Tequila Tuesday: Because Alcohol is as important as Tattoos and Tittays too

Hey darlings, again, I know it’s not Tuesday, but shit needs to be done on this blog.

As you will now notice, I’m starting a new Tuesday called Tequila Tuesday.

So I’m thinking of educating people on different types of Alcohol on these days, where they come from, what they are made of etc. I made the stupid mistake (while intoxicated, obviously) of telling people that Vodka is made out of water.

*crickets*

Yea, I dunno where I got that either.

So what is every popular alcohol  (well the ones I know of) made of?

Courtesy of Wikipedia, I managed to find a few:

  • Vodka is a distilled beverage composed primarily of water (HA!! I was RIGHT! Fuck you!) and ethanol, sometimes with traces of impurities and flavorings. Vodka is made by the distillation of fermented substances such as grains, potatoes, or sometimes fruits or sugar.
  • Tequila is a distilled beverage made from the blue agave plant, primarily in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, 65 kilometres (40 mi) northwest of Guadalajara, and in the highlands (Los Altos) of the western Mexican state of Jalisco.
  • Cane is either of two genera of tall, perennial grasses with flexible, woody stalks from the family Poaceae, that grow throughout the world. The genera include species of bamboo. The genus Arundo is native from the Mediterranean region to the Far East. Arundinaria is found in the New World. Cane commonly grows in large riparian stands known as canebrakes, found in toponyms throughout the Southern and Far Western United States; they are much like the tules of California.
  • Whisky or whiskey is a type of distilled alcoholic beverage made from fermented grain mash. Different grains are used for different varieties, including barley, malted barley, rye, malted rye, wheat, and corn. Whisky is typically aged in wooden casks, made generally of charred white oak. Whisky is a strictly regulated spirit worldwide with many classes and types. The typical unifying characteristics of the different classes and types are the fermentation of grains, distillation, and aging in wooden barrels.
  • Brandy is a spirit produced by distilling wine. Brandy generally contains 35–60% alcohol by volume (70–120 US proof) and is typically taken as an after-dinner drink. Some brandies are aged in wooden casks, while some are simply coloured with caramel colouring to imitate the effect of such aging (and some brandies are produced using a combination of both aging and colouring).
  • Wine is an alcoholic beverage made from fermented grapes or other fruits. The natural chemical balance of grapes lets them ferment without the addition of sugars, acids, enzymes, water, or other nutrients. Yeast consumes the sugars in the grapes and converts them into alcohol. Different varieties of grapes and strains of yeasts produce different types of wine. The well-known variations result from the very complex interactions between the biochemical development of the fruit, reactions involved in fermentation, and human intervention in the overall process. The final product may contain tens of thousands of chemical compounds in amounts varying from a few percent to a few parts per billion.
  • Moonshine (In South Africa known as Mampoer), also known as white lightning, mountain dew, hooch or Tennessee white whiskey, is a high-proof distilled spirit, generally produced illicitly. The word is believed to derive from the term “moonrakers” used for early English smugglers and the clandestine (i.e., by the light of the moon) nature of the operations of illegal Appalachian distillers who produced and distributed whiskey.
  • Gin is a spirit which derives its predominant flavour from juniper berries (Juniperus communis). From its earliest beginnings in the Middle Ages, gin has evolved over the course of a millennium from a herbal medicine to an object of commerce in the spirits industry. Today, the gin category is one of the most popular and widely distributed range of spirits, and is represented by products of various origins, styles, and flavor profiles that all revolve around juniper as a common ingredient.
  • Beer is an alcoholic beverage produced by the saccharification of starch and fermentation of the resulting sugar. The starch and saccharification enzymes are often derived from malted cereal grains, most commonly malted barley and malted wheat.[1] Most beer is also flavoured with hops, which add bitterness and act as a natural preservative, though other flavourings such as herbs or fruit may occasionally be included. The preparation of beer is called brewing. Beer is the world’s most widely consumed alcoholic beverage; it is the third-most popular drink overall, after water and tea. It is thought by some to be the oldest fermented beverage.

