Not Good Enough, Unless We're Talking Sangria


















Another submission. I love submissions, thank you Dominici Real Simple Stewart!

This time, however, you were drinking some crap ass wine. Don't get me wrong, I've had plenty of this vino, but yea, not good. Next time you decide to try a red, first, lose the ice cubes. Second, stay away from anything that says "Vintner's Blend". If you find another bottle like this one in your wine storage shed (where is this storage unit, by the way?), I'd use it for making a nice red sauce or for braising some meats. Either that, or wait until you have already gone through three or four bottles of something much better (an Estancia Meritage, for instance), and then you should open one of these Ravenswood pups. Only then will this taste like anything resembling a good red wine.

UPDATE: THE REAL SIMPLE'S USED THE VINTNER'S FOR SANGRIA!! THUS THE ICE. AND THE FANCY PITCHER. THUS THE REASON THEY ARE THE REAL SIMPLE'S - SO PRACTICAL! GOOD GOD DID I GIVE THEM A LASHING FOR ALL THE WRONG REASONS. OK, BACK TO OUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED PROGRAM.


Want to see the infamous Mr. and Mrs. Real Simple Stewart? Here they are, those crazy sporting fanatics who take up new sports and excel at them on a whim. I can't wait for Marathon weekend, kids! (Just typing that makes me feel so slim and fit). I hope training is going well. I've been training too. And by training I mean simultaneous cheering and drinking. Call me ambitious, but I need to be ready for my return to Boston and
the celebration of Patriot's Day (AKA a reason to take off work and cheer on your comrades while sipping a nice afternoon vino). Anyway, nice swing, I guess.




















And finally, I found some
Hillary Haters (not difficult to find). They mostly hate her because she has no backbone regarding the war in Iraq. But there's also this:


Aside from her hawkish stances with regard to Iraq and Iran, Hillary isn’t so great on many domestic issues. She is against marriage equality for gay people. She is PRO AFTA, PRO death penalty, PRO Patriot Act. Does that make her PROgressive? We don’t think so.
So, what is so compelling about Hill except that she is female and pretty much a career politician? (Well, excluding the time she was on the Board of Directors at Wal-Mart, of course.) I'm not onboard with the Haters but I'm not onboard with Lady Hill either. I don't know if I can be. She rubs me the wrong way.

Forgot to mention that the wine was used to make Sangria...thus the shot fo the sangria pitcher in the picture! Oppsy! Regardless, it was a crappy ass bottle...only triple sec, fruit, and some white wine to mix so I could get it down my throat.
