I Guess I'm Not A College Student Anymore...  
...Because I can't imagine that I would ever have spent over $30 on a bottle of wine when I was in college.

Well, maybe I would have. $30 isn't a huge amount of money; it's certainly possible to spend a lot more than that. What is more certain is that I wouldn't have gotten two such bottles (both bottles of pinot noir, for the record. From different vineyards).

I suppose those bottles are going to get saved for a special occasion; I'm thinking I might open one this weekend for my birthday, but only if there's someone around to share it with who might appreciate it. I'm not going to drink a $30+ bottle of wine alone -- I can drink one of the cheaper wines if all I wanted to do was kill a bottle. I suppose I'd think about throwing a very small party or something if my apartment didn't suck; having no furniture (and, well, a huge pile of crap I need to EBay or something taking up half of the "public" space) isn't conducive to hosting much of anything.

Hrm. Have to think on that.

Mmmm. Spendy wine! I wish I could help you with this problem. :)

One year my father-in-law bought a bottle of Dom Perignon for New Years... because he has these odd ideas about doing traditional things for holidays, and he's very bad with money. Lucky for me, there wasn't anyone else around who liked champagne. Woo.

I'm not much for holidays, but that one was fun.
