DOWN THE HATCH!
Last night I tasted my first Cosmopolitan. For those of you who don't know me, I don't drink. Not that I didn't give it the good old college try long before I was of college age. I drank 14 whiskey sours one night at a company Christmas party when I was 18, which was the legal drinking age back then, and I didn't even really like whiskey sours. While most adult beverages taste like gasoline to me, I did learn that after a few, they tend to go down like water -- drinks that is.
However, the real reason I stopped drinking had more to do with vanity: I didn't want to age prematurely. Alcohol, tobacco and too much sun will turn the most beautiful female into a shoddy ripoff piece of Luis Vuitton luggage. I didn't quit completely; I average one drink each year.
Last night I decided WTF. So I had a Sex & the City special, the drink that Carrie Bradshaw made famous: A Cosmopolitan. I braced myself for that first sip. I must say, it was delicious, so down the hatch!
Next year I'm thinking of a dirty martini :)
And now for some cocktail chatter ...
8 Bathroom lip service? Now, if they'd only wash their hands.
8 For Muslims who want that homeboy image: The bagginess is to ensure the wearer avoids stiffness while bending down repeatedly during prayers. The pockets are for holding all the accessories Muslims have to take off while they worship. And the jeans have green seams — because green is the sacred color of Islam.
8 Page Six blind item: WHICH political reporter attends so-called "circuit parties" while flying high on ecstasy? "It stuns me that a prominent figure with public responsibility would show such poor judgment," said one witness, "not to mention that it's totally illegal."
8 First “Brokeback Mountain” and now THIS: COUNTRY duo Big and Rich eating sushi with Cowboy Troy at Tao.
8 In no uncertain terms, and an ironic choice of words, Hands off Kevin, rep tells blogs: Kevin Costner's camp is vigorously denying that the "Field of Dreams" star engaged in sexual self-gratification in front of a horrified masseuse at a posh Scottish golf resort.
Michael Douglas is another possibility.
