RMC and Purple Nurples


So, to recap (cos I’ve been meaning to do this fer ages now) who’s in me Fantasy Royal Marines Corps:

Sean Bean, Max Beesley, Ewan McGregor, Clive Owen, Christian Bale, Jason Isaacs, Robert Carlyle, Daniel Craig, Karl Urban, Hugh Jackman, Philip Glenister, Gerard Butler, Pierce Brosnan and Sean Pertwee.

To recap the rules: have to be British-born or from the Commonwealth (see what I did there?), capable of doing The Knee Thing to any bugger’s forehead / nose, and of course have one endearing feature (e.g., good with pithy comebacks, cutting remarks, or that old chestnut, look good in army fatigues).

So to the new recruits:

David Tennant (I saw ‘Secret Smile’, I’m not going to argue with him), John Barrowman (the only man in ‘Doctor bloody Who’ who carries a gun and will shoot people in the head – or just beat the crap out of them – and he’s “not just heterosexual”), Nathan Fillion (Cap’n Mal sir – and he’s Canadian), Kevin Smith (no, the other one – we will forever be in love with Ares’s arms, his witty banter and wonderful rendition of brooding, smouldering manliness. And he was a Kiwi. Oh Ares, you are missed), Sir Sean Connery (do I need to explain why?), Aaron Kwok (hey, I saw ‘After This Our Exile’. And he were born in Hong Kong in 1965, so I’m pulling territories).

Ok, so consider yerself caught up now. However, if there are any more you’d like me to add, let me know. We’re doing actors, not characters, remember.

And on to something also in the Woot!Fun category: it started out as a joke, then became a mission, and later this week I’ll be able to get down to the bottle shop in Central and get the ingredients in. And me Red Cross parcel (containing an optic, I believe) is arriving any day now – I love it when a plan comes together. Anyway, finally found a few recipes for the infamous Purple Nurples. Good job there’s more than one, cos I can’t ingest coconut. So take yer pick here:

Purple Nurples (#1)

1oz Malibu Coconut Rum
1 oz Triple Sec
1/2 oz Blue Curacao Liqueur
2 oz Cranberry Juice
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with Ice. Shake and strain into a glass.

Purple Nurples (#2)

1/4 oz Blue Curacao liqueur
1/4 oz vodka
1/4 oz apple schnapps
1/4 oz sweet and sour mix
1/4 oz grenadine syrup
Pour all ingredients over ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake, strain into a shot glass, and serve.


How fab is that? So apart from ‘Supernatural’ season 2 finishing on a very satisfying moment last night on telly, there’s not a lot to watch. Oh, except praps that new HK film ‘Brothers’, which looks like another famous-names-Fest, and of course Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas in 3D at the new cinema in Kowloon Station. Might have to make the crossing to big bad Kowloon to see that – can you imagine Jack Skellington in 3D? Ace, I tell you, all kinds of aceness waiting to happen.

So that’s it then. Peach and lube everyone!
