gominokouhai: (Inspector Fuckup)

I've had a bloody awful day, started badly at 0730 (exactly) and got steadily worse from there, has only now started to wind down a bit at 2330. I had a manhattan or two when I finished work at 2100, but what I really needed was a sazerac, and I now finally have one. Well, sort of.

A proper sazerac requires orange peel and acquiring same would mean climbing two flights of stairs to pick up an orange. This is clearly work for chumps, so I have substituted the usual Peychaud's (which I have, of course, ready to hand in the kitchen) for Angostura orange bitters and dubbed the result the ersatzzerac. The good-quality rye whiskey, cognac, gomme (home-made, natch) and absinthe mist I obviously had ready to hand in the kitchen. The orange was the tricky part.

Also this evening, unrelatedly, but possibly illustratively: I walked for ten minutes to buy cigarettes that I don't even smoke any more.

I am also using slightly the wrong sort of glass for a sazerac. This matters.

I may as well just buy a fedora and have done with it. Actually that's not true. I already own two fedoras: one vintage, one that actually fits my head, and both of them I owned before fedora shaming became a thing. They are currently in storage. I had them when fedoras were still classy. Yes I am 150 years old. Shut up.

(The sazerac is also 150 years old, and it is delicious, so shut up.)

And before any of you make the obvious jibe that the fedora was never cool: I'm just going to leave this here.

"the fedora was never cool"

This is because the internet is stupid; the loathed type of hat - thanks to its association with loathsome individuals, the poor thing - is the narrow-rimmed trilby, not a fedora.

I used to wear a fedora. I looked awesome. I regret nothing (except that I no longer have my awesome fedora).
