New Job Celebration

With unemployment becoming a "national emergency," I am so grateful to have a job waiting for me out of college. Although I'll admit it's rather quick (I graduated two days ago and I start my new job on Monday) I have absolutely no room to complain.

Say hello to Norwegian Cruise Line's newest Personal Cruise Consultant!

Sadly, I gave my last bottle of Pinot Noir to a friend planning a romantic date (how Cupid-esque, I know) so for a celebration, I turned to a scrumptious alternative which I happened to have in my fridge - Amstel Light.

Now I know I promised this would not become a beer blog, but lately I've been leaning toward the bitter, bubbly stuff. I've seen a fair share of sour reviews of Amstel Light, but when I look at the calorie to taste ratio, I'll stand up for it:

Blue Moon 171 calories (sad times)
Heineken Light 99 calories
Amstel Light 93 calories
Becks Light 60 calories (still must try)

I'll keep exploring the world of beer, and maybe become knowledgeable enough in the hops culture that I can see why all these beer aficionados are turning up their noses on a beer that I can dig.

PS - Call me if you plan on cruising!

I could use a glass

There's no time for drinking wine when you're graduating college in a recession.

My to do list: Find a job.

I may have gotten a sales position with Norwegian Cruise Lines, which would be sweet. The amount of wine consumed on cruises is astronomical.

Speaking of cruises, wine vlogger Gary Vaynerchuck of Wine Library TV is setting sail this weekend on his annual Thunder Cruise.

I'm more than a little jealous of everyone going, even the crew.

But before I start booking any cruises, I'm going to have to sell some. Or find another way to satisfy the only objective on my to do list.

To everyone enjoying this weekend's Thunder Cruise - bon voyage.
