Last night was my "Friday night" for the week. Dinner with my sweetie and two old friends.
First bottle of wine was a 2009 Adelaida "The Tribe", syrah, mourvedre, grenache and a few other obscure (to me) varietals, accompanying beef and veggie shish-kabobs. Yummy! Then a second bottle, a Malbec from Argentina, with my home-made chocolate cream pie for desert. Pie topped with lots of whipped cream. Double yummy.

Phylyp,

Just because you don't capitalize your name does knott mean you can not capitalize your varietals!!!

And if the above doesn't make sense, have another drink!

Starting out with like, a Molson Canadian, eh?

Well now PTTP! It's still early, but I'll try to catch up. I had a reason to drink this week.

Hey, I can totally do my taxes under the influence. It is called liquid courage, isn't it?
Mind you, I am and have always been a coward so only a few Guinesses. Now if I could just uncurl the wife's death grip on her champagne glass and get her to give me her stuff we
could really get this party rollin'!

So I'm a few days early (or a few days late) but I have a bunch of awful busywork for school to grind through before I take off to Yosemite for spring break tomorrow night, and I'm afraid that my sixer of Modelo won't last and I'll have to break into the case of Olympia I bought for the trip. I didn't even know they still made Olympia until I stumbled into it today (they also had Hamm's!)

Edit: Reread the op, so...

1. Your current consumption

Ummm, 4?

2. At least one inflammatory comment **

Sport climbing is both!

3. Why you are drunk and typing on McTopo instead of doing something worthwhile, like driving to the crag.

This is my first one after a 4 year hiatus from school, so I'm gonna make it count (lousy weather be damned!)

Starting out with a lovely oak aged Tempranillo from Mendoza, Argentina. Very nice!

OK, so I am finally doing it - I am going caving in Huautla, Mexico!

Arguably the world's most spectacular cave system, 1500+ metres deep, scores of shafts and waterfalls, caving at its finest.

Always wanted to go, we are resuming explorations after a decades-long hiatus. All the focus back then had been on diving and connecting the systems and increasing the depth from the bottom down.

Well, it just so happens we have a number of recently discovered but unexplored entrances... will they connect?

Perhaps in a few weeks, your very own Dr. Piton will have some answers. I fly to Mexico City a week tonight, so with any luck next week I will be posting from a cantina down in Mexico.

I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly.

PTPP! I'm sorry that you have to go explore those caves in far away places, but I will share a sympathy drink for you.

I tested an Idaho Tempranillo tonight. Smooth and it does the job, but not like the better Dago Tempranillos, and nothing like drinking with the locals in Madrid!

Sluuuuurpp!

It was war on the ranchette today. The little blacks won over the big reds!

I had a Virgin Margarita tonight. I don't know if that's supposed to be capitalized but PTPP is a stickler for proper capitalization and it's his thread, so I'm taking no chances.

Anyway, VMs don't taste all that good.
On the plus side I DID go climbing today, woo-hoo! And I'm going tomorrow again.
Now got to go ice that shoulder...
Good night

I have this wierd vodka that comes in a glass skull. Kinda watery. Some nice dry Vermouth. Looking forward to the results.

Apparently the Banff Film Festival reel left some of my friends longing for some "real" climbing films. We need Tom Cochran back in the game. Nothing really good since "Solo."

Maybe some top roping this weekend. Gym perhaps if it's raining. So expensive!

Pete, just watched 'No Place On Earth' about the Ukrainian Jews who hid for a year and a half in a cave. You should see it. A caver, Chris Nichola, from New York went to Ukraine to
explore his roots and do a little caving. He found household items way down in this cave and said to himself "WTF?". Nine years of unrequited research later he got lucky and this film came about.

BTW, in the Special Features are some shorts of his other caving adventures like some really
long free rappel through a LARGE FREAKING WATERFALL! Yous guys are NUTS!

That's awesome. I'm about a third of the way through "Blind Descent", which covers some of those expeditions. I'll be keeping an eye out for any updates on how these new explorations are going.
