Just had to re-search for it. Originally it was just an image search, but I do see that here is where that glass can be purchased.

and what are you pairing with the fish? And is it coming from your stock or are you raiding Cheron's?

Edit: also, do you guys call each other by your screen names? Is it a cutesy thing you guys do? I've always wondered that about couple's wooters.

No, I didn't buy it (yet). Thought I'd wait to see if there might be a wooter(s) out there that might want to buy it for you/us first.

Well since I'd be pulling from a bottle already in my mom's basement, it would be some white from either my bit of stock in the rack there or from my mom's stock (which is stuff I've sold her from my stock). I think the rack there is mostly down to just Triacip and F-Bomb, so it would likely be one of those.

As to your other question, no we don't. Though she does call me names like wuss, and weirdo, and crazy and things like that.

Silly HaK ... thinking we're going to spend that kind of money on non-wine items. Besides, our budgets for your wedding is more along the 99¢ Store inventory kind.

But we don't need more wine....unless ppl pool together to pre-order us a case of 2012 (or 2013, if it turns out to be just as good a vintage) Kronos.

I don't think you need to worry about either of those two scenarios.

But I was just responding to the first culprit, so I should get a pass, too. And bahwm should get a pass because...well, because she's bahwm.

Thanks. At least I get a birthday greeting, even if you won't cut me any slack on that (extremely innocuous) earlier transgression.

Actually, you counted as the two on your own! (Because the first actually said: "EDIT: oops, I did a mommadeb" AND you enticed poor innocent bahwm into posting there too!)

bahwm always gets a pass!

I call shenanigans! I'm not the one who posted "EDIT: oops, etc." Nor did I entice bahwm into anything. But I'm sure I'll think of something sooner or later.

So there's ten woot sites, not including deals, cause deals doesn't count. Only half of them partake in the wootoff. That shouldn't bother me as badly as it does, but it does. Not that I buy anything on the wootoffs, oooooohhhh, you want me to pay the same price as you just offered this for when I didn't want it then, SIGN ME UP FOR THAT AND EXTRANEOUS COMMAS!

My exact thoughts earlier... not to mention, they start up the new tool/accessories sites, but don't have enough product to support woot-offs for them?

So, they got the case of Wellington to me perfectly (thank goodness), but now the Lineshack is tracking to the incorrect address. Already emailed support, but so far no response. Will email again and see what happens.

I generally chuck a beer and some Apple Cider Vinegar in that pan for steaming purposes. I think this weekend I'm gonna have the butcher slice me some top round 1/4" thick and smoke some jerky. Sooooo much better than anything you'll ever buy.

Too busy with exam grading to pay much attention to anything! And, a Happy Birthday to my wonderful husband, ddeuddeg. Hopefully, by tomorrow night, all grades will be in. Yippee! (I say hopefully, because we now have to scan all of our multiple choice answer sheets through a copier to a website that then scores that portion of the exam (not the speaking or writing) and sends us our scores within 24 hours. Those who scanned theirs before me have all received their results. I still have not. Therefore, I cannot total all of the parts of my exam!) Then, I'll just have to worry about figuring out where I can put things away at/from school.

I just checked my school email. My results are in! Not! Only the results for about three students per class are visible! It took 12 hours for those results to show up! I could have corrected them by hand faster than that! I may well have to. Ah, technology! On the other hand, glitch number two: I cannot update the grades on the other website because it won't load! This sometimes happens around midnight. They must re-boot their system or something like that. I guess its time to go to bed. Tomorrow is another day.
