gimme an S!

It's sad really. Only the 13th and I'm already begging for help with NaBloSucMo. Fortunately, Uncle Crappy has come to my rescue. This meme is simple. I commented on his post so he gave me a letter, "S" to be precise. I am to list 10 things I love that start with my letter. Then I assign a letter to anyone who asks for one in the comments, thus continuing the cycle. See, it's simple! 

So here's my list:

1. Spawn
My kids have to top the list. Oliver and Eleanor are the best things ever.
2. Spouse
That would be CD. Also the best, and co-producer of the aforementioned spawn. 
3. Suzy
She's my sister. She also loves the spawn and spouse. And doesn't think I'm evil. Most of the time, anyway.
4. Spaniels
I have to admit there are some spaniels I like more than others. Clumbers and Sussex top the list. I'm fond of Welsh springers too. When I'm old and unable to chase those, maybe I'll have a Cavalier King Charles.
5. Shopping
Yeah, I'm a shopping junkie. On-line, catalog, brick & mortar, doesn't matter to me. It's all good. And the only thing that makes it better is also an "s", sale! And let's not forget free shipping.
6. Starbucks
Tall skinny hazelnut latte, please. Or maybe just a doppio. And a tall skim chai. Throw in a salted caramel hot chocolate while you're at it.
7. Shoes
I worked in a shoe store in high school and I'm still not over it. It's probably a good thing I can't wear heels, as that eliminates most women's shoes from eligibility for a spot in my closet.
8. Scones
Other than Harrod's, the scones I make are the best I've ever had. Now I just have to find the time to make them once in a while. 
9. Speed
I like to go fast. I miss having a little car that could handle like my white VW Golf and some twisty mountain roads to drive around. It's probably why I like flying too, especially take off.
It's an "s", honest. And I like it. But I don't suppose that's enough to get entered in TrannyHead's contest.

So now it's your turn. Just ask and I'll throw a letter your way.

I hate to disagree but my strawberry yogurt scones are the best ever.

And I would love a letter. Pretty please. I've already failed nablowhatever but I am willing to keep going.

Emma, We will have to compare scone recipes. Though I am a purist (currants and cream and all that) I am willing to try the strawberry yogurt. And do not give that NaBlo rot another thought. It's only meant to mess with your brain.

I give you M for your letter. Go crazy!

Haha--gotta love #10.

I've always loved King Charles Spaniels. I had a Cocker growing up, and he was unbelievably sweet, but was quite a lot of work and ended up being insanely expensive by the end.

ClumberKim said...

Allison, though you didn't ask for one here you did on Plurk so I'm going to give you "D".

I've hit a posting wall, although I am not doing namoetc. May I have a letter please?


ClumberKim said...

RPM, you get T for your letter. Can't wait to read what you come up with.

Amy said...

OK Kim, give me a letter!

ClumberKim said...

Amy, you get F!!

KG said...

BWAHAHA - I approve of your use of green beans.

However - it is NOT sufficient to be entered in the Great Green Bean Giveaway (details to be announced Monday).

Just DO IT!

#10 could have been S-u-c-c-e-s-s

Remember that cheer?

For next time you get stuck, I give you C.

Matt said...

Q: A?

ClumberKim said...

Trannyhead: You aren't asking for a letter, are you?
If you're feeling adventurous, I'll throw a B your way.

Virginia: You don't get to give me a letter unless you do the meme on your blog and I ask for one.

Matt: Are you asking me for A? Hmmmm. I don't think it works that way either, but I'm willing to bend. Knock yourself out.
