feeling: Good. Jittery because I drank too much coffee.

Okay, here's my 2 cents on the Beaujolais. It was too light. It was too acidic. It was sweet, but had little or no body. It was like drinking white wine. It was very odd. After it had aired out it was better.

I also drank way too much of it. I think I had four glasses. I don't think I meant to.

Anway, Jocelyn described waking up paranoid, and I had a nightmare about someone shooting paintballs into our bedroom from outside and then taking a picture of me, naked, while I was fending them off with my shiny new AutoCocker (which I don't have). I also slept in until like 9 am, which is not all that common for me nowadays.

The dream in and of itself was odd...and I wish I knew where it came from. The wierd part was that I could hear myself babbling in my dream. It was like I was yelling at this guy, but without any consonants, or at least, no percussive sounds coming out of my mouth. I got very frustrated with my innability to express myself in my dream, which made me yell louder.

At any rate, it was really odd. I don't think I'll be getting any of that wine again anytime soon.

On the other hand, we did find some that we really like, so, Nicole, check this one out when you get back to the states: Rosemont Estates Shiraz. I think it's an 03.

The Rosemont is fits our price range (under $10) We actually found it for 7.99.

I also picked out a bottle a few weeks back just because of the label. It turned out to be very tasty. It's called HOUSE WINE. Its hand written on the bottle with a sharpie. Well, at least that is what it looks like. It's a nice blend.

Nicole, if you like wine, we should go find a wine tasting somewhere while we're in town.

That would be great! I think that one of the things that I will miss the most is cheap Tuscan wine, it is the best.
