Tere Kirkland at The Lesser Key tagged me. According to the rules, all I have to do is complete each sentence and tag three people. So here goes:

I like new office supplies--pens, pencils, clean paper, notebooks. :)
I like Dove chocolate with almonds. Yummy!
I like hardcover books with pretty covers.
I like taking things apart to see how they work.
I like learning new things.
I like drawing, painting, scrapbooking, writing--anything creative.
I like sleeping in.
I like revising. Wish I was doing that right now instead of drafting.
I like when a scene falls perfectly into place after I've been struggling with it for days.
I like my characters--probably too much.
I like giving and receiving critiques. Feedback is always awesome!
•I like free blog posts like this one. :) Thanks, Tere!

I love the feeling of a shiny, new idea.

Today was not very productive. (Tuesday)

I hate daylight savings time. Seriously, whose crack-smokin' idea was this? I feel like I've been living with a borrowed hour since we moved here and then I was forced to pay it back against my will. And I paid it in sleep. Score one for Arizona. Best reaction from my daughter: "When you wake us up in the morning, what time will it be in the real world?" :)
I hate peanut butter candy, especially Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. I know this makes me a freak, but I can't stand the taste or the texture. Not really a big fan of peanut butter all around.
I hate popping open those biscuit tubes. Makes me all anxious.
I hate being sick.
I hate doing dishes.
I hate the lack of good Mexican food restaurants in Idaho.
I hate buying something and finding out I could've gotten it somewhere else for less money. Even if it's only a few bucks difference.
I hate that we barely got any rain in AZ in 2009, but as soon as I moved away, it started raining like crazy. It rained for three days straight in January and I missed it. :(

I (secretly) like being alone. It's the only time I can think. :)

I love thunderstorms.

I tag:

Rebecca Knight
Elizabeth Mueller
Susan Fields

Don't forget about The Beta Club tomorrow. Mine's going up for shredding. :)


  1. I hate daylight savings time as well. And those biscuit tubes are nerve wracking to pop open. I never do it right and all the dough bubbles out everywhere. Great answers.

  2. I was tagged too:) I secretly like being alone as well. I think I will post mine on Friday:) I will be at the Beta Club tomorrow--can't wait to read it!

  3. Apparently we have a lot in common. Love hardcover books with pretty covers. Revising. Scenes that fall in place. I have a crush on my male love interests. Love critiques. Love quiet time to think.

    With you on the discovering something cheaper elsewhere part, daylight savings, and the exploding biscuit tubes. Seriously, do they have to pop?

  4. I agree with this time change business - I just want them to pick one and leave it. Every time it changes I suffer from jet lag for days. However, I absolutely love Reeses Peanut Butter Cups - (especially if they have been kept in the freezer before eating).

  5. You don't like Reeses Peanut Butter Cups? There is something seriously wrong with you. I'm sorry, but that's blasphemy. :)

    Anyway, I agree with you on the daylight savings thing.

  6. i'm with you on the office supplies, hardcover books, sleeping in, and having a scene fall into place. and i also hate daylight savings time and i don't even have to live with it, except to remember when to call my friends in the midwest. wish i could send some Mexican food your way.

  7. Aubrie: Making biscuits shouldn't be so stressful! ;) Good to know I'm not the only one with biscuit tube issues. :)

    Eric: Blasphemy? Really? You'd probably get along very well with my husband. He thinks I'm a freak too. :)

  8. Who knew we were so alike? I could have written EVERYTHING on this list, except the two about peanut butter and Arizona rain. :-)

  9. The time change is hard, and what's with being on standard time for a paltry three months anyway???? Loved your list. It was fun to learn more about you. If you have any peanut butter cups you don't want, send them my way!

  10. Ah, it's always the food I miss when I'm away from home. No good Mexican food? That sucks! And Eric beat me to it, lol. I can't believe you don't like Peanut Butter Cups! I don't have much of a sweet tooth--I'd rather have a fancy cheese plate than chocolate any day--but Reece's are probably my favorite packaged candy. What's your preferred junk food? ;)

    And I've had dark circles under my eyes since Saturday. I hate Spring Forward!

  11. Oh, I'm soooo with you on Daylight Savings Time. I haven't been able to get up on time this whole week. It's awful.

  12. Fun meme.

    Although this Daylight Savings Time hasn't been too bad. The Pea has been sleeping in until 8 or 8:30, and I just haven't worked up the nerve/desire to shift him back.

  13. Beautifully creative answers! Daylight whatever-time never disturbs my clock - I always wake before dawn, not intentionally, yet, peversely, I love the stillness and savour the solitude of my unGodly rising (not so much tho' as the day wears on..)!

  14. I love your daughter's concept of the time change. I always feel like that--like I'm in some alternate reality.

  15. How fun! Thanks for thinking of me--I can't wait to fill in the blanks! BTW--I so don't like the time change, either. It's been a rough change for us, too. :(
