Fish Eye Merlot

So this is my first blog and I’ve decided to do it on an interesting topic…Consumerism. As you see above, I bought this lovely bottle of merlot tonight. Fish Eye Merlot…brightly colored, eccentric writing, appealing to the eyes. Every now and then, when I’m in the grocery store, I stop and look in my shopping cart to realize that most everything I buy is “Eye Candy” or something familiar that has been involuntarily forced into my head with some catchy jingle on the television or radio. The sole purpose of my choosing this particular bottle of merlot was simply because of its flamboyant color and design. Out of hundreds of thousands of choices, I commit myself to this one…and do you want to know why (Other than the obvious reasoning)? I’m the typical consumer! I am the epitome of what marketing vendors and society wants me to be! Some corporation is making money off of me for spending a dollar more for a jug more pleasing to the eyes. I have been bamboozled once again. You win this round…

In other news, Christmas is coming very shortly and as much as I would like to say “Ba, Humbug!” I am slowly acquiring bits of Christmas spirit along the way. Let’s make it a good one for the new addition to the family. I love you Ryder Caigan Wade! Happy Holidays To All
