So, you may be asking yourself.. where did this "Peel Me A Grape" title come from.. why did it change from "simplysandi"?
I have decided that "simplysandi" is no longer original. When I created my very first blog, "simplysandi", I didn't know that there was another "simplysandi" blog. My first clue should have been when I couldn't actually get just "simplysandi" but had to name it "simplysandiblog". Duh ! But I was new to the whole world of blogging. Then, Vera Wang stole my idea with her "Simply Vera" line at Kohl's, and I just didn't feel simply original anymore.
I discovered Diana Krall back in 1998 - switching channels on cable.. and she was playing at a festival in Rhode Island. She is awesome. She sings jazz... and one of the songs she sings is "Peel Me A Grape"...
(If you click on the title of this blog, it will take you to her website.)
I love this song, and grapes are made from wine, and I love wine, and I thought maybe if I did actually "peel" the grapes before I ate them, I might even lose some weight... which is a thing I'd LOVE to do... so it's simply a winning combo..
So, welcome to my head! Look forward to sharing more of my wacky thoughts with you... one grape at a time!
