Not only was it wine night last night, but there was wine in a news. Wine and China, no less. Because apparently 2009 was a great year for Bordeaux, and the Chinese are buying it up like very keen wine buyers. Apparently it's the sixth great year for Bordeaux in the last fifty years, and a bottle of 2005, which won't be ready to drink for at least another five years, is already worth £850. I'm sorry, but that is a rubbish wine. A wine which costs that much is rubbish, and a wine that you have to wait that long to drink is rubbish. Combined they are double rubbish. I'm drinking, as I write this, a 2008 Hungarian Merlot, which is superior partly because it's already ready to drink and partly because it cost me three quid. Bordeaux? More like Bore-deaux! Or rubbish-deaux, or something. You get the idea.
The wine is finished, now, as I write this, and yet I am still able to write this. Yet I have no complaints. I'm not some wine-crazy winehead that needs to be incapable of... what was I saying? Yeah.
Another news says that some an new bunch of blind snakes that have been found in Madagascar help to explain snakes' world domination. I'm sorry, but newsfail. Snakes do not dominate the world. I'm sorry, but if I had asked you just now what you thought dominated the world, you wouldn't have said snakes. Even if you'd asked you more directly whether you thought snakes dominated the world, you'd have said no. There's a simple reason for this, the most obvious reason there is. It's because snakes do not dominate the world. So nothing can explain their world domination, the same as nothing can explain why you are made of cheese. You are not made of cheese. Except maybe figuratively, and if you are I bet you're great really.
It's great having Anne here, by the way. I knew it would be, but I thought I should mention it. It would have seemed odd to, to me. Not that I shy away from what passes for oddness, but - ya know. Yeah.
that's all from me for now
see you around
