These are a few of my (current) favorite things...

getting mani-/pedicures
I normally ask for light pink/beige colors on my nails, usually in a french manicure, but I also gravitate towards colors like the ones below every now and then (although Ricky detests them, hehe). A personal favorite is "Lincoln Park After Dark" by OPI. (Don't you just love the names that company gives nail polishes?)
starbucks
O Starbucks, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways... I seriously think they lace their coffee with something. Because ever since they opened one that's on the way to/home from my work, I can't resist it. A personal favorite of mine right now is Espresso Truffle. It is to die for. Like srsly.
the curious case of benjamin button
You've probably seen the preview (if not, just click play below) of the film adaptation coming out on Christmas Day. It stars Brad (drool) Pitt and Cate (love her) Blanchett. I'm really looking forward to it. But if you're planning on seeing it, too, you've got to read the short story first. It's by F. Scott Fitzgerald, the author of The Great Gatsby, one of my all-time favorite books. I just started a Book Club with my high school students and Benjamin Button is our first selection. You can read the short story here (it's really short, should take you only 15-20 min. to read).



nintendo ds lite
I love my Nintendo DS Lite! Blame Ricky for getting me back into video games. Personal favorites on the DS are Harvest Moon, Dragon Quest, and Final Fantasy.
mascara
I normally have skimpy, nonexistent lashes. It is a sad thing. But thankfully, there is mascara. I lurve the newest mascara by Maybelline, it's called "The Colossal Volume Express" and you can't go wrong with a name like that! It comes in a big yellow tube and the results are fabulous. Here's a picture of me with my eyes shut so you can see the end result.

(and i've only had it once... last saturday. rrr... Hannah wants Staarrrbucks!!) i actually wanted to try an Orange Mocha Frappachino. but they didn't have it... too bad.

Chell - thanks for visiting my humble little blog! :D

Nancy Face - Aren't they?

And last but not least, Hannahkin - ARGH! How can you not like coffee? You know, maybe it's a good thing. I don't want you to get hooked like me. It's not pretty. I've yet to try the Double Chocolate Chip Cream Frappe. I'm more into their hot drinks. I will definitely look into it, though, as I am a chocoholic, as you know.

Benjamin Button! :)
I've been DYING (not exagerrating) to see this movie. And NOT due to the incredible eye-candy that is Brad Pitt. Though he helps...

Ah, starbucks. Addicting, is it not? The people at the GL one on campus know me already.

Your posts are seriously entertaining. Just another reason you were/still are one of my favorite teachers. <3
