OH MY GOOOOOOD + The Booze Fairy came!!

Last night I went to bed, wanting to read a bit on my Kindle before getting z's, and I saw that someone laid it upside down. I couldn't get the screen saver to go away, couldn't get anything to load, and when I turned off the Kindle (it had been turned on unbeknownst to me) the screen saver was STILL THERE. Oh my god, I got burn-in! I've not had it for a full week yet!!! I plugged it in to the charger, with plans to take the battery out and see what I could do in the morning.

It worked this morning. Um... it was just out of juice, is all. *head desk* I tossed and turned all night thinking my new present was busted. I will say this: I've had that thing running since Saturday morning and it didn't need to be charged until Thursday. That's better than my cell phone! (All children have had their lives threatened if they touch my Kindle again without permission. Esp. if they leave it on and UPSIDE DOWN on the screen. Gah!)

This morning was made even better than I expected because the BOOZE FAIRY CAME! (I didn't know there was one!) lynnenne? Your gift came, you sweetheart!



First, this is the outside:



Hahaha: "Do not deliver to an intoxicated person." Which, there's going to be that ONE PERSON that feels compelled to remind me that there is a desease called alcoholism, blah blah blah. Whatever, the idea of someone being drunk enough to NOT go get their own booze by themselves, yet competent enough to go ONLINE and ORDER SOME cracks me up.

And what, pray tell, did the box contain? LIQUID SUNSHINE, my friends.



Milagro Tequila, the best reasonably priced sipping tequila there is. Whoo and a HOOOOO! Oh, Lynne, you are so thoughtful and sweet. (Um, I just realized there's an empty bottle of hootch behind the blue tequila bottle. Um, it's there because I need to carry it to the recycle bin. My house isn't littered with liquor and wine bottles, Honest Engine!

....and now I see why the UPS men aren't allowed to deliver to drunkies. hahahahaha.

Today is school clothes shopping because it's Tax Free Weekend, yay! A whopping 9 bucks per 100 spent in my pocket. That's a movie ticket! :D (Margaritas at mi casa later today, bbs!)

I absolutely LOV Milagro!! And that one kind of bottle that they have with the blown glass agave in it is absolutely beautiful (if a bit out of my price range).

It's my favorite of all the tequilas, honestly. (I mean, until you get into the $100+ bottles, but I don't regularly drink those!)

You know, you can get it at Centennial's chain for a pretty good price. It's better priced than Herradura Silver, which is another good one. (I can't drink Cuervo. Nuh uh.)

The beautiful glass you're left with is pretty awesome, too! :D

Yeah they are! Not to mention that I just have next week and then all children are on PROPER SCHEDULES and BACK IN SCHOOL.

Booze and lounging are to be expected on that glorious Monday. I'll save you a chaise. ;)

Ok I'm annoyed. How come the Booze Fairy has NEVR been to MY house!! Humph!

I didn't know there WAS one!! I think you have to wish on a star while drinking Pinot Grigio. (I mean, that's kind of what I did last night, and then POOF! Booze at my door!) :D

Do you think a pinot noir would work? I MUCH prefer Reds over Whites. If not, I should have a nice Gewurtz in the fridge.

Oh, absolutely! In fact, tomorrow I have a Pinot noir to go with our steaks, and I'll put it to the test then. Who knows, the booze fairy might bring us some scotch! ;)

I used my Sony Digital Reader (ISTK)* at least 4 hours a day while I was in Scotland, and a charge would last me 8-9 days. Woot!!! And now my Sony Digital Reader (ISTK)* has a luscious hot pink leather cover. My precioussss.

You know what? Do you have a lifetime of free wireless?

...


I didn't think so. What was that about your Sony? Something about it blowing donkey balls? Was that it?

(Except I won't deny that a different cover than the black one my Kindle came with would be awesome...) HI BABY! *smooches yer neck*

The upside-down Kindle sounds like something my husband would do. Of course, he'd also forget where he left it, first.

Ohh, Booze-o-gram. That really needs to be a business, no? Speaking of booze, I saw a bottle of "Hideous" in the liquor store the other day, and immediately thought of you, LOL.

I was WRACKED with upset I tell you. Wracked.

Booze-o-gram! What I great idea! They can come dressed like saucy cops or firemen for the ladies, or hot nurses for the ladies. Har.

HIDEOUS. I think I saw that! (But I thought I imagined it OH MY GOD. Have you seen Hypnotik? I wonder if it's any good. It looks like molten plastic.)

No, I haven't see Hypnotik, but I'll try to remember to check out the bottle next time I go! There are some bad-ass bottle designs, aren't there? :)

Ooooh I wanna try some. I haven't seen that kind before but then again, I'm not much for trying new things LOL. And....I haven't went to the big Spec's in Beaumont in a long time.

What's wrong with Cuervo? It makes your lips numb after like 3 shots.
stoney321

I've waxed philosophical about Milagro Silver! It is a fantastic alcohol and you can just sip it, it's so clean and crisp.

...Cuervo is rot gut, that's why. ;) That's the stuff that makes people think tequila is evil - it's not distilled enough and has all kind of junk in it, which is why you feel like crap.

If there's any way that I can convince the people of the world to leave Cuervo alone, I WILL DO IT!! *stands with a fist*

Oh really? Well, I'll def. look for it the next trip to town. Tequila taste tests, wheeeeeeeee!

Rot gut? Hahahaha. It's strong that's for damn sure...but after the first couple of shots it tastes...like your lips are numb.

You're supposed to feel like crap? \o/

Just teasing. I don't get hangovers. *G*

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. If I'd known they weren't allowed to deliver to drunk people, I'd have sent you flowers instead.

ILU, Stoney! ENJOY!

I LOVE YOU MORE!

I dunno, when I was a drunk I could operate the internet, but it was better that I didn't drive.

I fully support other people drinking, though. Have fun!

See, it takes SO MUCH to get me drunk, that by the time I'm actually altered, I wouldn't be able to operate my computer properly.

Not that I do that sort of thing anymore.... :D

Question!

What is the website that allows you to order online and send alcohol?! I've decided that this would probably be the best birthday gift for the boyfriend. Really. And since I probably won't be able to SEE him on his birthday, I might as well send him tons of alcohol to make up for it. Yes, this logic makes sense to me. (I'm not an alcoholic, really. Hee. :P)

I so want to try that tequila! Yum.

Ack! I think I owe you a comment from a previous post... I suck lately. So disorganized am I.

Now: ANSWER! (I totally heard you ask that in Dwight Schrute's voice, incidentally) And having alcohol brought TO YOU is truly the best gift there is, I completely agree with you! :D

The website is winedelight.com and it's freaking awesome. (And Milagro - really, it's just delicious. Herradura Silver is good too, and easier to find locally for most people out of Texas/New Mexico.)

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.
