Has anyone actually ever *bought* a bottle of champagne? The only time I've ever seen anyone procuring it is at work events where they award it to over-achieving employees. I've currently got two drawer units full of it at the office and sometimes I take one home for my evening drink. However, it doesn't work like normal wine whilst watching Eastenders, because you have to stand up every 5 minutes to belch and release the gas. I think it's a bit pretentious to indulge in wine you have to stand up to drink.
