Well, the “Suck” is officially under way. It’s week two of NaNoWriMo and I’m at 19k words…so no stalling today, either. Onward with the history!
November 9th, 1934: Carl Sagan is born in Brooklyn. If I need to explain anything about that last sentence, you might need to recheck your geek card.

Do you need more? How about
For your Twist this week, I feel like celebrating one of my favorite movies: Stardust…and guess who wrote the source novel? Yup, one Mr. Gaiman. So enjoy a Stardust cocktail in honor of his birthday!
- 4 parts vodka
- 1 part crème de cacao (white/clear)
Mix the vodka and liqueur in a shaker over ice. Strain into a glass and slowly add the Goldschläger so the gold flakes float throughout the drink. Enjoy!
Okay, so, I was avoiding doing a Garnish this month, but I had to share this: I NEED this shirt.
So, back to the word count and (until next week) geek on!
