1. Russ from Winterset - November 29, 2007

“Girl Drink Drunk”. This skit still makes me GLAR.

2. Mrs. Peel - November 29, 2007

Sobek, I updated with a new South Park Peel.

3. dr4 - November 29, 2007

its addictive isnt it?

4. Michael - November 29, 2007

What happened to our old pal Sandy, anyway? Did she die?

5. Sobek - November 30, 2007

I like this song:

6. sandy burger - November 30, 2007

God, I miss beer so much…

7. sandy burger - November 30, 2007

I’ve decided to stop living a lie. No more excuses, no more pretense.

The truth of the matter is, martinis are girl drinks.

Sure, they taste bad. But that’s not enough. Exhibit A: The shape of the glass. Exhibit B: there are vegetables in the drink. Vegetables, people.

8. sandy burger - November 30, 2007

Some extremely important questions:

Is wine a girl drink?
What about vodka tonics?
How about cider, if it’s the dry kind, rather than the sweet kind?

9. Michael - November 30, 2007

OK, Sandy, I’ll help you out.

Is wine a girl drink?

Most white wines are girl drinks. Especially white Zin and Pinot Grigio. If you drink those and are a guy, you’re gay. Same for any rose. Red wines are OK.

What about vodka tonics?>

Also for chicks and poofters. Men may drink gin and tonic if the temperature is over 74°.

How about cider, if it’s the dry kind, rather than the sweet kind?

Cider is OK, in the fall and early winter. After Christmas, you are a fag if you drink cider.

10. Michael - November 30, 2007

Additional guidance for my old pal Sandy.

Let’s say you find yourself in a situation where, right there in front of you, is a drink you ordered that combines rum and any kind of fruit juice.

Here’s my advice: Look around, and ask yourself two questions. (1) Do I see palm trees? (2) Are flip-flops my current footwear?

If the answer to both of those questions is YES, you may drink the fruity rum beverage. If the answer to either question is NO, you are either female or light in the loafers.

11. sandy burger - November 30, 2007

I don’t own any flip-flops. I have honestly found myself lounging on the beach on a tropical island wearing these shoes, sipping on a Kalua banana shake.

12. Michael - November 30, 2007

I have honestly found myself lounging on the beach on a tropical island wearing these shoes, sipping on a Kalua banana shake.

I always wondered about you. Now I know.

13. sandy burger - November 30, 2007

Well, have a nice weekend, everybody. Off to have girl drinks…

14. Lipstick - November 30, 2007

Fresca makes a peach version. It’s great with vodka.

Oh look, there’s one right in front of me now!

15. BrewFan - November 30, 2007

Lipstick, during the snow storm tomorrow I’m going to finish my email with the cruise questions. I started that thing about a month ago. Where does the time go?

16. Lipstick - November 30, 2007

I don’t know, but it has been going particularly quickly this Fall.

17. See-dub - November 30, 2007

Dear IB Man-Lush Advisor:

Recently, at a pre-dinner reception, I ordered a Manhattan. It’s bourbon and vermouth (red sweet vermouth), but there was a cherry in it.

Am I going to start singing Judy Garland tunes or asking long questions at CNN debates any time soon?

18. IB Man-Lush Advisor - November 30, 2007

Dear See-Dub:

A Manhattan tastes like a gay drink, but it is not really gay. It’s just old. It’s a dork drink. Aside from you, nobody has ordered a Manhattan since 1986, because it is so uncool that you can not possibly get laid if you are spotted with one of those abominations in your hand.

I also note that you omitted the dash of Angostura Bitters from your Manhattan recipe, which makes you some kind of really pathetic überdork, because the bitters are the only redeeming feature of the drink.

You’re welcome.

19. See-dub - November 30, 2007

After they cut out the wormwood, what was the point?

(I prefer Peychaud’s bitters anyway.)

/former bartender

20. See-dub - November 30, 2007

“some kind of really pathetic überdork”

Whatever. Like I’m gonna take that from someone who knows the HTML for an umlaut.

21. Michael - November 30, 2007

Like I’m gonna take that from someone who knows the HTML for an umlaut.

