that nasty thing....

Anyone who has spent more than ten minutes around me in the past six months has heard my phrase, "a nasty thing for…"

It can mean many things. Generally I use it to refer to something that I really like, past the point of reason or comprehension.

As in: "I've got this nasty thing for…"Common endings to that sentence are:

  • brunettes (don't ask me why; I've always favored them. maybe I just don't want anything that could be construed as competition to my strawberry blondeness?)
  • geekboys (ever since I encountered one at age fifteen they've made my toes curl)
  • Jonatha Brooke (because she writes killer lyrics)
  • John Cusack (even I can't explain this one…)
