Thirsty Thursday #7: Virtual Happy Hour Link Up

Happy Thursday, party people! It's time for another edition of Thirsty Thursday with myself and the awesome Trish for some virtual happy hour'ing!

You don't have to be a drinker to join. Just post about anything that's going on in your life that you would share during a happy hour with your friends!

Drink of the Day: Shaken Nectarine Vodka Chiller 

What you need:
-1 nectarine
-1 shot of vodka
-some raspberries (optional)
-ice filling the jar about 3/4 of the way
-cold club soda

Peel the nectarine and put in food processor until smooth. Add about 3/4 of the pulpy mixture to the bottom of a mason jar. Add shot of vodka, raspberries, and fill 3/4 of the jar with ice. Top with cold club soda, put lid on and SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE! Enjoy!
So, now that we have our drink, What's on Your Mind?

The Beach
The pull of the end of the school year, and the desire to be 100% totally relaxed is making me daydream about MG's and my trip to the beach coming up in less than a month. It will be time with his family, who I love, and time away from the city, soaking up the sun and having a good time. I can't wait.

Aziz Ansari
I saw his stand-up special last week and it was HILARIOUS. I was laughing out loud all by myself.  I've enjoyed Aziz's comedy before, and find him endlessly entertaining. If you haven't seen the stand-up special on comedy central, look for it in your guide and DVR it. Totally worth it!
MG and I had tried to get tickets to see him perform but they were outrageously expensive. Sad face.

I saw last week while roommate's been gone (I dunno where), that she was getting letters from lawyers. I kinda freaked out thinking that she was getting a lawyer for our living situation, but then another day I saw a ticket from DC police come, and the following day, this:
So, it looks like dumb-dumb got in trouble somehow. Not entirely sure what she did, but if lawyers are soliciting you, it can't be good.  Maybe it's just speeding excessively?
Either way, karma's a B....

Reply All
I'm talking about the feature that allows you to respond to everyone on an email....but people abuse the heck out of this. When my principal, or anyone at work for that matter, sends out an informative email, the PE teacher at my school ALWAYS hits "reply all" and sends out a 'Thank you" response. EVERY time. It's fine when it happens once or twice by accident (we've all done that, realized it, and smacked our own heads), but EVERY time? What makes matters worse is that when he replies all, it has included things like "mines is broken" and "We did are best to beat the 95 degree heat". ARE best??? If you're gonna hit reply-all, or send out a group email, check your grammar before you make it known to everyone involved that you're not intelligent.

"What? Did she just bring up 'zombies' at happy hour?" Yes, I did. Did you all hear about the guy who was caught eating another dude's face, out in public? While they were both naked? And then continued to eat the guy's face AFTER he had gotten shot??? What the heck??? I dunno what kind of Memorial Day shenanigans they were partaking in... I saw that in the news two days ago and had two reactions:  1) VOM....cuz that ISH is nasty, and
2) We need to get the serum that Will Smith made in 'I Am Legend' to stop this zombie outbreak before it gets bad.

I mean, who DOES that????

And, on that ~fun~ note, I'm off to enjoy another day of work before I head off to a real-life happy hour complete with mimosas and mani-pedis. Jealous? You should be! ;) Don't forget to link up!!

Peace out, girlscouts!


  1. I have a coworker who is the same way with the reply all. It drives me crazy!

    I love that your drink is in a mason jar (not to mention the fact that it looks delicious)! I'm going to try to make this next weekend!

  2. Oh reply all, why was that button invented?!?!!?

    YAY beach so exciting! :)

    That drink looks amazeballs yum!


  3. That face eating guy was GROSS. They were on some new form of LSD I heard, and can you imagine how he felt when he came down. Holy ISH. It seriously grosses me out every time I hear about it!!!

  4. UGH the zombie guy. Still freaking me out! Those bath salts will get ya everytime! Haha

  5. Those reply all emails are the worst! We get a lot in our office pointing out names have been misspelled on the company directory.


I LOVE hearing your thoughts and comments--so, make my day and leave me some lovin'!
