MSN did a "Top 10 cupcakes" list nationwide, and I'm working on trying all of them...have you seen it? There's even a whole cupcake blogosphere!

rockinrobin 04-25-2008 04:46 PM

What is your favorite....

1. Color? To wear - STILL black, I just can't help it. For other stuff, probably green.

2. Season? (and why) A toughie. I love spring and fall. Both are not too hot and not too cold. I used to hate the spring because it meant that summer was soon near. NOT a good season for a 287lb 5 foot woman, ;). I guess, I'll have to go with spring. Seeing those trees and flowers bloom are fabulous. And knowing that the summer is coming up, not the winter is great.

3. Animal? Sorry folks, I am just not an animal lover.

4. Place to shop? Macy's & Target (not necessarily for clothing)

5. Place you've visited/traveled to? Unfortunately, I haven't traveled much. Of the few places I"ve been - probably Bermuda.

6. Food? (hmm...pick at least a couple ) We really should have old and new choices here. I'm sure the answers would vary greatly. In the old days, it was ice cream. I still love it. I eat it so rarely that I don't even consider it a top pick anymore. Also in the old days - pasta, rice, cheesecake, chocolate pudding (and you wonder why I was so heavy ;))Nowadays - I do love chicken breasts and all the yummy things I make with them. Cauliflower, green beans, brussel sprouts, asparagus, salads, Fat free/sugar free yogurt. Gosh, those sound real dorky, don't they?

7. Book? Jeffrey Archer's Kane & Abel.

8. Way to relax and unwind after a hard day? A hot cup of tea and a magazine. Or that cup of tea and watching my next choice -

9. TV channel? HGTV - Home & Garden TV, that is.

10. Movie? (pick three) Shawshank Redemption, Forrest Gump -
I'm not a huge movie fan. 3 is a stretch. If pressed, maybe Grease would be my 3rd

11. Actors? I think George Clooney is really, really cute. I'm not much into movies and TV though.

12. Actresses? No one I can think of.

13. Type of music? I'm also all over the place here. I adore music. I love the old rock & roll classics and pop. I can listen to classical, jazz, show tunes, you name it.

14. Sport to play or watch? NFL Football

15. Time of day? I love the early morning. I'm an early bird and I get a lot accomplished then. I also enjoy the evenings, when I'm done with work.
