Social Drinker

I realize I am one. If I'm with a crowd or even one or two, let's get the bubbly poppin, the liquor flowing, the brews bustin. I don't know about that last one but whatever we're doing with the alcohol, let's make that happen. I'm not a heavy social drinker because hangovers were not hot for the '07, '08 or any of the years preceeding and are certainly not hot for the '09. Dead that... yesterday. I'm too old to be recovering 20 hours later or even 2. One or two drinks and I'm good. Know what my favorite is? Sun Garden Riesling. It tastes PERFECT. It's a sweet wine that's not too sweet and not too dry. Love it. It's hard to find, though. I discovered it when my cousin had a wine party themed bridal shower last year and everyone brought a bottle of their favorite. My favorite aunt brought this one and I've been a convert every since. And you know how she picked it? Because she thought the bottle was pretty. Hilarious. And with its help I have Rashan drinking wine now, too. Ah yeah!

Tonight Stace and I went to Dragonfly after shopping all day for ways to make my place more home-like (or just 3-4 hours but whatever) and my sunrise over tokyo wasn't as delicious as last time and I realized I don't like conch sushi. Too tough. Still love eel, tuna and yellow tail. I didn't get octopus this time but next time! I like eating those little babies. I will eat your babies!! *insert fanatic frightening laughter* I want to make eggplant parmigiana tomorrow and Stace and I are making gifts for our siblings. Also, Happy 25th Birthday to my baby sis! Oh and I forgot Rah and I went to the SGRho probate on campus and I have 8 new sorors here. I'll show pics tomorrow!

*I'm competing with Rashan to post every day this week. He started it. I'm going to finish it.

Reisling used to be my favorite wine..I haven't had a bad brand of reisling yet. But now Beringer's Chenin Blanc is my stuff. I just had some delicious Pinot Noir this weekend too...I heart wine.

I'm a social drinker, a "cause I want to" drinker, and all the rest. I'm not into the liquor anymore....vodka still wins my heart sometimes, though.

conch sushi? Yuck-o.

Um, I realized I didn't like sushi when I tasted it the last two times. It tastes too much like fish - lol.

1. Thanks so much for help with my FB dilemna. I'm going to work on that when I get home this evening.

2. Thanks for visiting my spot, I hope you'll drop by regularly - I'll be back this way for sure.

3. I too am a social drinker. 1, 2 glasses and I'm beyond good. My new drink of choice? Moscato d'Asti - white, sweet, slightly fizzy with a low alcohol content. Love it!

Hey! I'm here because I follow Nerd Girl around. Just kidding, I always read via Rashun, and today I delurk. NE Way, I'm only a social drinker, but recently I decided to start trying wines. This is because it may be a little wierd in a social setting to order "Whatever you have with Kahlua in it." I'm going to taste the one you recommended, though. Couldn't hurt!

Mmm... eel is my favourite. I also feel like a baby-eater. I love curried baby cuttlefish. They're so cute!

I am a huge fan of Plum wine that I typically have with my sushi... It's definately a fruitier wine, but good to the last drop without a doubt... but urs has be noted and will be saught out.

Reisling = happiness! I like the German Reislings the best.. I have a favorite, but the name is in German.

I like sushi, but I don't do anything that looks like what it was when it was alive. That includes tenticles. Even when I eat fried calamari, I eat the rings but not the ones that look like a whole squid. Eew.

Pass on that.

You got me drinking wine, but you wont get me eating sushi. LOL

I'm a Jameil drinker. I can go all week without a sip, but soon as we get together, I turn into a lush.
(no I'm not blaming you)
