Polarity Meme

Thank you, triL, for tagging me... (triL happens to be my sister - the same one who's likely in early labor now).

The Polarity Meme is 10 things you hate followed by 20 things you love. Here are mine (off the top of my head):

10 things I can't stand
  1. nasty, inconsiderate, disrespectful people
  2. cigarette or cigar smoke
  3. cats that try to steal food off the table (OK, one specific cat who will remain nameless)
  4. being really, really tired and not knowing when the next time I'll get a chance to sleep is
  5. dirty floors (in my house. If it's not my responsibility, I don't mind it.)
  6. extreme temperatures and wind (I think I have ultra-sensitive nerve endings)
  7. not being able to breathe through my nose when I have a cold
  8. cockroaches (in my house. Believe me, the one I saw this week was at least 2 inches long.)
  9. letters with court dates
  10. losing things

20 things I love:

  1. my family
  2. flowers
  3. rainbows
  4. butterflies (brightly colored, please)
  5. creative designs (architecture, industrial design, websites, whatever)
  6. reading a good book
  7. singing
  8. writing
  9. watching 24 (or CSI or whatever) with Ohad
  10. traveling to new places
  11. hearing good news
  12. being silly and being able to make people laugh
  13. providing encouragement to people going through a rough time
  14. people who see themselves as part of something bigger and therefore as responsible to do good
  15. criticizing anything
  16. country music (not all, but John Denver, Jim Croce, etc.)
  17. Barbra Streisand, Bette Midler, Bryan Adams
  18. going out for breakfast
  19. the smell of fresh bread
  20. when the house is quiet and everyone's sleeping…

I tag Bea, artblog, and Sarah

(I'm posting this sort of retroactively, so that the post about my sister's labor can be at the top...)

i'm kind of fascinated at how very different my list will probably be from yours. although i'm totally with you on inconsiderate people! and while i'm not at all down with bette midler, i've loved john denver pretty much my whole life. Calypso was my song when i was about 8. totally made me want to Jacques Cousteau. thanks for the tag!

Nice list!

I'm going to have to throw it on the pile of memes to do... whoops...

Hope your sister continues to go well.
