    Here are some things that I don’t like:

    1. Ankle socks. They make even the finest of legs look bad.
    2. Studio portraits larger than 5 x 7 framed on a wall.
    3. Wood paneling.
    4. Blond wood.
    5. A copy of “Footprints in the Sand” hanging on a wall.
    6. Red beards.
    7. Having the skin underneath my jaw or on the back of my elbows touched.
    8. Mock turtlenecks — dickies, as it were.
    9. White hightops.
    10. Bathrooms that have lights with built-in fans. I can’t hear what’s going on outside the bathroom, and it gives me anxiety. I always expect the world to be different when I come out from an extended bathroom trip.

    Other than that, I’m cool.

  • Aww-I love ankle socks-especially cute ones. I feel like puffy socks or fold down socks make me look like I have cankles. Knee-highs are good, if my legs aren’t too fat to stretch out the pattern. Those puffy scrunchy socks from the eighties were crazy-my step-sister used to layer them (alternatively) to match her oversize t-shirt with puffy paint and plastic t-shirt clip. So Degrassi. So cool.

  • i’m with you on all of your dislikes. however, i must clarify that dickies are actually different than mock turtlenecks. mock turtlenecks are the low turtleneck collars that do not fold over…..dickies are actually fake collars that are not attached to a shirt. one would wear them underneath a sweater to create the illusion that there is a shirt underneath – even though there isn’t. they sort of tuck into the neckline of a sweater. they were especially popular during the 1950s (think lace collars hanging outside of a form fitting sweater). i absolutely cannot stand mock turtlenecks but have a love of the dickie because it’s sort of sneaky. and the name is cool.
