ann friedman, pie charts, popularity
Exactly 50% of these things do appeal to me.
@Margaret_Catwood Vacationing in Iceland, Anal, Book Clubs, and Candy Crush Saga?
@Margaret_Catwood Candy Crush + Childbirth + Iceland OR Stunts + [Candy Crush/Childbirth] + Burning Man.
I totally remember these problems from elementary school!
@Jizzcliner Dang, missed that one!
@Margaret_Catwood 67%, for my part.
Cosign on Candy Crush and the publicity gimmick, but I would be okay with the rest of them.
Oh wait, I guess I do not want to go through childbirth since I already have too many damn kids.
Co-sign on all of these.
Facebook. (Okay, Facebook appeals to me a little bit, but I resist.)
50%: watching prestige dramas about the psyches of white dudes
@cuminafterall We have extremely similar disinterests.
Music festivals. Eating cupcakes.
30% large crowds
30% loud music
10% waiting in line for food
10% shoes that show my toes
i am a total square. to the point where, on a date recently, when the guy asked what i was into, i said "oatmeal and pbs" with a smile on my face.
Oatmeal and PBS are super great. Come sit by me.
Also, what was his response?
he just kind of nodded with semi-bewildered-neutral-pleasant-face, haha. i think he couldn't parse whether i was joking or not. i kind of was, but i kind of wasn't too, so i don't fault him for it!
and then he said he was into "music festivals and adrenaline rushes," which i think was similarly both true and tongue-in-cheek.
@yeah-elle @Barracuda How do you take your oatmeal? I've got a fresh batch on the stove right now...
@laurel OH MAN DON'T GET ME STARTED
most of the time i eat it with instant coffee stirred in...which is kind of sacrilegious and gross, maybe, but i like it.
the rest of the time...with cinnamon. and almonds! or with PEANUT BUTTER, it's so good with a spoon of peanut butter mixed in. sometimes i put a little hot chocolate mix in.
oh, and always some honey stirred in, of course.
people, give me your favorite oatmeal recipes!
@yeah-elle cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, dried cherries, pecans, and maple syrup. And it must be very thick. Basically, an oatmeal cookie.
@yeah-elle My favorite is with a broiled banana and some really dark molassesy Muscovado brown sugar.
Today it's with maple syrup, currants and coconut milk.
@yeah-elle I have been known to stir a spoonful of nutella into oatmeal myself.
crap, i am so hungry now.
@yeah-elle I was wondering what to eat while I marathon the first two installments of The Hollow Crown on Sunday, and now you bring me the answer!
I like my oatmeal made with half water/half almond milk, a spoonful of brown sugar, a spoonful of PB, and a sliced-up banana mixed in. Although based on @Mae's comment above, might replace the brown sugar with Nutella.
Also good: toss a cardamom pod in while it's cooking. Fish it out, add blueberries and maple syrup. Gross-looking but YUM.
@yeah-elle Oh no, I think I just fell in love with you, whoops.
@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose why hello, let's eat oatmeal and watch pbs together.
@cuminafterall ahhhhh yes i keep looking in my schedule for a solid 3 hour chunk of free time so i can watch richard ii with hearts in my eyes. i'll watch ben whishaw in pretty much anything, but i am sooo excited to finally watch thissss.
@yeah-elle I'm totally in if slippers (toes covered, duh) can be involved.
@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose yes, also wrapping oneself in a blanket burrito-style, and/or comically large sweaters.
@yeah-elle A spoonful of canned pumpkin OR PUMPKIN PIE MIX is crazy delicious as well. Goes along with the other ideas of nutmeg-cinnamon-cardamom kind of goodness. Also, I like to cut up apple and cook it with the oatmeal so the apples get soft, with cinnamon, maple syrup, and butter. I've done bananas with a sprinkle of chocolate chips too, and some walnuts. Oatmeal is so good.
@yeah-elle It's like you're reading my mind.
@Sassafrass Ohhh, I am going to have to try the canned pumpkin.
For my part: berries of any kind cooked in, with cinnamon and salt.
Also, oat bran or steel-cut.
I like it with a little cinnamon, maybe some fresh peach slices. :)
@yeah-elle And then, when you have that extra pumpkin that you need to use up because it doesn't keep for very long, make these AMAZING Fannie Farmer pumpkin muffins. My apologies, I don't know how to do fancy links
Oh my god I have been eating oatmeal wrong my whole life???? How did my parents not raise me correctly?!
@Barracuda Yesss seconded on the peaches!
@gigglefest Don't worry. Your oatmeal begins now.
@yeah-elle so i haven't TRIED this yet - but it blew my mind when i saw it. PAN SEARED OATMEAL! (whaaaaaat?!) http://tinyurl.com/lqwwukn. you basically make oatmeal, and then let it set in a bread pan and then fry it. it's GOT to be good - right? and then its drizzled with honey and blueberries and it looks SO GOOD!
@angelinha I have adopted my parents' view that cruises sound nightmarish (v small posh/bougie ones excepted).
@ach_so Don't hate me, but the word "bougie" would for sure be on my pie.
What I like about cruises is the idea of unlimited food whenever you want it. What I don't like is most other things about cruises.
@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) I enjoyed my Greece/Turkey cruise last summer (and actually wrote about it here), even though there wasn't unlimited food whenever I wanted it (gasp!). Nice crew, nice passengers, and a great way to see a lot of places in a short time without packing up your crap every day.
Oh, and the unlimited drinks package. That was nice.
