Things I like to put in lists. (a post from paris!)Posted: December 30, 2009
I believe in alliteration.
I believe in saying please and thank you and being nice to low paid service workers, even and especially when they fuck something up for you.
I believe in looking absolutely ridiculous in every single picture I appear in.
I believe fuck is a wonderous adjective, and a good interjection, but usually not a good verb.
I believe in hyperlinking.
I believe in sad songs.
I believe that in some cases, stalking is hilarious.
I believe that sometimes you just have to suck it up and clean other people’s hair out of the drain.
I believe in coffee shops on rainy days, and in paying $6 for a latte and the privilege to lounge around somewhere with cool music and free wifi.
I believe your decisions in snack foods can make you friends.
I believe in faking it till you make it.
I believe in life’s small comedies, bad jokes, and that you should regularly laugh until you have to start looking around for a trash can in case you vomit.
I believe in proper grammer in your first language, and accidents like “I am a pencil” in your second.
I believe in sober dance parties.
I believe in the random selection of albums based on their covers, but of the careful overanalytical creation of mix cds.
I believe in taking stairs two at a time.
I believe in Lonely Planet’s ability to steer me wherever I want to go.
I believe in creating lists and then forgetting about them for a month before posting them.
One year down, a few more to go. Happy New Year.
