About Me: Stuff I Like

A few weeks ago, neighboring Etsian and blogger Amy of Ponder & Stitch tagged me in an About Me post. I'm to list 10 things about myself. I've done quite a few tags about quirks and other randomosities so, today I'll write about stuff I like.

Enjoy, and of course consider yourself tagged, if you so desire.

1. Breakfast food: anytime of day breakfast is alright with me

2. Blogging: I've been remiss in my blogging and I am so feeling it. I miss all of my blog buds and am looking forward to catching up on every one's going ons over the next few days.

3. Obscure, understated and cerebral films: Ma Vie en Rose, Ali: Fear Eats The Soul, Monsieur Ibrahim, Raising Victor Vargas and Before Night Falls are some of my favorites off the top of my head.

4. I believe firmly in the healing properties of dark chocolate, wheat beer and silence.

5. Hobbies, crafts and other time-occupying endeavors: They are a must to keep your grey matter from atrophying and dripping from your ears.

6. Anthropomorphism for 1,000 Alex: I can spend, er...waste hours minding the minds of my menagerie and stringing tales of catnip and carpet wallowing. Every cat in the house has a purr-sonality, a voice and a special talent.

7. ACEOs: Love them, love them. Did I mention I love them? They're like portion controlled art; all of the satisfaction of a huge piece with minimal residual aftermath. They're amenable to collector pockets and artist's busy schedules, alike.

8. Etsy: Etsy is more than just a marketplace for handmade goods. I have met some remarkable people there. Etsy, in a few clicks is: shopping, work, a drink with friends, a new friend, a new discovery, an intense debate and so much more. Never been? Go [here] now!

9. Humans: Even when they overwhelm me; as they have this past week-hence my absence. I can't get enough of the bipeds; I watch, I listen, I analyze. I'm thoroughly intrigued by humans. I keep my distance, but I can't curb my curiosity.

10. Old stuff: Old love, old lovers, old words, phrases, furniture, fashion, growing old (Yep, I'm intrigued and a little excited even by the changes in my appearance, outlook and attitude). I love old stuff, it hold secrets, lessons and character.

What sort of things do you like?

Peace

beautiful... your list was profound and i had never heard of aceos before, so thank you...
-i love what the blogger/etsy community has done for me... i feel like i have been in a virtual artist's commune, and i how that feels.. my soul has expanded since only may...
-i love standing on the beach barefoot, taking deep breaths, listening to the waves pound, being still - 4 of my senses are engaged in a most delicious way...
-i love knowledge, quotes, biographies and history... like you, the past for me is a treasure trove waiting for one to take the time to sort through it, examining each of its riches & learning from it...
-i love warm veg/fruit desserts that are not overly sweet - apple brown betty, carrot cake, fig newton cookies...
-i love seeing the look on my kids' faces when they have accomplished something that meant something to them... it means they are growing and learning how to feel the fear but keep going...

I have never heard of ACEO, thanks for the intro. Is wheat beer the same as regular beer. I used to hang out at etsy talking and what not, and then I gave it up. Not sure why.
