just when the caterpillar thought the world was over ...

... it became a butterfly

-TV. A lot.
-The Olympics. All of them. Every sport. I park my ass in front of the TV and don't move for about three weeks.
-Photography. Of the black and white variety, especially when I can do everything myself, including developing the film and the pictures.
-My digital camera, and all my beautiful lenses that go along with it.
-Proper grammar. Spelling and punctuation are love. No, seriously.
-The last three Star Wars movies. The old ones. The good ones.
-Television Without Pity. And recaps of television shows in general.
-Maura Tierney, Diane Farr, Gillian Anderson, and Lena Olin. HBIC.
-Michael Vartan. Seriously. No, SERIOUSLY.
-French, especially when the above mentioned is speaking it.
-Jennifer Garner and Michael Vartan. Together, as one perfect pair. Apart I only like him now, due to Jennifer Garner's poor skills in husband-selection.
-David Duchovny, up until he decided to doom us to a final two seasons of The X-Files without Mulder.
-All Apple products. No, really, all of them. Every. Single. One.
-Being alone. It’s how I de-stress. Although that idea seems to be lost on most people.
-My DVR.
-NFL Football
-College basketball
-Many, many kinds of music.
-Kids! Three-year-olds are my absolute favorite. Infant->1 = also adorable. 2 = annoying. 4-6 = still hilarious and mostly tolerable. And then they just get annoying around the age of 7-8.
-Good fanfic. Of the romantic variety.
-Fanfic that is SO bad it's hilarious.
-Chocolate, especially dark.

-Oreos. Just, ew.
-Red meat.
-People who think they are superior because they don't use the Internet for anything other than what is absolutely necessary for school/work/communication.
-People who think they are superior because they don’t watch TV.
-People who say “It’s just a show/movie!”
-People who borrow DVDs and don’t give them back.
-People who stand behind me while I’m watching a show or movie or while I’m on the computer.
-People who are stupid.
-People who are ignorant.
-Most people in general.
-Ben Affleck.
-When my quiet/alone time is interrupted.
-People who readily use sentences such as the following: “like omg, r u goin 2 go 2 da movies 2nite?”
-Bad fanfic, but not so bad that it's funny. Just bad. Painful. Much like everything I attempt to write.
-Times New Roman. No. Really. Pick any other font. Except Curlz, or Comic Sans.

This journal is FRIENDS ONLY thanks to my watching way too many "bad guy" shows. Comment way back at my "friends only" post which I check approximately once every year if you want to be added. Or you could just e-mail me at nicciolinastrana@gmail.com, which I guarantee will get to me faster. Love, chocolate, and good grammar to you!
