We’re less than a week into the new year, and I’ve only broken a couple of my resolutions so far. For me, that’s a pretty good start.
Along with eating healthier, getting rid of clutter, and pausing to count to ten before I place a hasty bid on eBay, one of my resolutions is to combat my habit to procrastinate. Anybody else with me on that one? Yeah, I thought so.
Here’s a cocktail I came up with a couple of years ago, and it’s not too shabby if I say so myself. Its moniker derives from the fact that it took me more than a month to get around to posting it on my blog, for no reason other than its namesake. Tonight, after a light dinner, I’m mixing up one of these to enjoy while I go through the piles of paper on my desk and stay the hell away from eBay. Well, I dunno...maybe I'll do that tomorrow.
