Cocktails and Dinosaurs: News and Libations for the Weekend of 9-25-09

Semi-weekly posts of the news that's only a week old.
Libation of the Week: Appletini

Special thanks to Tara for contributing a cocktail for this week. The Appletini, also known as an apple martini, the manliest cocktail you can drink. Add some maraschino cherries and an episode of Degrassi for that classic Tara flair.

Ya know, darlin’, I’m 97 percent chum free.

Avast! International Talk Like A Pirate Day is this Saturday, September 19th, 2009!

Some holiday suggestions:
  • Stock up on rum and rum cocktail making accouterments
  • Play The Curse of Monkey Island
  • Listen to Coeur de pirate (not really pirate-related, just good French Canadian music)
  • Watch Johnny Depp movies
  • Learn what bung hole means (I feel like Beavis and Butt-head have lied to me all these years.)
I wonder what Kanye West thinks about the Talk Like A Pirate Day website?
