Pineapple Mojitos Make This Girl Feel Better

First, I want to thank everyone for their support. Your comments and outrage on my behalf made me feel so much better than I did on Friday afternoon.

I had a long talk with the parents and with Dirty, and decided that this happened for a reason and I just need to be patient and secure in knowing that something will happen for me. Secondly, as much as I hate Sidekick, I don't think that she had anything to do with it. Don't think it didn't cross my mind, but I think she is just a mean, evil person and right now I pity her more than anything else. She is unhappy in her life and does not know how to overcome it. Besides, I found out some scandalous gossip about her that turned my frown upside down. (Thanks Penny). I'll share it one day.

For this weekend, I just wanted to stay home and chill out. I was drained, from the whole job thing and from a fight that I had with Dirty for the 14397645 time about getting engaged. I don't know how to leave well enough alone. In my defense, my younger cousin just got engaged, and I was PMSing. Enough said. I will say that Dirty really is a patient dude to put up with my crap.

He made me pineapple mojitos all day Saturday. Please do yourself a favor and make these, they are sooooo gooood. I posted the recipe below for all of you. Your Welcome.

I started drinking at about 11am. It was too hot to move, so I lounged in bed with the AC, while he brought me snacks and drinks. I played Burnout for 5 hours straight. He made me some steak and mashed potatoes for dinner and we bought the Affliction PPV and taped the UFC one. I fell asleep halfway through, but whatevs, I had a great day.

Sunday, much of the same, although instead of video games and MMA, I watched a marathon of Bridezillas and Platinum Weddings on We. With Dirty. Who was more into it than I was. Scary. Towards the evening, my stomach was getting queasy at the thought of talking to Sidekick about my decision. Got a frantic call from Penny while watching the Deadliest Catch marathon. Talked her down, went to sleep, only to be woken up by Dirty sawing wood. Man he snores so loud. Punched him in the arm and he turned over. Fell asleep again. Weekend Over.

Spoke to Sidekick this morning, it's all good. She kissed my ass a little and told me she was happy that I am not leaving. We'll see.


Pineapple Mojito recipe- this will make about 5 drinks.

1 can crushed pineapple in pineapple juice. I like Dole.
20 or so mint leaves. From my Aerogarden.
3 Limes
Rum- Please use a good aged rum, I like Flor de Cana or Ron Viejo de Caldas. You could use another one, but it won't taste as good. Believe me I've tried. Most of them.

Take a few chunks of the pineapple and some juice into a cocktail shaker. Add 5 mint leaves or more to taste, some sugar, depending on how sweet you want it and ice. Shake the hell out of it to break up the pineapple and mint leaves and dissolve the sugar. Add the juice of 1/4 lime and a few ounces of rum with some pineapple juice. Shake again and strain into a glass with ice. Mmmm, mmmmm, good.

If you don't like this recipe, Google another one. You will not be disappointed.

I'm glad that things worked out with Sidekick. I'm also a firm believer that things happen for a reason. I also recommend Pomegranate Margaritas. Rosa Mexicanos makes them kick ass.

Thanks for talking me down off the ledge last night, sista!

Things are all good.

I am a firm believer that thing happen for a reason.

I LOVE the scandelous gossip about Sidekick. I will leave it for you to post ;)

Mmmmm, pineapple mojitos sound yuummy! I have been on a wine kick for awhile and I'm getting kind of sick of it. Maybe pineapple mojitos will be the drink of the summer.

It'll make 5 drinks or one big one. I prefer to make just one big giant mojito and keep it to myself.

Mmm...mojitos. Can't wait to try this one out!

Thanks for the recipe. Given the circumstances, I am glad you had some chill time, and glad that Dirty took care of his Sloane.

Can't wait for that day when you release those details about Sidekick.

I am assuming she's really a man, or a hermaphrodite.

Or, half human, half horse.

The recipe sounds FABULOUS but I've never heard of those types of rum! We'll have to hit the store. I am definitely going to try those.

I'm glad you had a nice, relaxing weekend. Your man is a keeper! He does so many nice things for you!

I totally know how you're feeling about getting engaged. Kevin and I went though it too. I just didn't want to feel as if I was wasting my time if he wasn't planning to propose. I don't need to wait around when I can find someone who WANTS to get married someday. Luckily, he came around and all is well ;)

Oh yea, did your crackhead neighbors get evicted????
