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…
