Quote: Originally Posted by Huntsman If you have never had Campari before, it can be a bit of a shock. It is very bitter. Straight, it's incredible, and I know many who simply cannot drink it, in any quantity, mixed no matter how -- it's like grapefruit pith. But I do not find that a Negroni ought to be undrinkably bitter. It's simple enough, 1:1:1 Campari, Sweet Vermouth (not Antica, though), and Gin. Hard to mess up -- so perhaps you are not a Campari...

I was going to ask whether you prefer the regular Martin Miller or the Westbourne...
Really great sitcom, one of the few shows I watch consistently. "Arrivederci, Fiero" was a great episode. The episode with Barney on The Price is Right was brilliant. Same with "Slap Bet." And like the best sitcoms, it gets better with time thanks to recurring elements, running jokes. A perfect example was "Murder Train" being played in the background when Ted fought with the goat, just as it was during the flashback of Marshall fighting with his brothers. Ted is an...
"Shelter From the Storm" is a major favorite of mine. I'm surprised no one has mentioned it. "I came in from the wilderness, a creature void of form . . . 'Come in,' she said, 'I'll give you shelter from the storm.' " Maybe it's because the woman-as-oasis theme strikes a chord with me.
