Counting Down From 10

I feel like writing, but don't feel like thinking too hard, so I'll give this meme a try - it's been making the rounds of some of my favorite blogs lately. Here's my version: 10 Favourites Favorite season: Spring, with fall a very close second Favorite colour: Turquoise, like a cloudless spring sky Favorite time: Sunrise Favorite food: Pasta with a rich sauce Favorite drink: Dark roast coffee in the morning; cold, buttery chardonnay at night Favorite ice cream: Not much for ice cream, but mint chocolate chip is my usual pick Favorite place: In the US (so far), San Francisco; abroad (so far), the Southeast coast of England Favorite sport: I'm horrible at sports. I love to walk and bike, if those count Favorite actor: It's a tie between Jimmy Smits and Hugh Grant Favorite actress: Julianne Moore and Sally Field
