Yeah, thinking about it. Perhaps the dozen. But not sure yet. Might be good to have for the holidays.

Hey, I'm game, let's see...
"Miles ahead" is clearly a reference to today's Woot wine writeup, the Robert Frost parody. It evokes the other Frost poem everyone learns in school, with its haunting final refrain, "And miles to go before I sleep". It appears that the author may in fact have been asleep when writing this. A Graphosomnia diagnosis should be ruled out.

"Furby" is in part an attempt to alert readers to the expected return of the erstwhile, must-have, holiday toy, which somehow in the author's confused mind equates with the notion of a refurbished item, available from an alternate tributary of the Big River.

Hope that helps.

Basic fire was 129 a week ago or so. Might very well drop like that again. A refurb on warehouse deals.com (amazon clearance site) may also be an option. Basically, I know 50 bucks is 50% more than the budget, but at $100 price point you're better off getting them an amazon gc and telling them to make up the difference

Edit: you could also set the hundred bucks on fire, preferably in your condo.

You danced all around it. I didn't read the write up so that was pure coincidence, I've always referred to refurbished stuff as furbys, cause they both have a tendency to suck. The tributary was spot on though. Bravo.

For the record, I had yet to ingest drugs at that point. Incoherence is my norm, you'd think you folks would have figured that out by now

WELL.

I happen to be finishing the second glass of the Phat Goose that I opened on Friday which has been simply stoppered and sitting on my counter since, after having poured out a half bottle into a half bottle. And since I'm back doing my crazy diet, I've had all of like 500 calories today to soak it up!

You are not alone, my dear! Cheers to Phatness!

AGh! Diet? Yuk! I"m proud of you, girl. I need to,too,but am trying to avoid this issue. Glad you are enjoying the PHAT. I'm actually drinking a hard cider. Will switch to whatever WD brings home. I"m trying to add more wine to the vinegar crock, but we keep drinking the wine too fast...must be gift week. I love seeing your cute face on my fridge!

Hey HAK - take notes. Bring random wine home

There's a winery like a block away here that's part of a cider mill. They make KICK ASS hard cider. Like, I wish they could ship so I could send it to you guys and convince you to put them up here.

Why don't we get the hard ciders here? Does that get regulated under beer rather than wine?

I think price point. And for the record, I called the fad of hard cider about 4 years ago. WD didn't listen. Thus, I don't have 30 apple trees like I wanted. OR a cider mill...Marriage...just saying Cheron

I'm still gonna marry that guy. No, not ThatGuy. I dunno if price point would really be a factor for these... I mean, they're like $13/bottle from the winery, and they're small. I bet they'd be ecstatic being able to sell at like $9 or $10/bottle here. But shipping. Boo shipping.

Seriously, they're amazing.

And hard cider is ridiculous good.

They have a cherry hard cider called Crimson Red that's just om nom, and a blueberry one that had tommy rolling in ecstasy. You gotta come visit me before I move so I can bring you there to experience these. So. freaking. Good.

I still want to bust into that sopressata and the brie and fig spread in the fridge with the Phat Goose.

Why oh why did I have to start the diet up again like the DAY BEFORE getting that? WHY?

... oh right, because the dress came in and it was tight. RIGHT. That.

And can I just say how it sucks that guys have it SO EASY for weddings? I mean, they don't have to really watch their figures much cuz they can get their tuxes like 2 days before and it doesn't matter. But us brides, noooo we have to order the Dress like NOW and then maintain our figure for MONTHS.

Yeah. This kid is always getting into trouble. His Dad wasn't the sharpest crayon in the box back when I taught him--um, tried to teach him. The Dad resisted arrest and threatened the arresting officer, too! The manner in which they did the break-in is pretty crazy. Both of them are lucky they're still alive! Can't say any more.

Ah, yes, fitting into a wedding dress. Strong motivation. You can do it! Hmmm...yes, figure out a way to ship me some of that kick ass cider! What's the brand, maybe our new, cool, pub in Sonoma will get it somehow. I'll revisit the cider question with WD post basketball. There were AMAZING photoshop contests whose winners received monkeys..thus monkey prize. I'll look around for a link. I used to love them. I think shirt.woot kinda usurped the whole idea. Are you hanging in there with all the pre-wedding craziness? How's our boy?

Oh I've already lost the weight I put on for Thanksgiving, so I think I'm OK now Very briefened version of the diet this time around - will probably just stop after the first 10 day cycle instead of doing 5 of them like last year. Besides, I got Christmas eating to do

Our boy is theoretically asleep. He's doing just fine though At least, as far as I can tell. I haven't managed to be bridezilla enough to scare him off yet!

Brand - Northville Winery. But it would be WAY more fun if you came to visit I hear there's going to be some sort of shower thing in February or something....

All in all we're doing pretty amazing with planning. Helps that the venue we picked pretty much does it all. Still need DJ and photographer. And there's that OTHER thing that I need to start calling people about, too

Hi WF! We're drinking with you! We had a Shakespeare Board Meeting tonight--I had one for Exec and then off to a two hour choir rehearsal! I am spent! We finished off the 2007 Arrowhead Spring Reserve Meritage that we opened to have with our homemade Potato Leek Soup. The wine was not like a Cali Meritage, unfortunately. The grapes were grown in the Finger Lakes but the winery is about 45 minutes from us.

Wow, long day! Hmmm...Meritage from the Finger Lakes? Interesting. I thought Meritage was a proprietary California thing. I'm sure your soup is yummy..love to you both!
