It's warm out. The sun is shining. People are playing sports and
laughing. Which means no one is using that wifi at the coffee shop.
You've got all the bandwidth to yourself. Jackpot, baby.
The HP Pavilion
17" 2GHz Core 2 Duo Notebook means you don't have to sit at home with a
familiar IP that can be traced right to you. Instead, you can curl up
in your favorite dark corner and enjoy filling that 500GB hard drive
with movies, music, fan fiction, whatever your heart desires! The Intel
Core 2 Duo processor and 4 gigs of RAM will make it all seem fast as a desktop, and that's good. But know what's even better? When you see that unmarked RIAA van pull up outside, you'll be able to shut your HP Pavilion
17" 2GHz Core 2 Duo Notebook and hit the road. They'll never even know!
Just be sure to tip the barista, he's goona have some serious legal
Owning a HP Pavilion 17"
2GHz Core 2 Duo Notebook can also let you enjoy watching movies while
you're eating out. Who uses an iPod? Probably the same people defending
the new Dawson's Trek movie. That sort of thing might be okay in a
smaller size. But it takes a WXGA+ HD
BrightView with 1440×900 resolution to really appreciate your classic
Mystery Science Theater episodes. And surely the other people around
you will want to discuss them with you. Hey, did you know Mike tried to
survive for a month on nothing but bacon? What a guy!
Getting an HP Pavilion
17" 2GHz Core 2 Duo Notebook isn't just an attempt to keep yourself
from talking when you could be typing. It's also a way to get a laptop
with a full sized number keypad. Never again risk being last in an
addition contest just because of your keyboard. Once it's happened to
you, you'll understand.
Listen, summer's just a fact of
life. But there's no need to step out of your Singularity just because
you want to have a cookout. When the chef needs a recipe for a <a href="http://www.supersizedmeals.com/food/article.php/20080212-The_Meat_Ship">Meat Ship</a>, you'll have it bookmarked and ready, thanks to the HP Pavilion 17" 2GHz Core 2 Duo Notebook. And who wants to order online pizza for desert?
I mean, there are, like, what, six billion of us now? Standing out
in that crowd takes some doing. That's why I like to wear enigmatic
shirts that almost demand that passersby break the ice with pointed
"Excuse me, but what the hell is supposed to be
going on with that shirt? Is it a bird with worms on the brain? Because
he's, what, hungry or something? Or is his brain turning into a worm?
But then why would it be protruding from his skull? And the glasses,
what's that about? Are hipster/nerd birds more hungry for worms than
regular birds? Is that the idea? Why?"
questions, friendships blossom. Or they would, if anybody ever actually
asked them. So far, nobody has. But as soon as someone does, I'll know
I have a friend for life. That's why I also wear this ASK ME ABOUT MY T-SHIRT button (sold separately).
Wear this shirt: in solidarity with nearsighted, crazed-with-hunger birds everywhere.
Don't wear this shirt: if you're the kind of provincial philistine who can't accept ambiguity in art. Or eating worms.
This shirt tells the world: "A mind is a delicious thing to slurp out of the soil."
We call this color: Royal Worm Blue.

OK, maybe it wasn't that clever. Point is, in the first half of the week, Wellington Vineyards took you on <a href="http://wine.woot.com/Blog/ViewEntry.aspx?Id=8297">a journey through the recent past</a>
aboard a time machine powered by Zinfandel. Now it's time for a trip
through space. And this voyage will take us to three distinct corners
of the Wellington empire, in the form of three vineyard-designated
We hope you're hungry, because all
three of these Wellington Cabs are best enjoyed with food. And we hope
you brought something to eat, because the dining car's closed. Those
travel industry cutbacks, you know. And the Cheez-Its in our backpack
are for us. Sorry.
Wellington's been making wines from
Mohrhardt Ridge grapes for twenty years, Handal-Denier for ten, and
Karren for about eight. Despite the differences in terroir, all three
wines bear the stamp of the Wellington Vineyards "house style". They're
all unfined, clarified only by gentle racking and light filtration. All
three have formed, or will form, some sediment in the bottle as they
age. All three are age-worthy, with the Mohrhardt Ridge and
Handal-Denier Cabs typically peaking after 8-12 years, while the Karren
could probably stand 10-20. And all three taste better decanted: one to
three hours in the case of the Handal-Denier and Mohrhardt, three to
six hours for the Karren.
Sure, it'd be a lot more fun to
actually tour the Wellington grapeshed in person, stopping off at each
vineyard to see what sets it apart from every other patch of soil on
the planet. But that involves paying for gas, or plane tickets, or
teleportation fees, not to mention inventing a teleporter. With these
three wines, you can get there riding on nothing but your tongue. Not
literally, of course. That'd be disgusting and painful - in other
words, the exact opposite of experiencing the Wellington
Vineyard-Designate Cabernet Trio.
