These are a Few of my Favorite Things Game

Sandi set herself to play a game/meme that Susie Q of Rabbit Run Cottage posted. Don't exactly know why I like these long lists of things to fill out, but I do. And I keep on doing them, in emails, on applications, and on blogs. So here I am doing one again. :)


Sport: Ice Skating

Yatzee Color: red

Movie: I cycle between 3 favorites: Twister, The American President, and Practical Magic

Broadway Play I've Seen: Phantom of the Opera

Song: Because I've been playlisting there are too many possibilities, but the first one that came to mind was, "What Kind of Fool Am I?" Still looking for this one for the playlist.

Favorite City Visited: Asheville, NC - it had this "walk me" feel in the Biltmore Village part of it.

Favorite Foreign City Visited: Nassau, Bahamas which is the only foreign city I've visited.

Book: If by favorite you mean I reread it, that would be the Bible. Other books get read and put on the shelf.

Children's Book: The Dragons are Singing Tonight by Jack Prelutsky

Poem share from above mentioned book -
The Dragons Are Singing Tonight

Tonight is the night all the dragons
Awake in their lairs underground,
To sing in cacophonous chorus
And fill the whole world with their sound.
They sing of the days of their glory,
They sing of their exploits of old,
Of maidens and Knights, and of fiery fights,
And guarding vast caches gold.
Some of their voices are treble,
And some of their voices are deep,
But all of their voices are thunderous,
And no one can get any sleep.
I lie in my bed and I listen,
Enchanted and filled with delight,
To songs I can hear only one night a year--
The dragons are singing tonight.
