You know you're an alchoholic when ....

... You schedule and post a second future "wine tasting" before you've finished the next future "wine tasting".

Her birthday, my wedding day, it's gonna be a drunken woot night. If I find sufficient morels I'll send some their way.

Don't like you. You're just jealous and making jokes because you can't make it to either of these.

You, I like!! I hope your soon-to-be-wife likes wine as much as you (she may cut into your stash, but will give you less grief for replacing it).

You guys are so eager. Can't even wait for #3 before you start on #4, can you?

Not that I can really blame you.

Was I the only one who first thought Bowtie was questioning his ability to find morals?

That's been a well-established fact for some time .


As for impatience, we were trying to plan one date, having trouble, and realized that two of the best options were 6 weeks apart -- so why not do both? Once that was established, it seemed easier to separate the discussion for planning purposes.

To find them, one must first have had them. In related news I'm putting together a team to run for governor of my state.

We're still trying to get her for the 2nd (yes, only the 2nd!) SanDiego/Temecula Round. Nobody loves us poor SoCal Wine.Wooters ...

And can you blame us? What with nallie and her million-baby-death-squad, clayfu (a.k.a. wine ninja), and mr. smiley (you -- who can trust a man who smiles as much as you do?). It's just not a safe place for those us unacquainted with battle-field living.

I don't know if we could have enough variety in tdoing only sparklies... with sparkling red being fairly hard to come by, and I think palates get more fatigued b/c of the bubbles.

Doesn't have to be only sparkling, just the major theme. Got a decent sparkler? Bring it along with a still from the same varietal or winery; or pair off with someone else who'll do so.

I'm sure we'll get a number of Cabs, Pinots or otherwise standard wines at the "Completely Different" themed party, er, tasting, too. And that will be a good thing.

I did not mean to sound whiny hehe. It was just a bad night at work and I was a little bummed to find out I could not make the tastings again. Its just bad luck on my part, since I work every other weekend I basically have a 50/50 shot, and I just happen to be working on each of the 3 events I have known about. Obviously you guys have to organize it to be the best date for the biggest number of people, I would not expect it to be set up any other way.
I will keep watching the forums of course and look forward to making it out to one of these sometime , sounds like a lot of fun. I hope you all have a good time =)

Ack! Lasgar and Tripgrad: my SINCEREST apologies! Both of you should have been listed under regrets, not NOT INVITED. The latter group was ment for Mr. Mark (lovingly not invited, of course). I will correct!

It's ok =) , apology accepted . My first instinct was that it was a joke or just a mistake, but its hard to tell with text, especially when you do not really know the person. And then I wasn't sure because Mark was clearly marked as a joke with a big :P , and Tripgrad and I where not. Thanks for clearing it up.

<phew> thanks for pointing it out though. The last thing I need is someone out to get me on this coast too (nallie has already made the west coast off limits for me).

I'll also have some Sparkling Shiraz (brands TBD -- Total Wine carries Hardy's -- which pairs with their whiskers blake tawny -- and Trevor Jones -- which pairs with their Jonesy Rare Aged "Port", though I'm rather attached to the Majella). I may be +1/+2/+3, but I'll update closer to the date.

Lisa and Rebecca are coming, too. I'm bringing the Mumm 2002 Devaux Ranch, a N.V. Commandaria St. Nicholas or St. John and some baklava. (I can't believe I'm actually going to make one. Haven't done it in 5 years.) If TG314 can pass the St. John down to L, then I'll bring a St. Nicholas and we can do a horizontal tasting. (Or as horizontal as you can get in an N.V. fortified wine.)
