End Of Morbid Cocktails?!? Eff That!

by Jamye on November 12, 2010

One of the great things about being your own boss is that you can take a sabbatical whenever you want. That’s exactly what Amber and I did, albeit not intentional. And well… this blog really isn’t a job. Yet. Other life just sort of happened.

My last post was written sitting on the floor in the office of my new apartment. Now my furniture is moved in. My roommate has moved in too. I launched my first website at my new job. All in all, I just sort of got wrapped up in getting my life settled.

I’ve been doing some adventuring like riding my bike, going on some hikes, making new friends and finding new inspirations for some creepy garnishments. I think I also needed a little bit of time for my credit card spending to normalize. The bank is no longer rejecting payments or claiming suspicious activity for purchases like towels, DVDs and toilet paper.

I take that as a sign that during my transition time I have become boring. It’s time for me to mix this shit up!

Oh wait, that’s Amber’s contribution to the blog. She’s the mixologist. I’m just kooky idea person on the left coast : )

Halloween and LA in general have been good for inspiring me. Spending a lot of time biking along the ocean I see accidents all the time. Especially since rollerbladers like to be cool and wear their ipods with the volume turned all the way up. They don’t hear when we cyclists yell “On your left!’ and ring our bike bells before we pass them. Inevitably one of them gets really into their music, swings way into the other lane (the side you’re on to pass them) and both of you take a tumble. For a drink, I’m thinking of one called “Nose Bleed”. I want to get some of those glasses with the noses. Remove the glasses. Drill a hole in a nostril and put a blood pack inside. Only the blood pack will be filled with grenadine. Amber can make some sort of drink that will taste super yummy (no pressure Amber) with a slow stream of grenadine flowing in. I imagine a martini glass with a nose on the side, nostril pointed in of course, and upon serving you start the bloody flow.

Oh! We could even get some Chartreuse (the green kind, not the yellow) and have another version that tastes more bitter and call it something like “Sinus Infection”.

I am getting some really great ideas right now. And I’m remembering my groupons for pulled sugar. I think an order is going to be placed soon.

Glad you guys are back on! I’m in need of a seriously silly drink! Can you mix me something not too sweet, a little reminiscent of summer but not so much so that it makes me hate the coming snow? Ok, maybe something summerish and then one that embraces the snow. Yeah, I know, I want two…I’m greedy 😀

Hmm… I have some summer ones in mind, though I admit the fruit is now out of season. 🙁
Maybe we can figure out how to do an “Avalanche” cocktail for the winter. Or a polar bear attack, or something.

BlackAsphodelI did all the steps. It takes a lot of time and patience to enter the giaaewvys with a gazillion entry possibilities, but (if I really want the prize offered) I am not annoyed by them. I’m not even bothered by having to sign up to sites I wasn’t a member of before (Chictopia, Stumble Upon, Hellocotton, Delicious etc.) The stuff I don’t like is when the giveaway host makes you sign up to a site via their link and you can’t do that because you already have an account there (Nomorerack is the best example for this). The worst thing is when the rest of the entries are locked until you do sign up via their link. Which won’t happen because by now I would have had to create more than 20 email addresses to sign up to Nomorerack (I have nothing against that site, I signed up for it and have purchased there before all the giveaway hosts started to incorporate it into their giaaewvys.). XD Apart from this I am not scared to tackle the really long Rafflecopter giaaewvys. (I entered the Mother’s Day Bash . I clearly have WAY too much time! XD)If I handn’t written this long comment, I would have already forgotten having entered your giveaway, it was that easy. My e-mail: blackasphodel(at)yahoo(dot)com

makes perfect sense. I’m on a quest to chnage into a better person so I can be happy with my life. It involves learning to think outside my box, be open, accepting and inviting to new experiences. Learning to have more compassion, empathy and love. Picking life over death without needing to impose on anyone, kill anything living: including trees and animals and learning to love my earth because without it I can’t live. I pick LIFE.

The type of physician I would like to work for is a Pediatrician. Pediatrician’s sptliacey is to work with children. I have been working with children for a long time mainly because I work at a daycare facility. I’ve got to a point where I feel like I can handle anything that will come my way with them. It would also leave me feeling good at the end of the day to know that I have helped in some way to make a child feel better.The type of physician I would not care to work for is a Epidemiologist. Epidemiologist’s specialize in epidemics caused by infections agents and also work with sexually transmitted diseases. I feel if I were to work in this type of sptliacey I would be putting my self at risk of exposure to these infectious agents. Also I would be focusing a lot of my time on trying to not get infected instead of having a steady mind on what I was actually supposed to be doing.

Great to be reading you guys again. So what about the motif for the bar you’ll need to create? I SOOO want to be part of that! Would even be worth relocating to LA or NY to set something up. 🙂

I have given it up in the past just to pick it right back up. I’m on day one now and I know if I can just make it the next few days it will get easier!Loved this post!

I love those! So feastive! I can’t wait to try the candy cane rim as well, and I think that hot chalcoote one just looks so yummy. Warm alcohol, God hath not created a thing better.
