love to love you

Well I was totally going to write a blog today about stuff that I hate. You know... going on and on about Jay Leno, Nirvana, socks with sandals, people who say "you're welcome" before you get a chance to say "thank you"... But then I thought, no. McGriddle Pants, you need to be more positive! So as I started working on it, I took a break and read a couple of other bolgs. Low and behold... Miss Salt did a blog today about her favorite stuff now too! Its like we're connected on some psychic level. It was a sign from heaven! The clouds departed and a ray of light shown down with the chorus of angels signing "Aaaaaahhhhhh!" Meant to be.

Just be warned, when the mood strikes me again, I'll more than likely be finishing up the blog of hatred too. Cause I hate a lot of stuff.

1. Jasmine Tea

I'm so into loose leaf teas right now too. I have a cute little tea diffuser that sits in my tea cup and just LOVE it. And its driving me nuts that I'm having such a hard time finding the stuff! I don't want loose leaf in a bag, just LOOSE! ANywhoodle, I found some at Whole Foods the hippie store. Surprise surprise, found some! In bulk even! Now, don't get me wrong, I absolute love Whole Foods! But come on... its totally a hippie store. Wow, I've gotten really of track. Where was I? Oh yes! Jasmine tea. I first had this jasmine tea when Mr. Man and I went to this cute little Japanese restaurant for VDay. Its so sweet and floral and so yum yum yummy!Give it a try! And if you love tea, I guarantee you won't be disappointed!

2. Designing Women

For serious. I've always loved these sassy gals. I love Julia's rants and pseudo-freak outs about worthy causes and just the over all happy feeling of the show. Cheesey yes, hokey plot lines directed at raising awareness of the occasional social commentary of the day (domestic abuse, homelessness, homosexuality). Honestly they're the reason that I've always wanted to visit Hot-tlanta. (Then of course I met Mr. Peacock, and have someone to visit when I go there! Shout out buddy!) I was so excited to see that NetFlix had the first 4 seasons available, and of course added the other 3 seasons, that aren't even on DVD yet, to my queue. And why they hell is it pronounced "que"? there's two more letters in the word! shouldn't it be Que-ey? Que-ew? Good gravy, I've derailed that train of thought too!

3. Zombies
Again inspired by Salt I'm prompted to tell of my love of zombies. Of all the horror movies in circulation, zombie movies are my be-all end-all favorite. Brains, staggering walks, crazy flesh ripping... you name it! To create a list within a list here's my top fav's
  1. 28 days later (Great, great movie)
  2. Night of the Living  Dead (the 1990 version with Candyman) "They're coming to get you Barbara!"
  3. Dawn of the Dead (the new one with the crazy Kenyan-like sprinting zombies)
  4. Zombieland (LOVE the funny zombie movie! Don't forget the Double Tap!)
  5. Shaun of the Dead (Probably the most realistic way the zombie attack will happen) 
  6. Dead Snow (come can Nazi Zombies not be the best movie ever?!)
  7. Resident Evil (As kicking Mila Jovovich, yeahhh! The sequels however were lackluster)
I guess we can say I love the zombs. So much in fact that my friend made me this lovely card...

How awesome is this?

4. Burt's Bees Coconut Foot Creme

Product Placement! Hahahaa, no I'm not getting paid for this... I wish! I love this stuff! Not only does it smell yummy and remind me of summer (Coconut always does that to me. That and Hawaiian Tropic sunscreens. Can you say Piña Colada?)  but this stuff works great too! Smooths and gets rid of any yucky signs of "winter feet". Just rub it on and put on some socks before bed. Or like me... put it on with socks while watching day-time tv and blogging. Ahhhh unemployment. I will also occasionally put some on my elbows to fight "old lady elbows".

5. Cute Springtime Nail colors!

Sally Hansen's VIP PINK!

What I don't love?

VIP Pink, spilled on the carpet... Booooooo!

(Please don't judge my dirty carpet, I'm currently moving!)

What are you loving right now?

I looooove zombie movies too!

However, I have to call you out on Dead Snow. While the concept of this movie was great, I just couldn't get on board with zombies that not only use guns but are also capable of running in the snow (which would require that they are capable of surviving in the snow).

Everyone knows that this is not possible. It is evident that the makers of this movie never read Max Brooks.

Aside from that blunder, great zombie movie list!

can you believe i'm a child of the 80's and i've NEVER seen 'designing women?' i mean, i knew it was on, but i could never get past the accents and the horrible clothes and makeup. and wasn't arsenio or somebody on it?

i'm obsessed with green tea. and almond tea. i think i tried jasmine tea once and it was so flowery that i almost died.

Jasmine wha????
That shit looks scary.

I can rock with some Zombie flicks though. That's cool shit.

While I've never been a HUGE fan of Designing Women... I fucking love the Golden Girls!!!!!

Don't tell anybody bitch!

I was looking threw a tea catalog the other day and totally thought of you. Yes I did. :)
But do you think for the life me I can think of the name of the damn catalog now? NOooooooOOOoOOOO. So let me see if I can find it at work. K? Ok.Don't let me forget. ha ha.
Zombies...the double tap is the best! I loved that movie! Boyfriend didn't but he's kind of old school so oh well. I'm more a vampire freak myself but a good zombie thrown in once in awhile is good too.
My favorite nail color is called no joke, "Treat me like a Queen". :)
Have a good day McGrid like the new layout.

We were seriously meant to be bffs. That is the most epic list of zombie movies in the world. (DEAD SNOW!!! I thought I was the only person on the planet that had seen it!)

I haven't thought about Designing Women in YEARS and I loved that show! Is it still on?

This blog post made me so happy that my face almost hurts from smiling. I also loved the chorus of angels singing. Because the way you typed it out, I was picturing them screaming in fear. :)

Can't wait to hear about your hates. I'm willing to bet that we have many of the same ones.
