-Peanut Butter and Nutella together
-Sandwiches

-Unseasonable heat
-Flip-flops
-The dentist

-Liquid/solid food combinations***
-People who crack their toes

Wow, should I take the fact that I can only think of 10 dislikes (outweighed by 17 likes) as a sign that I am an OPTIMIST? Or perhaps just being optimistic at this very moment. I'm tired. It is hard to concentrate on unlikable things. Given that I did leave out all the obvious ones that would just make me sound completely negative if I listed them... (i.e Death, rodents, axe-murderers, snakes, Death by being crushed by a vending machine, Roadkill, child molesters, mold, whining little kids who kick the back of your seat during movies and et cetera. . . see, aren't you glad I didn't?)


Footnotes:
*For the most part. The idea of it is nice; the people are weird.

**I suppose this contradicts "food in general".

***Cereal in milk, crackers in soup and so on.

I don't like jellybeans either!!!
I couldn't tell you exactly why I was so excited about that. I guess it's just because everyone seems to like jellybeans.

What is it that people like about Dr. Who? Not that I've seen any of it but it seems to be cult-like. I know a couple people who like it. Ahh!
