It's like a train wreck, in a way...

[Phoenix] Wright? Obviously gay.
Idgie's brother came over to spend Sunday with us. Much love. Idgie's family is awesome, I love hanging out with them. Especially when Stan shared a bottle of wine with me and spent a half hour educating me on some of the many nuances of wine. Yay for hands-on research! 8D Idgie and I are thinking of starting a wine regimen, and Stan also recommended a good California cab called Wall that's only $10 (cause we're too poor to afford much more if we're drinking a glass each every day XD), so we're going to get a bottle and try it out. So, I know I've got some drinkers on my f-list... :D Anyone have any other recommendations on a good, cheap red? Looking for something smooth, sweet, and heavy on the fruit.

I have, like, five million tags, the last secrets post coming up tonight, that evil fucking Untamed and Uncut show is on, and my mom called for our weekly talk and ajngonoroibhoindeinhibgunhiunjbh I'll be up tagging until 3 in the morning. XDDDDD

L-lol wine education. |D For my last languages trip we went to this vineyard, but since we were all underage we weren't allowed to try the wine, worse luck. We DID get to drink some very nice grape juice, though. 8D [/random]

Otherwise, I know very little about alcohol. :3

...WTF, visiting a vineyard and not being able to drink the wine? Laaaame. D: ...The grape juice sounds good though.

I know very little about alcohol, but I've become eager to learn, especially since I started playing Edgey as a connoisseur. >_> And wine is a pretty fascinating subject, there are so many things to learn about it, but they're more accessible than I really thought they'd be.

Ah, the downside of not being 18 until next March. And it was! Very nice grape juice, I would totally have nicked a bottle if I knew where they were kept.

Heh, it's a pity I still need to develop a taste for red wine. XD I have a feeling it's going to end up being an acquired taste for me.

:O Thief! Er...would-be thief!

It's probably an acquired taste for a lot of people. XD I'm beginning to think it won't be as hard to acquire as I thought it would, though. The zinfandel last night tasted pretty good. :3

It was reeeeally nice grape juice. And it wasn't for sale, either. >:

Ha ha, well when March rolls around I'll have to begin my acquisition of the taste, I guess. XP

Not for sale? Well that's a little odd. Is it stealing if the item isn't something they charge for, I wonder? XD

So you guys can drink at 18?
2nd-Sep-2008 06:32 pm (UTC)
Who knows?

Yup! Legally, at least, there has been many a house party where 14 year olds are getting drunk in the presence of adults no less >.>

Ah, that happens here too (and probably everywhere else that alcohol is prohibited by age). People can usually get their older friends, parents, even strangers to buy alcohol for them, or use fake IDs, stuff like that. Probably doesn't help that it's legal much later here (21).
2nd-Sep-2008 07:09 pm (UTC)
That doesn't sound like it would help at all. XD I mean, I don't think it's as big a deal here as some people do, but considering it's legal to have sex here at 16, it seems a little daft to have the drinking age be any higher than 18. XD But that's just my 2 pence.

The really daft part is that kids can be drafted into wartime service younger than they're allowed to drink. Brilliant, no?
2nd-Sep-2008 07:18 pm (UTC)
I'd like to see the person who thought that one up.

And then slap him silly. (With a smile on my face akin to the one in my icon.)
2nd-Sep-2008 07:27 pm (UTC)
Perfect. If you could, I'd gladly join you.

*VOICEOVER* And so begins the epic quest...

Actually, it's funny you should have said that, because it reminds me of this one scene from Gundam 00 where basically, Alle has just blown up this building that was the HQ of this war-inciting organisation, and he loses sleep over it and goes to Sumeragi asking for a drink (because he "feels like he really needs one") and she's all "You can't, you're underage. :|"

This after he's just blown up a building. Which kinda proves how stupid the whole thing is, really. I love it when fiction is relevant.

Clearly I must watch this Gundam at some point.
