I am sober. I swear I am sober. However, it is 12:18am and I am still at work having arrived at 7:45am. I am in the midst of what we in my industry affectionately call a "brand plan." Actually, we have a lot of other, more colorful names for it, but I won't go into that here.....
That said, it's pretty incredible how lack of sleep and intense focus on data and power point charts can put one in such a slap happy, giggly mood. I wish my attitude would have involved a nice California Meritage or Oregon Pinot Noir or aged Cote du Rhone, but sometimes you just have to go with a fun pack of grape Nerds, a handful of Goldfish crackers (tossed over your cubicle by a friendly co-worker), some "aged" pretzels and a vintage Kashi frozen dinner (Kashi is a lot better when not caked in freezer burn).
However, if I were in the comfort of my own home and not sleeping, I'd definitely be drinking one an Oregon Pinot Noir or a California Meritage to take the edge off of this crazy work week. What pairs better with absolute frustration, annoyance, exhaustion and general pissiness than a good, complex red? I really can't think of anything (o.k., maybe tequila).
I hope you enjoyed my w(h)ine tip of the evening.
Take it easy and have a great weekend.
