One-Word Meme

Beth at Cup of Coffey tagged me with this light as a feather meme. It is a One Word Meme. I'm just going to be stream of consciousness about it and it could be a one word response to the word or a long-winded stream of nonsense that you really don't want to read about anyway. Hopefully, it will be brief.

Clothes: Right now turleneck, warm sweater, pj pants and fuzzy socks.

Furniture: Having combined one and one-half households, I have too much furniture I want to get rid of. The bane of my existence is an antique sofa with these broken straps that hold the forest green , velvet upholstered cushions. An uglier and more useless piece of furniture is hard to imagine. No one in the family wants it. No one outside the family will want it...you get the picture.

Sweet: I only get them once a year or so but they're the most incredible chocolates from Switzerland that W.P. brings back on his trips there. It is the nirvana of chocolate. If you want a peek, look under Guilty Pleasures on my sidebar.

City: London

Drink: white wine

Music: lots

T.V. Series: Used to be Six Feet Under and I haven't found a suitable substitute since. Nip/Tuck was once a guilty pleasure but started to suck when Christian and Shawn moved from Miami to LA. Stupid, offensive, awful show with some surprisingly funny dark humor thrown in.

Workout: to be avoided at all costs

Pastries: not to be avoided at all costs but a once-a-month thing for sure. Cheese danish from the local bakery downtown. The baker is an adorable woman who looks like a Botero painting.

Coffee: always black and always hot. I don't care at all for iced coffee and milk makes me ill even to think about. Shudder.

I'm not going to tag anyone else, but do play along if you want to and let me know!

  3. Oh, Beth, luv...it didn't used to be, once! But at 49, all the women in my family have to reduce their pastry intake considerably in middle age! We'd be simply beastly if we ate pastries almost every day as we once did in youth!

    At one time I was a lot less sophisticated : in my 20's (when I weighed 130 lbs (thin for my frame) I worked at a building located right off a major shopping strip. I ate a chocolate glazed donut almost every day at Mr. Donut. Never gained an ounce. Siiiiiiigh

  5. homeyra: hehhehe...ya do, huh?

    When the exercise is non-existent, one finds it necessary to cut back on one's pastry intake. (snicker)

  6. Black coffee: to be avoided at all costs (except, perhaps, as a mouth antiseptic). Unless one is lactose intolerant LIFE IS TOO SHORT to not put cream in your coffee (and if one IS lactose intolerant . . . non-dairy creamer is a LOT better than it used to be! ;-p)

    Sweetener I can go either way on, depending on the quality of the coffee...

    Work-Out: difficult to start up, easy to keep at. Essential, though, when one is on the butch/FTM spectrum is I am. PumpIron-o, ergo sum. Sumthin' like dat... ;-)
