Megan:

Ha ha, awesome.

Jason:

*Fifteen people are trapped aboard a ship that's going to sink in exactly 20 minutes. Their only chance for survival is the five-person life raft stowed on their vessel. To make matters worse, the waters around the ship are teeming with man-eating sharks, so swiming to safety is out of the question.

A round-trip to the nearest island and back to the boat takes nine minutes on the raft. How many people will live to see dry land...

please answer that

Kit:

I wonder if Frank made it.

jm:

wow its amazing they should exicute order 66 with a lot of clones XD

Phil:

Awesome find. Its always interesting to find older pictures of the way something will work in the future, and then compare it to what actually ended up being the case.

twitter.com/plethorax:

Wow, that wasn't a question I ever expected my mom to ask. Must be a completely, totally different Katya.

Still a great interview. I usually don't give Beefeater much of a chance, but 24 actually sounds nonboring.

twitter.com/robmarais:

What a delightful read on what goes into my next favorite gin. Classic Beefeater has been my mixing gin for eons. I'm intrigued by 24, all the more so by learning of Payne's care and craft in creating it.

sushiesque:

Not that I noticed. But I was getting over a hideous cold and not particularly interested in the beverages.

quinciana:

Katya's Mom just wants to know whether this is the blogger who would know whether gin was served at Fuzzy's wedding in Maine.

Bryana Dunn:

Every doodad is a doohickey. Half of all thingamajigs are doohickeys. Half of all doohickeys are doodads. There are 30 thingamajigs and 20 doodads. No thingamajig is a doodad. How many doohickeys are neither doodads nor thingamajigs?

infinityisalie:

Even as an insufferable teetotaler, I found this a wonderful read.

alphonse:

Beefeater:

Hanky Panky is an amazing cocktail. One of my personal favourites. My recipe of choice looks something like this.

2 PARTS Beefeater London Dry Gin

2 PARTS Italian vermouth

2 DASH Fernet Branca

SHAKE All ingredients over ice

STRAIN Into a chilled cocktail glass

SQUEEZE A freshly cut orange peel on top

Awesome Video Tutorial on the cocktail: www.beefeatergin.com/mixology/video.php?video =Hanky%20Panky

I'm sorry, but Zombies deserve the same rights that you and I have - they can't help that they are zombies!!! Freedom and Justice for ALL!!!!

Narconon Arrowhead:

Thanks for sharing. Great post

naomie:

i love u Celine and keep it going u are the best we all love you*

rich:

"opiate of the masses."

Jeez.

Sarah:

You should know that this blog is one of the first sites to come up in a search for the terms, "harvard square" and "crazy people" (I was seeking a couple specific crazies). While I may not have found what I was looking for, I am digging your blog.

sarah:

this is gay

1minutefilmreview:

Wow!

sushiesque:

Oh, you're quite right. I did not read the fine, italic print.

Icarus does not give me great confidence in their products.

rick:

i'm pretty sure that the propellant is icarus.

Pippa:

A couple are driving home in the dark when the car breaks down, the husband decided to walk to a petrol station for help that was a few miles back, so he locked all the doors,windows and boot. On his return there was a stranger in the car and his wife was dead,there was no damage to the car at all.what happened?????

James Price:

Yeah I found this out the hard way. The people who work at the Library of Congress were none too nice about setting me straight. Most of the people that work there do not want to be bothered, I think. The people that registered me and got me my car (of which there were three) were super nice. But everyone else is either mean or indifferent. I shouldn't have even gotten the reader ID (which you supposedly need to even read anything at the LOC) because I've yet to be stopped and asked for it, even at the "researcher only" entrance! Weak.

semele:

Dear sushiesque - is there any way I can contact you offsite to ask for permission to use one of your photographs?

You can reach me at mirlac@yahoo.com

Thanks so much, and it's a terrific blog.

Kathleen:

Still attracting the crazies, huh? It's nice to know some things never change.

sushiesque:

Erin: I just wish I knew what I was up to.

Obo: Why are they on my doorstep?

obo:

They're fantasy sports league prizes.

Erin:

Clearly you are living a double life.

Jamie:

A man and woman go before a preacher in Pennsylvania to be married, but the preacher says,"I can't marry you two." Why?

sushiesque:

perhaps we could meet up there for a (possibly very cold) picnic?

1. no; I was with my parents, and they had their own agenda.

2. I couldn't find it, but I didn't look too hard. I do hope it has not been felled.

bonus: there was an unusual quantity of big green snails clinging to little rocks in freakish clumps.

Gabriel Mckee:

Awww, jealous-- I love Harkness. I rather want to go back there sometime soon. Two questions:
1. Did you go to Sarge's? I rather want to go back there, too. (It's where I bought my first Ace Doubles!)
2. Did you see the tree with the boob?

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Order a negroni:

Comments

brady

The Negroni is a king among drinks --In fact I believe I got Christine to start drinking thanks to these fellas (it was either that or my rye-based Negroni variation the Red Harvest; eithther way, really...)

Also, I've never met anyone who liked Negronis who sucked. That's not to say you suck if you don't like it, but I've never met anyone who liked the drink who was a raging asshole (as opposed to say Martinis, which are also awesome, but pricks abound in those circles)

Nick

Besides, Campari looks so well in a cut-glass tumbler.

meg

dry vermouth! dry vermouth! good excuse for a side by side taste test. and a slice of (squeezed slightly) orange softens the overall bitter/herbal thing, but it is still delightfully bitter/herbal.

campari = the rhubarb of apertifs.

R.

It's true: I don't know anyone shitty who likes them; although in fairness that's pretty much me, Christine, Brady, and my roommate, that I can think of offhand. I'm kind of glad no one knows what it is, as otherwise you'd get the Martini (and probably Manhattan to a lesser degree) syndrome, where people just order it to be pretentious and knowledgeable rather than because they like it. (At least specify your gin, dudes.) This dry-vermouth option is intriguing; I'm certain I'd enjoy the reduced-vermouth version. The Bitter Campari clown has entwined my heart in his coil of orange peel.

R.

Also, Brady: I sometimes drink just half Campari and half vodka, and maybe a good name for that would be the In Soviet Russia.

brady

no my friend, that should be called "The Baroness" vodka for the eastern europe, campari for the COBRA (ie it's red) optional garnish: a pair of black glasses

unsinn

That works perfectly for me, as I have a Baroness costume. Also negronis=AWEXOME.

unsinn

p.s. IN SOVIET RUSSIA, NEGRONI DRINKS YOU

R.

The Laibach: 2 oz. vodka, garnished with a carpentry nail. Only God can subdue the Laibach; people and things never can.

Frank

I have been drinking negronis since 1958 first at DaVinci restauant in Philadelphia, then around the world. In bad weather the best cure for bronchitis is at least 2 Negronis, garlic bread(lots of fresh chopped garlic) and ministrone soup with lots of parmigiano cheese. Follow with 1 more Negroni and bed rest.
I also have modified the recipe to modern tastes: 1/2 part sweet vermouth / 3/4 part Campari / 1 part gin. orange slice, straight up, San Pelligrino on the side. As my friend Walter would say upon entering the third edition bar in Georgetown in the 80's, "Negronis for my friends." You are right when you say Negroni people are great. Most asshohes sneer at them. I hope I make it to 2008 so I can claim to 60 years of Negronis.

unsinn

Frank, you are my #1 hero. Seriously.

Kit

I wonder if Frank made it.
