And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Me too.:smileytongue: That's why I mentioned it in the post. For some reason it keeps playing in my head. I usually got a kick out of it whenever I heard it, but it's not like I listenned to it frequently. Now, I have a constant rewind echoing thru my brain. I'm sorry I shared my nightmare--please forgive me. Plus, I'm trying to type on my husband's laptop. He keeps checking in to see if I've broken it yet.

Word to the wise girls--always stick with some type of classic music when posting on a public board. (I prefer classic rock and classic R&B.) Anything else and you date yourself or reveal a penchant for trite, pop music.:smileytongue:That said, a little metal is never a bad thing! I hear strains of Kiss as I type. Not to much mind you, I like to avoid a headache.:smileyhappy:

 

P.S.. Anyone who suggest Barry Mallow or Disco is automatically put on Guilty Pleasure's membership watch list!:smileyvery-happy:

Love all the music playing here and the steamy photos. I love all genres of music from classic rock, rap, country, classical and yep even Neil Diamond.

 

I am sharing a drink with all my friends here tonight. It is called a "Panty Ripper":smileytongue:

 

1 glass filled with ice

2 shots of coconut rum

fill remaining glass with pineapple juice

add 1 slice of lime

 

This is a wonderful drink for a warm spring/summer night. It is a favorite of the locals in Belize.

I had the barkeeper make you all one...Enjoy!

What is in a Ceasar? I will try one.

 


LOL!  The Canadian version of a Bloody Mary.  :-)  Except instead of tomato juice, we make ours with clamato juice...as in a mixture of tomato and clam juice.  May sound gross to some but delicious to others!!  :-D  You rim the glass with celery salt, add some worcestershire sauce and tobasco...a slice of lime and a stick of celery.  Oh and a shot of vodka.  Mmmmmmmm  ~slurp~

Instructions
  • iconRim a tall cocktail glass with the lime wedge and then Celery salt, fill with ice. Pour in Vodka and Clamato juice. Add 3 dashes each of Worcestershire and Tabasco sauce. Garnish with crisp Celery stalk and Lime wedge.

    Sometimes referred to as a "Bloody Ceasar", the Ceasar was created in Canada and apparently remains predminantly a Canadian drink. Although the drink is similar to a "Bloody Mary", the Clamato juice gives it a completely (and much better) taste. Seafood restaurants in Canada often add a Shrimp or Prawn as an additional garnish.

Here is our drink specialty from SciFiCanuck.
I hope this recipe is correct.

Hey that is correct!!  :-)  So you can either start with regular clamato and spice it up as you like or get the extra spicy and really make it smokin' hot!  I usually only have a drop of tobasco but some places make it really spicy.  I love it especially with the shrimp...  mmm!  As well some places like to add a pickled asparagus or pickled bean.  :-)  There is also a circular ring someone invented especially to use with the celery salt to salt the rim.   I had a Bloody Mary once when I was in Vegas...it was double the price and absolutely terrible!!!

Hello Susan. There's a horror movie you should probably not watch if you dislike bat caves...I believe it's called The Descent. The monsters in the movie weren't exactly as utterly terrifying and spontaneous-insanity-causing as batsquatches...but they were rather uncomfortably close.

 

But it did have a happy ending. Everyone receives cake! ^_^

Susan,

I can't give out the lavender drink recipe because it is your recipe. Part of your 3 drink Susan specials. You must have it tucked away in your recipe book.

I was a bartender before I went back to graduate school. I learned how to mix a lot of drinks and learned many valuable lessons including this--it's the mix that makes you sick.

 

If you stick with a name brand and don't use mix, (other than water or something comparable like soda), you'll probably avoid hugging the toilet. Note, overindulgence will still kill brain cells and give you a headache, but you won't feel like you want to die. So, although I enjoy looking at the fancy drinks, they aren't my drink of choice when I'm really serious about drinking.
