So, this blog is currently very dull. There is a distinct lack of explosions, dragons, and space battles happening on this page, so I’m going to do my very bestest to make things more exciting around here from now on, even if that means posting random pictures of dinosaurs, Star Trek captains, and/or robots. And I can’t promise that I’ll shy away from gushing over various things I love, because, you know what? This is MY blog, and I’m tired of trying to find clever things to say when I simply don’t know what to say. So, instead, I plan to add a little more “me” and a little less “abandoned blog because I didn’t know what to post.”
Without further ado, here is the first post in my new (weekly? monthly? whenever I feel like it?) series about my the things I love. Why? Because I can.
And because it makes the world a little bit brighter when you think about your favorite things (seriously, Maria von Trapp did NOT lie!) and share them with others. Go ahead and SQUEE with me… and why not leave a few of your favorite things in the comments?
Favorite Thing #1: Leverage (TV series)
This is, without a doubt, THE BEST THING ON TELEVISION right now. I blew through all four series in a remarkable amount of time, and I’m going to be very, very sad waiting for the next season because I feel personally invested in the lives of these people and their zany capers. I love them. Truly. Parker most of all.
Favorite Thing #2: Skylanders (video game)
I think I played about 15 hours of this game after cracking it open for the first time. Then I went hunting around my city and a neighboring city, looking for MORE SKYLANDERS. Everywhere in the universe was sold out (until this week… needless to say, I’m going to Microplay later tonight), and every display I checked had sad people standing at it, wishing there were more Skylanders to buy and play with in the game. And when I say “people”, I mean “myself and several 8-year-old boys”. I am not ashamed.
Favorite Thing #3: Star Wars (WAY OF LIFE)
We’re talking films, books, games… need I say more?
Favorite Thing #4: Dragons (“mythological” creatures… *pfft*)
Yes. These. Fire, flying, and pointy bits. LOVE.
Favorite Thing #5: Cheesecake (food)
Because WHO DOESN’T LOVE CHEESECAKE?!?! I prefer baked cheesecake, and if you’re offering me a version containing chocolate, pumpkin and/or raspberry, you will be my friend for life. If you also provide a decent cup of coffee at the same time, you will be my friend for INFINITY.
…and those are a few of my favorite things.
