Do you know...?
I can do an L.A. Times full-size Sunday crossword puzzle in 45 minutes with no cheats, but I don’t know what pi is (or even if I just spelled it right… I think it has a Greek character). But here’s the thing… I don’t really know why that would matter.
When someone asks me for advice, I seem to find it impossible to sugar-coat anything… but give me some pecans, and I can candy those like nobody’s business.
I have never tasted coffee in my life… not even in ice cream, but I did, however, have a Hershey’s bar for breakfast this morning. It is not really my fault. I have all these leftover chocolate bars from the wedding I catered last week.
I read the 7th Harry Potter book in a day… but I don’t really remember what I read, so I have been able to read it twice since then, and be surprised each and every time. I’m pretty sure one of the Weasley’s died, and another lost an ear… I may have to read it again to be positive. Don’t spoil it for me…
I don’t really love animals. At least not like Skippy, who thinks that puppies are about the most awesome thing in creation… but I can’t abide abuse or neglect of animals. That commercial with Sarah McLachlan, has completely ruined her song “Angel,” for me.
If I got to choose a concert to attend, it would be that guy at the top of the post.
My only pet peeves are bullies and people who say mean things with the excuse that they are “just telling the truth.”
If someone gave me $50 that had to be spent on something indulgent, I would spend it in the iTunes store. $100, I would spend at www.bn.com. $500 would find me at www.bodenusa.com. $1000 I would spend at www.ballarddesigns.com. Or maybe www.apple.com. Or www.shoebuy.com. Okay, I can’t be trusted. See… all that money, and I didn’t even replace my broken dishwasher.
