30 Least Favorites of the Moment

Readers: I’ve shown you mine, now you show me yours!
30 Least Favorites of the Moment:
1) color: beige (what is it? a brown that can’t commit? a dirty yellow?)
2) soft drink: Diet Pepsi (I’m a strictly lime Diet Coke girl)
3) jewelry: brooches (it’s just stuck on your blouse like a button; why not wear a necklace and show off your neck or cleavage? )
4) body part: feet (except Ned’s, which are beautiful)
5) hair color: red
6) instrument: clarinet
7) flower: marigold (stubby and cheese colored)
8) candy: Skittles (look deceptively like M&Ms; but then — eek! fruit!)
9) band: Styx (the lead singer sounds like he swallowed helium)
10) song: Where Have All the Cowboys Gone? Paula Cole (“Yippee -i, yippee-ay!” I get shivers of annoyance when I hear it)
11) toy: Cabbage Patch Kids (hideous)
12) book: Penelope Leach’s Your Baby and Child. (Read it as a first-time mom and it did not match my reality in the least. Tore it in half and threw it across the room.)
13) decade: The 1950’s (June and Ward, pointy bras, crinolines, conservative politics, buzz cut men, a woman’s place was in the home. Snore.)
14) meal: dinner
15) weather: rain
16) old t.v. show: Beverly Hillbillies (just plain stu-pid)
17) new t.v. show: E.R. (so much tsuris. Ever sit in a real Emergency Room? Dull as dishwater.)
18) school year: seventh grade (I had no friends in my class and a mean anti-semite in there)
19) boy’s name: Dick (come on, people!)
20) girl’s name: Nancy
21) outfit: sweatpants and sweatshirt and sneakers
22) store: Brookstone (totally boring — gadgets only)
23) holiday: Yom Kippur (fasting, I don’t do it, guilt)
24) smell: cigarette breath
25) chore: dusting
26) dream: the one about the tidal wave coming up the beach
27) birthday: turning seven, I cried the whole party (I don’t remember why except that Dad wasn’t there?)
28) sport: basketball
29) game: Chinese checkers (sorry Ben!)
30) curable illness: strep (so uncomfortable)

Been thinking about beige too. People love this color for their house siding color, their faux-suede furniture, their painted walls, their cars, and especially their carpets…even calling it champagne doesn’t make it any more exciting. But I am all about brown…with pink, teal, or peach.

Yeah, champagne. It’s still the epitome of boring!

These days I like brown with Tiffany blue!

My least favorite chore:
cleaning the litter box or toilet

My least favorite book:
DSM-IV

My least favorite celebrity:
Lindsay Lohan
She’s such a wanna be and such a never gonna be

Least favorite part of the body:
the middle of the back, because you can never see it or reach it, especially if you have an itch.

Just my thoughts…

Susan, you stab me deeply with your sudden dislike for MY NAME! What’s up with that? Your old friend, Nancy Bea šŸ™‚ P.S. But I agree with you on the Beverly Hill Billies. The song is the best part. Oh, and yes, Diet Coke Lime: my favorite tipple too!

Oh, NancyBea! I was not thinking at all. You are a lovely Nancy and person. I was thinking of a Nancy here that rubs me the wrong way. It was a stupid comment and I apologize! You make the name beautiful.

Brooches? Does anyone wear them anymore?

And I have to agree with you on the clarinet. My daughter started band this year and every day she kills a cat in her room, er, practices.

And a rainy day can be comforting and snuggly…the best kind of day to take a nice, long nap. šŸ™‚

I started on clarinet and then moved on to sax.

hm… I disagree with you.

I have red hair. And I love it.
