The kitty is sleeping on the subwoofer under the table here. and the other two are sitting in the middle of the floor... just staring at me.

I think I make them uncomfy or something.

I'm trying to wake up a lil, drinking coffee, putzing around....

I've had even more incredibly good wine.
The night before last I had Mclaren Vale sauvingon blanc (which has the odd 'sub title' of "The Broken Fish Plate"), last night I had conundrum, this really fucking interesting white californian wine that apparently isn't made the same way twice. I think Karl is the only wine lover on my friends list, but it was the 2000. ::nods:: And then, after the Conundrum we had this KICK YOUR HEAD IN Shiraz Granache also from Mclaren Vale, d'Arry's Original.

Now, I feel like a big ol freak for getting into the wine thing and the terminology and so forth, and I really haven't as of yet... that would be scary...
But that wine had the most incredibly huge body and layered nose and .. it was just WOW.

I think it was too much of a wine for me, but it was incredible.

And I actually had to run around the house in order to find the bottles and make sure I was reporting accurately.
Heheh... I can't remember names.

Thus far, Australia seems to be the big hit with the wines. ::nods::

I ... I am devistatingly boring.

You're turning in to *such* a snob.

i don't know all the fanciness involved, but i love wine, and i'm always interested in hearing about the various ones. i like shiraz most i think, but even like some cheapo white wines too.

i do draw the line at shit that comes in a box.

Nah. When you get to the point where you can discorse intelligently on as many subjects as I do, then you might get boring.

So you need to add (to start):
Doctor Who
Mystery Science Theater

You probably already know about comic books, and you've got wine, so you probably only have to choose one of whisky or beer.

See? I'm too boring to live.

Lemme think. I think this is the list so far (in the order you've had them):

Nobilo sauvignon blanc (NZ - Marlborough, 2001)
Flora Springs "Soliloquy" sauvignon blanc (CA - Napa Valley, 1999)
Kaesler "Old Vines" shiraz (AU - Barossa Valley, 1996)
Coriole "Lloyd's Reserve" shiraz (AU - McLaren Vale, 1996)
Viking Grand shiraz (AU - Barossa Valley, 1997)
d'Arenberg "The Broken Fishplate" sauvignon blanc (AU - McLaren Vale/Adelaide, 2000)
Caymus "Conundrum" sauvignon blanc/semillon/chardonnay/voignier/muscat canelli (CA - Napa Valley, 2000)
d'Arenberg "d'Arry's Original" grenache/shiraz (AU - McLaren Vale, 1997)

The ones you've responded to the most are definitely the Aussie reds, and the only one you seemed kinda "ehh" about was that Soliloquy. Not bad so far, and hey, more to come. :)
