Bumper to bumper traffic on the LA freeway. It gives me time to enjoy my Chopin CDs.

Saturday night in. Soupe à l'oignon, French bread, Camembert lait cru, Vieux Mimolette, a vintage Rioja that's like silk, reading by the fire and listening to my new clock ticking! :D :D :D

A bottle of Abbots, and a lovely meal courtesy of friends.

What a great idea for a thread.

Being reminded by a newish coworker that, despite the ongoing problems and requisite complaining, I have a pretty damn good job.

1. Remember how to spell it (looks like you have)
2. Work out how to pronounce it.
3. Introduce it into every possible conversation, especially at arty-farty dinner-parties...

...here are some ideas...

"Well, Flora, at the risk of sounding like a complete curmudgeon..."

"Ah, yes, but Sebastian is known for his curmudgeonly take on life..."

"And do you know, Henrietta, the fellow had the impudence to call ME a curmudgeon...I ask you!"

Waking up to the smell of sizzling bacon.

Mc D's double cheeseburgers.

Ed's Diner's peanut butter malt milkshakes.

Dry, empty, twisty roads.

Getting a cross map tomahawk kill in Call of Duty.
I miss all the great things that may never be.
