Things That Never Get Old: A List By Someone Who is Preoccupied

  • The word boner.
  • Weezer’s “Pinkerton.”
  • “Parks & Rec” which I have been shotgunning like a madwoman since I finished watching every episode of Top Chef ever made.
  • Speaking of: Tom Colicchio & Padme Lakshmi.
  • Crushes.
  • The feeling of hope you get when you start a new book.
  • Hating on February, the worst month of all the months.
  • The awesomeness of The Black Sheep, my writing group.
  • The anxiety of querying agents regarding The Beast.
  • Banana bread with peanut butter.
  • Avoiding grocery shopping even though I’m probably going to be eating mustard and black olive sandwiches if I don’t go soon.
  • Apparently the song “Cover Me Up” by Jason Isbell, which according to iTunes I have listened to 70 times so far this year (and by year I mean March 2014 to right now, because I clear my play counts every March) and that doesn’t even include how many times I listened to the record.
  • The fear after you’ve written a few decent, well-received posts that you’ve totally lost your mojo and will never have anything of value ever to say again and you should probably just pack up your blog right now and call it a career and well at least you had fifteen good years and that’s more than some people ever have, right?
  • Lists.
  • Soup.

    Hating February? That’s racist.

    I disagree. Soup gets old.
