My complete bad! I totally forgot about this sitting on my desktop ready to be posted. Here we go...

List ten things, people, places, beings, thoughts, feelings, etc., that you love that begin with that letter and then post the list on your journal.

I got D from [livejournal.com profile] winks7985 and T from [livejournal.com profile] pezgirl7

1. Doritos tortilla chips - I love them! I almost always have a bag or two of different flavors in my cupboard to snack on (Cool Ranch and Spicy Nacho are faves).

2. dogs - I always used to consider myself a cat person, even though I was allergic to them, but ever since I got my puppy, Lollipop, I have changed my mind. I am totally head over heels in love with my doggy. She's adorable.

3. deviantArt (tapena) - This is such an awesome site to go to troll for great art. It is full of amazing wallpapers of any genre and type you could ever want, and wicked cool .gifs and icons too. Plus, I have my own art uploaded on here and it's cool to get faves and comments on them.

4. dracademented - A fanfiction.net author that wrote some awesome Harry Potter fanfic a few years ago. If you like your Slytherins dark but not evil, ship Draco/Blaise/Ginny, or want to see the golden trio and the rest of the self-righteous light side get some comeuppance, the fics are for you. They are pretty well written, have interesting and unique plots, and aren't too chalk full of cliches. I've reread them many times.

5. Dean Winchester - Not only is the character played by one helluva good looking actor (Jensen Ackles is so damn yummy), but he's got great personality, is snarky, and loves with his whole being. How could you not adore him?

6. Disney Movies - Oh, how I love these, let me count the ways: one - amazing art, two - cute little sidekick characters, three - I want to be a Disney Princess!, four - villains you can love to hate or just love, five - the songs!!!, six - wonderfully told stories with good (mostly) morals.

7. Dad - I love my dad. My father was pretty strict when we were younger, but he's mellowed way out since we've grown up. He's funny, loves the Boston Red Sox, and has the same taste in movies as me (well, mostly).

8. dragons - The quintessential fantasy creature; they are majestic and fearsome, beautiful and deadly. I like the huge, fire breathing monster types and the tiny, pet-size friendly types.

9. Diablo - Is a great name for anything, but in this instance I specifically mean the PC game. A good old fashioned hack-n-slash, dungeon crawler, with a passably good plot, fun action, and not too shabby controls, even all these many years later.

10. Disturbed - I own several CDs of this band's music. They play hard rock/metal, which is one of my fave genre's of music. Here's a few songs you may know: Down with the Sickness, Inside the Fire, The Animal - official youtube link (warning: videos are creepy) clicky


1. Tom Hardy - The man is beyond hot. He's played in quite a few good movies and I loved him as Eames in Inception. Plus, he's openly bisexual, which is so very awesome.

2. Toyota Corolla Sport - My car (2006 model, shiny grey)! My first car that I still have and love, even if I never wash the poor thing (I live on a dirt road out in the country, it's a total waste of time, trust me).

3. Tenhawk - An awesome fanfic writer, who is lately branching out into original fics through Amazon and such. He specializes in Xander-centric Buffyverse crossovers (with Harry Potter, DC verse, movies, etc.). The stories are very well written, often novel length, and have great, believable story lines.

4. television - Do I really need to say why? It is, without a doubt, one of the greatest inventions of all time. Full stop. And don't even get me started on naming T.V. shows that I love.

5. tigers - I have always had a fascination for big cats, especially tigers, ever since I got to pet and make friends with a baby one at Marine World Africa USA when I was about six. The walls in my rooms growing up were covered in posters and framed pics of all kinds of large, carnivorous, felines of all sizes. I still love them now too.

6. tamales - I love to eat these, especially homemade spicy ones with olives in them. I like most types, but I think the pork ones are my faves. We eat these Mexican food yummies every Christmas, and, you know, randomly throughout the year.

7. Tim McGraw - A wonderful country music artist. He has tons of great hits, and I love pretty much all of them, lol. Here are a few faves of mine: Real Good Man (my #1), Don't Take the Girl, Do You Want Fries with That, Indian Outlaw, Over and Over - clicky

8. tattoos - I have a total kink for tats and piercings. I love pierced nipples on a guy, so sexy, and hip tats make me drool. I have two tats myself: an angel outline on the back of my neck, and an outline of a wolf howling at the crescent moon on the back of my right shoulder. I have plans to get more too, lol.

9. teaching math - I absolutely love to teach math. I love math period, lol. My current job, is like my dream job (well, almost, I'd like benefits, heh); I tutor/teach math at a Huntington Learning Center to one kid at a time. Such a great job.

10. Tetris (I was tempted to cheat and put a 'the' word here, but I did not) - This video game is still one of the all time greats, in my opinion. It's challenging, especially at the higher timed levels, and it makes you think, and yet it is so very simple that anyone can play. We used to have Tetris Tourneys in my house to see who could make it to the highest level without stopping, my mom, bro, and I all played (I usually won).

Eeek - teaching math! (Sorry!) Math is one of those areas I do not understand _at all_ even though I'm aware of how important it is. I'm pretty convinced I'm discalculic as even the simplest calculations go way over my head. It didn't help that our elementary school math teacher was such a terrifying woman that students would literally faint when she called them up to the blackboard to do an assignment. She scarred me for life!

All in all, and awesome list. :)

Thanks! :)

I hated math growing up, flunked Algebra the first time through and had to retake it during summer, but once in college it all just clicked into place and made so much sense. Plus, I had great teachers and fellow classmates, so the whole process was tons of fun. Really ;)

If I ever got a tattoo it would be of a dragon. I've thought about one on my foot, the body and tail curling around the length of the foot and touching my ankle. Not sure I can deal with the permanency of it though :)

That sounds awesome! I love it when tats wind around the body, so cool.

I doubt I'll ever pluck up the courage, but it's fun imagining :)
