will not drink the milk after the expiration date. (see also: yogurt)

am the kind of girl who laughs at a funeral. (see also: other inappropriate times)

am a sucker for a man with dimples.

cannot leave someone a voicemail without sounding like a total tool.

overuse the word awesome.

love the smell of gasoline. And pumpkin.

am terrified of clowns. And masks. And children in horror movies.

think Franny and Zooey was J.D. Salinger’s best work.

hate feet, including my own.

will always order eggplant parmesan if it’s on the menu.

drink the same cup of coffee all morning, and occasionally will reheat it in the microwave. (see also: I am gross)

would rather eat the dough than the actual cookie.

*may* have teared up at the end of The Spy Next Door.

think Adrien Brody is kind of sexy.

have never been to Europe.

am on day 3 of my peanut M&M addiction detox. It’s not going well. At all.

am incredibly irritated when someone says Costco’s. It’s Costco. COSTCO, dammit.

cannot see why I would need to own an iPad…but I ABSOLUTELY NEED ONE, OMG.

love the words plethora, tryst, splendid, grace, exquisite, panache.

hate the words moist, goiter, soggy, orifice.

don’t know if I would be able to give up a physical book for a kindle.

scratch mosquito bites until they bleed.

still consider David Robinson to be my favorite basketball player ever.

would love to dye my hair red, but when I did it once in high school, it went horribly wrong and turned my hair purple.

have a thing for musicians.

have a thing for filmmakers.

have a thing for old sports cars.

should have majored in history.

think blue is the perfect color.

want to do dirty, dirty things to Jon Hamm. Even with his beard.

am currently digging The Swell Season. and Three Mile Pilot. and The Avett Brothers. and Noah and the Whale.

  1. children in horror movies make me afraid to have children of my own. if i ever do get pregnant i think i’ll have to avoid watching horror movies altogether. hahah.

    the costco thing would bother me too, we don’t have costco in this town but we do have bargain giant and it irritates the crap out of me when people say bargain giants.

  3. I’m frightened at how similar we are, just frightened.


    Comment by Jen on January 29, 2010
  4. Ha! I really want to use the words you hate because they are funny in a gives me the willies, too. Like I think we need to have a talk about the moist goiter in your soggy orifice (which I am translating into you’ve got a boogie hanging). OMG, I am a child!
    Anywho, my comment does have a point. I died my hair red once in high school – red henna in August in humid St. Louis. Put my processing henna-ed head covered with a plastic bag under a dryer for 25 min in my bfs 3 floor apt bathroom that did not have a window nor any air conditioning. Think Pipi Longstocking red. The next day was Lollapalooza and I liked it until I got home that night. Worst hair mistake. Evah!

  9. I love when people mention what music they’re into at the moment. Thanks for the new ideas!

    And I’m totally with you on the iPad.

  10. We’ve talked about this before, but I agree with you about Franny and Zooey.


    Comment by SciFi Dad on January 29, 2010
  11. Franny was basically an older, more refined version of Holden… and is the protagonist of the first half of my favorite book ever.

  12. I love posts like this. They just make my day.

    I despise leaving voicemails, I suddenly forget how to speak like a normal person. Well, I like leaving messages for my best friend, because there it usually off-key singing, ryhming, and attempted british accents involved.

    Also, iPad? Am I the only one that instantly thinks of “Always” or “Tampax”? Yeck.

  14. I won’t drink milk after it expires, my dad thinks I’m wasteful and nuts.

    I hate the word phlegm, because ewe gross.

    I love the smell of gasoline, so glad I’m not the only one!

    I’m currently undergoing a SODA detox, and my head is killing me.

    And I hate when people call Wal-Mart, The Wal-Mart.

    Happy Friday to you!

    Comment by melissa on January 29, 2010
  19. I just ate a whole fucking bag of peanut M&Ms. Retch. I can’t eat anymore for, like, the next three days at a minimum.

    And I should loan you my Kindle so you can fall in love with it and then snatch it away so you have withdrawal pains.
