So sorry I’ve missed about a month of wine posts. I’ve been mismanaging my time lately. Time management is something I know so well I could write a book on it, but you gotta actually follow the practice. So I can’t even come up with a good excuse.
Anyways, if you’re on Twitter, you know that every day seems to have a theme or two or three. Being a writer, we try to support each other with #WriterWednesday promotions, although most just spam the twitter world with their own stuff. Don’t get me started.
There’s also #WineWednesday, obviously one of my favorite hashtags to search for on Wednesdays. Brings up some really cool blogs about wine I’ll save for another week’s post.
And . . . there’s #WerewolfWednesday. So I had to ask, what do you get when you combine wine with werewolves. First thing I found was the cute pin to the left. I thought about ordering one until I saw the $95 price tag. Seriously, these should be mass produced for $10. She’d be a millionaire. Well, maybe.
The next thing to catch my eye was a wine label. YAY! I love that wine makers have gone wild with labels, so why not name a wine ‘Werewolf.’ Heck, there’s a Vampire label. Comes in the usual Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio varietals. Perfect choices for any Halloween party is my thought.
The bad news is I found this post on Werewolves.com about the damage to the liver from excessive drinking of alcohol. Man Turned Into Werewolf From Drinking Too Much Wine.
“He developed one of many different varieties of porphyria after being exposed to sunlight for a long period of time on vacation with his wife. At first, he thought it was just tan. Then his fingernails, and the skin on his hands started er.. coming off. Not to mention the excessive hair growth.”
Turns out there are other beverages dedicated to werewolves. Blaze will be happy to hear about Newcastle Werewolf, although it was only available in 2011. Maybe they’ll bring it back.
“Legend has it that a beast roams the moors and plains of Newcastle Upon Tyne. It’s part man, part wolf, and more than a little wild— the perfect inspiration for a Limited Edition ale. Newcastle Werewolf comes at you with a dark, startling aroma, a roasty flavor, and a final taste of hops that leaves you howling for more.”
And another one of my favorite hot beverages, that I can’t do without every morning, has a Wicked Wolf label by Reven’s Brew Gourmet. It’s more fairy tale but I’m counting it here as one I’ve gotta try.
“Got big eyes, big ears, big teeth? Are you cross-dressing? No one will notice when you serve this blend of highly select and exotic origins.
Intense, vibrant flavor in a balanced cup with a superb finish. Superlative after-meal coffee with awesome applications as accompaniment to chocolate desserts! Also available in Certified Organic form. Dark Roast.”
And speaking of coffee, it’s only 8:00 A.M., so I think I’ll go get me another cup.
