It's Friday, I'm in Love

with my great taste. Seriously, folks, I am good.

Read The Year of Living Biblically, A.J. Jacobs - say what you will, but this looks exceedingly interesting. Plus, I love him.

Reread The Grass Is Singing, Doris Lessing. I first read this book in high school. It spoke to me. Don't know why. Maybe because high school left me feeling like a lonely South African failed farmer? Probably.

TiVo Pushing Daisies - quirky, darling, smart; kind of like me, so of course I like it. Also, both Kristen Chenowith and Lee Pace are from the OK. Runner up: Dirty Sexy Money - because Peter Krause is, well, hot.

Podcast This American Life; How to Talk to Kids - this episode is one of my recent favorites, especially the last act.

Eat Trader Joe's Mexican Corn Tortilla Chowder - I miss it so much. It comes in a lovely jar. Pour one out for me.

Wear cardigans - it's fall! That means cardigans! Yay!

Listen to Our Way To Fall - Yo La Tengo. This is tangling my heartstrings.

Check out the 2007 Centennial Oklahoma Regatta - what else are you going to do?

Cheer for OU as they clobber Missouri, I hope - 5.30 CST. Look for me on the Jumbotron.

Put this on your face - Clinique High Impact Mascara and Smashbox Eyelights (in Beam). I am a make up tard, but these are two essentials for fall. I haven't screwed up yet. I mean, more than usual.

Blog - courtesy of Mr. Shain, of course.

Cringe - Britney's new album. Remember how great "Toxic" was? Also, I'd be a "Slave 4 U."

Drink Fat Tire. Of course, it's not available here. Doesn't mean it's not delicious. Mmm.


Ok, that's all for now.

The menwholook site is fantastic! Fat Tire... not so. Great post!

step right up said...

Good luck to your Sooners. Let's hope that MO doesn't do to OK what they did to the Huskers. That was painful to watch.

Clinton said...

Men Who Look Like Old Lesbians... yeah, I just died. From LAUGHING!!!

Mr. Shain said...

to be fair, i found "menwholooklikeoldlesbians" through brandon'sWorld of B.

Yes, I'll have another said...

A.J. Jacobs is an awesome writer. Anything he writes I have to read. Good pick.

Dan said...

apropos of nothing, my new favorite song:

Day Man. (ooaaaaaaoooooh)
Fighter of the Night Man. (ooaaaoooh)
Champion of the Sun.
Master of karate and friendship.

Dan said...

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia? No?

So@24 said...

Looks like something straight out of Newsweek! I like, I like!


d said...

pushing daisies is AWESOME. but, i still pick heroes as the number one thing on tv to watch. but that's 'cause i'm a geek.

have you listened to 'shepherd's dog'? at all?

9'er. no fat tire? whatev. your taste in beer obviously sucks. (really, i'm just representin' being from fc and all. the beer of choice around these parts is o'dell's IPA. we're frankly sick of new belgium.)

Michael5000 said...

Yeah, well, that's a pretty fine list.

Do you not have a TJ's? Really? The horror....

rose said...

you will not beat mizzou. it will not happen. and i will be watching for you on the 'tron.

JHC said...

Pushing Daisies is somehow dark, cold, and warm, all at the same time.

OU won't have too much trouble with Missouri. You can relax.

Colleen said...

totally off topic, do you have any plans to attend the flaming lips halloween march of the skeletons in OK City?
I think my road-trip partner & I are going.

blythe said...

ooh! i want to go, but as a spectator. i don't think i'd live up to the expectations of dressing up. it should be pretty sweet! you gonna dress up?
