I love flowers and bugs and outdoorsy stuff, and these three flowers hold a special place in my heart: narcissus, because they are beautiful and also because the scent makes me think of spring. Nasturtium, because they come in so many different colors and grow even in bad soil, and they’re edible! Nigella, because they’ve always grown in my mom’s yard, the seed pods are fun to play with, and because they’re one of the few truly blue flowers.
Dan got me a replacement ipod nano for giftmas this year. It is blue and sometimes I want to lick it because it is so pretty.

4. Neil Gaiman’s collected works
I’ve loved Neil Gaiman’s writing since reading Good Omens, and have read all of his books save the most recent one. And in the last month I’ve read the first two volumes of The Absolute Sandman (one I gave Dan a couple of years ago, another he got for giftmas this year) and absolutely loved them. Neil Gaiman, you are teh awesome.
We don’t have cable. Instead, we have opted to use Netflix for the past several years. For the most part, this has been a good working relationship. We can get movies and TV shows that we want to see, delivered to our house, and we send them back without having to pay for shipping. What’s not to like?
Less fuzzy than a peach, more flavorful than a plum or an apricot, I loves me some nectarines when they’re in season.
Walnuts. Cashews. Pistachios. Pecans. I love them all. Plus, I’ve discovered that if I eat a small handful of walnuts every day (as in, 5 or 6 walnut halves) my skin stays nearly clear! It’s amazing, truly.
I’ve made no secret of my love for names. Some of the names I like even start with N, like Natalie and Nathaniel. And my least favorite name (after Azzzz-pen, of course): Nevaeh.
One of the coolest things about nature is finding math in the least expected places. Nautiloids are sea creatures that use fractals/the fibonacci sequence in the building of their chambered homes. Plus, they look really cool. One day, I’m going to knit one.
I’ve loved marine mammals all my life, and the narwhal is no exception. It has a horn! Like a unicorn! and it’s a mammal that lives in the sea! How cool is that?
