Just some random facts in no particular order. Why? For no particular reason.

Drink of choice
1) Gin & tonic (Hendricks & tonic, to be specific) -- actually this is my #1 drink of choice.
2) Mojito
3) Champagne

Guilty pleasures [music]
1) Show tunes (I'm a straight guy who likes musicals. So what?)
2) To 40 cheesy pop (Britney, Pussycat Dolls, Westlife, etc.)
3) ABBA (for sentimental reasons. Reminds me of car rides with my dad.)

Guilty pleasures [TV] -- requires more than a top 3
1) What Not to Wear
2) Say Yes to the Dress
3) Project Runway/Top Chef/Shear Genius
4) Cartoons (I'm still a kid at heart)
5) Platinum Weddings/Bridezillas/Who's Wedding is it Anyway?

Guilty pleasures [movies]
1) Chick flicks

Movies I'm dying to see
1) Wolverine movie
2) Nine
3) The remaining Harry Potter films

Favorite musicals
1) Aida (actually, this is my #1)
2) She Loves Me
3) Les Miserables

Favorite plays
1) Othello
2) The Walworth Farce
3) A Midsummer Night's Dream

Favorite TV shows -- requires more than a top 3
1) Pushing Daisies
2) Fraiser
3) Golden Girls
4) The Simpsons
5) Gilmore Girls/Charmed/Xena (gone, but will never be forgotten) -- would also fall under guilty pleasures

Favorite words -- there are more than these 3, but I just can't think of them at the moment.
1) Bosom (fast or slow, the word sounds funny and tickles the tongue)
2) Indubitably (fun to say and it reminds me of Mary Poppins)
3) Blasphemy

Favorite articles of clothing
1) Sweater vests
2) Argyle socks
3) Sweaters/hoodies

OCD habits:
1) Collect all my fortune cookie fortunes. Furthermore, I believe you CANNOT open it until you feel you are completely finished eating your food and you MUST eat all the cookie or your fortune won't come true. I also believe that the first cookie you touch is yours (as in when you are eating Chinese food in a group); if you touch one cookie and then decide to grab another, then the fortunes are null and void.
2) Cannot begin eating my plate of food until I rotate the dish into what I deem is the correct alignment. For example, the chicken needs to be on the left or the fries have to be at a specific angle from my right hand.
3) Proper location and methods for all things. Toothpaste HAS to be pushed down from the end and NOT from the middle or items involved in shaving must be placed in order of usage before I can begin shaving. All my belongings have a proper place and it aggravates me when they are put in their incorrect location (e.g. iPod goes in the right side of the glove compartment, phone sits in the left cup holder, flip flops are always to the right of my sneakers, etc.)

I could go on like this forever, so I'll just stop now. Don't know why I began this list to begin with anyway. Just felt like doing it.

  1. Great post, Roberto!

    This is a riot, because I wrote a post a while back, which I haven't published yet about my enjoyment of chick flicks. I'm sorry, but I love them. Give me a Meg Ryan film ANYDAY!

    Isn't Golden Girls the best?

    And your OCD habits made me howl, because there's a few in there that I can totally indentify with!!

  2. Hey, Ron!

    While there are some chick flicks that are just too too chick flicky, I generally enjoy watching them. Romy & Michelle, Clueless, Hope Floats, Moulin Rouge, Practical Magic, etc. I love them all.

    And Golden Girls is totally the best. I own the entire series. I will actually be watching it today in memory of Bea Arthur. She just died, and that is so sad. Only 2 are left now. :(

    R.I.P. Bea

    Whats your starsign? Im guessing either Virgo or Aries :)

    I believe your OCD's are called "Anal Retentive". I fully accepted and embraced the term a few years ago and have felt great about it ever since :)

  4. hahaha. I totally am anal retentive. I like my routines.

    I am actually a Pisces. I've always thought I was a total Piscean, but I apparently give off a Virgo or Aries vibe. Too funny.

  5. Im Virgo and definitely know Aries who are just as bad. Virgos dont do actual "routines" so well...well, this one definitely doesnt.
