Oprah Style: My Favorite Things

1. Asparagus
this is news because for a very long time, I've had a disinterested/hate relationship with this stalk of green goodness. But I felt like asparagus was just something that a girl like me should like. So I bought some with the intention of pushing my palate. Luckily I landed on this recipe thanks to Krisanne. And voila! An asparagus acolyte is born.

2. Diclofenac
Oh that I was Oprah. How excited would you be to hear, "Everyone in the audience is takin' home an NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNSSSSSSSSSSSSSSAIDDDDDDDDDDDDDD!" ??? I thought so.

3. Santogold
So what if I'm behind the curve. I live in a country where the hot lyric of the moment is, "Nobody, nobody but you! (clap clap, clap! clap clap, clap!)" as sung by the wondergirls, (a korean girl group and pedophile's dream). Santogold is blowing my mind. Every song. Seriously.

Did I already mention this?

5. Arthur

Cutest student on the planet. We are studying the opera Aida complete with love triangle and gruesome death by live burial. Arthur, who has a little perm and the sweetest smile, raised his hand during class to announce that he thinks he is like Radames, the Hero of Aida who is loved by two women. His reason? "All girls in Apple class love me, but I don't love." Can we have a moment of silence for the complexity of the Kindergarten social clime?

these wool socks
It's %$$# COLD here! And evidently I have seriously poor circulation. Sad but true that I wear these bad boys EVERY DAY.

ENTP personalities

8. smoked quail eggs
six of these little babies, which taste a little like a bacon-flavored rubber ball, and I've never been happier at breakfast.

Cream of asparagus soup is one of my favorites on a cold winter day.
