Another Meme - Favorites

This meme is circulating on a few blogs, and I thought I'd participate. I found it at Professor Dyke.

Pet Peeves

1. I live in a small town. I can't stand drivers who stop in the road for no fucking reason.

2. People who talk on their fucking cell phones when they're driving. Turn the dang-blasted thing OFF.

3. Trolls in my comments.

Favorite Sounds

1. The ocean surf. I never get enough of it.

2. Chickadees.

3. My cat Lucky meowing when he wants attention, which is all the time.

Least Favorite Sounds

1. The LOUD fire department horn in town going on when some idiot tourist sets a kitchen on fire.

2. Road construction.

3. My cat Lucky meowing when he wants attention, which is all the time.

Favorite Flavors of Candy

1. Chocolate

2. Licorice

3. Did I say chocolate? ;)

Biggest Fears

1. Driving in Massachusetts. The drivers here are out of their fricking minds. I also recently learned that I have no night vision. It's scary as hell for me to drive in the dark, and there are next to no street lights on the streets and highways here.

2. That my fiction won't sell. Pretty silly, considering I just sold four stories.

3. That I won't have enough money. That fear comes from my early divorce days.

Biggest Challenges

1. To keep writing when I feel like my writing sucks.

2. To stay interested in family law, feminism, and the rights of mothers and children when I get frustrated and fed up with all of them.

3. To get out of bed when I feel down.

Favorite Department Stores

I don't shop at department stores. These will have to be my big three:

1. The local consignment shop, where I buy all kinds of stuff. It's one of those places where rich locals take their clothes and stuff, because they won't be caught dead wearing the same thing twice. I found some incredible bargains at this place, and proceeds go to a local soup kitchen.

2. Annie's Book Shop. A store in Beverly that sells used and new books.

3. eBay. I found most of my Asian horror movies there because they are incredibly hard to find (but they're catching on in the U. S. now). I also found all my Lara Croft dioramas and figurines that are also incredibly hard to find.

Most Used Words

1. "[Son's name deleted], wash the dishes!"

2. Asshat

3. Tied between "Skunk Ape" and "ooze bag," lately, on my blog. They're my faves for the moment for trolls.

Favorite Pizza Toppings

I don't like pizza unless the following toppings on are it:

1. Anchovies

2. Anchovies

3. Anchovies

Favorite Cartoon Characters

I don't have any.

Movies Recently Watched

1. Doc Hollywood

2. Open Water (Go rent that one! It'll have you on the edge of your seat.)

3. Resident Evil: Apocalypse (Not that good. The original was better.)

[Trish's note: I want to see "White Noise" as soon as it comes out.]

Favorite Fruits

1. Red Raspberries

2. Bing Cherries

3. Blood Oranges

Favorite Vegetables

1. Asparagus

2. Potatoes

3. Corn-on-the-cob

You, who goes to the anime conventions and all that, have no favorite cartoon characters?
