Probably within reach of a coffee


Probably within reach of a coffee

Spend my day running the family coffee biz. I like noodles. I don’t like cigarettes. I like jeans. I don't like country music. I like when things have a spot that they always go back to. I don't like podcasts.  I like big dogs. I don't like cold feet. I like my AirPods. I don’t like umbrellas. I like landscape photography. I don’t particularly like beaches. I like having a daily routine even though it makes me feel a little old. I don't like people giving me unsolicited advice. I like deleting songs that I have decided no longer fit on a playlist. I don't like holiday or seasonal creep. I like supporting my fellow local, small businesses. Although I used to love it when I was a kid, I don't like baseball. Although I am no expert, I like that I can get by just enough when eating with chopsticks. I don't like to shave which is why I have a beard although I'll admit it's only an OK beard. I like using Apple Pay because I don't have to carry anything but my phone. I don't like my workspace to be messy although I'm pretty chill when places that are not my workspace are messed up. I like that my daughter says the only normal dad thing I do is watch football. I don't like Band Aids that won't stick on well after they get just a little bit barely wet. I like to be really, really fast, when I have to shop in a brick & mortar store. I don't like scented soap. I like reading the news, not watching it. I don't like meetings especially the ones that last more than 45 minutes. Even though it makes me feel like a spoiled softy, I like my car's heated steering wheel. I don't like when I forget never, NEVER! read the comments on the internet. I like a short nap on a comfy couch. I don't like that I'm supposed to keep organized files and hard copies and records in this supposed digital, paperless age. I like being the first one in my family to discover something new. I don't like when important things don't have deadlines because if it doesn't have one, I never seem to get it done. I like to come home and immediately put on a hoodie. I don't like ridiculously large pickup trucks. I like when I can see the raw data and draw my own conclusion. I don’t like when I wake up two minutes before my alarm is going to go off. I like backhanded compliments when people are trying to complain. I don't like all the cuts and rashes I get from all the cardboard packaging I have to deal with. I like that I'm not a novice photographer, but man, I am so far from being good at it. I don't like car rides without music. I like cheap eyeglasses because it's not like expensive ones are going to make me prettier and I know I would lose or break expensive ones. I don't like insulated travel mugs because they do their job too well and the drink never cools off so I can drink it. I like having the same five tabs open on my web browser all the time (sorry, all for work, not MDL). I don't like when a customer orders "My usual" and I have no idea what their usual is. I like researching big purchases. I don't like that for some of my vendors, the easiest way to order is still to make a call and talk to someone. I like giving gifts that have some practical purpose which is why so many things I give are related to food. I don't like how stressful it is to try to get ready to go on a vacation. I like a lot of movie characters, but I probably like Edna Mode and Anton Ego more than any others. I don't like when people want to one-up what I just said instead of, y'know, listening to me and caring about what I'm saying. I like the NYT Cooking app. I don’t like how I don’t seem to be able to sleep when I travel. I like a pair of really good socks even if they’re expensive. I don’t like hearing about the girl from my high school that got famous as a food blogger. I like eating breakfast at non-breakfast times of the day. It's not that I mind being told to do things, but I don't like when I'm told that I have to drop what I'm doing right now and do something else immediately. I like limes far more than lemons. I don't like that being a less than completely obsessed fan makes me feel like I'm being looked down on by the completely obsessed fans. I like ignoring the directions and figuring it out by myself with trial & error. I don't like when I go back to regular broadcast channels and have to sit through commercials. Admitting I'm wrong isn't fun but I do like that I like that I'm open-minded enough to change my thinking. I'm not bad at trivia but, thanks to one of my nephews, I don't like trivia games. I like setting a low bar and being pleasantly surprised more than I like the opposite. I don’t like how we spend so much time and money on yard work. I like how, with very rare exceptions, everything defies attempts to simplify them. I don't like glare on my screen. I like not wearing a coat until it is well below freezing. I don't like that the tracking information on package shipments is so unreliable. I like resealable bags. I don't like events that are purely ceremonial. I like using milk crates for all kinds of things because they have handles, are stackable and virtually indestructible. I don't like how I have clothes that I'll never wear again and they won't just magically vanish from my closet. I like drama shows but not drama in real life.

I have rankings. I have opinions. Lots of 'em. Want to know what I think? Just ask. I like sharing my thoughts. 

My reviews:

9.5 - one of the best shows ever

9.0 - one of the best shows of the year

7.5-8.5 - definitely an enjoyable show, but not necessarily a must watch or memorable production

5.5-7.0 - not a bad watch, but probably not for everyone and definitely has weaknesses

3.5-5.0 - might have some positives, but outweighed easily by the negatives

3.0 or below - Ugh. I regret watching any of it.

I have only given one drama and one movie a 10. It's possible I would give out more in the future, but nothing I am currently watching has a chance and I'm skeptical that any are on the horizon.  Also, I don't read reviews that have a 10 rating.
