Thursday Thirteen and Other Stuff

I can't completely tell if this is real, but it begs the question: What are condoms, needles and rubbish doing in the hair?

Since yesterday was Sarcasm Thursday, I didn't get a chance to do the Thursday Thirteen. So I sat down to do it, and here I am, not able to think of anything. So I decided to go to the site, pick a blogger at random and do whatever they did.

First one turned out to be: Thirteen Things I Love About My Sister, Bean.

Well. That's not going to work. Let's try it again.

Thirteen Things I Love About Summer by Magnolia Mom

OK, I can do this one.

1. The sun.

I'm generally pro-sun, despite my boggy, marshy ancestors, as long as it's not too hot.

2. Wearing shorts and no coat.

I hate wearing coats because I always end up carrying them. That's the good thing about California - sometimes even in winter you can get away with no coat.

3. Ice Cream

Although, I like ice cream any time of the year.

4. That it stays light until 9pm

Don't know why - it's not like I'm out in it. Mosquitos.

5. Good photo opportunities

6. More time for the kids to play outside, wear themselves out and sleep well.

7. Swimming

I hardly ever go swimming and every time I do I remember how much I like it.

8. Air-conditioned movie theaters on a hot day

9. Eating outside

10. Grilling

11. Sandals

12. Strawberries

13. Fresh tomatoes

Phew! That was hard. Summer's not my favorite season, although I do appreciate it. I'm an Autumn Girl, myself.

I like summer, but spring (or autumn) is my favorite time of year.

I hate mosquitos, so I agree with you on #4!

I love grilling! :) What is your favorite thing to grill?

My list is here! :)

Your blog is charming.
This is my first visit here.

I liked your number 2.
"I hate wearing coats because..."

I live in the Northeast where it gets mighty cold in the winter and I oftentimes go coatless (especially while driving). I hate bulky coats.

My answer would be that I mostly I love summer because of the relaxed schedules. Even though my kids are all grown now I do so recall loving that laid-back feeling of no school, etc..

Oh, I love the feeling of going into just about anywhere with AC on a hot summer day!

My Thursday Thirteen is up!

Happy Thursday!
