I love cats, too, but… will be a lil sore if this woman’s dating life is better than mine.

D.C. bar serves up 48-oz martini
By Lauren Abdel-Razzaq

Is so big it will actually not be served for solo drinkers.

Hold on to your liver and prepare for the ultimate drink at the end of a bad work week: The Big Dirty, a 48-oz martini.

Consisting of six to eight regular martinis, the Big Dirty sells for $79.99 at downtown D.C.’s Dirty Martini bar.

But don’t think you’ll be consuming one on your own. The bar maintains it’s meant to be shared with friends.

The Big Dirty, a 48-oz martini, towers above the table at Dirty Martini in NW D.C. (Dirty Martini)“It’s definitely a group thing,” said Dirty Martini marketing director Katie Asprovski. “I don’t even think we could serve it to one person.”

Since the Connecticut Avenue restaurant’s debut of this happy hour concoction three weeks ago, Asprovski says they sell eight of them a night.

In case you were thinking of ordering one to drink by yourself — or making your own Big Dirty — you may want to reconsider.

If a 120-pound woman consumed, in an hour, the amount of alcohol in a Big Dirty, she would have a blood alcohol content high enough to cause confusion, vomiting and possibly induce coma, according to a Stanford University report. A 180-pound man consuming the same amount of alcohol in the same time period would experience blurred vision, nausea and loss of motor control.

And that’s one way to make a bad work week worse.

Paying the check on the first date-- dealbreaker?

I like to joke that I have a gay man inside of me, but this doesn’t mean I understand a thing about men. Maybe I cannot relate to straight men because they are easily confused by shiny things.

This new category is dedicated to all the advice I receive from my straight guy friends (taken or not).

#1 If the guy does not pay for dinner DO NOT accept a second date.

I was most surprised to hear this advice from some of my more err bro guy friends. This is a piece of advice that is consistent from all my straighties. Apparently if a guy doesn’t pay for dinner on the first date (no one is saying he has to always foot the bill) he’s just not that into you.

What do you think? Do you agree?

I hope that the man of my dreams serenades me with this…

This was the poem that was read at Chelsea Clinton’s wedding. Reading it leaves me with that humbling feeling of love and I think it is a very beautiful expression of amor.

The author wrote the poem after the death of his girlfriend. “I transmitted a message to her which I had failed to deliver when I’d had the chance,” said the author in his 1998 memoir.

I think that point makes it all the more beautiful to read at a wedding ceremony.

The daily routine of life can blind us to the opportunities and chances to show and express love.

Here is to love making all of our lives more enriched and worthy.

The life that I have by Leo Marks

The life that I have
Is all that I have
And the life that I have
Is yours

The love that I have
Of the life that I have
Is yours and yours and yours.

A sleep I shall have
A rest I shall have
Yet death will be but a pause
For the peace of my years
In the long green grass
Will be yours and yours and yours.
