DSC_6682 by you.

never change my earrings

laugh at inappropriate times, like funerals

am voting for Barack Obama

have a thing for musicians. bad

love the smell of gasoline

once kissed a girl

have never been to Europe

still hope that Angela Chase and Jordan Catalano will end up together

don’t really like chocolate

wear short skirts and knee-hi boots almost every day in the winter

had blue eyes until puberty. now they are green.

don’t know how to change the ringtone on my motorola pebl

get way too emotionally invested in the tv shows i like, like Weeds and Six Feet Under and LOST

am in love with Sean Penn

can’t remember the last time i went to the dentist.

saw New Kids on the Block in concert when i was 12. my first concert.

totally dig assholes (you are sick, sick people) i mean, like, you know, House.

  1. Well…Ali…I also can drive a stick shift, my car is a 5 speed…and I also think it is sexy. I think it makes me a badass, somehow.

    I love the shoes…but frankly, LOVED the ones she wanted. Puma makes a cute pair like that…I was eyeing them up this weekend! I totally get where Emily is coming from. If she starts settling for less than cashmere now, she sets an early precedence. Hats off to a girl for knowing what she wants!!

  2. I get emotionally invested in books and television, too.

    And get upset if it doesn’t work out the way I want.

    Ugly Betty is my current obsession.

  3. I get emotionally attached to all TV shows, movies, books that are worth while…my 1st 2 cars were stick & I thought I was the absolute coolest, sexiest chick when driving – ha ha, don’t quite feel that way when I’m driving the mini van – worst purchase EVER!

  6. GO TO THE DENTIST. I swear, if you get nothing else from our friendship, GO TO THE DENTIST. You live in Canada- isn’t that shit like free or something anyway? I keep hearing about your Utopian healthcare system.

  8. If you mention H&M one more time before I get to NYC, I’m going to DIE.

    Also, NKOTB was my first concert too. When I was 12.

    I wore a black ruffled mini skirt.

  13. I too love the smell of gasoline and don’t really like chocolate (ok, so maybe I like Reeces).

    I can’t drive a stick shift and would be a hazard to all drivers if I did.

    And I just made a dentist appointment for Oct. 22. Just so you know.

  14. I so badly wanted to go to NKOTB when I was a kid but no one loved me enough to take me. So I bought 3rd row tickets for their concert here in November! Yay!

  15. OK so it doesn’t look like I can order online from RW&Co. There are two skirts that kind of caught my eye. What are my options here?
    That reminds me, I need some new boots too.
    This is a great post. So speaking of TV shows – Have you watched Mad Men on AMC? Holy crap is that a good show. Hubby and I die a little bit at 11:00 every sunday night when its over. Its… the best. Check it out. Seriously I know you don’t need anymore shows to watch but It Is So GOOD.

  18. I also still secretly hope that Angela and Jordan Catalano will get together. ;)

    And if you like Six Feet Under (which is one of my weaknesses) then you’ll probably like the new True Blood show by Alan Ball. So good. Creepy and weird. But good.

  19. …and you are more like me than I originally suspected.

    ps- can you vote in USA? I thought you were in Canada , ay?

  21. I want to bite House and pull his hair. Not in a bad way, in the Rawr! way.
    I drive a stick shift. I, too, think it’s sexy.
    And I am waaay too invested in the tv shows I love (hello, can Boothe and Brennan just make out already? And yes I do realize that I’m one of the maybe 74 people who actually watches Bones but I DON’T CARE!)

  22. I think Angela and Jordan were somehow emotionally one of the best matched tv couples that people wanted to get together. I still want them to get together too.


    Comment by Janna on September 17, 2008
  23. Waaaay too invested in TV shows – like I cried during Gossip Girl on Monday when they broke up.

    Also go to the dentist. I have a serious fear/anxiety and it helps to just get it out of the way.That and Xanax.


    Comment by anne on September 17, 2008
  24. I love you. That is all.

  28. I get way to invested in musician’s careers. Like “WHAT?!??! MACCA ONLY SOLD 500k?” Who do I call to complain? Who must I call to rectify this? Rolling Stone gave the album 4 stars! AAARRGGH!!!!”

  33. Seriously, have you learned nothing from Stara and me? GO TO THE DENTIST!

    NKOTB was my first concert too. My SIL wants me to go with her in October because she didn’t get to see them when she was a kid. There better be a lot of alcohol if I end up going.

  35. I would love Jordan and Angela to get together. But only the Jordan and Angela of yesterday. She’s been to Yale or Harvard or something and he just wears too much eye liner now. I havent’ been to the dentist either. I was going to go, had an appointment and everything, then I saw him on the news involved in an extasy sting. It creeped me out and I took it as a sign that my teeth are fine and dentists are pervy. I never even bothered cancelling my appointment. I love this list!

  37. (Don’t ask about the girl kissing. Don’t ask about the girl kissing. Don’t ask about the girl kissing).

    So, you love the smell of kissing a girl? And you know how to use a stick kiss a girl? I too am voting for kissing a girl.

  39. I love knee high boots (hubby calls them hooker boots)

    Am so jealous you went to see New Kids, my parents wouldn’t let me go

    Have also kissed a girl

    Drove a white celica that was stick (felt v. sexy driving it) but sold it when the Tweedle was born.

    Also do not go to the dentist. But, I have never had a cavity so I think I am good.

  42. Oh, Jordan Catalano – he was the set-up for every emotionally unavailable rocker-type dude that I lusted for after the age of 14.

    was she wearing cherry chapstick?

  45. Sean Penn. Me too.


    Comment by She Likes Purple on September 19, 2008
  46. In my head Angela and Jordan Catalano DID get together. See if I love something but hate the ending or they never get another season, I re-write the ending in my head until it suites me.

    I also name babies in the movies where they don’t do it. It just bugs me when they don’t name a baby.
