The holiday haze…


What day is it? Feels like a Monday… or.. err..uhh.. maybe Tuesday. Yeah, it’s Tuesday right?

That darn holiday haze. You get an extra day (or extra couple of days) off and the whole next week is just ‘off’. Not that I think anyone would or will complain about having some extra time off work, it’s just that your body and your mind can’t seem to reset that easily.

So. Just in case you need some assistance. Today is Wednesday, Hump Day!

Although if you truly want to get technical, there really isn’t a Hump Day this week from the traditional sense. I mean most of the traditional blue-collared schedules are 4 days this week…. which means there isn’t really a ‘hump day’?

Uh, yeah. I’m over-thinking this one.

As I was saying… GUESS WHAHT DAY IT IS??!!

Oh c’mon… you knew I had to find an excuse to share my favorite video.

All about me Monday

2014-05-26 14.27.12So. I confirmed my suspicions today. I am not a wine drinker. I’m not a fan of wine. I do not enjoy anything related to wine.

I put forth a valiant effort. I went on a mini-wine tasting hopscotching tour today in our local are. While limited in selection I got the just of the whole ambiance.

I thought I’d like some form of a sweet wine, because my memories of the only wine I ever liked was some sort of ‘berry’ flavored wine. So I was told to sample all things sweet.

Nope. No go.

I branched out and tried the traditional stuff, the dry selection, I even went so far as to sample the ‘hot’ or ‘warm’ prepared wine and took a stab at the specialty sparkling wine.

Nope. No go.

I can’t seem to get the after-taste out of my mouth. It’s just not for me. I do not have the palette for this stuff.

In the end I discovered that I enjoy any type of wine that doesn’t taste like wine. Pure and simple. LOL

On the positive side of things, my wife and I got to share the experience with my awesome in-laws who are more of the wine-drinking connoisseurs. They held our hands, taught of the language and proper wine-tasting etiquette while we stumbled through this wine-tasting spree. We had a great time laughing and enjoying the warmth of the sunshine. We had some great weather. All in all a good day in my opinion.

Now please, pass me that glass of water…
