I dream of a life of luxury, relaxing on a yacht in the Maldives or chilling out by the pool in a large chateau in southern France. In reality (a frustratingly persistent illusion) I'm an overworked, underpaid wage-slave with one foot in the grave and a liver the size of Canada.
I'm particularly fond of Aussie reds & NZ whites and that's why I'm here on BoozeMonkey: to learn.
I love drinking wine, but while I struggle daily with my inability to drink own body-weight in Shiraz and Cabernet Merlot at a single sitting, I console myself with the knowledge that I am blessed to have a supermodel-gorgeous wife and an Einstein-brilliant son. Thankfully he has both his mum's looks and her brains because I make Quasimodo look like Brad Pitt and I'm widely considered to be dumb as a sack of rocks... at least by those who know me well.
But I try not to let it bother me. Life's too short. You've got to take it easy and enjoy yourself. Relax. Live a little. Don't sweat the small stuff. And it's all small stuff.

Hot summers and cold beer
All time favourite? It was probably a Brouilly I had over twenty years ago. But it wasn't the wine -- we drank far too much to know what we were drinking that night -- it was the company & the atmosphere. I don't know if it was good wine, but it was certainly a good night.
