5 little niceties just for you

You probably read or heard of all the little niceties that cheney requests before he arrives at a hotel room. Things like all the TV’s must be tuned to Fox News and silly crap like that. Here’s the link if you missed it.

So let’s pretend we are the vice president of the United States. Our secretary sends out to the finest hotel a list of five things we must have when we arrive.

Here’s my own list
1. I would like gazillion thread count sheets on the bed and the bed must be firm, but not like a stone
2. I want a complete new wardrobe waiting for me appropriate to my schedule during my visit.
3. I want to be able to keep my dog with me in my room at all times
4. I want an endless supply of Sapphire Gin and all the ingredients for martinis (you saw that one coming, right?)
5. I want blooming gardenias in every room, all the time

Okay, now it’s your turn. What must you have awaiting you when you arrive?

1.) Bottles of Chippewa Springs, (a local Wisconsin spring), spring water so I don't have to take my meds with chemically treated city crap.

2.) WiFi

3.) Good water pressure in the shower that's not too far from the hot water heater, (which will have a large capacity and quick recovery time).

4.) Get "Link" TV station so I can watch Demcracy Now.

and

5.) Be on the first floor so I don't have to walk up the stairs

I'll bring my own martini fixins'

A) Continual Looping of Pro Beach Volleyball
B) 56" Plasma with PS2 and 3 (if available).. Can't be all work right?
C) Orgasmatron (that's not cheating right?)
D) Maker's Mart Manhattan Machine (vodka and gin give me assholitis)
E) An Air Horn so I can call room service subtely when I think of other stuff. It's also great when folks make suggestions in MY meetings.

I would never go to hotel that didn't already have a jacuzzi; so white trash.

Ah, I see the men are thinking alike, my first request was an appealing manservant.....

I would also want the flowers, but I want them to have a perfume that makes the room smell nice (lilies, or some nice stinky roses, or hyacinths, or lilacs, or gardenias, maybe even jasmine).

An excellent red (except Cabernet Sauvignon) for sipping with a good cheese and a good wafer of some kind will do nicely, too.

PoP,

This is more fum than all that political stuff at Craig's place.

Give me donviti's list with the things on Kathy C's that aren't already covered and I'll be happy (although I prefer Scotch to the gin, but with the little onions I can make do). Oh, and could I have an island in that ocean view?

1) Ice Cold Grey Goose, Club Soda, Limes, and ice.

2) A Poker Table, Craps Table, and Black Jack table

3) Girls in Lingerie to play against at the Poker, Craps, and Black Jack tables.

4) Girls in lingerie as cocktail waitresses. And to be fair to the ladies, some studs walking around in scantily clad uniforms.

5) A gaggle of close friends and fellow bloggers for a raucus good time.

6) I forgot food....Prime Rib, Filet Mignon, Caesar Salad, baked potato with all the fixings, lobster tail, king crab legs, and cheese cake for desert with a bottle of Dom Perignon.

Room temperature: 64 degrees
12-cup Mr. Coffee
1 lb French roast
TV: History Channel
Reading Material: "NY Times"
Other Requirements:
*A rubber mat in the tub so I don't fall on my rear. Is that TOO MUCH TO ASK?
* a new yellow legal pad and six new well-sharpened #1 pencils. That's #1, you idiots, not #2.
* A paperback murder mystery. I don't care who the author is but it should be set on a college campus and someone is killing the faculty, one by one.

2. I want a 12 pack of Sam Adams Light and some Xanax.
3. I want pizza with pineapple, green olives, and onions.
4. I want some of those curiously strong breath mints.
5. And, of course, the Daily Show must be on at all times. I'll watch some Colbert Report, too.

I wouldn't want that fucking job. I wouldn't want to stay in some luxury bullshit place.
I'd rather be out camping under a cloudless sky, star-filled at night, bluebird-blue in the day, where the quail covies run free and unmolested.
Nobody around but hikers and climbers, and I don't mean the opportunist kind.
Cold beer around the campfire would be acceptable...

2) Salma Hayek wearing nothing but a ponytail holder and a smile.

3) Uh... Well, that's all I'd need.

Ooooh - can I play? What would I want? Well....

1. A quarter ounce of some good bud would be nice. I haven't had any in a while - so I could definitely get with the program.

2. Several bottles of Monterey Vineyards Fire wine. An impossible request, as there are no longer any bottles in existence. This wine was VERY limited in distribution and actually had a shelf life (an after effect of the fire). Quite unusual for a red wine, but the reason was what made it exquisite.

3. Bring on that masseuse, armed to the teeth with scented oils. Make sure he’s trained in reflexology, aroma therapy and is blind as a bat!

4. Johnny Depp, Colin Firth and Hugh Jackmann all stark naked and tied to the bed with silk scarves (my fantasy – I can do exactly as I damn well please!)

5. And last but not least – some really good food to play with; chocolate (a warm dipping sauce would be great), fruit on ice (all bite-sized – only NO STRAWBERRIES!) and some crème freshe with pate and caviar (I don’t think I’ll be needing the crackers).

Ah well. A girl can dream, can’t she?

Let's see. I'll have:

1) Directions to the nearest mountain resort where I can flirt with disappearing, never to be heard from again;

2) Empty rooms on either side of me (I love my peace and quiet);

3) No room servie (ditto);

4) No television whatsoever -- if I see a TV in my room, I will break a leg off of a piece of furniture and smash the damned thing to smithereens; and

5) A case of Rolling Rock, since I don't really want to disappear all that badly.

I just like a toilet that flushes, running water, and a comfy bed. As long as they don't send up one of Dick Cheney's hookers, I'm pretty happy. Oh, and an ice machine down the way, that's a good thing.

Damn - You all sure have some great ideas.

1. Silk sheets on a medium firm bed, covered in rose petals.

2. The love of my life - and no I ain't tellin' who that is. ;)

3. Hash brownies & lots of fresh fruit in nibble size pieces. A large bowl of fresh whipped cream. Grand Marnier.

4. French doors that open to a veranda overlooking the ocean.

5. Excellent sound system.

1. Cable TV--loaded

2. Room service that includes Starbucks

3. Clos du Bois Chardonnay

4. endless supply of good Lindt chocolate

5. books of my choice, which will vary from day to day, but Slaughterhouse Five, Pride & Prejudice, and anything by Tolstoy are good choices. No Melville or you're fired.

6. The love of my life--if I ever find him

7. My dog

OMG, I've died and met the best people you'd ever could know in virtual heaven. And everyone here has excellent taste!

I am a simple person:

1. A bottle of Samuel Adams Triple Boch, circa 1996, room temp, with NY Style cheese cake.

2. George Clooney -- I just want to look at him, that's all. Really!

3. Make that 2 Samuel Adams.

4. A nice sun room for my cockatoo and African Grey.

5. Shoes that don't hurt my feet.

(That was fun. Thanks, POP.)

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
Now, I'm happy and lucky , I started to get real income.
It's all about how to choose a correct companion who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the income with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
