Jameson is good material... Maker's Mark also never disappoints. Tell us, what went down today at work?

Oh I just work for one of those giant soul-less multinational corporations that seem to attract jackasses that expect everyone around them to be a combination of a machine and a mind-reader.  The kind that believe that when you cover a document in red ink changes... that constitutes a "reworking" of the old draft, rather than what it more obviously is... a NEW draft...

I generally aim for 15+ yrs and single malt, not that fussed which distillery...

If I could ensure my mortgage would be paid and instead write games full time, I think I'd probably quit (or just poorly perform and wait to be fired) and write... at least I wouldn't have to listen to long demoralising speeches about "how you suck and can't write emails" or some other such nonsense.

The usual suspects are Glenlivet and Glenfiddich, but the cost of Glenlivet has been rising steadily over the years. However, I prefer GLenlivet to GLenfiddich... just not enough to cover the $15 delta.

Glen Garioch is good for the money. Glenmorangie and Cragganmore are good. One of my favorites is  Balvenie, whose smoothness is particularly noticable at the higher ages... but you're going to pay for it (~$75).

Yep, another day confirming my thoughts that if I could make $60k a year writing (before tax) I'd quit this racket I'm doing, give a big "one-finger salute" to the usual corporate grind and become a writer (or something else)...

I'm lucky and unlucky to some degree on this point of yours.

The unlucky part... I'm allergic to alcohol. If I drink a little, I'm hammered and sick. If I drink a lot, I'm a dead man. So I don't drink, not for almost 20 years. I do "other things" instead...

The lucky part... I work for myself already (or rather for the family) in the family business, a small graphic design, digital printing and sign company (I do other things, but that pretty much describes the bulk of it.) So I'm doing what I'm good at which is professional art and creation on a quick turn-around - for mostly mundance purposes.

The direction I want to go is what I'm trying to do with Kaidan - work on my own publication, and just a handful of consistent publishers doing cartography work. And so making $60K+ before taxes... if that happens, no more local customers.

For me, I'm tired of working for local clients, some are good, some are a pain

Pretty much woke up to this. Weird seeing whiskey as the first word of the day.

Keeping the thread on task, did they serve at your brother's wedding? Had a college reunion cook-out yesterday. Hazy, hot and humid, but there was a pool and lots of refreshing brew... varieties much like the selections in the other thread.

No, with a couple of reformed alco's in the relatively close family and a good handful of "Teetotaller" Conservatives in the wider family these sorts of functions tend to be kind of dry.  There was a bit here, and a bit there, but no.  Also, in general I'm trying to stay on speaking terms with my liver so I've cut back from the 24+ beers per week + 5+ bottles of red... I'm going back to love handles (as opposed to a "Love Verandah/Porch") and waking up most days without the need to skin my tongue with a hunting knife.  So all in all, being "semi-arid" is working for me.

Why not combine both and start working at a whiskey factory?

I like to revisit this thread from time to time... I tried a new (to me) single malt the other day:

Tyrconnel

a delicious and surprisingly smooth liquor with a dynamite aftertaste.

here's a review form a pretty good source for those who appreciate the finer things:
