Next few days are going to be big.
I've made my decision, it's final. On this release, I am going to gorge on all the fine Bordeaux on offer. I'm going to splurge and spend like I never have, all in the name of the coming holidays and in the name of good wine. Hey, I promise I'll cut back my spending after this release. Promise.
Il Divo: The Promise has just been released. I don't know what the confusion is: my mother was in HMV and she couldn't figure out the difference between the $15.99 set and $19.99. How hard can it be? Now I have to go.
Saturday, we're having our dear family friends over to celebrate. It's been more than a year since we've hosted a dinner, so it's long overdue. Came up with a fantastic menu - we're talking 15-20 dishes of flavour and delight. I've also prepared the wine I'll be serving. It's going to be an epic dinner, and I'll try to document as much as I can. Of course, everyone knows that when we host, I always end up trashed because I've mastered the very Chinese art of forcing guests to eat and drink as much as humanly possible. Because dinner is typically 4-6 hours long, that also means eating and drinking as much as humanly possible yourself. I end up nice and buzzed halfway through. But all in good fun. No one really gets drunk.
