New World Alsatian

While perusing the local enabler, Hipster Shaun came across this Gewürztraminer from Washington State! Who knew? Hesitatant but curious, Hipster Shaun procured a bottle for the princely sum of $16 or thereabouts.

It's very very sweet compared to the Alsatians and the Sud Tirolese. Wethinks this sweetness is an Americain preference. We will prolly use it for dessert drinking instead of with meals.

We had grocery duck and made fried rice.

Philippine Stock Exchange rises by 3000000 points after beautiful lass in Blue Spiderman Costume wins Anachronistic Contest.

I didn't even know it was on. My social media feed just ran riot with Steve Harvey memes. Good on the Stuttgart-CDO lass though. She's very pretty.

Loo Reads

I need to go out and get magazines. I've finished Yes! and Grid cover to cover. The Manila Review is taking a loooooooooooooooooooooooooong time to digest though. It's so hard ha unlike my poopies of recent days.

Glühwein 2015

Snooty dandy Hipster Shaun is selecting this year's bottom bin wine for mulling. Is it the wine or the quality of fruits?
