you can accept just about anything
of life even your own mysteriousness
you think it is nice that a box
of matches is purple and brown and is called La Petite and comes from Sweden

“Tu zawsze obecna jest myśl o wódce, wiedza o niej. Napić się, upić - najlepszy sposób na odnalezienie sensu pośród bezsensowności. Od wódki uzależnieni są nawet ci, którzy nigdy nie pili, bo muszą sobie radzić w tym świecie pijanych. Nie mówiąc już o tych, którzy odważyli się przestać pić.”
Taras Prokhasko, W gazetach tego nie napiszą

“Parecia que nada se fazia na Mongólia sem um brinde de vodka. De todas as tradições russas que os sovietes tinham exportado para os seus satélites, era vergonhoso que a que prevalecia fosse a vodka a qual, antigamente, nem sequer fazia parte da sua cultura.”
Ewan McGregor, Long Way Round: Chasing Shadows Across the World

“To clean the 240,000-liter saltwater tank where reef sharks circle what is to become Germany's biggest living coral reef, a filter apparatus runs on the lower level, breaking down nitrates with an anaerobic medium. The bacteria living in this medium extract oxygen from the nitrates that result from excreted waste, and they feed on carbon obtained from alcohol. This is provided to them in the form of vodka, purchased wholesale in ten-liter containers. Pure alcohol is not necessary; the carbon content in vodka (roughly forty percent) is sufficient.”
Hanna Jurisch

“A dry martini," Bond said. "One. In a deep champagne goblet."
"Oui, monsieur."
"Just a moment. Three measures of Gordon's one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it very well until it's ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel. Got it?"
"Certainly, monsieur." The barman seemed pleased with the idea.
"Gosh, that's certainly a drink," said Leiter.
Bond laughed. "When I'm...er...concentrating," he explained, "I never have more than one drink before dinner. But I do like that one to be large and very strong and very cold and very well-made. I hate small portions of anything, particularly when they taste bad. This drink's my own invention. I'm going to patent it when I can think of a good name.”
Ian Fleming, Casino Royal
