Friend Makin’ Mondays: More Favorite Things

After a week without FMM, I have a greater understanding of how much I love hosting this every week.  I know some of you love it as much as I do so I’m looking forward to getting back to it today!  As I began typing, I realized that today is a national holiday so I wish all of you a day filled with sunshine and people you love.  And we’ll welcome you back next week if you’re out today. 🙂

If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here at: www.alltheweigh.com so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!

We’ve talked about this topic before, but this week the questions are different so take a few minutes to think on your answers.  And if you have any ideas for FMM, feel free to pass them along!  And if we use them, you’ll be sure to get the credit! 🙂

FMM:  Favorite Things

 

1) What is your favorite food?  I talk about food a lot of my blog, but Thai is my favorite.  There’s nothing better (on my plate) than quality Pad Thai.  I love sushi too though recently I’ve begun to worry that it’s not as good for me as I thought.  (This makes me sad, and I’ll probably post on it soon.)

2) What is your favorite childhood memory? This question came up recently, and I felt like my answer was so lame.  Now, looking back, I think my favorite memories were fun times with my family – around the Christmas tree, singing songs together in church, tubing down the Frio River in the Texas hill country…

3) What is your favorite way to burn calories?  The elliptical is my favorite piece of gym equipment, but I also love aerobics in the form of dance.  I also love my bicycle so I guess those are my top three. 🙂

4) What is your favorite mode of technological communication? Phone? Text? E-mail? Tweets? I like all of it.  If I can’t sit in the room with the person I’m talking to, I prefer the phone.  It’s easier to understand the person and feel connected.  But I like all forms of communication.

5) Who is your favorite actor/actress? My favorite actor is either Matt Bomer of Zachary Levi.  I’ve talked about these boys before.  They’re just soooooooooooo handsome..and talented too, of course.

6) What is your favorite lip color? That’s kind of like asking me to choose my favorite cupcake.  I love so many!  My favorite standard now is “Creamy Nude” by Clinique.  It’s so old school because I seriously wore it in high school.  But I also love giant lip pencils by Smashbbox and glosses by Dior, Bare Minerals and Stila.

7) Who is your favorite historical figure? Anne Frank is probably my favorite…

8) Who is your favorite athlete?  Lance Armstrong is my favorite (and not just because he’s a sexy Texan.)  The guy is a machine, and he is proof that victory is worth the struggle.

9) What is your favorite TV network? I love USA Network most…I like sitcoms more than reality TV, and almost every show that they air is my favorite.  They know how to do it.  I just wish they didn’t split seasons…Heck, I wish there was a new episode of every show every week.  I’d never sleep.

10) What is your favorite site on the web? I have a short list of sites that I visit often like Drudge Report, Twitter and CNN.  I also read several blogs regularly and hope to read even more because this community is filled with brilliant folks.

 

Now it’s your turn to answer!  Don’t forget to come back and link up!

    My favorite things are posting tomorrow (Monday) at 6:00 am pst. Thanks for this great idea. How fun!

    The post will be at : http://thefatgirlsguidetolife.com/2011/09/05/friend-makin-mondays-favorite-things (even though you said to add my link, it still feels taboo!)

    Thanks, Kenlie!

        Lol. Well you know that not-so-unspoken-rule that it’s bad form to leave a link to your own site in the comments on another person’s blog? I did that a couple of times in my first few days of blogging and read somewhere later that it was sort of frowned upon. Yeesh, did I feel embarrassed!

        This was so much fun today. I had a blast reading everyone’s blogs and getting so many fun comments on mine. Thanks a bunch! 😀

    1) What is your favorite food?
    Anything Mexican. I don’t think I could live without Mexican food.

    2) What is your favorite childhood memory?
    I would have to say my favorite childhood memory would be any days I spent with my old, best friend Jason. We’ve grown apart over the years because we’re in different locations and we were a grade apart, but I look back so fondly on every waking moment I spent with my best buddy. I miss him now.

    3) What is your favorite way to burn calories?
    Leslie Sansone workouts. I like that I burn calories doing the videos, but that I’m not in pain afterwards. I’m a wimp.

    4) What is your favorite mode of technological communication? Phone? Text? E-mail? Tweets?
    Texting. I text, like, a million things a day.

    5) Who is your favorite actor/actress?
    I love Kate Winslet. Not just because of her weight issues, but because she’s brilliant!

    6) What is your favorite lip color?
    Anything really bright pink…like…cupcake icing neon pink.

    7) Who is your favorite historical figure?
    Emily Dickinson.

    8) Who is your favorite athlete?
    I guess…geez…I don’t really pay attention to athletes. Maybe Shaun White? Cuz I love snowboarding, but I just like to watch it to see what humans can do with their bodies.

    9) What is your favorite TV network?
    AMC. Hands down!

    10) What is your favorite site on the web?
    Facebook. I’m an addict.

    Thank you for this opportunity. It was fun! I’m still not through checking out everyone else’s blogs!

    Favorite Things:

    1. What is your favorite food? It would be cheese and onion enchiladas at the cafe inside the local Hispanic grocery store. For dessert would be cheesecake.

    2. What is your favorite childhood memory? I won a talent contest for singing and playing guitar when I was 11 years old. A few hours later, I won a cake at the cake walk.

    3. What is your favorite way to burn calories? I’m not sure I burn that many calories at the gym, but I LOVE weightlifting and yoga.

    4. What is your favorite mode of technological communication? Blogging. Emails are pretty good too. I don’t like telephone calls at all.

    5. Who is your favorite actor/actress? It’s a tie between Sylvester Stallone and Johnny Depp. Sly has so much heart in his Rocky movies, while Johnny has so much magic, especially in Pirates of the Caribbean and Alice in Wonderland.

    6. What is your favorite lip color? Peach.

    7. Who is your favorite historical figure? I wish I could have talked to my favorite deceased authors–the Bronte sisters, Jane Austin, Charles Dickens, Catherine Cookson, Phyllis Whitney, and Victoria Holt.

    8. Who is your favorite athlete? My favorite athlete is myself. I just love me being athletic. My next answer would be my blog readers and blogging buddies. I just love when my readers tell me about how they are athletic.Also, my gym buddies being athletic–that is so great!

    9. What is your favorite tv network? Fox at night (but NOT Fox in the morning–yech!). I love Glee, American Idol, and So You Think You Can Dance. But NBC’s The Sing-Off is my ultimate favorite show.

    10. What is your favorite site on the web? I find exciting stuff all over the web, but the tie would be between youtube.com, watching live versions of all the best singers singing my favorite songs, and my friends’ blogs. Yeah, you blogger buddies matter to me. 😀

    🙂 Marion
