    Wow, someone who is more obsessive than me!!!!!! Love it!

    Woo baby, I just checked and there will be 22 couples taking the floor in the first round (well, a quarter-final actually) of the Martini Smackdown :) Of course, it's really all about just Samina & me, the others are there to make things more interesting floorcraft-wise ;) But don't blink or you might miss me if I don't get to that semi-final :)

    Someone should see if the bar can put new items on their drink menu: lauratini and saminatini. Ladies, what will your ingredients be???

    Latin debut and you didn't even check that championship event?

    Hahaha...um...2 bottles. ;)

    Anyway, that's different. I always feel the challenge of overcoming performance shyness.

    A tequila cosmo...or mexipolitan as you so cleverly called it. :)

    Hey, there are only 13 in the silver latin scholarship. By comparison, much less intimidating.

    Lol...was working on that as you spoke. :)

    A lot depends on how zen I get with my new heels out club dancing tonight...if I end up not feelin' the luv, I may make a big splash alright in my debut...a belly flop! ;)

    I'll get back to you on that one. I used to keep a file of cocktails I was inventing, but I lost it somewhere and will have to see what I can come up with off the top of my head.

    Oh, sorry! I was just trying to "up" the fun quotient! Don't worry, it will all be fine, and I'm really looking forward to meeting you in person.

    Gosh, I'll never forget when I lived in a garden apartment and there were a bunch of singles there and we got together one night with all the alcohol we each had and concocted drinks using a bartending book. The most painful drink was called a bubblegum shot. Had one of the worst hangovers ever.

    I hope to see you there on Saturday. I'm going to visit a local (Brooklyn) dressmaker and then I'll head over.

    Well, TS & I are dancing at 12:20 (or so) and then again at 5. Make sure you say hi!

    (I feel kind of like I'm going to a family reunion where I don't actually know the family but they all know me.)
