I've been snapped by the Google bus! Hahahaha!
Yep, you see right, that's ol' Johnny boy coppin' a smoke at The Stone. I've finally made it! Thanks to Scott Lovenberg for the tip!
Ah, the lazy days of summer; a time for beaches, bikinis, blockbusters and booze. Once, in hoary day of yore, Man mixed his liquor with lime juice, and it was Good. He called out in triumph to the birds and beasts and crawling things, and bellowed "REFRESHMENT, I NAME THEE MARGARITA!" and the men and women saw that it was good, and did party down. In this spirit, our two contenders take the ring: in the green shorts, weighing in at 8% ABV, we have the crowd favorite BUD LIGHT LIME-A-RITA! Wearing the blue Hawaiian print shorts, we have CAYMAN JACK MARGARITA weighing in at 5.8% ABV, trying for the title. Let's get ready to guzzle!
Cayman Jack's offering, "Arguably the world's most refreshing margarita," is a "premium malt beverage with natural flavors," a "hand-crafted" beverage enjoying "100% Blue agave nectar, real cane sugar and natural lime juice." Cayman Jack, it seems, spends his time "searching the world seeking perfection." He may have found it, too, as this actually tastes like a margarita. Not the best marg you've ever had, but I guess all those nicey-nice Millenial-friendly ingredients really make a difference. I might actually get this on purpose, although the font for "hand-crafted" makes me gag.
Budweiser, or rather "Bud Light Lime" brings its signature "Lime-A-Rita," a "margarita with a twist," a "malt beverage with natural flavors and caramel color added," it "contains alcohol" and we are encouraged to "try it over ice!" It tastes like bad sour mix with some black licorice-flavored candies dissolved in it. Or, maybe it's closer to a plastic bag full of melted green Jolly Ranchers that someone spilled some ethanol into. Not too good, really, (especially compared to Mr. Jack's offering) but at a Millenial-friendly 8% ABV, it'll get you fucked up.
Both of these cost about one dollar. In a pinch, Cayman Jack is actually an O.K. replacement for a refreshing Marg. The heavy-hitting Lime-A-Rita not good, but is about 30% more economical booze for your dollar. In most of America, though, you can buy the tequila, lime, triple sec, and sugar to make your own, actually good Margarita at the same place that sells these little guys. No Excuses.
I've been wanting to try may hand at making some more pants, and Bev let me borrow one of her sewing machines and a bunch of old jeans. Friggin' like 7 hours later, I've got a big ol' denim Salwar! Thanks to this site for the directions. Harry Potter marathon in the background makes it easy to while away the day on a goofy project like this. Love those magical little bastards!
Ideally, this would have taken much less time; the pattern is super simple. However, I had to cut 3 pairs of jeans apart to make enough fabric to follow the pattern. When I finally finished them, I stepped into them and resembled a cruel caricature of a weight-loss ad. I de-huged them by about 10 inches until they became appropriately large enough for a pair of big clowny pants. Grommets and a drawstring, and Viola! Another day closer to death. Probably better for cooler weather, but I'll give them a shot out here in the prairie! It was SEW much fun! Even more than it may SEAM.
