Day three into NaBloPoMo and I’m reduced to the Minimum Blog Requirement. Good thing I’m an unofficial NaBloPoMo’er so I don’t feel so bad for my lack of motivation today.
Today over lunch hour, I went to a nearby mall with a couple co-workers for lunch (Five! Five dollar! Five dollar foot looonnnnggg!) and some window shopping. We stopped in Bath & Body Works so D. could use a gift card and while we were in the store I sniffed about five million different bath products. By the time we walked out I had a headache and smelled like a hooker on Christmas Eve. But I did buy a pretty-smelling new body spritz, so. Win/win.
I realized today I have no knowledge of wine. Well, I know the difference between Reisling, Chardonnay, and Merlot, but, uh. That’s about it. I figured this out while browsing my local Wine and Spirits Shop (We don’t have ‘liquor stores’ in PA, you see) looking for belated birthday gifts for coworkers. I don’t know which wine is better than which. I don’t know what’s supposed to be sweet and what’s supposed to be dry. I do, however, know that Wild Vines Raspberry Merlot is friggin’ delicious. In the end, I purchased two nice moderately-priced bottles, and I’ll keep my fingers crossed that I chose right. I heard that a local community college offers a non-credit wine appreciation course. I think I might have to sign up.
