This post, I assume, is not as needful as their posts, for I am not a reticent creature. I am not at all mysterious [which I've heard the gentlemen find alluring] and I am not aloof. [which has a charm of its own] That does not mean that I have not depth, nor does it mean that you know everything about me. It simply stands to reason that I tell you more about myself that they are inclined to do. But I digress. In short, I can only assume that you have a fairly good idea of me already. But my favorite things will come out on their own accord whether I devote a whole post to them or not. I will submit to their clamoring and give you a list. Here you are. I give you the echoings of me:

There are more. But I am a person of many favorites--you might call me exuberant, colorful, and easy to please. Aren't these things precious gifts?
