Apparently, long weekends turn me feral...

It's 2AM... I am still awake.  I have, in the last couple of hours gone on 4 or 5 online shopping sprees wherein I go to a site where I need something but then see all of these other things that I momentarily justify needing and then I go to check out, look at the total and promptly click away from the site in horror because I've spent more than the GNP of Fiji... So, as of right now, I've ended up purchasing nothing but there are things that I NEED and I can't just go and procure them because, apparently, I have no self-restraint.

I've also just discovered that, at 2AM with no need to get up at anything vaguely resembling a decent hour tomorrow, when given the choice between nice, wholesome fruit juice and a Mike's Hard Strawberry Lemonade to drink because I've started coughing dust, I'll choose the Mike's.  I am pretty sure that this is a sign that at some point my cats will sit me down and stage an intervention.

Speaking of liquor... I seem to be on the road to attempting to make my own limoncello.  I have a glass jar for mixing/steeping. I have vodka. I need lemons. And a lemon zester (although I am sure that if all I can find is a lime zester or an orange zester, that will be sufficient).

Also speaking of liquor... on Wednesday I went to a vodka tasting and was introduced to the magic that is Bakon vodka... which is a (bet you didn't see this coming) BACON flavored vodka. Now, you might think to yourself "yeah, so what?" but let me tell you, a bacon bloody mary is pretty much the best idea in the history of ever.  I think I need to work a bit on finding the perfect bloody mary mix, but Bakon Bloody Mary's even with an imperfect mixer, are pretty delicious.

Other than that, I am trying to put together a wedding ceremony... I have a ton of ideas and now I just need to make something coherent out of all of those ideas.  Oh well, I will think about it tomorrow.... or, ummm, later today as the case may be.


  1. I was trying not to be appalled by the concept of Bacon Vodka until you mentioned that Bloody Mary. Now I want one so desperately I can't think straight.

  2. I don't know. I don't like bacon much, I like it on very rare occasion, it's a texture thing. I also don't like tomatoes -I do love tomatoe sauce and Heinz Ketchup, other than that I pretty much despise them and don't like Bloody Mary's either. There's like a bacon trend going on right now, bacon candycanes and the other day my friend who is just as picky as me was eating a bacon and peanut butter cupcake, ewww, lol. Anyway, to each her own though right. I think I'm more likely to like the sweeter vodka's, though I haven't tried any of them.
