Friday Challenge: My favorite things

Pure Friday silliness... and at the bottom, my first blog challenge!

Sing it with me now!   Don't try and pretend you don't know the tune.

My Favorite Things

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Stainless steel kettles and fingerless mittens
Amazon packages tied up with string
These are a few of my favorite things!

Yellow peonies and long-legged poodles
Peanut-less Thai food and Cantonese noodles
Checking my phone when my BlackBerry pings
These are a few of my favorite things!

Thunderstorms lighting the sky with its flashes
DiorShow mascara that curls my eyelashes
Murderous musings from one Stephen King
These are a few of my favorite things!

UFC fights!
Garlic hot wings!
Movies starring Brad...
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel... so bad!

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to write your own version of My Favorite Things in the comments below.  Let's see what you come up with!

Happy Friday!  :)


  1. Jenny, your blog every day is for me like a mini story. I look forward to it and miss it if's not there.
    It has become one of my favourite things.

  2. Jenny, this is so awesome. I am up for your chalenge but will have to go and think about it and come back. I agree with your friend, Irene, I love your blogs and look forward to coming home to see if you have posted anything!!! You have started something, girlfriend!!

  3. I know what I am able to do and not...can't do Favorite Things. I did sing yours. It's neat.

    Class at Gothem started. Looks like good group. Several have things published.

    I feel ike I'm in a Georgian Garden maze in Facebook. I can't find my critique from you. Arugh............ Nite. Hot and raining in MD Am anon only because don't know which of others I am. Ah, ignorance is not one of my favorite things

  4. Jenny, can't find question. Will look again tomorrow night. I'm in Chasing Publication. I guess I have to find a thread to get to your question? claire

  5. That was great Jenny! I had a good laugh! Here's my version: - By the way, for those of you that don't know - I'm the pregnancy cousin Mel!

    Big belly, weight gain and feet filled with water
    What will I bare, a son or a daughter?
    Punches and kicks that come from within
    These are a few of my pregnancy things!

    Giant boobs, and breast pumps that make me feel funny
    Hormones that make me cuss out my honey
    Constantly tired, with “pregnancy brain”
    These are a few of my pregnancy strains!

    Carpal tunnel!
    Bleeding gums!
    Even bellybutton pain!
    I simply remember the baby inside …
    And then I am not … SO STRAINED!


  6. Ahahahahahahaha!
