Look what I found at Total Wine! For all of you vampire or True Blood fans out there, your drink of choice has arrived. This is a 2005 Merlot “produce and bottled by Vampire Vineyards.” That’s what the label says, if you can believe it. I know I had to do a double take. And as you can see, I couldn’t resist. 😆
Now here’s the wacky part. I don’t drink, so I have no idea what the heck I’m gong to do with it. Can you cook with this stuff? If so, give me some ideas in the comments section. Giving it away isn’t an option because the name is the reason why I bought it. Okay, that and “produced and bottled by Vampire Vineyards” caught my eye, too. It’s a really dark, brooding bottle of Merlot that will probably live in the shadows of the pantry, overlooking a hapless victim from above, as they search for box of Rice Krispies or macaroni noodles. Hmmmmm. Maybe I’ll put a black cape around the neck to make it all official and stuff. 😉
Anyway, I’m chalking this up as one of my goofy gifts to myself. I always buy one around Christmas time, so I might as well add it to the Legos, The Secret of Nimh DVD, a remote control car, etc. And here I thought it was going to be the Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds” Barbie Doll. The jury is still out on that one. Maybe I’ll wait until after Christmas and see if the price goes down.
Where’s a vampire Ken doll to suck Barbie dry when you want one?
