Quote of the Day
Why don't you get out of that wet coat and into a dry martini?
I bought a piano once because I had the dream of playing As Time Goes By as some girl's leaning on it drinking a martini. Great image. But none of it worked out. I can't even play Chopsticks. But I've got a nice piano at my house!
One martini is all right. Two are too many, and three are not enough.
He was white and shaken, like a dry martini.
P. G. Wodehouse
When I was a little kid, all I wanted to do was to escape what I thought was the country and get to a city. Probably film and television had influenced me so much, I really thought the key to happiness was living a very artificial life in a penthouse in New York with martini glasses.
Fondue sets, martini shakers and juicing machines: three things the world could live completely without.
When I talk about my husband, I feel as if people roll their eyes. It's like when you're 16 and order a martini, and the waiter says, 'Do you think I'm stupid?'. They can't grasp that I'm old enough to be married.
I am prepared to believe that a dry martini slightly impairs the palate, but think what it does for the soul.
We sit down with the kids every single night, not that I want to every night - sometimes I'd rather be out with my husband having a martini at a swanky restaurant - but we sit down with our kids every night at dinner.
The great thing about working with NPR - and, really, there's like a million of 'em - is all the cool stuff I get to do for the public. Meet the president. Hang out at the National Finals Rodeo in Vegas. Drink a $10,000 martini.
As far I'm concerned, being an adult is way more fun than being a kid. But then I was a kid who wanted to be an adult. I'd watch shows like 'Bewitched' and see Darren come home and mix a martini and I'd go, 'That looks awesome! I want to do that!'
I think I'm probably much better at the boots and pocket knife thing than I am at the high heels and martini thing.
Sarah Wayne Callies

I don't get cast as the guy who steps off a yacht in a white linen suit with a martini.
It was always fun to skate with Paul Wylie and Paul Martini.
I love bookstores and booksellers. In my novel 'Dirty Martini,' I thanked over 3,000 booksellers by name in the back matter.
