a tale of two cocktails

the perfect winter cocktail to keep your friends and family drunk, happy, and begging for more: this pear ginger fizz cocktail (from Style Me Pretty's Thanksgiving guide) is simple, delicious, and a crowd pleaser -- at least it was at my Thanksgiving.

the perfect pop culture cocktail to keep you constantly looking over your shoulder and waking up at 4 a.m. due to  nightmares: Homeland is amazing, The Walking Dead is addictive (even though the constant, redundant arguing makes me want to tear my hair out), and Gone Girl is so twisty you'll get carsick. But I don't recommend watching/reading all of these at the same time to anyone. Small doses. Zombie dreams are bad. Abduction dreams are bad. Terrorist dreams are bad. Together? I don't even want to talk about it.


  1. I followed a link on YHL and found you! You are funny and I'm staying.

    Hellllo from South Africa!

  2. That beverage sounds delicious! Probably won't be able to wait for a special occasion to try it, either!

  3. I just can't get on board with zombies. I read World War Z and I really enjoyed it, but beyond that I am just a WUS. (IS WUS SPELLED WITH ONE S LIKE PUS, OR WUSS?) I realllllly want to read Gone Girl. I'm like 65o7347387643 on the waiting list at the library and I refuse to buy it until it's available in paperback.

  4. I started "Gone Girl" last week...i know its a shocker that now that book club is over i am actually reading books!

    This book is really good. First you hate him, then you kind of hate her but deep down you think, "i would totally do that"
