The antidote to rantidote. Commence random adoration here.

Match of the Day on Sunday mornings. What a brilliant idea. No-one watches TV on sunday morning anyway, so put a re-run of Match of the Day on. Allows me to actually follow Reading this season. I usually fall asleep infront of the Saturday evening broadcast.

I love Christmas teas... Gingersnappish, Eggnogg'n, Nutcracker Sweet. I look forward to their coming onto the shelves like I look for the appearance of Cadbury Eggs at Easter.

I love the color of Kraft mac n cheese. If flowers grew to look like mac n cheese, I'd plant them all around my house.

I love coloring with crayons. I carry a box in my purse, so I can scribble on placemats at diners.

I love Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches. They're awesome.

I'm iffy about the fact that everything that I love is in someway related to food.

Skinny Cows rule! Especially the peanut butter chocolate and the mint sandwiches.

I love rainbow sprinkles - they make me happy to see them, and I love their texture within ice cream.

I love the Iggy Pop with the Teddybears song, Punkrocker - it makes me laugh.

Nick I've always wanted a white duck myself! I've never had a duck, let a lone really spent a lot of time with them necessarily, but I really like those white ducks [Smile]

I love the Niagara Mohawk building. Thanks to Mapleleaf's pretty pictures for reminding me. There a long, skinny rectangular lights around the top of the building that are lit according to the season or the holiday. I just love looking at that building.

I love Barbies... houses, furniture, cars, anything that can fit in Barbie's (or an 11 1/2 inch doll's) world.

I love almost anything miniature... maybe related to above... dollhouses too.

I love kid sized stuff, kitchens, playsets, etc.

I love Sesame Street.

I love cats. I love babies.

Not sure if all of these are for no reason.

I see your ducks, and raise you...
platypi! Like a duck and a beaver all in one!

I like food shaped magnets and toys; I have a friction driven sushi of which I am quite found.

I like Pez dispensers, especially odd ones.

I like socks with animals on them. (And I suppose animals with socks on them, as well.)

I like words that hardly anyone ever uses.

I like the tiny marshmallows in hot chocolate packets.

I like art supplies, including silly ones like glitter glue that I never have an excuse to use.

I like miniture versions of things.

I love driving. I especially love driving in my big ol' truck.

I love snow even though I can't go sledding or skiing anymore.

I love wearing jackets or even fleece hoodies. I just love it- no idea why. If I could wear my Levi's denim jacket every day, I'd be happy.

I love boots. Hiking boots, work boots, Doc Marten's, cowboy boots, high-heeled trashy/sexy boots. I'd rather be in any kind of boots than sneakers or sandals.

I love dogs. Big, small, medium. Yappy, woofy, growly, whiny. All dogs. Wolves too.

Frogs. Snakes. Lizards. Birds. One of my favorite things about Australia was the birds.

I love Australia. [Big Grin] And, all things Australian (I have since high school).

I love Queen, Bowling for Soup, and guitar solos.

I could go on, but that's a good start. [Smile]

I love Gilbert and Sullivan (not Gilbert O'Sullivan).

I love the smell of a crisp winter's day.

I love Oktoberfest style beer.

I love Dunkin' Donuts coffee. For that matter, I love donuts.

I too love things in miniature.

I love meerkats, and yet I'm not big into nature.

I love quiet parts of libraries hardly anyone goes into, and books rarely touched. I love old newspapers and magazines, especially the ads (Listerine will save you from a lifetime of misery and loneliness, Wrigley's will prevent wrinkles, and you can use Swan to clean [i]anything[i]--Swan the baby! Swan the dishes! Swan the clothes! It's SWANDERFUL!).

I love the teeny tiny wooden angels on my teeny tiny Christmas tree, all doing such atypically angelic things as snowboarding and playing the cymbals.

I love hot teas of all kinds, days with any sort of precipitation, and grading term papers.

I love roller ball pens, construction paper, and clear glossy tape.

I love a bedroom cold enough to get all chilled as I am getting ready for bed, but only if there is a pile of warm quilts under which to snuggle.

*That* is heaven to me.

Oh, and office supplies, particularly Pilot's G2 0.5 mm black gel pen. And small bulldog clips. But never paperclips, unless they are the vinyl-covered ones. Not that I have given it much thought.
