I Heart Ben Affleck (& Pinot Noir)

It's Make Me Laugh Monday!

But first I need to clear up some nasty rumors I've heard buzzing about, following my last post, I'm NOT Drinking Any F*cking Merlot! I like Pinot Noir & Merlot. They're just not what I would normally order above anything else. Most of the time I would go for a Syrah or a Cabernet Franc or a Sangiovese or a Cabernet Sauvignon first. Having said that, the Hitching Post's Highliner is de-lish. Having said that, and as my sister pointed out in her comment yesterday, my friends Ryan & Jessica (also known as Val (Kilmer - the good days) & Barbie) have a winery and produce their own awesome, fabulous, stupendous Pinot Noir. Now, having said THAT, I really thoroughly enjoy their Syrah and their Cabernet Franc. You can find them at Carr Winery. While you're there, check out their pictures because there really is a striking resemblance to the aforementioned celebrities. If you consider Barbie a celebrity.

Now, on to the Make Me Laugh Monday-ness of this post. As Jen from And Then Sum pointed out, Jimmy has come up with a rebuttal to the Sarah Silverman/Matt Damon video I featured a few weeks ago. Holey-cow, if only I had friends like these.

Go visit Absolutely Bananas for more of Make Me Laugh Monday!

And, just to prime you for what's to come here later in the week...a look into an email conversation with my newest stalking victim internet friend, The Bloggess.

I think I like the Ben Affleck/Jimmy Kimmel video better than the Matt Damon one, but I'm torn. They're both so freaking funny. Ben harnessed a lot of star power for his, which made me laugh.

I wish I had friends with a winery.

My daughter considers Barbie a celebrity.

And as for wine... if it's red and rhymes with beeno, I'm in!

I think I like the Matt Damon one more (because I think Sarah Silverman is so freaking cute), but anything with Huey Lewis is OK in my book. Is it sad that I was WAY more excited to see him than any of those other celebrities?

That Val Kilmer thing is almost spooky. Wow. The Bloggess...? I am afraid you will be too high and mighty for us before long...sigh.

Lulu said...

Wow...he does look like Val Kilmer!
Cute couple.

The Jimmy Kimmel/Matt Damon war is awesome!
