Apparently I'm driving to Texas for a 4th of July party, so I could probably drag one of those hay-ride wagons behind the Jeep if that helps. Might get a trifle windy on the Interstate but I have to slipstream behind the big trucks to get over 80 MPH anyways and the slipstream always reduces the wind.

Have you tried harnessing the gravitational well of a localized black hole to slingshot your Jeep to a faster speed?

No, but if I can find a black hole nearby I'll give it a try next summer.

Latest revelation on the cocktail front -- I was flipping idly through "Beachbum Berry's Grog Log" looking for something that matched the ingredients I had on the kitchen counter, and tried something unusual (at least for me). The recipe was for the "Hawaii Kai Treasure", unusual in the sense that it included 1/2 oz of half-and-half cream.

The recipe called for more lime than grapefruit, but I ended up with something like :

- juice from 1/2 lime
- juice from 1/2 grapefruit
- 1/2 oz half-and-half cream
- 1/2 oz curacao
- 1/2 oz orgeat
- 2 oz rum (El Dorado demerara happened to be in front)
- 1 cup crushed ice

This was mostly an excuse to play with the new blender (a retro Oster unit with "1000 watts of Osterizing Power", whatever that means, but apparently it will blend golf balls), however the result was surprisingly tasty. I had stayed away from any recipes containing eggs, cream, or...

... OK, that's wierd. The motion sensor light just kicked on and some kind of animal ran past the window. Not sure if it was a mouse/rat on the window sill or something much larger on the ground, but don't see tracks so leaning towards mouse on the window sill...

... but anyways the addition of 1/2 oz cream before blending totally changed the taste of the drink, much more than expected.

Red wine during and after dinner. Grand Marnier as a digestive and now I am into the dark rum. I have to admit I feel stoned and tired right now.

Was the lid on the blender at the time? That might account for the greater than expected shift in taste.

Ewww.

Update on the animal situation - went outside in the morning and noticed that the new house has no window sills, so it must have been a larger animal running past on the ground.
