Countdown Meme

I'm feeling flaky this week, so I'm going to fill out and post a meme instead of a real live blog post. I Googled and found a fun one at Loaded Gun Theory. (No, I don't understand the blog title, either.) It took some liberties with the list items. Here goes...

10 FAVORITES
  1. Color: Turquoise (depends on the day, though)
  2. Ice Cream: Ben & Jerry's White Russian (but, since that's been retired, I'll also say Dulce de Leche)
  3. Donut: Maple Glazed (I spent formative years in Canada, where everything is maple flavored)
  4. Pizza: Blackjack (a Colorado chain with the best thin crust ever)
  5. Beverage: Sprite Zero (it's a toss-up between that and a Caramel Frappuccino)
  6. Movie: (how do I choose just one??? okay...) Drive Me Crazy by Melissa Joan Hart and Adrian Grenier
  7. TV Show: Psych (love, love, love, love, LOVE!)
  8. Adult Book: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (hands down)
  9. Teen Book: Fly on the Wall by E. Lockhart (this is my fave now, but my fave when I was a teen was probably Congo by Michael Crichton)
  10. Children's Book: From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E. L. Konigsburg

  5. Have you ever been on TV? No, not that I know of.
  6. Have you ever kissed someone you didn't know? Um, way No Comment.

  3. Oh, who am I kidding. I tell everything to Everyone!

2 CHOICES
  1. Black or White? (depends on the context) Black for clothes, White for furniture
  2. Hot or Cold? Cold (you can always layer on more clothes)

1 THING YOU WANT TO DO?
  1. Visit Every Continent (there are so many things I want to do--several involving the New York Times bestsellers list--but this is one I can actually control)

Whew, that was easy. (Okay, I lied. It wasn't easy.) Now it's your turn. Feel free to consider yourself tagged or, if you're feeling too lazy to do the whole meme, then just leave a few tidbits in the comments.

Hugs,
TLC

Great fun, TLC! And a couple quick comments...I love maple, too, so maybe I lived in Canada in another life.

And the commenting about not kissing someone you didn't know...hmmm...as the Buzz Girl's resident expert on kissing, I must ask if you ever played blindfolded kissing games as a teen???

(Taking the "just answer the question" approach...) No, I never played blindfolded kissing games as a teen. =)
