A Little Of What You Fancy!


We all need a treat from time to time.
For the dogs it is a cheap frankfurter sausage that gets the blood pumping!
And this morning they had two each to be getting on with.
I was in two minds whether or not to get myself a scotch egg but I was virtuous and bought myself a melon instead!
My treat today will be a trip to the cinema this evening. The Prof is away so it's a lone trip to Theatre Clwyd to see Woody Allen's classic Manhattan
What's your treat to yourself?

  1. Oh you will enjoy that movie, even if you have seen it before .. I can always watch a Woody Allen film again and again.
    All those perfect little one-liners ..

    I don't think I am giving myself any treats today.
    But we will see ... have fun !

  3. I love Manhattan! One of my favorite movies. Starring Meryl Streep and her hair.

  4. Ha, the look on the dog's face says it all. Can I also add that your blog header-the image of the chicken staring straight at the camera gets me every time :)

    Enjoy your trip to the cinema. Today I will treat myself to a good book. Greetings!

    1. They were a group of rescued hens, sweet natured, friendly and dim

    2. I believe dim is the operative word when describing a chicken ... don't they look up when it rains and drown ? or is that turkey's .. second dimmest.

  5. I love honey roasted cashews. I have to be careful because they are a calorie explosion. I wouldn't mind if they were my last meal.

  6. What's my treat to myself? Not a goddamn melon, that's for sure! You're more virtuous than me.

  9. Congratulations on turning your back on a Scotch Egg. I haven't treated myself to anything in the food line in so long...but if I did....it would be Smoky Bacon Crips. (we call them chips but I didn't want to confuse you lol)

  10. My treats generally fall into the Chocolate category but I might splurge and buy something frivolous .. or better yet, I might just keep planning my escape back to New York.

    1. I'm going to dance the day you go back to NY! A good day indeed.

    2. LOL Linda .. is that for me or so you don't have to hear me talking about it anymore :)

      Delete
    3. Goodness you are planning an escape back to New York ? I remember your posted about your move to Florida.
      You just moved to Florida. Maybe you picked the wrong city. My friend lives in a beautiful part of old West Palm Beach. She posted a photo of one of the streets filled with beautiful ornate pink tinted building. Her city looked so beautiful.
      Good luck in whatever you choose.

  11. Seriously, friend; any canine that i want to interact with has a long nose. Anything else is a bizarre human self indulgence.

  13. If I buy a coffee out rather than have instant at home I think I am doing pretty well for myself!

  14. Treat to myself? Cheesecake at the moment. It changes from time to time. :-)

  15. 'Manhattan' was the first film in which (for most people? Certainly me) Ms Streep made an entry into public awareness. It's a good film - though I found especially indulgent the part where Woody runs through a list of some of his favourite things. Sounded like a show-off ("Look how knowledgeable I am!") - and singling out the slow movement of Mozart's 'Jupiter' symphony above all others is just (to me) bizarre!
    But as a whole it's a film to enjoy - and one of many of his I have on videotape (remember them?), all infinitely repeatable viewing.

    A self-treat? Now, let me think.......though whatever it is I could never equal Winnie's almost painful expression of yearning.

    1. I thought Sophie's Choice was what put her on the map ..

    2. Raymondo....it wasnt as funny as i remember! But the visuals were lovel

    3. Actually, NFB, 'Sophie' was preceded by not only 'Manhattan' (by three years), but also 'Kramer v Kramer' and 'French Lieutenant's Woman' - as well as a slightly lesser role in 'The Deer Hunter'.

      Delete
    4. 'Manhattan' is nowhere near a laugh-a-minute that so many of his earlier films were, J.G., though it's well worth watching, unlike some of them that came in the few years subsequent to it where he bemoans his lot - "I just don't WANT to be funny!" (I think that was 'Stardust Memories') - Oh, for goodness' sake, stop whingeing!

  16. An hour long massage followed by a glass of very good Cabernet while getting a pedicure and manicure. Sigh!

  17. Lying out in the snow on a minus 40*C night eating Galaxy chocolate, ( imported on my last trip to Scotland!), while watching the Aurora Borealis dancing away! Winter Special. For my dog Fionnula (Bernese), it's sharing an orange or Mandarin ..... Big Drool Moment there...lol!

  18. A food treat is a Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich. Like you with the Scotch Egg, I treat myself a few times a year and savor every bite.

    cheers, parsnip

  19. We both have a tendency to high blood sugar. We had a slice of pizza yesterday. It was GRRRRRREAT. LOL

  20. For Sandra it is minus 40 C for us, here in Virginia, it is plus 30 C. As a Lancashire lad the American beers, though good enough, are a bit too fizzy. So, my treat this week is that I bought some imported cans of Boddingtons and I'm having one each evening.

  28. I would have loved that to be a photo of Winnie just about to jump up and bite your cock off, but I don't think it would hold up in the courts - or anywhere else.

  39. My treat to myself is either a bowl of chocolate ice cream or some Lindt chocolate truffles. Or on a slighter larger scale, a walk along the Belfast Lough coastal path, which is pretty spectacular.

  41. Wanted to treat myself to a showing of 'What's up Doc' at the open air cinema in Edinburgh today but my boss kept me back and made me miss my train (you had to be there super-early because of increased security measures). Flippin' annoyed now.
