The best part of today: No driving.
Otherwise, I did nothing of interest. Rather than boring you with my complaints, I'm going to sort of borrow Brahm's idea. I have a number of lists. They're all stored in my brain so they can't fall into the wrong hands. I have lists of people I dislike, people I find attractive, people I know I can trust, people I avoid. Lots of lists. I'm anal like that.
The longest list by far is my "People I Want to Meet" list. I find people fascinating and I find them fascinating for a variety of reasons. Some of them are people I admire, some of them I admire their work, some I'm just curious about. The truly funny thing is, I've imagined meeting these people and even in my imagination I get tongue tied. The only reaction I can honestly imagine having is simply staring at them. Which would be really creepy. I acknowledge it.
So here's a snippet from the list:
JK Rowling (because she's a brilliant author who created a beautiful work of art)
Rick Riordan (because he's a clever, wonderfully creative author who made something old, new again)
Dianna Agron (because she seems really intelligent)
Julie Andrews (because she's amazing)
Pink (because she's smart, talented and I think you could say fierce)
Lady Gaga (because she seems really smart and interesting)
Sarah Waters (because she's a really interesting historical fiction writer)
Ellen Degeneres (do I really need to explain this one?)
Sarah Palin (because she can't really be that... out of it)
Barrack Obama (because I've got issues)
Gordon Ramsey (I like food and I think he's funny)
There are others, but these are the people I'm thinking of off the top of my head.
Perhaps one day I'll meet these people and get to stare at them. I mean... talk to them. Definitely talk to them. I also realize the lack of men on this list. These aren't in any particular order so... I'm sure there are more men that belong with the above. I'll keep thinking about it.
Who would you like to meet?
