brought to you by the letter M

Gina (among others) did this amazing post where you're given a letter and you have to pick your top ten favorite things that start with that letter. I was given:

1. Markers- specifically permanent ones. especially Sharpie Permanent Markers with Extra Fine Point

2. Music - I love to make mix cds. I will make them for any and all occasions. I once made one entitled "the best mix ever" and it seriously was. Everyone agreed.

3 Movies - either at home or at the theater. I like to cuddle if it's at home and sneak in contraband candy (and once a Qdoba burrito) if it's at the theater.

4. Make up - especially MAC. I can't get enough of it. I could wear a new eyeshadow every day for at least a couple months and never wear duplicates.

5. Matrix hair products- Especially the Biolage Hydratherapie line. It smells so good!

6. Magenta - or any color pink for that matter

7. Mittens- They are cute. Enough said

8. Making things - I like to think I'm crafty. However, the things I make always turn out diffrerently than I want them too. This would be the main reason why I shop Etsy.

9. Museums - Yeah, I'm a nerd. Some of my favorites include: Anne Hathaway's cottage (The one who married Shakespeare, not actress), well, everything in that town (Stratford Upon Avon), Tower of London, etc. Pretty much every museum I visited in England. Oh, and I like the Chicago Field Museum. Don't even get me started on my love for castles...

10. Marlboro Menthol Lights

Let me just say, this was a lot harder than I thought it would be. It was fun & amusing though. Comment if you're interested in doing it and I'll assign you a letter!

I did this a while ago...and you're right, it's harder than it looks!

I snuck sushi into the movies once.

Gina said...

Good job! I am obsessed with extra fine tip Sharpies. I have at least 2 of every color. I think you should tell us what was on your 'best mix ever' CD.

Sneaking a burrito into the movies...that is hilarious!! I once brought in a mini tub of haagen dazs dulce de leche frozen yogurt...and I ate the whole thing!

Even if Biolage didn't work very well, I still think that I would use it because it smells so go. Yep, my priorities are in order!

I got assigned a letter by someone else, but I don't like it. Can I cheat and request a letter from you instead? Pick a really good one (not G!). :)
