List Tuesday

Filed under:Uncategorized — posted by aBhantiarna Solas on August 23, 2005 @ 8:06 am

So ordinarily I’m a both/and kinda gal. I like combining things. Putting things and people together. I like including people. Pulling it all together … drawing the circle bigger as it were. But I have discovered as I’ve travelled this life that there are a few things that do not (I repeat … NOT) belong together. So … in honor of my Brickfriend … I present my List for List Tuesday …

These Things Do NOT Go Together:

1. Jazz and Celtic music.

2. Blueberries and Salmon.

3. Country and any other music … okay … country shouldn’t be considered a music form but that’s a post unto itself. It’s the only form of music I won’t listen to … EVER. Which tells you something.

4. Plaid and polka dots

5. Raisin bran and orange juice (and yes, I’ve seen someone actually eat this).

6. Blueberries and Lobster (hmm … I’m sensing a theme here).

7. Catsup (ketchup) and any Indian food.

8. Finally, because it is only exceptions that make a rule … here are two things that don’t belong together but somehow are and they work: A health/organic/vegetarian food store combined with a hardware store … yes, Virginia there is one up here in Machias, Maine. And somehow it works. Right next to the nine penny nails is a whole selection of Annie’s macaroni and cheese, a great selection of Indian food mixes, teas, a wall of spices and herbs and best of all, “Freedom Beans.”


  1. Freedom beans. Insert your ‘in terribly poor taste’ joke here.