And my darlings, there you have it. So next time you play General Knowledge or just think you’re super clever when intoxicated, let this post stay with you.

Happy days!

Tattoo Tuesday: Twilight Tats

Hello my dearies!

Why? Why would you get a tattoo of a Twilight character? Don’t ask me because I think it’s the silliest idea since the invention of the She-Wee.

Not only will you have a picture of a make-believe wolf or vampire on  you, you will end up being one of those creepy pedo-ladies called the Twi-moms one day. Then again, most of the people who get them are already moms or grandmothers, so never-mind…

OK so I’ll be the first to admit that some of the quotes in The Twilight Saga were actually quite nice – let’s forget for a moment that 90% of the quotes were stolen from Shakespeare – and that I wouldn’t wanna burn my eyes out if I saw somebody with the tattoo.

Here are the Good, the Bad and the HUGLY (hugely-ugly) of Twilight Tattoos:

The Good:

The Bad:

I REALLY hope this just a stamp…

and the HUGLY!!

and drumroll please….

I do apologize for any blindness or nausea I caused with my post.

Regardless though,

have a happy Tattoo Tuesday!

Manic Monday: The End of the Twilight Saga and the premiere I went to

Good morning my lovelies

Hope your Monday morning starts off better than mine because I think I might have a damn ear infection. Joy of friggin joys.

Anyway, I have some good news for every male that has a girlfriend with an obsession with Edward and Jacob and that is:

So, I’m sure many a boyfriend is pleased with that!

I’ll admit that at one stage I was a woman obsessed, having read (and owned) all the books, albums and DVDs of the Twilight Saga, but alas I’ve grown out of that stage and I am now a fully functional human being. I think.

On Thursday though, I was invited to be a VIP at the premiere of Breaking Dawn Part 2 at Monte Casino and being me and loving free stuff, I was there like a polar bear!

From having glasses of 4th Street Rose wines, to yummy finger snacks to popcorn and Coke and even meeting a Jacob and Edward lookalike (who actually looked nothing like them – LOL), a good time was had and well, the movie wasn’t half bad either!

There’s even one part in the movie that wasn’t even in the book… which totally confused the HELL out of me! Oh and to the one who asked me to add it here as a *spoiler*, it ain’t going to happen! Ha ha!

If you are a fan of the movies though, I don’t think you’ll be dissapointed at all.

Anyway my lovelies, I’m going to go die a slow death with these silly ears of mine that hurt so bad. Have a fabulous Monday!

Manic Monday: Only 9 Mondays left this year // New Years Resolutions?

Good morning my cherries and daggers!

Hope y’all had a fab weekend and don’t feel zombified like me – and mind you, this is after 2 cups of coffee, blegh…

Anyway, I had such a rough week last week. First I got super sick, then I went for to apply to work in America through a company and they rejected me, so that was a fail.

Last week just sucked the fun right out of me, so I’ve been spending the last 3 days downloading unlimited music and Big Bang Theory episodes figuring out my next move.

I’ve also been philosophizing – is that a word? – about the fact that there are only 9 Mondays left this year and that I should probably make my list of New Years Resolutions.

So here’s what I’ve come up with:

  • Lose weight the amount of a small baby giraffe
  • Make more Youtube videos
  • Actually own and drive a car (even though I’m scared for my life and the lives of others)
  • Go on holiday at the beach (as I haven’t even seen the beach in over 6 years)
  • Do more shoots with way more interesting themes
  • Get Liz Vicious, Jenna Marbles and Taylor Momsen to travel to SA and we can make baby bearodactyls – I wish
  • Start my own business (hopefully)
  • Own as many seasons of Supernatural, Big Bang Theory and Dexter as a person can possibly own without getting caught by the police for downloading.

#justsaying

So you see, I’m quite a simple person.

I just want the little things in life, that’s all – LOL!

