It is my firm belief that this here blog has the smallest reach on the internet. Heck, on days I don’t post there are only about 10 people IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD that check out my blog. Do I really care? Not entirely, but sometimes it can get to me that I spend a lot of time putting stuff together and publish. Perhaps if I wasn’t in Canada? Nah, the internet has no borders (unless you’re in North Korea I suppose) and it’s about time I stop blaming everything on the country that supplies me with free health care.
This is the part where I COULD go on a tangent about how I’ve not paid for a single physical, dentist appt, prescription, AND my GP sends me to other specialists (aka: dermatologist) just for funsies. Yeah, it comes out in the form of taxes on my pay check, but yeah ok whatever.
Then again, I should probably just stop complaining in general. Although you have to admit, I haven’t posted many woes in quite some time! Unless you follow me on twitter, then you’d see that I have an unruly hate towards Calgary Transit, but so does every other Calgarian.
Let me continue on my mini rant.. As I was saying, my blog is tiny. I have no giveaways, I don’t have traveling adventures to recount, and I certainly don’t eat anything interesting. Sometimes I log on and will word vomit a teeny tiny little post just so that some of you will remember I still exist.
I get really excited creating workouts or sharing recipes, or recounting some of the latest crap I’ve bought, but I think my favorite thing so far on my little piece of internet are my Winesday Wednesday posts! I really just love participation- knowing that some of you actually want to contribute to my weekly post of booze (and it doesn’t have to be BOOZE- I’m talking to all you pregnant, nursing, or recovering alcoholics) gives me just a huge ass feeling of awesome.
This week’s contribution is even tinier than last week’s, but no submission goes ungrateful in my eyes. So thank you to those who tweet, instagram, facebook, or email me stuff!
First up, Keith sent me one of his latests:
“Here’s a new vintage, an Italian Nebbiolo from earlier this year. Barely 4 months in the bottle, and it’s a light, tasty wine that goes down very very easy. I think this is going to be amazing in a year or so.”
Which reminds me, Tyler and I need to get our wine-making pants back on. We are gonna run low!
My friend Crystie, posted this awesome photo on my facebook:
Yup, I need to get rich SOON so this can happen. Until then, I shall drink out of the bottles. [That’s a joke, I pour it into a glass first. Most of the time]
This past weekend, I actually went over to Crystie’s house for a little blind wine party. Six of us each brought a bottle of wine that was concealed in a brown paper bag and numbered. We tested each (twice!) and voted on our favorite. We ended up picking the one Crystie picked out, but since she was hosting the party, we went with the #2 choice to win the prize- a $15 gift card to Starbucks! We then continued sipping the wines and munching on all the goodies Crystie supplied. It was a super fun night and I found some wines I liked that I would not have normally purchased.
That’s all I’ve got for you this week, so please PLEASE please send me your stuff for upcoming posts! Have a happy Winesday Wednesday everyone!
