Thursday Thirteen #1

All right, so I'm trying out this Thursday Thirteen thing that people keep telling me to do. I have no idea if I'm doing it right. I'm just flying by the seat of my pants. So, let's just get this show on the road, shall we?

(We'll start with something positive :)

#1. Writing. That one is a no brainer. As long as I'm writing, I'm pretty content.
#2. Music in all its forms... Except for whiny country, rap and Emo music that makes my ears bleed.
#3. The band Nightwish. Technically, this could fall into the "music" category, but I love them so much that they have a slot all of their own. Tuomas Holopainen (keyboard player, lyricist, composer) is the greatest inspiration I've ever had.
#4. Wine
#5. Italian food
#6. Lots and lots of kitty cats!
#7. San Francisco and the surrounding ocean. This is my favorite place and the best area for me to get inspiration.
#8. Traveling with my friends and having crazy adventures. Road trips are the best.
#9. The smells of woodsmoke and eucalyptus. They take me to my happy place.
#10. Having a day off when I can sit around my house and work on my writing with no interruptions and no time crunches.
#11. Laughing so hard my stomach hurts.
#12. Experiencing new things and meeting new people that enrich my life.
#13. Feeling accomplished in whatever I do.

All right, how did I do? Did I do it right? I hope so. I'm am now officially Thursday Thirteen de-virginized. lol ;p


  1. A great list! I love Italian food and San Francisco too!!

  2. I'm with you about writing, Night Wish, cats, laughing and experiencing new people and things. Thanks for sharing.

  3. i like writing and laughing and traveling and kitties too. :) happy tt!

  4. You did good!! I'm glad you did a TT today :)

    Writing makes all of us happy, I'm sure :)

  5. I'm not much for metal, but I went and listened to a few cuts from Nightwish. I like the vocals on Amaranth and the symphonic style laced in there. Some of their other stuff was a bit heavy for me - just hard on my old, frayed nerves. I can see why you like them, though.

    Happy T-13!

  6. You're doing it great. You could link back to the home page, but I don't care if you don't.

    Laughing hard makes me happy too, but I have to be happy to begin with to get that. Sigh.

    You can find my TT at

  7. Yep, a lot of these would make my list.
