There's something about certain scents. I made tomorrow night's dinner, bangers with fried onions, and the house just smells so good. Makes me want to eat it now! Last year, our new upstair's neighbour came down to introduce herself and said she had one complaint: that I made everything smell so good. Apparently, her family would come home and smell my cooking downstairs and think she'd made dinner and then were bummed it wasn't her.

Then the other cheer me up: I joined the wine club I'd been wanting to for the last many years. Looking forward to my fist shipment! Should I do wine tasting LJ posts? LOL!

Finally got to talk to my mum tonight, after nearly two weeks, so that made me feel better too.

I couldn't write tonight, at least not on finishing what I've been writing, I was too twitchie and anxious, but I really hope to get it done by the weekend. One really nice surprise is the sudden burst of feedback I've been getting on ff.net. Was a nice upside to the day.

Watching American Idol, and I now have the urge to watch Don Juan DeMarco!

So, it's back to work tomorrow. Whee!

Tell me, how does one go about joining this wine club? It sound sinteresting.

There's all sorts of wine clubs. This one is one one of my favourite wineries runs. But you have to live in a state that allows out of state alcohol deliveries -- many don't (I live in state, so no worries on that account). Basically, you get two or four bottles four or six times a year.

This site has info on wine shipping out of state, and what states allow it:

*blink* there are laws against out of state alcohol deliveries? Surely there's still enough alcohol within any one state for people to get ludicrously drunk if they want to, so why bother? (although I did get glared at by a policeman for carrying a slab of beer in Utah once..)

Happy tasting, either way :)

Pretty much true, but when it comes to wine, if you want to purchase from a specific winery, and you live in a state that bans you having it mailed to you, you're out of luck. So things like wine clubs you can't join.

Can I ask, what are "bangers"? Where I come from that word is usually associated with our troubled youth. And while they may eat victims for lunch, it is not a food reference I know.

It's a type of sausage.

If you want some good wine, check out the V Sattui winery's website...They've got some fabulous stuff!
Ith: Art - Pink Poolithildyn on February 16th, 2007 12:40 am (UTC)
I think that was the winery you mentioned to me a few weeks back. It did look pretty awesome!
Ariestessariestess on February 16th, 2007 05:06 am (UTC)
It probably is. I'm on a serious V Sattui kick lately again...

Share and share alike, and all that [g] Here's the winery who's wine club I joined:

(I need a wine icon!)
Ariestessariestess on February 16th, 2007 05:00 pm (UTC)
Oooooers...I'll have to look into that.

And yeah, I should probably have some sort of wine icon myself...
Ith: Grey's - Kate Walshithildyn on February 16th, 2007 08:50 pm (UTC)
Maybe I'll make some tonight! I should be writing, but icon making is a good way to procrastinate :)
Ariestessariestess on February 18th, 2007 04:07 am (UTC)
*chuckles* Yeah, I know that feeling...

Okay, I'm sure this is a silly question. What's a banger?
