To Blog or not to Blog

I'm late with my post today. It's been a very long day. In working a little each day on my romance novel, one of the very largest tasks, and the one with which this blog is of assistance is the "Outrageously Rude Interview". I'm to answer all these questions about my characters and plot of my novel. One of the many is "Do you like to drink? WELL. I like to drink water, and coffee and juice is o.k. but tea is my hot drink of choice, and as I think the question really is asking about liquor, I'll have a more extensive answer. I like to drink my tea with Black Sambuca. A habit I acquired at the last federal election. If you recall the last federal election was the one held over the Christmas Season. It was a very long pre election period, fifty six days, rather than the usual 36.(I hope I remember correctly). Anyway, we had a lot of nasty winter weather, and many of us in the office were, first tired, but also coming down with various cold like symptoms. Our Returning Officer looked after us very well, she needed to, we were necessary to facilitate the electoral process. Anyway, I think I was probably the only tea drinker, brought my own tea pot and all. And I suppose one day when I was under the weather she slipped me some Sambuca, and I've been hooked ever since. I like to have a glass of wine with a nice meal. I like to have a Rum and (real) Coke with friends at a party, and of late I'm liking a beer with my pizza. So I guess the answer is yes I like to drink a little bit. My husband can tell you I'm a cheap date, mostly because after he buys the first drink, I'm usually on my own. I rarely get asked if I would like another. So today after a very long day, I'm having a tea with the big S. I'm eating mac and cheese so I can't justify drinking wine and I'm alone so no rum either. So another question gets checked off. I'm curious to know what everyone else likes. I would like my characters to be a little different from me so go on send me comments. I'll buy you a drink.

Martini's. Lychee Martini's, Cosmopolitans, Vodka Martini's, Gin Martini's.....Framboise with Chambord...Martini's with olives...LOTS of olives. Crisp, chilled glasses....Martini's. Green Apple Martini's....are you getting the point???? I think all romance novels include at LEAST one martini if not one each in chapter.

My drink of choice is Malibu Rum with Pepsi and about 3 lumps of ice...it doesn't taste too alcoholy and that is why I like it. I also like Sour Puss with Sprite, and 3 cubes of ice again. Not too much of a drinker BUT these 2 drinks could be an endless glass!! Adi
