Weekend Review

Last night my roommate and I hosted a wine tasting. We invited friends and told them each to bring a bottle of wine*, and put the bottles in brown bags so that they couldn't be identified. We tried each wine and discussed our impressions and opinions of each. That part was hilarious--none of us is a wine afficionado, so the comments were more, "Oh yeah, I like this one cause it's...um...well, it's sweeter than the one before," than, "This wine has a smooth, velvety texture with notes of vanilla, blackberry, and pear," or whatever.

I'm sure we violated a few rules of wine tasting. First of all, we actually drank the wine. So at the beginning we were trying to be all scientific about it but then as we were drinking our samples we just got drunk. And then the secrets came out. Among other things, I remember discussing parental sex, boyfriends' porn, and "best erotic passage in a novel." Oh well. If you can't get personal and embarrassing with your friends, who can you get personal and embarrassing with?


*Most of the people just brought a bottle of wine, as in one single bottle. I would like to take this opportunity to give a shout-out to Alli, who brought not only a bottle of wine, but also a bottle of blackberry port AND a bottle of whisky. Her reasoning? She was worried that there wouldn't be enough to drink. You have to love friends like that!

  • maybe we should wait a couple of weeks before you have people over. i know that i find it difficult to drink to appropriate levels 2 nights in a row.

  • Always best to drink the good wine first, and then the plonk...of course i once hosted a scrabble party and we consumed several bottles of good wine and then out came the plonk and the game deteoriate...not sure what was worse, Denise arguing that Pravdo was a famous Russian newspaper or me trying to convince everyone that IQ was a word...
