New drink recipe: 

One part vodka
One part coffee liquer
One part chocolate cream liquer
1/2 part creme de bananes
Two parts milk

Shake with ice, strain into glass.  It tastes like a milkshake, but with the fantastic side effect of tipsiness.  I still need to name it, or it's going to be called 'the milkshake drink' until our house runs through all of the ingredients.  

In equally big news, I have a job.  Watson Wyatt wll be hiring me as an Actuarial Analyst in June, and I'll be working in their Seattle office, six blocks from the waterfront in downtown Seattle, which will be amazing.  I will be living with my parents, which is less amazing, probably, but I can handle it for a year or so.  And if it becomes too stifling, well, there are other options!  I'm excited, and also a little terrified.  On one hand, I'm extremely, extremely lucky to get such a great job.  On the other, what if I'm terrible at it?  My daydreams about the job have taken on a very sinister turn.  

Well, actually, the alternative is pretty easy.  I'll attend bartending school and work in some tropical country until I meet visiting royalty and am whisked away to a glamorous life far away from any mean or rude numbers.

This drink sounds delicious! "Bananenkaffee mit Schuss" (banana-coffee-with-a-shot), maybe? *grins* And the news about the job sound equally delicious! (so does the alternative, really)

getting my hands on the creme de bananes is going to prove difficult so no, not yet.

It really makes the drink. Although I've found it all at both of the two liquor stores that I've been visited, so it shouldn't be too elusive!

Hi Jessie! Congrats on inventing a drink that sounds superb, and on your new job! I'm glad you'll be coming back to the west side. I live about 10 blocks from the Seattle waterfront, so we could actually get together and catch up when you get here.

How's life after graduation? Alas, I have to wait until June 14 to find out for myself...
