A game I wanna play

Curiosity Killer had this on her blog and it looked like fun, so I decided I wanted to play. She was assigned the letter “L” and then assigned me the letter "T". If you would like to play, with or without variation of adding Things I DON’T love, let me know in the comments. I’ll assign you a letter. Here we go, Ten Things I Love That Begin With “T”, and 10 things that I don’t love that also start with “T”.

10 Things I love that begin with a "T"

1. Travel- my first love :) I just love globe trotting and jet setting! The more exotic the place, the better!

2. Tulips- they're so pretty in the spring!

3. Teaching- it's so much fun and I learn almost as much from the students as they do from me)

4. Thai food! I love it! Gimme a good pad thai anytime!

5. Theater- I love a good play or musical. One of my fave places in Canada is Stratford, Ontario. I love anything from Shakespeare to Gilbert and Sullivan!

6. Tiramisu- I don't have it often...perhaps once or twice every few years, but I love the richness and decadence of tiramisu.

7. Talking- to friends, family, students, strangers...LOL! I just love meeting new people and getting to know their personal stories.

8. Time with my husband. We don't get a lot of time together since the type of work we do and everything else seem to prevent us from having quality/alone time.

9. Tomato juice- I love it! Homemade is the best. It's so refreshing (and healthy)

10. Temples- when I traveled to Japan and Bali, I enjoyed visiting the temples there. I love learning about old, sacred places, appreciating the history and beauty of different cultures.

10 Things I DON’T love that begins with a "T"

1. Toes and toe nails really freak me out. I know I'm weird, but I think they're creepy looking.

2. Thistle- I don't like the way it scratches my legs when I walk in the fields

3. Tests- I know I'm a teacher and I sometimes give students tests, but I've never been one to do well under pressure. I get a bit of anxiety when taking tests. My driving test...yeah, let's not talk about that! LOL!

4. Trucks- I hate driving behind, in front of, or next to big trucks on the highway. They just freak me out.

5. Trailers (movie trailers) on DVDs and in the cinemas. I just want to watch the darn movie...forget the previews for the other movies!

6. Tom Cruise- I don't know why. I used to love him as an actor. Now he just seems so one dimensional and...weird.

7. Tar- well, more like the smell of it. It gives me a headache.

8. Tamarind- it's a delicacy in my mom's country, but I don't know why I'm not the biggest fan of it. It's kind of sticky and sweet and sour at the same time.

9. Thieves- I can't stand it when people steal things or take things that don't belong to them. Fortunately, I've never been a victim of theft, but I don't see how anyone can take something that's not theirs.

10. Toast- I'm not a big bread eater like hubby is. He grew up eating bread with every meal.

*An honorable mention goes out to 'tarantulas'. I HATE spiders and all kinds of creepy crawlies!

If you would like to play, with or without variation of adding Things I DON’T love, let me know in the comments. I’ll assign you a letter. Have fun!!
