Love / Hate

I love
Rainy sundays when nothing is planned. Cold. Raw. The smell of wet dirt permeating the air outside, while I'm inside in pajamas with a steaming cup of coffee. (Especially during Football season!)

I hate
Trying to read something that’s be written with no regard for grammar. Must have punctuation. Must have individual, identifiable paragraphs.

I love
My family. My wife and children are what keeps me going.

I hate
The following phrases: “Same difference”, “don’t hate the player, hate the game”, “six of one, half dozen the other”, “working hard or hardly working”.

I love
Windows 7.

I hate
Running behind schedule.

I love
When someone who talks trash gets bit on the ass by it.

I hate
When I get bit on the ass by my own trash talk. (which is why I almost never do it!)

I love
Working from home.

I hate
The fact that I have to work to survive, even though:

I love
My job and the work that I do.

I hate
When people say they hate closed-minded people. Doesn’t that make them closed-minded toward people who are closed-minded??

I love
The work of George Carlin, Bill Cosby, and Mel Brooks.

I hate
Saying goodbye.

I love
Skype!

I hate
The fact that I can’t get my dog to stop digging holes in my yard… Grr… It’s a good thing:

I love
My dog.

I hate
The fact that people are capable of such tremendous evil, and inflicting such horrible pain.

I love
Watching my children grow up.

I hate
That my children are growing up so fast.

I love
To listen to stories of old times told by people who are older than me. Time is by far the best teacher.

I hate
My dependence on spell check. (F7 for your Microsoft Word users!)

I love
The fact that I can type almost as fast as most people talk.

I hate
Moxy and Mr. Pibb

I love
Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Dr. Pepper.

I hate
The fact that I love soda so much!

I love
Singing along to the radio when I’m alone in the car, pretending I’m the lead singer rocking out in front of thousands of fans.

I hate
My singing voice.

I love
The quote: Nature and wisdom never are at strife.

I hate
The quote: Necessity is the mother of invention. There’s much more to invention than simple necessity. I think sometimes the mother is greed, sloth or jealousy… then sometimes it could also be compassion, love, or empathy. Just because something was invented doesn’t mean it was a necessity. Perhaps just a creature comfort. I don’t NEED super comfy pillows, but boy am I glad someone invented them!

I love
My super comfy pillows. o

I hate
Being lied to.

I love
Peanut butter cups.

I hate
That so many kids have peanut allergies now that schools are sometimes required to be peanut free.

I love
Solving problems.

I hate
Being yelled at.
