So, Tiffanie Lanmon is probably one of my favorite people. We met at a party once, and at that party, we composed a list of DEAL BREAKERS: you know, red flags in the dating world. This is a partial list of what we came up with, and I would LOVE to hear yours.
According to Tiffanie and I - and I believe a few people standing around the kitchen at said party - a deal breaker can constitute any of the following:
-Precious Moments. If you own a porcelain figurine, consider yourself warned.
-Beanie Babies in the back windshield of your car. Actually, Beanie Babies in any form are questionable.
-Wearing sunglasses indoors. NO.
-Word shirts. Handled in the right way, this one can be acceptable sometimes. It becomes a problem though when we start getting into Versace territory.
-Ditto brand names displayed loudly ANYWHERE on your attire, but especially on your butt.
-Scrunchies. Goes without saying.
-Crocs or water shoes of any sort.
-Tribal tattoos - Are you a Celtic warrior? I didn't think so. Let's move on.
-Non-ironic visor wearing. Think K-Fed circa 2005.
-A blinged-out, pimped-up MySpace page.
-Art cars - Very popular here in Austin. I'm going to admit that a lot of these are actually really impressive. We just can't be kissing and having fun if you're super-gluing action figures to your car all the time, now are we?
-TRICKING SOMEBODY INTO GOING TO CHURCH. Which in fact happened to me once.
So, everybody - what are YOUR deal breakers? I'm going to take down the old poll on claymation figures - I'm just taking some time to get over the fact that Rudolph did NOT win - and then throw up one for deal breakers!!
P.S. - Tiffanie is also the drummer for Follow that Bird, who has a show tonight at Beerland!! Jump on it.
