My Four Things

28 July 2015

I saw B post this recently, and thought it looked fun. And as I’m all still sort of blergh with everything else going on, it’s a nice break from working out other posts. Apparently you’re supposed to tag people, but I’ll follow Barb’s lead on this and just say if you’re interested, join in! (And I changed one of the categories back because I’ve not attended many different cons.)

All right then. Your turn!

  • B.

    I love that everyone is doing this! I’m with you on mushrooms. Ugh. Just thinking about the texture freaks me out!

    • Agreed! Though I will say I do like cooking with them — mainly my baked brie with mushrooms… but I’ve never tried it to know how it taste. Friends seem to like it though.

  • Kay

    These have been so fun to read! Dance with skill made my list of things I wish I could do as well.
    Super random tangent – I am struggling so hard with SoA right now. I’m in Season 4 and I am SO MAD at everyone and their decisions (especially Clay. FUCK CLAY). This show gives me such feels!!

    • I think I’m in season 3 right now with the rewatch. But yeah… it gets worse. Clay frustrated me, but really Gemma gets under my skin the most.

  • This is a fun one! I love “Criminal Minds” & can basically watch every episode on repeat forever.

    • I think I’m going to start Criminal Minds again in a few weeks. I just love the dynamics between the characters. That’s what really makes the show for me. 🙂
