I’m a man, so I often spend my time doing manly things like cutting wood, building super-robots, and punching walruses in the face. But every once in a while, Girl Ninja uses her feminine magic to get me to do some rather unmanly things. Specifically, watch Oprah. Yeah I know, embarrassing.
As miserable as suffering through an hour of Oprah was, I did find one thing intriguing. Apparently she does a show each year called ‘Oprah’s Favorite Things’ where she endorses some of her favorite products. I may not be a middle aged, billionaire, black woman, but I still think it would be fun to share with you some of Ninja’s favorite things…
Gillette has the best marketing strategy ever. On my 18th birthday, they sent me a free Mach 3 razor. Well, 6 years later, I have remained a faithful and loyal Mach 3 fan. I could never imagine shaving my ugly face with anything but this wonderful creation. It truly has changed my life.
I have an unhealthy love for Puma socks. In fact, I just went and counted how many pairs I have…48. That’s right Four-Eight. There are very few things in life that compare to the joy a new pair of these socks bring me. I don’t know what they are made out of (my guess is they are made out of heaven and rainbows) but everytime I put them on, they feel brand new. They may be a little more expensive than generic socks, but trust me, they are well worth the investment.
I know, I know. I’m totally an Apple whore. I was a PC lover for life…that is until I got my first Macbook. Something about Apples products make me feel sexy. I’m pretty sure women can’t help but throw themselves at me when they see me talking on my iPhone. Their products may be overpriced, but worth every penny.
I started blogging on blogger.com. While it was definitely a great format to learn on, I’m a bajillion times happier now that I am using WordPress. The functionality, custimization, and overall experience on WP has been well worth every ounce of frustration I dealt with when I made the switch. If you are using blogger, and want to get serious about your blog, it’s time you drink the kool-aid and join the WP cult. You won’t regret it.
Yeah that’s right. I’m endorsing a live animal. Wait, scratch that. I’m actually endorsing the dead version of chicken…aka food. I seriously have some type of chicken in just about every meal I eat. I just can’t get enough of the stuff. Added bonus… chicken is actually good for you.

I’m a firm believe in the old adage “If it’s yellow let it mellow, if it’s brown flush it down.” I’m doing my part to save the world, one less flush at a time. Yes it may be a little gross, and I probably wont get away with it once I’m married, but for now letting the yellow mellow has done wonders for my water bill. It’s 1.6 gallons of instant savings each time you don’t flush 😉
I have about 10 other things that would qualify as one of “Ninja’s favorite things”, but I think I’ll save them for another day. So men and women of the world, what are some of your favorite things? What products would you die without? I want to know what products you love, so I can figure out if I need ’em too!
