Wine-o Monday

I have wine in my blood, literally my mom drank red wine when I was still in da womb and I continued to sip it until I started to guzzle it from stolen bottles at age 15.  Then I went to Tuscany (sighhhh*), where wine is cheaper than water = the birth of true wino-dum.  Now, I don't discrimination against any kind of liquor and that includes wine, I love it all, most of the time.  As of late, I have been obsessed with Sauvignon Blonc, it's very light and crisp and after about 1.5 glasses your about to sing to your cat, while watching re-runs of glee.  sweet life.   Any who, I have found that Sauv Blonc's from Marlborough, New Zealand are especially tantalizing and here are two that are under $15.00, unless you have problems and buy a case (guilty).  Add wine and cheese for extra special results.

Here's my lil wine store, isn't he cute?

No Shave November

No shave November, invented by the french.  No really, no shave November, if you don't know, is a nasty fundraiser for prostate cancer awareness.  Great cause, sort of gross outcome.  Now this month, November, is the month that men find it absolutely necessary and cool to growth out patchy, scratchy, and down right unattractive pub beards.  Now, I should explain that I enjoy a good rugged mountain man; however, most men cannot achieve that kind of epic beard, hence my use of the adjective patchy.  My other problem with men and facial hair is their choices on grooming....NEVER GROOM A BEARD, (one can trim the whole face, but one must never, ever, ever cut designs into ones face).

Now, men should also keep in mind that women love to get involved with any sort of fundraiser, especially when it has to do with men and their prostates.  Therefore, women are also not shaving...pause for reaction (TAKE THAT!! Hunny, don't you love the braid I just weaved out of my armpit? Chic ay?)  Anywayyyy, mustaches have been hip since monkeys and hit a peak when Sherlock Holmes sported his hella fab stache a couple decades ago.  So it's no surprise that mustaches have joined the rank and file must have absurdities of the fashion world.

Because let's be real, who doesn't absolutely need another sweater, especially with a mustache on it.
