Friday Fun: Fun With Numbers

I was feeling random this week (as you can tell by my posts), and so to end the week off, I thought that the Friday Fun should be something fairly random as well. Just plucked out of nowhere, for no good reason, except for fun.

So today, friends, the Friday Fun is brought to you by the number 3.

Tell me THREE…

  1. …really great gifts you received.
  2. …things that make you cry.
  3. …movies that you thought were really disappointing.
  4. …favourite movies.
  5. …of your favourite vegetables
  6. …pretty things you can see right now.
  7. …things you can do with bananas.
  8. …things you want to learn/try/do before you die.
  9. …herbs I should grow in my garden.
  10. …suggestions for names for Mystery Baby that start with a vowel. (That’s 3 boy names, AND 3 girl names. What, you thought I’d let you off easy? Do I EVER let you off easy on the last one? I think NOT.)

Oh, stop your complaining. Three’s not THAT bad — at least I didn’t pick NINE or FOURTEEN or PI.

(Ooh. Pie. Now THERE’s a thought…)

  11. Okay, I am in from the sweltering humidity and I suppose it’s a good time for me to answer my own questions!

    1. Three really great gifts: our water cooler (we use every day), a pearl drop necklace from BDH for our wedding, and my big stand mixer.
    2. I cry over animals, babies, and some really well written movies/TV shows. Less so now that the hormones are done, but still…
    3. Well, let’s see. I’ve been disappointed by Pirates of the Caribbean 2 and 3, and any movie by Guy Ritchie.
    4. I love Much Ado About Nothing, Pride and Prejudice (the Colin Firth version) and Love, Actually. And Serenity. And…
    5. Potatoes, green beans, and peas. And tomatoes.
    6. The three prettiest things I can see right now are Opus, Cinnamon and Lucy. All snoozing on the daybed.
    7. Bananas can be made into bread and muffins, and mixed into curry.
    8. I want to have children, travel/live abroad, and have a cottage on the water where we spend our summers.
    9. I think we’ll go with basil, parsley and thyme, but I am always open to suggestions.
    10. Well I want your ideas… that’s why I asked you!

  12. 1. Other than my children…a hammock swing for mother’s day, my I love mom mug made by my daughter, my new wooden rocking chair we got for Christmas.

    4. Princess Bride, Dirty Dancing,Miss Congeniality.
    5. Tomatoes, sweet potatoes, beet greens.

    9. Chives, mint, basil.

  13. Play is definitely what I would like to do after the day I had.
    I forgot to mention the names Audrey, Eleanor both family names
    My mom would be upset if I did not mention Audrey she always wanted someone named after her although her nickname was Toots,I don’t recommend that.

  14. You know, the really crazy thing is that despite the fact I apparently come from another planet, our languages seem to use similar alphabets, even if the vowels are different. I mean, really, what are the odds?
