Meme on the beach

Leave me a comment and I will give you a letter.
Then, write 10 things that you love starting with that letter.
Post the list in your journal.
Give out letters to your commenters in return.

tammylee gives me a B (after giving me a G just as feliciter did a year ago.)

1, 2 and 3. Bread, preferably Dempster's caraway rye that no one ever has, but failing that a good French, with unsalted butter and jam, or a chunk of Brie on top of a scraping of mustard laid over the butter. Cucumber slices and white wine optional.

4. Blogs. Without which I would have to channel surf, an activity too depressing to think about.

5. Books, but it's an ambivalent love. So many of them, so little time. But when they're good they're very very good-- take you away and let you be somewhere else for a change. Only dreams do it better, and books you can reread the best parts.

6, 7, 8. Burgundy-- the colour, not the wine. Probably the only colour apart from black that I still look stunning in, and that gives rooms a feeling of richness. Black however is a go-anywhere look-sophisticated colour, and I'm still very fond of brown especially in combination with white-- or brown or burgundy. (Blue OTOH leaves me cold.)

9. Botticelli, who painted the most beautiful women in, well, the western world at least.

10. Bach, but not all Bach. Am too musically inept to appreciate him, but have a sneaking fondness for Sheep May Safely Graze on Pastures and Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring.
