09/23/2002 Entry: "What Color Is It In Your World?"
This is not the redesign I threatened. It's just that the grey was starting to depress me. I wanted something with a little more sky in it and a little less Web.
Actually, it doesn't feel like I've done much Web-related stuff this weekend, for a change, even though I still managed to keep up with all my favorite weblogs. I've been busy enough in the Big Blue Room to keep everything balanced.
Saturday was the 28th Annual Jug Wine Festival. Friends of ours meet on the third Saturday of September and bring a bottle of cheap wine—preferably under five dollars and bonus points for bottles larger than 750ml. This year I brought a bottle of Dumisani, a blended white wine from South Africa ($3.99 at Trader Joe's) I won an award for "Best Wine Name!" It's actually a decent enough white, particularly for the price. The highly coveted prize for worst wine (harder to win than you think) went to Arbor Mist flavored wines. Only 6% alcohol, but over 50% artificial flavor; the most commonly used word in its description was "Kool-Aid." We had a lot of good wines, but more importantly, we had a lot of fun seeing a lot of nice folk out by the ocean.
Among other things I've done this weekend:
But it's Monday. I'd better get some sleep before I have to go stick my head back inside the box. Say hello to the sky for me.
