For Science!

Soakin’ in a Tub o’ Vodka

After seeing this post on Gizmodo, about getting drunk off gummy bears, I had to give it a try myself!  Being both, a gummy candy connoisseur, and an avid drinker, this was right up my alley.  In fact, I frequently consume the two together already; albeit separate.  Until now!

Reading the article on Friday night, I promptly checked my gummy candy supply.  I wasn’t able to find official gummy “bears”, but I did have some gummy Lifesavers, and the classic “Swedish Fish”.  I dumped a hand-full of each in a small bowl.  For the gummy Lifesavers, I stuck to the plan, and filled the bowl with Svedka vodka.  However, I pulled an audible on the Swedish Fish.  Swedish Fish have become one of my favorite accompaniments for whiskey, so I filled their bowl with Jameson Irish whiskey!  (Side note:  “Sour Patch Kids” are also an excellent side dish for whiskey, creating a nice whiskey sour effect!)  Both bowls were covered with some static-cling plastic wrap, and put in the fridge.

An Introduction To aroBANTER

31 Jul

aroBANTER is what happens when I need to ramble on for longer than 140 characters.  I thought for a while about using Google+ for such things, but along with Facebook, it didn’t seem to fit.  I will most definitely be posting links to aroBANTERings on those other sites, but if you want to take in the full load, you’ll have to slurp it up, right here!

My original inspiration for doing a blog, was to do a site dedicated to my constant annoyance with poorly designed objects I come across; and the occasional well designed one.  But then I thought about how infrequent articles could end up being, and started coming up with other things I wanted to banter about.  So instead of a dedicated niche site, I now have a blank canvas to banter on and on about whatever I desire; aren’t you lucky!  So the rule of thumb will be: If it takes more than 140 characters to finish my thought, it will probably show up here. (no more cheating with “” or “TwitLonger”)  And if the original concept sounds like something mildly interesting, don’t fret!  “Monday Morning Designer” will be tied in here, as a feature of the same name.
