My one experience with red wine put me off the stuff for life. In all fairness the best way to appreciate wine is probably not to buy a bottle of £2.50 Spanish red and swig it from the bottle outside a supermarket bog.

I don't get this stuff with food. I drink red with all food, just because I like it more than white. I don't mind rose, but my girlfriend absolutely loathes it, and occasionally rants about it being an indecisive drink. Choose red or white, not both! :lol:

Go order a pizza, from a decent-ish place, and eat it together with a glass of red, then you'll understand the food thing, cos it actually tastes better! My dad points this out everytime we have it :rolleyes: lol
And I never drink rose, its red or white, one or the other :P
Anyway, gone wildly off topic here lol

I'm happy today cos I got to sleep in, and lie in bed until 1 without being disturbed *streches* I needed that.

Mmm, pizza and wine. You've succeeded in making me hungry and thirsty. Damn it. :P

The question on everyone's (i.e. my) mind is: does pizza & wine taste better than mars? :P

haha, yeah well it wasn't all an essay (thank god) just a tour itinerary that took too fucking long to write! The 4 pages of explaining how I'd written it and explaining the roles of the tour manager only took a couple of hours lol. I dont wanna be a tour manager just cos I dont wanna have to write one of them fuckers again :rolleyes: lol

Bah, tricking me into thinking you'd written a 27 page essay, just to get some sympathy. Despicable. :P

I got some Ernie Ball Super Slinkies to put on my new Jackson. It took me 3 hours to figure out how to use the god damn floyd rose. I've never used one before. But what's made me happy is that it's all tuned now. Despite spending a further 3 hours tuning it in :)

All good and fun when they're strung and set-up, but getting them set up and restringing is a nightmare :( especially when changing tuning or guage :x
