After reading Rachel’s post at Reservation For Six where she was tagged for a Scattergories-esque game, I was intrigued. Rachel had to come up with 10 things she loves starting with the letter T. She got a good many comments and others who were willing to participate in the game as long as she didn’t assign the letters X, Y or Z. Well, I like a challenge and she said we only had to come up with a minimum of 2 (even though the rules say 10) and I thought…well, I can do that! So here is my list of things I love that start with X.

Xena – my number one X. I love Xena, Warrior Princess. I’ve watched every episode at least once. The theme song is the main ring on my phone. Xena is my hero.

Xylophone – when my daughter was a baby she had a dog xylophone. I loved playing it and would play her songs on it. It always bugged me that it was too short and didn’t have a full scale on it. But yes, I do love xylophones.

Xanadu – Now come on. Who didn’t love this movie? I am an 80s girl. And guess what I just found out?! Xanadu is now a Broadway show! I so have to see this!

Xerox – anyone who knows me well knows that I love everything office supply. Staples is my favorite store. I was so excited to get my own flatbed copy machine, a used hand-me-down, but still way cool…and everyone knows that back in the day all copiers were called Xerox machines. ; )

X-men – I love action movies. Love, love, love. It’s not an X, but Terminator and Terminator 2 are my number one favorite action movies. X-men is definitely in my top 10.

Xenolith – I love rocks…any kind of rock, anything about rocks. I collect rocks, admire rocks, love the energy of rocks. A xenolith is a fragment of rock embedded in another kind of rock. I mean, how cool is that?!

x-ray – don’t like having them, but LOVE looking at them. I just think they are so darn cool. Looking inside the body like that. Yup! Way cool!

x-rated – yes, I have had an x-rated thought or two in my lifetime and yes, I love them. ; )

xanthan gum – one of the ingredients that makes gluten free baked goods bearable. So yes, I love xanthan gum.

Okay, so I don’t have 10, but hey, 9 is pretty darn awesome, right?

Of course! I could only come up with TWO for T, so I'm completely humbled!

Remember when copies used to be called "dittos"?
