What Do I Love?

Inkstainedhands tagged me in this meme.
I gotta say, I find memes funny. I mean, by definition, bloggers talk about themselves. So why do we need memes to get us talking? Well either way, here are seven things I love. I tried to keep people, spirituality, and shallow things off my list, so it was hard. I mean, naturally, I love my parents, I love G-d and the Torah, and I love ice cream. I'm not sure what love is supposed to mean in this situation, nor do I love my parents the same way I love ice cream. That being said, here is my interpretation of the situation: (like I always say, satisfaction guaranteed or your money back!)

1) I love the feeling that I worked hard on something...and my efforts came to fruition.

2) I love making other people laugh.

3) I love writing. Any kind of writing.

4) I love spending time with old friends. (New friends who are reading this, don't get insulted! I love spending time with you too! :-)

5) I love cuddling a new born baby.

6) I love watching the rain falling outside when I am enveloped by the warmth, shelter and safety of my house.

7) I love when people come out of their lurkiness and tell me that they are reading my blog! (I especially love it when they don't do it as "anonymous")

I'm supposed to tag people now,i'm guessing seven of them, but I've always been different. I'm just gonna tag everyone to do this...why not? (In other words, I'm on my iPod and can't put in links and anyway I'm sure most people who want to do this already did...but if you do chose to tell us about yourself in seven random tidbits, please leave a comment in lieu of a link.)

I'm not sure if I ever commented here before but just wanted to let you know- I love ur blog. It's so interesting, refreshing, and clean. Quite funny that ur seven all describe me too. Not sure if they wld all make it to the top seven.. but maybe they would. Oh, but I don't like any kind of writing, only certain kinds...

Freeda- hey! Thanks for the compliments!
I don't know if these are all in the tip seven things, just that these are things that popped into my head as I wrote it. Number six, for example, would not have made it onto the list had it not been pouring as I wrote it.

Freeda said...

yeah, six was the one that probably wouldn't have made it onto my list either. Actually, seven also wouldn't have. And for #5, instead of cuddling a newborn, it would be spending time with any of the children I love. And perhaps #2 wouldn't be making people laugh as much as it would be making them happy, making them smile.
When I was in E"Y, I played a game on the bus. I'd smile at someone who looked stern/sad with my friendliest smile until they'd smile back. 'twas fun.

Yeah, I also got really confused about what the heck love is supposed to mean in this situatin. I just wrote some very general stuff.. I see yours and it seems so much more correct!

Those are a great seven, and I love them too.

It's cool how people are always popping up to say they've been reading your blog.

Something Different said...

Freeda- number six was only on this list because it was raining when I wrote it... ;-)
And why don't you have a blog? I'd love to see your list!

WYNI- Yeah, I think in this case love can be defined any way you want.

DOTL- All of them would have been the same?

Lvnsm- Thanks :-)

JSB- Isn't it? I wasn't joking when I said I love it. It's a very gratifying feeling.

Something Different said...

Freeda- I am so sorry! I see that you have a blog, but the last time I checked your profile I didn't see it... :-/
Well, consider yourself tagged!
