The drink sounds good, but could I have it with tequila instead? I don't like gin very much. :D

My summer has been over for a couple of weeks now. We have been in school now for 3 weeks.

catland
09-03-2003, 05:44 PM
oh-boy - its the booze cruise:D :cool:

I'll wear my hawaiian shirt and bring some chocolate covered macadamia nuts.

Thank goodness you started this thread Richard. This has been a h*** of a week so far and I've been waiting for the Thursday one to start. I feel too new to start one myself.
I will be wearing the appropriate AF attire although I won't look the same....LOL LOL

The DOTD sounds good! Any chance of getting one a day early??

Soledad
09-03-2003, 06:01 PM
Crappest week for a long time by far. I'm dead scared for my kitties and the mean lady downstairs!! See Cat General for more details.

In the meantime I'll take an Appletini. Make it big. Real big. And real green. A few maraschino cherries wouldn't hurt, either.

RICHARD
09-03-2003, 06:02 PM
mugs,

Tequila Sunrise

1 1/2 oz. Tequila, Orange Juice, Grenadine

Pour Tequila & Orange juice in a Collins glass over ice, Trickle grenadine on top

------

Catland???


DOTD or ???

-------

Soledad,

Appletini

1 oz vodka
1/2 oz Sour Apple Pucker or apple schnapps

In a mixing glass filled with ice, combine ingredients. Strain into chilled martini glass. Garnish with raisin.

it's the raisin garnish that has me worried!!


lol
-------------------
Slick,

dotd for you!!




DONE!!!!!

Just a raspberry ice tea and one of those stuffed avocado's for me please, richard.

Klondike bars for everyone. ;)

Aspen and Misty
09-03-2003, 06:20 PM
Vannila milk shake please :D

Ash

RICHARD
09-03-2003, 06:27 PM
the Zipmeister requests rasberry ice tea and a stuffed avocado...

A&M,
A vanilla milkshake..


and what would everyone do for a Klondike bar???



(klondike bar is a square of vanilla ice cream covered with chocolate....the trick is to eat it before the chocolate melts all over your hands.....the commercials sing this little ditty -
What would you do for a Klondike Bar while the actors do dumb things....)



DONE!

catland
09-03-2003, 06:34 PM
I'll take a DOTD - as long as it has one of those little umbrellas.:)

slick
09-03-2003, 06:36 PM
I did a google search and there really is a drink called

BEACH BLANKET BINGO

Equal parts of Cranberry & Grapefruit juice, Splash of Soda

Stir juices over ice in a Collins glass, top with soda, Garnish with a Lime wedge

Granted there's no booze in it but I think it would be very fitting for the younger one's attending the beach party or for those of us who are designated drivers.

Edited: just did another search and there really is a drink called "Beam me up Scotty". Damn it Jim I'm just an old country doctor, not an engineer!

Must get back to work now after swatting all those mosquitoes.

Miss Meow
09-03-2003, 06:39 PM
I think I'll start with an Appletini, thank you! :) That will fill my fruit quota for the day, and then I can start drinking ;)

I would eat a Klondike bar as soon as I finish my Appletini - do I get one for doing something that silly?!

Soledad
09-03-2003, 06:39 PM
Yay, another Appletini. They're dangerous...

babolaypo65
09-03-2003, 06:54 PM
I'll have a modified Beach Blanket Bingo. Modified with a big ole splash of vodka! hey, that actually sounds like a good drink!:D

RICHARD
09-03-2003, 07:45 PM
cat,
an umbrella drink for you!

slick,

lol,
Damn it Jim, I'm a mixologist not a entomologist!!!

a bingo for you!

Soledad and MM,
Appletinis for you-
Klondike bar sidecar for MM!

Babo,

DONE!!!

Karen

It's a little too chilly today here for Beach attire, but I look the part for end-of-summer anyway - I got a good sunburn at the Pet Talk gathering on Sunday, so my forehead and nose are peeling, and my arms are still pretty pink.

Just a lemonade for me, please ;) with a sprig of mint if available.

KYS
09-03-2003, 08:07 PM
I love the idea of the tropical scene.
I can picture it now, beautiful clear water and white
sand. Oops, Don Ho and Tiny Bubbles almost
ruined it for me. LETS HAVE SOME REAL Island music. lol
Rich are you going to play the ukulele???


Roast pig sounds delicious, I'll pass on the poi.
Drink?? I'll let you pick it, but make is sweet and not
strong.
I'll bring the shirtless cabana boys to serve us all. :cool

Soledad
09-03-2003, 08:08 PM
Shirtless cabana boys??!! I'll leave the husband out of this one. ;)

Make 'em young and robust....can hardly wait for the party to start.

I remember that someone wanted to be Gidget so does that make Richard the BIG KAHUNA or MoonDoggie :confused: :rolleyes: Forget Don Ho but do we really need to play Jan & Dean on the Juke :confused: in the jungle the mighty jungle the lion sleeps tonight awim-a-way awim-a-way Oh dear, I haven't even had my drink yet :o I'll let the cabana boys decide on my DOTD

HAPPY DANCE IN PROGRESS!!! OUR HEAT WAVE IS A THING OF THE PAST!!!

