Channeling Jules Cobb – Or Just Her Giant Wine Glass and a Scientific Experiment

by Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) on November 7, 2012 · 61 comments

in Wednesday Hops,Wordful Wednesday,Wordless Wednesday

If you’ve been reading me for a while, you know by now that I make my own wine.  It’s a fun passion, and I’ve even won some awards for my finished wines.  People think it’s funny that even though I make all that wine on a regular basis, I’m not drinking it all the time.  I know, right?  I get too busy and forget to pour myself a glass – but when I do, I certainly enjoy it.

If any of you watch Cougar Town (can’t wait until they’re back with the new season in January) you know that Jules (Courtney Cox) has a love of wine, too.  So much so, that she usually drinks it from a ginormous wine glass.  I’ve been on the hunt for just such a wine glass, though they really are hard to find.  First she had Big Joe:

I finally found one that is similar (the important part of it is that it holds an entire bottle of wine):

Of course I have yet to break it out and fill it up, but I’ll do that for fun at some point.  Of course fans of the show know that Big Joe ended up getting broken by Travis’s girlfriend Kristen, so Big Carl took its place:

I’d love to find one like that – I could’ve sworn I saw the exact same one at either Michael’s or A.C. Moore, but trips there recently have come up empty.  I did, however, find a giant champagne glass at A.C. Moore on a recent trip with Princess Nagger to get some crafty supplies – of course I had to get one two:

Just so you can see a comparison, here’s one of them sitting next to the Big Joe replica which is sitting next to one of my regular wine glasses (that itself is slightly larger than the ‘norm’):

In case you wanted to see a more dramatic example, Princess Nagger decided to goof off with it so you can see how big it is:

I’m thinking it will probably hold more than one bottle of wine or champagne.  I’m also thinking it’s time for a scientific experiment to see how much wine or champagne it really holds, don’t you?

I do love the wine glass you have shared. It is very classy for those people who like to drink. Thanks for sharing it.

Thank you TracyAnn!

3 Jennifer November 7, 2012 at 3:14 am

Bwhahahaha!!! I absolutely love this! Heck, I think you deserve to use a glass that big if you’re not getting to enjoy your vino on a regular basis! May as well enjoy ALL your servings in one go, right?! LOL! Amazing. Please take a picture of yourself when you finally use it!

4 Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) November 7, 2012 at 11:42 am

Definitely deserve to enjoy wine in a glass that big since I tend to forget to enjoy it any other time! ;) I’ll definitely take a picture when that happens just for you, Jennifer! ;)

5 EdT. November 7, 2012 at 6:26 am

A little bit larger and it looks like PN could fit her entire head into that glass!

I wouldn’t mind one large enough to hold an entire bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue – on the other hand, maybe it’s better I don’t do that…

Happy WW!

LOL! Yes, if it were bigger she could probably fit her whole head in – probably good that it wasn’t or she would have tried! ;) Johnnie Walker Blue may be a little to potent for a glass that big… ;)

7 Charlotte November 7, 2012 at 7:47 am

I haven’t been able to drink wine since before I was pregnant. This makes me very sad! Love how you’ve found Big Joe! Hope you manage to find Big Carl! x

8 Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) November 7, 2012 at 11:44 am

That would make me sad too, Charlotte! I’m continuing the search for Big Carl! :)

9 Felicia November 7, 2012 at 8:46 am

Crazy huge, isn’t it, Felicia? :)

11 diane November 7, 2012 at 8:53 am

I’m not a fan of Big Carl, I was glad he broke. The first one was my favorite.
My neighbor has a new batch of Apple Cider Wine, I thought of you when the first bottle came out.
PN’s hair is really pretty, and so long. Can’t believe how big she’s getting. Babyzilla turned 6 today. Cute Hubby bought her a pair of Hulk Fists. Can’t wait to see her chase him around with them, haha.
Happy Wednesday! xo d

12 Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) November 7, 2012 at 11:48 am

You didn’t like Big Carl? He was my favorite – but I do like Big Joe too…apparently they’re going to be breaking a wine glass a season since Courtney is a klutz in real life (something we have in common…heh!) I’ll be curious to see what the next giant wine glass looks like. :)

Oooh, Apple Cider Wine – I missed out on making a batch this year since our apple tree was pitiful with apples this year (the too-warm spring followed by too-hot summer wreaked havoc). I might have to break down and just buy a slew of apples to make a batch this year!

