I'm sick and stuck in bed. I'm bored and feel too crappy to work on my thesis, so my Saturday consisted of a lot of bad television, reading, movies and web surfing. Sam is presently in New Orleans for a guy's weekend and is already suffering from the effects of one too many drinks. Which leads me to my new favorite website: Wired's Cocktails. I know it's very 1950s, but I firmly believe that cocktail hour needs to be revived. When was the last time you got home from work and took a hour just to detox and have a conversation? And what better way to do it than with a cocktail in hand? Should you agree, this is the site for you. I highly recommend the Pegu Cocktail, which a friend introduced to me a few months ago. She calls it the "Anger and Bitter" because if you come home from work angry and bitter, have a couple of these, you'll be feeling as good as new.
I see an "anger and bitter" in my future, just as soon as I can breathe through my nose again. In the meantime, I'll be consuming copious amounts of water, chicken noodle soup and oranges.
