T is for ...

I love a meme and this one is from Marmite & Tea. If you want to do it you need to leave a comment for me saying so, and then I give you a letter. Marmite & Tea has given me the letter T and the meme is my list of ten things I love beginning with T.

So, in no particular order…

T is for Tea: PG Tips is my favourite but I’ve had phases for Yorkshire Tea as well. Although I love a good strong builder’s tea, I can be quite classy too, partaking of green tea (oolong is my favourite) when the mood takes me.

T is for Thailand: I am part way through my fourth year here and I never thought I’d have the chance to live as an expat in another country. It was my first time in Asia and is my first experience living in a city. I think it is the most exciting thing ever to happen to me.

T is for TBR pile: I couldn’t live without books and my To Be Read pile needs to be well supplied. I always have a book on the go…

T is for Tootsie: I LOVE the film Tootsie with Dustin Hoffman who auditions as ‘Dorothy’ to get a part in a soap opera to prove to his agent he is employable. I can’t begin to guess how many times I’ve seen the film. I was going to try and tell you my favourite scenes, but there are just too many.

T is for Two children: I have two hands and two knees and when I got one of each gender, I thought it was perfect.

T is for Typography: I needed to take a year off between school and university because I didn’t know what subject I wanted to do. My Dad had a colleague who suggested a secretarial course that one of her nieces had done and I am eternally grateful to my Dad for sending me. I love being able to type. I love that I am fast and accurate and I don’t have to think what I am doing.

T is for Teetotal I wish: I do like a drink but the older I get the more ill I become. I stopped drinking red wine at University because I’d get a migraine before the first glass was finished. Now it’s any alcohol. Sometimes I’m stupid and over-indulge anyway, claiming I don’t care, but I do and it makes me so ill for so many days, I no longer think it’s worth it.

T is for Too much worrying: ‘Nuff said, really. I wish I didn’t.

T is for Trees in autumn: It’s my favourite season and I really miss the colours and weather in England.

T is for The Beast: which is the nickname of Husband.

Nice T's. Wish I could be teetotal too. It's just not worth it any more. (Well sometimes it is:-)

Would like to be able to type properly too!

Oh yes - a letter lobbed my way would be very nice:-)

JJ said...

Okie Doke, Lane, your letter is N.

Caroline said...

"The Beast" - I don't know why that made me giggle so much. It just sounds rude (or perhaps it is my rude mind!)

Can I have a nice letter please, JJ?

JJ said...

Caroline, you are a bad girl. Think about my surname ... and put an S in the middle of it... see? Not rude: logical.

Your nice letter is L. I hope that's okay.

Carol and Chris said...

Can I have a letter too please?

I love your T's they are all great and yes PG Tips is the best tea and I wish I could type too.

Paige said...

Me and Caroline must think alike cause I too giggled at your husband's nickname! lol

Can I have a letter please?

Debs said...

I also thought it was rude, I have to admit.

Great answers.

HelenMH said...

Interesting nickname you have for your husband :)

JJ said...

Flowerpot, thank you honey.

M&T, thank you for the meme. I'm glad you liked my Ts.

Paige, then you too are a very naughty person! ;-P Your letter is R.

Debs, more rude people. Cheeky.

Helen, He's been called that since he was 11 on account of his surname!

Carol and Chris said...

There is an award over at mine for you :-)

BEAST said...

and on account of his enormous....

JJ said...

AHEM... yes, that's right... enormous PERSONALITY.

Moving swiftly on...

Angie said...

Hahaha, this comment thread keeps getting more interesting!

I love all your Ts, particularly the PG Tips variety. I, too, suffer migraines before the wine glass is empty, and yet, I keep trying. Ah well.

May I have a letter as well, if there are any left?

JJ said...

Angie, it does, doesn't it? Aren't we naughty?

Your letter then is S. I hope that's okay.
