I believe: ~that if love and mutual respect aren't the answer, space is. ~that my socks *do* get stolen in the laundrey, despite what my friends say. ~that the theories of evolution and faith can be reconciled. ~that when I turn 60 and decide to fulfill my life-long dream of becoming a cat lady, my true friends will buy me kitty litter and cleaning supplies. ~that it's ok to get drunk once in a while if you do it responsibly. ~that animals have personalities. ~that sometimes there just isn't enough chocolate in the world. ~that yes, a man's hair can be too long. ~that the goose and the dolphin are two of the most frightening animals in the world. ~that one of the best things in the world is to get up early, work out hard and come home smelling of horse. ~that no one should be named out of a baby book. ~that you can tell the quality of a current dictionary by the definitions of the word "f@ck" in it: my dictionary has 12.
At any time I will: ~sing showtunes, symphonies, and alternative music out loud. ~try everything (and I mean everything) once with no obligation to repeat. ~dress sexily just because I can. ~watch a flame until my eyes adjust and I can't see it anymore. ~be brutally honest and caustic. ~stare at people expressionlessly until they snap. ~break out my knitting. ~turn random words into a song. ~break the 4th toe on my right foot. ~nap, even in odd places. ~turn on a fan or lose clothing.
I can: ~recite the first three chapters of "The Princess Bride" by memory. ~draw with my toes. ~lift one eyebrow. ~play four musical instruments that are *not* guitar or piano. ~knit, quilt, embroider, applique, sew clothing, spin wool, bead, arrange flowers and bake like nothing in the world. ~type 50+ wpm when I try. ~apply make-up on other people properly but not myself. ~eat an entire pint of Ben & Jerry's in one sitting, especially when it's Chubby Hubby.
I can't: ~shut my mouth at the right time. ~get my hair to straighten. ~believe that they cancelled Firefly and Invader Zim. ~not buy the next Terry Pratchett book. ~learn another language in its completancy. ~remember if "completancy" is a word. (It isn't; it's completeness)
