What are you like when you are drunk?

More liquor. Although I’ve never been a big drinker – I have always sought out other highs – I’ve recently developed a close acquaintanceship with red wine, especially Chateau Latour 1982, one of the finest vintages since Caesar planted the vine. Unfortunately it is about 200 bucks a bottle.quotedown2

    Alcoholism runs in my family, and marijuana is illegal. I am trying out hemp oil. I’m not sure about it; I think I get a little lift. The first few times I smoked pot as a kid, I couldn’t feel anything so anything is possible. They sell it for between $20 and $200 in tobacco stores.

    I love a good Bordeaux. Leonard Cohen was right on when he said:
    “The wine experts talk about the flavour and the bouquet and whether it has legs and the tannins and the fruit and the symphonies of tastes. But nobody talks about the high. Bordeaux is a wine that vintners have worked on for about 1,000 years. Each wine has a very specific high, which is never mentioned.”

    So the good folks from the only desert in Canada, irrigated a corner of it, kidnapped one of those vintners from Chateau Latour and set him up in the southern Okanagon Valley. They have never looked back. Now I can purchase Leonard’s 1000 year old “Bordeaux High” right here, at a New World price.
    Thank you Leonard Cohen – and Happy Birthday!
