Spring fever and cocktails…

Today I learned there are scary, scary things in this world. Things that could make a grown man cry. That’s right kids, today I learned about mocktails. And guess what? I don’t approve. Spring Fever is in full effect since NYC temperatures are soaring and no faux cocktail recipe is going to be making its way into this blog.

So here is a no nonsense cocktail named April Rain for your drinking pleasure. Enjoy the weekend! XOXO

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells.  Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope.  Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.”

– Theodore Geisel

I like vodka. It makes my brain cells sleepy though.

“After the first glass of vodka you can accept just about anything of life even your own mysteriousness you think it is nice that a box of matches is purple and brown and is called La Petite and comes from Sweden for they are words that you know and that is all you know words not their feelings or what they mean and you write because you know them not because you understand them because you don’t you are stupid and lazy and will never be great but you do what you know because what else is there?”

– Frank O’Hara

From this, I have learned the following: Vodka + writing = WTF.
