100 things I love, more or less
I'm so mad and upset with my idiotic, moronic, self centered, can't think past the end of his nose ex right now, I can't even talk about it for fear I will say someting I will later regret. Suffice to say once again, he managed to do something stupid and irresponsible, but leave me as the one who has to suffer the consequences and pay the dues, because that is the kind of person he is, the kind who uses other people and steps on them, and then has the gall to wonder why they are so upset, after all he said he is sorry and he will try and fix it, maybe (personally I'm convinced that somebody kicked him in the head too many times when he was a kid, its the only explanation, I've met his mom and she is too decent and nice of a woman to have such a f*** up for a kid, after all his sister is doing fine to my knowledge). But that is neither here nor there.
Since it is my 36th birthday (how the bleep did that happen), tommorrow I've decided I'm not going to waste any more space giving my attention to him and the bad shit, but instead to focus on something positive. There is a meme going around where you list 100 things you love, but with out taking the easy way out and listing kids (a given!), parents, gramma's etc (no obvious), so it is a bit harder and actually says something about you. Here goes, in no particular order hopefully I'll reach 100.
Good movies on opening night with a large crowd of fellow fans
Any CD by MeatLoaf (I want BOOH III NOW!!!)
Rocking out to good tunes while cleaning the house
Fresh baked bread right out of the oven
Homemade spaghetti sauce, with my homemade meatballs
Cruising around with no particular place to go, just talking and laughing (this one not so much anymore with the current price of gas)
Laughing at stupid movies with friends (think MST3K)
Science Fiction conventions
Cold Mt Dew, Coke, or Dr. Pepper in the morning (I don't drink coffee, so I need to get my buzz from somewhere)
Sleeping in and not having to get up at any particular time
Discovering a favorite movie is on, when I hadn't expected it to be
Snuggling in a cozy warm bed when it is freezing outside
Pizza and bread sticks instead of cooking at the end of an exhaustive day
Riding bike to get ice cream cones with my son
Watching my son go off the high dive with no fear (I have intense phobias about deep water, however I'm getting much better on those)
Fruit Medley Tea
Diaryland, my buddy list and all the other bloggers I try to read as regularly as possible
Having a day off
Barnes and Noble
The smell of new books
The smell of clean
Angel Fire perfume by Mary Kay
Long hot showers
Long hot baths with a good book and some good tunes
Going out to breakfast with my son before work/school
Grocery shopping early in the am, when the store is empty and I am sans kid
Late night talks about anything and nothing
Going sockless in the summer
Sledding in the winter
Having my hair done
Explosions (the kind that involve nobody getting hurt)
Cooking (there is something theraputic about all that cutting, measuring, and mixing of different things to make something new and tasty
Big family dinners
My Aunt Maggie's farm (produce heaven)
Traveling to new places
Fresh cold watermelon
Days that go quickly
old faded blue jeans that fit my body perfectly
used book stores
Glasses with cartoon characters on them, or other characters. The good kind that McD and Burger King used to give out in the 70's and 80's.
Music from the 60's - 80's
Chocolate bars with almonds
Diner breakfasts (Eggs, sausage, hashbrowns and toast) with extra crisp hashbrowns
Hot chocolate with whipped cream and a peppermint stick
Guys on motorcycles, there is something about them that makes me go gaga (unless they look like rejects from the Hell's Angels than all bets are off)
My dad's class ring, that I never take off (the only 36 year old around with a class of '49 ring)
Flowers that don't make me sneeze
Fresh fruit ripened on the vine and in season (very hard to come by in ND)
Hayden Christensen or Johnny Depp
Star Wars and Star Trek
Outdoor pools on a bright hot sunny day
Unique pens and pencils (I have a weird facination)
Towels fresh from the dryer or putting on clothes that just came out of the dryer
Anything with cute cats
bras that are nice colors and don't resemble instituional contraptions (not easy for a 42DD to find)
hysterical bumper stickers
People who use manners (I don't mean hoity toity stuff like holding your pinkie up to sip tea, I mean basic manners, please, thank you, excuse me, etc..)
Flannel sheets and T-shirt cotton sheets
The smell of clothes that have been hanging on the clothes line during a light breezy summer day
The perfect cheeseburger. Lighly toasted bun, a small hint of ketchup, a small hint of mayo, lots of onions and lots of pickles, and well done (but not too well done) patty, with the cheese melty but not runny.
My mom's homemade stuffing, bread or almost anything else, my mom is one of the world's best cooks!(if you love down home meat and taters midwest cooking)
Those funny comics they print in StarLog and in the Star Wars Insider
Those little round peppermint candies
The smell of charcoal grills on a summer evening
I'm not sure how many that actually is, but it took me most of the morning (considering I'm at work).
Now if you'll excuse me I need to figure out how NOT to murder someone.
