A Few More Favorite Things

Since I have to post something today and my brain is rebelling against me right now, I'll add some items to my favorite things. I know this is not even close to entertaining or insightful or anything anyone would want to read, but it's all I can muster. Sorry.

Liberté Méditerranée Yogurt - Some crazy guy accosted me when I was buying other yogurt at Whole Foods and told me I had to try this yogurt. Maybe I tried it to appease him (best to avoid pissing off crazy people) and make him go away, but he was right. It may not be low-fat, but it is amazingly delicious. I think the lemon flavor is my favorite. SO good.

Franco Sarto Shoes - Don't bother trying to look them up online because for some reason the ones they list online are mostly ugly. But the ones I have in real life are totally cute AND comfortable... which is difficult for shoes with high heels. Plus I love that they sell them at Famous Footwear so I can usually score a pair, regularly priced at least $80, for around $20 with discounts and coupons.

Half-and-half - In my original favorite things post I talked about coffee, but since I can't really drink coffee without half-and-half, I think it deserves a spot as well. I drink my coffee with only cream, no sugar. Yum. I wish I had some right now.

Facebook - Apparently (according to several articles I've seen lately) Facebook is becoming outdated and for old people, but I really don't care. I hate to talk on the phone, so I love that I can keep up with people and what is going on with them via Facebook. Oh... and I'm old so I guess it's okay.

Homegrown Tomatoes - We planted a tiny garden this year, which included three tomato plants. I love tomatoes anyway, but homegrown tomatoes are about a million times better than the ones you can buy at the store. They are so good and I could eat them every day. Delicious.

Okay. That is enough for now. I'll try for something better tomorrow.


  1. You've inspired me. We should all do a "Favorite Things Friday" blog. Kind of like the "Not Me Monday" blog thing.

  2. I think we are the "old" people on Facebook, Trischa. It's difficult to think of ourselves that way, but I realized after a semester of teaching that I wasn't cool anymore.

    But I do agree with you about Facebook. I don't care that it brands me as an "old-head"; I also hate talking on the phone and think that this is a great way for a socially inept woman to keep in touch with people.

    I also agree on the tomato front, but I don't have enough of a backyard for that. Although sometimes my co-workers will leave free homegrown cherry tomatoes in the lunch room, so I haven't gone completely without.