Happy Birthday to Babyzilla! Time flies by way too fast doesn’t it? I’m looking forward to seeing the pics of her sporting her new Hulk Fists – that’ll be hilarious! :)

Nice glass. That is my size.

I wouldn’t be surprised if that size is the new normal. ;)

15 Lynn November 7, 2012 at 9:09 am

I haven’t watched the show but I think it’s great that you do your own wine. I have thought I might like to give this a try but for now I think I’m going to start with making some cider.

Oh and of course size does count and bigger is always better.

16 Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) November 7, 2012 at 11:49 am

Cider is awesome, too – I accidentally on purpose turned my first batch of cider into apple wine. :)

In this case bigger is definitely better! ;)

17 Heather November 7, 2012 at 9:31 am

That is a big wine glass! I need one of those :)

18 Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) November 7, 2012 at 11:50 am

I think we all should have a wine glass that size, don’t you? :)

19 Molly November 7, 2012 at 9:34 am

I do love a good glass of wine but not sure I would drink a whole bottle in one go. Maybe one glass to share with Mr. would be fun though


20 Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) November 7, 2012 at 11:50 am

I’m not sure I could drink a whole bottle in one go either – though it sure would be fun to try! ;)

I’m glad TBS picked them up when ABC let them go – it’ll be ABC’s loss for sure. Can’t wait ’till they’re back in January! I love Jules too – she’s such a dork! :)

23 VandyJ November 7, 2012 at 10:15 am

I’m thinking I need to check out Cougar Town. It’s not a show I watched but since it’s going to be on TBS, where we watch Big Bang regularly, I will definitely check it out.
As to the wine, well who doesn’t need a wine glass that holds an entire bottle of wine–just for fun?
Nick and I are going to embark on a wine making adventure this winter–he has been brewing beer and since we have some of the equipment we thought we give it a shot.

24 Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) November 7, 2012 at 11:54 am

You should definitely check out Cougar Town – it’s funny! And I’m glad TBS decided to keep them alive. :)

LOL – yes, everyone needs a wine glass that holds an entire bottle of wine just for fun!

Good luck with your wine brewing adventure – you’re not that far off with the beer brewing aside from different methods and stages, but you’re way ahead of the game already because of it! :) Let me know if you have questions – you’ll get hooked on the process, too. ;)

29 rosey November 7, 2012 at 1:13 pm

that would be a fun gift idea :)

30 Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) November 7, 2012 at 11:35 pm

Now that you mention it, Rosey – you’re so right, it would be a fun gift idea! Thanks for the inspiration! :)

31 kate November 7, 2012 at 1:27 pm

I love Cougar Town, I don’t drink wine but would love that glass of I did!

32 Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) November 7, 2012 at 11:36 pm

You could always use a glass like that to drink something else, Kate – at least that’s what Princess Nagger has suggested… ;)

33 Crys Wiltshire November 7, 2012 at 2:09 pm

That wine glass is impressively overkill. And I totally need one.

You might have to get one and use it next time you’re visiting your friend – then you could impress with the size. ;)

37 Laurie November 7, 2012 at 2:21 pm

I don’t watch Cougar Town…but I might have to next season. You had me laughing with all the incidents etc. The wine glasses are just too cute. What a great hostess idea this would be!

Great hostess idea – instead of just a bottle of wine, add the glass that holds a whole bottle! :)

That is one serious glass of wine. Totally dwarfs the piddly little one I’m drinking from at the moment :).

43 Nicole Pharr November 7, 2012 at 4:41 pm

I really like the biggest glass, it looks more elegant in comparison to the one that’s suppose to resemble Big Joe and you can DEFINITELY fit more than one glass of wine in that thing (score :))!!!

44 Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) November 7, 2012 at 11:41 pm

It does look more elegant, doesn’t it, Nicole? I’ll be curious to see if the biggest one I got will fit two bottles of wine… :)

45 angie November 7, 2012 at 5:18 pm

Funny how it didn’t look all that big until you put it next to a regular wine glass! My sisters FIL has been making his own wine for years, too!

46 Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) November 7, 2012 at 11:42 pm

That’s what I was thinking when I originally was just taking pictures of the giant glass by itself – I knew I had to set it next to others as a comparison or the size would be lost in translation. :) How cool your sister’s FIL makes his own wine, too! It really is a fun thing to do. :)
