a nice evening

Postby chris.ph » Fri Jul 17, 2009 8:09 pm

what is your idea of a perfect evening :?:
mine was a few years ago ,we had been out for a meal with friends and had come home at about 9pm,id taken the dog out for a walk ,come back and the boss had couched in on the sofa the dog settled into bed and i turned the tv on. i had a nice brandy and one of my treasured cuban cigars and watched "under milk wood" with richard burton.
no night of getting married or child birth this is purely self indulgence

A perfect evening? Hard to say. At the moment I think a decent, substantial meal with friends, followed by a summer evening spent in the garden would fit that bill...

It's easier to talk about the best evenings I've HAD rather than what I'd consider to be a perfect evening...

Well it would have to be in Tucson with Sharlene. It wouldn't matter too much what we were doing just as long as we were together. :)

Depends on how I'm feeling at the time. Sometimes it's hubby and I watching a movie, sometimes just reading a book, sometimes diving into a project, or what I'm in the mood for tonight - peace and quiet. :)

A quiet, peaceful day with a good book, a glass of red wine and some chocolate... Bliss! Image

A darkened room, several scantily clad women painted in day-glo, and a dark light camera. :lol:

May I be so bold as to ask you how many nice evenings you have in, let's say a month, Pooh?? :lol: :lol:

Not as many as I'd like to have, because I have trouble getting hold of the day-glo paint. :lol:

Sitting in the front yard, out in the middle of Nowhere, listening to all the birds singing, and feeling the warm sun on my face as it moves through the sky. Looking up and realizing that the kittens are not as scared of me as they were yesterday.

When I was in Brighton with my best friend. We went out in the evening to have dinner and maybe go to a pub. Then we'd return home somewhere around 00 and sit in the sofa watching tv (stand-up) and reading until 03-ish or we just fell asleep sitting there. Some of the best evenings I've ever had <3 (can't be done in Norway since a) nowhere remotely cheap or closeby to go out for casual dinner b) nothing good on tv, ever!)

But at least day-glo luminous paint is cheap in Norway! :lol:
