Greetings from Shmarker! It’s been awhile, fellow followers of all feats fagulous, since my last post. I’m sorry for such a long delay (though I know I don’t have quite the following my fellow NPBiaH posters have), but I must blame my studies for such. No, seriously. I had to sprint a session of marathon reading in order to finish Gravity’s Rainbow by my self-imposed deadline for my directed reading, followed by a fantastic trip to Washington, DC, where I took pictures in front of rockets (see, that was educational as well!) when not drinking at Brickskeller, house of 1,000 beers, followed by a brief visit with Mrs. Dalloway, who insisted on buying the flowers herself (that’s what servants are for!), then a pit stop for Three Cups of Tea with Greg Mortensen (a somewhat delightful read, but I’ll let you know more after I attend a speech he is giving my school and place of employment on Sunday), only to begin my whale watching expedition to locate Moby Dick. So, yes, I’m a tad stressed.
And, apparently, the Diet Coke of nerd, as Shmathan so nicely called me in a comment on my last post.
But anyway, in an attempt to procrastinate on my reading, I felt compelled to tell you about the most amazing product out there: MonaVie’s energy drink.
Isn’t that gorgeous looking? And, if you look closely enough, it’s HEALTHY, too! I mean, 170 calories in 8.4 ounces! But, it’s made of Brazilian super fruits, and every Brazilian I’ve seen is super skinny, so it must be healthy! Delicious, too. It tastes like a drink my bar makes, which uses regular MonaVie and is marketed as “the world’s healthiest cocktail.” I like to fashion myself as a connoisseur of energy drinks, as I usually consume at least three or free sugar free Red Bulls, Monsters, Rockstars, or Venoms a week. A neighbor who sells the stuff brought these MonaVies to me. It has replaced all other energy drinks as my favorite. It is Just. Plain. Amazing. As I live only a two-minute walk away from a movie theatre, I drank one before seeing Julie and Julia last night, and this is where my diatribe about the wonders of this drink really kicks off.
