I'm also giving away a silver byzantine bracelet, (see my blog for details) which is a separate contest from the grand prize. I still have to figure out what hoops one has to jump through to set up yet. (Wanders off) Hmmm, where did I put those hoops?

What about a Champagne Mimosa? If you're eating breakfast, this will probably go well with your scrambled eggs and toast.

Ya... She is doing better, she broke it at her SB game and then had to have Emergency Surgery at the reginal Childrens hosp to fix it on Wed... I have to say the hosp was nice and really catered to the kids and parents, it is sooo much different from when my youngest was a baby and in and out all the time... but its been almost 10yrs I guess it was time for a change!!!

I remember the first time someone ordered me a Shirley Temple, I was 11 at a "bar" eating with a friend and her parents and was soooo freaked out I wouldn't drink it, lol I had no idea it had no alcohol in it so just pretended to sip it until I could asked for water...

I am so sorry about your daughter. I hope she feels better soon. Shirley Temples are awesome they make you feel special when your young. I used to feel so grown up when I ordered a virgin strawberry margarita.

Thank You... its going to be a long summer that's for sure. I've never had a "virgin" margarita before but I'm sure they are as good at the "grown up" version or atleast almost, lol

Is there still a party going on here? There is some half-dressed, buffed out fire men and music leaking over to my Author Spot Light! They claim it is getting to crowded at Breathless Babes. *wink* Whoo Hoo Ladies! We are having a good time. Come on over and say hi! Party Jubilee! Post anywhere but Party would be great!

So that's where they went. More trucks loaded with firemen showed up here and they said there were more parties on the horizon. Some stayed, some played, some strayed, <g>

I agree, sometimes alcohol gets in the way, but I must admit, nothing can replace a real beer or real wine. (I can handle and G&T without the G, but man o man, it kills a drink when it doesn't have whatever flavor alcohol adds to beer and wine.:fridaynite:

June 13th, 2010, 09:16 PM
lol Brandyzbooks...that sounds like the first time I had a Shirley Temple. My aunt and uncle ordered one for my cousin and I. I kept sipping it, and the whole time I thought "omg, they are giving me alcohol." lol My cousin was 2 years older than me and when I whispered in her ear asking if it had alcohol in it, she told me yes...the brat!

I like alcohol but I can't drink, I am on to many meds for my heart and other things.... That is okay I think it is funner to watch and make fun of the drinkers and NOT have the hangover, lol

I remember waiting for someone to come and arrest me. lol Of course, I later learned that it was a kid's drink and I learned about more virgin drinks....so when I ordered them at restaurants when I was with my non-drinking parents I think I embarrassed them by acting like a preteen lush! Ah, so fun to be a kid sometimes.

I don't like the taste of alchohol at all. I love virgin pina coladas. I've had the ones with rum and they just aren't as good. I made some jello shots not too long ago that I had to throw out because they just tasted gross!

Lol, and I've already had a few incidents were throwing up was involved. I throw up enough as it is, my incredibly weak stomach doesn't need any incentive. So, you ladies party, I'll drive (except I hate driving, so that doesn't really work either).

*Contest Info*

The grand prize winner will be picked tomorrow morning, and I'll post who the winner is. I'm taking everyone's name and throwing them in the cowboy hat. (I live on a farm, lol)

We are all in different time zones, and approaching the evening hours to late night hours...so our posts might become less, but feel free to party like we're here. I know that I have had a great time talking to you all. I'm pretty new to CTR, and I feel like I know some of you now, which is really nice. I'll still be here for a little bit. I'm a night owl!

I did want to thank everyone for stopping by, commenting, and great conversations. We all appreciate it very much. *mwah*
