The Saga of the Elusive Stoli Zinnamon.

Two weeks ago I sat comfortably in a hotel room nestled in the Catskill Mountains of New York and drank a spirit I had never tried before. It was delicious, it was spicy, it was Stoli Zinnamon. I drank it as my hosts had intended, straight, on the rocks.

I thought about it the next day...and when my hosts offered it again, later that evening, I jumped at the opportunity. I drank it...again...one glass, before the bottle was empty. They had more plain vodka, but it just wasn't the same. So I figured I could get some more when I came back to Boston...a bottle all to myself.

Insta and I went to a liquor store tonight, clerk saw me eyeing the Stoli bottles on the shelf and asked if I was looking for something in particular. "Stoli Cinnamon?" I said, still trying to find it among all the other bottles. "I don't think we have Stoli Cinnamon. In fact, I didn't even know Stoli made cinnamon vodka.
"Yeah, they do." I said to him..."I just had it recently...it's a little like Goldschlagger..."
"...without being so firebally" he said, finishing my sentence...
"exactly..." I acknowledged.

So we left, no Cinnamon Stoli, but a bottle of good ol' Sinatra-approved Jack Daniels instead.

When I came home I asked Melissa, (who enjoyed the Stoli Cinnamon along side me) if I was correct about the special spirit. She confirmed. Indeed I was correct, we did enjoy "Stoli Zinnamon" as it is spelled on the label. "But it's not on their site." I said to her. "All I can find is this info page and a recipe some girl made up named the "Dry Beaver."

"Don't you remember..." she said to me...I'm always forgetting things..."They have a hard time finding it..."
"They said that?!" I exclaimed in mixed excitement and disappointment. "Yeah, that's why they bought several bottles when they were in St. Thomas last month..."
"Oh! So that explains it...I wonder if you can get it States side..."

If anyone knows where I can legally purchase a bottle of Stoli Zinnamon (Cinnamon) in the Boston or New York City area, please, please, please let me know.

Jumping on the bandwagon

You're Alice's Adventures in Wonderland!

by Lewis Carroll

After stumbling down the wrong turn in life, you've had your mind
opened to a number of strange and curious things. As life grows curiouser and curiouser,
you have to ask yourself what's real and what's the picture of illusion. Little is coming
to your aid in discerning fantasy from fact, but the line between them is so blurry that
it's starting not to matter. Be careful around rabbit holes and those who smile to much,
and just avoid hat shops altogether.

Take the Book Quiz

I'll use any excuse to bring back this picture.

Bestseller or yesterday's news?

[ For context see post below ]

I am an idiot. I am a moron.

I figured out the problem and it had nothing to do with the card at all...sort of.

I bought the wrong one. I bought a network/telephone modem combo card. It's being returned tomorrow.

I hope my story was a source of amusement. At least then it would have some value.
