Favorite Things 2007

Blame Chandelle, she made me do it...

Lisa, Artemis,Emily, Janet, Lessie, G, Chandelle my gosh, did I leave anyone out?

Discovering "The Wire". Hands down the best television on the air right now (new season in two weeks, yay) Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant!!! and here's one of my favorite scenes.

"Mad Men"- Second best television show this year. Those clothes, that furniture and the main character...what a hunk!(yes, I used the word! He really is.) And if you're a feminist, it will either make you grateful or give you reason to grind your teeth and curse at the T.V.

Discovering blogging (maybe that was 06?) not that I have anything important to say but it sure is fun

Getting to know my daughter as a girl becoming a woman. Scary and and wonderful all at the same time

My Young Women. I might not have stayed in the church if it wasn't for my calling with these girls. I'm supposed to teach them. Instead, I see it as an opportunity to let them talk.

Renewing my recommend. 2 years since my last visit to the temple. It's nice to know that I am a member of The Church because I want to be, not because someone expects it of me. On my terms and when the times comes, on His terms.

My neighborhood. living on the west side of the city, I get to be in a ward with alls sorts of folks. Diversity is good for the white man.

My '07 Felt road bike. yeah, I'm still a little squirly on it but I like the "go fastness" of it and can't wait for spring.

Discovering dark chocolate-thank the women of fMh for that.

Julie Rose. It's been fun having a friend to watch and discuss every little detail of "Mad Men" with. Too bad she's moving to Charlotte, NC in a week. (I will miss you tons!)

The Bourne Ultimatum. It could just be Matt Damon but I have loved every one of these movies and last night, I squealed in delight as I watched the final installment.

Falling in love with yarn-- again. (Actually, it's a sickness)
oh hunny bought me a new digi camera and a Sansa e260 this year. I'm finally succumbing to technology. Perhaps I will get dsl in '08? I can dream...


  1. i had to look up sansa it an mp3 player?

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. whoa, NICE!!! and a good price too. i recently got one of those bulky $30 mp3 players and i love it. i occasionally listen to music but i mostly download podcasts from kuer and npr. it's so great; it's made exercising so much better for me. what sort of videos can you watch on that? can you download tv shows and stuff?

  4. ok, that explains why i was confused. the only association i have with sandisk is camera cards. :)

  5. it's so much better than the ipod mini i had for while. easy to use and it's got radio (seems like i use the radio more than anything)

    I don't know how the video works yet, i haven't spent too much time with it. (just got it a couple weeks ago)

  6. i just put a link to the digi camera up. i know you were sad that yours died this year. i am really liking mine.

    maybe you can get a new one?

  7. my camera still works; it's just in terrible condition. and the quality has really degenerated aside from its various physical issues. now i'm coveting really nice, really expensive digital SLRs so i can do all kinds of fancy stuff - i feel like i've learned as much as i can with the basic digital.

  8. My favorite thing: Beautiful Bubble Bath. Drugs. :) legal ones :)

  9. ooohhhh....

    agb, so good to hear from you-it's been ages!!

    i'm not much of a bubble bath girl but i drugs can be fun :0

  10. wow, what a list... you've got a good life. and now you have a new digi cam too!!!
    (and a thingy to play music and videos... is that what that Sansa thingy is? I am so out of the loop.)

    have i told you your YW are lucky to have you? yes? well let me tell you again. keep up the good work.

  11. g,

    i am so out of the loop too. i don't have a cell phone and insist on using a bona fide in the wall corded phone.

    it's a simple life but it's getting harder to live it.

    did you click on the link to the mp3 player? you should get one. i've been using one while I sit and spin on the bike trainer. if I didn't have music, i couldn't sit there for 30+ minutes.

  12. Leaving a comment so I don't get stalked.... :P

    I'm honored to be on your list (even waaaaay down after all the TV shows. heh.). If I had a list, you would definitely be on it. 2007 has been a banner year for meeting some amazing women and forging friendships with them. I heart you (and your fabulous daughter, too)!

    Safe back home in allergen-free Brooklyn. Come visit!

  13. emsumm

    i've revised my list to make sure you guys are at the top.

    really, there was no real order but i guess you guys deserve to go first.

    thanks for your comments. i heart you too (and your hunny)

  14. heheheh! love it that we are now at the top of your list!

  15. heh. you are hilarious! (and I am, apparently, an insomniac)

  16. I'm on the list! Woo Hoo!

    I think I'll make a list too, and you'll be the whole list! How doyou like them apples huh?

  17. i like apples. pink ladies are the best.

    you guys need to tell me what your favorite things are.
