To anyone who thinks I drink a lot of wine.



Now, maybe you're wondering, why is Eve talking about amputees? Well, that's from the final segment of the diavlog about sex and economics. On the subject of amputees — and possibly influenced by what's in that glass — I tell a joke:

That was an amusing drinking glass. The official toasting goblet of Bloggingheads resembles a peanut butter jar. The whole thing filled with vodka at the beginning and drunk down to that at the end would be funny. It must be a Wisconsin custom in the winter.

So, does Eve keep that cellphone next to her head all day long? Maybe adorable/ditsy/fun is a side effect of cellphones, vodka, or wine (or any combination.)

Cellphones are an antidote to adorable/ditsy/fun.

And it's not just that people think Althouse drinks a lot of wine, it's that they think she drinks BOXES of wine. It's like Michael insulting my weight by telling me to go eat a Big Mac. The hell? If Althouse were a drunk, she sure as hell wouldn't be doing it drinking boxed wine. Just like I'm not fat from eating Big Macs. Right now it's homemade chicken broth and some more Balthazar baguette.

Anne, i just watched the whole Bloggingheads episode and it is very impressive. You do much better work than the other folks at Bloggingheads.

And to anyone who doesn't think you are self-absorbed:

Let's see, we have Exhibit A, B, C, D, E and F.

I'm not self absorbed.

Palladian,

Maybe Althouse would go for the so-called aristocrat version of such, you know, because these are difficult times. Not good to be too flashy.

Aside: In the pursuit of modesty maybe folks will finally ditch the stupid labeling that covers some of the stuff they buy. I'd like to see a lot fewer LV monograms (and the equivalent for other manufacturers.)

And, anyway the best stuff doesn't usually have that branding all over it, e.g. Taiga is durable (of course the luggage develops scratches fairly easily, but those are superficial, and they add character) and tasteful, especially since the slate color was introduced a while back.

Well, that's about as much complaining about the monogram and praising Taiga as I can manage w/o getting to the point where I'll need to to grow a pair. Now, I'm going to clean my garage, as a palate cleanser.

It's OK to drink wine, as long as you don't whine when you're drinking.

Everyday I drink my wine.
Everyday I feel fine.

Ch. Latour should start boxing their grand vin.

Nice quaff! I'll bet you could drink her under the table.

MadisonMan said...

So now you're drinking gin?

So now you're drinking gin?

No, only I do that. I believe she said hers was a vodka.

MadisonMan said...

Yes, I hadn't listened before I made my comment.
