The Evi Queen Maleficent

I have to say that out of all the Disney anmated movies, Sleeping Beauty is my favorite.  I love that Tchaicovsky did the music and who can resist the littel fairies, Flora, Fauna and Merryweather.  As Princesss Briar Rose(Aurora) goes wandering through the woods she runs into Prince Philip and they sing.  I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream.   Corny, but I loved it as a child and now.  I even like that evil Maleficent.  She was quite a character and at least her skin was normal,  you know it wasn't green.  So, I have such fond memories of watching the movie as a child and then later with my daughter.  So, as I am browsing the book section at Wal-Mart I see it.  "The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty"  by none other than my favorite author Anne Rice.  I was over joyed.   Sleeping Beauty could now become a vampire and slay the evil Maleficent.  WRONG.  Anne Rice wrote  a Sleeping Beauty Trilogy around the same time of 50 Shades of Grey.  Which I was not going to take time to read since my brainiac hall pass Dr. Drew Pinskey said he wished he could get the time back he spent reading 50 Shades of Gray.  The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty is much like 50 Shades of Gray.  I started reading and then could not put the book down.  I knew what I had to do.  Order the other two.  So, during Labor Day I am telling my daughter about this book and how I was a little disappointed that it was not about vampires but more like 50 Shades of Gray.  She was like, "Oh, yeah, Mom the book is good.  I will lend it to you when I finish I am almost finished and already ordered the next two."  I could not believe my baby was ready such a boook but so was I.  I told her to finish her trilogy and I will finish mine we will trade and then go to a long dinner to discuss.  She said that would be fine.  My book does have an evil queen oh, she is wicked but I don'[t think she paints her nails but if she did I am sure this is the color she would wear.  This is Cult Nails Evil Queen.  It does make you feel a bit evil when you wear it.  You were able to put on a beautiful polish that dries fast and makes your nail looks smashing.  You are the envy of every girl how could you not act a little evil wearing this polish.

Tequila Sunrise

While doing this manicure, I could not help but think how much I miss the Palm Trees of the Rio Grande Valley.  Waking up in the morning with the palm trees swaying in the wind just makes you know you are going to have a good day.  I’ve always had sleeping problems so was usually the first one to wake in the morning to see the sunrise and have a hot cup of tea.  Then just as I’m finishing my tea.
So now with some tips about tequila.  NEVER drink cheap tequila.  Make sure it is a reposada and don’t have more than three shots speed out over the night.  I drink occasionally and when I do the only thing I drink is Tequila because it is not loaded with sugar.  I spread it out over the night.  Stop at three.  My tequila.Cuervo 1800.  I don’t drink it in Margaritas because the mix has too much sugar.  You know that headache you have in the morning after a night out.  It is because of all the sugar in frozen drinks and we girls love those frozen concoctions, but I can almost guarantee you take away the mixes in Margaritas and just drink Tequila straight.  You will not have a headache plus you don’t have to go to the bathroom every 15 minutes.  Another thing to beware of when you order Margarita’s is that bartenders will tend to throw a shot of vodka in your Margarita along with the cheap tequila.  So, when you see happy hour.  Margaritas $2.00.   Beware.  Same goes for tequila sunrises,  Made with tequila, orange juice and grenadine, all sugar.  Drink three and you won’t feel good in the morning.  So if tequila is your thing like it is mine take some of these tips for a really happy morning and you will be able to wake up and enjoy a sunrise.




So, if you are a tequila drinker, what is your favorite?
