Friday Faves - General Favorites

Along with the switchover to the new blog address, Friday Favorites is back. :)
This is one that has been sitting as a draft in Blogger for a good couple of years, so I added a few things to it today, and here it is...

These are a few of my favorite things. There's no real theme here, these are just things I think are fantastic:

  • Earrings
  • My camera (both of them, actually) - Nikon D60 and Sony Cybershot
  • The Giver by Lois Lowry
  • Anthem by Ayn Rand
  • Sour Punch Straws (I'm totally addicted to these)
  • Paperchase notecards, stationery, and notebooks
  • Etsy
  • Post-It notes
  • New Pens
  • Sharpies
  • Caramel Creme
  • Eccolo notebooks
  • Sunshine
  • Sandals
  • Real Italian-style pizza (Margherita... mmmmm...)

Look at you go! I am curious how you combined them. (Don't worry about telling me, don't need to do it, I'll ask you when I come in July or something.)
El Guapo is at Atlas Shrugged right now. It has horrible reviews, but he just had to see it since he loves Ayn Rand's book so much. :)
I need to know what this Caramel Creme is. Sour punch straws... yum!

The Many Colours of Happiness said...

This is cool, I love that you combined then :)

And I LOVE margherita pizza!

I am concerned that the Rand book (novella, whatever) made the list... Hmm... I find her work to be repugnant myself. While some of her ideas are appealing, at least on some level, her cult of the individual leaves much to be desired...

Just my $0.02... ;-)

Bill, I agree with you about Ayn Rand's philosophy--I like how you call it the cult of the individual. I can't support her overall philosophy. I believe in contributing to society and thinking about more than myself when I make decisions. I believe in altruism and striving for the greater good. What I love about Anthem is the main character's joy in the knowledge he discovers (electricity) and his desire to share that knowledge with others in a society that is ignorant of it altogether and fearful of change. I also love the idea of doing what you feel in your gut is right despite what those around you might expect (or require) of you.
