I have few favorites. Does that mean that I am picky? I’m not sure, perhaps it just means that stuff doesn’t strike me easily. But I do have items that top my list of “stuff” and here are a few of my favorites:
Favorite season: fall. I am a “fall” for color and I love all the beautiful crisp clear days and colorful trees. But it is way too short a season in Missouri. A few short weeks and it turns drab and dull. But for those weeks I am energetic and full of excitement.
Favorite color: copper. Weird huh? But I love the shine, the gloss, the goldy-reddish brown of it. My kitchen is painted sienna red and copper and whenever I see a copper shirt I just can’t resist. I tried to get a copper-colored car, but Subaru stopped making copper cars for my 2012 Impreza that I had made to order. Sad, it was such a beautiful color. They are getting out of the “niche color” market, so they say.
Favorite food: Crème Brulee! My taste buds were badly injured by chemotherapy and surgery, so I don’t taste carbohydrates well. But I do taste vanilla, crème and sugar. My favorite crème brulee is from Classic Cup on the Plaza in Kansas City. It is port wine crème brulee and it is “to die for”. I don’t get to eat it often, but when I do I eat it with my eyes shut mindfully savoring every bite and moaning in ecstasy.
Favorite jewel: I love sapphires of all colors, especially orange ones!
Favorite animal: Unicorn. I believe they are an extinct species. Who cares if they haven’t been found yet. I believe……
Favorite cartoon: Calvin and Hobbes followed by Bloom County. I am aging myself here! Thanks to a friend for introducing me to Heavenly Nostrils. A cartoon with a unicorn can be nothing but a wild ride!
Favorite country: England, but if I could live anywhere it would be Ireland in a traditional cottage. The green of Ireland calls to me, my ancestors are mostly Irish and I loved the short sojourn I had as a college student.
Favorite movie: Ok there are too many and I am not a good movie critic. I DONT like horror films and romantic comedies are high on my list. As a child it was The Last Unicorn. I suppose that Bridget Jones Diary is my favorite romantic comedy and Lord of the Rings trilogy is one of my favorite series. The BBC’s Jane Austin’s Persuasion is probably my all time favorite movie, which I watch whenever I am depressed or ill. It is so beautifully filmed and such a quiet, introspective film that I feel calm and relaxed after I watch it. And, I am embarrassed to say, my favorite all around wrong movie is The Hangover! It makes me collapse in a fit of the giggles.
Favorite TV show: “Face Off” and BBC’s “Sherlock Holmes” partly because……
Favorite actor: Benedict Cumberbatch. Who couldn’t love that voice, that talent, those blue eyes. And that name! He gave me the shivers as “Smaug, the DRAGON” in The Hobbit and I love his Sherlock Holmes interpretation.
Favorite non religious book: Probably my favorite all time book is Pride and Prejudice or Little Women, although that isn’t very interesting of me. Favorite series is Harry Potter, followed by the antics of Stephanie Plum novels. As a child– Little Woman, The Little Colonel series and Charlotte’s Web. I read each at least 30 times. I read until I was banned from them by my mom. As a teen I was obsessed with fantasy and I devoured anything by David Eddings and Piers Anthony. I don’t have much time to read anymore, other than blogs 🙂
Favorite song: Walking in the Air
Favorite thought? I have been cancer free for three years. I am now out of the high risk category and can say I beat grade 9 triple negative breast cancer. Yea me!
Favorite blog? I am not the groupie type. But middle age has surprised me in many ways. One of which is…I am a blog groupie to Memoirs Of A Dragon and his photo blog Eyes Of A Dragon. I proudly belong to the GAS society (Greg Admiration Society) and I promote him wherever I can. His poems are a dream and his photos alive with beauty. He showed me different poetry forms and I tried them with his encouragement. Greg is Canadian, hails from Victoria, BC and is very shy but if you ever get the privilege to know him a little you will find him to be a HUMBLE, sweet, kind, quirky, whimsical person with a quiet sense of humor that sneaks up on me when I least expect it. He is too shy to give an interview, although I hope someday he will….to me, his #1 fan! He loves all things dragons, so anyone who loves AMAZING poetry and dragons, go check him out! If you want to join the Greg Admiration Society (GAS) drop me a comment and I will add you to the admirer list! And then send it to him to prove how much he is admired! Disclaimer: Greg did NOT pay me any favors…or any kind….. for this free advertisement of his site…or his character! 🙂
