AWA is CON that you just can't miss!

This forum is for the announcement and discussion of anime conventions, and for the exchanging of rides to, and rooms at, conventions.

[quote="jescaflowne] LOL And no, there isn’t marijuana in it, I believe it gets it’s small hallucinogenic effects from something called Wormwood (but don’t quote me on it). The stuff is like 75% alcohol anyway, so even without the wormwood you’d be drunk. Maybe we can find a recipe for a magical absinthe punch concoction next year! ::puke::[/quote]

It does get it from wormwood, but the alcohol has a different purpose other than to just get you just plastered, it pulls the mind altering drug out of the wormwood, and concentrates it in the drink. Absinthe production (not consumption) is illegal in alot of states, but the south seems to hold on to the idea of allowing anyone to make it, thats why the hell you see it all the time in Loisiana, especially New Orleans.

I'd heard interesting things about the absinthe, but my recoil-and-hiss reaction to all things licorice kept me away... I appreciated the offer though 8)

Ian needs to bring more of that stuff next year.

Since its him and Hsien for Iron Chef next year (UK vs US) that Absinthe would work wonders as a secert ingredient for both of them.

I wonder what type of things they coudl edit with that stuff in their systems :twisted:

*note to self* AWA sounds like the place to stay sober and laugh at all the drunks.. 8)
If you've ever seen ep 10 of Trigun..well..that's one reason this Milly doesn't get drunk anymore! LOL :P
Still sounds like eveyone, especially DannyW. :twisted: had a great time!

I was sooo curious to try some of that, but my company has a strict drug-free policy, and I wasn't sure if it would show up on any drug tests. Ian, fucking awesome guy that he is, actually did some research for me to see if I could get away with it, but I was still wary. And hours before Joe tried it, he remembered that he was getting tested for drugs for his new job :)

Nathan tried to goad me into having some during Iron Chef, and had I been as wasted as I had been last year, I probably would have downed the whole glass :D
I have no idea how to use this new forum.

Yes, thank you to whomever for telling me *AFTERWARDS* that it was an illegal(in the US) psychotropic drug in the same family as marijuana... It was pretty good though (*Despite my -like EK's- total and absolute dislike for anything licorice*).

I'd tell my Puke story, but first off, none of the females on the board would ever talk to me again, and secondly, I don't recall much about Thursday night after Hsien, Joe, Jason and Brad stopped drinking (other than the fact that Nate and I didn't.) Suffice to say I puked in some guy whom I had never met's room and went across the hall to my own, Leaving Nate and company to their own devices.

It was fun being the designated driver, everyone puking all around you. Doing random things that make absolutely no sense. And you(being me) the only one with all your faculties intact :lol:

Anyway it was a great con. I personally had alot of fun meeting people.

I'm sure I will post more once I can get all my thoughts organized

The fun part is when you spontaniously become a DD. I ended up getting asked by the VAT staff to drive a not so sober staffer to the store for more VAT booze during the Iron Chef contest. Luckily he wasn't plastered...I just got my car a week ago that day :P

I would absolutely love to throw in some amusing stories (of which there are many) from AWA... and yes, it was a blast this year, as far as I can recall... but... most of the weekend is a blur between Thurs. and Sun. I've heard a number of stories I seem to have been involved with, but other than that, I was... yeah... and I absolutely do not remember that line, EK, but I laughed when I read it : )

Needless to say, I had an incredible time, and I'm sure as I continue to sleep it off (and eventually return home, as I'm still in Atlanta hanging out with StudioKZ) I will begin to remember more and more. I hope... for now, I'm afraid to say a goddamned thing. So tired... back to sleep...

That was Hsien's aspirin by the way...Fuck me for not thinking of getting some from the hotel lobby in the morning. A shepherd has to take care of his sheep after all. :?

I don't have any AWA puke stories to tell though. Well, not *this* year at any rate. :wink:

But how about kissing stories? Like that time that Jason and I...

All I can say is - you guys are such lightweights :P

(p.s. green fairy fans can now order internationally from here - the one I had was La Fee Absinthe)


I had a great time - just ditto everything said above except I don't have any puke stories, natch ^^

See you next year :)
