10 Things That Make Me Happy.

I got this idea from my friend Caron's blog, I have A Piece Of News For You.

10. Ice Cream. My favorite flavor is Butter Pecan, but there are not very many flavors I would turn down.

9. Pizza. Like with ice cream, there are not many that I would turn down. My favorite is sausage and pepperoni on a thin crust.

8. Reading. I have always enjoyed reading. My Dad once told me that my grades in school should have been better because of all my reading. He was right about that. I just didn't want to read what my teachers wanted me to.

7. Comic Books. I still enjoy reading comic books as much as when I was younger, but my tastes have changed considerably. In future posts I will talk about what books I currently read.

6. Cemeteries. I like walking through cemeteries, looking at the stones and the designs that some have. I find it peaceful and relaxing. When the weather gets nicer I am going to take some pictures of some headstones and post it here.

5. Chicago Cubs. I have been rooting for them since 1969. Hopefully they will be in the World Series sometime before I die.

4. History and Historical Sites. My favorite historical period is the Civil War. One of the great things about living here is there are so many sites around here. I will also be posting pictures from those sites later this year.

3. Puzzles. I like doing all sorts of puzzles, jigsaw, crossword, and various word puzzles. I think it keeps my mind sharp. Of course, there are those who would make the argument that I have no mind.

2. Baseball Cards. I like telling people that I collect baseball cards and comic books. I haven't grown up yet and I'm too old to do it now.

1. Babylon 5. Babylon 5 is my all time favorite show. Obviously, since the title of this blog comes from it. One of the many things that I like about it is it told a complete story. You see that more now but it was one of the first to do it.

I don't know if you've heard yet, but one of the projects JMS will be doing at DC will be B5-related.

I hadn't heard that. I am looking forward to it.

But...what's your favorite comic book?

Howard Bagby said...

My favorite comic book is Fables. I sense a post coming about it next week.

I like butter pecan and cemeteries and Deep Space Nine and the Cubs. You got a lot of posting ideas from this!

Howard Bagby said...

Thank you for the idea Caron. Not only did I come up those ideas, I will be doing periodic 10 lists.

The Chicago Cubs make you happy?? You are more disturbed than I ever imagined *grin*

Howard Bagby said...

Dana, that is the nicest thing you have ever said about me. Thank you.
