You’re wondering, “How much more random can she get?!” Trust me, I can do random. After all, one of my favorite books is James Joyce’s Portrait of the Artist… (If you don’t get that, click on the link, click on “first pages” and read just the first five sentences.)
It’s not quite as random as it might seem. I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned my sensitivity to tannins and the problem it causes with red wine consumption. However, we’re moving into new territory now. I learned two things at dinner Saturday night.
- Moscato can be red.
- I’ve kicked my “sensitivity” up a notch. I don’t care what some experts say; when a food/beverage causes a systemic reaction, it is an allergy, not a “sensitivity to…”
And thankfully, I have smart, foodie friends. I was sharing my less than optimal Saturday night experience with friends, and one immediately informed me that I should not eat grapes or raisins either. Hmmm… Oddly, I’ve ALWAYS preferred white grapes and golden raisins. Good thing, eh?
I’m still curious about those black grapes though. I like those more than reds, and according to Wiki’s article on tannins, red grapes are the “source”… I don’t think I’m curious enough to experiment though.
Here. Let me distract myself with this really cute outfit inspiration from those rockin’ BonBon Rose Girls. I think I might need it, almost as presented.
Shoes? Yes. (Old Navy… evidently, my fall flats wardrobe can be had from their stock.)
Pants? I didn’t think I needed colored denim, but then I saw these Hollister jeggings. Yes please? (I’m not familiar with Hollister. Anyone?)
I’ll skip the bag, even though I love me some cobalt blue, and since I have finally accepted that the boatneck isn’t my friend, I’ll look for a similar top with a scoop neck.
And once I find it, I’ll sip something cool and white while wearing it. White wine doesn’t stain. There’s a silver lining… Now… who wants my Horton Xoco (Rojo only… I can still drink the Blanco!)? And that was a joke, unless you’re local, because it’s illegal to ship wine.
