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
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?
