How to Sleep (or not) with a Cat – The Crazy Cat Lady is Tired!

Sleeping with a cat can be … torturous. Sleeping with 6 cats is something the Spanish Inquisition could have used. (No one expects! the Spanish Inquisition!)

Below are two little fun videos for your end of the year entertainment. The first is a fast-motion video of man sleeping with a cat. Seriously, watch through til the sun comes up – the cat goes nuts trying to get the man to wake up.

The second is of course, The Spanish Inquisition, from Monty Python. Can you believe this is from 1970? Over 30 years ago…..time flies.

And speaking of which, time is definitely flying as 2012 is just around the corner. A small announcement is that for a time I will only be doing 2 posts per week, one on Monday and then Woodie on Wednesday. I’m burying myself a bit in a writing cave, and have determined to see this one ms through to the end.

Thanks for your kind support throughout this past year – enjoy the flicks!

Ha-Cha-Cha Chicken – Cheap Date Night is for the Birds

I am a firm believer in all things cheap and fast. Just like I like my men. heheh. =) Ok, nobody tell my husband I said that k?

So for our meal today we’re having Ha-Cha-Cha Chicken. Simple as a dimple.

1 pre-cooked chicken breast or leftover rotisserie chicken
chopped onion
chopped green pepper
3-4 Tbsp hot sauce
Toss all in a microwaveable bowl and well..microwave. 3 minutes or so til veggies are a little soft.
Add in macaroni and cheese – either prepare it yourself, or buy the Bob Evans already done stuff. (Yeah, guess which one I go for….=) ) Toss in 1 Tbsp sour cream and stir.
Microwave another 3 minutes or so and top with crushed Doritos. Spicy ones! If you’re really talented and know how to turn your oven on? You can bake it at this point for extra crispiness.

Smart Ass Romance - Bottums Up - Fun Drink RecipesWhile you’re baking away like the Naked Chef, let’s have a little something to cool down the chicken heat. Something like say, oh a Maui Volcano

Maui Volcano

½ shot Blue Maui
½ shot Malibu Coconut Rum
fill with Pineapple Juice
lime garnish

Now gather your goodies and lets enjoy a last bit of summer!


Flash mobs – someday I’ll be in one….


ok, seriously. Would you ever be part of a flash mob? Would you ever be the starting person where everyone thinks you’re totally crazy?

I don’t think I could ever be the starter….too chicken. =)

Send over another flaming shooter please

You’ve just got to watch this. Seriously? How many tequila shooters does it take before you think slicing limes with a fan is a good idea?

Date Night – Dinner, A Movie and Drinks

My husband is cheap. I mean CHEAP. He squeaks when he walks. If I say honey, why don’t you buy Hanes instead of Great Value, he’ll actually say “squeak squeak squeak”. And I know I’m not the only one married to such a cheapskate thrifty man.

So here today, is your cheap date. Dinner (ok, just the recipe) a Movie (generally supplied by Youtube and less than 4 min long) and Drinks.

Hachacha. Hot time in the town tonight.

Nacho supremo. Start with a bag of Doritos or corn tortilla chips. Spread chips out evenly on a microwave safe plate. Top with a handful of shredded cheddar cheese, and nuke one minute. On top add your ingredients of choice. I recommend ground beef (cooked), crumbled bacon (the already cooked kind if you’re feeling flush, cook it yourself if you’re CHEAP), jalapenos and tomatoes. Some people think this would be a good spot for mushrooms or even black olives, but….ew.

Top that with shredded cheddar cheese. Either microwave 2 min or melt in the broiler part of your oven for a few minutes til melted.
Voila. Supper.

Smart Ass Romance - Bottums Up - Fun Drink RecipesWhile the cheese is melting on your nachos, lets put together a fun little drink called The Salty Chihuahua.
Rub a lime wedge (or even a wet finger!) around the rim of a glass.
Salt the rim.
Fill with ice.
Add in one shot of tequila. (the good stuff, now’s not the time to be cheap!)
Fill with grapefruit juice.
By now the nachos should be done.

Grab a chair, sit back and lets enjoy a few moments of Marco Tempest and his Phone Cam Magic – And ps – Your drink isn’t too strong – it’s the cameraman who’s wobbly on the first one!


and one more, just cuz I lurrrrrrrrrrrrrve Marco


Now that’s a date even a cheapskate would approve of.
