I am in a messed-up mood. We started watching "The Butterfly Effect" with Ashton Kutcher because some friends said it was good and I lasted maybe ten minutes. Two freaky scenes and had to turn it off. Then, on happy facebook, I saw the name of a friend of a friend who I knew in my distant past and it freaked me out further. I need to relax a little and go curl up in my bed.
Meanwhile, in the spirit of little pony-tailed girls putting their hands to their ears to block out things they don't want to hear and shouting "LA LA LA LA LA LA LA!" at the top of their lungs - let's just make a happy little list of things I like that start with the letter 'A'. That will get my mind off the last yucky hour I've had.
Apple Orchards near Yucaipa, California
A-frame houses in the woods
Angel-food cake with strawberries
Angel-food cake with chocolate drizzle
Amy Wilhite, Amy Smith, Amy Brinkman, don't think I've ever met an Amy I didn't like
Asics running shoes
Alps and other tall mountains
Armadillos (Bethanie's really into them right now)
Advertising during the Superbowl
Aviation (I was raised around it thanks to my A&P Mechanic father)
Aunt Kathryn, Aunt Ruth, Aunt June, Aunt Anne, Aunt Carmen & Aunt Laura
Arbitrariness (especially pertaining to blog posts)
