What the hey, shit's good, lets like other things too.
I like taking my car in for a service because it's scheduled, not because the engine's blown up.
I like the moment of insanity when there's a spider on your bed, but you can't squish it immediately because you don't want it's guts all over your quilt, so you shoo it onto the spare pillow because you can change that.
I like knowing I should be working on projects, but instead getting out some of my newer stash and coming up with yet more plans for it.
I like days off work.
I like the idea that tomorrow night, I'm gunna stand in a field and get a bit drunk. It's been too long.
I like big coats and vests.
I like sitting in front of the fire because it's warm and it's made me all lethargic.
I like making quilted stubby holders. I like using quilted stubby holders. I like finding a fabric and thinking "hey, this would be perfect for a stubby holder"
I like it when there's a blue or red card in the post office.
I like buying a different bottled water to everyone else (Mt Franklin and Pump are the main bottled waters in Australia, I buy Aqua Essence, because it comes in a bag and is from 500m behind my house)
I like it when people are comletely olivious to an obvious solution. It's a bit mean, but I like to not tell them, and see how long it takes them to figure it out.
I like checked shirts.
I like new socks.
I like the fact that not only am I free to choose what I want to do today, but that I have options.
I like going through really old harddrives and seeing stuff from years ago.
I like reading my really old blogs, and thinking to myself, 'Gosh, you were such a whiny emo"
I like knowing where I've come from, even if I don't know where I'm going.
I like being myself. Noone else would be as good at it as I am.
