuse a sale because you were aware the customer wasn't going to consume it that day. As a customer I would think it weird if a bakery insisted I had to eat the baked good...

Re: Polygamy and later sexual repression

I think I mistakenly assumed that it was something like this: Every time you sin, you get a black mark by your name. The accumulate. Then, when you repent, those black-marks get some white-out. BUT!!!!!!! If you sin again, that white-out gets removed and the WHOLE SMATTERING OF BLACK MARKS COMES BA...

I tried abt 3 drops before adding to the nog. Tonsils burned for 20 minutes. :shock: In the nog it was ok...tasted like nog and booze. Sipping whiskey neat takes some getting used to. But if you can drink 8oz of eggnog with or without booze that's a super rich drink on its own. :lol: I started with...

Re: Polygamy and later sexual repression

In my prior stake, ALL MEN were asked by the bishop and stake presidency both some additional questions: "When was the last time you looked at porn?" and "When was the last time you masterbated?" Even if you assume all men have at some point, plenty go periods after repenting without. I went years ...

Re: What are you drinking right now?

Dude, I sent Spouseman out for bourbon to try in our nog and about burned my throat off! Might stick to spiced rum. That surprises me actually, an ounce or two of bourbon spiked into a 8 oz glass of eggnog shouldn't be burning throats. At two ounces (assuming 80 proof) that only results in a 8% ABV...
