I’ve decided to stop holding out on the “favorite things/alphabet” meme. You’ve probably seen it going around – someone who has already done the meme assigns you a letter, and you have to list ten things you love that begin with that letter. You do have to request the letter, though – I asked Kathy from Bermudaonion to assign me one, and she chose the letter F for me (guess why?).
These are a few – 10, to be exact – of my F-favorite things:
Family – husband, kid, stepkids, dad, sister, nephews, mother-in-law…you get the picture(s).
Friends – both the off-line and on-line varieties.
Furry critters, especially dogs – and most especially, this one. Gypsy puts up with a lot from us.
Fiction – I read much more nonfiction now than I did when I was younger, but a good story will always be what I love most in a book.
Feed reader – I could not follow the (probably excessive and insane) number of blogs that I do without my Google Reader; it’s invaluable. But if you’re only sending out a partial feed of your posts, I beg you to reconsider and switch to a full feed!
Food – If this were not true, I would not be a lifetime Weight Watchers member. I can still love food; I just have to be careful not to love it too much, especially pasta, breads, and chocolate.
Finds – I love exploring and discovering. New books and authors, or an engaging and well-written blog; a TV show or musician that isn’t too popular…yet; a new-to-me place to eat; a beach that’s not too crowded; a great dress that fits just right and is on sale – even if I’m not actively looking, I enjoy the thrill of the new encounter.
Funny stuff – people, stories, pictures and situations that make me laugh. I love a good joke and a bad pun, and as much as I enjoy laughing, I enjoy making other people laugh too – as long as it’s on purpose.
Fridays – Who doesn’t like Fridays? One of my favorite things about them is that they are followed by two days in a row when I don’t have to get up at 4:30 in the morning.
Fountains of Wayne – Have I mentioned how much I love this band? Oh yeah, I have. I guess you just have to hear about it one more time, then.
Thanks for getting me started, Kathy!
Care to play along? Just let me know in the comments – please include your e-mail if it’s not part of your profile! – and I’ll send you a letter (so to speak).
I love the family shots…provides some great insight into you and your family! Another great letter meme list!
Great list! I think you’re right – everyone loves Fridays!
Serena – Since my husband has his own blog now, he has allowed me to post pictures of my stepchildren here. It’s probably pretty obvious which kids are his and which are mine :-).
Kathy (Bermudaonion) – Thanks for getting me started. It was fun (one more thing that starts with F)!
Fine & fun food for thought 🙂
Dorte – Oh good, more F words :-)!
I think I share all your favorite F things! Oh– with the exception of Fountains of Wayne, of which I’ve only ever heard Stacy’s Mom, as far as I know.
Ali – I think that’s how most people know them. It’s a fun song, but they’ve done a lot better.
Food is definitely one of my downfalls. 🙂 And life just wouldn’t be the same without our furry critters.
Wendy (Literary Feline) – Good food adds so much to our lives – and unfortunately, to our bodies :-).
