Things I Like

May 14, 2007

For your reading pleasure, here is a list of 50 things that I like. This list is completely random and by no means exhaustive. Let me know which of these things you like or dislike!

1) Mary Kay Satin Lips – this stuff is so good they sent it to the soldiers in the gulf war. I think I am addicted to it.
2) The number 3 – just ask my soccer teams. They all know which jersey NOT to take.
3) Automatic sliding doors
4) Bike lanes
5) Mounds candy bars – Mmmmm. Dark chocolate + coconut=the perfect combination.
6) Chicken fried rice – I could eat it every day, probably. Until I had a heart attack.
7) The Pill – caveat: not for its birth control effects. (Edit: this is very outdated.)
8 ) Fat animals, especially when they are also furry
9) Pedicures – or almost any service you can get done at a spa. What can I say, I like being pampered.
10) Cruise control
11) Babies
12) Dolce & Gabbana’s Light Blue perfume – and the fact that my brother recommended it to me and my boyfriend bought it for me. (Edit: that boyfriend is now my husband!)
13) Yoga
14) – a great free internet radio.
15) The semi-colon
16) Caribbean Way smoothies from Smoothie King
17) My Franklin Covey day planner – I am obsessive about this thing and have no idea what I would do without it. (Edit: I now use the planner on my iPhone. It was a sad day when I switched, but I have to keep up with the times, man.)
18) Dogs – especially Molly, Eddie, Sydney, Teak, Riley, Susie and Kenzie. There are too many dogs in my life, I couldn’t narrow it down! (Edit: We’ve said goodbye to Molly, Susie, and Kenzie and hello to Cleo, Bentley, and Niko!)
19) Hot Pockets – ham and cheese are the best.
20) NPR
21) Songs that tell a story – Ex: “The Lighthouse’s Tale” by Nickel Creek
22) The Winged Victory of Samothrace sculpture in the Louvre
23) Foaming hand soap
24) Toyota Priuses
25) Gmail – as far as I can tell, everyone should use it. My favorite thing about it is that you can keep your inbox clean while still saving as many messages as you like with the “Archive” feature.
26) Tulips
27) Fortune cookies
28) Bingo – but only in the bingo hall with the serious players.
29) The smell of air conditioner in the car
30) Maps
31) The dead man’s float
32) Penguins – especially fat ones (see #8)
33) Macs
34) Reading on the bus
35) My eyebrows
36) Dark chocolate
37) Sneezing
38) Crossword puzzles
39) Gel pens
40) Tragic characters – Ex: Achilles in the movie Troy; Sydney Carton in A Tale of Two Cities; Sirius Black in Harry Potter
41) Singing in my car
42) Fabric Band-aids
43) Traveling to visit historical places
44) Dr. Mario – only the best video game ever invented. EVER.
45) Real Simple magazine
46) Lucida Sans font
47) Blue Bell dutch chocolate ice cream with Hershey’s chocolate syrup
48) Bananas – the perfect fruit: they curve toward your mouth, they are yellow which is enticing, they are color coded (green too early; brown too late), they are easy to peel, and they taste so good!
49) Going to the bathroom – ahh, such a simple pleasure.
50) My wash cloth, which I dedicated an entire blog entry to at one point.

Comments on Things I Like

  1. 1

    From Katy:

    Sniff. I love Sirius Black. =(

  2. 2

    From David, The Rainmaker:

    1) I totally told her to get Light Blue. All you ladies should.
    2) I feel like your like for the #3 should be listed as #3 on your list, especially when it’s so close as being listed at #2. Yes, I realize the irony in that I am doing the exact same thing.
    3) I’d like to add “her brothers” to this list.

  3. 3

    From David the Elder:

    NPR can only poison your mind young lady.

  4. 4

    From Dad:

    Yes for Maps
    No for NPR

  5. 5

    From Boyfriend David:

    I just hope Kat isn’t waiting to include people on the 50 things that she dislikes! J.M. and I are very upset that you didn’t include Moitle. :) And thanks for the Light Blue suggestion, David the Rainmaker.

  6. 6

    From Katy:

    OK, I know this is my second comment, but there is clearly something to this business about guys and Light Blue. This is like the 20th time I’ve heard of a guy liking that fragrance on a lady. Too funny.

    Right now I like NPR but not as much as Top 40 because sometimes it just depresses me to hear all about the horrible things going on in the world that I can’t do anything about.

  7. 7

    From Bill:

    Teddy missed the cut?

  8. 8

    From Jen Hope:

    I too love the Winged Victory of Samothrace. I saw it on a Tabor Europe Trip, and it was a powerful experience. Have you seen “Funny Face” with Audrey Hepburn? You should.

    I do not however share your love for bike lanes. After almost being run down by people in bike lanes countless times in Amsterdam, I now have an extreme distaste for both bike lanes as well as the little silver bells that go on bikes. (Which is such a shame, because I used to like them a lot.)
