Yesterday, as I was juggling chainsaws and chewing glass, Girl Ninja asked that I do something rather unmanly with her…watch Oprah. Luckily, I was able to pencil time in for her (between Fire Breathing and Bear Wrestling of course). If you saw yesterday’s episode, you’d know it was Oprah’s favorite things, a show where she endorses and gives away a ton of her favorite products to her audience members.
Yesterday she gave away only two things I’d be interested in; an iPad and a Volkswagen Beetle (not because I would actually drive a beetle, but because I could use the parts to build a super robot). While I may not be able to give away all of my favorite things, it doesn’t mean I can’t share them with you. Without further ado, Ninja’s favorite things of 2010….
Totally had to throw this one in there otherwise I would have one pissed off wife. Haha. Being married is pretty much the greatest thing ever. Well second greatest thing. My iPhone is the first…just kidding…kind of.
I really, really, really wish ING paid me to advertise for them. I love my online savings account and even though they don’t sponsor me, I still have no problems spreading the love. They offer a decently competitive interest rate, they have hilarious tweets/marketing campaigns, it’s super easy to set up, and I don’t feel like I’m supporting an evil big bank like Bank of America. Love you ING, but seriously, you should consider paying me to endorse you 🙂
Crushed Red Pepper:
I recently discovered my crush (pun intended) on crushed red peppers. I for some reason had convinced myself I didn’t like them, and have always been weirded out by people that put them on their pizza. That is, until Girl Ninja made an incredible pasta dish the other night and sneakily added some of the crushed red pepper in it. It was like a party in my mouth. I can’t get enough of the stuff. It was a life changing revelation.
There I said it. I’m in love with my blog. It’s morphed from a small side hobby to a big time obsession. I’m definitely not a UBER successful PF blogger, but I’m amazed by the solid growth I’ve seen over the last year. This of course couldn’t have been done without you all! While I may not have the largest readership, I definitely have the coolest. Shout out to each of you that take the time to drop me a line almost every day. Who knows if I can continue to keep your attention for another 12 months, but I’m sure as heck up for the challenge.
Dove Cucumber and Green Tea Body Soap:
Yes, I will turn my man-card in right now and admit I love cucumber and green tea body soap. The “manly” body washes (old spice, axe, etc) just don’t do it for me. I have a sensitive side, and that sensitive side likes to be lathered in the most amazingly refreshing body soap of all time. Any other men out there care to admit what typically “feminine” products they love?
Being able to give stuff away:
Ahh, you’ve made it to the end of the article, and for that you should be rewarded. With what you ask? How about a chance to win 500 smackeroos? All ya have to do is participate in a little festive Turkey day Haiku contest I’m judging over at LifeTuner.org (link to contest here). You have until Dec. 1st to get your Haiku submitted for your shot at $500. I’ll give anyone that is interested in participating a hint…I’m looking to laugh 🙂 If you need a little Haiku inspiration here’s one I wrote a while back…

There ya have it, some of my favorite things of 2010. I seriously don’t know what life would be like without them…oh wait, yes I do…depressing!
What are some of your favorite things? What couldn’t you live without? Am I the only man that watched Oprah yesterday?
