Star Oops space poetry

The emotional
Relationship between
Man and man
Is great and
Important.

A mercy, slowly
Put together.
Made at risk,
So consider[ed].

Then realized
That every
Choice
Was [a] miss,
A casualty [to]
Other work.

Too late now.

[He] thinks well
Of you.

He does? Surprised.
What did he say?

Smile; high praise!

Praise?

You like [him]?

[Maybe]…

Apologies for not updating the poem recently. Though, I have to say I think these posts are my least read. I don’t think anyone has ever commented on them (besides Patty, thank you Patty!) I’m determined to get through all 263 pages of the book. Regardless of how long that takes. Trying to make even nonsensical space poetry out of some pages is a difficult task! Especially the ones where Heinlein drones on about neo dogs, or space ship design, or tactics…

I’m glad now that this page took so long to get to now. It’s not the greatest memorialization of the Supreme Court’s ruling on marraige, or Pride. But, then I’m not the greatest poet working with the greatest source! #Lovewins

Cocktail of the Week: Campari Peach Float

Campari Peach Float

 

Here in northern California we’ve been blessed with a week of days where the temperature has been above 100┬░ F and the nights really haven’t been that cool either. Bicycling to and from work in business attire in this sort of weather is as unpleasant as you imagine it to be. With this kind of weather I’ve been defaulting to simple cold water when it comes to drinks or perhaps a beer. It’s just too hot to enjoy cocktails.

Until, I got this month’s Bon Appetit magazine that had a small section dedicated to floats, that delicious combination of ice cream and soda, that contained tips on turning your float into a boozy float! This concoction, the Campari Peach Float, comes from the magazine but the article inspired me and things kind of got out of hand here as I started mixing liquors, sodas, and ice creams… Turns out its hard to go wrong when you’re mixing these three things!

A little slice of heaven! Fruity, sweet peach, sour grapefruit, and the herbal bitterness of the Campari all work together to create a delicious, cool treat. Now I’ve got to get back to figuring out what to mix this strawberry ice cream with… Oh, I know this pineapple vodka and maybe some cream soda…. Hrm…
