Gaining value

It's Thursday, time for a trip to Bayview Village. I'm taking some time off from the gym. Both my wrists hurt so much, I can't bend them. They're both so sore that I can't hold a pan without wincing.

Been waiting for more than a week, but finally the 1995 Remoissenet Père et Fils Épenots, AC Pommard 1er Cru began arriving in stores. It's so rare to see an older Burgundy come out, never mind a Premier Cru of Pommard, so I was prepared to pay any amount of money. This bottle wasn't obscenely expensive, but.............well, it was just short of 3 digits, if you're interested in that sort of thing. I have a great dinner planned around this wine. I have a bottle of 1995 Château Latour à Pomerol as well, so it'd be really interesting to taste them side by side. Some duck to go along? Lobster? Wow, incredible, I can't wait.

I went to Ikea after, to see if I could find a set of reasonably priced steak knives. Failure. All the shit they sell is so cheap it's just not worth the effort. But, I did find a wonderful stainless steel mixing bowl, so it wasn't a total waste of time. But let's be honest. It's crazy, but I'm totally willing to buy the $80 set of 4 Wüsthof steak knives. You can't substitute for quality. Crazy, but I need high quality steak knives.
