ECH's post-prep pre-lunch-rush breakfast of choice when working:

combine in blender:

1 banana (peeled)
1 raw egg (shell can be discarded, if preferred)
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup milk
1 cup decent brandy or rum

blend until smooth, then pour into a 22oz. mug until about 1/2 to 2/3 full.
top mug off with 1/2 can of fruit punch-flavored Nos Energy Drink
stir gently with spoon to mix, then pound it down.

repeat, as you will usually end up with enough to make two mugs.

you won't have to eat for a good 12 hours and you will be totally ready to fistfight a rhino.

Except for the Nos that sounds delicious.
You're a special case, Babylon.  You are offensive even when you don't post.

Merely by being alive, you make everyone just a little more miserable

Last night I got fucked up and energized on a mix of
  • Vodka
  • Naked Juice
  • Seltzer
  • Rocks
Probably wouldn't be as energizing for everyone as it was for me as I am sensitive to sugar, but it was fucking tasty. You can feel healthy as you beat the shit out of your liver!

Also, if you want to just wake yourself up in a "WHAT THE FUCK DID I JUST DRINK!?" sort of way, I bring you The Burning Bush:
  • Gin
  • A fuck ton of hot sauce.
  • A Jalapeño pepper
Let it sit for a bit, allowing the pepper's character to come out and the drink to get warm. Slosh it around in your mouth a bit. Scream something profane and blasphemous and then slam your empty drink down.

It has all the endearing traits of vomit!

In the old days people just did lines in the bathroom and tequila shots at the bar......  :|



being in Portland, I expect the cocaine would be organic, sustainably-farmed, carbon-free, and utterly worthless at twice the price. I'll stick to synthetic uppers, because I know what to expect from them.

Brand: Four Loko

Flavor: "Fruit Punch"

Booze: 12%

Serving Size: 23.5 oz.

Stimulants: Taurine, Guarana, Caffeine

Other Known Ingredients: Artificial Flavor, FD&C Red #40

Tastes Like: Fruit Punch, if fruit punch were made in a prison toilet tank.

Verdict: Tasted better than either of the first 2 contestants, but made me void my bowels within 5 minutes of the first sip and left me with a very angry and pained gut after half a can. Could not finish.

Rating (out of ten points): Incomplete. Will try again tonight at the party and report on results of slamming an entire can.

Sounds like it could be marketed to those "colon cleanse" freaks.

for sure. I mean, it didn't just make me shit, it emptied me. Including the stuff I had eaten for dinner less than 3 hours before, most of which was still recognizable (which may have been part of why my guts felt like I swallowed a cenobite).

They didn't, the antifreeze company that originally made it did.

Bump. I feel I should revive this experiment.
