    This is my daily drink, I like the bourbons although I am planning to move to Nashville soon so maybe have to rethink Jack.

    One of the worst weeks of my life was spent in a dry county in the commonwealth of Kentucky...when I saw a sign alongside the road that said something like "last chance for booze next 100 miles" I thought it was a joke or advertising gimmick. It was not.

    Apparently amongst the community of SF, I don't drink often enough...and when I do, I always go for a beer or six.

    Beer over liquor for me, just how I am.

    Same for me most of the time - and cheaper the better - I like to drink it but don't really like being drunk, hence, PBR! At a get-together or something, that's different. And I get the odd yearning to get smashed on gin & tonics once or twice a year.

    When I first moved here (to GA), imagine my dismay when I discovered they had NO Sunday sales of anything - beer, wine, liquor. That sort of information should have been disseminated in a pamphlet when you cross the border. Not long after, voters approved Sunday sales but it's voluntary - not every store thinks you ought buy booze on a Sunday, and those that do usually make you wait until after 11am or noon (because you should be in church until then anyway).

    Strange synergy here. Last night I changed all my listings that have been hanging around longer than my new inventory system (more than a month or so) because I hate hunting for them when they sell - to 10 day auctions starting tomorrow. So I have 103 10 day auctions starting tomorrow. We'll see how it goes.

    Yeah, my new inventory systems helps me as well. My old listing stick out like a sore thumb with the red and yellow backgrounds. After those are gone, I go for the stuff lit by flash.

    Because I have three closets at my disposal, my inventory system means having enough hangers for everything.

    As for booze, I greatly prefer Scotch whisky from the banks of the River Spey. Bring back memories of meals in Scottish pubs!

    Well, I've got a case here:

    Recently I bought a NWT suit from a US seller, and he managed to ship out a completely different suit (probably just a mix-up)

    He shipped it to my proxy shipper, which again shipped it here to me(Norway).
    Should I demand that the seller covers all expenses in shipping? Both for me to return the suit I got, and for him to ship the original here? (If he still has it, for all I know he shipped out my suit to someone else...both are in same size and color, but one is a double breasted, other is a single breasted).

    I know shit happens ,but god damn it pisses me off when shippers don't double check stuff like this. Saves both parts lots of money and time.

    I did that once. I had two Harris Tweeds with the exact same unusual pattern. Thought I only had one. It sucks, but the seller really should offer the cover everything. He probably won't be on the hook for the two rounds of proxy shipping, but I would push for everything else if he doesn't offer on his own.

    I dunno, you're only driving a Ferrari to the thrifts, it's not like you've got a Bugatti...

    You didn't have your proxy double check? Seems like the seller should only be on the hook for shipping to and from the original shipping address.
