Monday musings... What's in your top 3?


Brandi from Running on Words and Wine always finds the best tags and I decided to join in this one.

WHAT'S IN YOUR TOP 3?







Three foods I hate and refuse to eat
broccoli rabe (different than regular broccoli and probably the only vegetable I don't like), clams with stomachs, oysters

Three foods I love and eat more of than I should
cheese, french fries, bread


Three chores I avoid until absolutely necessary
vacuuming, washing windows, ironing

Three chores I always do
dishes, laundry, feed the pets/walk the dogs

Three wardrobe staples
sneakers, sweatpants, tank tops

Three things I don’t spend money on
make up, jewelry, clothes

Three things I do spend money on
good food, pets, books

Three TV shows I frequently watch in reruns
Big Bang Theory, Rick & Morty, Bob’s Burgers

Three movies I love (that might surprise you)
Clueless, The Princess Diaries, anything ultra violent - like assassin movies (but not serial killer horror type violence)

Three genres I generally don’t read
non-fiction, fantasy, sci-fi

Three things I’m looking forward to this year
traveling, swimming in my pool in the summer, bathroom remodel

  1. I won't touch oysters either. Don't like clams for the most part, but they are marginally better than oysters which is not saying much. Barf! I love assassin type/action movies as well, and Clueless is a classic, IMO, lol. Just watched it again about a month ago. I generally don't read non-fiction, but I love fantasy, mostly urban fantasy, and some sci-fi. Great post, Karen! :)

    1. I'll eat fried clams or clam cakes but NO stomachs. It's like eating a wad of sand lol

      Clueless is a classic! But I think some people would be surprised that I like it lol

      I do like UF but straight up fantasy is tough fo rme. I'm always lost or bored.

  2. I hate seafood in general, so I can't even imagine trying to eat a clam or oyster. Bleh.

    I don't like sneakers! Flip flops all the way! But I do agree about sweatpants :-P

    1. I like salmon and white fish but not fishy things like oysters, octopus, calamari...

  3. IRONING IS THE PITS! LOL.

    Of course, I looove seafood (never tried oysters though. They're too thick for my tastes...and most of all, they're EXPENSIVE, so no-no), make-up and sci-fi books. We have to clash on something, don't we? 😉

    As for your movie choices - I should be surprised but I am not. I mean, as an old follower who knows you have eclectic tastes in that department!

    1. I iron MAYBE once a year lol

      I like most filet type fish and scallops but that's fairly new. I used to hate all seafood. But mussels, oysters and all that stuff is too thick and chewy/slimy. ugh

      The movie question was the hardest for me because I'm not a huge movie buff. I go to a lot at the theatre but then I'm over it. I don't watch the same movie multiple times unless it happens to be on.

  4. I don't like bread, but HOORAY FOR CHEESE AND FRENCH FRIES (I LIKE MINE CRISPY AND SPICY). <3 Yes to sneakers, too. I only have 1 pair now, but I wear them whenever I'm not too lazy to tie the shoelaces. Heh. AAAAND THE PRINCESS DIARIES! <3 The first one will always have a special place in my heart.

    1. In the height of laziness - I now have two pairs of keds type sneakers that you don't have to tie the laces lol

      And oh yeas! the fries have got to be crispy!

  5. Clueless is probably my favorite movie of all time. I just had broccoli as a side for my lunch and couldn't get past the first few bites. I feel like I'm starting to hate it. LOL. I should've put non-fiction on my list, too - I rarely read it. Glad you joined in on this one!!

    1. I love broccoli just not broccoli rabe which is super bitter.

      I don't love Clueless but it's one of those movies that I stop and watch whenever it's on and giggle.

  6. I tried oysters for the first time a couple months ago. I took part in a beer, sake, sashimi tasting event. The appetizer pairing was an oyster shooter. Bleh! I choked it down, but just barely. And I totally laughed at what you spend money on and what you don't. My pets get more stuff than I do. More times than not, the Amazon shipment is for them. LoL

    1. I've tried them a few different ways because people always tell you - they just weren't cooked right! lol But the texture...ewwwww I can't lol

      Oh yeah. Almost all my boxes ore for the pets too lol

      Delete
  7. I WISH I liked more vegetables. Some are better depending on how they are cooked, but still! LOL I don't tend to read much sci-fi either (here and there though). I usually stay away from Westerns; they just don't really interest me.

    1. Oh yeah - Westerns too. I'm trying to test all the genres a bit more now that my arc pile is cleared but I still have my preferences.

      I LOVE almost all fruits and veggies and whole grains so that's pretty helpful lol

  8. These are seriously my favorite posts to read :) Also I love that Clue is one of your favorite movies! What a classic :) I can watch it (and usually do!) whenever it's on. I actually extended my workout once because they had it playing in the movie room.

