". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

If the Shoe Fits . . .

I have a new addition under "Miscellaneous and Fun Links." Check it out:

Stuff White People Like

It is not only hilarious, but speaking only for myself, sometimes painfully accurate. For example #1 on the list is coffee. Yep, that would be me. A few others that hit close to home were farmers' markets (#5), wine (#24), Netflix (#39), dogs (#53), and grammar (#99).

I guess I'm not completely "white" though, because if I were, I would apparently also be a fan of Barack Obama (#8), yoga (#15), vegetarianism (#32), the Sunday New York Times (#46), soccer (#80), and free healthcare (#94). And I could do without all of those.

Here's the full list. Do you see yourself on it?

The list really is more 'what white liberals like.' So some of us fit us becasue we're white, but most of the list is clearly latte-liberal metrosexual stuff. A fun read, though. And I can see where "crunchy" conservatives like us would score a little higher on the list than the average redneck!

Despite the fact that I am pretty white bread, I could barely relate to the list at all. Of course, I'm neither liberal nor crunchy.

I don't know if you've noted a phrase that comes up fairly regularly in Stuff White People Like, when it refers to "the Wrong Sort of White People". That's us.
