Tagged!

Karin over @ HennHouse tagged me in a fun little blog game of sorts! I had to read through all the rules so I understood...I am still learning all of this good blog stuff, of course :) I had to do it. It was a moral imperative!

This fun get-to-know-me is all about our Top 6 Favorite Unimportant Things. I took a gander through quite a few Top 6 lists and I have to say -- you all have some fantastic favorite things!

Without further ado, here's my Top 6 List of Favorite Unimportant Things:

1. Movie quotes. Oh. Oh yes. I have something of a problem when it comes to quoting movies. And television shows and sometimes song lyrics. Especially the funny ones. My poor sister loathes the "What Movie Is That From" game! It's all Mom's fault. She started it with the lyrics and it slowly evolved into a beast of a movie quoting monster.

2. Bed & Bath Section at Any Store. Now this is one that makes D. squirm and want to run the other direction. To see shelves chock full o' fluffy, clean, colorful towels, sheets, pillows and blankets...ah, it's bliss! I almost always find myself in the Bed & Bath section, even when I went to the store for shoe polish or a gallon of milk.

3. The water. There's something about growing up near water that somehow binds your soul to it, like the very essence of you is steeped in that water. I haven't lived near Lake Erie in fifteen years but it will always be home. I miss the water every day. My Mom fills my head full of images of early 20th century 1-bedroom cottages near the (read: any) lake. We're simpatico.

4. Shoes. Heaven help me, I have a shoe problem. Though I've grown better and reigned in the worst of it, I could spend all day trying on shoes. Especially the really crazy expensive ones. I like to pretend I'd have somewhere to wear them. It's a safe bet they would be wasted in Harrison's :)

5. Pets. All pets. All the time. All of them. Big and little, but especially the fuzzy, cuddly ones.

6. Ice Cream. Being that lactose and I don't see eye-to-eye all the time, this one can get tricky, though my denial usually helps me get through the worst of it :)

Now, here's my perfect date. Spent the day at the beach, put on a new pair of shoes, went to see a movie, then to the pet store to visit all the little guys, then ice creams on the way home. That's it in a nutshell. What can I say, I'm a simple girl!

Here are the "official" rules: Mention the person who tagged you, list your six unimportant favorite things, and then tag six other bloggers.
HOWEVER, even if you're not on this linked list, I would still love (LOOOOOVE) to know what your unimportant favorite things are. In a comment. On your blog. Wherever. (ditto, Karin) Please!

I am not a blogger, I am a blog appreciator and regular reader. Here are 6 of my favorite unimportant things:

1.) the smell of freshly grated coffee in the aisle at the grocer's, most especially hazelnut, I stop and savor it every single time

2.) the smell of a summer storm brewing, just before it starts to rain, the feel of the fresh cooler breezes

3.) the sound of a child's laughter, truly happiness at it's purest form

4.) buying or receiving a brand new address book, to start over fresh and clean and crisp and wonderful(and more organized!)

5.) an unexpected invitation to visit a friend's home, for whatever may be the reason

6.) one-of-a-kind vintage bookstores, anywhere

Those are FANTASTIC! I should've thought harder, I think. Vintage bookstores make me giddy, pure and simple. I love old books, especially with gilt on the spine and cover. I'll have to take a photo of my favorite book and post it soon!
