I'll be honest.

Things I don't like:
  1. People who call themselves artists who never create anything.
  2. The use of words like "exquisite" and "gambolling" in casual conversation. Unless I say them.
  3. People who don't recognize that there is an art to cussing and artists should be left alone to create.
  4. The use of phrases like "harsh beauty" in Facebook comments or tweets. But only if written in a very self -aware "aren't I a super wunnerful writer" sort of way.
  5. The rest of the artichoke.
  6. Early '80s furniture in almost any style.
  7. When people drum their fingernails.
  8. People who get food or other undesirable stains on library books.
  9. When someone says they don't like pickles but don't specify what sort of thing has been pickled and in what particular way.
  10. Self-sealing envelopes. Because where's the fun in that?

Things I like:

  1. Hotels with a variety of pillows.
  2. Cotton
  3. Harvard beets
  4. Cussing
  5. The smell of an old paperback that hasn't been opened in years.
  6. Clear, waterproof band-aids.
  7. Drumming my fingernails.
  8. Paperclips
  9. The harsh beauty of people exquisitely gambolling.
  10. Finally getting that itch in me ear scratched but good.

This is uncanny! That's my #9 too!

But do you mean it in a very self -aware "aren't I a super wunnerful writer" sort of way?
