That I'm only 15 pages into Ready Player One and it has found a way to unobtrusively include a ton of 80s pop culture references.

I :love: the 80s

I love soup. It's still a bit warm out to be eating it often but man, it hits the spot sometimes.

I also love that this thread is only 9 pages behind the Hate thread when at one point it was half the Hate's size. w0ot for more loving and less hating.

I love that there is more love on Pweb! Someday it'll overtake the hate thread. Well, maybe.
I used to hate gravity because it would not let me fly. Now I realize it is gravity that lets me stand.

I LOVE soup, and I love that I can stand to eat it about 75% of the year around here : )

Oh yes I love soup. Were it socially acceptable, I would probably eat it for every occasion.

Maybe not, might get sick of it. But I love it so much.

That sounds effing awesome, buckshot. I want.

I love soup, too! Rei is less of a fan, but he'll eat it if I make sure there's lots of bread on the side. Roasted red pepper and black bean, spinach and cilantro, middle eastern lentils (gotta come up with a better name), those are some of my current favourites. Yummm.

It was in the evening and by chance; I wasn't even birding. I was taking a zumba class that was held outdoors at a local park. I saw the bird flying overhead for most of the class (I was VERY distracted). I ran home and got my camera as soon as class was over but only got a few shots before it disappeared.

I love nectarines.

I especially love that I got a bunch for free because my brother's girlfriend's parents' tree produced a crap ton of fruit this year.

They are my favoritest fruit ever! Try one cut up with cookies and cream ice cream. I swear, it's heaven!

Jam! My count as of tonight was 29 jars of jam made. And we're only part way through the season! I know what everyone's getting for Christmas this year, haha! Though I'm going to mix it up and make and can some barbeque sauce, chai concentrate, and possibly some chutney or mustard as well, so there's a nice variety.

Awesome.

I love that at an age when most kids are still learning how to talk, my 2.5 year old not only speaks in long, clear sentences, but she also plays around with her speech. She likes to choose a letter and make each word she says start with that letter, instead of the word's normal first letter. It's so cute!

I love that my Arkham Horror box is getting so dog-eared and scratched. I buy things used so often that I sometimes forget when something I have that looks used has been turned that way by me. It's a cool feeling, especially when it's not from any specific incident, but just from repeated use.

Dragonball Z

I used to question the male species' fascination with it. And then I watched all of Dragonball and Dragonball Z in the past year and fell in love. GT is a little more challenging to love.

More often than not I'm woken up around sunrise when Maggie decides she wants to crawl into bed with me and will start kneading at the hem of my blanket to signal me to lift it up so she can curl up against my stomach and/or chest. Lately, since it's been pretty freaking warm at night, I'm not under the blanket, so she's been kneading my arm to signal that I both need to get the blanket and let her under it.

But this morning I was woken up by her licking my knuckles. It was adorable and cute.

Sometimes I love my kitties.

Call me crazy, but I actually find this XKCD: What If? fairly romantic. I don't believe in soulmates, but in finding a mate that you fall in love with and make things work with. Someone who feels like a soulmate. So the idea that there couldn't be soulmates, mathmatically speaking, makes long term relationships more romantic, because they aren't dependent on some outside force to make them romantic.

That probably makes no sense, except in my head. But...it's something I love.
