About Me...

Thursday, November 8, 2007
Things I Dig

  • Old Northeastern/Mid-western cities - NY, Boston, Philly, Bmore, Chicago, St. Louis, etc.
  • Driving through cities just after it rains - I just love the look and feel of cities after it rains.
  • Sushi (it has to be cooked though) - Crunchy spicy shrimp roll is my favorite.
  • Interesting people who are social - Nothing worse than a person who hasn't learned to be social.
  • Oatmeal - I eat this stuff every morning and before the gym. It's a great simple carb and it keeps me regular.
  • Well-raised, respectful youth - Can't stand an incorrigible youth who's allowed to run amuck.
  • Whole Foods - Expensive, but close and worth it.
  • Mom and Pop/Non-chain stores and shops - Can't stand chains. Don't ask me to go into one. I won't do it.
  • Ground turkey and turkey bacon and tofu - I try to steer clear of the red meat.
  • CNN - If I'm not watching ESPN or my regional sports networks, then I'm watching CNN.
  • Fiji water - The best stuff on earth.
  • J. Crew - Great store. Love it.
  • My Blackberry - It really runs my life. I couldn't live without it.
  • My Tivo - I'll never be able to watch TV without it again.
  • Faithful, communicative significant others - I'd kill one of these right now.
  • The ACC, the NFL and the Champions' League - Three sports leagues I couldn't live without.

Things I Don't Dig

  • Smelly breath or ass or anything else - Seriously, clean yourself.
  • People who talk but really say nothing - You are boring and annoying.
  • Bluffers (people who say a lot and do nothing) - You waste my time.
  • Incorrigible, disrespectful youth - I'd smack their asses.
  • Duke, North Carolina and UVa - I went to Maryland. I'm a Terp. What else can I say?
  • Bill O'Reilly - He's good to laugh at occasionally, but not much else.
  • Bananas - Hate them. My grandma used to let them ripen and would forget about them and make me clean them when they turned rotted. It was disgusting.
  • Wal-Mart - Worst big-box...ever!
  • Tap Water - I can't stand it. I won't drink it. I'll spit it in your face if you bring it to me.
  • Sprawly autocentric cities - LA, Atlanta, Phoenix, San Diego, San Jose and any others like it.
  • Stupid (clueless) people - They're frustrating to deal with.
  • Reality TV shows - The last reality TV show I watched was The Real World Hawaii in 1999. Honest.
  • Weak beer - Weak beer makes me pee when it should be getting me drunk.
  • Department stores and malls - I'd much rather go to individual stores on a street.
  • Fried...anything - Just not into it.
  • People who haven't learned proper social skills - I'd pretty much kill them all if I could.
  • Cigarette smokers - I can deal with the ganja, but not the cigs. I'm just not into the smell or the taste when we kiss. Sorry.
Just thought I'd share.

I wonder what prompted this post. But, I LOVE Wal-mart and I'm from the ghetto - so a good glass of tap water will do it for me...I didn't grow up on bottled water and my mentality is such that I won't pay for something I get for free -lol.

If you buy Brita filters, it saves you so much versus buying 1 & 2.5 gallon jugs.

I hate people who talk just to be heard.

I dispise incorrigible youth as well.

I eat a banana every morning before I go to school.
It supposedly stimulates your muscles.

I tried to give up red me, but I love steak. So that was really a no-go.
