Lists. Because I felt like it.

I just felt like making some lists today. That's all.

A list of things I LOVE

  • Warren. Obvs. And family and friends.
  • Drawing, doodling, cartooning, journalling
  • Bikram Yoga, I've only just started it, but i LOVE it.
  • Popcorn.
  • Making lists.
  • Cute, unnecessary stationery. (to make lists on).
  • Taking a time-out from my computer. I spend so much of my day at my Mac, that it's super refreshing to get away from it once in a while. 
  • Good music.
  • Snail mail and packages.
  • Laughing at my own jokes. (I spent the good part of last night in hysterics in the kitchen - all on my own).
    (Warren enters: what are you laughing at?
    Me: Nothing. I don't know.... *shrugs*...
    Sigh, it's SO FUN inside my mind.)
  • Photos and lomo snaps.
  • Sushi.
  • Electric Blankets. Trust me, if Sidney Russell hadn't got there first - I would have invented a way to strap a heater onto my back before bedtime.
  • Sheets with SUPER HIGH thread counts - I have inherited this from Warren. 
  • Pet shops. Because, when was the last time you felt unhappy in a pet shop? Exactly.

A list of things I'm totally impartial to
  • What Paris Hilton wears, eats or in fact anything she does. meh. In fact - the vast majority of celebrity stuff I actually am not too bothered with. If something about someone famous popped up on my screen, I may read it - or I may not - but I never intentionally keep up with their lives.
  • The choice between cats and dogs

A list of things I HATE.
  • The complete disrespect of young school children in London who don't even attempt to make a path or move off the sidewalk for people who are much older (and sometimes frailer) than them.
  • When something in the shop says "EXTRA VERY INDIAN SPICY" and you buy it and then get home and are like "WHY IS THIS NOT BURNING MY FACE OFF?!?"
  • Food being tepid. Especially soups and coffee. Conversations in our house often go like this: "Is the soup ready?" "Well, yes - mine is - but yours will probably need another 2 hours in the microwave." I want that shizz to BURN ME. (Am into hot things).
  • Frogs. 
  • Cooking.
  • People with no manners or complete disregard for others. (see also delinquent children above)
  • Getting out of bed in the mornings, generally.
  • Those little pink sweets that are like tiny cylinders and taste like grannies moth balls. You know the ones?

Link of the day: some food for thought over at Midlands Musings.
Word for the weekend: Celebrate! Life, love, being alive.

I agreed most emphatically with you last bullet - those pink sweets are the WORST!!!