What are your New Years Resolutions?

Tell me….

In the meantime enjoy The Pterodactyl Song to get my Bearodactyl joke!

***BE WARNED YOU NEED TO BE 18 TO VIEW THE SONG – SORRY KIDS***

Manic Monday: Flu, you suck butterfly balls…

Hey guys,

so I know I said I’ll be posting this tomorrow, but then I realized why I actually hate this flu more than Kim Kardashian’s face and that’s because I need to be better by tomorrow because I’ll be going to a really really important thing and it will determine my future… I can’t say much on here because of my stupid spies.. but believe me, it’s gonna be huge.

Yea this about sums me up…

Anyway so I asked my awesome peeps on Facebook for solutions to my snotty problem and that I wasn’t going to post today and here’s what they’ve said;

Paul East: I’m sorry you’re sick. Drink lots of Nyquil or just get straight up plastered and hopefully you’ll feel better when you wake up.

Kurt Zellner: Cherry i hope you get well soon take ur time post when you feel better no need to rush we only care ur feeling better 🙂

Shane A. Bridges: It’s all mental, all you have to do is make yourself believe a certain thing or object will help and it does.

Christian Baedorf: mix black tea with rum. you will sweat the flu out. or puke it out. 😉

Eliot Earle:  Lemsip and brandy. Get well soon!

Lilith Seaborne: A cup of hot rum and med lemon. Fixed my pneumonia in one day. Tastes like shit. Drink it before you sleep, because you will be wasted.

Christian Baedorf idk: if the brand “wick” is available in down there. they make “wick day med” for use through the day and “wick medi night” for sleeping time…….. thats not as hard as the rum therapy. 😀

Joseph Hanscom: hope u fell better i know the feeling.

Donavon Darkestwolf:  Brinton Honey and Fresh Lemon juice in a bit of hot black tea, or just search the net for the best possible home remedies

Andre Krige: Dear Cherry , I heard that a good cuddle and kisses from a sexi guy ;P ,, hope it helps;) hehe mwa hope u feel better soon

Xander de Beer: Weed…

I have to just say I love you guys! LOL!! You make me laugh and you are a bunch of useful nunus – hahaha!

So from what I can sum up is that I should have Nyquil, black tea, lots of rum, Med Lemon, Wick, Britton Honey, fresh lemon, Lemsip,  hugs and cuddles, believing I’ll get better and weed… Nice…

I’m gonna try a mixture of this all and let you guys know if I survive and if I’m better tomorrow. I’ve been drinking water all day, had chicken and mushroom Cup-O-Soup for lunch, drank about 2 or 3 cups of coffee and had a fizzy Viral’s Choice.

Now I gotta sort out some Rum and Weed and cuddles. LOL!

PS – Flu, you can suck my big toe, kthanksbye.

Have a fab Tuesday peeps, Tattoo Tuesday will be posted on Wednesday 7th of November.

WTF Wednesday: Horrifying Halloween Costumes

HAPPY HALLOWEEN MY DARLINGS!!

Cherry von Dagger wishing a Happy Halloween

Hope you’re all dressed up in your scariest costumes, ready for a day of trick or treating and scaring the crap out of little kids and old ladies alike.

I’ve decided to post a few pics of Halloween costumes gone wrong and ones that ARE just wrong!

Like I mentioned before, some people just look like they’ve fallen into a tub of paint and called it a “Halloween Costume”… bitch please! Effort is key. Even if it’s just a little bit.

SO here is Cherry von Dagger’s Halloween DON’Ts:

Please, please PLEEEEEASE don’t dress like this tonight. For your sake and for others. For the sake of humanity and for the children. Just don’t.

Have a happy Halloween and I hope you all get fat and fabulous from all the candy and booze!

Love y’all!

Manic Monday: My Top 5 Favourite Comedians

Hey peeps! So I haven’t forgotten about you, WordPress’s website’s been acting like a pissy-sissy little bitch the past few days, so found it difficult to blog.
Anyway, hope you all missed me shitloads as I’ve missed you!

