Brittany Murphy RIP, surprisingly died December 20, 2009 at 32 years young of age. The Los Angeles, California Fire Department was dispatched at 8:00 am to Brittany's home where she had collapsed in her bathroom. Her family and husband, Mr. Simon Monjack a British screenwriter of whom Brittany had married just two years earlier in May of 2007 in a private Jewish ceremony. Another Hollywood star dies before her or his time; an autopsy was preformed today - December 21, 2009 to determine cause of death. According to the coroner on duty "it appears to be natural" referring to Miss Murphy's death.
Brittany was born on November 10. 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia and starred in such films as "Clueless," "Girl Interrupted" and "Riding in Cars with Boys" along with dozens of other films. She was also the voice of Luanne Platter of the animated series "King of the Hill." Brittany gave her mother constant credit for her on film success; her mother raised her in Edison, New Jersey and then to Los Angeles so that Brittany could pursue her dream of becoming an on screen actress. My Bad Tequila will be following this story closely as we admired her talent as an actress and singer.
Tequila Time: Quite often I am asked about Mescal vs. Tequila; what is the difference? are they the same? which tastes better? Today I tackle this task of Tequila vs. Mescal. First and greatest difference is that some Mescal brands have "a worm" inside their bottles. The reason for that, is that prehispanic cultures within Mexico had an ancient belief that aphrodisiac powers. My belief is that Mescal messed you up so bad that your clothes came off as a result of wanting sex, so in a way the old belief is true - it was an aphrodisiac. Why the worm? These worms live in the Agave plants and are hand picked during the monsoon or rainy season. They are stored in the large mescal vats or barrels and then sorted and placed into bottles towards the end of the bottling process. Like mescal, the worm is an acquired taste. I am nearly there in acquiring a taste for agave worm, after years of hard liver practice. This is the end of the lesson; on another day I will go into more differences, at least now you know mescal has the worm in the bottle and Tequila does not. My advice = drink Tequila and save Mescal for the college frat boys and bachelor parties, times like those are when a worm may come in handy.
Monday Night Football on ESPN tonight featured Eli Manning and the New York Giants kicking the team of Obama and Congress's Washington Redskins in the Capital City. I believe the Washington and Lincoln Monuments were embarrassed tonight by the Redskins horrendous performance. The New York Giants showed why they have won a Super Bowl in the last couple of years as little brother Manning is becoming quite the NFL star. Only 1 week left of regular season football. I do need to congratulate my Amigos - the Arizona Cardinals in winning their division two straight years. Way to lead them Mr. Kurt Warner. Will they return to the Super Bowl?
