Thursday Thirteen - Edition 43 for me

Thirteen Interests that
my DH and I do NOT share:

1…. Movies. He loves 'em; I can't seem to stick with one long enough to get involved in it. That is kinda strange since I enjoy reading fiction and can read for hours at a time. I think I just don't like for someone else to determine the setting and interpretation of the story for me. I want to picture it and hear it in my own mind like I do when I read.

2.... Seafood. His favorite; I don't eat it except as I need to for health reasons. Occasionally I find salmon that I can eat without having to choke it down.

3.... Sunday School. I haven't attended Sunday School in years. I enjoy church and independent Bible Study, I just don't like to be a part of a continuing group in a class. I'd like to see Sunday School set up with a catalog from which a person could choose a short-term class to attend and study a particular subject. There would be the potential to choose a new class every couple of months. I'd also like to see more intergenerational mingling in classes. I also do not enjoy gender-separated or even age-separated groups.

4.... Pets. He always had pets growing up and enjoys caring for dogs and/or birds. I'd rather spend time, energy, and money on almost anything else.

5.... Vacation Spots. I enjoy beach vacations; he prefers mountains, swimming pools, and cooler weather.

6.... Temperature. I am the cold-natured one; he sweats if the temp rises above 60!

7.... Time of Day. He's a night owl; I am an early bird.

8.... Food. He really enjoys vegetables, cornbread, and healthy food. I'd eat pizza and tacos all the time if I didn't exercise a little discipline. I enjoy fresh vegetables in the summer time, but I don't enjoy canned or frozen veggies and definitely not dried beans as a regular diet.

9.... Family of Origin. I have six siblings; he was raised as an only child (with an older sister who did not live in the household.)

10.... TV Shows. He enjoys sports shows and movies. I enjoy Dateline, 20/20, America's Most Wanted, 48 Hours Investigates, etc.

11.... Health. I am prone to headaches; he gets colds.

12.... Okay, I'm getting desperate to fill out this list to the prescribed number, so...... Gender. He's male; I'm female!

13.... Blog. I do; he doesn't.

Well, there you have it!
