November 10 10

I don’t like potatoes. I mean, I *will* eat french fries. But, you know, only the really really really skinny kind. The ones that really taste nothing like potatoes.

I am afraid of pedicures. Not only do I not enjoy having people touch my feet (vomit), I am dealthy afraid of picking up some scary toenail-falling-off disease. Also, I don’t like when people talk about me in other languages.

I really like (the now cancelled) Life Unexpected. I don’t care that Lux is in high school and she’s having an illicit affair with a teacher. I like it, dammit.

I am not a shoe person. I’m serious. If you offered me a pair of beautiful red-bottomed shoes, I’d probably return them to buy some sweet camera lenses. Mama needs a 24-70mm f2.8 lens. STAT.

I don’t really like Starbucks. In fact, I think I may have pretty much quit it.

Sometimes I say LITERALLY when I don’t actually mean LITERALLY.

I don’t think Friends has held up the way Seinfeld has.

I do the Thriller dance. A lot. In public.

I don’t understand the appeal of poker.

I didn’t love The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo.

I don’t drink mojitos. Or wine. or Fruity-tinis of any kind.

I will steal your cupcake.

I don’t like cheesecake.

I don’t change my sheets once a week. I’m an every other week kind of girl. Go ahead. JUDGE.

I love Showtunes.

I hate white pants, but would give anything to own a riding outfit.

I would probably do dirty things to Sean Penn. And Adrien Brody. But not at the same time.

I am the mother of a 4th grader who says things like this: Hey, Mommy, did Sarah Palin do the voice of Jessie in Toy Story?

I have never eaten Velveeta cheese. Or at Taco Bell.

I never buy my children’s school pictures. On principle.

I think that Hope Floats is the very worst movie. Ever.

I will not eat anything that swims. Or swam. Or hung out near the water.

Lester Bangs is a hero of mine. The real one. Although the Philip Seymour Hoffman version is pretty killer too.

I wear yoga pants even when I’m not on my way to the gym. Or on my way home from the gym.

I think that “Come on Get Higher” song is ridiculously hot.

I once actually said these words. In front of people who were watching The Karate Kid. “Sweet the lick? is that some sort of weird karate move? That line never made any sense to me. Why does he tell him to sweet the lick?” Holy sweep the leg, Batman! You cannot take me anywhere. I’m such a cream puff. Which, incidentally, is something else I have never had.

  1. Dude, Johnny Lawrence was such a DICK.

  2. Practical Magic is a worse movie. And fruity-tinis are fabulous. You’re forgiven, though.

  3. I am devastated Life Unexpected got canceled. Seriously.

    Comment by jodifur on November 10, 2010
  4. we can be friends. although I do kinda take issue with the mojito thing. Really? What’s not to love?

    Also, after you drink a mojito (or 4), have someone take you to Taco Bell. Seriously.

  5. I’m a little afraid of drinking something with leaves in it. It just seems wrong, somehow.

    Comment by ali on November 10, 2010
  6. I’m with you on pedicures, literally, sheets and Hope Floats. I’m going to pretend like you never said that about Friends though.

    Comment by Overflowing Brain on November 10, 2010
  7. We’re kindred spirits on wine, mojitos, sheets, cheesecake, shoes, and pedicures.

  8. What?!!! Life Unexpected got cancelled?! Gotdammit! I hung in there through the whole wedding debacle. I was on board with Base and his boss. I hate when TV does this to me.

  9. you almost lost me the potato thing (really?)but we are totally back together after the “Come on Get Higher” thing-smokin’

  10. I thought it was sweet the lick for the longest time, too. Maybe it’s because I was too busy rooting on Daniel during that scene.

    Comment by C @ Kid Things on November 11, 2010
  11. I was going to list the things I either agreed with you on or didn’t but really we will always be friends because of two things 1. our dislike of water based food sources and 2. our LOVE of One Tree Hill.

    The end.

  12. I leave my sheets on the bed so long that we’ve probably helped several species of bed bugs evolve… so THERE!

  13. Cheese cake? For reals? Whatever, we can still be friends.

    Comment by Heather on November 11, 2010
  14. What is this about Taco Bell???

    Comment by alison on November 11, 2010
  15. I feel the same exact way about potatoes!!! Whenever I tell anyone this, they look at me like I lost my mind… Is it so unusual?

