So. It has been somewhat crazy since last Wednesday. Crazy in a sorta life changing 40th Birthday kind of way. So much more to come on that. So, stay tuned. For now, the Cliff’s Notes version: festivities were had and it was overwhelmingly about friends, wine and laughter. Life doesn’t get much better than that.
Unless you’re naked and on roller skates.
Well, then, life might be pretty darn good.
Or just breezy and chilly.
Fun 40th Birthday Fact #1: The Wine Aficionado showed up to my birthday party with this lovely gem in tow:
If you know The Wine Aficionado you would know that nothing was implied by the sharing of this wine. Well, other than the fact that The Wine Aficionado is also sometimes lured by a really cool looking label.
Truth be told, I am kind of musing it’s suggestion for future Bucket List opportunities. Right up there with meeting Portuguese people, a really great kiss and going to sniper school.
But, I’m a big fan of littering my lists with things I can actually achieve.
As for the wine review: it was a Shiraz and it was really good.
I did not expect that from a Shiraz on roller skates.**
Fun 40th Birthday Fact #2: Jules Cobb has some competition.
Knowing my love for Cougar Town, one of my friends surprised me with this monstrosity. I’m pretty sure if Jules’ Big Tippi were in a room with my Ginormous George she would crack with admiration.
I’m also pretty sure that Ginormous George will come in handy in fulfilling Bucket List opportunities listed in Fun 40th Birthday Fact #1.
And probably numerous other things.
To milestone birthdays, shockingly naked grapes, and really huge glasses to drink it all in!
** P.S. – If you want an entertaining read about wines, check out Some Young Punk’s website (the genius behind the Naked on Roller Skates wine). These wines just happen to be inspired by certain pulp fiction novels between the 20’s to 50’s. This former journalism major thinks that is pretty freaking cool.
