famous people I have made out with in dreams and the dream-locations in which these makeouts took place. please note that I have no control over my dreams and have little to no idea why I dreamt about making out with some of these people. hopefully I will have more dreams in which I make out with quasi-celebrities and I can continue to update this list...

  • George Clooney (under the bleachers at a high school basketball game)
  • Shooter Jennings (in a ditch on the side of a highway)
  • Rob Halford (backstage at a Judas Priest concert; also, wtf?)
  • Dave Attell (on a remote Scottish island with a decrepit castle)
  • John Krasinski (in an alley behind a school)
  • Raquel Welch (in a cave; must have been influenced by "One Million Years B.C.")

unattainable crushes I have had over the years and why they could never come to fruition...

  • Jake, Australian outback rat from "The Rescuers Down Under," at age 6 (unattainable due to fact that was a cartoon rat).
  • Adrian Guyn-Levick, classmate from fourth to fifth grade, age 8-10 (unattainable because he was class nerd and was therefore embarrassing to admit crush).
  • Sergio Rivera, who had the same bus stop as me, as 11 (unattainable because he was as hopelessly good-looking an 11-year-old as I was hopelessly bad-looking).
  • Joey, last name forgotten, friend of stepbrother, summer of '97, age 11-12 (unattainable due to him being adorable blonde surfer boy and me being extremely awkward and geeky recent Arizona transplant).
  • Mr. Allen, 7th grade English teacher, age 12 (unattainable for obvious reasons, th...

here is a list of things I admire about myself which no one else probably even notices...

  • the ability to walk anywhere and everywhere in 5" heels.
  • extensive mental encyclopedia of '80s heavy metal knowledge.
  • have never dieted or set foot in a gym, yet maintain a perfect size 4 (realize this is owing to insane luck in genetic lottery and will obviously deteriorate over time, but must enjoy while lasts).
  • the ability to gracefully exit a car while wearing a short skirt without revealing myself to the all and sundry.
  • uncanny outfit memory (can recall what someone was wearing on a specific night, sometimes even years in past).
  • can single-handedly bring down a karaoke night at a white trash bar.
  • unfailingly pleasant phone demeanor.

a lot of things really cook my bacon!

  • anyone over the age of 13 who hasn't yet grasped the concept of "you're" vs. "your." it freaks me out that people are allowed to graduate from high school without being able to differentiate.
  • women who can't walk in high heels, yet insist on wearing high heels. wearing flats is far more attractive than stumping around like your ankles are crying out for mercy with every step.
  • license plate frames and bumper stickers meant to make you feel bad about not being a Christian. extra points go to those "praying Calvin" stickers. (normally I also hate the "Calvin peeing on _______" stickers, but I would make an exception for a sticker of Calvin peeing on Calvin praying.)
  • anime. the only thing worse than anime is diehard anime fans.
