Wine Quote Of The Week!

Well, I’ll concede it, I’ve gotten my Ts mixed-up; I was to post this on Tuesday, and here it is Thursday; an alphebetary aberration of a sort, but one I’ll hope to rectify with the following quote, a rather excellent contribution to the “Priorities, Priorities” folder in every individual’s psychological filing cabinet, and one which comes to us from the very, very, very great James Joyce:

“What is better than to sit at the end of the day and drink wine with friends, or substitutes for friends?”

Now, that’s not to try and give you the impression that Ol’ Mr. Joyce was just another run-of-the-mill curmudgeonly foodie, no, no sirree, in fact, it’s rather clear he had a decidedly peculiar way of sussing the culinary pleasures of the world, as is perhaps evidenced by the following most striking of quotes (and I’ll preface this by saying that I sincerely hope this is my only post to end with the three words this one ends with!) :

“A corpse is meat gone bad. Well and what’s cheese? Corpse of milk.”
