As the sub-freezing temperatures (Its 16 degrees outside as I compose this post) begin to solidify the landscape of Lincoln, NE, its time to hole-up in the bunker for another 2 1/2 months. While I do complete a lot of work during this period, there is very little else positive to mention. Of course, the weather conditions do result in my consumption of a great deal of red wine. My personal favorite is Pinot Evil, a French pinot noir; not only is it inexpensive ($7.00 per bottle), but it tastes yummy as well. To top it off, the local "Intoxicants" store is located directly across the street from my apartment. I can get from my front door and back, all the while purchasing a bottle, in about 2 1/2 minutes. My liver hate me, but my psyche hearts me big.
