I was thinking about wanting to do the blind date challenge next but alas everyone I talk to doesn't know anyone.So either I'm undateable, my friends know no one who's single, and/or there are just no available guys out there any more. 

Then today I was listening to the radio on my way to work and they were talking about the difference between dating then and now and how now it seems to be all about the online dating sites.  And they asked people who've tried to call in and give some feedback as to what works, what doesn't etc.  So e-harmony seemed to jump out at me as the one that was different, special, and seemed to have a good success rate.  So I figured what they hey...I set up a profile and got 7 least 3 sound interesting enough to want to go on a first date with but....i can't contact them or do onaything other than see the most basic info in their profiles unless i've got a spare $250 lying around which...SHOCK.... I don't.

So now I'm frustrated and irritated.  Want to do it, wish I could, but just can't afford it....oh well maybe in a few more years....

Challenge 1

SO this evening after work I went to my local liquor store for their weekly wine tasting.  It was interesting but since I was the only one there at the time it was also a bit of a let down.  I tried 4 wines the first was a white from Germany and was very good.  Had a nice smooth flavor dry but not arid and a really nice bouquet.  The next was a red from the moutains of France and was nice but it felt as if it coated my tongue somewhat.  The third was a horrendous red from Madrid.  It was heavy and heady and just NO! the fourth was from Italy and was ok not my favorite but not horrible either. 

I think that I should try another wine tasting but at a different location.  See how it compares.  One thing that I wish was that they'd had or I'd brought a small pad and pencil so I could take some notes.

When I mentioned this to a friend in Israel she suggested that I try something called a Lambourgesa (i think that's what it was) any way it's a bubbly red and I asked the guy at the liquor store about it he knew right away what i was talking about and low and behold they had it.  It's from Italy and he said it's from the Mario Battali reguion of Italy and it's great for pasta but also heavy, rich, fatty meals because it cuts right throught the fat and brings out the essence of the wine. 

So as soon as I've got a little spending $ I'm gonna go ahead and splurge on a bottle of the nice white German wine and a bottle of the bubbly red....

Fun and interesting and gonna have to try this again one day soon!
