Nothing bums us out like vacuuming. Maybe it reminds us that we can
never really win the battle against the crud and filth besieging our
lives. Or maybe it forces us to face the dismal fact that our remaining
decades on this planet will be more and more filled with the tedium of
daily maintenance, just to keep our homes (and bodies) from falling
into decrepitude. Perhaps it's because our parents choked to death on a
vacuum cleaner they were eating to amuse the guests at our fifth
birthday party. And handheld vacs are even worse - they don't even
provide the macho thrill of pushing a big, heavy, snarling piece of
hardware around the room.
But the Dyson DC16 Root
6 Handheld Vacuum banishes our gloom the same way it banishes our Frito
leavings: with extreme prejudice and a minimum of hassle. See, it uses
the same root cyclone technology as in Dyson's upright vacs. So when we
unholster this cordless assassin - yes, we built a holster for ours -
we're not just holding a mini-vacuum in our hands. We're holding a
cyclone! Like mighty Zeus, we dispatch the very power of nature itself
to scourge our heathen enemy! "Tremble before us, crumbs and dust and
little bits of fuzz!" we bellow, sweat glistening angrily on our chest
hair. "Behold your unmaker! You cannot but yield to our power! And we
shall delight in your destruction, and a thousand plagues shall rain
upon thee -"
Of course, this is always right when our wife
gets home. But we're not embarrassed. She knew what she was getting
into when she married us. And at least we're getting the vacuuming done.

I know what the government says, Wayne. And I know what I saw. And
I'm telling you, thing was as real as a chupalope and a dragonsquatch
put together. I'se just fishing in the old quarry when I seen it
digging in the trashcan by the parking lot. Blue fur, little white
eyes, one big pointy horn like a, I dunno, like half a Viking hat. You
never smelled anything like that smell, like a gorilla and a horse and
something else, rotted fruit or something. And that smile, those fangs
- I about crapped. Ain't no way was that a guy in a gorilla suit. You
keep laughing, Wayne. You wudn't out there. You don't even know.

Are you the kind of wine drinker who comes to Wine.Woot to find the
same stuff you see at the supermarket? Do you prefer to stick to a
handful of standard varietals rather than try anything unusual? Do you
only patronize wineries named after animals? Can you only really enjoy
a wine if you feel like you've overpaid for it?
answered yes to any of those questions, this offering isn't for you.
See you on Thursday. Maybe we'll have some Chardonnay or Merlot from a
winery with a name like Whimsical Purple Rhino for, like, forty bucks a
On the other hand, maybe you seek a fresh, flavorful
experience at a reasonable price, and you come here for wines that you
can't find anywhere else, and you appreciate the craft and tradition of
a family-owned winery that's been doing this since the 19th century. If
so, you're in luck. Because these two types of V. Sattui Riesling are
rare pleasures. And you can only get them in two places: at the V.
Sattui winery in Napa, or right here, today. Guess where you'll pay
less for it. Like, way, way less.
The shape, label design,
and color of those four bottles may put you in mind of beer bottles.
But rest assured: they're full of nothing but 750mL each of the best
Riesling in California. Says who? Says the California State Fair
people, that's who. They bestowed that honor upon the V. Sattui 2007
Riesling Dry. Now you, too, can indulge in the same full-bodied, supple
aromas of peach and tangerine that sent the State Fair judges into such
raptures, even if you've never been anywhere near California. The more
delicate, sweeter V. Sattui 2007 Riesling Off-Dry may not have as
impressive a CV. Not many wines do. But it's just as stunning in
combination with any spicy cuisine, from Beijing to Bangkok, from Delhi
Truth be told, serious wine insiders need no
reminding of V. Sattui's reputation for fine Rieslings. They've been
known as one of Cali's best for, oh, a few decades now. The Brotherhood
of Wine Snobs may revoke our membership for revealing the secret, but
we wouldn't feel right if we didn't let you know. If you're adventurous
enough to give 'em a try, you know where the button is. If not, well,
you probably couldn't have handled it anyway.
