I blogged about this back in 2011 but what with the World Cup and all…here she is.
I'm crazy about Caipirinhas, Brazil's national cocktail. Muddling limes to make a Caipirinha is as much cooking as I do, but it's so worth it. Click here for the recipe. My friends got me this bottle of Cachaca (a liquor made from distilled sugarcane) to make the delicious drink. I love the bottle so much I don't want to drink it, but I also love Caipirinhas. What to do?
Post Snark: Let the drinker beware. Caipirinhas are pretty strong and it's so easy to drink them and drink them and drink them. If I was a gnat, I would dive into a pitcher of Caips and drink my way to the bottom. What a way to go.

Count me in on this one. A John Waters read does not disappoint.
"John Waters is putting his life on the line. Armed with wit, a pencil-thin mustache, and a cardboard sign that reads “I’m Not Psycho,” he hitchhikes across America from Baltimore to San Francisco, braving lonely roads and treacherous drivers. But who should we be more worried about, the delicate film director with genteel manners or the unsuspecting travelers transporting the Pope of Trash?
Before he leaves for this bizarre adventure, Waters fantasizes about the best and worst possible scenarios: a friendly drug dealer hands over piles of cash to finance films with no questions asked, a demolition-derby driver makes a filthy sexual request in the middle of a race, a gun-toting drunk terrorizes and holds him hostage, and a Kansas vice squad entraps and throws him in jail. So what really happens when this cult legend sticks out his thumb and faces the open road? His real-life rides include a gentle eighty-one-year-old farmer who is convinced Waters is a hobo, an indie band on tour, and the perverse filmmaker’s unexpected hero: a young, sandy-haired Republican in a Corvette.
Laced with subversive humor and warm intelligence, Carsick is an unforgettable vacation with a wickedly funny companion—and a celebration of America’s weird, astonishing, and generous citizenry." Amazon
