Eggnog

I celebrated Christmas with my family yesterday. It was a grand old time. We laughed, talked, and caught up with each other. We had hors d’oeuvres, a nice steak dinner, and consumed copious amounts of alcohol. We had beer, wine, and a few cocktails. I even brought up a bottle of a rum and brandy mix to make some eggnog. It’s been a long time since I’ve had eggnog. At least five years I’m guessing. I was well overdue for some nog. Eggnog is traditionally a chilled dairy and egg-based cocktail with a couple of added spices for flavor. It could be non-alcoholic but that’s no fun. There are a lot of recipes for eggnog. You could make it from scratch if you have all the right ingredients, but it’s a lot easier and faster to buy some premade eggnog and then add some booze to it. That’s what I did. Sprinkle a little nutmeg on top and you’re in business. Pacing is important when consuming eggnog. Drink it too fast and you’ll get a stomach ache (or possibly salmonella). Drink it too slowly and it will curdle. It’s a holiday drink most enjoyed around Christmas. I wouldn’t bring a batch of nog to any Fourth of July festivities. It’s too hot. Milk and eggs are a bad choice.

Ray J

Ray J is a wannabe R&B singer/actor. A few people have heard of him because he’s Brandy’s little brother and also because he fucked Kim Kardashian before she was all used up. He basically owes everything he has to Brandy. She got him a recording contract and a role in Moesha. He was sort of in the public eye, but nobody was looking at him intentionally. It was still enough to get hot chicks to sleep with him, and one of those hotties was Kim Kardashian. They went out for a while and they made some home movies and one of them got leaked on the Internet. At that point, Ray J was already a falling star and Kim was a virtual unknown. The sex tape reminded a few people that he was still alive, but it turned Kim Kardashian into a household name. After the sex tape she got offers to do a reality show called Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which led to all of the terrible spin-offs and the eventual 24-hour Kardashian Network. The sex tape launched her career into the stratosphere, and Ray J’s stalled out. He’s always been second fiddle and he always will be. He’s kind of a joke because he’s not famous enough to be a punchline.