    Comment by Hilary on November 11, 2010
  16. Sometimes the most fun friends are those you have nothing in common with.

    But really, potatoes? I could eat nothing but potatoes every day if given the opportunity.

    At least you agree with the fuity-tini thing. BLECH!!! I need nothing but wine, beer, and the one-time-a-year shot of whiskey to be a happy camper. And happy drinker. Because I’ve never camped.

  17. The taco bell thing is *almost* a deal breaker, but I still got nothin but love for ya, gurl.

    Comment by Allison Zapata on November 11, 2010
  18. hee hee you went to the Royal .. I’m going this weekend! 🙂 (and, I wear those white pants lol)

    Comment by Sarah on November 11, 2010
  19. The Taco Bell thing saddens me so much. You have no idea. I love the Bell.

    Also, I had no idea you didn’t like cheesecake. I thought that was WHY you’re favorite restaurant was Cheesecake Factory! WHO KNEW?!?

    Comment by Kristabella on November 11, 2010
  20. LIFE UNEXPECTED GOT CANCELLED?! I’ve been persevering, despite hearing it described by the TV announcer as a teen drama.

    I also don’t drink fruity tinis, mojitos, jagermeister, or any other ‘trendy’ drink. Give me a rum and coke any day!

    Actually, based on your list, I think we’d actually get on very well, except that sushi is my favourite food 😉

    Comment by Jayne on November 11, 2010
  21. I was just commenting to my husband last night, as we watched a Seinfeld rerun, that many of those plots wouldn’t work now, in an age where everyone has a cell phone.

    The episode we saw last night was about some kind of mix-up where they were to meet at a multiplex, one of them bought tickets, and they were each describing one another to a ticket taker. With a cell, they could easily call or text one another (“where are you?”) and that would be that.

  22. I LOVE Sean Penn so much. And I covet a pair of red bottomed shoes. But I’d probably never wear them. I’d just look at them. Because they’re so pretty. 😉

    Comment by Loukia on November 11, 2010
  23. Wow! I’ve finally met my potato hating soul mate!

    Comment by Mac & Cheese on November 11, 2010
  24. I adore you.

    Question… is Hope Floats worse than that crappy Lake House movie? Or The Notebook.

    Oh yes, I said it. I hate the Notebook. Despise.

    Comment by Issa on November 11, 2010
  25. You should fix that Taco Bell thing. That really is a problem.

    Comment by MonsteRawr on November 11, 2010
  26. STILL with the white pants? I’ve taught you NOTHING.

    Comment by slynnro on November 11, 2010
  27. Seinfeld is still the best – so true about Friends, am shocked that you never buy children’s school pictures. What principle? I thought everyone was guilted into buying those? Never had a cream puff? How about a cannoli?

    Comment by Mari on November 12, 2010
  28. Is Life Unexpected really cancelled? I sort of judge myself for not minding the Lux/teacher relationship, but I still like them. Oh well. I also hate pedicures and cheesecake and do not change my sheets every week. Fun post.

    Comment by Taryn on November 12, 2010
  29. it’s called on “onychomycosis” and I’m deathly afraid of it. and other people’s feet.

    Comment by gorillabuns on November 12, 2010
  30. Can I have the shoes?

    Comment by feefifoto on November 14, 2010
  31. We can totally be friends…I’m amazed at how many things we agree on in this list and how many we dont!!! My mom and I once ate at taco bell twice in 12 hours….I promised never to tell…BUT…I think she’ll forgive me.I’d have a pedi while drinking a mojito and burning the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo….I also love me some lester bangs and cheesecake…and I’ll eat it on my two week old sheets…

    Comment by Sara on November 15, 2010
  32. Have you ever seen Joe Dirt? OMG, worst movie ever.

    Also, I will take your red soled shoes and you can have all my coffee. Coffee…ick.

    Comment by Corey on November 15, 2010
  33. I have a riding blouse and coat that I’ve never worn. I’ll send them to you if you promise to buy yourself a pair of white jodhpurs. I bought them when I lived on horse farm on Long Island NY. But never showed in them.

    Seinfeld Yes. Friends – Can I tell you I’ve never watched an episode of friends.
