Show Me Where to Look, Tell Me What Will I Find


The Saturday Scavenger hunt word this week was chosen by Tara at Eclectic Spaghetti. She said shine and we did. So, first here is a shiny neon bagel sign at night.

Then here are some things I took a shine to this weekend. First and foremost, I took a shine to the mojitos that my favorite bartender S. made for me tonight. he brought the mint that he grew in his garden and everything. It was the perfect drink with all this heat and humidity. And best of all, they were served with bendy straws, and you know how much I love bendy straws.

Then I took a shine to boys wearing novelty t-shirts. It isn't often that I run into two. Count 'em, two different boys wearing novelty t-shirts out and about, but it happened this week.

I didn't drink enough to want the other guy, and I have no idea if the bottom guy really hits like a girl, but I appreciated the messages they were sending in their clothing.

ah those novelty T-shirts, the closest thing I have had to one was a simple black shirt with simple white writing on the front...the writing simply said "fuck you"

so what's the word?

Mojitos are my favorite cocktail these days and it's very difficult to find a good one. Home grown mint, muddled with love is an excellent start.

My friend Dan used to have a novelty t-shirt that just said "lesbian".

I don't have any novelty t-shirts, but I appreciate them on other people.

I especially like that the second t-shirt is pink. It takes a 'real man' to wear pink :)

I miss Breugger's :(

It takes a strong, unique man to wear not only a pink shirt, but one that says he throws like a girl.

Very fun photos! I've only had a taste of a mojito, I just never think of ordering them for myself. They look so good though! And shiny! :) I like the bagel sign too.

We need to get you one of the Bub's Beer t shirts. The guys will like that. It's a real company, and the actual correct pronunciation is "Boobs Beer". It was named after the guy who founded it.

I already want the guy in the first pic without even drinking...what does that mean?

And wow, yes, mojitos. I think my friend Rob makes the best ones.

(I miss Brueggers! My comfort food in college was a brueggers bagel with margarine (?!) and the broccoli cheese soup that I am sure came from a bag.)

What a way to NOT get hit on in a bar - a pink t-shirt that says that. wew! but I love your photos. Nice mojitos!
(why does that sound semi-sexual?)

Like the night life shine pics. Love the desperate honesty of the drinking shirt. Anything to open a door. Or get your picture taken!

So, um, what's the word?
