Wine Tasting Notes

Tuesday the 31st


It is Tuesday and New Year’s Eve. Do I care? I guess but not important. Since I have a new routine forming for past few weeks I have a few surprises here and there. I am used to not caring for the traditional calendar of public by now. Mine moves too fast AND is barely up and running. Because my work requires a lot of back to back activities I have a short attention span now. A todo list is a life saver because I have too much to do as in being busy handling little tasks in my mind and other things get forgotten or delayed unless a todo list keeps them and one visits the list regularly. That is where I am at. Tablet cannot go unless I carry a bag and I cannot Chromebook because no time. We shall see how we do since more stuff ahead. That is the state of Tuesday. I am reviewing a generic wine book and as appears I review a couple more and then I have to find tastings to attend. I guess I will be writing wine but my primary objective is to be on the wine calendar as of present time. My approach toward learning has changed over the past years. Instead of an organized and systematic approach to exploration I accept the fact that the field is a mess and no one system will allow me to handle it. I just get to work without a map basically. For now, after a primer that will mean occasional tastings as time and luck permit. I am sure what I write increases my level of activity for this and my Wine by Cush blog hence they become reactive for all practical purposes and this is in spite of the fact that most my publishing will happen by typing on a 4″ Nokia Lumia 520 screen! I think I produce just fine and I have changed my evaluation strategy also for sometime. Considering how many bad things happen regularly I only bother to mention or review the good ones. Too many to avoid means is better to mark good rather than put too many signs out in the field on bad ones. Fewer flags are a necessity to get somewhere. 31 Dec 2013 8:38 am Lake Merritt, California

Week 52 2013


I declare.

It is last week of 2013. I am starting new procedure. After the events that ruined our projects in San Francisco in past few months I have finally started a new course. We don’t have projects but lots of stuff going on. I am getting busier. My wine stuff begin to flow. It is like ice cubes breaking out of mold and starting to melt in liquid. Skimming wine books works very well. I tested the system. Borrowing a big ass book failed recently. Library is a good place when we don’t want to own but I move around too much. I never made it past the introduction. My business adviser says his system requires being stationary. He says humans moving too much as walking or driving or traveling cannot do quality business work. Something about effects of motion on biology of corpus. I add that to the list of what I am to do. So easy to talk about but implement? My test has been a success. I am about 11% into a review text. Some weird dude asked me what I am looking at in my phone on the train this morning. I told him I am reading a book moron. He was too weird so I skipped saying moron but that was it. He needed a shave too and told to be a bum running around transit train early Saturday morning. That was my morning and by afternoon after looking at them wine labels I was thinking wait a second! I remember this about you! And eventually realized the chunk is melting and begins to flow. I thought unused knowledge was in a cluster of neurons sitting in the back of the brain. Apparently it is frozen also and needs melting. There are those people who think I am very scientific person and I like that but they are outnumbered 10000 to 1 by those who say piss on his science if that is science. I don’t like them. My wine chunk begins to melt and flow. A couple of books from now I have to begin tasting also. I have insulted so many reps at tastings. BUT the account reps that sold wine to Uncle Cush loved my ass. Most of all whatever I bought I sold which is what needed to sell more. Those were their good old days. I never missed them. I could care less. This week has not been tense. It is 2014 and I got news I will have a night job soon. That is a long story. My business adviser like all the rest hired to help us lacks enough security clearance BUT sure can read. They finally had to tell him after he read one of my recent blog posts who Uncle Cush is in real real life. I got a mouthful and that I tell people I fired his ass for poor business advice? Their success formula is to go 24/7! I feel like dealing with them crazy Hollywood bastards BUT we have a lot of advisers and they all say what he says. I am moving and shaking again. I am supposed to be stationary for quality work AND travel all the time. I am not very nowadays. My projects should not have been ruined. I let everyone know when I start tasting and the reps begin complaining I am rude about their wines….”You have any good wines I can try?…..Ah! You are so rude! ….. What? I just don’t want to try all these wines. I know what they taste like! Anything good you want mw to try?” And I am learning French too….. 28 Dec 2013 6:08 pm Oakland, California
