An annotated list of my interests as at January 2005 So have you heard about livejournal? Of course you have! it’s this v. intuitive blogging software that took the world by storm circa 2000-2002. I signed up for an account in 2005 basically so I could put a nice icon on the comments I made to other livejournalers. When you sign up, you are asked for a list of your interests. I felt it would be interesting to revisit a list of things I claimed to be interested in at the time. The list has been annotated as follows:
Bold: Things I am still interested in
Underlined: Things I was interested in but am not interested in anymore
Italics: Things I was never interested in and only put on the sheet in order to look interesting
ALL CAPS: Things whose inclusion on the list I cannot comprehend.
8 women, about a boy, allure magazine, american history, andrea levy, ann patchett, banana yoshimoto, before sunrise, before sunset, bill bryson, buffy the vampire slayer, cargo, chloe sevigny, chris rock, CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN, chungking express, crazy/beautiful, dave, DAVID STARKEY(who is this man?), defamer, digital photography, dvds, entertainment weekly, eric satie, freeform five, french food, gabriel garcia marquez, garden state, geoffrey chaucer, ghost world, ibook, ibook g4, ivy league, jack johnson, jason mraz, jeff buckley, jennifer weiner, john irving, john mayer, jon stewart, london, los angeles, mac, macintosh, madonna, manhattan, manicures, margaret atwood, mark haddon, mcgill university, MIDDLEMARCH, modest mouse, moliere, new york times, nylon magazine, ottawa, paris, relaxers, sake, san francisco, sarah slean, say anything, scrubs, shakespeare, suede magazine, sushi, teen vogue, the daily show, the killers, the o.c., the robber bride, the shins, the west wing, tom ford, us weekly, voltaire
There is of course a corollary to the Italics category which is things I didn’t put on the list for fear of looking boring, things like President’s Choice food products, the BackStreet Boys, Star Trek: Voyager and more yet that I am not willing to commit to the page/screen.
