Okay, I know that just 24 hours ago I said I was taking a break, but then I made that half-hearted comment about the possibility of the world ending on Saturday and made plans with a friend for Sushi Sunday with the disclaimer about the having to cancel if the world ends. For the record, I'm really craving sushi, so I hope the world doesn't end on Saturday.
Also, for the record, I don't actually believe that the world will end on Saturday, but just in case the Judgment Day is upon us, I thought it was important to help my readers through it in style - that is to say cocktails and a soundtrack.
Disclaimer: LMS always recommends you drink responsibly, but I suppose that if the world is truly collapsing around you in the most literal sense, then you can do whatever you please. But unless you personally see the Four Horseman, I'd really suggest you double check that world ending thing.
End of the World Cocktail (from 1001 Cocktails.com)
1/2 oz. high proof rum
1/2 oz. whiskey
1/2 oz. vodka
Serve warm in a shot glass. No garnish necessary.
LMS recommends using only top-shelf liquor here. If ever there were an excuse to avoid the cheap stuff, the apocalypse is it.
Now onto the music...
The End by The Doors
Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley
Closing Time by Semisonic
Don't Fear the Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult
We'll All Go Together When We Go by Tom Lehrer
The End by The Beatles
It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine) by REM
Goodbye Stranger by Supertramp
We Didn't Start the Fire by Billy Joel
So Long, Farewell from The Sound of Music
If the end really is upon us in the next 24 to 48 hours, then I can honestly say I've enjoyed the ride for almost 40 years, I've been blessed to have a life full of people I love and who love me in return, and I have much to be grateful for, including each of my Little Merry Sunshine readers.
If the world isn't ending, I'll be back over the weekend.
