Happy Hour on the Hour

Lucille: Get me a vodka rocks.
Michael: Mom, it’s breakfast.
Lucille: And a piece of toast.

-Arrested Development

The story of how The Vodka Asylum's name came to be was based on the fact that I think both of the words are quite beautiful. I usually keep a shortlist of my favorite words handy on me. Currently, that list also includes "babylon", "vermilion", "pillow", and "ambidextrous."

Eventually though, I will get around to telling you some of the stories of my adventures with the sauce. For now though, I'm focusing on the morning after. 'Cause there's got to be a morning after.

Courtesy of, check out your new bed buddies.

Martini glass, olive, vodka bottle. Breakfast of champions.

Cigar pillows. The site does not advertise a match or a lighter pillow so there's no pressure to smoke, right?

Everyone's got their own preference in poison and Sofa Garden provides a wide selection of red wines.

And white ones.

Ahh, let us not forget the cork bolster, the pillow staple every person craves. Of the bunch, I find it might be the hardest to sell at $80.

Love to you all,

Arrested development is hands down the best American comedy that has come out in a long time.

I am one of the 8 people residing on this planet who has yet to witness the awesome that is Arrested Development. I say it's because I have so many other shows to watch (this is true) so I don't have time (this is sort of true) but I'm sure when I finally pop in that first dvd I will not stop laughing until I've watched the entire series.

Lovely pillows, by the way...I like the corks muchly.

hi Heather, those are great pictures. i'm a fan of red wines too. i love the deepness of the taste and the "mature" feel when drinking them ;)

thank you for the thoughtful comment you left in my blog. you're right, thinking about someone when listening to a song that revokes memories can be bittersweet at times :)

have a nice day!
