Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens....

Oprah's no longer around so I have taken it upon myself to share my FAVORITE THINGS! 

This idea started because I couldn't stop talking about the book I'd just read... and I wanted to tell everyone about it. Then I started thinking of all the OTHER stuff I love that I should share. Now, a lot of people try to convince me to love the stuff they love- NPR, U2, Twilight, Meat.... this is not the point of my favorite things list. In fact, there is really no point to the list.


Favorite song I forgot I loved: Banditos by the Refreshments.
However, if it happened in the 90s- I probably love it anyway. 

Favorite song that is super sad sounding but really not too sad, all things considered: Librarian by My Morning Jacket
Really, I just love the library and anything library related. Also they use the word "interweb" haha.

Favorite tv show with the most random guest stars ever: American Horror Story
Albie from Big Love? That guy in the Star Trek movie I never saw? This show is scary. Period. And Dylan McDermott is a sexy, sexy man.

Favorite book about Hitler before World War 2: In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Lawson
The last page of this book blew my mind. 

Favorite book with the word "goon" in the title: A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan
This is by far my favorite book of 2011. And not because it involves music in the 90s.

Favorite way to waste time: Bestweekevertv.com
So funny.

Favorite way to instantly cheer up: Reba McEntire's Does He Love You video.
I call dibs on that white outfit because my next Halloween costume will be "Cheated on Reba" circa 1993.

Favorite picture of Estella pretending to be a mummy:

This creeps me out and makes me laugh all at the same time.

And finally..... for my friend B, who every Sunday morning texts me how disappointed he is in me.........  in the words of Sheryl Crow

My Favorite Mistake: Saturdays at 10pm MST on BET
