November 1, 2011 (Day 217) — Gingervitis Okay, faithful readers. Pop culture pop quiz. Where does the term “gingervitis” come from? Didn’t get it? Did I not give you enough time to guess. Too bad. Being a wordy blog we’re kind of stuck in time. We’re going to go ahead and give you the answer. […]

Winter Slumber

January 23, 2011 (Day 358) — Winter Slumber Last night we were trying to stay awake to finish up a paint job. Tonight seems like the perfect time to warm up with a delicious cocktail and maybe do a little bit of relaxing around the house. This is a cocktail I’ve been sitting on for […]

The Fourth Estate

January 20, 2011 (Day 355) — The Fourth Estate Was on the road for a little bit today for work, meeting some great people. I really do love my job. But, you always have to pay credence to your past. Being a former gumshoe journalist and eventual editor, there are some things about the journalism industry that […]

Ginger Cognac

January 19, 2011 (Day 354) — Ginger Cognac I’ve only got a little bit of my cognac left, so I figured this evening I’d finish off the bottle and make another cognac-based cocktail. Originally, I had planned to sync this evening’s drink with Edgar Allan Poe’s birthday. However, a long day at work and only […]

Late Night Nip

January 17, 2011 (Day 352) — Late Night Nip It’s a late night. You’ve had long, hard day at work and then a hard night of play. You need to unwind. Get some good music on the record player (or queued up on the iPod). Let your mind settle a bit, stop racing from the […]

Kentucky Peach Tree

January 16, 2011 (Day 351) — Kentucky Peach Tree This Sunday evening I spent going over lines for the upcoming show I’m in, and plunking out some mediocre tunes on my bass. It was a good weekend. A relaxing weekend. I really couldn’t think of anything better than to wrap up the weekend in a […]

Ragged Company

January 13, 2010 (Day 348) — Ragged Company There are some drinks that, by virtue of their names alone, conjure images. To me, tonight’s drink is one of them. Ragged Company is older drink from the south, featuring that lovely base spirit bourbon. So, naturally, seeing the location and the name I can’t help but […]

Banana Crantini

January 12, 2011 (Day 347) — Banana Crantini It was another cold morning today. And by cold, I mean -15 wind chill. However, I refuse to acknowledge that there’s snow on the ground and the wind is ball-shrivelingly freezing. In my mind, I’m on a tropical island somewhere. On a tropical island that needs to get rid […]

Swinging Safari

January 11, 2011 (Day 346) — Swinging Safari I was impressed with the taste of the Amarula the other day, so I figured it was time to try something else out. It was -20 wind chill today in Kansas, so why not pretend we’re somewhere much warmer? How about Africa. And if not Africa, we […]
