Stuff I'm supposed to like, but don't: Brie, the work of Mark Twain and John Steinbeck, C-SPAN (unless Tony Blair or Gerhard Schroeder are speaking, in which case I am fascinated), the Wall Street Journal, merlot and chardonnay, Apple computers (just the actual computers, not the iPods), running regressions on SPSS, talking endlessly about methodology, Elmo's voice (ST loves it, but it drives me nuts), babysitting other people's kids.
Stuff I like, but I'm not supposed to: Movies with talking animals (e.g., Dr. Doolittle), strawberry- and grape-flavored sodas, Windows, late-night infomercials about miraculous kitchen appliances, teaching undergrads in small liberal arts colleges (see previous post), writing narratives and constructivist arguments (not in this department!), the Wiggles (there's something about Anthony -- can anyone with a toddler back me up on this?!).
