I wanted some eggnog, but Tara doesn't drink it. Rather than try to drink a quart of the stuff, I decided to make one-person eggnog.

1 egg, separated
"some" sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup heavy cream
"enough" rum [don't judge me]

Hey +John Parker  do you think this would be more easy for you than Swype? The recognition is much better than most autocorrect implementations. 
Today we launched Google Handwriting Input (http://goo.gl/qWWhDU), which lets users handwrite text on their Android mobile device as an additional input method for any Android app, supporting 82 languages in 20 distinct scripts. It works with both printed and cursive writing input with or without a stylus. Beyond text input, it also provides a fun way to enter hundreds of emojis by drawing them (simply press and hold the ‘enter’ button to switch modes). It also works with or without an Internet connection. Learn more at http://goo.gl/j7lFbC
