Maybe I Need a Wine Accountant

You guys, my wine tasting journal, written in grape ink on the paper I made at that workshop in Vermont, may have been artisanal but it didn’t have a space for point values. Luckily, Lifehacker has this kickass wine tasting spread sheet! Now I can cross-reference by Appearance, Aroma, Body, Taste, and Finish! I’m going to get that kid next door to hack it for me to include my thoughts on the label artwork.

Things That Solve Problems You Never Knew You Had


“They are not only the hottest grilling accessory of the season, but with four fantastic collections to choose from Grill Charms™ make the perfect gift for any occasion!”

It is also super-awesome that they are listed under “Men’s Grilling Accessories.” But fear not, lady grillers. You won’t have to mark your steaks with lipstick because there is a special “Pink Collection” just for you. And it includes a breast cancer ribbon charm. What could be more appetizing? You can serve it to your friends right after you all get mammograms and pedicures.  Somehow I don’t think this is a subtle reference to the fact that barbecuing has been linked to cancer. Other designs in the pink collection include a shoe and a glass of champagne. Strangely, no tampons or pregnancy tests. Maybe for Mother’s Day.
