I'm so different

I try to be different, just for effect. Don't we all want to feel unique? But I'm copying this post idea from Arianne, which is, ironically, about being different.

Name something you hate that everyone else loves:

Krispy Kreme glazed doughnuts. I know, they're all the rage. But give me cake doughnuts any day. Their glazed ones just taste like raw dough and land at the bottom of my stomach like a blob of Play-Doh.

Name something you love that everyone else hates:

Redheads. Of both the male and female variety. I just really find it attractive. Even the accompanying fair complexions or freckles. Children are especially cute. I hope I get a redhead of my own someday.

guys in flip-flops

How do you feel about men wearing flip-flops? Is it hot? Or not?

For me, it depends on the feet. I used to despise feet. You wouldn't catch me dead in a pair of open-toe sandals, and I avidly avoided looking at anyone's bare feet for fear that nausea might overtake me. I'm not so disgusted anymore. I've come to accept my own feet, and the fact that some feet are just ugly. But every once in a while I spot a sexy group of toes.

Sidenote: That reminds me of a line from All About Steve. Mary's father(?) asks, "Mary, why do you wear those stupid red boots all the time?" To which she responds,

"Because they make my toes feel like ten friends on a camping trip. That's why I wear them."


Anyway, I'm not sure exactly what it is that makes a foot sexy, but there it is. I don't mind a guy in flip-flops, unless his feet are nasty. For the requirements on girls' sandal-clad feet, see here.

And on another related sidenote, when shopping online for flip-flops, or any variety of sandal, why aren't they shown being worn rather than by themselves? Doesn't a sandal look better with a foot in it?

Watching people kiss is my porn. Well, watching actors, really, because real public displays of affection are more embarrassing than fun to watch. Raise your hand if you knew this about me. I'm not fond of admitting it, yet it's true. People think it's weird that I "collect" kisses. When I was in college I used to connect two VCRs together and record my favorite scenes to a blank video tape. Now there's YouTube. How awesome is that?

If you go on a date, but it's with someone of your same gender, and it's not meant to be a date but feels very much like one, can you safely call it a date? Because the next time someone asks me how long it's been since I went on a date with someone, I want to be accurate.
