It is official. I HATE WineDavid. He is an enabler of the worst sorts. I did so well in March and most of April, bought very little (and unfortunately was sick most of the time so could drink very little), then he started offering all of these amazing deals. Scott Harvey, case of Gard whites, Wellington Cab. That was still ok because it was most of my purchases over a two month span. Then comes the woot-off. I come out of the woot-off with 6 orders and 2.5 cases, only to go to a woot gathering (Scott Harvey dinner) which costs money, gas, etc.
At that point I was out of money, out of space, and if my wife didn't love all of these wines as much as we all do, I would probably be divorced. I vowed that I needed to stop buying for awhile so we could drink down our stash and pay off the credit cards. So what does WD do? He offers Iron Horse. I pass on it all day, trying to have some willpower, but it was all for naught. I caved like we all do. One bottle for our friend's wedding in 3 weeks and 1 for our anniversary in 3 months.
Sign, ok, NOW I am done buying. THEN WHAT DOES WD DO? He offers a damn mixed case of Pedroncelli at a laughably low price. Do I need Zin, heck no, I've got two cases of it. Do I need Cab? Nope, got a case within the last month. Do I need Merlot? Nope, the wife doesn't care for it, but Ed said this drinks like a cab...damn you too Ed! Sangiovese? sigh, I give up.
I hate you WD...end rant.
...re-open rant. And to top it all of, now I need to come up with some money to buy some suitable storage for what is now about 200 bottles of wine. All donations will be gladly accepted.
...officially end of rant.
