My Vox neighbor Christa posted a very fun meme and I decided to join in. I commented on her post (she had the letter D) and she gave me my own letter. I have to post ten things I love that start with the letter she gave me, C. Very fun!
If you’d like to play along too, leave a comment on this post and I’ll give you a letter too!
Cupcakes – cupcakes are the best dessert ever, hands down. I love all sorts but am particularly partial to chocolate cake with pink vanilla buttercream frosting from Magnolia’s. When I make them I prefer strawberry cake with white buttercream frosting.
(I will try to make the rest of my Cs not about food – though I could go on with cookies, cheese, cake, chips, chili, chicken fingers, etc.)
Stephen Colbert – Stephen Colbert is spectacular.
Billy Collins – I love Billy Collins, he makes poetry seem so easy, but in reality he’s a master.
Being Cozy – I strive to be Cozy at all times, which I think is part of the reason why summer is my least favorite season. I like hot coffee, blankets, pillows, and stacks of books. Preferably rain beating down on the windows. A fireplace would be ideal, but I’ll make due with the heat being on in general. It’s very hard to achieve Coziness in the summer. My favorite stores and restaurants all have cozy atmospheres. I dislike modern, minimal designs because they’re not Cozy.
Christmas – Christmas is my favorite holiday, probably because of how much I like being Cozy. Christmas is definitely the Coziest holiday.
Coffee – I said I would try to make the rest not about food, but Coffee is a necessity. Few things make me as consistently happy every single day.
John Cusack – Many of my favorite movies are John Cusack’s 80s movies. Particularly The Sure Thing and Better Off Dead. Other favorites include High Fidelity and Grosse Pointe Blank.
Candles – I love having candles lit in the evening. It makes things….you guessed it – cozy.
My Computers – I currently use two computers at home. My iMac is about a year and a half old, and my Powerbook is over 5 years old, but still working great. My iMac is named David Letterman and my Powerbook is named Taco Sam.
Cough Drops – I’m currently pretty sick, and the only thing keeping my coughing spasams under control is cough drops. So they get a bump up from obscurity into my top ten C things.
