I was given this F by ka_crow
(and I've been out of school for what feels like eons now ;)), and I'm supposed to list ten things that begin with F that I like, with a brief explanation for each.
They are, in no particular order:fire
-What can I say, the little pyromaniac in my head giggles with glee whenever I see a flame. There's something very primal, dangerous, and enticing about the hiss, the crackle and the smoke of a good fire, like it could easily kill you without effort, but won't, as long as you keep it sated.funnel cake
-a staple of boardwalks and fairs, and quite nummy. Messy as hell if they go nuts with the powdered sugar topping, though.Futurama
-One of my favourite cartoons, it had a narrative quality that I feel The Simpsons
lacks, and I like The Simpsons
had characters I enjoyed, some episodes were great fodder for thought (Godfellas
for instance) and some managed to make me cry on more than one occasion. (Yeah, I'm looking at you, Jurassic Bark
. Damn episode gets me every single time)foxes
-they're cute, crafty and are featured in the folklore of many cultures. Busy lil' things, aren't they? :)Flake
-bars of thinly folded Cadbury milk chocolate. They're crumbly and oh so tasty.felidae
-my favourite family of mammals. (also a hard to find cartoon) fencing
- I'd like to learn this, were I not in such horrid shape. (fencing with the épées, not building boundaries)forts
-they're neat, have interesting histories and fun to photograph and explore.Fifth Element, The
-I love this movie. It has a different sort of feel and pacing to it than a typical science fiction flick, has amusing dialogue and is just...fun.female pirates
-there weren't many of them, when compared to the hordes of males on the sea, but quite a few are famous, like Grace O'Malley, Anne Bonny, Mary Read, etc. There is also history of women pirates from Sweden, Norway and China, to name a few countries.
If you like, ask for a letter and I'll give you one.
