Hello, My Name is Bitchy Waiter...

I am back. This is the first new post in days and days so forgive any typos and the apathy that may creep into this writing. My brain is still on vacation mode. While gallivanting across the Pacific Northwest, I ventured into many dining establishments and was served by a variety of servers. Young or old, experienced or newbie, they all had one thing in common. Each and every one of them brought my ass a cocktail. It is not surprising that I drank my way through my vacation. What is surprising is that I carried a pen and paper with me so I could keep meticulous notes of all the alcohol that I ingested. On average it's about three cocktails a day so it's not like I have a fucking problem or anything. Some were better than others but all were divine. Below, you can witness the slow poisoning of my liver and I have listed where they each came from in case you want to sample them sometime. Some were made for me at the homes of friends but I am pretty sure if you turn up on Stephanie or Ron's door, they would be happy to make you a cocktail. Or at least give you the recipe.

the first step is acknowledging the problem... I see no problem. The Betel Juice cocktail sounds good... like a Melon Ball, we used to drink Captain Morgan, Midori and Pineapple.
Chris has called me Tracy Morgan for years.

So I am guessing your vacation was ten days long?

Night Sai said...

Alcoholic? You? Not one damn bit! =)

You have made numerous bitchy comments about white wine drinkers, so I'm not surprised that your uneducated palate should misnomer your "russian river chardonnay". Unless you were drinking swill, quite possible. You were drinking, "Sonoma Cutrer Russian River Chardonnay". Tootles. I still love you, though.

@ truck driver: you are totes correct. i never saw the bottle, just had a glass. tried to remember the right name. you're good.

pomegranate martini said...

Love the pomegranate martini! It's the only cocktail I drink, actually! Long before Oprah raves about it, I'm already hooked, lol! I really think pomegranate blends well with alcohol, really love the flavor. I always keep a fresh pomegranate in my kitchen whenever it's available in the supermarket, but I also have the bottled concentrated extracts in case of emergency, lol! ;)

Boyfriend and i drink "occasionally". Boyfriend says we don't have a "problem" 'cause we DON'T GO TO MEETINGS!
We're Professionals!

I hope you stay free and remember that life is what you make it <3

Sucker said...

Of course you don't have a problem. Who suggested that? 34 in what, 11 days? Not bad at all.

We need to start an Alcoholics Unanimous...

Claire said...

Wow. I'm a pretty big cocktail fan and had one or two every day on my recent holiday, but you're in a different league! I want a kiwi cosmo. And the Peachy Bitchy Spritz sounds pretty awesome too!

Pippi said...

I see you also enjoy my standard, vodka gimlet. Grey Goose Gimlet on the Rocks please! Welcome back, now get to work!

If all my vacations were as alcohol-heavy as yours, I would happily die of cirrhosis.
