5 of my favorite things right this moment

Last week I caught some kind of hellacious stomach bug and spent a good 2 1/2 days miserable, so I wasn't exactly up to blogging. Now that I'm feeling better, I thought I'd share with you 5 things that are currently rockin' my world:

1- The (new & old) Crocker Art Museum
I know, it's pretty lame that I'd never been to the Crocker before, considering the enormous amount of art history knowledge I carry around inside my head.
Jude wonders how I acquired this information, seeing as I am not exactly college educated.  I answer the same as when he asks me how I know anything: If it can be Googled, I have done it. I don't need your fancy degree, I am a graduate of the school of internetting.  For the record, I do not like your Modern art, and I do not like Impressionism.  I am amazed by photo-realism and surrealism, but am a huge Hater when it comes to digital art. "Isn't that design?", I always ask, and Jude just shakes his head at me.

2- Mumford & Sons
They should probably just have a picture of my face on that "Stuff White People Like" site.  My musical tastes  now consist of almost nothing but Neo Folk music.  But I don't know how anybody could not love this.

3- All things Fall
Pumpkins, spooky decorations, falling leaves in brilliant colors.  Taking the kids Trick or Treating, watching all the documentaries about the Salem Witch Trials.  Cooking a giant meal for Thanksgiving, eating too much, wearing long sleeves again. Cooler temperatures and shorter days.  The Harvest moon.  Snuggling by the fireplace with a cup of hot apple cider.  Not dying from the late California Summer that waited till the last minute to hit us with 100+ degrees.
I like it all.

4- Foursquare
Originally I thought this was a site that made it way too convenient for stalkers to kidnap you, but I have been schooled in the ways of Foursquare now and so I have busied myself with checking in to every place I go.  I am currently the Mayor of the laundromat.  I'm not sure I like what that says about me, but I hear that there are a ton of local places that offer deals for Mayorships, etc, like free passes to the zoo for example. I've yet to get any coupons or good deals but a lot of people leave cool tips after they've checked in somewhere that can be really helpful, like what times a business is slowest and which location has better service. I'm gonna keep checking in because I am pretty sure I'm on my way to becoming Supreme Queen of the ghetto laundry and that has to have some kind of perks.  Free fluffing, perhaps?

5- These crazy people

This group is pretty much always on my list of favorites, even though they try their best to drive me to the very edge of sanity.  I still like them better than anyone else.


  1. Oh, I like that music! Gosh. It's different.
    I like it:)

    Hmm. I know this guy who's pretty awesome on the guitar and almost anything he plays.
    I saw him last in April, but dang, I think he played this song! That chorus is really familiar. Yep. I like the words. "it was your heart on the line"....


Tell me what you really think, but please be respectful about it.
