Rex & Goliath Pinot Grigio
This week has been rough because I’ve basically only been rehearsing, exercising, dieting & mostly not drinking. I know what you’re thinking, “Marissa! That’s stupid. You’re very fit.” This is fact. But what is also fact is that I am shooting all weekend* in a bikini & I can’t be bothered to think about how I look while I’m acting so fuck it, I will eat salad for a week. I love salad. Although, I do not love not drinking. But, like I said, I’m going to be in a bikini so I have been making an effort.
Today I went to work only to realize I forgot my wallet at home & had to drive all the way home then back to work stuff then worked then dealt with a bunch of my own shit then came home & scrubbed my bathroom for an hour & a half because we’re shooting in there in the morning. After all that shit, there was no way I was not going to chug something. So, I straight Ross Tested the last fourth of this bottle. No glass. At all. Straight Rossin’ ya’all.
I am very pleased because this bottle of Rex & Goliath Pinot Grigio is not only as it advertises— bright & crisp!— but it also has served as an excellent substitute for Xanax.
Not that I’m promoting self-medicating. I really am not. I’m just promoting that if you can’t have Xanax & maybe need to chill the fuck out for a second, you can have two glasses of this on a lettuce-filled stomach & feel a lot better about things.
And for those of you who will undoubtedly be dying to know what is going on with my amazing cleaning look— yes, that is a Yardbirds tanktop. Because even in my lowest moments, like when I’m scrubbing my tub, I like to look like I have excellent taste in music, which, in case you don’t know, I DO.
Tasting Notes: It was good. IDK, please see below.
Ross Test: A FUCKIN’ PASS WITH FLYING COLORS. JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR I’M TOO BROKE-ASS TO ACTUALLY GO SEE ORDERED. A little bitter on the finish if it gets warm but just keep it on maximum cool & you’ll be chillin’ to the max in nooooo time.
* If you’re interested, I’m starting production on the last four episodes of my webseries, Tangents & The Times, based on my blog of the same name. If you haven’t seen the first three episodes, you should watch them. I realize my opinion seems biased but actually people that are not me have enjoyed them a lot. Promise.
