The one and only, Ed Fury
It's official, I am completly blind now with my glasses on.
Today was my SECOND cataract surgery and is tradition, when they were giving me the sedation, my final and one thought was of Mr. Peenee. I have written Mr. Peenee into my will and I was thinking: God, I hope I don't die, but dear Lord, if you take me, please make sure that my husband boxes up all my old porn in the basement and ships it to Peenee. I have BOXES of gently used porn in the cellar. All of it top notch, legal, and its weighs a fucking ton. Most of it from the 1980s. But Peenee, if you are out there, it has your name on it.
Anyway, the surgery went fine, but now I have a disco ball light show going on inside my eye. Because the eye is swollen from the trauma, any movement of something causes light to bounce around. In two days it'll be be gone. Still, because my eye are now both -2 instead of -4.5, I can see the computer screen without having my nose to it, but my glasses are pretty much worthless. This will make driving interesting. So I plan to be ferried as many places as possible.
Anyway, to celebrate my new eyes - and it is something to be able to see like a 20 something me used to do - I'm having cocktails!
I mixed up a batch of Cookietini's:
1) Good ice cold vodka (I use Vodka 360 because its good and its inexpensive - better than that Grey Goose crap, and it has no taste what so ever);
2) a splash of sweet vermouth;
and cocktail onions.
Reader these are delicious. They are also deadly because they have no strong taste. So if you imbide, do not drive.
All this begs the question - what is your favorite cocktail?
