Rotten Fish

I hate marketing and packaging. There are so many wines these days with trendy labelling ("fat bastard", "red truck", as well as loads of frog analogies...). This is a good example of why I hate it... Koko admitted she was struck by the cute label, so picked up the Fish Eye, California Shiraz, 2004 while looking for a cheapie tuesday night wine. Well, when she pours the first glass down the toilet, I know I'm in for a real treat (ha ha). This stuff is so bad, I wouldn't even cook with it. It is perhaps the worst wine that has ever passed my lips, and that includes corked versions. I can't even describe to you how bad it tastes. Why anyone would drink this, I don't know. How can they sell this shit?
The verdict: below "crap". Value: if you think a good toilet cleaner should cost $9, then this is good value.
The good news: Our provincial wine store monopoly has an iron clad return policy - just tell them it is "bad" and they refund your money even without a bill. So the joke is on them for once....
Cheers!!

I agree 100%. I had a split of this on an airplane once, and thought maybe it was me- this seemed like the worst wine in the universe. I looked over at my girlfriend and she was wincing at her glass as well, which made me feel better. It made the airplane food taste SO good by comparison. This wine is for hobos and convicts.

First off I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
I've had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Cheers!

Hi! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I'm
trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to
fix this issue. If you have any recommendations, please
share. Thank you!

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It's
simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between usability and appearance. I must say you have done a fantastic job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super fast for me on Internet explorer. Outstanding Blog!

When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment.

Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
Bless you!

I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your website?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
Maybe you could space it out better?

Hiya! My name is Luisa and When I just wanted to say your weblog is
great! It's amusing simply because I use to have a weblog that nearly had an identical web address: http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=24374263&postID=1283834287898411046 mine was only a few letters different. Nonetheless, I'm a
big fan of your blogging site and if you at any time would like a guest write-up make
sure you email me at: luisabeaulieu@yahoo.com. I absolutely love
writing!
