love & hate

Things I'm loving right now:

1. Lindsey Lohan's new video. I saw it for the first time last week, and even though I'm not a L.L. fanatic I have to admit that it's fantastic. The song is good, the visuals are arresting, and overall it's really touching and sad.

2. Golden Grahams with soy milk and a side of Pop-Tarts for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They just started stocking Pop-Tarts at the little market by my apartment complex, and I couldn't be happier. For me, Pop-Tarts were always off limits as a kid. My mom always believed in oatmeal or healthy breakfast cereals. The one time I remember getting to have them as a kid was when my mom was in the hospital giving birth to my sister and I stayed with grandma. She bought me Pop-Tarts and I never forgot it.

3. Walking to work through big, fluffy snowflakes. So romantic and dreamy. Big, fluffy snowflakes that stop falling once I've gotten to work so that my "commute" home won't be messy are even better (hint, hint Mother Nature).

4. Campus Ladies on Oxygen. Hilarious. I love the slutty one.

5. The Republic of Tea's Pink Lemonade Green Tea. Drinking healthy junk has never tasted so good!

6. The fact that my parents went out and bought a brand new car on Saturday, and now their old car is mine!
I just have to fly home and drive it back!!
Matt will soon be mobile again!!!
Then it's the road-trip life for me. Does anyone want a visit from a witty, hard-drinking, ever-so-charming gay man sometime this spring/summer?

7. Making out with sweet, innocent, cute 21-year-olds. But then showing unheard-of restraint and stopping there.

8. Roseanne reruns (right hotbabe?). Did you know there was a different D.J. in the first episode?

9. A cozy, quiet Monday morning spent designing architecture/interiors posters in Illustrator for a client presentation. It's like working on fun little puzzles with shiny pictures! And bonus points apply due to the fact that I don't have to talk to anyone.

10. Coffee is the new black. Seriously. Everything I've read in the past couple weeks is telling me that a cup of coffee in the morning makes me brilliant. If you don't believe me, check out this week's Time. Yay – finally an addiction I can be proud of!



Things I'm hating right now:

1. That I have to work on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. So, so racist.
Still, I guess that gives me President's Day to look forward to….

2. The chest cold I've had since last Wednesday. I can't breathe and I can't work out. And god help me (and everyone around me) when I get started on one of those crazy, phlegmy coughing spasms….

3. Going to an acquaintance's birthday party, taking them an expensive bottle of wine, and then having to pay for all my drinks and ending up standing in the corner not knowing anyone or desiring to talk to anyone there, except for the bud I went with - who I can talk to anytime at a place with much cheaper drinks.
(And no - I didn't take back the bottle of wine when I walked out 15 minutes after arriving, although I seriously considered it.)

4. Cigarettes.

5. Walking through downtown Denver after a big Broncos win. Drunken, loud, obnoxious, belligerent, testosterone-overloaded breeders everywhere.
FOOTBALL!!!

6. The fact that it's now January 16th and I still haven't gotten any news about my raise. Grrrrr. More $ = good times.

Sounds like you have a lot going on right now... but most of all, I want to agree with your raise comment. I need one ASAP.

And LiLo rocks... you are just now coming to this conclusion?

Raises are for those who are productive and don't have blogs.

I assume my boss would say that...

ooooo sven is really punchy...I like it.
I would eat my kashi cereal and soymilk for every meal if I could...
Come to think of it I suppose I could...I don't think anyone would stop me.
I also need a raise...oh wait I don't make any money, now that really sucks.
So does the first DJ on Roseanne,and did you get a load of DAn's floppy hair...yikes
as far as pop tarts my serving suggestion is buy the smores ones and put them in the freezer...I really know my stuff when it comes to vitamin fortified junk food.
lastly...You know how much Jenny and I would enjoy a night out with Denverboy this summer,you get you and your new mode of transport down here as soon as you can!That is if I am alive this summer...
sorry I am a mopey drama queen tonight...

I'm loving your love/hate lists!

Seriously, though, I'm considering having your mental health checked because Roseanne is a really bad show. And how much worse could the 1st DJ have been?
