What I Love:

Yellow Legal Pads: They’re pristine and crisp and less intimidating than white paper

Plastic Surgery Shows: I love watching people get cut up, and seeing the before and after. I also love the shows where people lose a lot of weight

Running: Especially when I get to the point where my feet ache and my legs are numb, but I dont want to stop

A good book, and a book so bad its good

Making bullshit lists while getting paid to be at stupid Pepsi

Mashed Potatoes

When people surprise you and do genuinely nice things for no reason

Crossword puzzles


The freckles on my shoulders: getting these was worth the horrific sunburn

Fall: I love the way it smells, I love wearing jackets

Realizing that I actually like someone I previously hated

People who are witty and clever, but not smug about it

Feeling completely overwhelmed, but then systematically getting everything done

Paying bills and having money left over to save

Standing at the stove and eating with a big wooden spoon right out of the pot


 Things I hate:

Cake: Not the band, I’m sick of being made to feel like eating cake is such a treat. It isn’t good; it tastes like fluffy sugar

Romantic comedies: especially the ones where a down-on-his-luck guy meets a girl who’s just crazy! and free spirited! and she changes his life!

Buying gas: I feel like I do it all the time, but I never have a full tank

People who speak very slowly and say nothing, but won’t let you interrupt. People who use far too many words to convey a very simple thought

People who talk on their phones in public restrooms

the word “restroom”

The way my mother dresses: Whats the point of ageing well if you dress 15 years older than you look?

Not the Beatles themselves, but the fact that ever saying anything negative about their music elicits a firestorm of “whys” and “how could yous” and “you haven’t given them a chance” People are more tolerant of my atheism than they are of the fact that I do not like the Beatles

When people look at me like I’ve said something crazy/inappropriate and I haven’t–at all

Fad diets/diet books and the people who seek out quick and easy fixes, then place blame when it doesn’t work

When people tell me I can’t (am incapable) of doing something. Especially if it’s something I don’t actually want to do and then I feel compelled to prove them wrong
