Crackpot Funfacts- Pt.1

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
hot baths
seek/attract meaningful employ 
meditate (?)
organize laundry
get quarters
go to target (lead to another list)
eat better
call fulana
cat time
clean (yet another list)
get crafty
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

 ewoks/dane cook

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"

hatchetface/miley cyrus
