Good To Know
"I'm addicted to Lonely Planet guides. Naturally, I'll buy one whenever I take a trip somewhere, but it goes beyond that: I've begun buying them for cities and countries I just hope to visit one day. I read all the minutiae for a given place, so that when (or really if) I ever get there, I'll know where to sleep, sightsee, and meet lots and lots of Australian backpackers."
"My obsession with jeans is bordering on the unhealthy, especially my ability to justify how many pairs I currently own or ‘need.' With very, very few exceptions (black-tie weddings being the only one that comes to mind), I wear jeans everywhere, for all occasions. The rest of the outfit doesn't interest me all that much and certainly doesn't inspire this level of devotion, but I'm both proud and embarrassed to admit that I can identify brand and fit from a distance of six city blocks."
"I am inordinately skilled at stalking people online. Googling is for amateurs: if you're serious about finding someone (and I am), there are so many better ways of approaching it. Typing someone's name and college into the computer and reading what comes up won't get you very far. Try to be more creative. For example, if you want to know more about an author, read the acknowledgments in their books, search their name and the names of the people they thank simultaneously, and work from there. Same goes for a guy you might like: try typing in keywords like ‘dating,' ‘girlfriend,' and ‘sex' to see if it unearths anything more interesting than his high school swimming records. I can't believe I'm admitting to this right now."