*Michael hangs head in shame; wipes nose on his sleeve*

22. See-dub - November 30, 2007

Dear IB Man-Lush Advisor:

I am someone totally unrelated to that last guy, who obviously has nothing better to do on a Friday night than to hang out on the Internet. I wish to ask you about the “Bloody Mary”.

On the one hand, this drink has salt, pepper, vodka, and tabasco sauce. Those are all fine, health-degrading, manly ingredients.

As against that, the “Bloody Mary” contains vegetable juice and is named after a chick. Please advise: How many of these may I drink before being classified as “bi-curious”?

23. IB Man-Lush Advisor - November 30, 2007

Dear See-Dubya:

Bloody Mary’s are an excellent beverage which you may consume at will and in quantity without impugning your manliness, even if there is a celery stick in it, provided the following two conditions are met:

1. It is a morning beverage. If you order a Bloody Mary after about 1:15 p.m., you are gay.

2. A Bloody Mary must be hot. Don’t shirk with the tabasco sauce, or people will assume you hang out at those notorious I-70 rest areas.

24. Retired Geezer - December 1, 2007

Dave in Texas likes pie.

I made some apple pie for Thanksgiving.

You can drink it:

Cider, apple 1 gal.
Cinnamon Stick 7 sticks
Sugar 4 Cups

Glass to Use
Shot glass
Mixing Instructions

Mix apple juice, apple cider, sugar, and cinnamon sticks together.
Boil until cinnamon sticks lose flavor.
Add Everclear.
Refrigerate.

We have really, really thick fog here tonight. I don’t think I’ve ever seen fog like this in Vegas, although I saw plenty in New Orleans (greatest place in the world for fog) and in Colorado during snowstorms, we got a fog-like effect. I’ve been out driving at 15 miles per hour, enjoying the streetlights and headlamps filtering through the haze.

26. Lipstick - December 1, 2007

Just looked outside — no fog here in ESE Vegas. But the rain finally stopped, so we’ve got that going for us. Which is nice.

27. mesablue - December 1, 2007

Fog in N.O., that would be cool.

Vegas is now on my list of possible places to move. Anything I should know? Avoid?

28. geoff - December 1, 2007

Anything I should know? Avoid?

Well….there’d be Lipstick, Enas, and Sobek, for starters.

29. Lipstick - December 1, 2007

Decided you could resist the showgirls?

Bad: The drivers, allergies from the desert funk, too hot in summer, too cold in winter (compared to southern California).

Good: Great restaurants, great entertainment, no state income tax, mountains all around the city.

30. Lipstick - December 1, 2007

LMAO Geoff, I forgot to mention that!

31. geoff - December 1, 2007

I really, really have to get off my hindquarters and get out to Vegas soon. The kids have been nagging me for a road trip so SoCal. I’ll have to see what I can work up.

32. Dave in Texas - December 1, 2007

If there’s anything better than a breakfast burrito from Taqueria #3 I don’t know what it it. Chorizo, egg and cheese, it’s about the size of Lipstick’s foot. MMMmm.

The burrito I mean. Ahem.

Loves the peach fresca. I do.

And a manhattan is a manly manly drink. Booze, flavored with booze. Right on, right on, right on.

33. Retired Geezer - December 1, 2007

I just woke up to… Fog!

I can’t see my fence which is 100 feet away.

Damn you Sobek.

34. BrewFan - December 1, 2007

Winter storm warnings in the land of Cheese! About 6″ of snow with .5″ of ice on top to look forward to. I’m getting the wood ready for the fireplace in case the electricity goes out.

35. Dave in Texas - December 1, 2007

I’m wearing jeans and a tshirt this morning. It’s a little cool outside.

36. eddiebear - December 1, 2007

38* and raining today n STL. Typical late fall here: nice during the week, rainy and lousy on weekend.

37. geoff - December 1, 2007

We’re getting “light wintry mix” this morning. Tonight I’m going to do the Santa Claus Pub Crawl with some of the extended family. It’ll probably be a mob scene, but it will still be a novel experience.

38. geoff - December 1, 2007

In fact, you can see my test run of the costume here (taken this morning).

39. Retired Geezer - December 1, 2007

Wow, you have your tree up already!

