A few of my favorite things: a crush list for early summer

  • Bananas, the fruit. I can’t get enough of them and whenever I eat them I think of the main character in The Hotel New Hampshire whose name I cannot remember who eats bananas and runs all the damn time because he wants to be a good wrestler. He does this because the grandpa tells him something like, “You have to get obsessed and stay obsessed.”
  • Top Chef, like Project Runway but with knives
  • Polly & Peabo
  • Dan Chaon & Jean Thompson, because every non-short story book I’ve picked up lately has annoyed the shit out of me. But Chaon’s Fitting Ends and Thompson’s Throws Like a Girl are magical elixirs for what ails you when it comes to novel malaise.
  • That damn Jeff Tweedy bootleg that I haven’t stopped listening to since, oh, Saturday. An intervention might be in order. Currently I am rocking the “Who Were You Thinking Of?”
  • Dabysan
  • The random curly-haired, bespectacled boy my imagination created last night during practice.
  • Driving home from Grumpy’s full of beer and tator tots with the windows down singing along to the Oldie’s station, especially when they play Hall & Oates’ “Maneater” which seemed like a gift from the radio gods to me and Ruby.
  • Our Taste Tests during lunchclub, earlier this week we did Toll-House Chocolate Chip Break and Bake Cookies vs. Ma. Buehler’s Break and Bake Chocolate Chip Cookies (some store brand). Toll-House won, unanimously. Today we are taste testing salsa.

    Eww, bananas.

    Also, beer and tots? Um, no. Tots are nasty.

    Who asked you? It’s my crush list, not yours. Write your own list.

    UH: Get your own tots, gosh.
