Cravings

My newest cravings:

1) Jello shots.
I've never had jello-shots before, but they sound cool.
Here I am at the ripe old age of 36, rapidly tottering off into the horizon of old age, and I've never had jello shots.
I'm imagining either amaretto with cherry jello, or Midori with lime jello. Possibly some Triple Sec with orange jello.
Any suggestions?
I've never made these before, so I don't even know if they'll turn out right.

2) Shrimp scampi and crab cakes and seafood linguine... something zezty/savory that used to live in the ocean! I feel bad for all those people that are allergic to shellfish. It's so tasty. I love recipes that include lobster/crabmeat, yet I admit I've never actually eaten fresh crab/lobster straight from the shell. One of these days when I become hideously wealthy I'll go somewhere and order one off the menu, trying not to think about how the poor little dears are still alive when they hit the boiling water. Their last thought must be "Wow, it's hot in here... or is it just the humidity? Maybe it's-- no, what's that-- AAAUUUUGGGHHHHHH!!!!"

I've never had a jello shot either.
I think they became popular right after my wanton drinking phase ended.
But I'll bet lime jello with absolut citron is da bomb. I've got the citron if you bring the jello.

And as Jazper was eating his little shrimpies this morning, I thought, damn I could go for some Red Lobster. I used to LOVE their Fisherman's Platter -- where you get like a dozen different deep fried thingies. Mmmmm deep fried seafood goodness...

Hmm. The cat got shrimp for lunch, and I had tunafish. There's something weird here...

I haven't had a Jello shot since college, but we just used vodka and red jello...okay, we couldn't afford vodka, so we used Golden Grain and red jello.

Crab cakes, lobster, YUMMY!!
