This Post Was Not Worth The Wait

So it's been a little while since I did a blog post, and I'm here immersed in the dark hour (MST) so I figured, why not bring back this little pet project of mine I started back in March 2013.  Since we last spoke I went to Chile.  That was tops.  I also went to Palisade.  That was interesting.  Palisade is Colorado's wine region.  It differs from Chile in that way that black differs from white.  So...substantially.  Still for a young, budding peach farm turned wine country, I have to say I was impressed by the 30 some odd wineries in the region.  There were even a few really decent red wine places.  I like that it's still relatively unknown too.  When I asked somebody for winery recommendations in Palisade before I left, the response I got was, "yeah...California."  Ass.

Finally, where else but in CO can you get this kind of view while sipping on your bottle of petit verdot? 


What else?  I went to see the Chihuly exhibit at the Botanical Gardens recently.  The history behind Chihuly is interesting, I bet.  I don't plan on ever learning who that person is, or if it's even a person.  Maybe it's a city in Mexico where colored glass was invented.  Whatever it is will remain a mystery until the end of time most likely.  But please enjoy anyways:

Something

Something Else

Something Eastery?

Something Cosmic

Something Viking-ish

CULT
That is the sum total of what I've done recently.  I don't know what else to tell you.  Work's been busy, so that's good.  Oh I know!  I recently joined Hinge.  Hinge is the same as Tinder, except slightly less sketchy since it connects you to people your friends know through Facebook.  What it has taught me as that I have a bunch of jerk friends who in two effing years didn't introduce me to their cute single friends in Denver.  Thanks for nothing, a-holes!
