In the tradition of “Oprah’s Favorite Things,” and continuing on from the guest blogs I did last week (thanks to Delaney Diamond and Zee Monodee for having me on their blogs), I give you a few of my favorite things. I tried not to repeat the same things that were on the blog:
Cab driver—Greg M.
Team: Cincinnati Red Wolves (fake) Cincinnati Reds (Real, even though they lost Tuesday night’s game)
Player: Jackie Fenelli (fake) Shin Soo Choo (real)
Expressions: “Greg says…”, “Oh my God!”
Book(s): You didn’t think I could pick just one, did you? (and this is the short list) “Rhett Butler’s People,” “Certain Girls”/”The Next Best Thing” by Jennifer Weiner
Movie(s): “Gone with the Wind”, “Singin’ in the Rain”
Beauty Product: Italian Beauty from HSN—I like Bath & Body Works, but it is not the same
Song: “Tasteless” by Jay & the Cincinnatians (fake) “There’s no Business like Show Business” (real)
Holiday song: “The Miracle of Chanukah” by Jay & the Cincinnatians (fake) “White Christmas” (real)
TV cartoon: “The Flintstones”
Comic strip: “Garfield”
Breakfast: Egg biscuit and wild berry smoothie from McDonald’s (and eating it in the cab with my parents and Greg)
