Gravity Rides Everything

Quick question: How many entries have I had where it rained or was raining? I think I lost count.

It's raining. Again. For the eleventy billionth time this summer.

You know what though? For all my bitching, I actually like rain. I think it's pretty, especially when everything's all green and fresh-looking, like the city had been put through the wash cycle with Tide with Bleach. I just like it a little better when we've had nothing but sunshine and warmth for at least a week.

I'm bored. Earlier I came up with the awesome idea of inventing my own drink. I want to call it The Desperado (you have to say it like there's italics automatically)...It just sounds cool. I have no idea what liquor I'd actually put in it, but I think with a name like The Desperado, it should taste badass, with a slight hint of danger and loneliness. It'd be a drink that Dirty Harry would drink. It'd be something Chuck Norris would order after kicking some ass. It'd be the epitome of awesomeness.

It should have its own aftershave.


  1. THE DESPERADO sounds like it needs whisky in it or maybe some super cheap and strong tequila, try a few shots of that and Im sure you will get inspired!!!

    Happy bartending!

  2. OOh, a drink with such a name can only be accompanied by badassness!

    As a Mexican, I must say, it sounds like something we would order by the cart. I suggest adding something like tequila or dos equis, just to appeal to the demographic :)

  3. The Desperado, nice! Tequila sounds badass, but I personally would add some vodka(I don't think it's a girly liquor) and powdered black-pepper. Maybe a little soy-sauce as well.

  4. I just stumbled upon your blog and I knew right away that I would like you! It may have been the picture of Chuck Norris. Though I think Chuck Norris is cool, my husband aspires to be him. We even put Chuck Norris in our wedding vows. I think we said something along the lines of "I will always remind you that you are as awesome as Chuck Norris."


    I love reading your blog and look forward to reading more!


I'm a shallow person, so I love to hear what you have to say about me...Lavish me with praise, or rip me up and make me want to cry.
