The fact I’m drinking this again can only mean one thing…
Yup; I broke and I ordered pizza again. But seriously, it’s good Friday and I just finished a super long shift and the last thing I want to do is cook. Ugh; fuck that shit. Fuck it so hard. This goes with pizza so well though, and the icy coldness of is very refreshing and is making me feel so good and relaxed.
In other news; my Dad/brother are coming up on Sunday for Easter, and then my brother is going to stay over here until Tuesday evening. It feels like such a weird, adult situation; I’m “hosting” my family here at my house, and my brother is coming to visit. It feels really weird and foreign to say or think about, but I’m excited!
Also – our house smells like vomit. That is less exciting.
Tre came home yesterday at like 2 AM piss drink and upset because he went clubbing and A) the people he was with ditched him and B) he couldn’t pick up any girls to bring home. He then proceeded to get sick and vomit on his bed, which he then slept in…
Flavors: Lemon Zest
Now that I I’m logging this one, I feel more excited about drinking it. It’s another easy sipdown for me to get in!
I mixed this with a bit of plain vodka (I also picked up vanilla and wildberry vodka) to kind of get my “sea legs” for it again; when I used to drink
illegally vodka/whisky were my drinks of choice, but it’s been a long time since then so I’m easing back into it.
It was… ok.
Round Two for the evening.
This was the convenient tea option while I was painting my nails.
Does anyone else do that thing where they crack the can open enough that they can suck the pop out of the can but it still visibly looks closed? Tre noticed for the first time tonight that I do that and he was baffled by it. He asked why I do it and I told him I didn’t remember, but that was actually a bold faced lie since I knew he’d mock the real reason.
Truth is I remember very consciously making the observation in around fourth grade that my classmates were all more interesting than me, so I purposefully developed small habits to give myself more “quirks”. Among them were crossing my sevens and only cracking my cans of pop partly open. Now those things are just second nature to me…
Anyone else ever do things to deliberately be quirky and then have those things become real quirks? Or just me?
On a whim I decided to search the data base for this one…
Whenever Tre and I order in pizza, we always get the “2for1 Movie” deal, which comes with four cans of pop. Neither of us drink pop regularly, so we get Nestea since this is the “most agreeable” option for both of us – so there’s usually a few cans sitting in our fridge that eventually get drank.
Since we ordered pizza tonight, this holds especially true. I happen to be drinking one of them right now, actually.
Personally, I think that this gets a bad wrap among tea drinkers at the “Steepster” level (by which I mostly mean tea drinkers with lots of knowledge and many types of teas under their metaphorical tasting belts) – sure, it’s highly sweetened – but as a convenient kind of tea I think it’s probably the best in its respective class/market.
I know that personally, I would prefer a glass of this than the typically shitty, over steeped Lipton bagged green tea most restaurants offer. And at least when I’m eating out the average non-tea drinker knows what I mean when I say I’d like a Nestea, unlike when I say “Do you have any oolong?”. That counts for a lot, in my book.
It’s good for what it is.
Flavors: Lemon Zest
I don’t know why people here judge this brand of iced tea because, overall, this isn’t tea. It’s basically a refreshing drink with extracts of tea flavored ice fishing. Anyway, Nestea is an inescapable easy to find. When I’m too lazy to go to the grocery store, I stop at the corner store to buy some Nestea bottles. It tastes the same as Brisk but you don’t say anything about it because it’s a Lipton brand. That’s it.
