Brought to you by the Letter "S"

The Evil Twin's Wife participated in a meme.
She left it open for others to participate if they wanted.
I wanted to.
I was assigned "S".
Not only is it fun, but it gives me an idea for today's blog.

Here's the deal:

  1. Leave a comment on this post and I will assign you a letter.
  2. Write about ten things you love that begin with said letter.
  3. Post the list on your blog.
  4. When people comment on your list, you assign a letter, and the game continues.
I will only assign a letter if you request it, so don't hesitate to comment ...
I'm not ashamed to say I love comments!

So, without further ado, I give you my S List, in no particular order.

  1. Starbucks. Ask anyone who knows me. I have a serious addiction to Starbucks. My usual is a Tall Skinny Vanilla Latte.
  2. Sleep. I have chronic insomnia. Sleep is precious to me.
  3. Sewing. For a real explanation on this see my other blog.
  4. Shower. I seem to have epiphanies in the shower. Don't ask. It's probably because my brain is allowed to wander since it doesn't have to concentrate on the task at hand. I also have epiphanies when I'm trying to fall asleep (see 2 above). They're usually Contessa related (see 3 above).
  5. Summer. I love summer. Spring is ok. Fall is nice too. Hate Winter. HATE. IT. To me, summer equals motorcycle, camping, long days, warm nights. Winter sucks.
  6. Salmon. Mmmmmmm, salmon. Just about every time we go out for dinner, I order salmon. The Husband doesn't particularly like salmon, so we don't have it at home. But a friend shared a BBQ recipe with him and he tried it out this summer. It was delish!
  7. Sisters. Alex, BJ and I are close. We call each other sisters. I love them dearly.
  8. Spa Day. This has become a ritual. At least once a year, my sisters (see 7 above) and I pick a spa and go nuts. This year, we're going to the Nouvelle Maria Spa at the King Edward. Massages, reflexology, facials, manis and pedis. Absolute Heaven!
  9. Spouse. What can I say. I'm a lucky girl. I'm married to the best guy ... he cooks, he cleans, he does the laundry, he takes care of the cars and motorcycles ... yup, I'm a lucky girl. I love you, hon!
  10. Sundays. The Husband works a lot. So do I for that matter. We don't get to spend a lot of time together. In fact, we only get every second Sunday together. We do get a few evenings each week, but if you're counting entire days to bond, it's only every other Sunday. So I absolutely love Sundays.

So that's my list.

I think what I'll do is expand on each item in future blogs. I know you'll all be waiting with bated breath.

Don't forget to leave your comments ... and let me know if you want to play along!

I want a letter, I want a letter, I want a letter.
Okay I don't have my own blog but I'll email it to you.
Please, please please can I have a letter...
I promise not to tell anyone what some of your epiphanies are that you get in the shower if you give me a letter!!!
(sometimes a little blackmail helps...lol)

Alex: Of course you can have a letter, sis! Your letter is L! I'll post your email when I get it.

Jennifer: You sent me a message on Facebook. Sorry you had trouble posting here :-( I'll be happy to post your email when I get it. Your letter is G!

Evil Twin's Wife said...

Excellent list! I'm so envious of the fun Spa day(s). You'll definitely have to blog about that so I can live vicariously!

Crazy Mo said...

BJ: You sent me an email that you want to play too. Your letter is T!

Tea - one cup of english breakfast a day keeps the sleepies away

Twizzlers - the red ones, not the black ones. And not the no-name brands. Ew.

Travelling - ok, it was better before all the airport hassles, but I still love the packing, the journey, long site-seeing walks and soft hotel bed sheets. And having my bed made every day. That's cool too.

Tapas - small, Spanish morsels of food to be eaten as a snack with a drink. There is an amazing Tapas restaurant on the Danforth. Can't remember it's name......

Trees - the small buds bursting forth into a blossom of green, and the majestic colours of autumn. Trees have it all. Except the stark branches in wintertime. Those aren't pretty. But I hate everything about winter, so I'm a bit biased.

I Love this...so cute and a nice little peek into your world.
I think I can handle a letter. but please don't let it be xy or z. :)

Little Miss Sunshine State said...

I'm a little short on blog ideas this week. Please give me a letter, Vanna.

Crazy Mo said...

BJ: Great list! I KNEW you'd have tea in there!!

Busy Bee Suz: I'm sure you can handle it. How about B? That should suit you!

Little Miss Sunshine State: I like these memes too for the exact same reason! Your letter is M!

Crazy Mo said...

Thanks, Clippy! I'll definitely read your blog ... always do! I didn't see your post. Gee ... I hope I didn't delete it by accident instead of publishing it. It's something I'd do. I'm kinda beautiful that way.
