New York weekend!

I will eat a HOT DOG!

I leave you with this Farmer's thought for the day: if frankfurters and hamburgers are all-American foods, why are they named after cities in Germany?

These are the sorts of things Jeremy emails me at work. Pictures of Germans studing plasticised corpses.

Oddly enough, I've felt like that split open person many a time....

So.... I'm thinking about drinks for this party I'm having next saturday. I mean obviously you need a bottle of gin and a bottle vodka. And you let people bring beer as they will, but I'm feeling like I might want to have something already mixed up in large quantities. Like say margaritas or long island ice tea. I mentioned this musing to Dumb Bastard and he said that back in Wisconsin they drink something charmingly called "Moose Piss." Apparently it's named for the way it looks, not the way it tastes. Here's the recipe:

1 qt Vodka
1 qt Light rum
1 qt Dark rum
1 qt Whiskey
1 qt Peach schnapps
1 gal Sprite (or similar soda)
1 gal Lemonade
Mixing instructions:
Get a clean five gallon pail and mix all the ingredients together with a ladle. Serve with or without a little ice.

Any other suggestions???

All right, don't make too big a deal out of this, but I let Bad Friend Leslie make me go see Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood this weekend. She was just all, "Colin won't go with me and I don't have any other close girlfriends!" So, there you go. I did it. I'm not proud, but I went.

Sandra Bullock was typically plastic. Not bad plastic, just plastic. Ellen Burstyn, of course, kicked all kinds of ass. Watching her as the pill-popping drunk in this film though really made me long to see her in Requiem for a Dream again. Or Tropic of Cancer for that matter. Hell, even the Exorcist.

Other than that, not much happening. Drank margaritas after the movie. Spent sunday over Jeremy's apartment, eating corn and trying to sink the 18th hole on Super Monkey Golf.

So, what did you do on your weekend?
