You know I have sticky fingers when it comes to things like suggestion box keys, and cell phone records, but I definitely can’t resist stealing a blog post idea when I see a good one. Samara is worthy of all sorts of theft– particularly for her “21 Things I Irrationally Love.” Beth (one of my numerous sister-wives) already stole it and Angelle did a brilliant rendition but I figured there’s still some juice to squeeze from this delicious little morsel:
#1: Quoting Lord of the Rings for every life situation– particularly when I am late to things.
#2: Sitting in my car when it’s hot, with the windows rolled up– it’s like a free sauna, with comfier seats.
#3: Writing everything in magic marker (including this list, before I typed it up).
#4: The month of September. There’s just something magical and hopeful about it.
#5: Thursdays. For the same reasons as #4.
#6: Videoing myself singing Toto’s “Africa” while driving, then sending it to my friend Peeves. This happens more than I care to admit.
#7: Beautiful old doors. I need to visit Tunisia.
#8: Scaring people– especially people I love.
#9: Nutella, HELLO!
#10: Buttermilk, the world’s feistiest baby goat:
#11: Packing. It’s like a big puzzle. *swoon*
#12: Having the palm of my hand touched gently. My enjoyment of this borders on erotic.
#13: Searching for flights online.
#14: The sound of walking on gravel– it makes me feel like I’m about to accomplish something.
#15: The vanquishing of bullies (bonus: melodrama. Can you tell?)
#16:Dave Eggers, or (less creepily) anything he’s ever written:
#17: Sleeping naked. Doing everything naked, pretty much. Clothes are the worst.
#18: Showtunes. Especially whilst driving with windows down, singing very loudly and very badly.
#19: Buying gifts. I wish I could buy something for all of you.
#20: Telling people what they were wearing the first time I met them.
#21: The Royal Tenenbaums, ahh…
