Dark days

31 Jan

They aren’t over. Yet. They will be. Good things have happened in January.
Sometimes the best way to get over being down is to just indulge in it. Sulk. Get it out of your system.
I like to do this by indulging my goth-y roots. So, whilst wearing kick-arse stockings and blasting the musical stylings of the true love of my life, Trent Reznor(sorry, Bittman, you’re only my cookbook lover), I will console my angst with an equally dark dessert adult beverage: a chocolate black Russian.
It’s almost worth getting in a bad mood to make this.

What do you do for bad moods? Comment, guys, comment.

Chocolate Black Russian from the Drink Pro Lite App/strong>
1 oz. Kahlua
1/2 oz. vodka
2/3 c. Chocolate ice cream
Blend it. Sip it. Sigh. Apply black lipstick. Sigh again. Bad mood begone!

    So indulgent, you minx, you! Dark days for me involve candle burning and journal writing – just keep going until I see some light. Oh and wine. Yes, I think a bit of wine.

    Agreed. Sometimes a good sulk is all you need to move on.

    Sulk if you must, but then eat chocolate and popcorn.

    I hope you feel better soon! ๐Ÿ˜‰
