Well, whatever. I’m not much of an updater. Mostly I’ve been doing this:
IE, making myself fancy drinks at home, taking pictures of them, and writing too-wordy-for-Tumblr posts on how they came together. Actually, I’ve been enjoying it a bunch. Writing about food and drinks is way more pleasurable than thinking about that novel that’s not going to write itself.
Please check it out. The Mason Jar Shaker** tumblr was basically me looking up and tinkering with the recipes from posh bars so that I can be a fancier hermit. I’m sure many of you can sympathize. The fact that I live down the street from a Goodwill thrift store that always had a plethora of natty drinkware is key.
But I do have to change the name. Because it is misleading. I originally chose “Mason Jar Shaker” because I’d lost my cocktail shaker and was making all these drinks in empty canning jars. But then I went out and got a new shaker. And I don’t even serve the drinks (that is, to myself) in canning jars, cause how twee is that?
Any suggestions? Best name gets a jar full of delicious infused booze from me*
*Over 21 only. May not be valid if you live somewhere I can’t get to.
**UPDATE: So I went ahead and renamed it without any suggestions. As the above link illustrates, the page is now called “Great Boo’s Up.” If you do not get this reference, you are not nerdy enough. Didn’t think THAT was possible, eh?
