Today I actually got to enjoy yet another day off of work. Not going to get used to this feeling any time soon with the holidays and whatnot coming up. One thing I can marvel over is that we decided to get a Wii. One game that has caught my heart by marketing it directly to my longing sense for nostalgia, is A Boy and His Blob. Good Lord I loved this game as a child, and the new one is just as silly, challenging and cute as the first.
For anyone who has not played it before (new or old) the concept is pretty simple. A boy and his white blob set out for adventure, feeding him jellybeans along the way which allows the cute gelatinous ball to transform into a variety of useful tools and shapes. One neat little feature they added to this game is the ability to hug the blob. Really, it pulls at the heart strings a lot.
In commemoration of my favorite jellybean in the game, Root Beer, I whipped up a very interesting little blend that I drank while playing the game.
Root Beer Jelly Bean
12oz Pure Cane Root Beer (like Abita or Jones)
3oz White Rum
1oz Southern Comfort
Mix the rum, bourbon and SoCo in a frozen beer mug and pour root beer on top for a frothy and frosty drink!
Not my usual blog, but I hope you guys enjoy my video game review! Also, check out this drink, I think you'll love it!
Bon boire et joue!
