There Will Be Birthday August 19, 2008

My friend Jen’s birthday was on Saturday, so we had the There Will Be Blood party. Our friends Angelina and Eddie showed up as well as Scott’s friend from work, Nevin, and his wife Robin. We had steak for dinner, followed by a rousing round of “Pin the Bastard in the Basket,” Wii bowling, chocolate lava uh, oil cakes, milkshakes, wine, and Bloody Marys. Oh yeah, and Jen brought a bottle of something called “Chocovine,” which was chocolate mixed with wine. That was gross and the bottle is still sitting, almost entirely full, in my fridge.

All in all, I’d say the party was a success. Some pictures are here if anyone’s interested.

Scott and I walked around our neighborhood yard sale on Saturday. I wish I had known beforehand that it was going on, because man oh man do we have some junk to unload. I did, however, end up with a shiny new electric cookie press, still in the box with all its parts, for only $5. It came with 25 different discs as well as a bunch of frosting tips. I am going to make the hell out of some spritz cookies sometime this week. (I also got The Wiz on DVD and Sports by Huey Lewis and the News. Don’t judge me.)

First, congrats to Emily and Steve on the arrival of Brigid! I can’t wait to see more pictures.

Second, I was at Jungle Jim’s yesterday, wandering through the soda section, when I saw this staring out at me:

In case you can’t read the label, it says “Vignette Wine Country Soda.” There were three flavors on the shelf: pinot noir, chardonnay, and rosĂ©. I grabbed one of each and brought the chardonnay one to work with me today. It’s basically just chardonnay grape juice and carbonated water, so it doesn’t taste like wine, but I really like it, particularly the fact that it’s not loaded down with sugar.

I guess that’s enough product placement for one day. CAPITALISM, WOO
