Well, I was asking over on facebook about what I should write for my 100th post. This is a pretty big deal for me! I’ve never done 100 of anything before, I don’t think.
I decided that this should be a post of me sharing some of my favorite things. Some of these things are ‘current’ favorite things, they might be different next year, next month or next week. Some of them are going to be enduring favorite things, I’ve liked them for years, maybe even decades.
Since I’m a writer, I think I’ll start with books.
My two favorite children’s books. I loved them as a kid and they still tickle me as an adult.
|I loved reading this book to my son and I can’t wait to see my daughter’s reaction to lovable, silly old Grover.|
My favorite grown up books.
My favorite movies:
These next couple might be a surprise to anybody who doesn’t know me very well.
|Isn’t this every girls favorite movie? I think this is what drove my love of pirates.
Who wants to be a princess? I want to be a pirate!
My favorite music:
|I’ve tried to deny it but I can’t. I write to Celtic Thunder, almost exclusively. This is the first year I missed the concert and I’m really sorry I did. They’ve gone through some changes lately but they’re still my lads and I love them.|
Favorite television shows:
Now, I own a television but it hasn’t been turned on in a little over 3 months. I just don’t watch much television. I love boxed sets and Netflix so I can just put something on and do something else. These are all television shows I’ve loved and will watch over and over.
|While I will freely admit that David Tennant is my favorite Doctor, I do like all the others. I hold with Terry Pratchett’s view on it, as well. Doctor Who is not Science Fiction, it’s fantasy with sci-fi trappings.|
|Star Trek: Deep Space Nine is probably one of the least appreciated of the Star Trek series and also my favorite. I will freely admit that I love a little politics and religion with my science fiction and this series did it really well.|
|Have you tried turning it off and on again? The IT Crowd is brilliant and funny and I love Roy.|
|I grew up watching Red Dwarf and I don’t say ‘smeg’ enough. There’s really not much of a way of explaining why I love it. If you’ve seen it and liked it, you’ll understand. If you haven’t? Why not?!? Go watch it, ya smeghead!|
|I’ve read the books, I’ve watched the show. This is one show that makes you happy to root for a bad guy because there are worse guys out there, and he knows where they are.|
|Does anybody not love this show? I watch it with my son, the budding nerd, and explain all the science jokes to him.|
Aaaand, yeah, I’m gonna stop there. I could keep going but really? This is enough. I’m pretty sure my true colors have shown through and my status as a geek, at the very least, has been justified. What are some of your favorite things? Have any questions to ask me? Leave a comment and let me know!
