Words MeMe

These are the words which were chosen by [livejournal.com profile] purdypiedad  for the 'words meme.'

Newfies: As is commonly known, we have a Newfie (Newfoundland Dog) as our canine companion. He is our second Newf, and we still miss the late Rochester very much. I grew up with a German Shepard Dog as our family pet, and Mr. Mav didn't have dogs, his family are devout cat people (we do have 4 cats here, by the way). When Mr. Mav and I were first married, I had a Great Dane, but the two of them didn't really bond. After we lost her, it was years before I broached the subject of getting a dog. When we lived in San Diego, we had a small yard on a busy street and didn't feel it was the right place for a dog. When we were preparing for our move up here, and had found our house, and it's three acres, I thought it was time to bring a dog back into our family. Mr. Mav knew I really wanted a big dog, I have nothing against small dogs, I just like big dogs. In order for him to feel part of the process, I asked if there was any breed he was really enthusiastic to have. He didn't have to think long, when he was younger a friend's family had a Newfie and he thought it was a great dog. So, mission accomplished, we were getting a dog, and a big one at that. Yes, our dog is spoiled, he goes to doggy day care, he accompanies us whenever he can. The one thing that always makes the hubs and I smile is that every single time we go anywhere with Fergus in tow, someone will always say, "That's a big dog." Really, we hadn't noticed.

Dance: Like many girls, I took ballet lessons. Unlike most, I continued classes until I was well into high school. I wasn't very good, but I really enjoyed it and it instilled a life long love of dance. I, naturally, prefer ballet, but I have a deep and abiding respect for dance of all types. Being not very good myself, I think, makes me really appreciate someone who is a good dancer. I absolutely love a show called So You Think You Can Dance, it's introduced me to styles of dance I wasn't familiar with before, mainly hip hop and ballroom styles. I love this show, I watch it every week and vote for my favorite dancers. I'm always thrilled when my favorites do well and I am pretty good at picking the best dancers. Each season (so far) my favorites have been on the final show, even though they don't win.

Photography: I have always been fascinated by photography and have always had a camera. I didn't really start taking it seriously until I joined the fabulous [livejournal.com profile] 100_snapshots   community. I've often wondered how many of the 'regulars' over there have upgraded their cameras as a result of taking on the challenge. I am always in awe of some of the photos I see there and aspire to eventually be able to take photos as lovely as those I see there.

Star Trek: That's right, I'm a Trekkie. I wirite really bad ST Fan Fiction (which I have neglected horribly lately).  We own DVDs of all the series and movies and watch them almost constantly. We've only ever been to one convention and that's probably all we'll ever attend. It was fun but more than a little overwhelming.

Sonic: What more can I say, I'm addicted. Mainly I go to Sonic drive ins to fill up on lime slushes. I will occasionallyl have a burger, but mostly it's all about the beverages.When we lived in the very small Texas town (before we moved to San Diego) I never really gave Sonic a second thought. However, when something that is a huge part of your normal routine is suddenly just gone, you realize how much it is missed. I am still thrilled that we now have a Sonic in the area.

I nicked this one from[profile] edith_jones .  As I understand it, I'm to post the photo which is my current desktop and write 5 sentences about it.

1. This is my current desktop photo, I tend to change my desktop fairly frequently.
2. The photo was taken with my 35mm Canon AE-1 Camera with the macro lens.
3.  Taken in my SIL's wonderful back yard, it's sitting on the table.
4.  The rock used to sit on my mother's dressing table, and my SIL once again shows her consideration by having this small reminder of my mom in her yard.
5. I'm the most boring person on the planet, taking a picture of a rock and using it as my desktop

So, I've been tagged by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] edith_jones  with this answer meme thing.  So, I'm going to do it.  Like [livejournal.com profile] cat63 , I'm not going to tag people, but if you want do it, I'd be happy to learn more about you all.

Off topic, I'm leaving on Wednesday for another of those lovely mini holiday/photo safari trips, the hubs has a seminar/conference or something and I'm going to join him there and turn it into a photo safari.  This time we're going to Seattle and, as is my custom, I'll be spending the days taking photos.  In the evenings we'll be visiting his family.  I've already decided to pilfer the father in law's photography stuff, and luckily, he's been putting stuff aside for me!!!!  Look forward to some urban pictures for once.  I'm also planning a trip to a zoo (the same one at which the niece was married last summer) and plan on taking a ton of animal photos there!!!!

I don't post memes much, but I like this one.  I nicked it from [livejournal.com profile] kiklei 

I've been absent lately, only doing a bit of commenting here and there, but starting tomorrow, I'm going to be better.  I've finally figured out (with help from my wonderful hubby) how to finish my current fan fiction story and hope to wrap it up in time for NaNoWriMo.  What do these two things have to do with each other?  My lack of inspiration and complete writer's block has had me fumbling around aimlessly about everything!

Now, on to the meme...
