People Like Me! They Really Like Me!

Thank you Galoot for providing me an outlet for all the nervous, caffeine-fueled energy I've accumulated today.

List 5 things that certain people (who are not deserving of being your friend anyway) may consider to be “totally lame,” but you are, despite the possible stigma, totally proud of. Own it. Tag 5 others.

1. I love bad pop music. Given my alt rock "pedigree," you'd think I'd find it totally unacceptable to listen to any kind of pop music. Wrong! I think Justin Timberlake's latest album is fabulous! I love Debbie Gibson! Give me some old school Backstreet Boys and N'Sync! Play some Rihanna! I also have no shame in inflicting songs by these artists on all my friends. God bless YouTube!

2. I sometimes get obsessed with children's programming like The Teletubbies. Back in 1998-2000, I was a huge Teletubbies fan. Something about that damn theme song. When I left WJTN, all my co-workers signed a Teletubbies coloring book rather than a card.

3. I think Morrissey/The Smiths rule everything. I know very few people that will agree with me on this fact. My parents don't understand it. My husband doesn't understand it. End of story.

4. I talk about the characters in "For Better or For Worse" as if they're real people. I know it's just a comic strip, but the story lines just seem so real sometimes.

5. I'm a news junkie. At the height of my consumption, I would watch the 5pm news, the 6pm news, the 6:30 national news, the 7pm local news, plus read two local newspapers in print, two newspapers online, about 30 blogs, and 5 news websites. I've toned it down a little to the 5:30 news, sometimes the 7pm local news, 2 print papers, 2 online newspapers, about 25 blogs, and 1 news website.

I tag Nick, Heidi, Ryan, Stenz and Adrienne.

Away, Away

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clift...
