1 UP!

While rocks currently seem to be taking up most of my time, video games and all things nerdy have always been source of entertainment.  With the Halo: Reach game being launched while I am still up at camp, I was looking for some video game themed cocktails to try once I got home, and had the chance to play the new game.

What I came across was this great, with tons of video game inspired drinks and drinking games:

The Drunken Moogle

 Including things like The Metroid:

Or how about a Blankatini for all you Streetfighter fans:

Go give this site a browse, if you are anything like me and enjoy both cocktails and video games!
Only 5 more days until I am out for my break!  Weooo!

While sitting up here in our camp, I've been doing a little pondering.  Just why is it that geologists seem to drink so much?  It never seems to fail, any sort of social event involving geologists somehow seems to end up with drinks.  Cards?  Drinks.  Curling?  Drinks.  Bowling?  Drinks.  Drinks? Drinks.

So I did what a good scientists does, and went to do a little research.  The lazy girl geologist type of research, which really just involves google.  I didn't expect to find anything, but lo and behold I find this over on

Why Geologists Love Beer

That's right, bar staff aren't allowed to take a holiday during this one specific week per year because, "The Geologists are coming".  Hah!
