A meme I took from the lovely Kate the Great.
Here's how it works: choose 10 recommendations of things you know would help your friends, if they knew about them. For mine, if they aren't useful, they'll definitely lighten your load somehow.
1- allrecipes.com - Both Kate and Nancy have asked for recipes recently, and this website is my secret. Sure I have a stash of recipes I love from home, or that I've come up with over the years, but when I want to try something new, this is where I go. They even have a section devoted to quick and easy recipes, for when you're feeling lazy but want something tasty.
2 - TiVo - Best. Thing. Ever. I don't watch crap TV anymore. I pretty much get to watch what I want when I want, without commercials. And! I can create wishlists so that any time anything related to Johnny Depp, for example, comes on, my TiVo friend records it automatically.
3 - Washington DC - All the cool kids are doing it. I could use some visitors, and I might even let you sleep on my futon. Great place to visit and even live.
4- Google Reader - While I don't get stats on how many people subscribe to my blog if you do this, it certainly helps me keep track of all the blogs I read. I love Google in general, but this is my newest favorite feature.
5 - Celestial Seasoning Gingerbread Spice herbal tea - SO GOOD. I can still vaguely taste the cup I had this morning. It's the most fragrant and flavorful tea I have ever had.
6 - Pushing Daisies - One of ABC's new fall shows. It's an absolute delight and I've loved every minute of it.
7 - Netflix - I know this isn't anything new, but there are still some people who don't use it. It keeps track of what I want to watch for me, sends me things automatically, and it doesn't matter how long I keep them. My queue is always full. It's a wonderful idea.
8 - Shout - My personal favorite stain remover.
9 - Think Geek - Great geek toys, shirts, etc. Christmas is coming . . .
10 - Flight of the Conchords - HI-larious. More on YouTube, and this is one of my favorites.
In turn, I tag Fran, since she needs to update her blog, and anyone else who wants to accept the challenge.
