What is Chaotic Good?

In most of my online profiles I use “chaotic good” as a way to describe my self. An example, from my twitter profile: “Keeping the spirit of Loki alive since 1972…Chaotic good bartender, husband, webmaster, hedonist, and Cubs fan living near Daytona Beach, Florida.”

What is chaotic good? Those that know, know. For those that don’t here is a basic definition, found online.

Chaotic good characters are strong individualists marked by a streak of kindness and benevolence. They believe in all the virtues of goodness and right, but they have little use for laws and regulations. They have no use for people who “try to push folk around and tell them what to do.” Their actions are guided by their own moral compass which, although good, may not always be in perfect agreement with the rest of society.

There is also this one-line definition:

A chaotic good character acts as his conscience directs him with little regard for what others expect of him.

So, after I color outside the lines I always remember to put the crayons away. 😀

Chaotic-Goods in media:
Captain Kirk
Robin Hood
Peregrin Took
Jim Hawkins
Austin Powers
Han Solo

Chaotic Goods in life:

Check out Amy’s Photography!

Amy was the photographer for Ben & Dianna’s wedding. I have been through a few, and she is my fave wedding photographer ever. I knew I liked her when I peeked at her notes and saw “Woohoo” written down next to wedding party. I even got a mention in her blog. See if you can find it. LOL

Bartending Basics: Vodka Drinks

On my long wedding weekend I found myself ordering a Baybreeze for TikiWife in a small town Ohio pub. My reaction was “Really?” when the cute bartender told me she didn’t know what was in it. I realized that drinks that I consider elementary might not be so simple after all. To that end, I am posting a blog about building vodka drinks. I will also be discussing this tonight on Island Time Radio.

Here you go, a baker’s dozen of drinks that you can mostly make with a bottle of vodka and three juices, including the Baybreeze.

I will start with a basic, the Screwdriver (or as I call it, the easiest cocktail in the world).

Screwdriver
1 1/2 oz vodka
orange juice
Combine ingredients over ice in a highball glass. Stir and serve.

Hairy Navel
1 1/2 oz vodka
1/2 oz peach schnapps
orange juice
Combine over ice. Stir and serve.

Madras
1 1/2 oz vodka
orange juice
cranberry juice
Combine ingredients over ice in a highball glass. Stir and serve.

Take it up a notch:

Sex On The Beach
1 1/2 oz vodka
1/2 oz peach schnapps
1 oz cranberry juice
orange juice
In a large glass, combine all ingredients over ice. Balance with orange juice. Shake and serve.

Oral Sex On The Beach
1 1/2 oz vodka
1/2 oz peach schnapps
1/2 oz blue curacao
pineapple juice to balance
In a large glass, combine all ingredients over ice. Balance with pinepple juice. Shake and serve.
I like to joke that people come from miles to try my “Oral Sex On The Beach”.

Quickie On The Beach
1 1/2 oz vodka
1 oz peach schnapps
Pour into a shaker with ice. Shake & strain into a shot glass.

Back To Basics:

Cape Codder
1 1/2 oz vodka
cranberry juice
Combine over ice. Stir and serve. Garnish with a lime if desired.

Bad Habit
1 1/2 oz vodka
1/2 oz peach schnapps
cranberry juice
Combine over ice. Stir and serve.

Baybreeze
1 1/2 oz vodka
cranberry juice
pineapple juice
Combine over ice. Stir and serve.

Cool Breeze
1 1/2 oz vodka
cranberry juice
pineapple juice
Combine over ice. Top with a splash of club soda.

Greyhound
1 1/2 oz vodka
grapefruit juice
Combine over ice. Stir and serve.

Salty Dog
1 1/2 oz vodka
grapfruit juice
Combine in a shaker with ice. Give it a quick toss and serve in a salted glass.

Seabreeze
1 1/2 oz vodka
cranberry juice
grapefruit juice
Combine over ice. Stir and serve.

Live From Indianapolis!

Is this thing on? Successful and mostly uneventful flight from Orlando. I have had some serious sinus issues the last few times I have flown. I get this sensation above one or both eyebrows that makes me feel as if the bones of my forehead are being ripped out through my face. Descriptive enough for ya? Luckily it is only for about the last 10 minutes of the flight.

Blogging while riding with the in-laws and TikiWife. My attempts at joining the conversation were basically shut of by Mrs Tiki. She is obviously excited to see her mom. Dad in law is driving so I found my music player (I thought I left it behind!) and was just treated to "Mississippi" by Bob Dylan and "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" by Jake Shimabukaro. Now "Here Comes The Sun" is playing but its actually a gray day here. Not complaining.

Anyhow, thought I would check in. Probably a little bored lol.

A couple pics. One of me repping Mad Gringo and one of me having some Goofy fun.

Later for now, be sure to follow my antics on twitter. www.twitter.com/tikitender.

Hey Indiana? Got Tiki? I’m Coming To Visit!


Mrs. Tiki & I will be in Indiana this week for a wedding. The invasion will begin Thursday (Sept 24) morning and will last until Sunday. Hey Hoosiers! I am in the wedding, so my free time will be limited. Give me a shout anyway if you are up there. Maybe we can give each other a fist bump or something.

Florida peeps, don’t be jealous. You get me the whole rest of the year!
