These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things & People

I’m not Oprah, that goes without saying.

I’m not handing out Volkswagens or whatever else she’s been giving away this year. I do freely hand out snark and sarcasm only because it comes naturally. Recently, I’ve been quite lackadaisical when it comes to writing on this site, mainly because my C cups runneth over with the day job and the job that I actually enjoy doing, I’m left with little spare time.  But, You ‘tole Harpo to beat me? Oprah has inspired me to start my own list, that I’ll probably update every week, if I don’t forget.

Kevin Avery

I love a man with freckles. It’s even better when that man is actually funny.  Kevin Avery is a writer and comedian from San Francisco. He’s been a regular opener for Dave Chappelle & David Alan Grier, and hell…he knows Margaret Cho.  See, not everyone in Hollywood has “Tyler I’ll ruin a classic choreopoem just because I can Perry” money.  So what do you do when you want to film your own comedy? You let the people in on the process, which is what Kevin Avery is doing with his Kickstarter campaign for his movie, “Thug Life: The Musical”.  As Kevin states, “Thug Life: The Musical is about a “non-urban” black actor who writes, directs & stars in a disastrous musical production to prove that he can act black.” The movie also features David Alan Grier (Chocolate News, In Living Color), Margaret Cho (Drop Dead Diva), and Rachel True (Half & Half, The Craft).

Oprah sung praises over Netflix the other day, well I’m singing praises over my Roku device that I use with Netflix to instantly stream movies to my television. I purchased my device from Ebay for $35 a few months back and it’s definitely the one electronic device that I’ve gotten plenty of use out of recently. With a Roku device, all you need is a wifi connection to instantly stream the movies.  Thanks to my Roku, I’ve actually gotten rid of my huge Cable tv bill. Verizon Fios & Comcast can kiss my brown ass.  I pay $9.99 for my Netflix service and have access to more movies than On Demand, so I have no need for cable tv any more.

Donna Karan Pure

My nose is picky when it comes to perfume. I like linen, water & very light scents. A few days ago I spent about an hour in Sephora looking for a new perfume and came across Pure. The name pretty much describes it to a “T”.  It’s described as,
“A drop of vanilla in a world that moves faster everyday. To find beauty in living simply, taking time out for the things which are closest to your heart, love, joy, embracing relationships, creating community….”
Well, I’m not sure if I’d use those exact words to describe it, but it’s pretty much one of my new favorite scents.

Angela Nissel

If I could, I’d probably spray Angela with tons of Pure. Smelling like Pure is better than what she smells like after spending a day at The Gentle Barn in California.  Angela is no stranger to my blog, she’s been written about before. Angela’s still raising money for the kids who attend therapy sessions at The Gentle Barn, so by all means, every dollar or two or ten or twenty, will go a long way!

Joe Manganiello

I don’t know Joe, but he’d make a pretty great naked Christmas gift.  That is all.

    I was never truly a fan of J.Lo’s perfumes till now. I’m literally addicted to this fragrance! Its sweet and light and my boyfriend likes it too, BONUS! 🙂 I love this scent so considerably, I just wish it lasted longer. I’m not really confident though if its not lasting…or if I just enjoy the frangrance so considerably I want a refresher. LOL