Mrs. Geezer just started bringing out the Nutcrackers. She has bought me a Nutcracker every year since we’ve been married. Sometimes more than one.

We have two of them that are over 3′ tall. Hootie, the Golden Retriever, is afraid of them.

40. Mrs. Peel - December 1, 2007

I’m also wearing jeans and a t-shirt. And I’m a little warm after carrying all those presents inside.

Dave, you’ll be glad to know that despite great temptation, I did NOT slip a note reading “38-30” into one of the longhorn stockings I saw at Target.

Eddie, you can make a degree symbol (º) by holding down the alt key, pressing 167, and releasing the alt key. Assuming you’re on a PC, that is.

Oh, I got a Leg Lamp (from A Christmas Story) stocking for the white elephant gift exchange my family does. heh. My uncle will fight everyone else for it, except that he won’t be there (hunting), so it will be my aunt fighting on his behalf. I found it at Suncoast, one of the overpriced DVD stores in the mall that sadly is often the only store that carries the DVD for which I am looking (1st season of 3rd Rock in this case).

Well, time for homework and studying…catch you guys on the flip side.

41. daveintexas - December 1, 2007

I did NOT slip a note reading “38-30″ into one of the longhorn stockings I saw at Target.

You should have. That would have been funny.

Punk.

42. geoff - December 1, 2007

Suncoast, one of the overpriced DVD stores in the mall

They’ve been in financial trouble over the past year. They’re part of the same company that owns MediaPlay and Sam Goody’s. They closed half their stores, including all three near me.

43. dr4 - December 1, 2007

They’ve been in financial trouble over the past year. They’re part of the same company that owns MediaPlay and Sam Goody’s. They closed half their stores, including all three near me.

Theyre too high. I can get many of the same DVDs at Wal Mart or online at Amazon for two thirds of the price. And a lot of the people who work their are just a couple of piercings away from getting a job at Hot Topic or a leather bar.

44. dr4 - December 1, 2007

and their CDs are very high too. I download music almost exclusively nowdays of course, but a couple of years ago they were still charging between 16 – 20 dollars for a cd. Not just new stuff, but cds that have been out for 20 years.

The days when i will plunk down 20 bucks for a cd with one or two good songs on it are long gone.

These stores are dinosaurs.

45. Mrs. Peel - December 1, 2007

Yeah, they had a bunch of movies on “sale” for higher than the regular price at Target. But Target did not have the 3rd Rock DVDs I wanted, argh.

oh right, homework. Done with your classes yet, geoff?

46. Amish Fears the Albino Brain Chiggers - December 1, 2007

3rd Rock was one of the last good Sitcoms. Loved that show.

I loved the Shatner episode where they pick him up at the airport and he tells them their was “something on the wing” and Dick says “The same thing happened to me!”

47. geoff - December 1, 2007

Done with your classes yet, geoff?

Turned in my last homework assignment yesterday. Just a few lectures and a final yet to go.

Thank God I dropped quantum.

48. Muslihoon - December 1, 2007

I’m starting an MBA in February.

I’m a little apprehensive. I might have to deal with stuff I have no talent with, like numbers. *shudder*

Honestly, when I took the GMAT and saw my quantitative score, I almost cried. It was that bad.

49. geoff - December 2, 2007

Just got back from the Santa Claus Pub Crawl. What a gas! I’ll definitely be going next year.

50. Mrs. Peel - December 2, 2007

You can email me if you need help, Mus. Also, if you have to take “business calculus,” definitely feel free to email me. That is a course in which you learn the highlights of Cal 1-3 in one semester. It can be pretty difficult because you’re so rushed, but on the bright side, the exams are easy, because the prof typically doesn’t expect you to be able to do more than regurgitate the homework problems. (At least, that was my sister’s experience.)

Sounds great, geoff. I have one homework assignment, one exam, and possibly a final left. yay!

51. Michael - December 2, 2007

Just got back from the Santa Claus Pub Crawl. What a gas!

You’re Jumpin’ Jack Flash.

52. geoff - December 2, 2007

Well, you know I was born in a crossfire hurricane.

But then, who isn’t?

53. Muslihoon - December 2, 2007

Thanks, Mrs. Peel!
