Harold and I want to thank all of you who submitted drinkie-poos to the Kapu Drink Contest. It was a close finish and a few points separated the winning drink… but Joe Minotaur’s submission won out. Each drink was judged by four people judges (I recused myself from judging) and one
stufftie, Harold. Our guest judge, David, tended bar in San Francisco, and had good insights. Drinks were given a score (from 1 to 5) on each of the following… taste, creativity, appearance, and proper potency.
So without any further a do… Here’s the new KAPU…
One part Frangelico
one part Grenadine
one part Sambuca
one part Dark Rum (Malibu Black).
Serve in a tall glass with ice.
THIS IS KAPU… it is rather strong (Harold added some diet ginger ale to the mix…. he’d had a few too many at that point).
Cartoonist Pal of Awesomeness, Aidan Casserly, created this little ditty. I swear, he’s an up-to-no-gooder! What am I gonna do now?
I need a commercial to run alongside. Wait… I’ll get Harold to do it! Where’s that FlipVideo camera?
On another note, and sure to cause some political SCANDAL… I will accept KAPU drink recipes through this coming FRIDAY. Yah… if you wannna submit something to the little drinkee-poo contest, email me with the recipe by Friday at midnight and the Drink Judging will begin! (Scandalous photos may be taken… political spies are everywhere!) And thank you to those who’ve already submitted… Harold is anxious to try them out!
Okay, Squiddies… I am happy to report that my whole computer fiasco of last week… has turned out to be a Happy Catastrophe. Meaning… everything has worked out okay. The fine folks at my local Apple Store (Thanks Apple Friends) have successfully loaded up my extracted old files from my dead computer onto my new computer and so far… Everything seems to be okay. Thanks for the kind thoughts and the prayers. Smiles… they worked. All things are proceeding in a proceeding as normal fashion.
And from this little posted pic, my awesome pal, Aidan Casserly created this! I didn’t even know I wanted to run for office… Harold never mentioned anything to me…
Well, it’s late… I’m nearly brain-dead and zombie like… and I am getting to know my Mac Book Pro… it’s nifty, very clean and I like the black keys. After 2 hours at the Apple Store tonight, we got my new laptop working, synched with my phone and I’ve loaded up the Wacom and my new copy of Creative Suite. Photoshop CS5 is so different… it’s going to take some time getting used to it.
The folks at the Apple Store near me (Monterey) have been so patient and helpful. I give super big kudos to Cindy, Brett, Robin, Edgar, Matthew… and Jay. Yes, I’ve worked with all of them. They are still trying to crack my old MacBook and get it to spill out all the files that I am terrified that I may have lost.
But through all this, I stick to one of my mantras… that everything happens for a reason. I’m sure all this is going down for some purpose that will become more clear later. I have faith that all things will work out the way they are supposed to. So I’m still smiling despite all the work I have to do this weekend.
Ps. Thank you all for the well wishing and good thoughts and crossed fingers… I appreciate it. Thank you for your support through out.
