The Acid Zombie

I decided to make a mixed drink for this month’s geeky recipe, and it is naturally Halloween themed.

It is a slight variation on a mojito, with extra lime and mint leaves, topped with a frozen “brain” containing water and blackcurrant juice.

 

For a single glass, you’ll need to mix:

4 centilitres of lime juice

6 centilitres of soda water

7 centilitres of white rum

1 whole pot of chopped up mint leaves

One Year of Blogging

Tomorrow marks the first anniversary of when I published my very first blog post!

I have been posting three days a week for a year, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, resulting in a whopping 157 posts, including this one.

 

I am going to continue with this schedule out the month of October, but after that I might cut back, at least a little.

I have started working at a new location, and I hope to start posting my new comic here very soon, so those changes in my life is enough of a strain to make three posts each week difficult to accomplish.

I am glad I was able to stick with it for a year, and I feel some kinship to the musician Jonathan Coulton, in how he recorded one new song each week for a year for his Thing-A-Week project, even if that must have been considerably harder than what I have done.

I would like to thank everyone who reads my posts.

InterRail 2010 – Part 15: Pisa

Later the same evening that I had left Brig, I arrived in Milan, Italy.

.

I did not get to see much of that city, as I was soon on a train to Florence, where I took in on a hotel near the station, and left on the first train in the morning, so I did not get to see much of that city either.

I was headed toward Rome, but decided to take a detour through Pisa while I was in the neghbourhood.

.

As soon as I arrived, I headed straight for the Leaning Tower.

I knew the general direction, and I figured it would stick out enough for me to spot it easily.

I ended up wandering for quite some time before I saw the Leaning Tower jutting out at the end of a street.

I arrived just before they were closing, so I just barely managed to buy a ticket.

I had not dared going up the Eiffel Tower on this trip, but I was determined that I would not let my fear of heights stop me again, particularly because this tower was much smaller, and did not look that crooked to me.

As soon as I started ascending the stairs, the tower started to seem much more crooked.

I just about managed to get to the top before I had hurry down to ground level again.

As I strolled back to the train station along the Arno River, I was happy that I had made myself go up there.

I took a room when I arrived in Rome, and readied myself for another day of new experiences.
