"No, Maggie. Not Aztec, Olmec. [slowly] Ol-mec."
President Josiah K. Bartlet
Streets of San Francisco with Michael Douglas
fountain pens
mythical beasts
bicycles as a means of everyday transportation
the idea of car-free cities
Paphiopedilum orchids
California native plants, except poison oak
the fact that I don't seem to be allergic to poison oak
Burma Super Star's tea leaf salad
Arizmendi Bakery's oat scones
John Tenniel's gryphon 
from Alice in Wonderland

I am the imp of the perverse!
