Play Susie Q's, "My Favorites" Game!

Back in May (I am nothing if not slow and always behind that proverbial eight ball), I asked my blog friends to send in some personal questions. In a few posts in May and June, I answered all but this one.
Our Andi left this comment:
I would love to see a post of your "favorites". As much as I know you dislike posting a "list". It should include things like your favorite song, movie, movie we have to guess at that one, game, sport, book, color, ballet, Broadway show...that you've seen, restaurant, auto, get the idea. can only name "1" thing for each 1st, 2nd and 3rd rules.Then...once you create the "favorites game" you have to get 5 more bloggers to do the same thing. I love making rules!!! And you have to create a cute little "I played Susie Q's Game" icon that we can post on our blogs when we play.
Well, I KNOW you all have come to realize how little I like doing lists (A collective moan is heard across the land), but I will do this for Andi because I adore her so. Now, I will include a list of favorites and then ask that you, all my blog friends do the same! If you choose to, here is a little icon that you can click and download. I just KNOW you will want all your readers to know you played Susie Q's game. What? No? Okay, do I have to beg?
I now present, using Andi's guidelines, Susie Q's Game....
There can only be ONE, count it, ONE answer for each question. have to pick one!
I myself am very bad at this but let's try it! We will keep it all simple...just one little answer to "My favorite _______ is:" Uh huh. That's it!
I like to think of this game as an exercise in focusing on those sweet things that make us extra happy. We all need *happy* right? Even on a real downer of a day, there has to be *something* that could bring a smile to your pretty face. YOu know...your favorite things! At the very least, we might find out a new tidbit or two about our friends!

Hi Susie

So funny, my husband grew up right near Brian Dennehy, he went to school with his girls (all very accomplished musicians!)

Deb said...

I've been catching up here @ Rabbit Run Cottage, reading missed posts (and laughing all the while of course)! :-} Loved your "my favourites game" answers and your Brian Dennehy magazine cover :-} ... I am SOOOOO hoping there is a chance to get you that autograph in a couple of weeks Susie. I'll try my hardest :-}

Rebecca Ramsey said...

Susie Q! Now I know we were meant to be friends!!
I too LOVE blue, To Kill a Mockingbird, Little House, I Love Lucy, creme brulee, carrabas, Eeeyore, iced tea, Home Companion (my absolute fav!) and M&M's!!!
And your blog!

And thanks for the kind words about the book! I'm glad you enjoyed it!
love, Becky

Sandi McBride said...

Oh Susie, how did I know that the play you had seen would have Brian Dennehy in it? Just a lucky guess, you say? I love your list, and I love your answers...Little House in the Big Woods is my all time fave, too...and Scrabble!!! You must come and join Evil Sister and me in a hotly contested tournament to be held in December!

Barbara Jacksier said...

Now I feel like I know you a little better. I'd play the game, too, but I'm such an anarchist I really never have favorite anythings! I change with the wind. I love blue,but I also love pink, and then there's black... you get the picture!

Valerie said...

i shall do my bestest!

Sarita Leone said...

We would have great fun together, if we only lived closer.
