- the smell of swimming pools
I used to love walking past the vent outside the swimming pool at school – you could smell the chlorine :) 10 months ago
- pineapple on pizza (and fruit in general, when served with a savoury dish)
This seems to be one of those things that’s a love-it-or-hate-it thing. It’s just so wrong!! :P (Saying that, there’s so much that we put on a pizza that Italians would say that about, so I’m hardly being purist here, but still…!)
I’ve even had tuna and pineapple pizza, which is doubly wrong, because I don’t like seafood on pizza either! I don’t even like tuna! 11 months ago
- deep-pan or stuffed crust (with cheese) pizzas with barbecue toppings (i.e. chicken, bacon, mushrooms, peppers, onions, barbecue sauce, minus tomato)
I like the stuffed crust from Pizza Hut and I nearly always have the barbecue deluxe. In fact, I can’t remember when I had anything else there… :P 11 months ago
- red wine
I can drink white and rosé of pretty much any kind, but have never liked red wine. Too robust for me. 11 months ago
- White Russians
It’s like an iced coffee with booze – how can this not be awesome?! :) I tried my first one sometime in the New Year this year, having been tempted to try it after watching The Big Lebowski. I’d meaning to try it for ages, but never got round to it. Now, it’s my favourite drink :) 11 months ago
- an iced coffee made with cold black coffee that tastes like it has about 17 shots in it, often with whipped cream on top
I ordered an iced coffee when I was out shopping about 10 years ago, looking forward to a nice refreshing cold milky coffee on a hot day. I got the above and even though I added about 7 sugars to it, it just made it bitter-sweet, instead of making it palatable, so I gave up disappointed :( I normally have 2 teaspoons of sugar to 1 teaspoon of coffee, to give you an idea of how weak I like it. Coffee connoisseurs will be appalled :P 11 months ago
- coffee drinks
This should be number one, really, but I absolutely love milky coffee drinks! :) My mum used to make iced coffee over the summer when I was a kid, and I always loved it. I then started to drink it anytime of year, and when I was at uni, would go through 3 pints of milk a day, making iced coffees! I try pretty much any cold milky coffee drink going, and my favourite is the Starbucks Mocha Discoveries one. I wish I could just get it coming out of the tap!! :P 11 months ago
I was looking forward to this film, but was very disappointed. Didn’t care about the characters for the most part, which makes it hard to care about what happens to them. 11 months ago
It should almost be “so bad, it’s good”, but sadly, no. It’s just bad. And incredulous. 11 months ago
- The Culture novels
(I’ve not finished them, but everything I’ve read so far, I love!) 11 months ago
- shit sequels
I loved Pirates of the Caribbean. It was awesome. I went to see the second one at the cinema and was underwhelmed. I also went to see the third installment at the cinema and wish I could have got my money and my time back.
I can’t believe there’s going to be a fifth one! :( This picture is exactly how Johnny Depp should look when approached with any script for any PotC sequel…
I feel that if it weren’t for the appeal of Captain Jack Sparrow to a helluva lot of females, there wouldn’t be this many sequels, ‘cause they sure as hell ain’t going for the plot! 11 months ago
(Partly because he plays for Man Utd. and being a Bolton fan, of course I hate Man Utd :P But mainly, it’s because he fancies himself so much – seriously, in the match between Germany and Portugal, he looked to have prepared himself for the second half by…. doing his hair. Pssshh…) 11 months ago
To follow up my previous entry, here is my hierarchy of how much I like the animal kingdom. All the stuff in red counts as “dislike #5” – it’s simpler than listing them all separately!
- mammals (excl. rodents)
- butterflies and dragonflies
- any dry-skinned reptiles with legs, i.e. lizards, iguanas
- other reptiles
- tiny slow-moving spiders
- “slimy” things and invertebrates, i.e. worms, maggots etc.
- other spiders
- other insects
As for the rest of the wildlife that lives in the ocean, mainly I think “WTF?” – a lot of it is weird, deadly, ranging from anything between beautiful and ugly. I would generally stay clear, not knowing what’s OK and what isn’t.
I have a massive phobia of insects specifically, and a fairly typical amount of fear of snakes and spiders. I can’t deal with anything about insects – pictures, cartoons, sounds, it creeps me out thinking about it to write this, so now I’m stopping, and this one doesn’t get a picture either… shudder :( 11 months ago
