  A Brief List Of Things I Have Strong Feelings About
1. Toaster Ovens.
Brilliant. Maybe this is leftover Easy-Bake Oven fixation, but I feel so capable when I use a toaster oven. So simple, but without the scary open flame. Even though one once caught on fire because my roommate let cheese drip onto the bottom and didn't clean it off.

2. My Winter Coat.
Every day I zip up the little inner lining, I love this coat just as much as I did the day I bought it. The six-month hiatus only increased my delight when I pulled it off the rack on the first day the temperature dipped below freezing.

3. Umbrellas.
I have seen through the bullshit on umbrellas, people. They do not keep anyone dry and are annoying to carry around, folded up or open. Break free!

That is all. I told you it would be brief.

  Today Is World AIDS Day
  The Lost Boys
At work, the MSN start page advertised an article titled "Best Places to Find a Man." Rather than read it, I thought I might suggest my own:

Best Places To Find A Man

1. Between the cushions of the couch
Things tend to slip down there. A good place to find half-used tissues, change for parking meters, and bookish types.

2. In the back of your closet
One of my favorite feelings is "discovering" something I'd totally forgotten about--a shirt, red velvet track pants, a metrosexual--it's like a free present!

3. On the floor of your car
Only for desperate moments. A sticky pen, someone scruffy and disoriented, crumpled printouts from Google Maps.

4. In your purse from last season
Hit and miss here: that Burt's Bees chapstick you loved so much, expired Tylenol Allergy pills, some pennies. A purse find is hard to read; you'll have to try him and take the risk.

5. On your kitchen table
If you are like me and can't bear to pay bills or recycle catalogs immediately, something exciting may be buried underneath your napkin holder. Dating someone that familiar with your habits, however, has its drawbacks.

6. In your mom's attic
A place for the most unexpected finds. Could be a mysterious stranger or a rat. Space for a nostalgic fling, but beware of over-romanticizing mistakes from your past.

7. At your best friend's house
Your favorite book, cardigan sweater, or best friend's brother--often these get left behind, loaned out, and forgotten. Be sure to call and ask her to look around for you.

In a move that seems to amuse only me, I pull lines from the blogs I hit on the Next Blog button, and arrange them into found poem form.
