Food: Mashed potatoes in specific, and non-moving in general.
Pens : I'd be lost without my packs of cheap-but-decent-quality
blue pens. How would I write my shifts down?
Addendum: After reading a few of the tests, texts and testees (or
should that be testes?), I also highly value my red pen.
Hats: The more incongruous, the better.
Too many things to mention, but if it's a bit weirder than average,
decent chance I like it. Or loathe it to the depths of my twisted
little soul. It's the dualism of the soul, expressed by the
Anne Rice: silly girl should be hung, drawn and quartered, for
inspiring new age faux vampirism (or at least pointed at a college
where she could learn to stretch her writing style from "powerful
beautiful immortals who cry themselves to sleep because they can't
eat mud cake! Hahaha take that! You might live forever, but I'll
die happy and full of the most delicious type of cake"). Not to
mention for her claims of 'inventing' the vampire.
Metallica: A lot of Metallica is good. A lot of Metallica is the
same song, with longer solos. A lot of Metallica is playing up to
"we so hard" image, of a few fellows playing instruments, and
growling. Ambivalence is a good thing.
People who babytalk to animals (or babies).
People who babytalk to animals, and throw swear words into the
Extrapolate that as you will.
