The Best Things... - Page 4

Ditto the Economist. I don't understand why this magazine doesn't have subscription numbers in the hundreds of millions. Though annoyingly enough the only times mine reaches me before Monday afternoon (or sometimes even Tuesday!) is when I'm gone for the weekend, as happened last week. Since they print it here now they really ought to be able to get it into subscribers' hands by Thursday or Friday at the absolute latest.

Sipping a cup of freshly brewed Julius Meinl coffee with milk and a small square of Milka chocolate melted into it on a Sunday morning-ish, and reading the New York Times.

Sitting on a patio with someone interesting* and sharing a pitcher of frozen margaritas.
*male or female, this is all about the conversation and the 'ritas.

The fine mechanical precision of a well-honed rod-linkage manual shifter working directly atop its gearbox (see Miata, S2000).

A Neapolitan-tailored jacket in a high-quality cashmere.

A really nice warm and soft scarf. (Schuman's not the only one who appreciates scarves here!)

Breasts that provide ample volume to occupy one's hands fully, but no more than that.

My first glass of Haut-Brion.

The basses of the Berlin Philharmonic ripping into the fugue in the Beethoven 5th, Hill Auditorium, circa 1999.

Your average Chicago steak house.

The look of wonder when introducing someone to a new "best thing."


Heh, this was my thousandth post (again) and I completely missed it. Well, my picture of globetrotter is a best thing also:

(err, sorry Zach.)

Happy Holidays!

ZZ is a best thing.

Thinking of resuscitating this in response to the GQ/men's style 50 Most Stylish Things. Let's admit it, it's these sorts of fests of consumption and lifestyle porn that we turn to first in the style mags, with the slight urge to find that one accessory that just could make life complete...

So go to!

The Best Things:

the slight smell of summer and chlorine on the skin, the shimmering linear patterns at the bottom of a calm swimming pool, the light breaking through the palm trees...

Laphroaig on the early morning (2 AM) of one's birthday prior to going to bed, thumbing Derek Van der Bogaerde's memoirs... not bad.

EG's MTO program is definitely up there -- when are they relaunching their Top Drawer line?

Taking your 2 1/2 year old to ride the carousel and, as you are leaving, hearing him exclaim, "that was fun!"

The swish - perfection captured in a single moment.

Poppies opening in the garden
waking up up to a smiling s.o.
a perfect dark chocolate

The sweep of a mechanical watch's second hand

A mountaintop sunrise

The sound of the ocean outside your window

Macallan 18

The moment you realize a woman digs you

A speech/presentation/argument that you completely hit out of the ballpark

A perfectly cooked (medium-rare) porterhouse steak

Being completely in the moment, with nothing in the immediate past or future to worry you
