New Orleans was founded on this day in 1718. To celebrate, the bar is serving Mint Juleps and Old Fashioneds all day, those southern staples...

well, 3 minutes after the city founding, corruption set in, which has persevered to this day! So, happy corruption anniversary as well!

Can I pull a "Happy" and change my birthday so I can be a Taurus for the day?


I've got a sick kid home today so I'm going to need something strong to kill any germs she may have shared - Long Islands and keep them coming.

Thanks Sarah!

I asked High Maintenance if she wanted to live in a bubble - she was okay with it as long as it was pink. When I told her we could also fill it with helium so she could sound like a Chipette, she was even more excited with the idea.
