P.S. If you're someone I spoke to a while back when I was churning out test after test, feel free to drop me a line again! I stopped using this page for a good year or two but I'm getting back into the swing of things now!
With that out of the way, how about a list of pet loves and hates? Everybody loves lists, right? :)
Sleeping in after staying up until 6am.
Making or receiving mix CDs.
Hiking (or a walk through the Botanic Gardens when I've got less time).
Rainy, stormy nights.
Laid-back bars and lounges.
Being chatty with people who work in menial jobs to make their day more interesting.
Sitting back and watching other people interact.
Cooking for/with friends.
Boxing Day. I do a video night with friends on Boxing Day every year.
Putting on clothes that have just come out of the drier.
Making out for hours and hours.
I cannot stand...
Txt msg lang.
People calling conversations "Deep and Meaningfuls" or "D&Ms".
Those people who push the button at pedestrian crossings when it's freakin' obvious someone else already has.
Early morning starts.
People who hear that I review films and then decide to ask me "oh, so have you seen *insert film title*?" I probably haven't.
The overload of mindless advertising IN fashion magazines.
Superfluous flavour variations on existing products. Tamarind flavoured Pepsi Samba, anyone?
Cab drivers who slow down as they drive past me when I'm out for a walk.
People who screen phone calls.
Going to clubs for anything other than dancing.
Clothing with brand names in obvious places.
Commercials that masquerade as public service announcements, a là Brand Power - helping you buy better.
Rude receptionists, bouncers, bus drivers and librarians.
Being called 'babe', 'sweetie', 'hun' or any other similarly insincere word by people I'm not especially close to.
Paris Hilton and all the other bland celebs who were grown out of that same vat.
