My latest absinthe toy

This is my latest absinthe toy, which I got for Valentine's Day: a see-saw brouilleur. It's so hypnotic, I could sit and watch it for hours. Well, for a few minutes anyway, which is about as long as you need for the water to trickle through.

Here's a tale to make the connoisseur weep - at my birthday bash last year I was chinning shots of Absinthe. Ghastly.

That reminds me of sex. A lot of things do, but watching that makes me want to search out Poor Bill. He'll thank you later!

That's a toy I would love to play with and for a change it's not a sex one. Lol

I like it!

I was here before and couldn't leave a comment for some reason...but now that i'm here I'm going to ask what may be a stupid question..but I'll do it anyway.
What is absinthe...and what the heck is a brouilleur. I'm going to goggle it too.

G/puss: That can't be good for you!

Olives: I'm sure Poor Bill will thank me! Was it the rocking motion that did it?

Suze: Again, was it the rocking motion...? I'm detecting a theme here!

Odat: Click the "absinthe" label and you can read my previous absinthe post and follow some of the links. All good stuff. And yeah, the comment snafu was my accidental fault.

Martha: Cute, ain't she? She's fascinating to behold.

Shea: Again with the sex. What is with you people?!

Milla: Sure you can appreciate it. I can't paint, but I can still appreciate a nice van Gogh.

Will: Nice action indeed. No April Fools here. All real and genuine.

Martha: Don't come a-knockin' when the brouilleur's a-rockin'!

Stagg (Candy?): Thanks. It's very easy to upload vids once you have them on your machine. Jump to it!

Well, I appreciate the movement, but the taste? ah c'est a non pour moi.

Milla: Yeah, the movement rocks! No, I mean literally: the movement does literally rock. And it rocks, too.
