Y is for yarn…
During this challenge I’ve done a post of random facts about me and my life, and a post about things I do not like, I figured it was probably a good idea to also include a post about a few of my favorite things. (You’re all singing the song now right along with me, aren’t you…)
Yarn, especially yarn in piles, or baskets, or on shelves in yarn stores, is one of my favorite things. I like the way it smells, and how it feels as I work with it pulling and pushing with needles or hooks to create something new. I like the way it looks, from different textures, to different colors… I have a yarn buying problem. I’d like to say I’m working on it, but I’m not, and I probably won’t.
I love baseball. The San Francisco Giants are my team, and I love watching them, but I also enjoy the game in general.
Speaking of SF, if I could live anywhere without having to worry about money, it would be there.
My birthday week is one of my favorite times of year. It’s pretty much the only time I can get away with eating cake multiple times a day for several days in a row without being chastised or called pathetic. Cake? Clearly also one of my favorites. I’m not that particular about the kind. As long as it’s moist and edible, I’m sold.
I often paint my fingernails black. It’s my favorite color. Well, it and purple and grey. They are happy colors. Colors that make me feel warm and safe.
Okay, now for a quick and dirty run down of a few more favorites…
Ben and Jerry’s: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
Coffee: Vanilla Latte (I’m kinda boring)
Beer: Hefeweizen or Blue Moon or my friend Gordon’s homebrew
Fast Food: Tacos!
Place for drinks (nonalcoholic): Sonic
Place to read: Curled up in bed.
Place to write: Curled up in bed.
I have a pair of little, gold, hoop earrings that my mom got me when I was a lot younger than I am now. I wear them all the time and they are pretty much my favorite jewelry.
My first car was a 1990 Subaru Legacy wagon. Nothing will ever beat that car in my eyes. Nothing.
When I think about the place I would like to be on any given day, it is with my friends. I don’t really care where we are, I just like being around them.
Camping, fishing, hiking, and reading in the sun are my favorite outdoor activities.
Finally, I’m a fan of technology and electronics. For instance, I love my android phone and I love that there is an app that stores my Starbucks card and so I can pay with my phone. It’s so awesome!
Grandma Irene loved that little red Subaru too.
