    Bane, you're right. Your blog is one of my guilty pleasures.

    And, *doing a little curtsy* thanks Kin.

    Too fun. We have many of the same likes, being women and all, not terribly suprising I guess! Vox is the chick drink drinker in our family and the one he orders the most often is Sex on the Beach, but he's very picky and it has to be made the right way which is with Chambourd.

    I would say don't worry, your sonogram will be fine, but it won't stop you from worrying anyway. Hang in there you'll get the results before you know it and will be able to put it all behind you.

    Bane, it disturbs me that you would know what that tastes like. If you are drinking a SotB with cream in it it is NOT the way they are supposed to be made.

    Bane, not sure what's wrong with you exactly, but you might want to get that checked out. But a sex on the beach should contain vodka, chambourd, pineapple juice (some like to add peach schnapps or worse yet put cream in it - these are an abomination and should not be consumed!)
