Ira Glass & More Favorites

A few days ago Suzanne had a blog on favorite things - I posted a comment that had a lot of favorites there, which is copied below - but I totally forgot a whole lot of favorites that I couldn't think of in the few minutes it takes to make a comment on someone's blog.

One BIG favorite I forgot is Ira Glass, of This American Life. First of all, I love, love, love, NPR. I listen to it almost all day, almost every day. And my favorite day for NPR listening is Saturday, when we get great shows like "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" and "Car Talk" but my favorite, favorite, favorite NPR show is This American Life. If you don't listen to it already, please go to their website "Thislife.org" and download a free podcast, or listen to it on stream. Most days, while I am working from home, I have it on in the background, listening to one of the archived shows.

Anyway, tonight we went to Scottsdale and saw Ira in person. It was really great. He's awesome. We loved it!

As to other favorites:

I love music from the late 70s and early 80s, it makes me happy. (click on the link on the sidebar so you can hear it and be happy too!)

I love sunsets, and summer and sunshine (but not when it gets too much above 110).

I love eating out, road trips, and staying in nice hotels.

I love music and I love discovering new musicians who are interesting and quirky.

I love art and museums.

I love dogs and kids (most of them, most of the time).

I love laughing - maybe more than anything in the world.

I love quiet.

I love swimming pools and palm trees and a diet coke with lots of ice.

I love sticky rice with mangos and coconut milk.

I love Converse.

I love Project Runway, ANTM, Top Chef, and Flipping Out.

I love John Cusack.

I love a good political debate as long as everybody plays nice.

I love a hot bath.

Lists like this make me smile.

I also love warm baths and diet coke with lots of ice!

I love NPR too. Isn't it just the greatest? Do you watch CBS Sunday morning? If not, I know you would like it.
Okay, what is Converse? The shoe? Obviously I'm a little retarded. I always think of more things I like too after the fact.
