It’s just another Manic Monday, yall. Here I am. I’m mad because it stopped raining.
Today I was bored for a bit and decided to create a list. For those of you who don’t know, I love lists, mostly because I think I have pretty handwriting and often forget things if I don’t write them down. At work it’s even better, because I have a set of gorgeous rainbow colored pens (that were marked $1.29 by a very, very stupid woman at Target) and I have patterned black-and-white paper that has my name on it, so my lists are even nicer when I write them at work.
So here is a list. It’s a good one; I think you’ll like it. So, without further ado, here is my current Overrated/Underrated List (yes, capital letters!).
-Ketchup (both the condiment and the lame restaurant on Sunset)
-Movies starring Nicole Kidman
-Blackberries (I realize I am a hypocrite for including this)
-Stress balls (I always end up hurting myself)
-The following holidays: Valentine’s Day, Halloween, Christmas, and New Years Eve
-Ben Stiller (Am I the only one who realizes he plays the exact same character in every movie?)
-The Real World (not the hopelessly out of date MTV reality show. Actually wait, yes, that too, but also, the whole paying-rent, work-from-9-to-5, sticking-to-a-budget, doing-your-own-laundry thing.)
-Real mail (not email. Real mail comes with a stamp.)
-The Ameci’s Pizza lunchtime deal (for something ridiculous like $4.79, you get a bowl of soup or a salad, two pieces of delicious cheese pizza, and a drink. They give it away at Ameci’s, I swear.)
-Blackberry Brickbreaker (I know someone who is ranked #7 in the country)
-Mayonnaise (It gets a bad rap. Why, I don’t know. It is so delicious on sammiches.)
-Pilot Precise Rolling Ball Pens
-Proper spelling, grammar, and punctuation
-Fingerless gloves (my new must-have winter accessory).
-Soy sauce. (Obviously my favorite condiment on earth.)
-Blogging. (I live to blog! [said in the same way as “I live to frolf!”] If you got that, you’re brilliant and I love you.)
That’s all for the list right now, but no doubt I will be adding things to it fairly regularly. I liked making this list, so look forward to other lists to come. I’m also open for suggestions.
I obviously have to end by wishing Floff a very happy birthday. 23! Wow, you are old. I can’t believe it’s been a year since we spent your 22nd birthday weekend in San Francisco, where the entire Floff Family +1 went to that Mexican restaurant for dinner, where the chef personally came out and circled every item on the menu that did not have cilantro in it. I can’t believe it’s been a year since we saw Jersey Boys and sang “who loves you pretty baby” to each other all night long. I can’t believe it’s been a year since Club Slide, where you chickened out and I didn’t (I am brave!) and slid down that long slide, into the club, where we made Michael buy us martinis and danced all night. And I certainly can’t believe it’s been a year since brunch at Lulus, where I ate the most delicious Eggs Benedict I have ever eaten in my entire life. I will spend the rest of my days here on this earth searching for hollandaise and English Muffins as magical as those at Lulus.
But I digress. Happy Birthday to my Floff!
