Friday Frivolity: A Friday Five (Getaway Edition

8 June 2007

From the Gals:

Suppose you were told to pack some essentials for a trip to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Describe your location, in general or specific terms and….

1) What book(s) will you bring?

Spot of Bother by Mark Haddon, my Journal, and my Breviary

2) What music accompanies you?

My iPod, probably, so all of it!  The important stuff is Indigo Girls, some bluegrass and country, some Cuban music, and Beck’s Sea Change (a great traveling album.)

3) What essentials of everyday living must you take (as in the health and beauty aids aisle variety)?

Hmm . . . not many of these: a razor, travel-sized shaving cream, shampoo, and soap, deodorant, and a little bit of Clubman’s Bay Rum cologne if it’s hot (I’m kind of stinky.)

4) What technological gadgets if any, will you take with you or do you leave it all behind?

See 2.  BUT.  THAT’S.  IT!

5) What culinary delights will you partake in while there?

See, I was imagining Rome, or some other Italian town or city.  Saltimbocca, excellent wines, salumi crudo panini.  Oh yeah.  Color me FAT.

BONUS: What makes for a perfect day on vacation for you?

No drama.  Natural or urban beauty.  Good people and good food.
