Five Things

A friend of mine recently answered these questions on her blog, and I thought that I would join in the fun.  I won’t tag anyone here, but if you feel like playing along, I’d love to read your answers as well.

Five Things I Have a Passion For

  1. Discovering what other peoples’ passions are. (This is easily my #1 passion – tell me what you love, and why you love it)
  2. Reading
  3. Writing
  4. Cycling
  5. Baseball, Soccer & Hockey

Five Things I Would Like to do Before I Die

  1. Attend a game at every MLB stadium (currently, I’ve been to 5 out of 30)
  2. Visit every continent (I’ve been to 2 out of the 7 so far)
  3. Drive the entire length of Interstate 90 (Seattle to Boston). Document my travels via words and photographs
  4. Attend a match at Camp Nou
  5. Complete a half marathon

Five Things I say A Lot

  1. “Yeah yeah”
  2. “Hey Babe” (when talking to my cat, Waffle)
  3. “Hey Buddy” (when talking to my cat, Cooper)

Now you all must think that I’m crazy for talking to my cats.  Oh well, I don’t care. *grin* Beyond these three things, I really don’t know what I say a lot.  I’ll have to ask friends that I spend time with and hear their thoughts on this subject…
