Day 2 of Writing 101 and today’s assignment is to write a list.
I was going to come up with a list of my favourite lists, but it turns out there aren’t that many lists in my life of importance. My weekly shopping list helps to keep Mrs Proclaims and I well stocked with household goods but makes less than exciting reading.
But I don’t want to miss an assignment, so a list is required.
Therefore, bereft of both ‘raindrops on roses’ and indeed ‘ whiskers on kittens’, here are a few of my favourite things…
Favourite film – The Empire Strikes Back
(Raiders of the Lost Ark would also be in with a shout but Empire wins because it’s also the best Star Wars film and Star Wars beats Indiana Jones by the slimmest of margins in my book).
Favourite film that isn’t part of an awesome franchise like Star Wars or Indiana Jones – The Princess Bride.
Favourite novel – Jonathan Stange and Mr Norrel by Sussana Clarke (honourable mention to the recent BBC TV series, which was very good but the book is still better)
Favourite French Film (because they’re different to other films) – L’Auberge Espagnole
Favourite TV Show – Blackadder
Favourite album – Definitely Maybe (Oasis)
Favourite Sports team – The Welsh Rugby Team (the only team that can make me shout at the TV when I’m in a room on my own)
Favourite Food to have for a main meal – I like most food. But you can’t go wrong with lasagne.
Favourite Dessert – Ice-cream (any flavour – I love ice-cream)
Favourite Drink – Good coffee is the best, but bad coffee is the worst.
Favourite List – The UK singles charts on the 20th August 1995 was pretty exciting as I recall.
The above list is subject to change at a moment’s notice according to the mood I’m in on any given day.
But my love of ice cream is eternal.
