Dirty Kermit

October 28, 2011 (Day 213) — Dirty Kermit One of the greatest pastimes of the internet is destroying childhood memories. In many ways, actually. Usually, through something sexual.

Caramel Apple

October 27, 2011 (Dat 212) — Caramel Apple Okay, I’m actually excited to use the Hiram Walker Caramel Apple liqueur as part of a shot.

October 25, 2011 (Day 210) — Luftwaffe This week is shots. Why? Because I’m on vacation. Yes, I’ve written plenty about my personal beef with shots. They truthfully only exist to get you drunk as fast as you can. And that’s not why you drink, or at least that shouldn’t be why you drink. However, […]
