M is For ...
Macaroon - a favorite cookie for Rich (I like them too)
Macintosh - The world's best computer (especially since Mac OS X)
Mac OS - Mac OS has been my favorite desktop system since I started working for Apple in 1986..
Mac OS X - My current operating system. The Mac look plus Unix underpinnings. Mac OS X: It Just Works.
Magnet - I've always been fascinated by magnets. I have a large collection. Just keep them away from floppy disks :-)
Maine Coon - One of the very best breeds of cat. Maine Coons are large and fluffy with big feet, "well-furnished" ears, sweet voices, and plumey tails.
Malachite - one of my favorite semi-precious stones, malachite is vivid green with darker green bands and circles.
Maroon - One of my favorite colors.
Maryland - I went to graduate school in Microbiology at the University of Maryland, College Park. I met Rich while I was living in Maryland.
Mensa - I am a member of Mensa., as is Rich. That's how we met.
Mezzaluna - Our lovely girlcat, the princess in white boots.
Microbiology - I have B.S. and M.S degrees in Microbiology. Although I have never been a professional microbiologist, the background helped me land three scientific programming jobs.
Molasses - My grandmother put molasses on oatmeal. I don't do that. However, I do have a delightfully tasty molasses ginger cookie recipe.
M&Ms - Now available (again) in Dark chocolate. YUM!
Murder mysteries - One of my favorite fiction genres for reading.
Myopia - I've been myopic (nearsighted) for most of my life. Now, as I'm getting older, my prescription doesn't change much from year to year. On the other hand, I now have presbyopia to add to the myopia and astigmatism. Thank goodness for progressive multifocal lenses.
My oh my - M is also for Mellifluous, Meticulous, Metallurgy, Mea Culpa, Macabre, Macaw, Macadamia nuts, Macbeth, Machiavellian, Molecular, Mollusk, Molybdenum, and Moon.
