Farewell, Sweet Prince

I had to say goodbye to someone very important to me last night.

I had to take Sasha Baron Cohen off my List of Five*. It's one of the harder things I've had to do. Natural childbirth? PFFT.

*List of Five: the five celebrities you get to have sexual relations with when married.

When even Jon Stewart is uncomfortable with your shenanigans, that means you're obnoxious in real life. Even though SBC is so, so smart, and clever...I think he might actually be a crazy person in real life (in the bad way.)

So now I have a Wild Card to fill.


1. Viggo (always)
2. Daniel Craig
3. Sophia Vergara
4. Darren Criss
5. WILD CARD. Probably to be filled by Javier Bardem. (That's what she said! As she pointed at herself!) Or Jeff Goldblum. (I can't help it.)


Note: I am not actually a crazy person, and I do not believe that I will actually cross anyone off my list. Le sigh. ;D

ION, I decided yesterday that there is NO WAY I would put a Forum on HDJM. People just can't help themselves and turn into pedants and a-holes too quickly, and I am determined to keep HDJM a place of fun and smiles. I mean... there's an entire internet full of places to bitch about things, right? So. *hands*

Also, I've been beta reading flaming_muse's latest fic and I get CHILLS thinking about how wonderful it is. And it's not even finished yet. Oh, is it going to be a treat.

Finally, a website I subscribe to sent me a cocktail recipe that I am dying to try out (and play with.)

The Redefined Daisy

1 1/2 oz base spirit (gin, tequila, rum, vodka)
3/4 oz cointreau OR elderflower liqueur (I'm seeing this everywhere. I approve)
3/4 oz fresh lemon juice (1 medium lemon)
2 barspoons of grenadine or raspberry syrup (that would be awesome with the cointreau)
soda water
fresh mint and raspberries for garnish.

Ice cubes in a shaker with first 4 ingredients, shake well, pour in glass, top with soda, swirl, and put in garnish. NOM. Hello, poolside delight. (My choices would be silver tequila, cointreau and raspberry syrup. Which...makes it almost a margarita, I know. But lemon isn't the same as lime. And I might swap out the soda water with mineral water. In fact, that's pretty much how I'm going to make one this weekend. O_O YAY PLANS.) :D

Other combo I'd use: light rum, elderflower liqueur, grenadine. And mineral water. I just don't want the calories, one, and I don't want the acerbic taste of soda water, typically.

Yeah, SBC seems to have hit in the crazy juice and has no intention of stopping. He makes me embarrassed for him.

I need to have more recipes using grenadine. I made some last summer and realized I only need two or three Manhattans a year! The Shirley Temples have been delicious, but, again, only two or three a year. This refined Daisy sounds like I could drink it all Summer long.


I was concerned about how easily a forum could devolve.

I had to turn off the Daily Show last night. =/

Doesn't that recipe look delicious?!

I like the idea in principle, but let's be honest: people on the net like to Be Right and make others see things their way. *shrug* Better to know before I set one up.


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.
