This post about favorite record albums got me wondering why I don't have any favorites. It's not that I don't like anything. I just don't rank things, I guess.
Like, if someone asked me, "Who rocks harder, Kip Winger or Ted Nugent?" I would totally have an answer, but I could not tell you my top ten--or five--Ted Nugent songs. Well, obviously "Cat Scratch Fever" would be up there, but is it really the best?
I also don't have a favorite poet. Sometimes I have a favorite poem in a book, but if somebody was all, "Name your top five favorite poets, damn it!" I would probably have to make something up on the spot, and it would probably change depending on my mood.
Okay, I do know that Yeats would be in there somewhere. And my favorite poem is probably "The Wings" by Denise Levertov. But I don't have lists.
Blogosphere friends, am I normal? Do you keep note of your favorites? Should I set aside an office hour to write down my favorite things? Am I an incomplete human being until then?
