mmmmsnacks!
1. Cucumbers. you'll notice it makes the list Fi asked for too. lol
2. chips and ranch dip. horribly bad for you and I don't care.
3. carrots! SO good.
4. pretzels. I'd stopped eating them years ago and for some reason picked up a bag one day and realized how much I really enjoyed them. They're awesome in the aforementioned ranch dip as well.
5. milk and double stuff. I am a reformed dunker turned twist and lick-er

1. Cucumbers! I love them and eat some almost every day, in season and out. [they make brilliant sandwiches!]
2. tomatoes. which amuses my parents because I wouldn't eat them until I was around 13. a nice tomato and mozzarella salad with basil can make a day.
3. fresh made strawberry shortcake. See above. ;-)
4. traditional Thanksgiving dinner
5. stilton cheese.... makes an exception grilled cheese if you have some nice dark german bread.

Boy. I'm not going to win Foodie of the Year with that list, am I?

Top Five NSYNC-related Travel experiences.

Date: 2009-08-09 03:13 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] msktrnanny.livejournal.com
1. Challenge!! Somebody posted a slew of pics of the guys the other day and there were a lot from various challenges and suddenly I missed the whole experience so much. Such a great way to spend an annual vacation!
2. Dallas to see Chris. all that excitement over music we'd not really heard before, a warehouse gone club that was showing Time Machine on one wall and a handful of awesome women flying in from around the country!.
3. Chicago, Nick Carter concert. More organized than the Chris adventure and MUCH colder [it was February] but it was scads of fun.
4. Europe, 2003. My very first trip abroad- and what I thought would be my last. Met at Heathrow by a fellow fan I'd never laid eyes on [Charlie!], a week in Munich with another fan I'd never met in person, [livejournal.com profile] ramblinround, and loads of footage and laughter and fun.
5. Camp Sparkle 2008-09. How can you possibly beat 20 fellow fans from at least 5 countries gathered round a dining table talking fandom? You can't!

I honestly wonder if they have any idea how awesome our lives are because of the people we've met 'through' them.

Top 5 reasons you like (or don't like) where you live

Date: 2009-08-09 03:26 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] msktrnanny.livejournal.com
as with any place there is good and bad, so here's a top five of each

Good:
1. Seasonal change. Can't top it.
2. history. Sure, it's not a monastery built it 1049, but CT is loaded with serious US history.
3. It's familiar. Sounds lame but there's an awful lot to be said for a place that has something comforting in it's familiarity around you all the time.
4. seafood! when it's in season, it's awesome!! as well as the produce, etc. We're very seasonal eaters here. generations of people raised on 'eat it while you can get it' haven't completely lost the thrill of it being fresh! local! and in season! even if you can get it in December at Stop & Shop.
5. cultural proximity. We have several really great museums, two really awesome theaters [as well as two that run as testing grounds for Broadway], a wine trail and historical everything but. Should you get bored, or exhaust those options New York and Boston are less than two hours away.

Bad.
1. Our government, and more specifically the people in our governments, seem to be quite the crooked lot. Iti's most alarming.
2. the economy here is in a very nasty spiral. 25 years ago, any number of companies HQ'd here. That number is quite small now.
3. Over development. CT is a small state, yet we haven't seem to set any limits on tearing down to build new, either on land or perfectly usable and gorgeous old buildings. Sadly, great swaths of the state are just plain ugly now. [Berlin Tpk. and Silas Dean I'm looking at you]
4. Unemployment is still on the rise. [see #2]
5. Most of my friends, save a most treasured handful, have moved away or never lived here to begin with.
