Bomb-ass jello shots [May. 17th, 2015|08:09 pm]
Tray Dawg
Friday night I decided that I was going to make some jello shots for the kickball tournament because one of my teammates vaguely suggested it as we were leaving our planning meeting to discuss who was bringing what. So later that night I was like I'm gonna make some freakin' jello shots. I made orange ones which were just orange jello with orange vodka so I don't think I need to post the recipe for that, but then I made purple(ish) ones which are probably the tastiest jello shots I've ever had. So I want to record this for future reference since I was kinda being creative with the ingredients but it worked out really, really well.


1 packet (3oz) berry blue Jello mix
1 packet (3oz) grape Jello mix
1 cup (+ a little more) cranberry juice*
12oz unflavored vodka**
5 oz water

*I used Publix brand Diet Cranberry juice cocktail, but I don't think that's important
**I used Smirnoff 80 proof, but I don't think that's important either other than probably don't try and use the 100 proof

1. Mix together 11oz of the vodka and 5 oz of water and make sure it is chilled. I used vodka and water that were already cold, but I still stuck it in the fridge while I was doing the rest of the steps.
2. Add a little over a cup of cranberry juice to a pot and boil it. The idea is you want 1 cup, but when you boil liquid it evaporates, so you're making up for it.
3. Once it boils, measure out a cup of it and add to a heat-safe mixing bowl.
4. Add the jello mix and stir until dissolved.
5. Stir in your cold water/vodka mixture.
6. Realize that your mixture isn't purple enough and add another ounce or so of cranberry juice.
7. Realize that you've lowered your alcohol content by doing this, and add another ounce or so of vodka.
8. Give up on achieving the perfect shade of purple, and distribute your liquid into small plastic cups. Preferably the ones with the lids, but Walmart didn't have those when you went shopping, so you bought 3oz plastic Dixie cups instead. No biggie.
9. Put your jello shots in the fridge for several hours. 3-4 is what's called for but I did 6 because it was after midnight when I did this and I needed some sleep, yo.
10. GET CRUNK. Because I needed a 10th step ok!?!?!
11. After getting crunk, realize that actually it was not a 10th step you needed, but a 12th.
12. Stop making stupid alcohol jokes and drink some water, ya lush.

So yeah, that's the recipe. It's a thing. :D

Update to my last post - I went to urgent care this morning and they tested me for strep. They said it came back negative but they also said there's a 30% false negative rate on the strep test. Ummm that is kind of a lot!!! Since my throat is super red anyway they gave me an antibiotic. So yeah that was anti-climactic.

ETA: I'm kinda sorta maybe possibly starting to get the hang of this whole Chloraseptic thing a little.

January 26th is a lot of things for me. This year it's:

One year since the hockey game that wasn't.
Five years since Tyler passed away.
Thirteen years since Emily was kind enough to give me an invite code to the latest and greatest blogging website of the early 2000's. You might recall this relic from a past era as "LiveJournal."

Time goes by a lot fucking faster than you think it does.

What I was trying to type: "My friend just got diagnosed with MG too, weird"
What actually came out: "My fr just got diagsed with MG tweord"

Ughhhh. Can't wait to get a new battery. Also it's a Dell so hopefully I won't need to get it from Dell themselves. I've heard how that turns out (*cough* comitto *cough*) =P

Sorry this is a dumb post but


There are two really cute shirts I want to buy and I'm good for the money, but why spend it when I know I have a gift card, and FUCK IF I KNOW WHERE THE GOD DAMN THING IS.


Seriously, I am way more pissed off about this than I should be, and I can't convey that in this post, so I am just going to keep tearing my fucking apartment apart.

I posted a pic on Facebook of me and my dad for Fathers Day and it's kind of an old pic where my hair was much longer than it currently is and also I weighed several pounds less than I currently do. I really miss my long hair and I also could stand to drop some lbs. So earlier today WHILE I WAS AT WORK MIND YOU, I put the two thoughts together and tried to Google "does losing weight make your hair grow" lol because who knows, bodies are weird. So this is what happened.

I would just like to say FUCK YOU to Donald Sterling, and FUCK YEAH to Adam Silver. Peace out, bigotry. (Icon in celebration of this, because idiotic Kanye West quotes are always fun.)

So I managed to lose like 7 lbs recently. I think part of that was I was clearly retaining water because my ankles were swollen as fuhhhh. So I think being in cooler weather for a few days helped them calm their shit down and now they look normal again and I weigh x-7 now. We don't talk about what x is. (Was.) I was actually kinda worried that I'd injured my foot when I fell off the back porch when I left She Who Will Not Be Named's house, and that the swelling was related, but now I don't know if it is but I don't care because it's gone. I just have to remember to drink more water because I've been awful at that lately, so my body won't retain every last drop out of desperation. This means shoes actually fit me now, hurray!

I went into work for a few minutes today (I scheduled today off because I knew my plane landed late) to get my biometric screening done as part of the conditions for the "wellness rate" of health insurance. The other condition is to be a non-smoker. I don't know how they prove that - they vaguely mentioned testing, and I think that's horribly intrusive to test someone just for nicotine usage - but I'm glad I don't have to worry about it and it actually makes me feel kind of bad for smokers. I wonder if anyone actually does lie about that. (It's actually no tobacco use so chewing and e-cigs are included in that.) Anyway my #s look really good, which is probably because I inadvertently fasted for like 13 hours lol. Thanks, air travel! That was how I found out about the weight loss, and I was in such disbelief that I actually went to Publix and got on their scale and it said just about the same thing. Wow! (I was going to go to Publix anyway, but the one near my new apartment doesn't have a scale - WHAT!? So I went to the one closer to work which was a little out of the way, haha.)

The other thing I did today was get my internet fixed. It went out sometime on Thursday and when I got back last night it was still off. I'd already made an appointment for a tech to come sometime today. The same guy came out who fixed it last time... when I recognized him, he joked that he disconnected it on purpose to have an excuse to come back out haha. If it happens again I might believe him... lol.

I'm going to drink beer now because I'm still on vacation, suckaz.
