    In Thomas Harris's series of books about Dr Hannibal Lecter, Lecter serves a Chateau Petrus Bordeaux with the sweetbreads of a Baltimore Philharmonic flautist.

    Sometimes, if I am at an event, I will slyly ask for diet gingerale in a champagne flute. Or Ill just do diet sprite in a cocktail glass. I used to think a glass of diet coke would pass as a cocktail but my friends told me it wasnt believable that id drink rum and coke as a signature drink

    it sounds silly but in social situations, I dont like to call attention to the fact I dont drink alcohol, I find sometimes it makes people who are drinking feel uneasy--as if im against alcohol in general which Im not at all, its just a palate preference. By social siutations I mean parties and large events--particuarly if we are hosting them, obviousy I dont bother if its my friends/family

    Im past the age where I "wanted" to like alcohol like everyone else, and dont really care to aquire a taste for it now.
    Yes, because everyone is so 'refined' at 25. You would assume you were in your late 40's the way you talk asthough you're superior to everyone else. How drab and boring your life must be. Watch that someone doesn't steal your boyfriend and give him a 'blow out' of their own while you're busy making sure everyone is wearing the 'mandatory' white tennis shoes.

    There is a country club about two blocks from where I live. A while ago the staff went on strike because they were tired of working long hours for minimum wage and unpaid overtime. Most of the members just couldn't understand why they striking. One memorable quote that made it to TV was "They should be grateful to be serving people like us." The strike lasted 7 months before it was over. That pretty much sums up most country club people, IMO.

    Recently there was a shooting outside this club when one rich asshole shot another rich asshole over a stock deal that went bad. Rule #1 -- stick to ripping off little old ladies, not your club buddies wearing white tennies or otherwise.

    The morning the body was discovered, a blonde bimbo type was quoted, pouting her collagen lips with all her might on TV, saying that not being able to play tennis in the morning had ruined her whole day. Boo frickin hoo for the dead guy's family and friends. This bitch's tennis game was disrupted!

    There undoubtedly IS pressure to drink alcohol at social functions, although it's easier now that people finally Get It about drink/driving. We occasionally go teetotal for a while, purely for health reasons and to give our livers a break, and I find a glass of plain sparkling mineral water with ice and lemon easily passes for a gin and tonic - although it's a bit sad having to 'pretend' to drink to keep people off your back. I'm not sure what a rum and coke 'type' of person is?

    As for French wine (and knowing something about the subject) I can confirm that it's nothing special and usually WAY over-rated and over-priced. I know I'm probably biased but Australian and New Zealand wines are excellent quality and value and these days we don't drink anything else.

    As for country clubs and other 'exclusive' establishments (and knowing something about this subject too) the reasons why people aspire to belong to these places and the type of members they attract are precisely the reasons why I won't go anywhere near.

    I like French wine, but I also like Australian and New Zealand wine. The latter is mighty pricey here -- you can get a good bottle of French for the same or less.

    I think it is everything that some people aspire not to be. You're obviously not country club material, lol.

    Me either. I dont even want to get drunk, i dont like to be out of control, and i certainly dont want to be throwing up. People who dont drink look better anyway. All the women in my family drink in moderation, and never to get drunk and they look fantastic, so theres my motivation. I dont care if everyone my age has to get smashed every weekend, i dont feel the pressure.

    It doesn't have to be All or Nothing with alcohol. Like anything else it's fine when taken in moderation and a couple of glasses of wine once in while certainly won't make you drunk, or lose control or throw up. But if you don't like it for whatever reason that's fine. The idea of drinking with the specific intention of getting drunk is ridiculous but sadly very common.
