A fun entry [Monday, May. 16, 2005, 2:34 pm]

Apparently I've been "tagged" by MyOwnJourney. So I have to list my ten favorite things and then tag some more people. Well, here goes...

1. God, of course. It would be kinda hard to exist without Him.
2. Family and friends. I don't have to be an extrovert to appreciate the people in my life.
3. School. Yes, I actually like going to college, even though the curriculum is occasionally biased towards the world.
4. The internet. Had to put that on here somewhere, didn't I?
5. My job. Great people, minimal customer interaction, and money too.
6. Photography. Love it.
7. Food. Who doesn't like food?
8. Old movies/shows. They keep me entertained without teaching me any of this modern crap that I don't need to be bombarded with.
9. Books. There are some things technology just can't replace.
10. My car. I suppose this should go on here somewhere, considering how useful it is to me.

And now I get to tag 4 people. Hmmmm. How about... Not-Ruthless, Snoopy-9487, Eowynne, and Hamiltonian. Now you guys get to put a top-ten list on your own diary and tag 4 more people. How fun.

For the record: this, my friends, is a whoopie pie:

Although the ones I make have a bit more filling in them. And I make them in different sizes - some are about the diameter of an orange or something - others are even wider than a CD. One of these days I'll try to get up a photo of one that I've actually made.

Anyway, I thought I'd put up some humorous definitions today - although some of them are actually quite true. And believe it or not, I actually got these out of a BOOK rather than the internet. Amazing.
