Started watching Bamboo Blade, an anime about a girl’s kendo team. Good to know there are shows out there that can pleasantly surprise you. Genuinely charming and not the fanservice schlock I was afraid it would be.
for the most part, i stick to cheap wine and only drink at home since i’m a lightweight. sometimes i order a fancy cocktail at the met, but those are /ridiculously/ alcoholic, WHICH SEEMS LIKE A BAD PLAN IN A BUILDING FULL OF FULL OF ART.
Seems like the kind of thing that might help when you get to the modern art or abstract sections. ;)
I’m not really sure how to respond to this. Like anyone who is snobby while drinking $20 wine is horrible but….I am deeply terrified of $4 wine.
As long as you stay away from anything that’s a “blend” or comes in anything other than a proper bottle you can find some surprisingly good ones.
i never want to drink good wine because people say you’ll never like bad wine after that, and i can’t afford to not like bad wine…. .… .
Cheers to that. Bad wine can be easily improved by making it into Sangria anyway and you don’t feel bad about doing it with cheap wine. Just about the only thing I won’t drink is Mad Dog 20/20, which I’m convinced isn’t actually wine, but grape juice mixed with grain alcohol. However, I am that way about Scotch. I’ve only ever had Johnny Walker Red Label, which I understand is like the Pabst Blue Ribbon of Scotches.
I am like the exact opposite of a wine snob. Sure, your $20 bottle of Cabernet-Sauvignon may contain dark, fruity notes of blackberry and a lingering medium body, but after the first half of the bottle is gone you’d be hard pressed to distinguish it from $4 Bottom Shelf of 7-11 “Sweet Red Blend” .
