Kitty in the Sky

Thursday, November 29th, 2007

I know this is probably posted everywhere on Sanrio-related blogs, but I feel I am required to make note of it, too!

Hello Kitty made her Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade debut this year.

I had a call from my mom when the balloon appeared on tv, “Just wanted to make sure you saw Hello Kitty. Ok, bye!”

Better Drinking Through Technology

The design is awful, but I love the concept at (If the person who runs this happens to read this, why don’t you hire me?) I used it with some friends after a party left them with several odd leftover liquors, and we had a grand time with some interesting cocktails.

Using Webtender’s “In My Bar” app, you click off everything you have, and it tells you what you can create. I just picked out a few random ingredients, and got results such as Doug’s Modified Cement Mixer, Dr. Raspberry, and the Green Widow.

Dr. Raspberry is Chambord with Dr. Pepper over ice. As I tend to pour Chambord into lots of things–ice cream, champagne, bad white wine–and am a big DP fan, I’m pretty likely to try this one.

The below is not on that website, but I think it appropriate to share here:
