Luxury items..



My friend Doralong is taking a mental health day today,and I've become inspired to treat myself to a little pampering..I think this weekend.
You know those elegant "continental breakfasts" you get at like,Motel 6 and stuff?..Aside from the fact that just saying continental breakfast makes me feel good,I seriously enjoy the pomp and circumstance of approaching a soft boiled egg,in one of those decorative ceramic soft boiled egg stands,tapping the top off with a spoon,and scouring out the viscous contents...
It reeks of indulgence.

Top that off with a toasted English muffin,buttered and dripping with orange marmalade,(Oh sure,you can't really use the jar for a drinking glass when it's empty,but I also like saying "orange marmalade",..even though it reminds me of that Great Dane cartoon Marmaduke,...but still),and you've got yourself one helluva royal repast!

..Bailey's and coffee to cleanse the palate.

No Television!..I'll spend the day basking in the illusion that I'm thoroughly removed from the rest of humanity,oblivious to the plaintive wails of the less fortunate,listening to Buddy Holly music..You know,..like George Bush..
Say what you will about the guy,he knows to how get his "Sovereign Ruler" on.

I haven't yet determined the evening meal,but the Olive Garden has that whole Mediterranean/"Where would Cassius Brutus eat if he were alive today?" thing happenin'. .

Regardless,..or is it irregardless?..Whatever,..I'll be crowning the evening with a dram o' Makers Mark whiskey,and one of those $3.80 Honduran cigars,rolled on the thighs of Cuban women that were expatriated during Castro's Great Purge...That's not just the good life..
That's Gusto! ..

I heard once a great story of Buddy Holly told by Garrison Keillor from NPR's Prairie Home Companion.

Such great music to tune out the world for awhile.

Cigars rolled on thighs, man you have such a way with words.

Much Love

Danielle

Whoa Sling-Man...didn't I just read below that someone has an ulcer??? Yet the weekend is exponential in bibing this and that...tsk tsk! (shaking head)
Do we need to go over the rules again young man?

Mental health days are fabulous for us mental folks. I am ready for another one soon---very soon. I will tip my glass to you, actaully mug...love that coffee stuff.

Enjoy dear friend...think of us once in awhile. Don't get on your bike--promise?

Perhaps a disturbing phone call from a be-hatted friend up North to bother you during an inopportune moment?

ahhh, yes...a day for yourself...why do i get the feeling that you would like to roll them cigars on them cuban lady's thights your own self..?
a day for my ownself here in west would consist of a couple of cream cheese kolaches washed down with a dublin dr.pepper...(that's before diabetes)...now it would be some fresh fruit...and a glass of diet cranberry ginger ale..I could have the cigar though...as I don't smoke em...just chew on them...

ps..went out tonight to look at the moon...and it smiled at me..

Danielle- I wish that whole cigar saying was mine,but it's been around for a while.
Buddy rocks!..I have one of his tunes lined up for tomorrow.

cs- I'm not sure that a proper diet and lifestyle would make me live longer,or if it would just seem that way...and I promise not to drink and bike. ;)

Hat- Calls from behatted friends are counted as luxury items!

rosemary- Oh,I'm all for bling,(handbags..not so much),but there's something about the transient nature of food that feels luxurious. ;)

Yellowdog G.- Take your luxury where you find it doll.
Make time to chew on a good ceegar once in a while...you'll feel good!

Enjoy your day off buddy! Makers huh? See I knew you were a classy guy! Indulge and enjoy, we all deserve to do that for ourselves once in a while.

And it's not like anyone else is going to up and do it for you, at least in my world ;) Have a belt for me!

Ok, A.) - it's Regardless. (One of my biggest pet peeves is when people say irregardless.)

Secondly (anyone remember 16 Candles) if you're wanting a good Italian dinner, don't go to the Olive Garden. Come to my house!! I just made sauce this morning as a matter of fact. By 7:30 I had sauce made and a pumpkin gooey butter cake in the oven!

Next - whatever the hell you do - have fun doing it!!

Love,
Julie

Well hell, Sling. Now I have to go and think about what a luxury day would be for me. It would definitely involve copious amounts of good food, A fresh press pot of fancy pants coffee, The New York Times (and the time to enjoy it), a really good book, time to play with the dog, a tryst or two in the afternoon, followed up with an excellent poker game with a table full of rich, inebriated, fish. Perhaps a deep tissue massage squeezed in there somewhere.

I feel better already!

ya only live once (i think) so ya might as well grab all the luxury ya can.

ya kinda lost me when decided to forgo the tv. i bet 10 bucks that mel gibson's house will be the only thing left standing in malibu and don't want to miss larry king reporting on the glory of mel.

topeka kansas, what's your question to mel?

Mouse, Doralong, you...the universe is sending me a message and that message is, "Hie thee to a spa, missy".

One ignores the universe at one's peril, I've learned. I'm making an appointment today.

Hoo-eee, now that's some high livin', there. OK, the Olive Garden pretty much sucks, but I have to admit, I am addicted to their tirimisu, even though I have it on good authority that it comes pre-made in a plastic pan.

Is it weird that I have the sudden craving for a cigar now? You make it sound so appealing, somehow. Oh! I was once in Cigar Aficionado! I'll have to post the pic! Haven't thought about that in so long. Good times. Seriously, they were.

Well we expect full detailing of said luxury day. don't leave a thing out. Some of us live vicariously, you know.

doralong- Oh you bet!..Why,I practically got class drippin' outta my nose.
Cheers!

julie- Thanks for the word info!...Really.
I know what you mean about pet peeves.I know a guy that always says "supposably",and I just want to hit him with a rock.
In truth,Ive never even been to Olive Garden.I only said that so people would feel sorry for me,and invite me to their house for some real homestyle Italian. ;)

tater-That's just what I'm talkin' about right there buddy!
I'm lovin' the fish filled poker game idea. :)

Rube- I swear,I just thinkin' about mel!
Is mel okay?
Does mel have insurance?
How is this tragedy gonna affect mel??...
Eerie dude!

Rainey- Oh,..it's a cosmic imperative!
Hie thee a'once lass!

 
At 12:23 PM , Blogger Sling said...

more cowbell- Boy howdy,..ain't it though!
Okay,..seriously,I've been having a craving for a nice Honduran cigar.The quality of the volcanic soil is easily equal to that of Cuba.The Tobacco,as well as the growers and makers of cigars are all Cuban transplants anyway!
You know,..hell with it...I'm gonna go ahead and get me one o' them $7.99 models at the mall.

Hee hee.. "Boy Howdy"? Come on- where the hell were you raised? Or your Mamma was from the south..

 
At 1:27 PM , Blogger Sling said...

doralong- I'm a California native sugar,but my Mamma was from the Great State of Texas! ;)

Boy, talk about living in the lap of luxury. I am plumb jealous.:-)

 
At 2:35 PM , Blogger Sling said...

serena joy-..yes..(harrumph)..You may eat cake... ;)

 
At 4:32 PM , Blogger Doralong said...

Well precious that explains it plain and simple ;)

 
At 5:54 PM , Blogger Sling said...

doralong- You are wise beyond your youth.

 
At 8:12 PM , Blogger Middle Child said...

Ah Sling...you are not an Anglophile are you????

But it is nice to be waited on and take the time to look like a person of leisure...we all like that for sure.

 
At 8:23 PM , Blogger Sling said...

middle child- Speaking purely as a person of Germanic descent,I think the Angel Isles look mighty tasty indeed!..Oh yes..(rubs hands together)..
Still,...it's all about the ritual MC.
I have to admit,there's a very real appeal to the trappings of luxury. ;)

 
At 5:58 PM , Blogger Doralong said...

I hope it was a luxurious day of rituals and you spoiled yourself rotten..
