Anybody up for a Friday-night drinking thread?

Relaxing with some Burgundy and a pizza.

How's everyone doing tonight?

I was on last night, but it was Thursday, and I didn't have a lot of takers...

1. Too early for me.

However, I'll do a shot of some low content foo-foo Alabama Slammer for a warmup.

6. Drunk and facing another night in a hotel room during a continuing education seminar.

What is your opinion of Soviet-era electric guitars? I know some guitar guys who liked them and considered them indestructible...

10. I had heard that the hardwood construction is what made the difference.

There's a Soviet-era rocker, Viktor Tsoi, that I like to listen to; he shreds...

15. That song was featured in one of my favorite films, 'The Beast'.

A film about Russian tank crewmen in Afghanistan. It came out in 1988. I went to tanker school in 1989 and managed to convince my drill sergeant to screen the film for the other trainees. It showed a genuine Russian-built T-55 tank up close and personal, which was good for tank recognition training. (This was in the days before YouTube, when you could access thousands of videos about tank of every conceivable model.)

18. Interesting. The Matrix meets The Lord of the Rings.

Was that her at the end? She's hot.

I've got about four or five languages represented on my iPod. I like listening to what other countries are producing...

8. Getting to drink as much as I want is one of the allures of out-of-town continuing education.

I try to stop at some point in the evening (if for no other reason than to sound sober when my wife makes her bedtime phone call...)
and just drink water, to head off the hangover when I'm supposed to be in class the next morning.

30. When I first saw 'The Beast' in 1988, I never dreamed for a moment that one day, that would be us.

I remember thinking 'Didn't the Russians learn from our example in Vietnam?' Then it was no doubt the Russians who were thinking 'Didn't the Amrikanskis learn from our example in Afghanistan, the same damn country?'
