Gin and TopicsBelieve it or not, this is the last Friday of November!

Which means there are only three more Fridays until Christmas.

Holy smokes!

I just made myself all panicked. I haven’t even thought about gifts yet. Oy.

Hopefully you’re further along than I am and can enjoy this week’s Gin and Topics…versus being all stressed out now.

(If you’re stressed out now, I’m sorry. Shall we drink through it together?)

Before I give you this week’s Gin and Topics, I would like you to know that Mattie Dietrich has agreed to produce this feature in two weeks (the day before her birthday). So look forward to that! Now she has to, has to do it because I wrote it here.


Gin and Topics for Your Viewing Pleasure

And now enjoy Gin and Topics.

This week’s videos are courtesy of the aforementioned Mattie Dietrich, Katie Robbert, Christopher S. Penn, Susan Moeller, and Susan Cellura.

5. Walter Geoffrey, the Frenchie. I have always wanted to see a Frenchie sing and dance. My wish has come true!

4. Another Singing Dog! I will never, ever admit how hard this made me laugh. I’m going to try it with Jack Bauer and will report back. He’s so old now, he’ll probably let me do it without a fight.

3. Cheap Wine Reviewed By An Irish Brewmaster. He is much more complimentary of these wines than I would be. Nothing would get above a zero from me. Also the score he gives Franzia boxed wine? And the Boone’s? Hilarious!

2. Service is Selling and Selling is Service. I have shared this on Gin and Topics before, but it’s one of those classics that needs to be rewatched at least once a year. You will definitely learn how to bring your retail selling skills to the next level after watching this. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

1. If My Brain Held a Morning Meeting. You know what I love about stuff like this? It’s so brilliant…and I’m so mad I didn’t think of it first. I love, love, love how she does costume changes to represent the different feelings/emotions. It’s an amateur (and much funnier) version of Inside Out.
