Default Whatever happened to Santa?

Another year without that $264 bottle of Fiji rum. Sigh.

Default Nobody loves me

The Samaroli Fiji Rum that I coveted at $264 came down to $188. Blew the Screech budget for the next few weeks. I got an important birthday in a year and a half, so I bought myself a feckin' birthday present. OK?

Default It was the last one

I'm pretty sure the liquor store only brought in two bottles. I'm told that the first one got away free. The guy must have had a variety of liquor going through the checkout, and the scanner beeped on the Fiji but didn't record it.
Lucky bugger. Still, at $264 it shows a certain level of commitment doesn't it.
