Basically my prep list for snow storms and for life.
Why does Harvard schedule the best stuff when normal people are working?
After sleeping for 12 hours, I think I’m well enough to finally go see Skyfall.
Looking forward to it.
I know that none of you love me, but if you did, this might be a great purchase in the coming months.

Important Conversations: Whiskey Stones
Important question for future dates: "How do you feel about whiskey stones?"
not just for dates
for all people
If the martini is the undisputed king of gin drinks, the Manhattan rules the whiskey ones. And though I’m utterly intransigent about how a good martini ought to be made, I’m flexible when it comes to the Manhattan. Even in its innumerable variations, the deep and dark character stays intact. With brown-liquor season upon us, it’s the drink for right now.
That said, it’s a cocktail that requires a whole host of decisions. Rye or bourbon? Perfect (composed with equal measures of sweet and dry vermouth), or just sweet vermouth? Bitters? Garnish? Rocks? My advice is to try the Manhattan every which way (just not all at once), because different versions suit different moods.
Every day is made better with a Manhattan - my favorite garnish is a whiskey soaked cherry.
The weather’s getting chilly - make sure to keep your loved ones warm.
Note this for my next birthday. You know, minus the glitter.
You don’t have to tell me twice.
This is literally all I need in the world right now.
