Shhh or they'll all be in here. There's not enough wine to go round. The landlord had a cockup on the wine ordering front

Ah I see in that case, I shall quietly have a large glass of whatever nice NZ white wine you may have . I'm sure it's all very nice quality (unlike here )

Persey, you're up late in the bar, aren't you?

Persey!!!!!!! Do you know what perse means in Finnish?

It is 9.40am where I am and hence a perfectly respectable hour to be in the bar
Malaysian wine? Hmmmm maybe not...

Google translate is a wonderful thing, isn't it. No I didn't know but, then again, I am not Finnish.

I'm not sure if there is such a thing as Malaysian wine. I could google but cannot be persed I suspect probably not. Most wines here are expensive, and the New Zealand wines even more so, so I usually only dream of New Zealand wine but I can have a Virtual NZ wine in here of course.
