I realize that I am again straying from the medical topics.  Don't worry, I have an idea for a medical-related post for later in the day.  I was going to write that one now, but I happened to come across something that can't go without mentioning.

I was on Amazon this afternoon, because I earned myself a nice little $5 gift card on Swagbucks, and I signed up for a free Amazon Prime membership.  I've been looking for an interesting wine rack for quite some time, and thought maybe I could find something interesting on Amazon.  Boy, was I right.

In addition to finding a wine rack that I'm actually going to buy, I found THIS.  This is not what I was looking for.  Who knew such a thing existed?  I was going to put a picture up, but want this blog to remain family friendly, and not attract the wrong kind of audience, so you'll just have to follow the link to Amazon. 

When I come across things like this, I wonder what people are doing when they come up with this kind of invention.  Like, when I'm out running, or really doing any activity that involved a sports bra, I don't frequently think, "wow, I could really go for a swig of wine right now!".  I'm thinking it come in more frequently when some security dude makes someone throw away their half consumer beer when they're standing in line for a baseball game.  "Man, I really wish I had a hidden way to sneak this tasty beverage into the stadium!"  There are many more directions I could take conversation about this invention, but they would all be digressions far beyond where I am willing to go.  I just thought I should put it up here as my interesting find of the day.

FYI, this item did not make it into my shopping cart.  The real wine rack did, as did a copper french press and some lotion I'm too lazy to look in the store for (read: I can't go to the store to get myself...)

Enjoy the weekend!

Your gimpy friend who's spent too much time online today.

Nice, I might need to get the beer belly. But that reminds me of a story one of my ski buddies tells about a man he ran into skiing the Bikebeiner with a Camelback full of wine. He was offering swigs to everyone on the trail. Gotta love races where most people are just out there to have a good time.

The one thing I wonder is how long your drink would stay cold in the Wine Rack, pretty soon it would be body temperature which isn't very appealing.
