Alchohol Sites

Yeah, I know it’s not spelled right. I was searching for a nice quote to open this up, but spelled it like that. There are quite a few “drug treatment and alchohol abuse” websites. You would think they would bother to spell it right if it’s their business. I’m easily sidetracked; sometimes it’s best to just get it out of the way first. We’ll have to settle for this old quote from Homer Simpson: “I would kill everyone in this room for a drop of sweet beer.”

I received a slightly used Wacky Web Sites calendar for my birthday, and that’s what got me started on the quote search. Here are a couple of quote-related sites from it.

First Drink of the Day is an animated manic-monkey-musical about the hair of the dog. Their main page is rather good.

Once again we learn that websites keep moving. The calendar offers up a page that no longer exists, but at least they left a forwarding address. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has a typically useless government page called Drug Calculator that will actually do multiplication and addition for you! Once you confess your sins to it, it lets you know how much you spent and what you could have bought instead. It let you know that for the $7,200 that you could spend on beer every month (100 drinks per “setting”, 9 times per week) you could instead have had both a wildlife safari in Africa and a trip from NYC to London on the Concord.

Oops, there are no more Concord flights. And there was no place on the form to include champagne brunch.
