Sometimes I almost resent the fact that, on the surface at least, I fit so snugly into a certain type. It kind of annoys me that I actually do like so many of the things that "girls like me" (twenty something middle-class liberal hipster girlie-feminists who like music) are into.

Here are a random selection of the things that you might expect me to like which I really do like:

1: Campers Shoes
2: John Cusack
3: Orla Kiely bags
4: Marc Jacobs clothes
5: Sleater-Kinney
6: Hello Kitty and other weird Japanese stuff
7: The Powerpuff Girls
8: Lili Taylor
9: Films by Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson
10: Monkeys
11: Bust magazine

See, I love all those things but it annoys me that my tastes surprise no one.

So here are the things I really like which don't fit into my obvious "type"...
1: Matthew Sweet albums
2: Rumpole books
3: Comic-book shops
4: David Lodge novels
5: Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Tucker on Nickelodeon, that's it. Yikes.

God damn it, this is depressing! I can't think of any more slightly unpredictable traits! I really am a stereotype. I must try and develop more arcane intersts. Or at least think of some more of the ones I already have, because my mind is going blank.
