So I'm gonna get it up and going again, new and improved and re-named. The new name comes from a handle I had adopted on an internet forum where I talk (and argue relentlessly) about wine. It was an expression that popped into my head one day (anyone who knows me will understand why I chose it), and after a google search to see if anyone else had claimed the moniker (they hadn't), I found this on a random travel blog, describing a visit to Champagne, France:
"Some of the walls have carvings depicting the monks of the early champagne days as well as one of the "Champagne Floozy", a lady before her time who decided it was OK for ladies to join in with the drinking of this fine champagne."
So, of course, now I like the title even more. So, if you are reading this, thanks for doing so. I welcome comments, feedback, arguments, love letters, gifts, chain mail, hate mail, fan mail, jokes, and free booze, preferably champagne.
I've got plenty to tell you about, obviously. This past year I have worked my ass off, drank some great wine, spit out some insipid crap so you didn't have to, and busted the cherry on my passport.
I also fell in love.
I've got some big things planned for this year, and for the years to come. So stay tuned.
