Well, not wine, but scotch. A friend had to put down his cat so he threw a wake. We wound up splitting bottles of Ardbeg and Talisker. Fortunately, he's a scotch connoisseur so I didn't have to pretend to enjoy that Johnny Walker or Dewers crap.
My blind date had been tanning so often that I was afraid hunters would try and kill her and use her skin for a handbag. Nice person, but we had nothing in common.
So why don't I date women that I know? I will confess that I am tempted, but I've dated enough women that are friends of friends that I am feel a bit self-conscious. It's sometimes awkward going to a party and counting the women that I've dated. I'm friends with all of them and they know one another, but it still gets weird (but a couple are are sooooo damned cute -- maybe I should break down).
Bought the new Pigface CD "Easy Listening". It's certainly not what most would listen to, but I'm enjoying it tremendously.
