Letter meme

moth1 gave me the letter A. Now you comment and I’ll give you a letter and then you have to list ten things you love that begin with that letter.

  1. Avocados - one of my favourite things to put in a salad, probably not the healthiest, but definitely one of the tastiest. They are really good with mayonnaise and prawns too.
  2. Africa - I've only spent a couple of weeks in Africa but would love to spend longer, I want to go to Egypt and Kenya, lots of other countries too.
  3. Art - I like looking at art, I like painting too.
  4. Angela - My best friend from school days, back living round the corner again, after years of being apart.
  5. St Andrews Anglican Church - My first church and my current church, my faith is inportant to me, so my church is too. It's not important that it is Anglican, I just thought I'd mention that because I'm doing "a"s!!
  6. Activity - I really like to be busy, the busier the better!
  7. Arthurian Legend - I have always been fascinated by legends about Arthur, I'm also quite interested in Aztec mythology!
  8. Air Travel - I love to travel, any form of transport is fine with me, but planes take you further faster than anything else.
  9. Algebra - Believe it or not I really enjoy algebra, most kinds of maths actually!!
  10. Anaheim - I've been there many times, and every trip to Disneyland is special, I'll never tire of it!!!

See, here's the thing. I have just read your list and enjoyed doing so BUT if I just sneak off and not comment for fear you will give me a letter and then that will be just one more thing that I may yet fail to do.. well, that's not very nice, is it? However, that is the truth. If the road to Heaven was paved with good intentions, I would have an 8 lane highway all to myself, maybe more. So, give me a letter and I will endeavour to do it, but I know I am very, very bad at getting back to these things. :)

I thought Avocados are pretty good for you. Isn't the fat good fat?

Avocados aren't that bad for you, just not as good as lettuce , tomato etc!!

And now a letter for you, how about "C"!

C... Hmmmm Can't think of a single thing off the top of my head. Cauliflower, which I have no strong feeling for at all. See? This is when it gets difficult. Now I have to think about it. Back later.

How about chocolate, it might be a more appetising start than cauliflower!

10 things
So, is it just any 10 things beginning with that letter or was it 10 specific subject headings? If you tell me what I'm supposed to do with it then I'll have a letter please.

Re: 10 things
What's an easy letter? Well I won't give you X,Q or Z! How about "M", I can think of things for that!

Re: 10 things
Mmmmm...
The only surprising one there for me is Milan Cathedral, have you been there or there some other reason it's on your list?

Re: 10 things
Milan - Been there.

Richard and I did a tour of Europe, visiting many cities - this was the tour that included seeing the Oberammagau passion play and staying on the shores of Lake Maggiore. The visit to Milan Cathedral was combined with a trip to the painting of the Last Supper. From memory I know we visited the following places, but can't recall the order:

London, Dover, Calais, Paris, Geneva, Heidelberg, Oberammagau, Lake Maggiore, Milan, Cruise on the Rhine, Belgium. Calais, London.

I will definitely plan to visit the Oberammagau passion play again, and some of the medievel towns in Germany, which I totally adored.

Re: 10 things
I just did a quick tour of Germany with some friends and there are lots of pics of mediaeval towns on my lj - not this one, my moth2fic lj which is for writing, not just fiction, and therefore houses my account of the trip. You can justlook for the posts on Germany and ignore everything else!

Re: 10 things
Thanks for pointing me in the direction of your photos. They really made me realise that I need to go back over to mainland Europe soon. Some lovely places to visit again.

Re: 10 things
I'd already had a look at all the photos there, but hadn't got round to commenting, it looks like you had a lovely time. Being close to mainland Europe is one of the real benefits of being back in the UK!

Re: 10 things
It's all so incredibly pretty and incredibly old. It's as if you're going straight from York to Chester to Bath to...and yes, obviously I know they have industry too (see the account of driving through the Ruhr) but they don't have ribbon development and they do make an effort to hide their industrial estates. We're intending to move to mainland Europe in the next few years. That will be even better.

Re: 10 things
That sounds as if it would have been a wonderful trip. I would like to visit Oberammagau too!

Re: 10 things
Just a few thoughts...

2. Who are these male teasers of which you speak

4. That would be "mistletoe", complete with E at the end?

7. So, no change there.

Re: 10 things
I put the e at the end of mistletoe originally, but didn't think it looked right.

There is no comparison between male teasers and maltesers. Even if in America they are called chocolate covered malt balls.

Looking forward to hear how things went in Birmingham. See you soon.

See, that's the thing. I have always been a vegetable girl. Cucumber. That begins with C Now I like cucumber. Chocolate is okay but I don't eat that much and it wouldn't be something about which I would have though. Weeks can go by without me eating it. See, another thing. Much as I like it at times, I don't LOVE it, though from time to time I have been heard to say, "I'd love a bit of chocolate", so perhaps I am not so weird.

I'm not sure whether chocolate would be on my list either, but I think it would for most people! Both coffee and cheese would be higher on my list!!!
