Day 08 - Post a picture from your commute



Heh heh.

So this is a picture from my commute yesterday. I was driving up with my friends Ryan and Colleen (pictured above) to see the musical "In the Heights."

One thing to know about Colleen: she can fall asleep anywhere.

One thing to know about me: I will take pictures of you when you fall asleep anywhere. This brings joy to my life, and I'm not sure why, other than that I have a very weird sense of humor. But here's the deal--if you fall asleep in a public place, why shouldn't I be able to take your picture and post it on the internet? Yes, I'm a tinge bit evil.

In other unrelated news, I made a Pimm's cup beverage a couple days ago. I had to share this so Jax could be proud of me. Let me give some background: Pimm's is a delicious drink that Jackie introduced me to when I met her in London. I fell in love instantly. Here is the recipe I found, although I'm sure there are a lot of variations:

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup Pimm's No. 1
  • 2 cups ginger ale, chilled
  • 1 1/3 cups sparkling water, chilled
  • 4 lemon slices
  • 1 medium cucumber, halved lengthwise and cut into 4 spears

Preparation


Fill 4 tall (12-ounce) glasses with ice cubes.

Pour 3 tablespoons Pimm's into each glass. Pour 1/2 cup ginger ale and 1/3 cup sparkling water into each glass; stir to combine. Garnish each serving with 1 lemon slice and 1 cucumber spear. Serve immediately.

Lastly, I wanted to talk about the insaneness that was Inception. This movie was just WOW. How do I explain it? It's frustrating...but in a good way. It is a never-ending labyrinth of mysteries and hypotheses, all tested and re-tested in your mind to try to figure out that darn ending! Oh the ending!!!!

Go see it and tell me what you think. This movie still haunts me a little, and I'll give it: ★★★½

Take off a half for the frustration of it all!! One star is definitely in there because it's Leo and Joseph Gordon Levitt in one movie. Oh yeah!!

  1. Haha, I am SO proud of you, girl :D

    But for it to be a real Pimm's this is the recipe you should follow:
    Pour a measure of Pimm's per person into a jug. Top up with lemonade. Chop up some slices of cucumber, halve some strawberries, cut some lemon and orange slices, and tear up a handful of mint. Mix them into the drink and give it a little mix. Consume.

    It ain't Pimm's if there aren't strawberries, mint and cucumber! ;) Well done - ultimate summer drink!

    PS: LOVE that photo of Colleen, ha!
