The Week in Beverages.

We haven't talked about this, but I love beverages best. Particularly the hot, delicious ones- cocoa, cider, coffee, and even some teas. I used to greet visitors to my dorm rooms with the offer of a hot beverage, and I think that on winter days, nothing is better.

That's why I'm gone for vin chaud. Mulled wine, the stuff of Dickensian Christmases, is delicious. A friend's mom gave me the recipe, and if you want it, I will email it to you.

But, I've also always been one for trash. So I also love the 17 cent Greek generic cola I get at Lidl, the cheap supermarket. It is liquid delicious, also probably good for unblocking clogs in your plumbing. It goes very well with my euro microwaveable pizzas.

And of course, there's my new favorite beer, Desperados. It's like Corona, but with more tequila. It's the perfect summer beer, in my opinion, and I want to know if I can lay hands on it in the States, because it would be perfect for porches or pools.

And that's what I've been up to, really.

Oh Lindsay, I fondly recall your offers of a hot beverage to all dormitory guests! In fact, in my own apartment, I have made a conspicuous attempt to stock my pantry with the makings of warm beverages for potential guests. There really is nothing quite like a hot beverage.

Your memory is honored in the music city, indeed.

(Best of luck in your last few days until Valpo!)
