A meme from my sister

I just noticed my sister, Karin posted a ramblings a few days ago and tagged me to respond. So here goes...

Six Unimportant Favorite Things, guilty pleasures or silly somethings, whatever you like that doesn't really matter to the world.

1. Getting the mail. Ever since I was a kid, making that trip to the mail box was a rush. A little offering of daily suspense. Ell and I use a PO Box so we don't get the mail more than a couple times a week, and I am super hyped as those mail days get close.

2. Weddings. I think weddings are one of the most amazing things on the planet. So much happiness, so much hope, so much future before the couple; I love it. I was lucky enough to be invited to two of them in the past month and they were both awesome.

3. Pulling weeds in the garden. At the end of a long day, or on a cool summer weekend morning, there's nothing better than the mindless cycle of pulling weeds.

4. New stuff I didn't know about. I found out last week that Great Lakes released two new beers. Hooray. And then I found six unreleased songs on my new Pearl Jam CD. Double hooray. I enjoyed them both together.

5. Posting trail journals. I know I just talked about it the other day, but that task is truly one of my new favorite things. It's so intense to be involved -- even from afar -- in such an awesome adventure. And to be honest, it's pretty great knowing there are scads of people waiting to read what I'm writing. (Even if they aren't my words.)

6. Extreme weather and witnessing the havoc it causes. This one's kinda morbid, I guess. I love driving rain storms and the flash floods they bring, or blizzards that drop feet of snow that traps cars and people, or the giant waves from Hurricanes that move literal tons of sand where it never was before. Of course it's sad when that destruction hurts and kills, but there's something so real and alive about seeing Mother do whatever she wants.

That's it friends, six unimportant favorite things. Now for the rules... Mention the person who tagged you, list your six unimportant favorite things, and then tag six other bloggers. Of course anyone can feel free to join in the fun. I hope you play along. Here's my list:
1. Adrienne. My strangely like-thinking friend I've never met from Colorado.
2. Kimmy. The smuggiest of the smug.
3. Betsy. My even-farther-away than Adrienne friend.
4. Angela. Awesome lady with an awesome husband and family.
5. Paul. The coolest cancer-survivor I know.
6. Kyle. This guy's gonna change the world, folks. Mark my words.
