Jelly Bean Martini For My Peeps


Jelly BeansSomething has come over me. Look what I have done. I invented a martini that tastes like a Jelly Bean. That’s cute, a little too cute. Did I just use the word cute?

Oh, it gets even worse. I made a cute video too. I call it Peeps For My Peeps. You’ll have to watch it to see why. But I’ll give you a hint. It’s cute, real cute. There’s that word again.

I can’t really account for my mood. Maybe it’s the Easter holiday. Or maybe it’s just the simple fact that it’s spring– because I think I have turned over a whole new leaf. I have become someone I hardly recognize. I feel happy and peppy and bursting with love. Do you remember that toe-tapping tune from Felix Unger and the Odd Couple?

Of course you don’t– you’re too young! Funny how quickly my mood sours.

Now I regret having made this cute little video ode to spring. Why did I make it so happy and peppy?

I don’t really consider myself someone who does cute well. Or sweet either. Same goes for adorable, beautiful, charming, dainty, delightful, pleasant, and pretty. Darn it. If I had to make a duck video why didn’t I make duck a l’orange or something? That way at least the duck dies in the end! Instead I am stuck with a video where the duck looks all happy and peppy and bursting with love.

I don’t know what came over me. This is so out of character. Quel Dommage. Avoir d’un printemps heureux. Oh no. I am slipping into French. The language of love. That can’t be a good sign. You better make my Jelly Bean Martini a double… GREG
