Back on April 20th, I finally turned 21, meaning I could finally legally imbibe alcohol.  That being the case, I had always wanted to make a martini, if just because the idea of making some sort of cocktail or another always interested me.  High society and all that bullshit.

So I bought some (fairly cheap) vodka and dry vermouth and proceeded home to try and make a martini.  Well, the thing I hadn't known of was that all the martinis I had had previously were made with gin, so I was somewhat surprised by the more alcoholic taste of the added vodka.  That, and I feel that I may have shaken the mixture TOO much, which can supposedly "damage" the alcohol.  

In the end, I disliked the first one but ultimately made a second one, this time making it a dirty martini (which is where you add olive brine to the mixture) which was ultimately better in that it cut the sharpness of the alcohol some.

I honestly have no clue why in the name of God I'm babbling about making martinis, except for the fact that I wanted to talk about it, I suppose.  Eh, there you have it.

Same here, for the most part. I feel bad that I have not been able to get onto dA very often, but work and school have kept me extra busy from doing that and working on fanworks. Maybe I finally will this summer.

Hi Nathander!

Long time, no see. ^_^ This is Silver, from the JtHM/FoP RP. I've been trying to get back in touch with you for a while, and I think I've finally found you.

(Sorry if you find a bunch of messages and PMs from me in random places. I figure if I send enough of them out, you're bound to find at least one.)

Anyway, contact me at BadStoryteller or ArtemisBubbles on AIM.
