Let's say I was given a choice.


Caffeina - goddess of coffee, and by extension, of productivity and peppiness. She represents all that is good and industrious. Truly the perfect choice for the virtuous.

Or this:

Drink me
Skull shot glasses - they represent inebriation and depravity, drunk and disorderly, looped and lewd, plastered and promiscuous, sloshed and slutty...pure liquid evil. Wonder what's inside.

I didn't have to ponder for long, because my mom and dad taught me how to do the right thing when faced with unexpected choices. I knew just what needed to happen, what course of action I needed to take.

Red on robe
Well, jeez! You didn't think I was gonna take the pansy-ass coffee, did you? Interestingly enough, pure liquid evil feels a lot like tequila.

23 of you felt the overwhelming need to say somethin':

When in doubt, always go with the skull.

and i mean combine in the way that the words goddess and skull just might come together...combine...mix it up. ok, I'm done with the bad double entendres for a while.

I could use a little tequila at the moment, pure liquid evil or not.

Nice choice.

Let us not forget though that coffee is as vitally important as alcohol. I could not live without either.

I have to say that the skull shotglasses are way cooler. I like self-photo, too. Cool effect.

Bone Machine - always been my motto. Maybe I have a Yorick fixation...

Opera gal - that is barbaric. Nobody should have to be cut off from the 'net for 12 hours at a time! I think we should send in Amnesty International... ;)

Amy - especially angels in leather (don't laugh - I have pictures like that). I downloaded your standup routine and it's crackin' my shit up! I'll come over and leave you a comment about it today.

SS Nick - well, sneak over for a few shots; by the time you sober up, it'll be spring. ;)

Kylz - I will admit to overuse of caffeine myself, though mine is in Coca Cola and not coffee.

Squirl - thanks! I think I take far too many pictures of myself in a bathrobe. It's clearly a cry for help.

Jim - oh, don't be so lazy. Come over here and get sloshed with us. SS Nick is comin' over, aren't ya Nick?
Who's up for Tequila Snow Day?

The question isn't what your choice was -- the question is how are you feeling NOW? :)

Wait... what about coffee in the skull shot glasses? Alcohol in the angel glass?

Door #1.... wait Door #2!

I had a nice little laugh out loud when I saw the shot glasses. Yeah...not much of a choice, was it?

CKelli - I fear it would be too confusing for me, and somehow I'd end up drinking drain cleaner by mistake.

Spikey1 - I like to choose door #3, when there are only two doors. Pisses Monty Hall right off...

LeafGirl - nup, gotta go with evil in a skull. ;)

I will simultaneously borrow and mangle the quote but here goes. Someone once asked Keith Richards why he wore a skull ring and he said that it was a reminder that we're all the same beneath the skin.

I wear my skull ring as a tribute to Keith because he can sell shitloads of tickets at $400+ a pop. I admire that skill.

All you need are some time-management techniques: coffee before 10:00am; either one between 10 and 2; alcohol anytime after 2:00pm.

Dilemma solved.

Not a bad idea, Bucky: I will sneak over for a couple of shots and hibernate until spring. Now, what did you say your address is?

Yeh, skull shot glasses fucking rock.
Good choice!

Effie - sure you don't need a little extra sumpin' in your coffee?

Bone Machine - there are many reasons to admire Keef. There's also that matter of after-death reanimation...

Eclectic - guess I need to take you on as my drinking coach. ;)

SS Nick - 69 Cheaphooker Lane, Whoreville USA.

Pissy - hey, three glasses- come on up!

MilkMaid - OK, clearly I need to get some more shot glasses. The need exceeds the supply.

Never did I once think you were going to take anything else but the skulls...unless you needed mixer. Sometimes a Mexican Coffee is the best thing to happen to a girl. What's in a Mexican Coffee, you may ask?
Coffee, cream, sugar, and a shitload of tequila. Sometimes you get a dollop of whipped cream and a cherry on top...dirty minds are working overtime; just sit back and watch the comments begin. :oD

M_D - I was told, no more cherries for you.

Wonder what that meant?

Thank God they didn't mention the whipped cream...oh, I've said too much. Never mind.
