I like to drink. I don't think that's a surprise or a secret. Not to excess, and really not even more than an occasional drink once or twice a week these days, but I have always enjoyed bar science and culture. So ive decided to do something about it and created a new blog: Vodka is a Vegetable.


Still working on finding the right voice for it. Trying to make it snarky without going into Dark Robio territory. Anyway if you're bored drop by and give it a visit. It's still early stage, but I did like the blog I wrote about grocery store wine.

But is it a Russian or Polish vegetable?

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere  
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst  
Are full of passionate intensity.

Can't even put an active link? Stop drinking and get to work.

Yeah my bad. I always forget, the mobile version of the site doesn't automatically hot link.

Well technically potatoes originated from Peru.

Then the debate is finally settled. Peru invented vodka!

Having browsed your website, I am disappionted that you didn't go for 'Rabout' and 'Rontacts' in your menu to compliment Reviews, Recipes and Ramblings.  You made Scooby Do sad.

edit: as a more serious, but no less sincere, advice: ditch the 'on mouse over' sliding overlays on your images.  It's very distracting while scrolling, especially when the images are often very large and the full width of your site.

These are brilliant kinds of ideas that I'm just incapable of coming up with.

Oh and thanks all for the comments, clicks, and suggestions. Like I said, it's still very much a work in progress, but I'm chugging along with it. And as far as a podcast, I'm thinking about it, but I'm not exactly sure what to do themewise with it. Trying to get some local friends involved with the idea too, but it's always pulling teeth to get other people to do a podcast.

Your website seems to have eaten my comment.  Alas, the world will never know what other brilliant ideas I had come up with...

Well the Australians didn't seem to have any problems, aside from recognizing fine British literature.
