OK sattie - if we don't get together and drink Champagne it's just going to be a really sad thing!!!!! Champagne crossed my mind when I first read this. The LEAST we can do is agree on a bottle, each buy it, and drink it at the same time while chatting here at DC.

Can you believe I actually have a couple friends who don't like it? That's ok, it leaves more for me!

Yea, people actually say Champagne is for special occasions - WHATEVER! 5:00 PM (ok, heck, sometimes 5:00 AM too) is a special occasion!

I always hated any diet drinks. Then something weird happened. My doctor told me I am diabetic, and I instantly loved diet pop and stopped liking regular! I still love tea with sugar but can drink it with Splenda.

I was wondering when/if someone would mention that.

Personally, I detest diet anything. On the occasion that I imbibe in diet pop, I want a sqeeze of lime in it. It really does help the flavor.

I don't really care for diet coke that has lime already added to it. I prefer fresh-squeezed by myself.

I had a problem reading the original post because of the formatting ... it might be an artistic expression - but it sure caused me problems trying to read it.

If the question was what diet soda I drink - Diet Dr. Pepper is about it, that racks up to about 3-6 cans per year. I don't drink much soda to begin with.

Diet Champagne? huh???

Can't do the diet thing. When I did, I wanted to pinch the taste off my tongue.
I buy a case of caff. free Pepsi and it lasts about 6 months.
My drinks of choice are sparkling water/seltzer, if I have - a slice of orange,
Iced coffee w/ cream and sugar, and ... get this...
Canned, unsweetened grapefruit juice.

Regular soda is just too sewwt for me.... except Cherry Coke. then I gotta have the real thing.
I only drink a soda once every 2 weeks or so. The only 2 I really drink are Diet Coke w/ lime or regular Diet Pepsi. I bought a 24 pack of each around Christmas and I still have most of it!
