I'll give you the facts, and then let you reach your own conclusions.
Last week I had a third date with my maybe-sorta new friend: she came over for a light meal, at which I cracked open one of the bottles of wine that Bert had sent me from Sonoma; afterwards, we went to see a movie. It was great fun, except for this: after she'd finished her first (quite small) glass of wine, I refilled it; we were still eating and talking, and the bottle was right there on the table. However! When we got up to leave, fifteen or so minutes later, I noticed that she hadn't touched that second glass.
And then at a party this week I discovered that my favorite new faculty member doesn't drink.
What is this world coming to, when academics don't drink?
And more importantly, who am *I* going to drink with?