I feel very similarly, except I am actually kind of into the idea of a book club...
Breaking Bad. (Sorry!!! I tried a few episodes, swear.)
@nina! With you on this one, though I haven't even tried one episode. I'm just not into watching stuff that's going to cause me SO much anguish and heartbreak.
@nina! I watched episode one and that was enough for me. Way too painful to watch.
@Jinxie Exactly. I'm sure it's well-written and well-acted, but holy crap I had a panic attack during the first episode.
@nina! I barely made it through the first three - so much violence - but then after that it started getting *real* good. I recommend sticking it out!
I went to Burning Man a few years ago and had good time. Some things were not so good, but overall, yeah, it was good for me. I'd go again. It was fun to just walk or ride my bike everywhere and run into really far out art and people.
Also, I think anal is great. With lots of lube and a partner who listens, it can be amazing. Anal orgasms are a gorgeous thing.
I actually tried it the first time because I didn't want to have vaginal intercourse and thought, "Yeah, anal would be ok. It's not really sex." I loved it, it felt great and sometime thereafter I let go of that notion "It's not really sex, therefore it's ok" (thank you, strict religious upbringing).
Watching cable dramas with male anti-heroes
Hating on Justin Bieber
@large__marge Someecards have been ruined by the segment of Facebook that don't understand them. So, I'll take Someecards, too.
Co-sign on everything but vacationing in Iceland. Unless you mean vacationing in Iceland in winter, which HELL NO.
50% Mumford and Sons
@loren smith additional 50% to this tim horton's cookie my co-worker bought for me. Too sweet and chemically tasting!
Sports. Cruises. Dog ownership.
@beatrixkiddo1 You sound frighteningly like me.
Also, Downton Abbey (unfairly, because I haven't watched it, but it seems like Upstairs Downstairs with better production values).
@iceberg Also, Upstairs Downstairs has been revived with Alex Kingston playing a lesbian archaeologist/novelist so we don't need any other glitzy British soaps.
@boysplz UMMMM hello, Ms. Kingston.
Waxing my genitals. NO WAY am I having hot wax near my bits.
@ clara morena *Waiting* any more than 5 minutes for a cronut.
@ach_so Agreed! The two cronuts I have had (not from the original baker) were wonderful, and totally worth not waiting in line for. I'd rethink if more effort was required.
@swirrlygrrl or make them.....
Only 27% of this pie appeals to me. So you can replace that 27% with Dr. Who and we're good.
I love vacationing in Iceland! Currently trying to figure out how to ever save up enough $ to do it again. I think it might even be fun in winter.
What did you do in Iceland? I'm thinking of going to Iceland later this year.
@Barracuda we spent a week in Reykjavik wandering around, eating pastries, and going to concerts (it might have been slightly too long), and then a week driving the southern coast, looking at rocks and waterfalls and sheep and puffins. Jokulsarlon is maybe my favorite place ever. Food is not great there, especially as a vegetarian, but everything else was fabulous.
50%: most organized sports.
40%: bikini waxes of any nationality.
10%: owning a dog even a super cute and/or smart one I'm sorry I like dogs I just do not want to own one.
I have a Candy Crush Saga problem. CCS Anonymous is probably something I need.
Pretty much 90% of my pie would be childbirth.
Parades, amusement parks, fireworks, cats, most concerts, superheroes
@laurel I work with kids and I think the parents don't want to be parents.
I'd just say this pie is 100% perfect for me. A couple of those things aren't on my radar enough for me to care enough to be against them, but I can't be bothered with being clever enough to replace them right now.
ICELAND IS SO GREAT THOUGH
I want to give birth in Iceland whilst playing Candy Crush.
And never do anal at Burning Man, or a book club.
@JanieS "And never do anal at Burning Man" THE SAND OMG OW.
@Jinxie And the sunburn!
I tried my best to get addicted to Candy Crush, but I steadfastly refuse to spend money on it, so it didn't really work.
Also, Game of Thrones. I don't need that sort of imagery in my head, thanks.
This is the first one of these to which I fully relate! If only anal resulted in childbirth, so that it could be the main slice of the pie graph.
No, guy/girl on OKC. I do not ever want to go rock-climbing with you. Stop making this into the yoga of the 2010s.
@wee_ramekin but if we went rock climbing in Iceland, we could post pictures on OKC, because everyone knows that travel = you are automatically interesting!!
(Is it obvious that I've been hitting OKC a little hard lately, please tell me it's not)
@wee_ramekin I just assume at least 40% of the ones I see on OKC are lying - there is NO way there can be so many rock climbers in one (geographically small) city.
I thought I was the last person left on Earth who didn't play Candy Crush.
Hilariously enough, I would probably like it if I bothered to play it.
The shrill shrieking void of the universe
no longer howls
I no longer shudder and shake
clutched in the maw of solitude and loneliness
for lo, there are others who are as I am
100% living with/being responsible for any other living thing, including but not limited to: other humans, animals, plants
Having an iPhone (or an iPad). Or caring at all about what cell phone I own. And I truly wish everyone I know would simply just take me at my word on this.
American Horror Story. Love horror in general, but couldn't get into this at all.
Also, everything included in this pie chart.
Food photography. Most television. Pinterest. Inspirational quotes. The Hunger Games.
I agree with all.
I hear that book clubs sometimes masquerade as drinking clubs, which I am for.
I love vacationing in Iceland! Currently trying to figure out how to ever save up enough $ to do it again. I think it might even be fun in winter.dich vu massage cho ba bau tai nha
