Also ID's the runes on the items you pick from, as an extra bonus (so that you know what the items are).
Since we're playing fantasy vanilla, how about a stick or twist? The item pops up for one second and one second only. You can hit space to accept at any point. There are 10 items on the menu. If you don't stick at any point then you receive the tenth item.

IMHO this breaks immersion too much.

I basically converted to the Drink 'n read style. It's just more streamlined.

Life only gives a level feeling of 8 (as I found out by drinking one at an early level the other day).

That's almost philosophical. Perfect chapter title for "Zen in the Dungeon of Angband".
