Twittered Out

Russ the Winehiker sent me a nice direct message from Twitter yesterday:

Hey Rickie, we haven't seen you for such a long time, and we miss you here on Twitter, man! C'mon back and let's have some fun!!

Thanks, Russ! I guess it has been quite a while since I've Twittered with the other Twitwits. I still get notices from Twitter telling me that so-and-so is now following me; most of the time I will check out their Twitter page and web page and see that some of them blog and Twitter in a foreign language and I have no idea what they are writing about.

Anyway, the reason I don't Twit anymore is mainly from not having time. Also, I wound up following too many people and found that there were too many comments being made to keep up with. I'm not really an IM or Twitter or social networking kind of person anyway so I find myself forgetting to even log in to catch up with stuff.

Well, that was very nice of Russ to think of me. Let me just say that I am still very much enjoying my wine and look forward to many more glasses in the future. Also, in response to my own feeling that I am oversubscribed, this week I canceled all of my wine club memberships, subscriptions, etc., because it was heading towards the problem of having too many wines for practical consumption, i.e., no place to put everything. I only have a fairly small temperature-controlled area to keep the wines. I wish I had a cellar in the house or could afford larger wine storage alternatives but that isn't the case so I unfortunately and with much regret canceled everything. It was also done from a financial standpoint as well, as I began to get carried away by spending too much money.

Now, after having Twisted Oak's Twisted Few among the memberships I canceled, last night I twisted off the cork on a bottle of their 2005 *%#&@! (the red one) and thought, should I have canceled all these? This was one awfully good bottle of wine! It will be the next one for review in a couple of days. Sigh.. I only drank 1/4 of the bottle so there's three more evenings left of it (mmm, good) but just the thought of canceling all of these fine wineries and the wines they produce.. oh, well. One day I shall return!

And with that, have a very fine weekend, y'all!
