Like a sailor on a spree!
Now that both the jobs I work think it's okay to pay me this month, I'm like crazy go nuts! Matty Made Of Money! Oh, my frugal father will shudder when he reads this post.
I spent eight bucks on a single bottle of wine! At Trader Joe's!
Was it worth it, you might ask? Does such a profligate feel the remorse?
Yeah, it was worth it. Remorse? Not so much.
Francis Coppola puts his name on a nice bottle of wine. If you like Shiraz, Matty Boy says check it out. Somewhere during the second glass, you'll forget that every glass costs as much as a bottle of Two Buck Chuck.
Thinking of what song I wanted to accompany this post, of course I thought of UB40. I had a boatload of albums of UB40 back in the day, but I had them on vinyl or cassette. I have no UB40 CDs, so I had to go the the iTunes store. I bought nine UB40 tunes, even now when prices have gone from 99 cents a tune to $1.29. More spendthrift craziness, you might say! More road to ruin for poor Matty Boy!
Sue me. I loves me some UB40, especially before they decided to be a reggae version cover band and wrote some great political songs on their first few albums, like King and As Always You Were Wrong Again.
Now playing: UB40 - Red Red Wine
