I’ve had “A Few of My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music stuck in my head for about an hour, so I thought, “Hmm, why not do a top 5 thingy of my current favorite things on my blog.” So very High Fidelity (and unoriginal) if I do say so myself.
I LOVE pullovers. I’m surprised I haven’t done a post completely dedicated to my growing collection yet. They’re just so nice and comfy and you can dress them up, or down. I particularly like the graphic ones, especially if there’s a Disney character on it! Jen bought this super adorable Winnie the Pooh one for me (because she’s just rad like that) the other day. Forever 21 has a plethora of cute pullovers, I can’t stand it!
2. Jammie Dodgers
I didn’t even know what the hell a Jammie Dodger was until the 11th Doctor tried to fight the Daleks off with one in Doctor Who last year. And I found them at World Market a few weeks ago. At first I thought it tasted bland, but the more I ate, the more I liked it. I like eating them with tea. It makes me feel British.
3. Dead Man’s Bones/Ryan Gosling
I’ve been listening to a lot of Dead Man’s Bones lately (Ryan Gosling’s band with Zach Shields). They only have one album out that was released a couple years ago. Dead Man’s Bones I guess could be called “indie macabre” as their sound and songs subject matter are quite eerie. My mom heard some of it and said, “You like weird music” and “This sounds emo.” *shoulder shrug*
Tim and I are currently crushing really hard on Ryan Gosling aka “Baby Goose.” I mean, who isn’t? We’re competing over who will have his accidental babies first (even though he has no idea we exist, and Tim is a straight guy and can’t procreate with another man because it’s physically impossible). I never thought I’d ever fight over a man with my best guy friend. x__x
4. Once Upon a Time
When I first saw a preview for Once Upon a Time (while watching the last Harry Potter movie) I thought, “OH MY GOD, THEY’RE RIPPING OFF FABLES!” In case you’re not familiar, Fables is a really awesome graphic novel series about fairytale characters thriving in the real world in their own community after being forced out of their Homelands by a power called The Adversary. Anywho, I looked into Once Upon a Time a bit more, and saw that it wasn’t exactly the same and actually seemed interesting. Now I anticipate every Sunday to come see what’s going to happen! And Jamie Dorman as the Sheriff… *droolz*
5. Mindy Kaling
I have a girlcrush on Mindy Kaling. I don’t watch The Office religiously, and I haven’t read her book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) yet (I’m dying to get it though!), but I follow her on Twitter and read her blog, and I just feel like her and I need to be BFFs immediately. I mean, she and I love jeggings. We don’t know what real pants feel like anymore. Is that weird? Yeah, that’s probably weird. I mean, the thing about me wanting to be her BFF even though I don’t watch the show she stars and writes for all the time. Not the the thing about the jeggings. Those things rule, they’re not weird. She’d probably think I’m weird though. Damn.
PS: I am so overwhelmed with the response I got from my Rapunzel giveaway! I’m glad you’re all interested and thanks so much for participating and following my ‘lil ‘ol blog.
