Thursday 13: Thirteen Favorite Things

(I’m going to skip the blindingly obvious, like, say, Ken, and my cats, and Styx.)

  1. The lace-edged Post-It Notes I keep in my purse.
  2. Otters.
  3. PG Tipps tea. It’s my daily tea, so it must be my favorite. The rose tea from the Huntington Library is my favorite “special” tea, and I just got my hands on Glengettie, a Welsh tea (!) (despite the name), and ohmigods is it good! It would be my daily tea if it weren’t a wee bit pricey in comparison to PG Tipps (which, as an import, isn’t exactly cheap-like-Liptons).
  4. Cheese. A good stinky bleu (I love Trader Joe’s ), a slightly runny Brie, a sharp biting cheddar, a salty mizithra, creamycreamycheeseycreamy cheese… Bring ‘em on!
  5. Rose-scented anything.
  6. The sound of running water: a brook, a fountain…
  7. Pre-Raphaelite artwork.
  8. The microwave, the rice/veg steamer, and the George Foreman grill. Without those, I’d probably starve to death.
  9. ICanHasCheezburger.com
  10. The nesting pair of red-tailed hawks that lives in the high trees by the 1904 church about two blocks away.
  11. My friends all over the world. I squee every time I get a comment in my journal, or an e-mail, or a phone call….
  12. Silk.
  13. Reuben sandwiches. I make ‘em with pastrami or turkey, low-fat Swiss, low-fat Thousand Island dressing, rye (natch), and mounds of sauerkraut, on the aforementioned George Foreman grill. Yum!

Oh yeah, you got me with the Otters. Fantastic creatures. I wish there were more on my creek bank like there were forty years ago. I;m also a suck for Pre-Raphaelite artwork.

Cheese, the scent of a rose, the sound of running water... ah, yes, they're some of my favorites, too! Nice list! :)
