My hatred for neighboring bagels.

I'm sick to friggin' death of everyone saying the best bagels.

When I lived in upstate New York, it was nearly impossible for me to enjoy a bagel without someone saying, "You think that's good? You should have a Montreal bagel! They're out of this world!"

Now that I live under an hour away from Boston, all anyone talks about is how awesome the bagels in Boston are.

You know what? Maybe a bagel is a bagel and we should all just sit down in the current city we're living in, shut up, and eat whatever bagel we're given. I have yet to find a bagel that's made me swear off any and all other bagels for the rest of my life. Take any bagel (minus any that contain raisins... are you trying to poison me?) slap some cheese and bacon on it, and I'll eat it.

Make no mistake either; it's not like I'm not extremely picky about food. I have my brands and whatnot that I love, I just don't understand the fuss over something that's supposed to be as simple as a bagel. I guess I haven't lived until I've had a Montreal bagel and I don't know what a real bagel tastes like until I've had a Boston bagel, but you know what? It's a bagel. You know who else has bagels? Dunkin Donuts.

My love for Converse/Dark Purple

I sort of feel like I'm late getting on the band wagon for Converse shoes. Before my 24th birthday, I've never owned a pair of Chuck Taylors. I know! I'm sorry.

My husband and I were out shopping the other day with some friends that were visiting when we noticed Converse was having a sale. I've tried Converse on before, but I always thought they fit a little weird and I kinda hated it. They used to make me feel like I had clown shoes on because you usually have to buy a size or so up so the width is right. I don't know if my foot changed shape, but I love the feel of them now.

I decided I liked the style, but I wasn't infatuated with them until I saw these AMAZING purple shoes. I've been weirdly obsessed with purple lately, specifically this purple. This exact shade. I'm pretty sure that at this point in my life, I'd buy anything this color.

Needless to say, I bought 2 pairs. They were buy one get one half off after all. $60 for 2 pairs of the best shoes in the best color is the best deal ever, and I don't care what anyone says. I'm also especially glad I bought 2 pairs because I accidentally ripped the first pair a little because I was being fat and lazy and tried putting them on without untying them. BIG mistake.

I hope to one day find a dark purple belt to wear with these. Or a hoodie! Yes, a hoodie would be nice.
