"Make herbal tea, but use wine instead of water".

There, that was easy.

Look, it doesn't matter if they make me look cool, mysterious, or creepy. As long as little old ladies, cashiers, waitstaff, etc refrain from engaging me in inane conversations, I consider the hats an essential part of my wardrobe.

I wouldn't say it's a "large" collection of wide brimmed hats.

Well, who doesn't want to look jaunty.

Mr. Fuzzypaws: Just missing the beard.


I'm confused. How do you mull wine without a beard?

Use pubic hair instead of beard hair to steep the mulled wine.

I read that as mullet wine.

There are plenty of ways to avoid conversation without dressing silly.

I used to have a wide-brimmed hat, but then it was taken to one of the kids' schools and confiscated. So, I shall sit here, hatless, wishing I could mull wine. Instead, I shall mull buying a new hat.

A silly hat is a passive conversation avoidance system. It is very efficient. All other methods require some sort of active response like politely demurring, or by demonstrating some sort of behavior designed to alarm potential conversationalists. How tiresome!

Are we talking orthodox Jews, or fedora clad neck-beards?

Is there some overlap there?

Mulled wine is evil.  I swear to god.  You go from sober to passed out with one glass.

I take my mulled wine heavy on the cinnimon and light on the cloves.

I'm still holding out for mulled ice wine.

Hector Remarkable: Well, who doesn't want to look jaunty.


Am I wrong to say that no women are ever described as "jaunty"? And, of course, no young person. It's just a condescending description of people like me. Old men.

You're never wrong. You're nonpareil. Get yourself a scotch, you jaunty old man.

Isn't a week before the first day of spring a little late to be talking about winter wine?

Not as bad as the email and flyers about January being "Healthy Meal Planning Month" that the HR department distributed at our office...

in February.

Could have been useful knowledge 4 5 months ago.

How I get mulled wine: I go to the winery webpage and order a case labeled: "Mulled wine"

/Room temp, I'm lazy and it's warming on the freezing cold nights.
