What I found most interesting about this list is that actually there was nothing I refuse to try. When it comes to food I have only one serious rule and that is, if I like it I don't ask what it is or what's in it.
I am very adventurous when it comes to flavor. I do prefer more intense flavors over more bland ones.
I also have an infernal level love of bacon. I. Fucking. Love. Bacon. No I don't think you understand my deep and abiding love of bacon.
I also really love things that sometimes gross my friends out. I love weird stinky fancy cheese, I love caviar, I really -really- love a dirty vodka martini (with the blue cheese stuffed olives), I love having a fine scotch with cheesecake.
Similarly I am pretty adventurous in other areas. Physical activity among them.
However my imagination has often outpaced my physical ability. Thanks shitty joints and janky back for that.
Shit I completely lost whatever point I was going to make.
My allergies are going absolutely bug shit right now for reasons that are beyond me.
I am also having a terrible fashion crisis. I found shoes I really want to go with my maid of honor dress but they are a.) too expensive and b.) the heels are way too high. I fucking LOVE high heels but haven't had a good pair in so long I don't know if I'd be able to walk in them without face planting and I could really do without doing that in front of Cookie's family.
If it was just Cookie and her man I'd fall down and it'd be fine but yeah.
Also really, am I ever going to get over my abject love of hookerish shoes?
I really don't know what I'm going to do about my love of really impractical fashion. I thought as I got older it'd get better but that has yet to happen. As I get older in fact the more my brain goes something like this.
I run across petticoats somewhere, my brain goes FUCK YEAH FUCK YEAH YEAH YEAH. Throw in some stripey tights, stompy mary janes and probably a tshirt and I'd be good to go.
Kind of absurd? Yes. And my brain just registers, FUCK YEAH FUCK YEAH.
Would I feel fabulous? Yes.
Practical? Not really.
Unfortunately I have a problem with that. Not just when it comes to clothes but in general.
I wonder about other people sometimes. If their inner brainy thoughts are as odd as mine and they find themselves having to consciously work not to do really strange things.
I hate to pull the special snowflake card but sometimes having to move and be effective in the mainstream world just fucking blows chunks.
Really it does.
In other news I am currently scheming how to get myself a set of dread extensions to rock all winter.
Okay I seriously think I'm done. I just heard that Naked City is no longer being done by Audacia Ray and that's depressing.
Just a crap day kind of.
