Weekly Hangover

At the end of (almost) every week He summarizes what He has learned. Or just rambles on about things he wants to write about that may or may not be directly related to His wine education or even wine.

First and foremost this week I learned that Pennsylvania makes some damn good wine.

Accolades make us feel good. Gosh darnit, people like us.

Architecture for Worms. I have designed a restaurant, a few houses, and currently working on a 10-acre park. But the prospective project that has me the most excited is designing a custom worm-composting bin. My worm guy told me that he has clients that would just love to have a custom worm bin–and would definitely pay for it. File under: Only in LA.

This part is only for super-rich people, those with an annual income less than $2 Million can skip to the next paragraph. She and I are also designing a super hi-tech wine-cellar-pod. It is awesome. It is digital. It does everything. We need investors. Our super-rich readers should send along qualifications and at least 16 references with last names I recognize.

United Slurps of America is underway. These fine bloggers from these fine states are (we hope) on board:

That leaves 39 states unaccounted for. If you want to join us, by all means contact us.

Some Laws are Meant to be Broken. The other sentence that I could potentially put in bold is “Welcome to our naiveté.” We thought of United Slurps of America the same way We think of most of Our ideas; over a glass of wine with one of us saying to the other, “Wouldn’t it be cool if…..?” These conversations hardly ever include anything as boring (or practical) as wine shipping laws. So far, so good. But supposedly Georgia is a bitch. She looked up the laws yesterday and tried to read them to me, and I got bored quickly as I do whenever I hear any legalese. What I’m saying is this: We need a mule to transport winedrugs from certain states to a certain state. If interested, We will supply (but not apply) the proper lubrication.

Moving up the Google ladder. Probably due to the previously mentioned accolades we have shot up to the top (almost) of search results for “wine blog” and “wine blogs.” Please don’t take this as self-horn-tooting, until last week we were buried deep on page 13 of the results somewhere between a parenting “whine blog” and something called a “Marvin Shanken.” Not that I even check things like this (hourly). Anyhow, toot toot.

I’m just sayin’. The 2010 Wine Blog Awards will be accepting nominations on April 1st. They have, ahem, added a new category: Best New Wine Blog.

Be Sociable, Share!

  1. You guys have my vote for Best New Wine Blog, for sure.

    As far as the wine cellar pod idea, have you guys seen this?:

    Thanks Jason!

    That cellar certainly has a lot of the same technical ideas as ours. It’s very cool. I’m still interested in taking money from millionaires+ though; if they have the right last names.

  3. WOW! WOW! Good job on moving up the Google Ladder!!!! WAY COOL!!!
    And Good Luck for the Wine Blog Awards! Break a glass!

  4. I am sooo in for the Texas tasting.

    Just a small favor, can you wait until I get back from France (end of July) to do the Texas post so I can taste along with you guys….either that or you can send a hot delivery guy to send it to me here in France hahaha =P

    Looks like your building a good lineup for United Slurps! Thanks for the shameless name-drop.

    Hope you figure out the Georgia stuff. Let me know what I can do to help with that!
