Letter C
Meme, from madame_urushiol: here are ten things I like/love that begin with the letter C.

CHEESE, my favorite food in the world.

COGNAC, one of my favorite things to drink.

CHEEVER, as in John, my favorite short story writer right next to Alice Munro.

CLOUDS, my favorite natural element.

CHOPIN (wasn't there a song about that?)

COLD WAR, my favorite period in history.

CALENDARS I never used to use them, but ever since I started my daily habit-tracking I've been calendar-obsessed, shopping for the perfect wall calendar in every bookstore and gift shop I see, trying to justify a wall calendar for my office, a desk calendar to have at home, page-a-day calendars just to sprinkle around in decorative fashion...

CELLO, my favorite musical instrument.

CATHOLICISM To my surprise and everybody else's, I went back to the church in which I was brought up a few years ago, and somehow it's still working for me. At least, that is, when I'm not flirting with Buddhism.

CITIES I never really feel right unless I've got plenty of other humans within earshot.

Anyone who wants to play, comment here and I'll give you a letter.

Cheese is my favourite food too! I bought 2 kilos of Manchego last Saturday. It will soon be finished! Manchego is currently my favourite cheese and therefore the world's best thing to eat. It used to be ewe's milk Wensleydale, but for some reason this is no longer readily available. Bah.

It's a sheep's (ewe's) milk variety. The only word left on the label is 'Reserva'. It looks quite cured. The price was £9.74 (EUR 14.4) per kg. Expensive but if it's Manchego I don't look at the Quixotic price!

Mmmmm, Manchego is yummy. I'm not sure what my favorite cheese is, but right now I'm really liking the new blue cheese from the goat-cheese stall in my neighborhood farmer's market.

Re: ok, letter me please

Not that I think it was fabulous, more like just fascinating. And when I say that's my favorite period in history, I don't mean the arms race so much as everything else that was going on around the world.

So am I!

Your letter is "P".
