Matters of the Heart

I really like using the phrase "I heart (blank)." I like saying it better than "I love" even though I'm essentially saying the same thing. I guess I prefer to reserve love for people I know. There's something whimsical about using "I heart," especially over IM and other written media. Here are some things that I heart:

I heart meat. Bacon, sausage links, sausage patties, italian sausages, linguica, chorizo, steak, ribs...

I heart sushi. I especially love hamachi and o toro when I can afford it. Bryan once told me that I need sushi like I need air...

I heart pink ladies. Really, they're the only apples I'll eat. And I'll only eat the ones from Davis' Farmer's Market...

I heart citrus. Oranges, clementines, pomelos, grapefruit, lemons, limes, blood oranges...

I heart the British. Their accents, their wit, their humor, their sarcasm, their honesty, their snobbery...

I really heart Disneyland. I can never fall asleep the night before going to Disneyland because I get too excited.

Other things I heart: spring in Davis, new hobbies, tv show "How it's Made"

PS: Readers in Davis, Saturday is National Pig Day! The Farmer's Market will be featuring piggies you can pet and piggies you can eat. I'll be there!

poor piggies-you-can-eat...it's funny you put it in the same sentence as "piggies you can pet" because visually in my brain i imagined cute piggies-you-can-pet and then the next word is piggies-you-can-eat so suddenly the cuties are on a stick, barbecued :(

...And I heart Peggy! I will start including that expression more! My most recent blog entry will incorporate some of that...

This is random. I'm sitting here, hitting Ctrl+R every other minute on the NY Times website to see how Obama is doing. At the point where I realize I'm being updated on votes by the tens, yes, the tens (not the hundreds or thousands), I tame my anxiety by reading up on the blogs I've stored in Favorites (there might be a condition related to such Favorite-saving proclivities).

Which brings me here. I see The Llama and read up on Mark's musings. I then stumble onto pegpie's equally crafty wordsmith-ing (that might be a made up word).

Anyhow, you guys are both great writers. While I have an aversion to saying I heart anything, I will make an exception and say that I heart springtime in Davis =)

Cheers from snowy Ann Arbor,

Steve (of Davis)

Are you a "piggy you can pet"? Does your mom still collect pigs? He he he.
