Like Christmas for Nerds

Hey friends. Do you know what day it is? It's National Grammar Day!

To be entirely honest, I didn't do anything particularly notable to celebrate this event last year, and yet, I feel it would be out of character for me not to point it out again this year anyway. Maybe I will actually pour myself a Grammartini when I get home. Maybe you should, too. I have no idea what makes a Grammartini any different from any other -tini, but here is the recipe, for what it's worth.

The Grammartini
  1. Pour two-and-a-half ounces of gin, a half-ounce of dry vermouth, and several ice cubes into a martini shaker.
  2. Shake. (The shaker—not your body or your dog’s paw.)
  3. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with an olive. If you must, use a lemon twist instead. The Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar likes olives, however. When life hands us lemons, we make lemonade.

Now go forth and spread the word. Remember, times are tight, but good grammar costs nothing!

Oddly enough, I did a painting of a martini last night.

NPW--I know, right? And I even have a birthday coming up! :-) I actually thought about buying it ages ago but decided I didn't need it. And now the Glarkware shop isn't even open, for some reason.
