These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

I’ve decided that every Friday I’m going to do a sort of “my favorite things” like Oprah but minus the sponsers and studio audience and mashed potatoes. The reason why is I tend to get obsessed with things. Like I can read an article over and over and a song…forget it. I’ll play it until people want to shoot me. So this is an outlet an yes, it’s not Friday, but I’m trying it out. First up is my favorite Onion article ever: It’s Not a Crack House it’s a Crack Home if you don’t laugh at this you are not my friend.

Okay, check out the My Space page of this singer/songwriter, Schuyler Fisk whose voice kills me. She’s also Sissy Spacek’s daughter which may mean nothing but didn’t she sing son’gs in Coal Miner’s daughter? Listen to the song Paperweight which was on the soundtrack to The Last Kiss (a Zach Braff movie and Zach would be on my list of least favorite things but still) and if you don’t love it you suck.

A favorite book of mine Brian Frazer’s book Hyper-Chondriac: One Man’s Quest to Hurry Up and Calm Down. I laughed my ass off on every page. And if you don’t like it, you probaby should have your sense of humor checked.

The website What Would Tyler Durdan Do? http://www.wwtdd.com/ check it out for some snarky laughs.

Okay, I’ve got to save more for next week.

    Excellent! I’m an “Onion” lover from back in the Wisconsin (or is it Iowa?) days. And what perfect timing for your book club suggestion since my husband is begging me to get something made of paper to read.

    I luuuuuuuuurve the Onion. It’s one of those things I thought was a secret of mine (back when it was just paper) and that I was one of the few who’d get its humor.

    I do love that it’s online now.

    And, I am a Zoloft mommy, too! I love my Z.

    Pretty funny but my all-time favorite Onion article is still “Man Loses Cowardly Battle With Cancer.”

    I love The Onion. I want to marry The Onion.

    My personal favorite is “I Hope My Baby Doesn’t Come Out All Fucked Up And Shit.”

    I’m confused. Today is Thursday. You posted on Wednesday. Is there another favorite things tomorrow? Or is the day thing part of the fun?

    I love the song paperweight and had no idea that was Sissy’s daughter.

    Before I even got to your favorite Onion article I had already said to myself- Crack Home! I read it first way back in college and it still makes me laugh to this day. Great blog.

    Okay a new New Year’s Resolution: Read The Onion EVERY DAY not just on occasion. I guess I can be your friend–that was a great article 🙂

    ‘The Onion’= the only thing that kept me from putting staples in my eyes when I worked a desk job. Frustrated? Go read ‘The Onion.’ Bored? Go read ‘The Onion.’

    And I have to say– I am a fan. ‘Sippy Cups’ is one of my favorite books. :>
