I love you, Dr Johnson, and I want to have your babies.

I love Scattergories¹. I rule at Scattergories². I love being given a letter and having to come up with words that start with that letter³.

So the dealio with this meme is:

You leave a comment on this post, and I'll assign you a letter. You write about ten things you love that begin with your assigned letter, and post it at your place. When people comment on your list, you give them a letter, and the chain continues on and on.

Allthewine did N, and gave me the letter B.

  1. Breakfast. The best meal of the day, any time of the day.
  2. Borders Books & Music. Because it's based in Ann Arbor. W00t!
  3. Boeuf bourguignon. I have a recipe for Crock-Pot boeuf bourguignon, but it hasn't gotten around to making itself yet.
  4. Blogging. It may not seem like I like it, but I do! When I can think of something to write about, I enjoy it!
  5. Bunnies!
  6. Brownies.
  7. Butter. In brownies.
  8. BACON!
  9. Belching Blackadder.

    Prince George: Got a bit stuck, have you?

    Edmund: I'm sorry, sir. It's five hours later, and I've got every word in the English language except 'a' and 'aardvark' still to do. And I'm not very happy with my definition of either of them.

    Prince George: Well, don't panic, Blackadder, because I have some rather good news.

    Edmund: Oh, what?

    Prince George: Well, we didn't take 'no' for an answer, and have, in fact, been working all night. I've done 'B'.

    Edmund: Really? And how have you got on?

    Prince George: Well, I had a bit of trouble with 'belching', but I think I got it sorted out in the end. (burps) Oh no, there I go again! (laughs)

    Edmund: You've been working on that joke for some time, haven't you, sir?

    Prince George: Well, yes, I have, as a matter of fact, yes.

    Edmund: Since you started...

    Prince George: Basically.

    Edmund: So, in fact, you haven't done any work at all?

    Prince George: Not as such, no.

    - "Ink and Incapability"
  10. Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.

¹ Which now that I write it out, looks like some particularly disgusting genre of slasher movie.

² Actually, I don't rule. I don't really win any more than anyone else, which I enjoy because it keeps me competitive. I do rule at Trivial Pursuit, and I object to this new 25th anniversary version of Trivial Pursuit with different question levels, because I think it will handicap Trivial Pursuit geniuses and bring us down to the level of the rest of you proles.

³ My secret Scattergories strategy (which I'm sharing with you with the understanding that if we meet each other and play Scattergories in real life, you will not copy from me and use this answer, thus negating my huge score) is to hope that when a C is rolled, there will be a category on the card in which I can insert Carrie Chapman Catt, and get three points, because she has a lot of Cs and no one besides me (and now you) knows who she is. Suck it, everyone who said "Charlie Chaplin"!

I would like to point out that it has been years since you last beat me at Trivial Pursuit and the last time you "beat" me, it was because you got your friends to agree that your ridiculous non-answer was correct.

I do not recall this, but it seems you are upset. Perhaps we need a rematch over Winter Break.

Bring it on.

Out of curiosity, where is "Stab into Christmas?"
