What are they?

I guess many of you have seen the Julie Andrews movie “The sound of Music” and heard the song “My favorite things“. In a recent discussion on facebook, this became a topic – and I started wondering; What are other people’s favorite things?

So, my challenge to you, the reader, is this; Condense your favorite things into only two and post them in the comments below. If you can make them singable its better – but no requirement 😉

Here are some examples from the song – Julie had the choice of much more than two though:

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens, brown paper packages tied up with strings, cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels, doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles, wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings, girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes, snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes, silver white winters that melt into springs

Unfortunately this blogging platform will not allow for anonymous article posts, but you can post anonymously in the comments if you want. There will be no censorship on the comments, so you can say whatever you want. Spam will be deleted though. If there are many posts, I will cut/paste the comments to a page to make them more available to all.

You can’t say its stuff like honesty, integrity or truth – it has to be something tangible or real world, but I guess something like facebook or flickr would be ok too. You can post a link to it, but not more than two – otherwise it will be automagically recognized as spam.

I have no idea if anyone will actually post anything, but here we go – please post below! 😀
