Christmas Comes Early

Christmas for G and I came early. Last night in fact since G heads to China first thing Tuesday morning. It was good fun with a brilliant champagne and gobs of fun prezzies!

1) the vintage Veuve courtesy of G; 2) Veuve on ice … mmmmmm

3) mine!; 4) G’s gift stache … including some LV hehe

Out of utter curiosity, I decided to layout the corks I’ve been saving since January (fyi: cork is quite endangered and the LCBO does have a programme in place where you can take them back in to be recycled). I save up little ziplock bagfulls of corks and deposit them once/year.
To save your brain some math … that’s 22 champagne corks (23 including last night Veuve) and 54 wine corks (56 including the two bottles sitting out on the counter opened). That means a total of 79 bottles so far this year (and that’s not counting the dozen or so corks that went straight into the trash because of drunkness or the dozen synthenic [read: plastic] ‘corks’ I tossed rather than recycle). I fear that puts me well over 100 bottles this year.

It is a statistic that makes me go, hmmmmmm.

5) cork-mania

Utterly unless trivia: we had dim sum at Bright Pearl this morning in Chinatown East and sat across from Canadian author, Wayson Choy.

    You guys have impeccable taste. I didn’t realize the LCBO has a recycling program for corks. I’ll have to keep that in mind.
