LISTS

THINGS I LOVE THAT CROSSED MY MIND TODAY:

• Laser pointers
• Shakespeare plays that aren’t King Lear
• Saying the surname “Yamamoto”
The Wedding Date
Dermot Mulroney in The Wedding Date
• My dog’s perfect little face
The Garden State soundtrack—on repeat
Burt’s Bees Lipstuff
• Feeling a bead of sweat drop from my drenched hair during yoga
• Quinoa
• My nose
• Multitasking
• That I’ve been able to activate a long dormant relationship with my aunt, uncle and cousins
• The Husband
• My past (there’s no guarantee I’ll love that one tomorrow or the day after)
• My goddess-like yoga teacher
• Limey green
• The voice talent, Paul Michael
• A good sneeze
• That my eyes are grey
• That gray can be spelled two ways

My sample bag
• That I’m the oldest kid
• Space heaters
• Key Lime anything
• Folding laundry—whoops!—How did that one get in there? I hate folding laundry
Secret Mission Icebat the Ugly Doll
• Strange facts about past presidents
• Working for a behemoth corporation
• The strawberries at Whitney’s house
• That first “ahhh” when I settle into bed

CONVERSELY, I HATED THESE THINGS TODAY:
(Why do I do that? I was on a nice blogging streak: Here, see a nice poem to make you feel better if you had a bad day. Here, see all the things I loved today! Then I have to go and wreck all the goodness delineating a few of the innumerable things that irk me.)

• Corrine Bailey Rae
• Times that I realize that I’ve been scrunching my face, just speeding along the aging process by deepening the 11 lines between my eyebrows.
• Morning breath—it smells like rotten lettuce
• Pregnancy photo shoots (sorry if that one is an insult to, well, to everyone; I’ve got a nasty habit of doing that)
• Vacuuming
• Mopping
• Toilet-cleaning
• Dusting
• All other cleaning verbs
• The concept of going to the Post Office
• Cold

(Well at least that list was smaller than the Love list. That there is a step in the right direction.)

Hey! I hate most of those things too! Like pregnancy photo shoots and Corinne Ray (I don't think people should be allowed to have that many names unless they are REALLY cool. And she isn't).

Also, I hate cleaning right now. I hate it so much that I am hiring someone to clean my whole house in April. You should do it too.

I'm so out of the loop...who is Corinne Ray somebody? And the only reason you hate cleaning is because you have to - Mark is coming home. Other than that I know you just LOOOVVVE it.

Did I miss something? Corinne Bailey Rae who? Also, you have lovely thoughts, I like to be made privy to them.
