Comment to this post, and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

[livejournal.com profile] wshaffer gave me these:

travel: Can't get all that excited about travel for travel's sake. Traveling to see people is more of a draw for me, although even then it puts a bit of a crimp in my lifestyle. Right now my dad's trying to get me to come down and consult with him on Important Things and I'm still having trouble figuring out a place in my schedule that I really want to carve the time out of. *sigh*

singing: Couldn't live without it. Am finally studying to get better at it. Yay!

modern art: I keep being tempted to scoff at it. Like, I mean, Rothko. Really? A big honking white rectangle in between two big honking red ones is supposed to be art?

But then I look at a Pollock painting and I go "oooooooooooh." No goddamn reason a bunch of swirls should be art either, but it's satisfying to me in a fundamental enough way that I don't mind people calling it art.

So if that's art, then I guess Rothko's inane rectangles must be too. Or something.

ginger: Good stuff, ginger. Eases the stomach and all. And goddamn I love gingerbread.

Just don't ever call me "gingered up," because I know perfectly well what the origin of that phrase is, and figging is not my kink.

I am, however, rather fond of Tim Minchin's song Taboo.

waistcoats: Sexay. I should wear them more often...but then there's so rarely an occasion to. Like neckties. Feh.

Batman: The Tim Burton films kinda creeped me out when I was a kid. Then the really cheesy films came out when I was a teenager. Should've been the other way around.

pie: I like it well enough, although my enjoyment of it (even when it's gluten-free) is hampered somewhat by my obsessive-compulsive need to balance crust and filling per bite. I'm not a fan of fruit pies except for apple, but I like a good pecan or chocolate cream, and occasionally find myself in the mood for pumpkin.
