Rioja and Napoleon Dynamite

We met our new awesome neighbours last night – inviting them over for a bottle of wine. Two hours and one lovely bottle of Rioja later, we felt like old friends.

Also, the Montecillo is $2 off this month and is quite fruit forward for a Rioja, but you can still taste the dry, hot summer. We have another in the cellar [my basement floor – but cellar sounds better] so we may look for more new friends again soon. Or have our neighbours over again.

All this technology prompted me to start singing Lafawnduh’s song by Kip at the end of Napoleon Dynamite – If you’ve never seen the movie the follow Brother in Spain’s advice and don’t rent it – just go buy it!

Sure, the World Wide Web is great
But you, you make me ‘salvivate’

Yes, I love technology
But not as much as you, you see
But I still love technology
Always and forever
