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.|
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.
