Word of the Day #3

Sybaritic
I suspect we all want to satisfy our senses, and wallow in luxury - at least I hope so. Hedonism is the only ambition in town.

I found this word in the Terry-Thomas biog, Bounder, which contains fantastic anecdotes if being somewhat short on emotive detail. Almost 'bang on' you might say.

I knew nothing of Sybaris, but now I do and I'm happy to share it with you.
