Re: Do you live the "Jimmy Buffet lifestyle"?

I attempted this once, and have the blew out flip flop to prove it.
Attempted blending the suave of Papa Hemingway with Buffet's coolness. It was fun for awhile. But when you are throwing as much money at booze as I was on the hole in the water I cruised on, you not only have to have hair of the dog to get some of your coolness back... ...but you end up broke.

Re: Do you live the "Jimmy Buffet lifestyle"?

jumping off your boat for a swim everyday that's possible is enough to keep you in shape until the bad news hits then jump off with a heavy weight

Boats are equal to women: Leave your boat/woman alone often, and you will always miss them. Living with either full time often results in malcontent.

Re: Do you live the "Jimmy Buffet lifestyle"?

Sort of: I live in Hawaii (not on my boat...too frickin warm!) I take great folks sailing off Honolulu one afternoon almost every weekend; after sailing we often go to La Marianna Sailing Club, one of the last real Tiki bars in Hawaii, and have some pupus and suds. A couple times a month I get with friends to play music (mostly Celtic). I work part-time 2 or 3 afternoons a week, and work on the boat (a 1986 Ericson 38...my 6th sloop), do some equities trading, practice my instruments., go for a swim at the beach or catch a nap.
So, you could say I'm close to living a "JB lifestyle", and I like it so much that I've put in my bid to be re-incarnated as the good man. Wish me luck!

It's our only life, no need to have JB as an icon or god, just to enjoy his reveries for fun and dilute them accordingly to realty.

Play, think, enjoy, and hope we come back to have the same chance again

Re: Do you live the "Jimmy Buffet lifestyle"?

It has nothing to do with working hard. I’ve lived and worked on boats most of my career, captained ships in Alaska and the Gulf of Mexico. Now when I’m on my sailboat I enjoy it and live the Buffett life style. Sorry you are so old and uptight to enjoy.

Re: Do you live the "Jimmy Buffet lifestyle"?

Cyrus Safari,
Maaate you just have to go with the flow and accept a compliment when one is given. Obviously the person saying this is just jealous of your good fortune and wishes they could do the same.
Anyhow what would be wrong with the Jimmy Buffet lifestyle in Margaritaville? Sounds like a good time to me.
Go for it and don’t take life too seriously, nobody gets out alive anyway.
Each to their own.

Re: Do you live the "Jimmy Buffet lifestyle"?

I worked for jimmy, was night manager at Margaritaville in Key West in the 90s and up until 2007. I am not a parrothead...but those are.his fans and they were great people to have as customers.
I hate to say it but I am living the Jimmy Buffett lifestyle...without the heavy drinking and smoking...but in mid 90s Jimmy cut his drinking 80% he decided he wanted to live a heathy old age.
Behind the Icon on stage much like himself really is a guy that loves nature, sailing, fishing, surfing, traveling, flying planes, and his family.
The parrotheads are not a bunch of drunks ok yes at his shows they drink allot but most of the year they are working like dogs..his shows give them the opportunity to forget work and live on a tropical island
I had a sailboat in Key West in the 90s
A few years ago 2015 I sailed my boat thru the Caribbean into the Panama Canal and crossed the Pacific with my wife. It took two years to get to our end point Thailand , where we are now.
Life should be a fun adventure...no matter how you do it and what you do...that is a Jimmy Buffett lifestyle.

Re: Do you live the "Jimmy Buffet lifestyle"?

A much used term in this thread is ‘parrot head’. We do not use the term ‘parrot head’ here in Oz however ‘dickhead’ is a term often used. So my question is this. Is a parrot head just a pissed dickhead? Or have a spoken out of turn?
Alternatively are parrot heads just fun people having a good time?
From all I have read in these posts it is difficult to tell. Just asking!
Michael

Re: Do you live the "Jimmy Buffet lifestyle"?

For the non American's. The Dixie Chicks are a female country band. Couple sisters and a lead singer. While on tour in London, less than two weeks before the USA invaded the sovereign nation of Iraq, the lead singer uttered the words 'We don't want this war, this violence, and we're ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas" referring to George W. Bush, President of the USA. Some new magical rule was invoked that you can't bad mouth the President while on foreign soil. So country music stations (which outnumbered all other music radio stations combined ) refused to play their music and held public gatherings to smash their records/CDs or whatever.

The ladies all took time off, had kids, etc. Later they released a new album that sold over 30 million copies. It was a push back to the ******** they suffered.

I still refer to this as the Dixie Chick effect. You can say anything you want but that doesn't mean there won't be repercussions.

Anyone want to argue that they were wrong to be against the Iraq war? I'd love to disagree with you.

Now for the OP: I surely want to live a little more like the Buffett songs.
