TOP 10 LIKES (in no particular order)
1. STEPPING ON LIT CIGARETTES
2. PLAYING CEE-LO
*the perfect way to score lunch money from your unassuming classmates that didn’t grow up in the hood
3. PEOPLE WATCHING
(they’re so similar in so many ways and they have no clue).
4. CHILDREN SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGES/ HAVING ACCENTS
(my kids will be forced to speak with a french accent…how cute is this little croissant)
5. CAMERAS (big and small)
(in the event that i carry a handbag, you will find at least 3 cameras and that’s all. i carry my wallet in my pocket…like a dude.
6. MAKING STUFF (drawing on sheets, making hummus or taking a picture)
*screened in 2003 on a piece of a cabinet wood that i found on the street. holla.
7. RACISM WITH A SENSE OF HUMOR
seriously. i like when people are indiscriminately racist. my dad is good at this…poking fun at all races and cultures, even himself. what fun is life when you take it too serious. maybe that’s the lazy west indian in me (pun intended).
8. “CRACKER STUFF” (what is deemed as “cracker” by my black friends, it’s pretty wide)
vegan food, engineer boots, wearing the same outfit 3x in a row, “white people music” (DEPECHE MODE, THE CURE, MEGADETH, THE SMITHS, etc) skateboarding culture, hardcore music, birkenstocks, reading DEEPAK CHOPRA, goth style, etc…
9. SLEEPING, NAPPING & DAY DREAMING
i could sleep for 10 hours or more, if given the chance. i’ve slept through earthquakes, classes and certain boring conversations. i have the attention span of a gnat and the metabolism of an infant.
10. HOT SAUCE
the hotter the better. i like it when food is so hot, my nose starts to run…only i don’t know if it’s snot or blood. haha, that sounds crazy. my dad makes the best hot sauce. eff those common hot sauces that are hot with no flavor or the ones with no heat and no flavor.