    I hate laundry, but I feel I'm always stuck with it. The hell? LOL

    Hope you're having a great week.

    1. I love them too!

      I never set out yo watch Clueless but I get sucked in whenever it's on.

      Dishes and laundry man. It never ends and it's just me and my husband.

  9. Fantasy is my favorite. It always comes as a shock to me when I find out someone doesn't read/like fantasy, lol.

    I don't mind doing the laundry, but I hate folding it and ironing. I will avoid those for as long as possible.

    1. I get worn down by all the details lol There has been some I've liked though. I need really strong characters to connect to in fantasy - otherwise I'm lost.

      I don't love doing laundry but I'm pretty good about folding. My problem is forgetting to put it in the dryer and then it smells gross lol

  10. I'll do dishes just fine I agree with you on window washing though. Wonder why we hate it haha

    1. I'm trying to use the dish washer more but it's just the two of us.

      Enough so that I feel like I'm ALWAYS doing them but not enough for a full load lol

      My husband likes washing windows so at least i can pass that task to him hehe

  11. I just got done running my vacuum. I used to hate it, but now I don’t mind because I can’t stand a dirty floor. I do prefer laundry as well. Fun post, thanks for sharing more about you.

    1. With 2 shelties and a cat, not vacuuming is not an option lol but we have all laminate flooring and only a few area rugs so it's not toooo bad.

  12. Cheese and bread! Definitely favorites. :) Fried clams are okay, and I love fish, but no oysters or anything slimy for me either. And no calamari lol (was just discussing that on another blog, I've never had em and not sure I want to!)

    I don't read much non fiction either, anymore. And Bob's Burgers- I've never seen it!

    1. I had fried clam strips my whole childhood then one day I went to a seafood shack on the beach (as an adult) and they had stomachs & I almost threw up lol
      I do like some seafood. Mostly filets , scallops. I've had calimari and that falls under slimy for me. Lol I've even had someone give it to me saying it was an onion ring but I could tell the difference.
      I'm new to Bob's Burgers, mostly watching reruns at night but it's cute.

  13. I feel like you and I could find a restaurant to eat at quickly! And a bathroom remodel? How long will that project take?

    Replies
    1. Depends if we just repaint what we have or we go all out and replace the cabinets. I don't think very long once we got going. The floors/shower was done years ago so it would just be the cabinet (bigger - more storage) and the counter. Maybe repaint walls.

      Delete
  14. Oysters - ugh. I had one bad experience many years ago and that turned me off for life. One of mine is green peppers. I loathe them. Totally with you on the cheese and french fries! I feel they should both be food groups. :) Ironing - such drudgery.

    1. I just don't get oysters. Everyone tells me to just go fast but then why bother?? lol I'll pass

      I don't mind green peppers but they're so blah lol DO you like the other colors - red/yellow - or are anti pepper in general?

      I don't think I could live without cheese lol

      Delete
    2. Nope, no peppers at all. I think peppers should just be replaced with more cheese. LOL

    3. I'm not going to argue that logic at all! lol

  15. oh my goodness darling, I am adoring this post so much. I love seeing these small qualities and getting to know you a bit better. I shop for makeup and clothes, but that is because its more of a necessity than a want. But I have more workout clothes than nice clothes hehe (weird I know).

    Honestly...bread is my greatest weakness. So now, I try to just eat homemade baked bread since its at least better for you in the long run than anything you can buy at the store.

    Hope you are enjoying your week so far darling.

    Happy reading.

    1. I hardly ever wear makeup. I do have quite the collection of work out clothes as well :-)

      If you're going to eat bread - it the healthiest of breads! lol

  16. What a hoot! I love these questions and its neat how it helps get to know you better. We have some different answers on about half, but yeah, we could hang out in our no make-up comfy sweats, cheese-eating, none ironed trip-taking selves.

    I'll have to keep this tag in mind for later this year when I want to do a few tags. :)

  19. Clueless is such a classic! Bread is my top naughty food too, although cheese comes in at a close second (especially because I'm a bit lactose intolerant...sigh). HA! I wish that I didn't spend so much on makeup, jewelry, and clothes...well, not really. I kinda love it. ;)

  21. Eeeee clams. I didn't even know there were clams with stomachs vs without? I guess I've been a vegetarian too long. lol

    1. Yessss. I always had Howard Johnson's clam strips when I was a kid. Which is basically a tiny piece of clam and fried breading. So it was the fried stuff I liked lol

      Then I went to a local fresh seafood place when I was dating Kevin - took a big bite of my clam strip and almost puked. It was the whole clam with the belly and it tastes like dirt. Literal sand and dirt. It's gross.
