Post by Robert Krten » Wed Feb 27, 2002 3:09 pm

Once again, we'll be meeting at Colonnade Pizza on Hazeldean Road
in Kanata at 7pm, on the first Thursday of the month, which in this
case is March the 7th. Hope to see you there!

Cheers,
-RK

Considering Colonnade Pizza sells pizza, couldn't we try to have the meeting
a little earlier and buy supper there?

I have no real objection... Why don't you show up at 6pm and see who
else shows up? I'll be there for 6pm. (I'm not quite sure *why* I
chose 7pm initially, such a decision is lost in the mists of time :-))

Yes, but they also sell *BEER* :-) However, as Mr. Belanger pointed
out, 6pm is better, so let's all try for 6pm. I'll be there at 6pm,
and everyone is welcome to come at 6pm. I'm sure we'll still be there
at 7pm, so whoever shows up for 7pm won't miss out...

Cheers,
-RK

As it's well-known "time is money". Let's assume that money = beer then time
= beer. So, "Krten's paradox" is solved. :))))

Careful ed1k, americans/canadians have rather special mentality about
drinks. Try to mention couple of times that you drink vodka and they start
to think you're an alcoholic. Of course they do drink it too, it is just not
something to talk about. OTOH, you can mention drinking beer as much as you
can, that's okay. They don't drink 'ersh' in general, although I taught
couple of them and they liked it so much as to go and order it themselves,
much to the excitement of (russian) bartender who said it was first time he
made 'ersh' in America ;)

Cheers,
- igor

P.S. for curious: 'ersh' is russian term for mix of vodka & beer.

Hi guys,

There is big binge in xUSSR countries today. I guess many russian QNXers
drink vodka now, but they
will have a beer on the way to home, and they will recall you. So, be
careful of hiccup, especialy
after lunch... Special congratulations to ledies (I hope they are present
at this meeting) from
russians (it's a foolishness, but we live with it, congratulation to all
ladies with spring's
days).
Be sure, we are together in mind with you.

btw, I get spam in czech at first today ;-) There is only good thing they
don't write "it's not a
spam in accordance of american..." ;-)

Thanks all for nothing,.
Eduard.

Beer without vodka -- money for nothing.

Hehe, that's all boring old stuff. My favorite these days is 'Flaming
Jesus'. One and half ounce of vodka, splash of grenadine and lime juices and
top it with half ounce of 151-proof Bacardi (carefully, maybe using a wide
knife or something). Then fire it with a match, get your guests excited,
drop couple of ice cubicles into glass and blow the flame off.

VERY smooth and works great as a 'party jump start drink'. Experience is, if
you start with it you're guaranteed to get your goove. Plus the show effect
;)

P.S. other modern drink: 'otvertka' (screwdriver eng.) - the mix of vodka
& orange juice (I guess
if it's mixed only by hand). Trade name of prepared&botled 7% cocktail is
'Longer' (I've seen it
only this holidays at first), mustly popular is longer 'Cactus' (I never
test cactus juice ;-))

LOL. That is 75degree (in russian measures) Puerto-Rican rum. But I guess
any strong enough rum will suffice, not necessarily Bacardi. Or give it a
'russian touch' by replacing it with pure 80degree spirit ;)

celebrated like last working day before Cristmas (I know they dont do both, at office's cafe at
least ;-))
