I think I've gotten about 2 night's sleep in the past week. I may have finally erased that sleep debt but we'll see.
Finished up with bartending class for the most part. Just one alcohol awareness next Friday, and that's not even required, strictly speaking. It'll give me favorable status so I'm going for it, but I am going to start the hunt before then. On Monday I get the referral list. My teacher was singing my praises so I hope I can turn that into some cold, hard cash. For one of the last classes we had to come up with a flavored martini and name it. Here's my creation:
2 1/2 oz vodka
1/2 oz amaretto
shaken over ice, strained into a chilled martini glass, then topped off with a splash of bitters.
It's called an arsenic, and it looks really cool in a glass but I've no other clues about it because we didn't make them with actual booze at school. It gets it's name because a drink laced with arsenic will taste a bit like bitter almonds, amaretto being an almond-flavored liqueur. I'm not quite sure who would order a drink with a name like that, but it'd be funny as hell to have it sent to someone.
Jason's been putting out excellent stuff lately. His last post makes it near the top of "damn I wish I'd written that" list. It should be required reading, to borrow a phrase from Pia, who herself has put forth a gem after some cheerful exploitation of an infamous conversation between myself and Cooper of Wonderland (or, you know, Not).
Unintentionally broke a promise I made to no one in particular. One thing I keep forgetting is that one of the prime bullshit assumptions in life, right up there with thinking that no one will find out, is that any given thing is over. Which isn't to say anything negative came of it. Just wish I'd have prepared.
Why yes, I am being cryptic. Thanks for noticing.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot. MIZ BOHEMIA IN THE FLESH ON YOUTUBE! And unlike me, she's appearing as herself! I may have to straight-out steal this idea so sorry in advance if I do, Miz. Especially since audioblogger is going belly-up in November.
Is that it? I think so. If not, you'll hear from me again. Soon. I need to get back on this. Though I can tell you this much. When I land a bartending gig I will likely post after each shift for a while.
