My Favorites

Saturday, August 2nd, 2008

I almost never play along with these things… but it’s fun and I don’t need to process a photo to post it. It’s interesting, though… I think the word “favorite” is a very changing-target sort of thing. I don’t go in for pairing the words “favorite” and “forever,” I’m not loyal here. I guess I’m very in the moment, and I love many things.
