Writer's Block: You Don't Know Me

So, I'm back from my big adventure. I went with four of my coworkers to NYC before a meeting in Mt. Arlington, NJ. I'm generally not into touristy stuff, but it was an ok trip. We stayed in this hotel near Times Square, and it was definitely a weird hotel. The elevators were teeny, and one of the side hallways was very narrow and serpentine. Also, the bathroom doors were pretty much see-through. They had glass that was striped frosted and clear, and that's just... wrong. So we put up an inflatable mattress in front of the door when showering. Sheesh. Anyway, we had lunch in Little Italy, so I was happy. We walked around a whole lot, and I tried not to freak out because I hate cities (too many people, and I don't like when strangers approach me on the street for whatever reason - they do that a LOT in NYC).

After a couple days, we went to Mt. Arlington and had dinner with some of the people at that office. So I met like half a dozen of them for the first time that night, and there were a dozen of us at the table, including my boss. I was trying to be on my best behavior and attempt to be social and stuff. And then I ended up spilling iced tea all over the place, because I'm horribly clumsy like that. Very smooth, Ade. At least they seemed to find it amusing, and I didn't spill on anyone. The next day was a very boring yet productive meeting that took ALL DAY. At least we got free food.

When I came home, my cats were VERY happy to see me. Bouncer was meowing constantly for several minutes, and they both insisted on not letting me sleep that night. It also seemed like nature went haywire in the few days I was gone. I came back, and my lawn was getting that "slightly overgrown" look, my dark purple tulips had bloomed (sadly the red and yellow ones are losing their petals), and a lot of my seedlings looked bigger. I did a bit of yard work yesterday, and I'll probably do more today.

I saw "Our Town" at the high school yesterday. Although it's one of the most boring plays ever written, Daragh and Colin did a great job, so yay.

Our friends don't always know us as well as they think, particularly when it comes to likes and dislikes. Which popular book, movie, band, food, TV show, etc. would your friends be surprised to hear that you don't like?

I think most of my friends know I don't like the following things that a lot of them seem to like (although a lot of them also dislike some of them):
- vampires
- bacon
- collectible card games
- cities
- beer
- babies
- fanfiction
- relationships
- marijuana
- Grease
- tattoos (in general... though if someone gets a well-placed tattoo that's truly awesome, this is the exception)
- pink
- jazz music (there are a few exceptions, but I'm not crazy about the genre itself)
- buttsex (ewwwwwwww)
- Jane Austen

...and so forth.
