Rhum Tum Tum

Santa was sweet this year. He brought me a Disaronno (imported by Bacardi USA) gift set that included the booze, a mixing glass and recipe booklet. While flipping through the recipes, the Elixir of Love mixture caught my eye. But where, oh where, will I find White Rhum? I checked and saw they only have regular ol' rum. So I Googled 'White Rhum' and discovered Rhum Barbancourt from Haiti. I'm curious why Bacardi would be encouraging the use of a competing brand of rum, but who am I to understand the minds of a huge distiller and importer? I wanted to head to the liquor store yesterday, but being Christmas day and this being Idaho, they were closed. I'd go today, but this being Sunday and being Idaho, they are closed. So I guess tomorrow I will be heading to the neighborhood, state run liquor store to see if I can score some White Rhum to make the Elixir of Love.

The recipe is presented correctly on the Disaronno website.

Insurance, Not Spelling, Specialists

There's a new Allstate agency in Bakerfield (sic), CA specializing in insurance. I'm thankful they're not specializing in spelling. We'd have to run screaming into a burning building if they were. Please, Insurance Folks, please protect what's most important... your spell check program!

For y'all who don't know, the town had more than one baker.

Thanks to Vanessa for spotting this SD.

It's nice to know we can count on the good folks at the Hayden Cinema 6 to provide Spelling Disaster fodder every once in awhile. It appears they are in desperate need of a new group of letters, but does that negate their responsibility to at least try to spell movie titles correctly? Could they have mangled Burlesque any more? And do we really want to see Meg's Mind in 3D? And what is up with Abe not stopping? It's a tangle(d) web they have woven.
