Guest Post: Six ingredients for a good weekend

1. Go for a bike ride. Unless it's snowing wherever you are, in which case you're excused.
2. Watch Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. One of the funniest and most underrated movies of all time.
3. Make a gin cocktail. Gin is for grown-ups--so pass on those froofy drinks with the umbrellas.
4. Eat quality Camembert. Need I say more?
5. Drive a vintage car. Preferably slowly and through the countryside.
6. Dance to ABBA. You know you love them! Don't deny it.

Have a lovely weekend, everybody.

Excellent suggestions. But for one who became on gin, just one time, I stick w/vodka:)

Cheers & have enjoyed your posts.

In the words of the Swedish Fab Four "I do, I do, I do" love this list.

Clinking your glass and passing the cheese platter,

Ooh, a bike ride sounds heavenly. Unfortunately, with the rain and thirty degree temperatures we're having (even if it's not snow!), I don't think that's in the cards for this weekend in Boston!

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels = Steve Martin at his best.

Robyn said...

oh yes,Hendricks is my favourite!

Gaelan @ Uschi and Kay said...

This sounds like a great weekend except that it is snowing here in Toronto so the bike ride is out. But everything else is in!

Prippy Handbook said...

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is one of my FAVORITE movies! SO hilarious and Michael Caine's comedic timing is superb.

hannah, heart city said...

love this- and i want that bike!

Stephanie @ Blawsom said...

This is perfect! I am especially fond of ingredients 1, 4, 5 & 6! I'd probably replace the gin cocktail with a glass of wine and pair that with #4... haha.

saltandpine said...

Yay for gin & ABBA!
;)

Nick Goddard said...

Hi Jan--why would an old car have a particularly large carbon footprint? Carbon dioxide emissions are directly and linearly related to fuel consumption. While an old car might not meet emissions checks (for NOX, CO, particulates, etc.), it likely emits no more carbon dioxide that the car you drive every day.

Also, can we drive it quickly through the countryside?

YES! ABBA!

Eva / Sycamore Street Press said...

Great ideas! I love that movie, too.... so funny! And the locations are just gorgeous. And you're so right about Abba. I realized I loved them when I first saw Muriel's Wedding.

p.s. I'm loving all your guest posts, Miss Moss. :)

Looks Good To Me! said...

Gin & Camembert, yes!

Lorin Drinkard said...

Absolutely, completely agree about your movie selection. DRS (yes, I just abbreeved it!) has to be Steve Martin's best performance ever.

gianna caputo said...

i don't even like gin, but a hendricks and cucumber gimlet is as close to perfect as a {gin} drink can get.

An Invitation said...

These all sound wonderful! I'm going to incorporate at least a couple into my weekend :)

I was so tickled to see the vw karmann ghia.

It is one my husband's favorite cars, so yes, we would LOVE to take a country stroll in that beaut.

p.s.I hope you had a lovely "stay vacation" with Alex.

Lynne said...

I feel compelled to tell you that my family and I have been having an on-going conversation about gin. I am the only one in my family who likes it. So your post about making a gin cocktail was quite timely!

Alice Young said...

I cannot believe you mentioned dirty rotten scoundrels! I have never heard anyone care about that movie except myself. I absolutely agree with your appraisal. Top of my funny movie list!

Alessandra said...

I wouldn't mind a bike that colour!

Laura J said...

OMG! I love this post! These are my ingredients for a qualityweekend too- esp. the delicious Hendricks gin and Camembert! I might switch out Dirty Rotten Scoundrels(although I love) for the original Sabrina - it always makes my day!

Lauren said...

interesting blog! by the way, i would not discourage from biking in the snow. it may be a little slippy, but there's something super charming about it. we do it all the time here in copenhagen - http://www.copenhagencyclechic.com/search/label/snow - some photographic evidence from another blog i like. :)
