Drink of the Week for Jul 18th, 2003: Amor De Cosmos

What we had to say

Sometimes life kicks you in the fun bits, and sometimes you get cheesecake, or win trips to Vegas. Well, maybe you do. We don't. We mostly get kicked. Take this week, for instance. Here we are, minding our own business (and maybe some of yours too... you never know), when out of the sky falls this huge stone tablet with the BEST drink of the week EVER chiseled lovingly into it's granitoidal features. Needless to say, we were excited. I mean, how often does the sky give you stuff? Not to mention when it landed, it crushed some hapless bystanders who had just come out of the movie store with a copy of "Crossroads".

So, emboldened by a metaphorical Britney Spears mashing, we set out to transcribe the heavenly drink into electron form for dispersal to you, our loyal readers. Just as we'd reached the last word however, our internet connection went down. For good. We phoned our service provider, and after spending two hours on the phone with some form of human-answering-machine-hybrid that could only say "please try rebooting", we got a service guy to come over. He started to replace our network card, but he was apparently a few hot dogs short of a picnic, and forgot to turn off the power first. The resulting flaming network tech managed to destroy an entire wing of our castl... er... office, and the tablet was crushed into a hojillion pieces by a support beam that fell when our store of overproof rum was immolated.

This week's drink is pretty good too. You know... for a normal drink that hasn't crushed anyone. You guys enjoy it... we're going to head over to that internet service provider and kick some... stuff.
