Addicted? Who, Me?

So, my friend, Wheezer, tagged me! I am to list 5 things I am addicted to. Five is a small list, so I think I can make that happen. I'm not, however, tagging anyone else - if you want to play, play. So, here we go:

1. Trivia. I can't help it. I am utterly addicted to playing online trivia. If you need an answer to some weird, random question, don't hesitate to ask - I might know.

2. Pottery by Gary. Oh yeah, just take a look at my latest acquisition. Gorgeous, isn't it? Well, one is gorgeous, the others are cute and funny!

3. Asparagus and Avacados. I know, you're thinking, "You're addicted to asparagus and avacados?" Well, I'm not saying I eat them together, or every day, but... I really believe asparagus is the "king of vegetables" - oh yes, the spears are really crowns! And avacados? Don't get me started. Let's just say these would both be on my last meal request if I happened to be on death row.

4. Reading. I know, boring, huh? But I love it. If I am reincarnated, I hope I come back as a bookstore owner. I'm just going to sit on a stool reading and pointing people toward non-fiction, humor, self-help, and whatever else they're looking to find.

5. Art. Love it. Gotta' draw, gotta' paint, gotta' do some graphics. I've let this wane a bit since we adopted Nicole, but it's a passion I can't quell (good word, huh?). I am starting to feel the desire to get back in. For me, it's almost meditation... I get tunnel-vision and the rest of the world disappears while I am creating. How about the rest of you artists - are you like me - do you feel like the work just flows through you or do you really create it? I can NOT create anything - it always feels like it passes through, but the weird thing is that almost everything I do is of a person, a face.... I couldn't paint a giraffe or horse or house if I wanted to.

That's five!

I LOVE those crabby clams...I know some people who could use a dose of Gary's pottery in their lives. And yes, avocadoes are my thing, too. I can eat them plain, in guacamole or any old way! Trivial Pursuit used to be a passion of mine...never tried trivia online, though. But art? I can write, but don't even put a Crayola in these hands of mine!

oh my Lynda, you are so nice....
I wouldn't touch guacamole until my dairy allergy worsened and I gave up cheese and sour cream---holy cats, guac is tasty! And you know, fresh asparagus will be coming along soon!!!!!!
I gotta find out who veggie mom is..thanks Lynda!
