Wineconed Wednesday – Wine and Whiskey Edition

Are you reading A Nervous Tic Motion Yet? You should be. I write a weekly column there – Wineconed Wednesdays. You know you want to throw some. And I would really love for you to join in!

And don’t hesitate to check out the other awesome sites who participated this week  – CubicleViews and Cajun Asian Chronicles. It’s all about the link love here people. Plus, they’re funny as all get out.

So. I’ve been hearing that some of you are still confused.

Winecones are for that point of frustration when you simply want to pick up a pinecone and hurl it at the offending person, place or thing. But such vitriol is tempered by the intense desire to curl up in a bunker with a deliciously aged cabernet.

I hear you. Trust me, no matter what it is, we hear you. There’s plenty we want to kick in the shins too. Let’s spread this far and wide! Please?

Winecones, whiskey and music. You’ll feel better. Well, mostly I like the song Whiskey Girl. Also, Wine and Whiskey would make a great name for a band.

And while I’m on this music kick (irony that this week’s post isn’t a lyrical edition, no?), a treble clef winecone at the radio – in its FACE. (Ha ha, see what I did there? Music theory humor.). I am sad that there are several songs that I soon must hate. Is it really that detrimental to the industry to spin more than three songs on a station’s playlist? Hmph.

You ever realize that so many winecone-eligible incidents take place at work? That’s because they cram a ton of completely disparate people into little pale polyester cages called cubicles. So we have a wineconing today brought to you by CubicleViews! (I can feel the love.)

(I TOLD you we were going to make this a thing!)

Being Wednesday, I’d like to throw some preemptive Winecones. I’ve about had it with coworkers who either insist on having conference calls in their cube via speakerphone OR those who talk so loud while on conference calls that you feel like their lips are literally on your ear. As these most often happen in my world on Thursdays and Fridays, I’d like to launch a Preemptive Winecone Strike.
Target in sites….

Wow. That’s taking it to the next level.

And now we’ve got ourselves a fellow blogging superhero bringing it with the winecones. (Can’t you just see Adam West’s Batman wineconing those office miscreants with cartoonish blasters?) On behalf of all of us here at A Nervous Tic, I bequeath CubicleViews an unlimited supply of winecones. Use them wisely. (Or whenever you get irritated. Either one.) FIRE IN THE CUBICLE!

We’re all about sharing – and getting warm fuzzies when other sites join in the fun. Share your blog wineconing with us!


Socks. I winecone socks! I can never find a matching pair – mine or the kids.

Editor’s note: A winecone at the laundry machine – super secret spy edition. Would love to see where all those missing socks go. At the very least, one of the cones can take out a sock gnome. And after tossing one or two winecones you may just realize that it’s up to you to start a new fashion trend. Who says socks need to match?


Below freezing temperatures. Negative 25-35 degrees with windchill? I will stay home thankyouverymuch.

Editor’s note: A snugly warmed winecone at the heater. Clearly hell has frozen over, because that’s my idea of hell. Stay home. Throw winecones. And some electric-blanketed winecones to defrost.

So much wineconing – we certainly can’t forget the smackaroos!

All of us at A Nervous Tic want to give a huge smackaroo to Abby, one of our tremendously awesome writers, for writing this post and bringing so many people over to our site. We love ya, girl!

And a kiss to CubicleViews. Thanks for stopping by. Whether you work in a cube, at home (parenthood counts), or some other equally frustrating environment, we all appreciate the laughter. And boy does it sound like you’ve got some winecones to throw, so the least we can do is toss a few smackaroos your way…

We love you all for reading – men, women, children (ok, maybe the kids shouldn’t be reading these). Help us spread the word, spread the winecones and spread the smackaroos. MUAH!

‘Till next week, winecones and kisses!

*Leave your Winecones in the comments or email us at and we’ll add yours next week!
