What does this sentence imply?

Have you ever read ”The third man "by Green? Here is a sentence. "One mix one's drinks." Like, "He told me vaguely that he had been mixing his drinks." Or " If you stayed around in a hotel- lounge, sooner or later incidents occurred; one mixed one's drinks." Or, ...he firmly explained to me, when I accused him of once again mixing his drinks." Well, what hidden meaning does it have and is it common expression for native speakers to imply .. something?

mix it up

I'll be working outdoors most of the summer (yaya!) so I've been looking to stock up on music mixes. A lot of the work will be remote so I won't be able to stream, thus it needs to be downloadable. A few more details underneath. [more inside]

Anyone know where I can buy Edmonds Shaker Pancake mix?

I know Edmonds Shaker Pancake Mix is a New Zealand product but was wondering if anyone knew a shop I could buy this at in the States. I will be in Seattle and Boston for a little bit so either an online shop that ships to there or a physical shop in those cities would be great. I usually try World Market but they don't seem to have this.

Looking for any new creepy sounding tracks for my annual Halloween mix. New, or new to you; original songs; cover songs; or even soundtrack selections work. (If a recommendation has appeared on a previous AskMeta thread for Halloween mix tunes, less candy for you!)

Santa's soundtrack, distributed

This is probably a stupid question for you smarties. I'm putting together an epic mp3 mix for all of my friends (tracks will be purchased from Rhapsody) and I don't know how best to deliver the goods to all of the inboxes on my list. First, how can I transfer the purchased tracks to the peeps? And can I do it so it's a package, tracks in order, so that it's easily downloadable to the various devices of my audience? I am thinking and/or hoping that this is an easy thing. I'm trying to avoid burning a stack of cds, and I just know that there is a better way to give the gift of groove to my excellent friends.

Help identify this funk tune

My SO heard this song on a DJ mix years ago and has been trying to find out the title/artist ever since. We’ve Googled the lyrics and tried to identify it using Shazam, but have had no luck. He’s uploaded a clip of it here. Since this was taken from a mix, it might be played back at a different pitch than it was recorded at. Can anyone identify it?

Why do I have to put the hot chocolate in first?

When I make instant hot chocolate, the directions always say to put the hot chocolate mix into the mug and then pour hot (not boiling) water on top. This does seem to produce better results than stirring the mix into hot water, although that might be confirmation bias. Does this actually work better? Why? [more inside]

Remix the 80s and 90s for me!

I'm looking for songs that mix 80s and/or 90s pop with other genres. My favorite example of this is Orbital's Halcyon - And On And On Live that samples Bon Jovi's You Give Love A Bad Name and Belinda Carlisle's Heaven Is A Place On Earth. Any other genre is fine but electronic genres are preferred. Thanks!

I wanna do bad things with you.

A friend of mine is looking for "awesome, sexy, scary, dark, Halloween-type songs that [she] can do burlesque to." She's thinking along the lines of the theme song from True Blood, although she's already done a routine to that song. So please, you masters of mixes, give us your scary-sexiest songs.

Recommended hot chocolate for hot water?

I'm looking for recommendations for hot chocolate mixes which don't require you to add them to milk (it's probably best if they already contain the milk, but that's not required as long as it doesn't taste thin and watery when you put it in hot water). I'm not lactose intolerant, but I don't usually have milk around, plus it's much easier & more convenient to heat up water. [more inside]

Doctoring up Dr. Oetker

I have to make a Halloween party dessert on a tight schedule. In my cabinet I have a box of Dr. Oetker organic blondie mix and a can of organic pumpkin. According to the box directions you're supposed to add 1/4 C. melted butter and 2 eggs to the blondie mix. Can I add some of the canned pumpkin? About how much, do you think? How much of the butter or eggs would I leave out to make it still hold together with the fats, but not too gloppy with the added pumpkin?
