Vodka Infused Gummi Bear Update #1

So, last night it seemed that the gummi bears had absorbed nearly all of the vodka, so I decided it was time to put in the fruit punch. I followed the directions in the article -- mostly, I think I added too much juice, and set it back in the fridge overnight.

Just now I checked on them to stir them up a bit, and about half of the juice had been absorbed as well. It seems the timeline in the article might be a little off.

Anyways, the real point of this? A gummi bear fell out of the container and onto the counter. Oh no, I should put it back in the container, right? I was going to. Really. But it just looked so tasty.

And it was. It tasted like a regular gummi bear, couldn't taste any vodka at all.

I'll make an epic update when I throw back about 40 or 50 of them and tell you how they work.

Vodka Infused Gummi Bears

I ran across this article a couple days ago and decided to go buy myself some Gummi Bears, because I've already got all the necessary vodka :)

You basically soak the gummi bears in vodka and they'll absorb it all in just a few days, providing you with a tasty snack that will provide lots of entertainment. Just stick it in the fridge and stir it around a couple times a day. This article also recommended pouring in some frozen fruit concentrate once the vodka is absorbed because the alcohol taste tends to be quite strong.

I think I'll be trying out at least a few bears tomorrow night and I'll definitely keep you updated. Come back in a couple of days and I'll tell you how awesome it is.

My thoughts on The Lost Gate by Orson Scott Card

I just finished this book today, and I can't wait for the sequels. That's the only thing I hate about reading a new book.

It's basically about a kid who is from a line of gods -- they're the ones who all the mythologies are based on, only their powers have been diluted over the centuries while they've been trapped on Earth.

Everyone thinks he doesn't have any affinity for magic, until he finds himself in a place that he couldn't possibly have gotten to on his own. He's a gatemage, and possibly the strongest ever, except that gatemagery is forbidden, and anyone who's born a gatemage is killed.

This is where the simliarities to Jumper started. The kid can teleport, runs away from home, falls in with the bad crowd, etc.

Even with those slight misgivings, The Lost Gate was a fun read, and I can't wait for the sequels.

Day 1

I procrastinate too much. Know how long it took me to write that last sentence? Way too long.

I'm "working" on an assignment now and I just can't keep my mind on it. I've done everything I can to avoid doing it and now there aren't many other things to do to further my procrastination.

So I made a blogger.

Does anyone else find that writing helps relieve tension and stress and help you focus on the task at hand?
