Ah, small victories.

At the end of each wine tasting class, we have an informal quiz on random wine related things (names of regions, varietals, fermenting proccesses, etc.). Since I skip lunch a lot (bad, I know) I'm usually at least tipsy at the end of class, so even if I know the answer, I never raise my hand fast enough.
Today he threw a curveball by following two rather hard questions (some things about anthocyans and wine regions of South Africa) with this one:

Name your favorite wine of the day, and tell us why.

Apparently people hate essay questions, because no one jumped on this one. So I rambled off some stuff and presto, I won a Riedel glass! I have no idea what line its from, and it might just be the everyday variety, but I don't care: it's purty and makes a nice sound when you tap it. So, yay. I own a piece of glassware I can justifiably refer to as a "stem."

Back to doing my presentation/slides for the lab meeting I'm giving tomorrow morning. Argh.
