I was talking with the amazing and awesome Marilyn Wann the other night and we got to talking about some major box sorting she had coming up. I said, well you need a nice full bodied cabernet and some jazz to go with that. She agreed and said, “That sounds like a blog post!” “Yay,” I said. So here are some of my special recommendations:
Pre-mother-in-law’s visit: wild house cleaning spree: Merlot and Zydeco music
During mother-in-law’s visit: White Cotes du Rhone and anything by Edith Piaf
Post mother-in-law’s visit: Champagne and French Pop music
Going over the first red lined version of your book manuscript: Zinfandel and Tanya Tucker
Preparing your taxes: Pinot Grigio and Billy Ray Cyrus
After finishing your taxes: MD 20/20 and any Grand Opera Tragedy by Richard Wagner
Mammogram: White Zinfandel and Brittany Spears
Your “artistic” friends come over to redecorate: Mimosas and anything by Cher
Preparing for your first-ever yard sale: Red zinfandel and Dropkick Murphys
During your first-ever yard sale: Pinot Grigio and Eminem
Celebrating the end of your only (and last) yard sale: Fume blanc and Bollywood music
So my little chicklettes, what are YOUR favorite wine and music pairings for life’s little dramas? Write me a little note in the comments and pass the corkscrew, willya?
The Fat Chick
Love it, Jeanette!
– Finally dumping the person you should never have dated in the first place: Two-buck Chuck from Trader Joe’s (any flavor that’s already in the house) and Candye Kane. (Cheese puffs optional.)
– Getting through a media interview about fat politics where the interviewer just can’t believe fat people could be healthy, no matter how much data you cite: a big glass of water and a dram of Laphroaig back, with Nomy Lamm or Jill Scott played loud.
I admit, I haven’t thought of pairing wine with my whine, but what a fun thing!
Ahhh these are excellent suggestions! You are a whine pairing master!
