I just did 2 shots! God, I love my homework now.
I was filling out index cards for all these random shots, and I saw 2 that I could easily make with stuff I had sitting around (the Brain and the Bloody Brain, which involve Peach Schnapps, Bailey’s, and Grenadine), so I figured, well, I oughta know what these damn things taste like.
So my sincerest apologies for the spectacular lack of blogorificness lately. This is the week I’m doing 2 weeks of bartending school in one, so I’m out the door shortly before 8am and back at 6:30pm. This wouldn’t be as much of a problem if I weren’t nocturnal.
I really cannot function if I try to get up before about 11am. It’s kind of sad, but it’s also a big reason why I think I’d do really well as a bartender. The biggest complaint I’ve heard from people who bartend is about the hours, but for me, it’s one of the biggest advantages.
The other thing that sucks is 2 days’ worth of homework that I have to do when I get back. Granted, this is the equivelant of about half a class’s worth of NU homework, but nevermind. So I come home, I fuck around, I do my homework, then I have to sleep so I don’t pass out during class.
The funniest thing is that I’ve now become even more anal about grades. Since I got 100’s on my Alcohol Awareness (aka Why Not To Let Dumb Fucks Drink And Drive) and 5 drinks in 5 minutes test, I am now obsessed with getting 100% on my final, 15 drinks in 10 minutes.
However, this is something that will probably earn me a lot more money than my NU degree (despite costing 1/216th of said degree), so I figure I really gotta nail this one. Plus, I seem to have a knack for memorizing drinks which I didn’t have for analyzing films.
Anyway, further adventures in bartending to come. For now, sweet, sweet sleep.
