Wine of the day:
Little Boomey Shiraz, 2006
Episode #762 - What wine pairs with Chicken nuggets
COLOR-dark; NOSE-a little nice blackberry; tight; some black cherry as well; PALATE-good intense fruit on the attack; a little pepper on the back-end; some graininess; meaty as well; not as thin and fake as I would have expected for a mass produced shiraz; not bad at all; nice strawberry flavor; very bright and a good value; GV-87.
While not the most productive day I did have a ‘....nice,....good value’ kind a day.
Totally broke till Friday. But upon rummaging the freezer this afternoon I found a Amy’s Cheese Pizza....my favorite! And for dinner, way in the back was a package of steaks that I bought sometime ago when they were on crazy sale. Awesome! So I didn’t have to spend a dime and had a good delicious tasting day.
The day had it’s dark moments too. I have been working in total isolation and am at a point where I really need someone to read my paper. So far I’ve not had one person read it. Same thing happened when I was writing my proposal for the NIH. I ended up submitting without one bit of feedback from anyone in my lab/department. Without my husband, I’m not sure how I’d do it, or continue to do it! Thankfully my husband is completely gifted when it comes to sexing up a story. He’s brilliant!
So, here I am again. I really NEED (want?) someone to read it from my field! I crave engagement!!!!
A recent post from Professor in Training (The importance of peers in grad school) is yet another example from which I can model, but what I wouldn’t do to experience it for myself. Just a reminder of the spiciness of my situation.
Desperate, I broke down and asked Wonderboy to read my draft yesterday. While his response contained ‘some graininess....and was a bit meaty...’ it wasn’t ‘thin and fake as I...expected...’.
As a finish, I had a GOOD friend day! Thank you for making me giggle!
Not bad at all....
