Let's just start off with the primary funfact that pops into my cerebral cortex:
I love to make lists...
I love both functional and frivolous lists. Lists which consist of items to be crossed off. Lists that rhyme +/or reason. Lists with lisps. Listless lists. Incongruous lists. Cryptic lists. I adore them all.
I love making lists because a list provides order, offering a well-placed distraction/procrastination often resulting in perspective.
Take the classic:
the to-do list
[my most recent]
relax / breathe deeply
seek/attract meaningful employ
go to target (lead to another list)
clean (yet another list)
and so on and so forth
another fave of mine:
the duality list
what an indulgently superfluous fun list.
yum. yum. barf.
the duality list may comprise of the following or related to the following in no particular order:
love it/hate it
which leads me to the reason i started this blathering in the first place.
i was watching snl and bronx beat came on. it cracks me up every time- but katy perry was on for a pinch, and i'm not a fan of hers. so in my head, i'm listing sketches and guests i liked on snl, and those who bit it for whatever reason.
a hug them/slap them list came to mind
both are impulsive and gut reactionary
no premeditated thought required
amy poehler/katy perry
happy-dopey dogs/yappy-scrappy dogs
tiny corn/bob- that creepy furniture peddler
kids who naturally use foul language/dacota fanning
obese cats/human guardians of obese cats
giant men who drive teensy cars/teensy women who drive giant suvs
mini-scale house-ware tchotchkes/precious moments figurines
chipmunks/jimmy buffet "music"
