Pairing Wine With My Life's Adventure

REINVENTION: Quit my job in IT, sold my house and moved from Cal to NYC for sommelier classes. GETTING MY HANDS DIRTY: Moved to Napa and worked in a vineyard making wine. TRAVEL: Through France and Italy on a wine scavenger hunt. Sto cambiando la mia vita e desidero imparare circa vino. Je change ma vie et je veux me renseigner sur le vin. TRY TO GET SERIOUS: Living in New York for 4 years and working as a Sommelier. NEW GOALS: Do my own thing, find love, speak Spanish, live wine.

Napping in Napa

well this move is going to take some getting used to... feels really small in wine country versus NY. my meeting for my new job at the winery, was awesome. these guys are going to help me so much. they were nice, we drank wine from barrels, picked and tasted some grapes in the field... laughed and danced. i drove like 400 miles in circles, my phone fell in the pool. so today i spent most of my time getting a new phone (those phone people are worse than car salesmen and cingular stores ARE the gateway to hell), trying to rent a place and finally finding an internet connection. allegedly the motel was going to give it to me, but i'm now sitting in a cafe. ny people should not go on vacation b/c if they are like me right now, they would kill the rest of the world. from this i know i'm not patient (or know how to spell it) and i need a phone and FAST internet. still looking for a place to live. maybe a trailer in a field, or a one-bedroom house in napa. complaining about a possible 10-mile commute b/c i'm afraid of a dui... (joke) lady with the italian villa could be an option, but that would be like my south street place in steroids in an open field. generally looking at $900 a month and an 8 month lease. i'm finding it hard to commit... to anything.

    Hi Mag,

    Saw someone today with a "C" permit, which made me think, did I used to know what part of the city you could park on the curb with a "C" permit? Then it made me remember, hey, I've been meaning to say hi to mag since she went to new york to learn how to be a sommallier--isn't that where brangelina help them starving kids? Sorry that I am like the worst frigging penpal ever and glad to see that you are doing well.