Today I’ve decided to surprise y’all with my top 5 favourite comedians of ALL time, check them out:

5. Lee Evans

He looks like a little monkey and even acts like one, the hyperactive Brit’s a comedic genius and even looks like the kid on the MAD Magazine… or is that just me?

4. Adam Ferrara

The first time I saw the Italian New Yorker was on a friend’s pc and I could literally not stop crying from laughter even after the clip stopped, this guy is SO funny!

3. Russell Peters

Russel’s a Canadian Indian guy and his accents and jokes on different cultures is funny as hell! Even though I haven’t seen him stand up yet, friends of mine have said he’s the funniest guy they’ve ever seen.

2. Jimmy Carr

Jimmy’s not for the faint-hearted at all! He makes one-liner jokes with the sole purpose to offend you as much as you can possibly be offended and if that’s not your cup of tea, then this Brit is probably not for you… I LOVE him though!

AND my favourite:

1. Trevor Noah

Trevor’s a South African comedian, born of a white father and black mother, which was obviously taboo back when he was a kid, so he has experience with both the white and black side of South African society. His show is awesome for me because I can relate to a lot of stuff he says, as most South Africans can. Last weekend I went to see a show of his and nearly died of laughter. I hope some of you who aren’t from South Africa can enjoy his humour as I do!

So, as you can see, I have a very diverse sense of humour and I’m sure you’ll all find something here you guys like and don’t like.

Know of a comedian I should know about? Let me know!

Have an awesome Monday!

Manic Monday: Stepping in Doggie Shite

Good morning my cherries and daggers

Hope you’ve had a better start to your Monday than me.

I woke up 10 minutes before my alarm went off and just lay in my bed hoping that I’d somehow  fall asleep and it would feel like I’m well-rested when my alarm eventually went off. Well, it didn’t work that way and in actual fact I had just fallen asleep again when the alarm decided to scream at me.

I got out of bed and thankfully had a lovely hair day. I had my coffee and got dressed and as soon as I walked out of the front door, I stepped into a mushy pile of doggy-doo on the front step. Thanks Bubbles.

I’m sure Bubbles had an evil little smirk under her fluffy white Maltese fur this morning, but since I love her so much, I’ll let it slide this time.

So anyway, I had nothing to write today as my weekend was pretty uneventful so I compiled a little fact and fiction list I had found on http://pettastics.blogspot.com about dog poo myths.

That’s just how I roll:

FICTION: Dog poo is a good fertilizer! Wrong! Dog poo is completely toxic to your lawn. Often times it will burn or even discolor your grass. This misconception is highly confused with cow manure, which could be beneficial to one’s lawn.

FACT: Dog poo is bad for the environment! Under the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) pet waste is classified as a dangerous pollutant which falls into the same category as toxic chemicals and oil. Yes, your dogs poo is just as dangerous as those deadly gases.

FICTION: Dog poo will go away! Many dog owners think that dog poop will eventually fade into the ground and go away. Due to weather conditions, dog poo does clean itself up but it’s lasting effects don’t go away. Did you know that pet waste can spread parasites such as hookworms, ringworms, tapeworms and Salonella?Yes, the poop will disappear from your yard but the parasite eggs can linger for YEARS!

FACT: Not picking up dog poo at an apartment or residential community can result in a fine or eviction! Your neighbors don’t want to smell your dog’s poop, and they definitely don’t want to have those moments when they accidentally step in it. Your dog’s poo plays a large role in your community. Often times there are other dogs living in the surrounding areas that are effected from dog poo. When walking your dog, be sure to clean up after them. Dog poop has TONS of bacteria that may cause diseases that are particularly prone to children.

But they’re so adorable that we just can’t stay mad at them for leaving their shite right where we can step in it, so we just wash our shoes and move on with our lives.

Anyway have an aweome Monday peeps!
