    There's a good party store five minutes from here, but I didn't know Trader Joe's had their own brew, and I'm always looking to try new ones.

    Most vanilla available in stores is vanilla flavoring or imitation vanilla. Real vanilla extract adds incredible depth to baked goods. Plus, you get the shavings of the bean (think high-quality vanilla ice cream with the tiny black specks in it), which increases flavor.
    you're such a buzzkill.

    Yup - you really need a fairly tall charcoal column to redistill it, to allow the fusel alcohols to separate properly. My roommate had one, and distilled his own alcohol on occasion. (Larry, for F2B&G's benefit)

    So there's a standup comedian on Comedy Central now who has cerebral palsy, and his entire routine is making fun of himself. That's different.
    1) Mythbusters proved it wrong
    2) Isn't Josh Blue awesome?!

    You should buy a 2nd good bottle of vodka and tell her it's actually more expensive to make at home since you had to get that new bottle for consumption.

    Mets/Pirates battle for last place!

    Even I know better. Oh wait...I am a vodka drinker when I drink the hard liquor. I do have a standard. How do you think Mr. wore Black and I hooked up? Vodka is the answer.
