Must be friday [Aug. 24th, 2007|01:17 pm]

I read an article that said — Wine, 16 ounces = 330 calories

Instead of thinking, "wow, that's alot of calories" I start thinking, I wonder where I can find a bar that serves wine in 16 oz glasses! Now that's what I'm talking about!

Just kidding about drinking wine out of large mugs, but the portion on that one cracked me up. Isn't 16oz like as big as a tall latte worth of wine? Now that's quite a generous glass I'd say.

have you seen those glasses that hold an entire bottle [!] of wine? crazy (a couple of restaurants serve wine in them as a schtick).

I'd be in trouble in one of those places. I love red wine, but I've learned my lesson about too much of it. I learned the hard way that my smaller body size means slower, less wine, and more than 2 glasses (and not even 16oz glasses) means a faceplant and a regrettable feeling.

yea, if I have more than two glasses I'm doing a faceplant, too. And wine hangovers are the worst!

When I was first adjusting to my new body size I had a few regrettable parties that I tipped over at about 10pm that I was hosting.

I also have moments I don't quite remember, such as passing my panties around a room based on a board game. I wouldn't have believed it if it weren't for cell phone photos. Needless to say, I've revised my consumption rules for good reasons. :)

That's like... bored housewife portion of wine. The kids are climbing the walls, everyone is edgy, Daddy isn't home yet and by God Mummy needs wine so she doesn't run away.

I wonder if the author was having one of those days. This is one of those "now liquid calories add up" articles. I suppose if you are downing wine by the gallon it does!

Biggest reason I started drinking more wine, less calories than most! Whole bottle depending on kind, red usually, barely hits 600 calories!

yay wine!

Wine is a healthy alcohol in a correct portion too. Can't argue with that. :)
