10 Things I Don't Hate About Me...

Vanessa here...

8:50 p.m. on a Friday night. Man, this has been a shitty week. After all the crap Hunter put me through, he had the nerve to send me an e-mail and ask if we could have drinks tonight. And you know what I did? I deleted it. I mean, honestly! Does he think I'm a desperate fool and that I can be friends with him?

I spent the majority of this week totally hating myself. Hating that I wasn't sexy enough or tempting enough. What was it about me that pushed him to sleep with some skank? I've been blaming myself when I really should blame...him.

So, William just ordered Chinese food, got us some DVDs and a bottle of wine and we're having Girl's Night.

He also told me that I have to find 10 things I like about myself. Or as I call it "10 Things I Don't Hate About Me." So, here we go:
  1. I don't hate my hair. It's this goldy-brown and and it behaves more than it doesn't.
  2. I don't hate my feet. I have really dainty feet with nicely shaped toes.
  3. I don't hate my personality. I'm outgoing and bubbly. Someone will appreciate it.
  4. I don't hate my laugh. I've been told it's infectious.
  5. I don't hate my apartment, although I do hate my landlord.
  6. I don't hate my car. It's been with me since sophomore year in college. It's a trap, but it's paid for.
  7. I don't hate my parents. Although they hound me about "coming home," they love and support me in their own way.
  8. I don't hate my friends. They're the bestest and always lift me up.
  9. I don't hate the Yankees. Okay, I know that's not about me, but it sort of is 'cause I live in Boston and there's this bitter rivalry. I respect that they're a good team, but I just can't get embroiled in the fever of hating them. Now, don't get me started on hockey...
  10. I don't hate my life. I'm healthy, I have a roof over my head, food in the fridge, a job that helps pays the bills and clothes on my back. Looking at what Katrina did to people, I shouldn't complain.

And I'll add an eleven...I don't hate Hunter. I feel sorry for him 'cause he missed out on what a great gal I am.'s that for positive reinforcement!

So, what don't you hate about you? Speak up!

Hang loose and tune in tomorrow for Weekend Eye Candy...

Loved your list.
Very happy to hear that you have such a long one. Good!
Me? ...pass.
I will only say that I like to say good things to people. Sometimes when I do, it's at a time when they need to hear a nice thing, whatever it is. It's happened quite a few times, and it is a wonderful feeling to know I've been able to lighten someone's emotional load, if only a moment.
Guess that's all.
