Fifteen (or so) of my Favorites

I think the food items are mostly carryovers from childhood.

  1. Candy: Gummy Bears (the harder variety, such as the Haribo brand) and Tootsie Pops; chocolate in general
  2. Ice Cream: Orange Cream (Orange Sherbet and Vanilla Ice Cream)
  3. Foods: Pizza (Now there are other foods that I would probably like better than pizza with more complex flavors, but I'd sit down to a pizza any day of the week. Eating pizza makes my brain giggle; it makes me want to dance), Cheeses, Toasted and buttered Polish Rye bread, Poached Eggs on Toast
  4. Drink: Diet Coke, alas no more - the caffeine, it hurts
  5. Computer: My Mac, of course
  6. Car: Corvette
  7. Color: Blue
  8. Video Games: Halo (currently, not that I play video games), but I loved Quake, Doom, Donkey Kong (and the whole Mario Bros. franchise), Pac Man, Joust, Frogger, and Asteroids in their days
  9. TV Shows: 24 and Lost
  10. Movies: The Mission; Braveheart; Lord of the Rings; The Passion of the Christ; Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; and loads of others
  11. Most Nostalgic Movies: Karate Kid, Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Goonies
  12. Books: Shakespeare's plays, Lord of the Rings, Till We Have Faces by Lewis
  13. Poets: Gerard Manley Hopkins, Shakespeare (his plays), and Emily Dickinson; Contemporary poets: Seamus Heaney and Billy Collins
  14. Musicians/Bands: U2, Nicklecreek, Sufjan Stevens, David Crowder* Band
  15. Songs: "With or Without You," "Beautiful Day" (U2); "The Fox," "Sweet Afton" (Nicklecreek); "Kathy's Song" (Simon & Garfunkel); "Carolina in My Mind" (James Taylor)

Mock away, dear reader. Did I miss anything?

lol - that would be Fine, but it's not meant to be. My wife drew a line in the sand, and the Xbox is on the other side of that line. : )

And she drew that line because you are an adult...or because you are an adult she should have let you draw or not draw it yourself...regardless, I think you should thank her.

Scott said...

Oh, I thank her every day for it, Alison. : )