I'd like ginger ale with pineapple juice please.
I'll wear my day glo orange shorts and matching tee shirt. They must look ok, a humming bird has been following me around all summer when I wear them.:D

catland
09-04-2003, 12:01 PM
Can we also toss in some Harry Belefonte tunes?

DAY-O!

mmff - congrats on the end of the heat wave. Our string of 90+ weather is supposed to come to a close this Sunday. We've had one of our warmer summers in a long time but its nothing compared to what you've endured.

RICHARD
09-04-2003, 12:24 PM
good morning everyone!!

shall we begin????

Karen,

Lemonade w/mint!!! and some skin lotion??:cool:

Kys,

i'll ukelele, but very badly, if you don't care;)
let me get my grass skirt on....tequila sunrise??
Cabana Boys, please disregard the NO SHIRTS, NO SHOES, NO SERVICE sign....

Soledad and Slick,
No moral dilemas in THIS bar!!;)

LB,
You can sing the HIGH parts...i think i have the flu and a sore throat.....The Cabana Boys love straight Tequila shots.....Hey, we run a respectable business here!!!!:D

MOFF,

ginger ale and P-apple juice!!
why do hummingbirds hum???

BECAUSE THEY DON'T KNOW THE WORDS!!!:rolleyes: :eek:

Catland,
Here's a roll of quarters!!! let's rock!!!

DONE!!!!


a toast to cooler weather, beach movies on the telly and fruggin' until your feet hurt!!!!

Logan
09-04-2003, 12:34 PM
Must get back to work now after swatting all those mosquitoes.

Sorry!!! :o I started that, didn't I?????

Richard, it's Thursday and I'm broke (after my dog grooming session this morning). I'll take whatever is "on the house".

Logan

Richard:

Set me up with the DOTD. It's one of "those" Thursdays! Can't wait for the weekend.

Did I hear.....Cabana Boys? FANTASTIC!! I'm definitely there!

your money is no good here, anyway!

lol, always wanted to say that!!

DOTD for you!

(I give great dog massages so if your pups are interested....of course they will never be the same afterwards!!!!!)

Robin,

DOTD for you also...the Cabana Boys will help ease the pain!!!!

:D


DONE!

lbaker
09-04-2003, 01:08 PM
I think I'll switch to that Tequila Sunrise. Straight tequila shots, mix with cabana boys = trouble. Logan, watch out if Richard gets hold of your dogs for scritches - they may start walking backwards :eek: :rolleyes: just ask Rusty's folks ;) (see "It's Your Fault Richard" in another thread) Richard, the grass skirt is stunning but did you HAVE to do that thing with the coconut shells :eek:

Logan
09-04-2003, 01:11 PM
Hehehe!!! My girls are so smart that they already back up for their scratches, so Richard would fit right in!!! :)

lololololol....

i worked with a gal who was going to leave the company, she was going back to her home country.....as we came closer to her
last day, i told her that I was going to get her a 'male stripper'......She was very adamant about NOT having a male stripper......she even threatened not to come to work that day.......I had SO MUCH FUN teasing her about it....

On her last day i make a skirt, bra and mask from a whole bunch of envelopes...I had the people in the office keep her busy until the MAIL stripper came into the room.....

that poor gal was hysterically laughing, her eyes
welled up and she cryed for a good 10 minutes....

THAT was fun... coconut shells??????? no problema!!!!!

A TS for you!!!

DONE!



:D

catland
09-04-2003, 01:20 PM
Great party as usual everyone. :D Richard - can I get my next drink served in a pineapple? Those are the best.

What song should we play next?

would "she wore an itsy-bitsy teenie-wienie yellow polka dot bikini" be to risque?

09-04-2003, 01:55 PM
Ok here I am. I've brought my special beach towel with surfboards on it; it's been tucked away in a cupboard so the cats can't claim it (hint, hint Richard).

I'll take a mod BBB and that will make me feel fab and groovy!

And speaking of strippers, me and 15 of my closest friends and family went to see some male strippers for my 50th last August. Even my 78 yr old Mom enjoyed it and she wants to go back for her 80th next June. Way to go Mom!!

Hey Cabana boy, can you pass me some of that suntan oil please?

Logan: don't worry about the mosquitoes. I've passed that link on to a few choice people here to play. Every mosquito has the face of a ex!!

zippy-kat
09-04-2003, 02:09 PM
Another raspberry ice tea w/ an orange slice please!

I have no clue what tv shows you guys are talking about so, I'm introducing my own theme song!
Tonya's Beach Song (http://www.geocities.com/fozzy42/SoundClips/Themes/TV/Fraggle_Rock.mp3)
(Nomilynn found this last night...credit should really go to her!)

Ahh...to be a child of the 80s!
(I miss those cartoons!)

Dance your cares away
Worry's for another day...

speaking of silly movies - anyone here ever see "Attack of the Killer Tomatos!?"


(hint - when you are an undercover agent infiltrating a mob of killer tomatos, never say "pass the ketchup":p )

Technically I will still be a student next week (but not for much longer :D :D :D ) so I definitely want to participate next week.

But in the mean time it has been a good week (primarily because it has been short), so think I would like to try an apple martini this time....
