Out of the Blue

I actually put a little drinko in our Cinco de Mayo last night when we went out to dinner where I ordered a margarita. We weren't at a Mexican place, so maybe it was appropriate that it seemed like I got an especially gringo version of the cocktail. I'm pretty sure they used Rose's Lime Juice in making this, which, in spite of the name, does not taste very much like actual lime juice. My margarita was more of a gimlet in the end, but at least my heart was in the right place.

That Robin Williams article still shows how raw it is for me that he is gone. Having had to deal with family members who have suffered from degenerative brain issues it made that entire article both hard to read and better allowed me to understand the final days of Robin.

Having met him multiple times over the course of 3 decades he remembered each of them, and to understand just how difficult it had to be towards the end for him to do it, it only makes things feel that much worse off.

Probably the only celebrity that I'll ever meet that when interacting with them was like interacting with a personal friend just makes me miss him that much more.

The spoilers for Avengers is bullshit.

It took less than a week for stories to start popping up in my feed where the titles actually spoil the end of the film.

I won't replicate them here but I'm fairly pissed off since it completely killed my desire to see the movie.

It shouldn't. This is just part 1 of a 2-part Avengers movie. The end is just a cliffhanger and with the power of the Infinity gems it is obvious that NOTHING is written in stone. I can't wait for Avengers 4 to see the real outcome of these epic movies.

Nice story on 60 minutes tonight -- someone increasing the price of a drug from $40 a vial to $40,000 a vial. Shkreli is jealous...

Not surprising, on a major blockbuster like that you really need to see it within the first week to avoid spoilers. People just need to get those click bait titles out there... and they aren't going very wait long. I'm surprised they aren't blasting out the secrets in headlines on release day...

My favorite margarita recipe:

1 shot Patron
1/2 shot Grand Marnier
juice of one lime

Shake and pour over crushed ice.

For cheap and quick frozen margaritas, I'll use cheap tequila, triple sec, and limeade.

I prefer a triple sec over a curacao. For a marg my poison of choice is Cointreau. Luxardo makes a really nice one too and it's slightly cheaper.

Giraffe Kills South African Filmmaker.

Typical Darwin award winner:
A Glen Afric spokesperson said that Carvalho had ignored safety instructions not to approach the animal and that he was unauthorized to film.

Good news:
“Gerald was not to blame and would not be put down,” the farm said. “We are not going to shoot Gerald. He was not in the wrong. I don’t consider him to be a dangerous animal.”
