Girlie Drink of the Week

My doctor told me I was looking a bit peaked and suggested I start increasing my Vitamin C intake.

By “doctor” I mean Hubby, and by “Vitamin C” I mean this.

citrus margarita

Citrus Margarita

  • 1 part tequila
  • ½ part triple sec
  • 2 parts orange juice
  • 2 parts lime juice
  • 2 parts agave nectar or simple syrup (to taste)

Pour all ingredients into an ice-filled shaker and mix well. Strain over ice into one of them funky saucer shaped glasses, or into a highball, like I do. Garnish with citrus slices. Also, salt is optional, but I find that orange-based drinks don’t taste all that great with salt. Best part of this recipe? You can make a batch and just sit outside with the pitcher, enjoying the day. Glass is optional 😉

Best Zombie Movie Ever

So ….

What is it?

No picking the originals just cause they’re classics.

I want reasons. Cinematography. Plot. Direction. Original theories. Realism.

You can list more than one if you describe what each did well.

I’ll update with my pick and why over the weekend.

Go!

Side note: If the zombie apocalypse happens and bites aren’t contagious … an awful lot of us are going to get whacked because of Hollywood.

Bonus: best anti-zombie weapon

Cowards

This shit is just old.

I’m sure you’ve all heard about the crazed fucktard shooting the reporter and cameraman or the family or the coworkers or the complete strangers in South Carolina or California or Chicago or here or there or where the fuck ever (Edit by Aggie- yesterday’s shooting was in Virginia, though it wasn’t the first, and won’t be the last, tragically).

No .. I’m not going to call for gun control or whatever knee-jerk reaction we’re going (or already are) to hear from the left and weak-ass bits of the right.

Cowards.

Sure there’s the occasional terrorist or put-upon fucker who has just had to much and snapped but most of these fucks are just …

Cowards.

They’re miserable, depressed and they want to end their fucked up lives. But they don’t have the balls to just give a blowjob to Remington or Ruger.

So they back themselves into a corner where they have no choice but to end it.

That’s what they’re doing. This is never about righteousness or revenge for real or perceived wrongs against them. Its simply about forcing themselves into a position where they have no choice but to end themselves.

Now these sad bastards offing themselves doesn’t concern me. Maybe I’m a little too libertarian in some ways. I suppose in principle I’m not opposed to providing these sad fucks with help, its just that I mostly don’t care.

I don’t care if I don’t know them. For a friend, I’d help. Its what friends do. As a stranger … not my problem.

However … these goddamned people need to nut-up and just do themselves. This bullshit of taking other people with them is … tiresome.

Rangers

rangers

I’ve not followed this (or anything else really) closely so I’m unsure. If these two completed and passed training without gender consideration, I’m all for putting them in it.

A warrior is a warrior.

I’ve never been a fan of “gender normalization”. Which is to say, “balancing” the requirements for non-men. If these two hit the mark at the same scale as all the other Rangers, then I think it’d be wrong to deny them their right to kill and/or die.

The general argument is that men would be too protective of the women to be effective in a mixed team. Maybe. But I really do think (hope) that if said women have actually proved themselves equal to the task as the men around them, the protective instinct would be (mostly) a non-issue.

Yes, I’m sure it introduces complications … but in my experience with “elites” of any sort, if you’re truly qualified (in their eyes) then you’re not a woman or a man. You’re a warrior.

And the US needs all the warriors it can get.

The World Burns and I’m Out of Ice Cream

Last week, the Dow lost 600 points in two days, and opened down over 1,000 points this morning. Before I could do a run at Baskin Robbins™, it began to recover, bouncing off the “lows” slowly and reaching -266 points as I write this. Markets go up and down, go on life support and then recover. This was triggered in part by instability in China, which just happens to own our debt.

Now you begin to understand why I need some World Class Chocolate by the quart.

Meanwhile, you have glorious whackjobs like Oliver Willis are doing full 180s regarding Teh Prez and the economy:

owillis 180 lol

In 2009 libs were all “TEH PREZ SAVED THE ECONOMY”. A mere 6 years later they claim he has nothing to do with the economy. Just like Iraq wasn’t his war but he totes “ended” it. It’s politics as usual, and as my blogger friend tree hugging sister says, perfected by the party that does it most often.

*down 170 points now, so whoo hoo!!*

Anyway, the best soundbite today comes from the resident Socialist, Bernie Sanders. He actually made me LOL, out loud:

“Unfettered trade”??? UNFETTERED?????

BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!

Either he has forgotten his votes on trade (which is totally believable), or he is completely ignorant of the control our government has over free trade (more believable). I’ll be honest here. I like Mr. Sanders. He is honest in his beliefs and has never wavered from them. But he is a marxist in socialist clothing. His belief in government control for the Common Good can only lead to Stalin v. 2.5. Our world is burning and socialism will be like throwing kerosene on the flames while bombing it with Greek Fire (SWIDT??). Corrections in the market are inevitable either way. But they are more stable when government stays out of it.

I’m going to go plunk down $20 on two quarts of World Class Chocolate. Little One and I can each have one, and I can eat straight from the container. This government is trying to take all the joy out of living, and I refuse to give them that.

Girlie Drink of the Week

My week is a sad one. Son leaves for college and Hubby leaves for his new post. I could only hope that packing for them both would be a Herculean task. It would be easier that way. Hopefully I will be done with that today and can relax for the rest of the time they are here. And what better way to relax than to imbibe, right??

dreamsicle-martini

Dreamsicle

  • 1 part whipped cream flavored vodka
  • 2 parts orange soda

Pour ingredients into an ice-filled shaker and swirl gently. Strain into a martini glass. You can also pour it all into a highball, ice and all. I prefer to use orange soda over orange juice because I want that sharp fake orange taste that takes me back to childhood, when “artificial” wasn’t a bad word. If you prefer no fizziness, try using Tang™ Orange Drink. It was good enough for astronauts, so it’s good enough for you 😉
