For the love of M
Christina did a post about 10 things she loved with the letter K, which apparently she had been challenged to do by Amy. When I commented, Christina gave me the letter M. ROCK ON LETTER M! There are so many things i love that start with the letter M that i actually had to combine things and cut things out to get down to 10. Here they are in no particular order: Mel, Mike, Matthew, Matt and Mom - i have been blessed with an abundance of people to love whose monikers start with M and i could never choose just one of them Mountains - i love, love, love mountains; i love the silence and peace that i find on mountaintops Margaritas - rocks and salt, of course; i make a killer margarita that has a touch of sweet juxtaposed to the standard tang (no, you cannot have the secret ingredient (and no, it isn't Tang)) Manicures - i am equal parts of tomboy and girlie-girl and my favorite girlie thing is the manicure; i feel extra pretty when my hands are pretty Monkeys - who doesn't love monkeys? (oh yeah, sorry Rea (she doesn't care for monkeys)) Here at my desk i have my Monkey in the Mail (Valentine's last year from Douglas), my mood monkeys (swirly, annoyed, startled, nervous breakdown, energized, giggly, hopeful, spring fever, fallen, lovesick, distracted, frightened, industrious, hacking-up-a-lung, and sassy) penned by Rob to advertise to the office how cautiously to approach my desk, and my string of pipe cleaner monkeys made by Erin Museums - art, history, science, crap; no matter what it is if you gather a bunch of it, theme it, write good signage and display it i will pay 12 bucks to come look at it (of course it helps that as a museum employee i get into a lot of places free) Marshes - ahhhh the wetlands; i love the smell of the marsh, the gentle swaying of the tall grasses, the muck flowing into my shoes - its all good in a marsh M'oni Cheese - my favorite food; how can you go wrong with noodles and cheese??? (unless you're lactose intolerant or just nuts (sorry Jason... i love you, but you're a freak)) Mail - i like making it, sending it, and receiving it (hint, hint people) Men - once described as my favorite land animal (which is actually the tiger, in case you were wondering) there is no denying how much i love men; you'll just have to take my word for it that my reasons are both subtle and obvious Are there any Ms that you love that didn't make my list?
