No spoilers

Butch:

Well, I got nothing. I have a cold, does that count?

Oh, and I’m about to have a heart attack as today is the day I pay the Amex bill with the lion’s share of Xmas on it. I’ll try to be out of the hospital in time to play. And I hope to not have to hock the PS4.

Wish me luck.

Dear God the Thanksgiving groceries are on it, too……

Feminina:

Deep breaths. Deep breaths.

Is any of the booze on that bill still stashed around the house? Break that out now.

Oh, who am I kidding, there’s no booze left from Thanksgiving.

Butch:

Dear heavens no. And if I break out the booze I do have, I’ll just be reminded it’s on NEXT month’s bill!

I’m doomed.

Feminina:

It’s an endless game of catch-up, all right.

Unless…you make your own booze. This is where the pear brandy comes in! Curse that bad pear harvest last year.

Butch:

I’m desperate enough that I’m sure I could turn up something to ferment and distill. Clementine peels. I have a lot of those. That half a bag of spring mix that’s gone slimy that I always seem to have. Acorns. There were a lot of acorns this year.

Feminina:

Here are a couple of acorn wine recipes:

And a long thread from a home-distillers group: https://homedistiller.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=32652&start=12

Both of these assume some level of experience/equipment that we’ll probably have to work up to.

Here’s an easier one for acorn liqueur, but of course that requires already having some booze around: http://www.buildthebottle.com/2019/12/17/acorn-liqueur-recipe/

Butch:

If anyone can work it out, we can.

Oh, and planning:

Got a five buck coupon at best buy. Are we agreed that we’re going ahead and preordering Cyberpunk? Cuz if we are I’ll go ahead and do that cuz you know how I am about coupons.

Feminina:

Cyberpunk, eh? All right, I’m in. Order submitted! I don’t have a coupon, but I’ll rake in those Amazon points.
