LIKE: Your comments on my silly posts :)
DISLIKE: Well...


  1. Fun post! I don't like people wearing leggings as pants, either. I'm like, "Hmm, it seems like you walked out of the house before you got fully dressed this morning!"

  2. Thanks!

    And yes, that's exactly the problem! I see a woman on my commute most mornings, and one day she was wearing leopard print leggings and a short sweater. I was like, "I don't even know you, I do NOT need to see your butt encased in leopard". But legging under something (a tunic, dress, etc.) are totally cute!

  3. We have a TON in common! Although, I loved the SATC movie, just not the second one. Maybe I need to do one of these posts. How fun!

  4. Fun post, I like cake and dislike pie too...its a crust thing. Thanks for validating that I'm not the only one.

  5. Ditto on the manicures and the leggings! But I will have to defend the Yankees! :)

  6. I'm glad people liked this! I thought it would be a good getting-to-know-you kind of post while I was away...

    A -- I would love to read a post like this on your blog! And I REALLY hated SATC:TM 2, but the first one disappointed me a bit. I guess one of the things I liked about the show was that they could keep it light while still doing serious things. The movie was kind of dark...and how could Carrie blame Miranda for that throwaway comment!

    H -- Cake vs. pie is a hotly debated argument! And yes, the crust/mushy filling texture difference is a problem for me, too. Can't do it!

    K -- Yes, that's why I usually go with Mademoiselle on my fingers...easier to hide the smudges! And we'll just have to agree to disagree on the baseball thing ;) I guess you're someone who is a fan of winning, MVPs, dynasties, etc. I like that the Mets keep me on my toes and teach me how to handle heartbreak. At this point, I am an expert!

  7. this! Again, we have soo much in common. I could eat cake every day for every meal (though I have to say unfortunately I don't dislike pie...I can eat that, too...damn) and you know how I feel about the Mets/ takes true heart to stick with em -that's for sure!
    Great list!

  8. Ooh, a cake and pie eater -- a rare breed! And my dating mantra is go with a Mets fan because I know they will be unfailingly loyal! :)
