I love 3 Things posts, both as a reader and blogger. They are fun to read because I always learn interesting things about the blogger and (hopefully) my readers discover fun and new things about me too. I’ve written a couple 3 Things posts previously, here and here. These particular prompts came from my buddy, Jana, over at Jana Says. Let’s do this!
Three Foods I Hate and Refuse to Eat:
Oysters, liver and eel (sushi). I am extremely particular about fish. And hamburger.
Three foods I Love and Eat More of than I Should:
- Pizza — preferably vegetarian although recently I’ve become a fan of pepperoni, which I used to hate as a child.
- Eggs — I’m like Bubba from Forrest Gump but with eggs. I like them scrambled, fried, poached, hard-boiled, in a cake …. errrrr … omelette — you get the picture.
- Tortilla chips with salsa and guacamole ‘cuz I like Mexico.
Three Chores I Avoid until Absolutely Necessary:
Every chore. I have bought new underwear to avoid doing laundry. Uhhh … TMI?
Three Chores I Always Do:
Every chore. Some day I will either be rich so I can pay someone to clean my home or I will marry someone who will clean my home — it will be part of our vows or no “I do”!
I’d also like to train my cat, Max, to clean but my efforts to teach him how to high-five merely led to lowered self-esteem after enduring many haughty looks of disdain.
Three Wardrobe Staples
Flip-flops, running shorts (and no, I don’t run) and t-shirts. This is where I also mention I work from home and live in LA. Here is My Good Deed for the Day: You should never solely wear elastic waistband pants because you will get fat without noticing. Ahem.
Three Things I Don’t Spend Money On:
Manicures (never last more than a day), fake fingernails (can’t type or zip up pants wearing them) or streaming. It’s not that I don’t want Netflix or Hulu but my budget is lean and my cable is bundled with my Internet. And to get Internet alone costs the same (and sometimes even more) than a bundled plan. Some day I will know firsthand the greatness of Stranger Things but until then, I somehow manage to survive. 😀
Three Things I Do Spend Money On:
Max (he is indulged), quality paper (I adore fancy journals, notepads and notebooks) and good skincare products (I’m old).
Three TV Shows I Frequently Watch in Reruns:
Bones (just started binge-watching old episodes), Murder She Wrote (yes, I’m an old coot) and The Big Bang Theory (I no longer watch new episodes, just old ones).
Three Movies I Love (that Might Surprise You):
Resident Evil, even though I don’t play video games but tend to really enjoy movies based on them (Hitman, Tomb Raider). Horror movies, like The Conjuring, Insidious and Get Out, and I used to HATE horror movies as a child. I also really, really, really love Dumb and Dumber. It’s been years since I’ve watched it, so I have no idea how well it holds up, but it made me laugh until my belly ached. I ummm … really like low brow comedies.
Three Genres I Generally Don’t Read:
Romance (maybe one per year), non-fiction (except for self-help) and classics. I like Jane Austen but think of her fondly from when she was required reading versus someone who rereads her works every year.
Three Things I’m Looking Forward to this Year:
The Blue Tsunami Wave making landfall on November 6, 2018, getting my shit together (not entirely sure what this entails yet but so excited for it to happen) and achieving and maintaining my weight goal.
Oh happy days, indeed.
Your turn! Pick one and tell me your three things or borrow this post for your own blog!
