Rx for Bella-beverage alert for everyone

Miss Snark to Miss Stander (upon hearing Miss Stander was still in pain from her equine slam dancing recital)
"There's nothing like a jolt of whiskey to take the edge off.
Let me know if you need to borrow the pail."




Miss Stander to Miss Snark:
WHAAAT!?!?!?! You'd sully your gin pail with whiskey?!?!?!

I am shocked! SHOCKED!!! Almost as much as when you didn't disqualify Red Letter Contest entry #15 for giving George Clooney blue eyes.

Anyway, I've discovered that the most effective numbing agent for me is tequila.

Miss Snark to Miss Stander: AUDIO ALERT!!!!!!!!!!

Tequila!

(with a tip of the cowgirl chapeau to Sherry for the linkage---
yes, thank you for the beverage alert in the subject line, I did need a tarp)

AUDIO ALERT PLEASE!!

For the sake of those who read your blog at work, in shared offices, please put an "audio alert" on that link. I got in earlier than my office mates this morning so it didn't effect me, but this could be very bad for someone surfing the web in the middle of a long meeting.

LMAO! And so true, too!

I shared a bottle of 160 proof tequila with a friend once. I couldn't drink the stuff again for ten years. I think I was still drunk three days later. But since we were outwaiting a major hurricane in Hawaii, it did make the experience more...interesting.

Craig Steffen said...

And now that I've listened to it the second time, with headphones on--quite funny!

Barbjn said...

The best part: the disclaimer. Now I have answers to a lot of questions I have had for years...

Also: Hope KY enjoyed his stay with G.S. and that you are all recovered. It's a long weekend when there is no new snarkiness.

For me it has a be a snifter of brandy.

Ever considered fastening a tiny barrel of the stuff around Killer Yapp's neck?

You never know when that slush pile might avalanche on you.

Teetotaler here, but it is funny, ^-^

That one now wings its way through the Phoenix medical community. Blue Cross/Blue Shield won't cover Tequila, but its a sh*tload cheaper than Effexor.

And way more social.

lauowolf said...

Ah,
so are you thinking of switching medications?

The Unpretentious Writer said...

Yum, tequila!

That numbs the day away as sure as a worn cliche (esp. the good stuff, so smooth that you don't even need the lime).

Companies should have Employee Assistance Programs that include the use of tequila.

overdog said...

Mmmm. I won't share my tequila experience because I may wish to reveal my identity someday. Suffice it to say it was thirty years ago, it was once, and I haven't been able to bear the thought of repeating it.

THAT's how FUN it was!

Oh my gosh that disclaimer about women and pregnancy was too funny! Thanks for sharing

Hey once a sorority girl always a sorority girls. So this whole blog is actually about you trawling for a man who's ready to endure the ordeal of sort of alcoholeemik masochistic (those stilletto heels) realationship wid chou in order ta eventajelly take advantage of your alleged contacts. Is that how the Manhattan publishing world casting couch is working now? What's next beastiality necrophilia? or is that already part of the deal?

Tequila! LOL.

I once had a little too much tequila at a college Halloween party and woke up at four in the morning on the floor of the dorm elevator. Fortunately, my best friend was there with me.

I haven't had any since!

Hey! My friends are so laughing with me! And I do not dance like a... oh, never mind. No, don't show anyone that video, thanks.

Great link -- thanks for the bellyache, er, laughs!

My keyboard thanks you for the beverage alert.

Welcome back, Snarky. And best wishes to Bella!

Kim said...

Worst hangover of my life was compliments of tequila...

But soooo worth it :)

Welcome back - it was a waaay long weekend... (altho there were a few interesting **ahem** conflicts of opinion over on the rejector's blog to make up for it a little)

Me: Bill? You're staggering. You sick?

Bill E Goat: No, no. I'm perfectly well. The world is fine. I'm fine. Want a leaf to munch? Did your eyes just flash at the sound of lies? Wanna dance?

Me: Bill, you're not fine. I think you're drunk. ....

Bill: Who me? No, non, neyt, nine or ten. I'm not ... I just took some medication. I feeel Fine, FINE FIIINEEEEEEEE. Say, when did you learn to sing?

Me: I'm not singing. ... You're not either. You're bleating. What medication?

Bill: Tea Kee LAAAAA. Miss Snark said it was good for me. I listened to the commercial on her site. She never does commercials so I figured ... Say, isn't the sky a little low today? Where was I? Oh ya ... I figured ... When did I get these shoes? ...

Me: Bill, you're not wearing shoes. You never wear shoes. You figured what?

Bill E: I figured what? What what? Oh, ya. I figured since she .... Over the rainbow ....

Me: Sleep it off, Bill. I'm going to E-mail Miss Snark about what her posts do to impressionable Goats. ... Bill, you're leaning ....

Bill E: [Flop]

Tequila = baaaaad hangover.

Ouch.

The Bims said...

Mmmm.... tequila... I like to rub a little on my gums before a big meeting. Makes it much more bearable.

Thanks for posting! This answered all the questions I ever had about my conception. :-) "You had me at 'dancing like a retard...'"

My sister and I spent a summer afternoon sipping tequila and chatting about our childhood.

Half a bottle later, we decided to get up and discovered that we couldn't.

Mark said...

I prefer Wild Turkey; Knob Creek or Jimmy Russell's Reserve.

spymum said...

Most excellent!

The disclaimer is hysterical; the bits about 'whispering when you're not' and 'the desire to sing karaoke' were particularly reminiscent. Ouch!

More tequila over here please!

(And get well vibes to Miss Stander).
