Well, I personally like advanced physics and darker literature. Do those count as "finer"?

I would like to expound upon jackofwind's exposition with an example of my own.
I am a busy man. These days I rarely have time to enjoy the finer things in life. Between work, family and starting a business, my brain is so preoccupied with what it perceives to be the necessary things in life that it will not make time for the finer things in life. My bowels on the other hand, fully understand the delicate balance that must be kept in life and thus, I can always rely on my bowels to make time for me to enjoy the finer things in life. You see when my bowels call to me in that strange language we understand as nature, I know that in mere moments I will be able to remove myself from whatever mundane task I am currently occupying myself with, and whisk myself away to a fantasy land with a plot that has more turns than my small intestine.
You see friends, I read on the toilet. I don't just read, I absorb. For those glorious 3-7 minutes, I am not on the toilet, but in another world. Sometimes I read so much on the toilet, I look into the bowl after I'm done and expect to see not the brown tapestry of victory tattooed across my bowl, but the words of some desperate queen trying to save her dying kingdom. No matter how stressed, bored or busy I am, I can always count on my bowels to make time for me to enjoy the finer things in life...
... especially if it's spicy chili night.
Lovecraft is something I really wanted to let myself fall into and become immersed in. I received a copy of a bunch of Lovecraft tales from my wife with tons of annotations and notes in the back. Throughout the stories there would be numbered notes that would reference the back and give some further insight/context into what he was thinking/trying to express when he wrote the story. Unfortunately these notes were so insightful that I couldn't simply ignore them and let myself get into it, so every few pages I found myself breaking the flow of the story to be pulled to the back of the book for additional explanation.
Somewhat like Popup Video, but in book form.
I've been known to enjoy a piramides millenium and a Middleton VR every now and then.
i love fog and rain, they are such peaceful combination can literally drain all the bad feelings from my person
there was this day who also was my birthday and i was by the bridge of my town with my sister and it was raining and we could see the fog by the mountains, it was a simple day but yet one of the best
sadly it's hard to have fog and rain here those late days....
Would sleeping count?
Curling up with a good book in my warm bed, after an exhausting day of work. Slowly drifting off to sleep, with my cat purring softly beside me. Then waking up a few hours later, tired and angry that I have to go work soon. But then I glance at my clock, and realize it's 6 a.m. on a Saturday morning. Time to go back to sleep until noon.
I also enjoy classical music and chocolate.

To me it is all about old books. The bindings. The ink. The paper texture and even in some cases the glues all have a different tactile feel and a different smell that can give detail into the books age (mainly stemming from the glues/ink). There are few things finer then these tomes that contain our societies literary works.

I drink a glass of French Vanilla black tea every morning, hot of course. While I listen to classical music and read Lovecraft. I also enjoy chocolate, on occasion. I prefer milk chocolate over dark, though.
