In Which I Answer Your Questions

Q: Why do i feel so good after a martini?

A: Because martinis are the most perfect drink that has ever been created. It’s like sipping on a rainbow in the forest just after a brief  spring storm. It is proof that our lives have meaning. It is proof that I need a damn drink. 

Of course, if you’ve been drinking this kind of martini – and then I think you know why you feel so good. Pervert.

    For years, while living in Chicago, I tried to promote the Parmesan Martini, to no avail. I mean, if you’re throwing blue fucking cheese in a drink, why not create some pesto and join to the big leagues? I love cheese, I love salty and I love drinking. Make it work people!

    (Other than the recent bacon-infused vodka craze I’ve found nothing to come close to this attempt. Let’s fix this…brain storming session anyone?)

      I will be thinking about this. I love blue-cheese stuffed olives in my gin martinis – not sure about pesto martinis – but I’ll be thinking about this. Might be better with a vodka martini than a gin one…..hmmmm…..

    Hilarious. I need to get on the martini boat. I’ve wanted to ever since Angie Jolie’s role in Playing By Heart. I think Emily’s drink sounds good – is that wrong?

    I’m really not a martini drinker but maybe I’ll have to have you make me a couple to change my mind.

      The architect also prefers the cosmo types of martinis, although I’m a bit more hardcore – gin in a class for me!

      I still haven’t had a martini. Life is no fair!

      Sorry ’bout your Saturday work – you probably needed a drink more than I did.
