One glass of wine? I'm willing to challenge this gender binary.
There is just no way that, when I open a bottle of wine with dinner, I am having only one glass. I mean, I cook while I'm drinking the first one. The second, and maybe third, are for eating.
@Diana Who are you people? I would like to join your tribe. It convinces me to keep trying, for a short while. I'll probably complain in open thread next week how I've given up.
@meetapossum They do this in southern France, so now you can double the stereotype. "I put ice in my wine because Europe." Sophistication/obnoxiousness: accomplished.
@districter Even just talking about Breaking Bad makes me a stereotype. Same goes for any other show, eg. BSG, Doctor Who (but those are all great so who cares?)
For me, many of these are half-truths. I don't need karaoke or drink, sadly, to slur "Don't Stop Believin'", nor do I need to be stoned to eat too many Doritos. They just have to be on and around. I mean, booze and pot help, but I rarely need that first indulgence to get to the next one. If that makes sense.
Also, mentioned upthread: white wine. I love nothing more than getting my day drunk or after work slow drunk on with white wine. I tell myself I'm not the stereotype because I drink it out of a juice glass.
I can't get into Wolf Hall. What is wrong with me?
@supernovice 2) Eyeko is my favorite liquid liner.
@lemonadefish When I worried that I was pregnant (and did not want to be) I understood everything as a sign of pregnancy/not pregnancy, depending on my mood. I can only imagine having the opposite dilemma, you have my sympathies and hugs.

My cover is not on this list! I'll have to try and find it. Hopefully someone buried that last cover deep in the pits of Tartarus.
