Trendy Wendy

Oh sure NOW the rest of the world is catching up to my favorite obsession. In the Freep this morning there is over two pages of HP stuff. A couple of full page pictorials, costume contests and recapping the series-- blah blah blah...There is little mention of Snape. That's okay he is always in my head. You know me... to paraphrase Jim Butcher--I like my fantasy characters like I take my coffee...dark and bitter!!

That phrase makes me giggle. I have thinking about other grammatically similar phrases...in fact; much like fictional band names (the winner of which is still Pussy Toupee)--I have decided to start collecting "preference similes". For example--I like my men like I like my tea...weak and green. (Okay I don't like weak green men at all, but it is funny!) Or how about..."I like my books like I like my sausage..spicy and linked." Maybe..."I prefer poetry like my vodka-- clear and smooth."
I haven't quite settled on a chocolate simile yet-- something about "dark & rich" or one for fighters--tho "butch and bald" keeps drifting around...what 'choo got?
