Blue skies. And not oppressively hot. This is new for North Texas, recently. Hooray! Kids are having sleepovers this weekend, AWAY, so Mr. S and I will be enjoying a Sci-Fi Friday, by which I mean we will have either a viewing of the crew of the Nostramo (Alien and Aliens), or add a Schwartzenegarian element to the night: Total Recall, or perhaps Terminator. Woot! MAYBE ALL OF THEM.

Maybe not, as my allergies are kicking in and the Tylenol: Sinus knocks me out. But. MOVIES. Hoorah!

Also, I have discovered the recipe for the BEST COCKTAIL EVER. Seriously. I give you:

1 oz. cranberry Vodka
1 oz. Triple Sec
squeeze of a lime wedge
splash of white cranberry juice

Shake with ice, strain into a glass. Slice a strawberry vertically, float on top of cocktail. Pretty and YUMMY. Not so much of a tang as some Cosmos have, also. Sometimes I like tang, sometimes I can't stand it. Heh. I said tang. [/twelve]

In other news, my little sis performed stand-up for the first time last night and kicked booty. Woot! Older sis is kicking butt at her business and getting promotions. Woot! I am still in my robe. Hooray!! But my teeth are brushed. *checks* Crap. Okay, fixing that, then off to the store and out into BLUE SKIES. *grins beatifically at you ALL*

Yay for sunny happy days! ::dances you::

Yay for being back in CO! I read about your mom - that's really neat that you two can share writing, now. Whether or not she goes any further, she'll have more of an appreciation for what you do, don't you think?

And go hit the store, mix up the drink, and tell me what you think!

::hugs you tight::

I am a lame ass, and am carrying around a box for you in my car, filled with W. MA goodness.

Hopefully I can get my act together and mail the thing. ::rolls eyes::

And hopefully some maple syrup.

And perhaps a few maple leaves and for effect, a few twigs.

Ooooh! Fun at the stoney house. I'm glad you and Mr. Stoney will get to have an evening alone with governator.

After a week of rain here, it is soooo hot! I need to mow!
Aug. 19th, 2005 01:18 pm (UTC)
MOW!! Mow reeeeeaallly late tonight or super early in the morning. No need to pass out from yard work, you know?

Apparently, we may NOT have a Schwartzeneggarian night, as it seems Alien and Aliens is winning. Mostly. Hee!!

SCHOOL!! Almost starting for you, yeah? I should probably check my flist more...
Aug. 19th, 2005 11:10 pm (UTC)
Yes, check your flist. My last two posts were about starting school (Monday). I'll mow Saturday morning early (I have to mow my parents' lawn too).

You are so Emmett. I love you.

The day here has been strange and offputting! It's a full moon out tonight, and everyone's on edge. I had to go to my doctor's office today because I needed a refill on my prescription, and when I got in he was all, omg what's wrong? trouble breathing? chest pains? WHERE ARE YOU BLEEDING? And then I told him I was just there for pills, and he was all wheeeew. okay then. Hee. I love my doctor.

*squishes you*
Aug. 19th, 2005 01:47 pm (UTC)
let's try this again, shall we? *sheepish grin*
FULL MOON. Yes. Makes folks (including me) crazy.

Now, TRUST me on the cocktails. I know of which I speak. MAKE THE DRINK. So grood.

*is squished, flails with joy*

Aug. 19th, 2005 01:55 pm (UTC)
you are the sexiest sheep ever.
I trust you, Stoney! But white cranberry juice will be hard to get. Hrm! I will attempt. FOR YOU.
Aug. 19th, 2005 02:07 pm (UTC)
No! See, it's EASY! Ocean Spray makes it in many forms: huge jug, mini-juice boxes, etc. IT'S EVERYWHERE!! Trust mama. UNLESS YOU LIVE IN A COMMUNIST COUNTRY. Or, you know, it's not available there yet... *frets*
Aug. 19th, 2005 02:13 pm (UTC)
We don't have cheez-its, Stoney.


i love you

Mmmmm...another drink recipe. After that margarita, I'll try anything you post *g*

Hey, it's a blue-sky'ed sun shiny day here too! And I--am going to work, but still . . . pretty! AND if all goes well, I won't have to wear the horrible new work shirt that makes me look like a potato that has joined an adult bowling leauge.

When I needs my sci fi I also like to indulge in the X-men. Dear Hugh is quite pretty (in a many way, of course). However, anything Arnie makes my day. Even Jingle All the Way, which is really quite crappy, but so much fun to watch. Or, OOH, Commando! "Let off some steam, Vinne!" Hee. Of course, not strictly sci fi. On second thought, go with Total Recall or Terminator or Alien and Aliens. Hmmm...maybe I'll put Jingle All the Way on in the store tonight . . . *eg*

*sings with you* I love that song!
Aug. 19th, 2005 05:50 pm (UTC)
mmmmmm...that was a marvelous cocktail.

::sways slightly::

I think I'll go finish off the shaker.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
