The past two days have been a total blur.
Whenever a co-worker goes on vacation and the other managers and I have to pick up the slack, everything becomes complicated, kind of annoying and stressful. With my work week so wacky, I feel quite slighted by how quickly my two days off flew by.
On Thursday I ate my bagel, and then proceeded to do nothing. I was feeling like a zombie. I kept trying to do household things, but since the plumbing was being worked on for the FOURTH day in a row, I had no water for dishes, etc. Finally I was able to take a shower at around 4pm and I felt like a new person again!
Shortly thereafter Greenhearts showed up with my CSA delivery. Although my shower had left me refreshed, I must’ve still been a little space cadet-like, as when Aurora came into the building with the produce we had the following conversation:
Me: How’re you?
Aurora: Good, you?
Me: Okay. So how’s it going? Wait…I already asked that. You’re good. Sorry. I’m tired!
Yeah. I’m awesome.
(well, except for the beets….I’m going to try and make borscht. I keep trying to like them, I swear…)
After the veggie photo shoot, I made plans to meet up with a friend for some fun which included:
Last spring I went on my first wine tasting adventure with a couple of my friends from high school. Out of the vineyards we visited, I enjoyed Michel-Schlumberger the most. We took the tour there prior to the tasting. I don’t remember all of the really interesting facts that we learned. What I do remember is their wine! I don’t know if they had essences of raspberries and hints of beetle sweat, or whatever, but I liked them. They were very smooth..none of that bite that some wines have. I absolutely wanted to pick something up. The wine I enjoyed the most was $75/bottle. It seemed way too steep for a first timer, so I bought the above for around $40. I’ve been saving it for almost a year now. My friend and I decided that Thursday was the night!
It was delicious!
And I was drunk in about 5 minutes. Oops.
We spent the evening enjoying the wine as we watched “You Bet Your Life: The Lost Episodes”. I love love love Groucho Marx! He is hilarious. The guests are a trip as well. On disc one, two of the contestants’ names: Harry Potter and Alice Cooper.
Yes, I’m serious.
Alice Cooper was actually the mother of actor Gary Cooper. She told Groucho to shut up. Feisty!
Man. I wish the Marx Brothers were still around. The world would be a funnier place.
