Packing list

Well, this long weekend has been nice, only because I've been resting up. Yes, and I'm still really enjoying that Monbazillac from yesterday. Stunning purity and balance.

I watched The Day the Earth Stood Still. What a shitfest. Really, that was the worst, steaming, pile of shit since 10,000 BC. Awful. Can we be real here? Keanu Reeves is a dead actor - at least The Matrix had a well-written story. This latest movie? Come on, it was based on a 1951 movie that had an absolutely ridiculous premise already, so expectations were low to begin with. Reeves just kind of sleepwalks through it, with eyes half open. That's embarrassing man, honestly, you should be ashamed of yourself for collecting a cheque for that bullshit.

I swear, if it wasn't for the delicate and stunningly beautiful Jennifer Connelly, I would have shut that shit off in 15 minutes. Too bad her considerable talents were wasted.

Anyways - packed up some wines for storage. Want to move them out before temperatures really start rising. More wine than I imagined - we're looking at about 95 bottles, did not expect that many. A lot of important (to me) wines to put away. Highlights are, of course, 2005 Bordeaux including the Hauts de Pontet, D'Aiguilhe, Croix de Beaucaillou. Also, some riesling, Chinon, Bandol, Champagne. And of course, my Le Clos Jordanne. Some good things.

If you're one of the lucky ones with a cellar at home, or even just a cool storage room in your basement, I hope you appreciate it. Otherwise you'll end up like me, a wine lover without a home. I feel like a schmuck every time I show up at my friend's place with a load of boxes. Kind of pathetic.
