Curses.

I probably should have thought of this, but CPUs that fit my motherboard are no longer made. So, either I replace my motherboard, or try to get a replacement CPU on ebay. The money to pay for all this got sent off as an RRSP contribution on Tuesday, irritatingly enough, so I am going to try the ebay route first. The main downside to this is that it leaves me with no access to my store of music, and without a place to work on my digital art. The latter I might address by setting up my tablet on my laptop. We shall see how well that works.

In the plus column, the Summerhill LCBO had Pernod Absinthe, which thus far is at least not terrible tasting.

Athlon, I think 1.6 Ghz, socket A/socket 462.

The Pernod absinthe isn't so bad if you drink enough of it....

Oh, it "works" as absinthe. But, the flavour is not terribly complex. It's pretty much just anise and wormwood.

As you say, it lacks complexity, But fine absinthes are not complicated, they just contain more than anise and wormwood. Try adding an eigtth of a teaspoon of freshly ground fennel seed and a pinch of ground licorice root. A pinch of ground angelica and mint leaves wouldn't hurt either. Let soak for a day or so and strain through a fine filter. Absinthe snobs would be horrified, but you will have a much improved and more authentic beverage.
