Reveal of the Day: Lists.

Things That Make Me Cry
Banana-flavored food.
The Chicago accent.
The end of We Were the Mulvaneys.
The end of Rabbit at Rest.
Thinking of those people trapped in those buildings who knew they were going to die.
Thinking of people I knew who died in dumbass ways.

Things That Annoy Me
Fundamentalists of any ilk.
Blind Republicans.
Waiting in line.
When the grocery checker waits to pack your bags until after your credit card has gone through, thereby wasting valuable time twiddling his thumbs instead of getting you out of there three minutes earlier.
Arrogant people.
People who are so sincerely nice they make you feel like a real bitch.
People who wear therapy as a badge of honor.
Slow walkers.
Chewing noises.
The harmonium.
People who are afraid of The World.
Misuse of the word 'literally'.

Things I Adore
Skirts with prints.
Gorgeous upholstery fabrics.
Craftster and Etsy.
Smoking cigs and drinking scotch.
My music.
Painting a room a great color.
Writing a new recipe.
Junk food.
Good bread and expensive cheese.
Bananas (the movie, not the fruit.)
Quirky, cute people.
Flirting while talking about cake.
Nice eyes.
The Well-Tempered Clavier.
The Boden catalogue.
Crap reality television.
East Village, NYC.
The gentle 'ding ding' of bicycle bells in Amsterdam.
People who are sincerely nice but still have a little edge.

a nabakov book about a sad, lonely misunderstood old russian guy.

that sounded really snooty - "a nabakov book". you can't really use that guy's name without sounding like a snoot.

it's the english major in me.

Oh Nabakov. Our love affair ended about midway through Lolita. Up 'til droning on and on about running away I was enthralled. It's one of my goals before I die to one day finish it, just to say that I did.

i have to admit, i love lolita too. but not the hbo version.

i had this professor in college (mary gordon, but you didn't hear me write that) who would always talk about her friends 'Vlad' and 'Toni' and it would bug the crap out of me. i should have put that on the list too.

...and the worst republicans are the ones with that awful genetic disease where you can't FEEL anything...if i knew the name of it....muuugghh....

I love these lists! Even though, compared to you, EVERYONE is a slow walker.
