De gustibus non est disputandum

There are certain things that I wish I liked. I mean, I really want to like them and I keep trying but it just doesn't happen. In no particular order:

Yoga - granted, I've only been to an official class twice, but I was horrible at it both times. I've actually got pretty good balance, but you wouldn't have known it as I staggered and swayed through the moves.

Sweet potatoes - the answer to your question is YES. I know how good they are for you and I want to be the type of person that eats them every day. And YES - I have tried them baked, I have tried them broiled. I have tried them sweet and I have tried them savory. I have tried them as fries, chips, mashed and at Thanksgiving. I think it must be something to do with the texture.

Foie gras - I guess I don't really care if I like Foie gras, but it is certainly difficult to be fancy if I don't. Guess I'm destined not to be fancy, because again.... the texture of this delicacy leaves much to the imagination for me.

Touchscreens - one of these days iPhones will be cheap, and at that point I will get one. But for now, YES - I really do prefer the keyboard of my blackberry. I also prefer the fact that I got the brand new one for one cent. As in one penny. (Go to Amazon wireless and you can get a .01 phone too!)
I try to type on the touch screen keypad just so I can practice, and I don't like it. I think it says in the Constitution that I don't have to like touchscreens if I don't want to. (Now the iPad I can dig. It is a little bigger so it isn't quite as frustrating. I will get one of those one of these days.)

Pleather purses - Just so you don't think I am all "holier than thou" because I don't like liver or iPhones, I will admit that I am ruined when it comes to purses. I've just reached a point in my life where I don't want to carry a purse if it isn't leather.

Going to the gym - I don't really like to exercise. I tolerate it because it is necessary. I have been going daily since our return from New Orleans due to the excessive amount of food I inhaled, but I'm always just trying to get through the workout. This also applies to running. I think I would be an excellent runner, as I don't really mind it when I actually do it. It is just the whole business of having to get up and go run that I dislike.

You - ha! Just kidding. Of course I like you. I just didn't want to end this entry by admitting that I would prefer to be a couch potato than a gym rat.

Good for you on going to the gym!!!! I am with you on that one. Me pants are tight, and not in a good way.

I'll do the yoga, eat the sweet potatoes and foie gras for you. You can eat cabbage for me (if you like that sort of thing. ew.)

Ew. Fwa gra is not good. It is a food rich people eat to prove they're rich. :) Ok, maybe thats a bit harsh... but FATTENED LIVER?!

(I've never tried escargot, but I will. And I will HATE it. And I will eat it anyway, because I really want to like it.:)
