When the kids are away, the grownups play


I can't say I'm at all surprised, but let it be known from this day forward...

Martinis are a bad, bad thing.

Why? Why would anybody do that to perfectly decent alcohol? Mix it with vegetables and stuff? For real, people. Be nice to the alcohol.

You see that smile? That's a "haven't tried it yet" smile. That's what that is.

Okay. Moving on.

We had a lovely day today. A North Carolina day with some of Lisa's friends. We had lunch at a diner, visited a pottery (including a fascinating behind the scenes tour), a cemetery, a covered bridge and some beautiful scenic roads between the stops.

Also? Look! If I ever write a book I have an author photo all ready to go.

There is a fallacy in the quoted question. A Martini is composed primarily of gin.

Gin is not "perfectly good alcohol". Blech.

Vodka is perfectly. good. alcohol.


Excellent pics, and I hope to someday add to my book collection with a book that has the last one on the cover!

I happen to love martinis.

And yes Phydeaux, a martini is made with gin. (Bombay Sapphire please),

but a dirty martini with Chopin vodka is a perfectly lovely thing.

So Jenn, where yours vodka or gin?

Brave Sir Robin January 09, 2008 4:24 PM  

were yours.

I'm not stupid, just an awful typist.

I once decided I had never tried a martini and should. I went and bought glasses, all the ingredients, and got myself ready. I was so offended when hubby said he wouldn't have one. After I tasted it and spat it out he said "Hand the glass over. THAT is why I told you to only make one."
