The S List

I love memes and this one is from JJ at Tea Stains . If you want to do it, leave me a comment saying so, and I'll give you a letter. JJ has given me the letter S and the meme is my list of ten things I love beginning with S.

Sense and Sensibility - one of my top three Jane Austen novels. The other two are Pride and Prejudice and Persuasion.

Sisters - I have three awesome younger sisters, but I have to shout out to the youngest whose name starts with an S, Stephanie.

Shepherds - As in toy Australian Shepherds, as in Drewser.

Santa and stockings and snow - I love all things Christmas.

Stephenie Meyer - I love her fun romantic vampires. And her website, which has some great playlists.

Semi-sweet chocolate - no Angie favorites list is complete without a mention of chocolate, and as far as I'm concerned, the darker the better.

Starbucks - I heart coffee, but skinny lattes are my weakness.

Strawberries - Is any explanation needed for this most wonderful fruit?

San Francisco - I love living in the bay area and visiting this beautiful city regularly, but my favorite section is North Beach, otherwise known as Little Italy.

SW1 - I couldn't figure out how to squeeze London in to this tops list, but never fear, I found a way via this prestigious postcode.

Shakespeare - Anyone writing in the English language owes a lot to the great grandad of English lit. To be [a writer] or not to be? That is the question.

Silver - I've never been a gold girl, but I love all things silver, including my jewelry, my car, and my first teddybear, who bears the name.

Strongbow - I discovered dry English cider while living in London, and I've never turned back.

Singing, swimming, surprises, and sassy red nail polish - These round out the list of my favorite things starting with S.

Okay, so I have a bit over ten, but it was too fun...

Signing off for 2008. Have a safe and Happy New Year all!

Oooh Angie, fab list - thanks for sharing it.

I love your Strongbow and Shakespeare! LOL.


Happy New Year

Great list. Glad you got SW1 in there:-)

Wishing you all the very best for 2009 Angie:-)

That's a great list. Thanks for sharing.

Looks like you are making good progress on the second draft, too. I'm hoping to get my first draft done in the not-to-distant future.

Thank you Angie - and the same to you!

Btw, I've book-marked your site on my Writing Therapy page (the better to keep up-to-date with posts).

Angie said...

JJ, Strongbow and Shakespeare are fab. I wonder if they mix well?

Lane, me too! I was worried. :)

Chad, I just made a new plan of attack for the second draft. Fingers crossed. Good luck with your draft, it sounds like you're doing well.

The Dotterel, thanks for visiting (and bookmarking!).

Apologies for the late comment (I am behind with my reading). "SouthBank" would match that lovely picture you use at the top of your blog.

Angie said...

Ha, good point, Pierre, I missed that one. And I thought I was so clever with my SW1. :)

SW1 was very clever. When I moved to the UK (in 1975), my girlfriend (later my wife) lived in SW7, and we used to go to the National Film Theatre (on the SouthBank) and sometimes walk home from there. When we had children she decided that Hyde Park wasn't a good place to bring up babies so we moved about 40 miles away so I hardly go to London. But, as I said before, I am very fond of that picture).
