Just drink the bloody stuff.

Your typing still looks sober, but all the self-analysis is very drunkAxver. Slightly higher ramble factor, too...

That whole bootleg brought the lolz.
Oh yes, I remember that bit with the photographer! It's so random. Pre-Boy Bono brought the lulz. Hell, he brough the lulz until about War. Then he got serious. But he managed to keep it together until the end of the eighties; serious but cool. Then he just turned intoi a prat, over-seriously trying to be cool and failing, then just being a rambly git. Damn you, Bono. Shut up. Retire from public life like that thread on EYKIW mentions. Well, keep making music. I enjoy that. But shut up and stop prattling on about crap you don't fully understand. You aren't cool and nobody cares.

Not that I'm volunteering, mind!

OK, poured the ninth glass. The back of the bottle claims this wine brings blueberry and plum flavours, but I'm just not seeing it. Its texture isn't bad, and it's not that dry, but it lacks fruitiness, really. I wish it were more dry and oaky. That would suit it more.

If you were "seeing" blueberry and plum flavours, you would definitely be very drunk! And/or tripping on something.

All this fucking shiraz! But I like my pinot noir. It was my first wine love, back when I was seven. Ata Rangi pinot noir. Fucking great stuff. My father wasn't always the best, but he made sure that I grew up with good taste. Onya, Dad.

(Only a drunk Axver would say that!)
I've only ever seen it as "shiraz" when I've been over there. I might go looking at them again when I go to buy my schnapps. Wine is pretty overpriced over there, as I've began to notice so I suppose it's good that I go for the hard liquor for now!

I am pretty sure that the local grocery would have more of a selection than the carry out does and probably more reasonably priced, too.

You spotted them before I did... although I might have noticed one at the time but just not realised what a big deal it apparently is.

I am therefore more tired than you are drunk, so I'm going to bed.

Awww, go on! Maybe some good scenery? Don't make me wait until my father comes over again! As much as he has contributed to my life, it is not always the best idea for him and I to be in the same place for too long. We are perhaps too much alike, rather than too different.

Also, I am not yet drunk enough to forget spelling. 'Chauffeur' is correct.

That's worrisome!

You're such a pedant, it's great!

Actually, I do sort of taste it as it lasts in the mouth, but it really is not that notable, which is disappointing. For a wine not terribly oaky, I wish it were more prominent. Come on, Windy Peak, bring the fruits!
