Favorite F’s

5 Feb

So, here’s the deal with this–I saw this blog on If I Had to Pick Five –she gave me the letter “F” and I need to come up with 10 things I love that start with that letter.  Oh boy…here goes!

1.  FOOD  I LOVE Food.  I mean, I have a blog category for it.  Granted, there is only one blog there, but I anticipate that that will change.  I am prepared for more Food blogs.  I love new Food, I love new recipes, I love trying new Food.  One of my favorite things about travelling?  Yup, Food.  I am lucky I am not morbidly obese, such is my love for food.  I could also probably make up a whole list of “FFoods to complete this blog if I wanted to!!  (French Fries, Five Guys, Frank’s Gourmet Grille, Frankfurters, Fruit, Feta, Filet mignon, French toast, Fudge)

2.  FICTION  I LOVE Fiction (really, reading in general).  For those that read my 100 things, you know this already.  You also know that my computer is sucking my life energy and it has been affecting how much I read.  But I still love to get lost in a good book.

3.  FACEBOOK  I LOVE Facebook.  There.  I said it.  When I first started, I didn’t really get it.  I don’t know when that changed, but I am at the point now when I check Facebook before I check my email.  

4.  FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS  I LOVE FNL.  It is one of the best, if not THE best show on TV.  I had the pleasure of seeing the 3rd season on DirecTV already, but I am sad because now I have to wait until who knows when to (hopefully!!) see the 4th season.  I will be devastated if this show gets cancelled.

5. FUNNIEST HOME VIDEOS  I LOVE Funniest Home Videos.  My husband and I watch it pretty regularly.  We most enjoy people Falling (another F).  I am a PT, I probably shouldn’t find humor in people injuring themselves.  But I do.  And it keeps me in business…so…win/win.

(F is hard….)

(also, my first Five things involve either sitting or eating…it is REALLY a wonder that I am not morbidly obese)

6.  FIREWORKS  I LOVE Fireworks.  Really, really LOVE Fireworks.  The problem with a lot of fireworks are the crowds.  I don’t love crowds that much.  I don’t tend to go to the Grucci Brothers Fireworks in New London because I don’t love battling the crowds.  And the crowds and/or people you are with can make or break a good Fireworks experience.  My top favorite Fireworks?  Sitting on the beach in Naples, FL on July 4th, 2008 with my husband on our honeymoon.  Oddly, there were a lot of people there, but being on the beach, watching the sun set….all of it made for some really great Fireworks.  My runner-up Fireworks?  Gardner’s Lake Fireworks.  My in-laws live right on the Lake.  Bob (as in Furniture Bob) put on a great show and we were surrounded by great people.  And we were comfy.  And probably drunk, which helps.  Unfortunately, I don’t think he is doing the Fireworks anymore…so that is just a good memory now!

7.  FRIENDS  I LOVE Friends (specifically MY Friends).  My Friends are great people.  I love them.  They make me laugh and keep me grounded.  I couldn’t get through a week without my them.  

8.  FELINES  I LOVE Felines.  Well, I don’t usually call them that, but for the sake of the F’s…  I am an animal lover, but if I had to pick, I would say I am a Feline person.  I have always had a Feline, except when I was in campus housing in college.  I have always been a one-Feline family.  I sometimes wish I was a two-Feline family.  I wonder if my Feline, Tiki, wouldn’t be such a wench if she had a buddy to keep her in check.  Also, in the future, I am only going to be male Feline person.  This is my first female Feline, and she is definitely not the loving Feline I am familiar with.  I think the males are better lap cats.  Or lap Felines.   

9.  FLYING  I LOVE Flying.  I really love it all, even check-in.  I like the waiting for your plane, it just builds up the anticipation (I don’t, however, love waiting for a delay, or waiting on the runway for 2 hours.  Just to clarify.).  For me, anytime I have Flown, good times have followed.  It is classical conditioning.  Flying=Good Times.  My heart rate spikes a little at take off.  I react the same way I did when I was a kid when I am in the window seat (I am actually disappointed if I don’t have a window seat).  I think I would actually like to be on a plane right now!

10.  FUTURE  I LOVE the Future.  The idea of what is to come gets me very excited.  I cannot wait to see how my life will unfold.  There are a lot of possibilities and opportunities and I am so excited for all of them!!
