What I Like About the Universe

As a preventative measure from slipping back into an "Insomnia Chronicles" style downward spiral, here is a sincere and un-ironic list of actual things I like about the universe in no particular order:

1. coffee
2. CD's
3. my goldfish, "Revenge of..."
4. movies
5. cartoons
6. astronomy and astrophysics
7. quantum mechanics
8. God
9. women
10. XM
11. art
12. Pittsburgh
13. Chicago
14. NYC
15. water
16. roller coasters
17. schadenfreude
18. being purposely obtuse
19. babies(especially my niece) laughing
20. being up before most of the world is awake
21. being awake when the world is asleep
22. comedy
23. riding my bicycle
24. some hot girl-on-girl action
25. the smell of mud and dry leaves in the fall air (the smell of football)

Maybe I misread it, but I didn't see Grant Miller Media listed.

I'm sure it was a typo.

No, I mentioned the bisque.

Don't you like being evil, or at least, a genius?

GETkristiLOVE said...

I like that you're bald.

IS the Evil Genius based in Pittsburgh, or just a fan? (Pgh. isn't all great, though. I ranted about one of its darker sides today.)

Evil Genius said...


Please check your e-mail for my response.


I don't enjoy being evil. If I enjoyed it, that would make me happy. If I were happy, I wouldn't want to be evil. As for being a genius, if you are aware of the axiom about ignorance the opposite is even more true. I am glad you like the bald head. I have found it to be a dvisive look.


I will most assuredly comment on your post. I was born and raised in Pittsburgh. I am aware it is not perfect, but it is home. I am currently in DC. You will note it is not on the list.

lulu said...

I was born in Pittsburgh too. And I live in Chicago, which is also on your list. Interesting.

Blowing Shit Up With Gas said...

DC is the reason I'm in Pittsburgh! Lived there for 5 years, but was never able to afford a home there. Once we had a daughter, we figured it was time to get outta Dodge. I still like to visit DC, though -- especially when the company is picking up the tab for those $300/nite hotels. Anyway, hopefully my comments about the Hope Diamond didn't offend you.

Evil Genius said...


I lived in Chicago before moving to DC. I love Chicago and miss it dearly. I am expecting to hear back from you on my Bethesda offer.


$$$$$! And you can talk smack about the Hope Diamond, just don't speak ill of Chuck Yeager's X-1. Stop by and see me next time you are on an expense account junket.


pezda said...

Amazing! I too was born near Pittsburgh (um, relatively near (ok ~200 mi ENE as the crow flies)). But I did live in DC. Like Patrick, once the kid came we had to go. Couldn't afford the kid and a house.

Winter said...

We are #9? Geezz..

Evil Genius said...


DC = $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$!


Maybe if you all would treat me a little nicer you would move up a few notches.


lulu said...

I looked up ohone numbers in Bethesda for Genius, E. ANd you appear to be unlisted.

Evil Genius said...

OK, OK. I have unhidden my e-mail address on my profile.

Anonymous said...

Pgh is nice, so are some of their wimmin' folk. Mebbe you should've combined the two and saved bandwidth?

kim said...

I like that your bald too.

Why did you put God before Women?

I am all over the football leaves comment.

red said...

EG - new record setting post for comments!

Kim - He did say no particular order. Coffee and six other things rank ahead of God.

Evil Genius said...


Ask Winter. Better yet, ask Red!


Keegan said...

# 18 is one of my favorite things... ask pezda.

Although #24 is definately in my top 20.
