the real reason why so many writers are alcoholics:

[15:21] matociquala: right
[15:22] stillsostrange: someone finish this scene for me
[15:22] matociquala: I'm going to walk down to the packie and investigate the wine selection.
[15:22] matociquala: And maybe by the time I get back I will understand what exactly is going to happen between Arianrhod and Rien
[15:22] matociquala: Oh.
[15:22] katallen: ::waves::
[15:23] matociquala: I think I just figured out part of it. *g*
[15:23] stillsostrange: heh
[15:23] hawkwing_lb: way to go :)
[15:23] katallen: ::dies laughing::
[15:23] matociquala: stupid brain.
[15:23] leahbobet: woo wine and plot!
[15:23] katallen: writers -- different because our subconsciouses can be bothered to hate us that much

A-fucking-MEN!

If I wore t-shirts with slogans, I'd want that on one of 'em. ;-)

The where?
"Package store." It's what we here in New England call a store that sells only liquor and mixers.

"Package" is a euphemism for "booze."
OK, that makes sense. You might be a little careful using that term over here - it would sound too much like the English word "Paki", often used as a derogatory term for Pakistani, and also used, when I was younger as a colloquialism for the corner shop/convenience store (the Paki on the corner - often open late and selling alcohol), many of which were owned and operated by Pakistanis.

Over here, such a store would be an "offie" (off licence - as in licensed to sell alcohol for consumption off the premises, as opposed to pubs and bars that are licensed to sell alcohol for consumption on the premises)

Here, the crude term for a convenience store operated by somebody whose ancestors emigrated from the Indian subcontinent or environs is "Gandhimart."

I don't use "package store" anywhere but in the Northeast: nobody else understands it.

Of course, here it's an official term--that is to say, it usually appears in store names.

Like so:
