Friday night vodka buzz. Ask me anything.

No red wine tonight. I'm saving what I have for dinner tomorrow night: home-made lasagna!

11. Are you still awake

and are you still sober? I just broke out the goodies.

FYI, Finlandia is a barley-based vodka produced in Finland. Here is the article I found:

19. Too much snow to go out. A layer of ice is on the road out front.

I watched our maintenance crew pass over the street with a front-end loader scraping the road six times but it isn't clear. It's a mess out there.

Just after dawn this morning, as I sat watching Lefty (the 3 footed squirrel) eating dried corn kernels, I remembered my first winters living up here ... I enjoyed sledding a hill nearby. Then years later, the hill was too much work so I went driving around in a 4WD SUV. Now, all I feel like doing is watching Lefty. Funny how the years change things.

20. That's for sure.

I used to love playing in the snow when I was a kid. That was because a kid doesn't have the dread that an adult has that sooner or later he's going to have to drive somewhere in this stuff.

Now, I love snowy days best just sitting by the window, sipping coffee or hot chocolate, either one usually generously fortified with something xxx-proof...

25. My favorite too,

although the lacing can be done by many other spirits as necessary. Any kind of whiskey (Irish my favorite), Cognac or Rum will work as well for me. The spiked hot chocolate seem to give me a stronger buzz than the same amount of spirits. Perhaps the sugar and heat helps it into my blood.

I also make it with half coffee and half chocolate.
