Kate Takes 5’s Listography theme this week is “Top 5 Random Things I Like.” I don’t know why I found this list hard to write. Surely I would know what I like more than anyone? This is what I came up with, in no particular order.
Although perfume ads on TV are clearly being aimed more and more towards total wankers, I still love it and wear it every day. My husband reckons it gives him a headache but it’s not like I marinate in it.
Oh, and if a beautiful scent is in an ugly bottle, it’s no longer beautiful.
White fairy lights
Excuse my boasting but – ahem – ours have eight settings. This is essential because you absolutely need to choose between so many variations in flashing speeds and patterns. Naturally.
I know, there’s nothing random about this. But when I see someone quickly shove chocolate into their mouths, I feel like yelling, “Noooooooooo!!” and doing that Superman thing when he reverses time by spinning around the earth in the wrong direction. They’re not getting the best of that bit of chocolate. You have to admire it first, then you absolutely must smell it. Come on party people.
Old tea cups and saucers
These appeal to my inner (and not-so-inner) nanna. Extra points if they also have the matching plate. Apparently these sets of 3 are called “crazy sets” because they certainly are CRAAAAAZY!!
There’s Monopoly, which brings out the worst in everyone. That’s why my husband calls it Cheats, Liars & Thieves. I also love Chess and Scrabble, although I am rubbish at them. I start every game completely over-confident, saying things like “prepare to lose, Loser!” I end up being thrashed every time – even by people who don’t know how to play. Here is a good example of talent and enthusiasm not balancing.
How about you?
This November, I’m writing one post every day as part of NaBloPoMo.
