More Questions - Late Night Version

Now I'm a few sheets to the wind with a bottle of our killer, off-dry sparkler under my belt (literally), but I'm still awake as I sip on the leftovers of Saturday's tasting - a stellar and well-out-of-my-price-range bottle of 2006 Guigal Cote Rotie "La Mouline."  Seriously, the fact that I'm sipping on $300 wine while watching Mad Men on Comcast On Demand is pretty nice, especially with this recent NorCal heat.  It's still around 80 degrees outside and we're approaching my bedtime.  As I linger in ruby red fruit, hints of roasted meats, and seamless tannic structure, I wonder a bit beyond the day's earlier insights.  Now I've got No Country For Old Men on TV muted and watching Javier Bardem with his mushroom haircut is starting to freak me out.  I need to focus on typing here. 

-Why do the 49ers think that firing Jimmy Raye is going to be enough to right this ship?  Singletary is garbage!

-Is KFC really so S-O, G, double O, G Good?  I think their biscuits are passable, but their chicken is terrible.

-Why do American's need to remake great foreign films?  The new American release of Sweden's legendary Let The Right One In, now renamed Let Me In, is an abomination. If you're going to remake classic horror cinema, then you need to take a terrible film, like The Hills Have Eyes and completely re-do it with a modern edge.  The modern remake of The Hills Have Eyes is a revelation.  The modern remake of A Nightmare On Elm Street is a travesty.

-Do androids dream of electric sheep?  Does Arnold know that he starred in the movie version of that short story? 

-How much water should one drink for every alcoholic beverage consumed over the course of the night?

-For all the Lillet we're selling, are most customers drinking it straight or mixing it in a cocktail?

-Why don't I call it a night?

-David Driscoll

"-How much water should one drink for every alcoholic beverage consumed over the course of the night?"

However much you drank, clearly it wasn't enough. Or so you will probably find out this morning.

Actually I found at around 3:30 when I woke up with a pasty mouth that more water was in order

I like Lillet by itself with a twist and a few ice cubes. However their Facebook feed posts multiple cocktail recipes a week and one of these days I will get around to trying one of them. That being said, I have Cocchi at home instead right now anyway.
