See You In Hell!

5 things that I'm copping to today:

Some things that REALLY REALLY bother me, but that I havent been able to openly admit because they tend to be things that other people like, and I really just don't feel like putting up with their bullshit arguments about WHY I should like them, are:

1. Clowns

2. Cilantro (which I hate with the white-hot intensity of a billion suns. I cannot stress this enough)

3. Parades

4. Reggae music (don't press me on this one, I just don't like it, okay? I'd rather get a pap smear with a rake than listen to reggae music)

5. People who say 'Eye-talian' rather than 'IH-talian". What, are you from Eye-taly? Jesus.

CILANTRO is a fucking nightmare and i detest those who think i just haven't "given it a chance." it makes me vomit. at chipotle they mix it in with the rice, so i either have to pass up on the delicious rice in my burrito OR i have to request it without cilantro, and how do you think they respond to that? they agree but then belittle me in spanish to one another.

clowns are bad. clowns are child molestors and serial killers.

Em's comment made me remember my intense hatred for the lemon-fresh pledge-iness of ginger. It's tied with the soapy, food-contaminating, detectable-even-in-1-part-per-billion vileness of cilantro.

okay, that previous comment was from kari. blogger wouldn't let me sign in for some reason.(it's probably b/c i don't like cilantro. and ginger rubs me the wrong way. but let's not get into my ginger rubbing habits.)

Actually it's genetic or something--no seriously! To some people Cilantro tastes like soap and to others it does not. We'll have to agree to disagree. Can't we all just get along?

I need to add something else to the list: Street Vomit.

Here I am, walking down the street on my way to work, otherwise happy and unscathed, and leaping into my peripheral vision is an incongruous shape & color on the sidewalk. A pinkish splatter. It is, of course, street vomit. Yes, vomit, the only other thing I am more phobic about than needles and small confined spaces (and of course, clowns).

I am regularly treated to this cavalcade of stomach contents as I traverse the downtown streets of Portland. Perhaps I am being punished for something I did in a past life. None of my friends sees street vomit on a regular basis.

And why is the vomit always vermillion in color? Is it always the same person? Do I have a stalker who can't keep down his tomato bosque? WHAT?

In that last post I obviously meant BISQUE, not bosque. My large inarticulate man-hands have trouble with conventional computer keyboards. So sue me.
