Dreams are odd things.

Yesterday morning I had a very involved dream. One of the minor bits was visiting, with my family, a pub somewhere on the South Shore of Boston. It was midafternoon and we were there for a late lunch and the place was almost empty. Leonard Nimoy came in. (Fact: He grew up in Boston. Dream: He kept a house near the pub for when he visited Boston.) The pub specialized in odd drinks and he wanted to show off some sazerac he'd found. It was in a decanter rather than a bottle, and the greenish-glass of the decanter had an usual shape. The flange at the top spread out into wings.

Yesterday daytime I looked up "sazerac" because I couldn't remember what it was, or if I'd ever known other than hearing the word. It's a cocktail made with rye whiskey (orginally made with cognac), bitters, a sugar cube, and also absinthe. Absinthe is known as the "green fairy". Fairies have wings. Fairies also, usually, have pointy ears.

Very odd.

(No, I didn't forget the Pumpkin Chutney. It happened. But I need to take a photo, for better illustrating the point there.)

That is just amazing. It goes to show you that your brain puts all sorts of things together without your being consciously aware of it.

It -is- really cool. ^_^ And it turned out to be really helpful, lol! I've had a bottle of Absente (not-quite-absinthe) around for a while, and not sure what to do with it. The absinthe ritual is fun, the ice water and sugar cube, but it's not a drink to have often. So now I'll try a sazerac as another option.
