Contact is the Secret

Does anyone else remember this show? I used to love it when I was geeky youngster. It fed my love of science, even if my grades didn't reflect it.

5:00 Fridays

There's been a chill in my bones ever since Mac Daddy and I stood out in the teen temps in DC for inauguration. I just can't seem to shake the cold, my body seemingly covered in goosebumps for the long haul to spring. I'm so hotly clad in fleece, fluffy shearling slippers, and a scarf at any given time of day. A sexy sight to behold, I'm telling you. I'm considering getting some of those fingerless gloves to wear around the house too. And for you readers from the tundra states, I could use a pair of ear muffs. Perhaps it was a mistake to whack off 11 inches of hair in the dead of winter. Brrr.....

So in an effort to warm up, I'm making a Hot Toddy today. And for those of who know me, you are well aware that I have my very own personal Hot Toddy with me every night. hubba hubba

Hot Toddy
1 oz light rum (Mac Daddy prefers to use whiskey, but that stuff gets all up in my nostrils and makes me shudder.)
1 teaspooon honey (I use a heaping teaspoon.)
1 slice of lemon studded with a few whole cloves
1/4 teaspoon of grated ginger (Do not, I repeat, do not, use the powdered stuff that's been sitting on a grocery shelf for months. Freshly grated ginger only. Omit this if you don't have any on hand.)

Combine the rum, honey, lemon slice, and ginger in a big ole mug. Add hot water to fill. Stir with a cinnamon stick, which does double duty as garnish.

I feel the chill vanishing already.

Words for How We Feel Now

Thanks to Twitter, I stumbled upon this fantastic video by Emily Troutman. Bird and Deal were perched on my lap watching with me. It proved to be a great reading lesson for Bird, and Deal just liked seeing all the Obama pictures. And I must say, the song is catchy. I'm gonna download the Killers today.

So the word I would add to the montage is PEACE. How about you?
