sheesh. that's awfully swank sounding. i feel a little funny with my kitchen being so bare right now, knowing people out there are eating meals like this.

i understand that you are concerned with missing out on the social aspect of this, though. i don't know what to say. perhaps...just perhaps...you can convince your friends and husband to have an alternate wine-tasting event with vegetarian foods? everyone brings a specific bottle of wine and a specific dish to go with it? we always invite people over for a potluck before anyone can plan to invite us out to a steakhouse or whatever...

yeah, i know. i'm so not-posh.

i am sorry if i came across as disapproving. it shouldn't surprise me that so many people live in such extreme luxury, but for some reason, it still does, every time i read about it. of course with the way our society is set up, there are no apologies neccessary from the rich, to the poor. if i really wanted to, i could probably work my ass off and make a lot of money and frequent these places, and events, too.

i hope that you find a solution that works for both you, and your friends and loved ones, equipro. you should be proud of yourself for sticking to your guns in the face of social embarassement.

me too, tame. except we don't even have the money buy wine-in-a-box anymore. we have to make it ourselves. not counting the amount of time it takes to do the brewing, our wine works out to a cool $2 or $3 CDN, a bottle.

and it tastes like it, too.

well, not entirely. it's an issue for you when someone spends millions of dollars on an engagement ring. right?
