“Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside”;
I don’t like to be out of my depth in water.

I do like smooshing paint around on a big blank canvas;
I don’t like cleaning up afterwards.

I do like staying up late working on my various art projects;
I don’t like going beyond the point of no return and having insomnia.

I do like people who think before they speak;
I don’t like people who confuse honesty with saying anything that comes into their heads.

I do like discretion;
I don’t like exhibitionism.

I do like the Wicklow Hills in Ireland;
I don’t like the wet weather that makes them green….

I do like to travel;
I don’t like the journey, a confusion of airports, crowds, long hours in line.

I do like my feathery little friends outside;
I don’t like that they start to chirp loudly at 4 a.m.

I do like a gougère made with unsalted butter and emmenthal cheese;
I don’t like that I have to watch my inherited cholesterol levels.

I do like logical thinking;
I don’t like rigid thinking.

I do like people who can show their emotions/affection/etc.;
I don't like it when people go overboard either way, and especially when they fake it.

I do like children; I don't like that I never had any.


  1. ...that last line just didn't seem fair.

  2. Oh, Colette thank you for doing this! Your post is so interesting; it's fun getting to know a little more about each other this way. But I agree with Corey, that last bit isn't fair.

  3. I have read a lot of these I do/I don't lists, but yours sets me thinking in all kinds of directions. It is revealing of lovely parts of yourself while also being challenging. Nice to meet you.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate each and every one of you.
