I bought a bottle of boxed white wine from Rite Aid last night.  Even researched Best Boxed White Wines.  Enjoyed two glasses of Bandit's finest Pino Grigio.  Thought of you every sip of the way.

Was this a study that was funded by a grant from Franzia?

I'll bet you put ice cubes in it too, didn't you? DIDN'T YOU?!

During the summer I usually put a few of the single-serving boxed wines in the cooler when I go out on the boat.  The wimmens put a straw in them and call them adult juice boxes.

Bandit is a fine wine for women with low standards and loose morals.

Also quite good for middle aged white men who are losing their self-esteem.

Stay out of the left lane on your way there, slowpoke.

:lmao: Some dude named Jeremy Sprinkle was banned from playing in the Belk Bowl because he shoplifted a bunch of stuff from Belk despite every player in the game being given $450 gift cards.

Enjoying a tall cool Solo cup of bota box pinot grigio as we speak. Crisp and refreshing.

roverkid got me an amazon echo dot for christmas.   other than getting the weather and controlling my music by voice commands, I still haven't really figured out how to make it useful, but I may end up hooking it up to my lights.   anyway, it makes it easy to just play whatever music pops into your head.  I've been listening to the Smiths for the last hour. what a great band.  earlier I was listening to the Damned.   worse than I remember.

Gift-giving question:  I agreed to sell someone a used item for $100.  That person has a birthday coming up and I would probably spend $50 on a gift.  Would it be gauche to just outright give them the item they were going to buy from me?  (Important fact: recipient is a woman.)

Give them a $50 Igno Gift Card and let them use it on their purchase

It's pretty stupid really, but I do love controlling my lights through Alexa. Hop into bed, do some reading or whatever and then when I'm ready to go to sleep: "Alexa, turn off the bedroom lights."

I use the timer and alarm functions a lot as well.

My mom has one of those things. I hate it. Only way it knows how to respond to 'Alexa' is by listening to everything that's said.
