*M wanders in, shakes off her rain soaked hair. Sits at bar*

Hello, Sputnik!! I'd love a White Russian! Can I get a couple of those macadamia nuts in there too, please?

How are you tonight?

I'm doing good. It's raining here again though. We had a couple of days without rain but now it's back. Gets kind of depressing to say the least. How's your weather over in Detroit?

*sips her drink, adds a couple of nuts, stirs with swizzle stick*

Wow! This is a great drink, thanks!

It's been nice here. Oops, I didn't realize you wanted the nuts in the drink. I've never seen that before.

Yup, I remember having a few White Russians at a hotel in California. Free happy hour! WOOHOO!

*tips back glass, drains drink and happily chews on the macadamia nuts at the bottom*

I was finding it difficult to put the word nuts in my sentence....finding it a bit ris-kay.

Regarding recent "Booze can Wait" debate here,
Reno may have hard liquor you want, but as for canned beer,
I'd suggest you get it elsewhere if at all discerning.

I am confused.

OUCH!!! Good beer is a terrible thing to waste!!!

(tippytoeing around bits o'glass)

Sorry I missed Champagne night (did anyone find the case of Blanc De Noirs I had buried under the spare bar mops??) but it was my daughter's 18th B'day (really!!) and I spent all day up there with that side of the family (she's been going to school up there - as it seems it worked out well for her) - *finally* met the elusive boyfriend, am totally impressed - this guy is a real class act and (maybe even) burner material >>evil grins<<... Wouldn't mind calling him a son-in-law... >>scheming mom genes kicking in there!!<<

So, yeah, I pulled into the driveway here at like 3:30 AM DDT (Default Daylight Time) which is either too dam late or too dam early... esp. on top of all the beer and partying and whatnot...

So... WHite Russians?? really?? My favorite hair of the dog. Hit me, please...

you know... a good drunk from the beginning of the day until the end of the day sounds like a decent plan for the weekend.

reasons to drink....

Celebratory Drink: the 15 year old passed 8th grade by the skin of his teeth.

Commiseratory Drink: the 17 year old failed math and english... so he is on the 5 year plan or a basic training style GED program.

Shit yeah. I'm getting antsy now. Starting to think of all the things I need to finish. Just the other day a friend and I were talking about summer. The conversation went something like this:

ME: Its almost Memorial Day
Him: Yeah, I've got a bunch of stuff to do between then and 4th of July. Hardly a moment to spare.
ME: and then it'll be Labor day and summer will be over. Damn, we're already lamenting a lost summer before it starts.
It's going to be alright.
