Sprocket Ink - You Can Find Me Here.

Something great has taken place here, friends. And I'm not just talking about the return of McDonald's Filet-O-Fish (aka "Catholic Friday"). A blogger by the name of Jerrod (from The Yellow Factor) started up a new blogging site called Sprocket Ink and asked me to one be of the contibuting editors. When I first got the invite I was totally not surprised at all and patted myself on the back for climbing my way up the blogging ladder. But my self-admiration was quickly replaced by flattery and excitement over the idea that someone else (who's actually not a family member) thinks my writing is noteworthy.

So, starting tomorrow I will be featured HERE every Tuesday at 11am PST (I use "at" loosely) and Thursday at 8am. (Heads up- tomorrow's entry is titled "Looking to Start a New Career? Let's Talk.") Please take a few minutes to check out all the great bloggers involved in this project- their bios can be found here. And feel free (please.please.please.) to add Sprocket Ink to your regular blog visits.


Since there was cause to celebrate tonight (Ahem- see above), Boyfriend and I blessed the night with alcoholic beverages and video games. -Whiskey Sours and Super Mario, to be exact. Since I'm sure most of my readers enjoy Mario and drinking as much as I do, I'm going to share our recipe for Whiskey Sour and hope you rejoice as well. (Make them, they're good. I downed two in like eight minutes.) (Just kidding, Mom.) (No seriously.)


WHISKEY SOUR


Ingredients:
2 oz. bourbon
1 oz lime juice
1 oz. lemon juice
1 tbsp sugar
Orange slice
Maraschino cherry


Directions:
In a rocks glass combine bourbon, lime juice, lemon juice, and sugar. Stir until dissolved. Add ice cubes. Garnish with orange and cherry.


Happy drinking, and don't forget to check out Sprocket Ink!

This just in: I DO like drinking and Piping (that was the best Mario reference verb I could come up with. Sorrs.)!

I found you from Sprocket, which I found from Becky (Steammeup,kid) because I do whatever she tells me and she told everyone to go to sprocket. She also commented to me once to rig up a "Caleb-crow" to scare my cat into a diet, but I'm not doing that. You have to draw the line somewhere.

Okay, I'm going to go stalk your blog for a while. Top 5 popular posts, here I come!

What? WHAT?! Word verification???

Sigh.

Really?

Caleb

PS You literally look nothing like Margaret Cho.

Alright already! Now I have to visit yet another blog (willingly), make whisky sours toot sweet (willingly), and still hankering for the tacos which will be made less sweet or tweet sweet or whatever the hell I'm trying to say.

Believe it or not, I'm mostly Swedish. My momma learned how to make tacos from a woman she worked with. This wonderful woman sent home hot salsa for us and we had to dilute it 10-1 for our limited palette swedish tongues. We are wimps.

Roxanne and Lorraine said...

All I'm missing is the maraschino cherry. I don't even like those, so I guess I'm having whiskey sours this weekend... at home... alone. :p
