rinia: Let it go, let it go
Can't hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
Turn away and slam the door!
I don't care
What they're going to say
Let the storm rage on,
The cold never bothered me anyway!
diehappy: A great sparkling wine like Champagne paired with battered cod and chips is unbeatable. The palate cleansing acidity is like a dip in ocean for my mouth, rejuvenating after each sip and preparing it for the next succulent bite of fish to enter.
chiefnaidu: I went to college near California wine country and I hate to say it, but one of my favorite memories were the late nights when we would jump into someone's car to get something to eat. Being college students the only things we could afford at that time of night was fast food and being wine country, someone with connections always had a cabinet full of wine in the dorm. That meant it was time for pairing wine with burgers and fries! My favorite "combo" (using the fast food lingo) was sparking wine with french fries and a red zinfandel with an In-n-Out hamburger. A valuable lesson I learned in college was that some of the greatest wines in the world don't have to drunk at a snobby restaurant, but can be best enjoyed while laughing with life long friends, junk food, and sitting cross legged on the floor of a college dorm room. No one can tell you how to enjoy wine ... and life for that matter ... except yourself. :)
kablamy: Someone who's lived in a remote village/ island with population <500 all their life and who has never seen buildings higher than 1 or 2 floors... would just be interesting to see their reaction and thoughts of the 'iconic' buildings that have become my local, and reaffirm my gratitude for being able to live in this wondrous city!
