in the name of simple gratitudes

Hat tip to The Mental Illness Happy Hour for the idea, which I've wanted to implement for a while now.

I love listening to news clips from the 80s, especially ones featuring Tom Brokaw and Dan Rather,

I love the polished floors of auto mechanic garages.

I love the curl of frost that comes out when you open a bottle of champagne.

I love sleeping in t-shirts with graphics or sayings too ridiculous to wear in public.

I love when people, without asking whether I even like the variation, take the liberty of calling me "Elle" (or "El" or however they mentally spell it) instead of Ellie.
