Indulging

Yesterday’s Perfect Moment was a bit of indulgence. After a morning of doctor appointments which only yielded further appointments, and a fruitless search at the library for something to read, I was ready for indulgence.

I shouldn’t whine too much. I went to the library unprepared and in a bit of a time crunch.  If I had had more time, I might have found some inspiring books.  I really had the wrong mindset.  I managed to take a couple of books away, but I will have to go back when I have more time and try and find something else.

Please, please feel free to recommend some books (classic or new)

On a positive note, I did get to meet a local artist Ana Kingdon. She was painting in the library.  She is definitely talented and a few of her pieces really spoke to me.  (the one with the bicycle).  Here is a link to her moment in the library.

Back to indulgence. I really shouldn’t be hyping up anyone’s products.  I am not a professional reviewer, and the company didn’t give this too me for free.  It would be awesome if I could do that some day.  I have even written some letters to try and make this happen.  No luck so far.

Back to indulgence. Mixing ice cream and alcohol sounds like a no brainer to me.  I am sure there are some issues with temperature, and this is probably more flavour simulation than alcohol, but they seemed to have accomplished it.  It was delicious and decadent.  Despite the adult nature of my indulgence, I was unable to accompany it with a Kabuki drama and other high arts.  Instead, I watched some low-brow TV to relax.

About Anthony

I am: equal parts rebel, romantic and shockingly average Joe. a writer trapped inside of an ESL teacher's body. an introverted attention seeker. a teacher who hopes one day to be called "Captain, my Captain." an intellectual who can do some very dumb things. a person whose Japan experience, despite being so long ago, still exerts a strong influence upon him. a lover of books, music, beer, hockey and Pizza.

    That ice cream does sound very wickedly indulgent, Anthony! Glad you had a nice treat to compensate for what otherwise sounds like a rather listless day. I’m not sure whether they’ll have a copy at your library, but I just finished a book called “Marcel’s Letters” you may enjoy (full disclosure: My friend Carolyn Porter wrote it, but I recommend it freely because it’s a fascinating story!). Happy Sunday to you.

    That ice-cream looks damn good. What is low-brow television in your world?

    I had sangria with strawberry ice cream yesterday and I do not regret a thing!

    Book recommendation: I recently picked up a graphic novel called The Hunting Accident. It’s about Blindness, prison, and Dante. Interesting stuff.

    As for the ice cream–praline ice cream with bourbon. It’s my weakness right now.
