Recipe: Vodka Icee


Ok, so this is more of a, "I realised I haven't been posting much in the wake of preparing to move (I wish someone had come to my sale, good grief) but I threw some stuff in a blender tonight instead of finishing a sakubun so I think I'll continue procrastinating and share it with you" deal than a real recipe.

I'm also sitting at my computer desk in the middle of my living room like a foot away from my TV typing this. It's really convenient, I like it. When I have my own place I think I'll move my furniture to random rooms now and again just to provoke thought or throw people for a loop. It's too bad the cords shut in the magnetic door would give away a TV or computer in the fridge.

Stay tuned for a review of the New York issue of V magazine and a review of the Birthday Massacre concert I went to last month and thought I made a post about but actually didn't. :D

To serve two: Put about 3 cups of ice, Pomegramate Smirnoff and Ikea Lingonberry Concentrate to taste, 1/2 cup sugar and 1 Wild Cherry Icee Freeze cup in the blender until frothy.

Lizard

These baby lizards are so cute and easy to catch. He just chilled out in my hand for a while so I admired how neat his scales and colouration are close-up. Zoom in and see for yourself!
"Hurrrr."

Giftage

So I've recently received some fabulous early birthday presents from a couple of lovely friends that I want everyone to see, and in other news, everyone should now be able to comment on my posts. Hopefully I don't get any spam or flames or flaming spam.. which may or may not be a Hawaiian dish or covered in rhinestones.

I've gotten to see Alexandra twice this summer (possibly a new record).

 Smiling's actually out this year. Matching coral/salmon shirts are in. But not the genetically modified salmon. And the salmon can't be smiling, either.
She brought me this pleasantly large statement-making Katrina necklace from her trip to Guadalajara.
And Carl got me these glorious Betsey crab earrings and ring! They were half off (suffer, major retailers, suffer!) and I was going to re-max-out my credit card for them as my love of crustaceans is undying, but he went ahead and got them so he wouldn't forget my birthday. I love Carl. The end.
