Like, Don't Like

So I have a confession. Sometimes as I go about doing my regular stuff during the day, I blog in my mind. Sometimes I get on and just spew whatever thoughts I have unedited out into the world, but sometimes I think of witty things to say. The problem is, often I've forgotten them by the time I actually have a few uninterrupted minutes to sit down at the computer. Or sometimes I realize they aren't as witty the next day when I'm operating on a bit more sleep.

But a couple of weeks ago I had the idea to do "Like, Don't Like" posts. I was entertaining myself by thinking of all sorts of related items, one that I liked and one that I didn't like. Example:

Like: Round toed shoes

Don't Like: Pointy toed shoes

Like: Wheat Thins

Don't Like: Triscuit

I thought this would be a fun and somewhat clever way to tell the world little things about me they might not know, and would never think to ask. Yeah, I realize they would also probably not care, but in this world of Facebooking, Twittering, blogging, etc., we are all narcissists. I think some of the others that I thought of were more interesting than the two examples I shared, but (naturally) I can't think of them right now. Perhaps because a baby is destroying things under my desk even as I type this and a fluffy dog is trying to persuade me to throw her rope for her. I need uninterrupted time to be brilliant. Which explains a lot...

Oh, I like squarish-toed shoes, too. And open-toed.

I've done the very same thing--written a blog post in my head. Too bad I've totally neglected my blog.

Torn between square and pointy.

Good idea--now we can know what to buy you (and NOT buy you) for gifts. I guess you won't be getting any Triscuits for Christmas this year.:)
