Damn, son! You been saving up your words since you left AOL, only to download them all at once? You were never this verbose before.

Once again, welcome -- and may you learn someday to have an opinion and state it. [Image: biggrin.gif]

No, I've been THRICE as busy writing our Hot List every week and talking in the store and on the phone with hundreds of people a day all through the holidays!

Nice to see most of the folks _are_ here, Roberto

Roberto, clarify for me, please. Do you mean you're glad to see that most of the folks from AOL have visited here, or you're glad to see most (but not all) of the foks who have visited here? Inquiring minds, and all.

There goes "Woody" stirring the pot again...he's as bad as the Curmudgeon sometimes.

Wood, I've edited the post to reflect its meaning. So FAR I haven't seen any of the rabid anti-socialites and brain dead refugees from an alternate "realiti" that so polluted the old boards.

And now he is ranting from an internet cafe in the largest shopping center in SouthAmerica while watching thousands of Girl from Ipanema canditates shop for bathing suits (or dental floss, they are interchangable here!). ONe thing I have discovered: if you want to study a foreign language for three hours every morning, go to the beach every afternoon and then dance and play music for the whole nite (which doesnt start until 11PM), you dont drink wine you drink cha de mate (a suspiciously invigorating tea) or Guarana (suspiciously refreshing and stimulating soft drink)!

greetings from Rio, Roberto

Can we look forward to a direct-importing operation, with a certain wine store in Santa Monica as the exclusive representative of these Brazilian "upper" drinks?

<<cha de mate >>

The chemical in yerba mate is the same as in tea/coffee - caffeine - only a different chemical structure. Similar lift but not as hard on the system as caffeine.


- Jerry D Mead - 01-14-1999 05:50 AM

Roberta...Where can I sign up?

>>Can we look forward to a direct-importing operation, with a certain wine store in Santa Monica as the exclusive representative of these Brazilian "upper" drinks?<<

Actually Jerry, I hope to make my fortune and retire (Here, of course!) by importing and nationally distributing Guarana in a Champagne style bottle with about 5% alcohol (similar to Moscato di Asti) and as lewd a picture of dancing Baihanas and as lurid a description of the mystical sexual endurance it gives as I can get by the BATF! Do you think a secret message only legible under Black Light would get through the beaurocrats????

Just wondering, Roberto.

PS: I had some Champanha Mumms National last night and it was retched!

Is that the sound of retching and puking I hear, or was it putrid, awful and wretched?

Woody, it is wretched that I am forced to use this unfriendly WINTEL machine and the keyboard seems to have slightly different spacing than my Macs do! But,spelling errors notwithstanding, the stuff was not very good.


- winoweenie - 01-17-1999 06:39 AM

Heck fire Roberto....if the stuff can do all you intimate I`ll go for distribution rights here in Az. to supplement my Viagra patch Biz.... WW


- Botafogo - 01-18-1999 11:36 AM

Weenie (or anyone else), have you ever seen a movie (perhaps made for TV) where a bunch of geezers in a Sun City type place think they are getting jazzed up with extra testosterone and something like Viagra via patches in a clinical study? They all start acting like they are 16 again, having three women a day and competing like rutting pigs. When it is revealed that they all got the placebos and it was all in their minds, they all revert to being drooling octagenarians. The Doctor keep telling them it was really them doing all that, not the drugs but they dont believe it!

But, this Mate stuff is really good!

Tchao, Roberto
