Works every time!

So, at some point along her spiritual journey, my crazy ex-roommate decided God hated alcohol. Which is why she is going to end up drowning in a vat of vodka someday - karma is a bitch. My new roommates, though, love to drink. And not only that, one of my new roommates used to be a real bartender! I am learning how to make all sorts of fancy drinks, like margaritas.



What’s that you say? Margaritas aren’t fancy? Don’t forget that I grew up in Milwaukee and thought that Colt 45 worked every time and the only thing worth doing with a can of Bud was boiling brats. My tastes have evolved somewhat over time - meaning Lienie’s has replaced Colt 45, but I still only use Bud to make killer brats.




Anyway, having my very own personal former bartender is incredible. We were watching Grey’s Anatomy last night and I had several of the most deliciously yummy margaritas ever. I cannot drink the blended ones because I suck them down way too fast and get a brain freeze that rivals any of the three migraines I’ve ever had. Plus, they are just too damn sweet and I end up with a tummy ache if I drink enough of them to get drunk. Normally, I find margaritas on the rocks either too salty, or too strong, but the ones consumed last night were the perfect Goldilocks blend of ingredients.

As for Grey’s Anatomy, I was a little bit disappointed with it. SPOILER ALERT: I mean, of course they weren’t going to kill off the main character, but to have her wake up after not having a heartbeat for over an hour and start talking seems a little, well, stupid. Even for tv. Plus, Izzy is really pissing me off. She needs to get off her soapbox and remember that she almost married a man she hardly knew just last season – and she had never even seen him outside of the damn hospital! Don’t get me wrong, I loved Denny’s character, but come on! He was only in, like, 6 episodes. Quit whining about him! Callie has been around for quite awhile now and I’ve always liked her. If I were George, I would have stopped talking to Izzy way back in season 1 when she won’t even him let take a shower in peace. You can’t tell me that there aren’t at least two full bathrooms in the gi-normous house they were living in.

But I am still sad sweeps are over now. I loved my Thursday night routine. It’s good timing though since I am going to be crazy busy at work the next six weeks. Hopefully new episodes won’t come out until April.
