This is one for the record books, hence me recording it.

I just bought this wine, this vintage, this everything for...

wait for it...

....


...wait for it..... $23.99 per bottle. I bought every single bottle they had. Did I feel like correcting their pricing? No. Do I feel the slightest bit guilty? Absolutely not. One woman was holding a bottle from 1999 in her mitts because "the label was pretty" and I almost leg wrassled her to the ground to wrench it away from her. I think I showed extraordinary restraint, all things considered.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! Guess what we're popping open if I sell my book? DUDE. I thought I was high tone drinking the 2004 vintage. LIFE IS FINE, MY FRIENDS.

How many fricking bottles of this stuff did you get??? I mean... a 30 bottle investment would be $18,000 worth of wine for $720...

Plus insurance. And the wine safe.

Wish I could have bought my car for that...

:::total awe:::

Note that the price on that link is for 12 - not, per. (But still!!)

I got four bottles, two at one of their shops, and two at the other. The third shop was sold out (I bet!)

Each store has my phone number and name and CAPS LOCK: CALL ME when this comes back in, any vintage, zomg.

Dude. My jaw literally dropped open and I stopped breathing when I saw what a bargain you got!!

I'd be jealous except I can't drink wine, it makes me really ill, so instead of jealous I'm just happy for you.

ENJOY.

Bloody hell.

Congratulations. If they don't recognise what they've got, you owe it to the wine to give it a better home.

I love the comment earlier that said I owed it to the wine to snatch it away from those senseless purveyors.

I couldn't agree more!

I would totally start drinking again for that. Well, especially since one of my main reasons for not drinking is that I can't stand my in law's taste in wine/beer.

Salut!


(I swear I did not mean that in a Hee Haw kind of way.)

You know, I never thought I liked wine until I was served GOOD wine. Then I went, "Hey. This stuff is delicious! And the food pairing DOES make everything better, huh!"

Now I am standing about with my hands on hips, feeling like a Big Girl. :D

Jan. 25th, 2009 03:16 pm (UTC)
YES YES YES! That's what it is, and I'm still astounded that they could let it go WILLINGLY at that ridiculous price! (And that they'll call me when MORE comes in! DUDE.)

You have to be on Antiques Wine Roadshow now. Yes! That is it! Or else save a bottle to open for when the Obama's come over for dinner. They will want to do that after they read your fabulous book. I am right you know......

Ahahahaa, do they have something like that? Because I will go in a heartbeat!

Ha, yeah, SURE that'll happen. I like that positive thinking, hee!

I want to ask you something seriously: do you think you can bring a keg to my intervention? I only ask because I know you have access to a stong man that can roll it. You get to do the first keg stand! (I'll be downing Irish Car bombs in the meantime.)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
