Thursday 13: Brought to You by the Letter "E"

*Idea from Alisha at Izzy and Emmy.*

1. Earplugs – I wear them to bed. I’m a light sleeper and Mitch snores; not a good combination.

2. Eggs – I usually eat them fried over-hard. Once in a while I enjoy them scrambled with cheese.

3. England – If I can only visit one foreign country, this would be the place.

4. Elevators – I don’t particularly enjoy riding in them. I’m a bit claustrophobic and often worry I’m going to get trapped in one.

5. Elf – Probably my favorite Christmas movie.

6. Encyclopedias – My parents have a set. I like the smell of them. They were quite handy in grade school; you know, back before the internet and all.

7. Emeril – Mitch and I used to use his “Asian Essence” seasoning in our stir-fry, but it is no longer made. This made me so very sad.

8. Energy – Where can I get more of it? I’m running quite low these days.

9. Escalators – I love riding on them; a much better way to get someplace than elevators (or those things called stairs which require way too much work!)

10. Estimation – It was quite difficult to work on this skill with my 7th-grade students.

11. Etch-a-Sketch – My sister and I had several growing up. Even my dad enjoyed playing with them.

12. Everybody Loves Raymond – I’m so sick of this show. Every other channel airs reruns of this program – enough already!

13. Eyes – My husband has nystagmus which basically means his eyes are constantly twitching back and forth. Some days they twitch more than others or faster than others; it’s quite interesting.

More Thursday 13!

I agree with you about the elevators and Everybody Loves Raymond.

My friend, Ian, has nystagmus too.

I don't know if you are a coffee fan, but I had Emeril's Big Easy Bold while in San Diego... it was with the Keurig in our hotel room. Love that stuff and I am not usually a fan of black coffee (cream and sugar was added of course), but i can't find the flavor in coffee beans... just in the keurig pots. bummer!

I'm with you on the elevators. I am not a fan. I could also use more energy! Great TT. Thanks for visiting my blog!

Letter lists are a time saver for me on my blog. Fun list. Happy T13!

Oh my goodness I *love* Everybody Loves Raymond!! ... but over this side of the world hardly any channel shows it and I've yet to see a repeat any time I come across it. Friends on the other hand ... *so* last decade!! ha ha!

This was a great list! I like my eggs over hard, too. It took me forever to remember that was what they were called. I don't know how many times I have had to describe them to waitresses instead of order them by name.
