principalpoop: the portuguese make good red wines
Elayne: I confess I've never really developed a taste for red wine, but I want to stay away from other alcoholic beverages because of what they seem to do to my blood pressure.

principalpoop: why would a wizard have that?
Dexter Fong: Bambi: I believe that any red wine does
llanwydd: I see
Elayne: My cardiologist was pleased with my BP numbers (and the fact that I type them out into a handy quarterly chart), so more of the same meds until I see him again in six months.
boney: Actually, they recorded the Presidential Suite on the rooftop just before they broke up. This performance is only available as a bootleg
Hemlock Stones: after a couple of glasses a Wizard will try anything poop
Bambi: red wine tends to give me a headache .. but I like them ... prefer Merlot

cease: good luck with your health, el
Elayne: But the minute I got home I collapsed. I'm really worn out this evening. I think I picked up something nasty when I was out today.
Bambi: well, apparently Merlot is made from blackberries rather than grapes
Hemlock Stones: lifts glass and says Good Health to all
cease: not good, el
Dexter Fong: Elayne: It's not nasty...it's righteous
boney: that was with the Pasadena Rooftop Orchestra, a British group, oddly
