Bitten by the holiday spirit bug, WireTap regular Gregor Ehrlich has generously agreed to help solve your problems, and you sent them in by the dozens. Here's the first batch of his thoughtful replies:
"Dear Gregor: I keep buying weird things after I have had a glass or two of wine. Last night it was a giant plush snowman and multigrain ranch Pringles which were, frankly, disgusting. Please help. Signed, Danielle Lemon"
(Ed's note: True story. I did buy a giant plush snowman and multigrain ranch Pringles, and they were disgusting)
Wine is for amateurs. Stick to my signature holiday cocktail of Tang
and Everclear. Way more efficient, packed with Vitamin C, and prettymuch shuts you down from buying anything after two glasses.
