So I logged into my faithful blog this morning to publish a comment from a kind reader, and I noticed that the text on my "about me" page had been mysteriously jumbled at some point. (I'm assuming it happened during one of the countless TypePad format changes.) I was horrified to discover that many of my "likes" and "dislikes" had been through the old switcheroo... and it appeared as if I LIKE people who are mean to animals and putting away laundry, and as if I dislike many of my favorite things. Yikes! How long was it in that state? I am hoping not too many readers have taken time to look at that page, but I wanted to set the record straight just in case.
So. The real About Me:
LIKES: reading, photography, sewing, drawing, doodling, gluing, musing, documentaries, swimming, roller-skating, moonlight bicycling, music that makes me feel, windows with sunlight pouring through them, long face-to-face conversations with a good friend, animals who do bad things, animals with three legs, dogs with beards, cats with funny faces, birds who bathe in dirt, old men with bushy eyebrows, old ladies with pastel-hued hair, eye patches, undies (yes, undies!), gold teeth, sincerity, that delicious crunch of a stepped-upon pinecone, people with twinkling eyes...
DISLIKES: the word "blog", cell phones, putting laundry/dishes/groceries away, waking up to the harsh cry of an alarm clock, stepping in gum, people who are mean to animals, people who are mean to other people, public toilets, the human need to compartmentalize and label everything and everyone.
Thank you for indulging me in that. I feel much better now!
p.s. Dear TypePad, please stop changin' stuff all the time!
