You would kill for this, just a little bit

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.

I'm not positive, but I sure hope it was me that turned you on to Flight of the Conchords! If I were to make a similar blog entry (and maybe I might!), I would also include New Zealand's fourth most popular folk parody duo!

It was! Thanks Smash!!!

When I introduced the roommies to them over the weekend, Jane asked me how I found out about them.

Me: "Smash."

Jane: "That explains so much."

Good job including Thinkgeek on the list. More people should know about it because it's just so cool. Flight of the Conchord s was a good choice too.
