I follow Evil Twin Wife’s blog, and she recently participated in a fun internet meme.
It’s actually called “Brought to you by the letter…” game. Here’s how it works…
You leave a comment on this post, and I’ll assign you a letter. You write about ten things you love that begin with your assigned letter, and post it at your place. When people comment on your list, you give them a letter, and the chain continues on and on. (I copied that from her and she copied off someone else, so… feel free to rip it off again).
I got the letter “T” so here is my list:
Turtles – turtles are the strangest creatures…they are armored and primitive but always seem so fragile. I always stop when I see them on the road and move them out of the way…I love to help turtles.
Toenails – actually, I hate toes, toenails and all things feet…except I love to tease the kids. Abigail in particular always asks me what we are having for dinner. I always answer “toe nail soup and an earwax sandwich”
Toadstools – well, the non-poisonous ones. I am just starting to learn about edible mushrooms…I really dig hunting mushrooms
Tahitian Treat! – Enough said
Taffy – Saltwater taffy is so awesome, but I only really like it when I am at the beach.
Tybee Island – One of my two favorite beach locations is Tybee Island, GA. We’re going there this summer assuming the economy doesn’t implode on itself
Truffles – I don’t think I have ever found a truffle I didn’t like. These are some of my favorite.
Tinkering – My grandfather was a tinkerer before me and I think I have picked up his tinkering addiction. I prefer to reinvent the wheel whenever possible. Even better, I like to over-engineer wherever I can!
Thera-gesic – I go to the gym pretty regularly and lift weights which, of course, leads to sore muscles. Thera-gesic absolutely saves lives!
Temperature – I like it hot. When I lived in PA, I thought I would die if I ever got hot. Moving to Tennessee broke me of that. I came to love the heat in Tennessee. Hey, that reminds me, I also love Tennessee. We moved to Nashville shortly after we were married to attend graduate school at Vanderbilt. For some reason we stayed when we finished school. So, Emily and I sort of grew up together there. We were pretty young when we got married so we had no idea about life on our own…we discovered it and each other in Nashville. Anyhow, back to temperature…I still love the heat. I have mentioned before that my office has 8 server computers in it which generate a lot of heat. It typically runs 80+ deg F during the day. I love it that way though. My co-workers call me a lizard…they say I need a rock and a heat lamp to finish out my habitat.
“T” is a pretty easy-going letter. One would think that it would be simple to come up with a list of stuff starting with “T” that one likes…I mean genuinely likes. It’s harder than you’d think. I am surprised and how hard this was.
So, if you want to participate, leave a comment to that effect and I will give you a letter. You can leave a comment and not participate too. Also, if you want to spread the fun, I wrote a little program to generate random letters so you can be fair in passing out letters to your respondees. Choose from the bigger-but-with-better-images version (6 mb) or the smaller-but-with-poorer-images version (300kb). As always, these programs are just for fun and not to be used for any nasty purpose or to be sold…

I’ll play…sounds like fun. Just give me an easy letter, please….
This sounds like fun, I want to play too!
Great list! Too funny on the letter generator. I pulled tiles from a Scrabble bag for the one I did. I pulled a Z for one person, but put it back. And I had to laugh about the earwax sandwich. When I taste something I think is gross, I say, “Ew! It tastes like earwax!”
Kris – you get A
YD – you get R
Both were generated by the handy-dandy letter randomizer!
ETW – my son now plays along as well. He always asks Abigail if she wants toenail fricassee or earwax over eggs, etc. Abigail hasn’t learned to ignore us yet so that adds to the fun!
Hmmm… I got this mental picture of a cross between an Iguana and Tim “The Toolman” Taylor
Loved this game … I’ll play too!
Grey Wolf – you get P
I think the iguana part is right on the money anyhow…I have scaly skin this time of year…I need to moisturize…naw
Mission complete. It’s scheduled to post at 9am on 1/14/09.
I am glad you folks played along. I thought this was a bunch of fun! Thanks for playing!
Oh, cool! If you’re still passing out letters I’ll take one but not any of the hard ones (well, okay, if I get a hard one I’ll come up with something!).
Lynnie – Sure, I am still passing out letters…you get ‘N’. That’s not too bad!
Just found your blog after a recomendation from Children in the Corn. It’s great and I will be back, Margaret.
And oh, can I play as well – but please, not a Z LOL
Margaret – Welcome! Sure you can play…I picked ‘M’ for you with my randomizer program (actually, ‘V’ came up first but I figured that would be too hard…go for it if you want!)
Great Post, i like the way you write really much 🙂 keep up good work
Talking about gardening, I saw a funny/cool/unbelievable sight… I saw a tree grown in a pot. Haha. I know it is hard to believe. It is not my plant, just my relatives plant 😀
Hi!. Thanks for the blog. I’ve been digging around for info, but there is so much out there. Google lead me here – good for you i guess! Keep up the good work. I will be popping back over in a few days to see if there is updated posts.
