A toast to you, ginger ale

I am still attempting (and failing) to get back on track with my eating habits, and most of my food has been the colour of either clouds or eggshells so I'm kind of sad. But on the bright side, this means I have the excuse to be 85 years old and drink as much ginger ale as I want.

The main memory I have of ginger ale is drinking it in fourth grade during a "toast" my teacher organised to celebrate receiving funding for an upcoming overnight field trip (unheard of in my school district--both overnight field trips and receiving funding for anything). I remember thinking it was gross but I drank it anyway because everyone else did, which is probably the first and only time I finished eating or drinking anything due to peer pressure. I mean, I'll taste something if the guy I like made it, but the whole bowl? No. So ginger ale, I raise my glass to you, for over time I have come to learn that I am wrong. I thank you for being gentle on my stomach and lively on my tastebuds, and for looking so damn good in a champagne flute. Here's to you, and may we need not meet under such poor conditions again.


  1. Ginger ale is my FAVORITE. I mix it with all sorts of juices and liquors. Or I drink it really strong by itself (there's some good recipes floating around pinterest). MMMMMM!

  2. I love the purple and green together! Great color combo - it always reminds me a little of the Joker but he was very stylish. :)
    Ginger ale always makes me think about how my mom has told me a thousand times how much she couldn't drink enough ginger ale when she was pregnant. I always associate it w/ pregnant people instead of old people.

  3. Thanks Elle! I really thought this was a total throwaway outfit but I received a lot of compliments on my colour scheme at work, so I guess I was wrong.

    I am drinking ginger ale right now and for a while there I totally thought I was pregnant from the upset stomach but really who are we kidding I'm as single as Liza Minelli after David Gest.
