Why not ditch the citrus and salt, and spice things up with some Tequila verdita!
What you’ll need:
Rinse the coriander, mint (don’t worry about separating leaves and stocks - it’s all going to get whizzed together!) and chilli. Cut the chilli into slices and put everything into a blender - including chili seeds. Then, (I like to) cut the lime into half, and then into thirds -to help me slice the fruit from the skin- and pop the segments in with the other ingredients, followed by squeezing out any left over juice from the flesh.
Depending on your size of blender and the type your using, you might want to do a quick blend before adding pineapple juice (to prevent or reduce mess), and then mix again once it’s been added.
Once you have your mixture, pour through a sieve and into a large mixing bowl, then funnel into a bottle(s).
And voila, there you ‘ave it - Verdita! A nice healthy chaser for your tequila, which is a great alternative (though I will argue that it’s light-years better than) salt and lemon/lime.
I recently mixed it up a little by adding another 60ml of pineapple juice (as you can see, one of my bottles wasn’t anywhere near full when these photos were taken from a previous batch!), another lime and another half a chilli (though I think I could’ve gotten away with another whole one! It just depends how hot you like it.)
Let me know if you try it! :)
there is cat in my house. i don’t own cat.
Update: cat seems friendly.
Update: dog is unconvinced.
Update: dog’s suspicions were correct. cat gained tactical advantage of dog’s crate and claimed victory.
dog, exiled and dejected, seeks refuge with his last remaining allies in space-under-the-desk.

I need this in my life!
That time Bryan and I blagged ourselves free t-shirts by getting our hands tattooed and I told my mum about it over text.
I’m in need of a new laptop (R.I.P. Acer, it was fun while it lasted!) and I’m pretty keen on the Toshiba Satellite Pro C850-1MC.
Does anyone work with this model or know anyone that does? Would you recommend Toshiba? Etc.
All suggestions and help welcome and much appreciated.
This is the greatest knock knock joke in the history of all knock knocks jokes ever told, ever.

Trying not to explode with laughter!
This was a card at Target.
I laughed for fucking ever.
“Why do people say “grow some balls”? Balls are weak and sensitive! If you really wanna get tough, grow a Vagina! Those things take a pounding!”
In the nineteenth century, a morbid and curious custom has spread to various parts of the world: the photos were ”Post Mortem”.
”Post Mortem” comes from Latin, meaning after death.
The photos ”Post Mortem” apparently originated in England, when Queen Victoria asked to photograph the corpse of an acquaintance or a relative, so she can keep as a souvenir.
soon after, this idea spread around the world, keeping a morbid reminder of loved ones that have passed on.
Even today, as strange as it may seem, some places still have this custom.
The girl who is standing in the photo is the one who is dead.
This is a classic example of photographic art.
Notice the hands
for people wondering how the corpse is standing up, there is a posing stand supporting the body it’s very hard to see but the stand is supporting the neck, arms and back.
the girl in this picture has her eyes open, but in some cases the photographer will paint pupils on the eye lids to make it seem like they are wide awake
