Boring lists

Things I like:
  • Finding hidden treasures at thrift stores
  • Weather that includes temperatures of 75 degrees or colder
  • Feeling competent
  • Dill pickles
  • The good kind of soreness that reminds me of the existence of muscles I'd forgotten I had
  • Free time
  • Driving to the music of Steve Reich
  • Quiet, usually
  • Low expectations
  • A good batch of hummus
  • Funny British people
  • Reciprocating kindness, or having kindness reciprocated
  • Large open spaces
  • Corduroys and strange polyester shirts
  • Full-fat chocolate milk
Things I don't like:
  • Drama (as in overreacting)
  • Herbal tea
  • Musicians who can't count (I don't dislike the musicians themselves necessarily, but the incorrect counting thing can really bother me)
  • Dishes that somehow mix fruit and meat (lime chicken does not count--it's a marinade)
  • The effects of procrastination
  • i h8 lazy txt speech dont u >:-( lol
  • Wearing jewelry
  • Attempting to dress fancy
  • Unkindness and/or conflict
  • Having to maintain a high-maintenance person
  • Black licorice
  • Very specific shades of blue and pink that make me want to puke
  • Finding my own grammar and/or spelling mistakes
  • Trying something new and finding out I'm not very good at it
  • Jazz flute music
Things I don't particularly care about:
  • Politics, for the most part
  • The fanciness of my daily attire
  • T.V. (except my three shows)
  • Romantic comedies
  • That whole flirting competition thing
  • Video games
  • Power and/or fame
  • Celebrity gossip
  • Sharing spit (ie. eating food off someone's plate, drinking out of another person's glass, etc.)
  • Personality quizzes
  • Analyzing the deeper meaning behind everything
  • Ironing

Does Heather count wrong? You can admit it to me? Also sorry Heather and I share food/drinks when in front of you I guess (not sorry in general).

Jody said...

I'm with you on many of these--ESPECIALLY JAZZ FLUTE!!

Les, I think you should set your "favorite things" list to music.
