Goodreads!
Same. It's my goal this year to make it through as many books on this list as possible. I've read somewhere around 30 of them already but I'd like to read them all, if I can swing it.

I love The Help (the movie--haven't read the book yet).

I keep thinking I should get on that whole goodreads bandwagon, but haven't quite gotten around to it. Is is worth it?

I like goodreads mostly to keep track of the books that I read. It got to the point where I had forgotten so many books that I had read. I would start reading a book and not remember that I had read it years ago until I was halfway through it. So, yeah, I like it for helping my poor memory.

Eating in the cafeteria alone. It really gives you the time to think about your day, plan, and reflect. Not to mention, you get to savor the food without any distractions.

I also like eating with friends, but mostly only when it's a person or group of people I need to catch up with. Otherwise, please don't disturb me.

I love it when my roommate gets so riled up at sporting events. I find it horribly entertaining.

Haha, I have a friend like that. Last year at the Superbowl he almost put a football through his window and his wife snapped at him. One time he went out and ran around the parking lot at his old place out of frustration when his team lost a game.

That I get one more taste of Charger football with the ProBowl before next season. 4 or 5 of my guys made the team. (Including Rivers...who threw an interception, oh my word. I do not love that.)

I love that the NFC isn't kicking the ACFs ass. It's been pretty close so far.

I'm a few days behind, so I have some make-up to do.

I love saffron. I love crumpets.

I love quiet mornings at my own pace.

I love good friends who will sit in companionable silence with you.

I love Gregorian chant.

And I love apples.

I love spontaneously hanging out with friends I don't get to see very often. Even though it keeps me up too late and away from homework and much needed studying.

We think alike! Add Gala to my list, also.

Honey Crisps are good but not enough delicious to justify DOUBLE the price of other apples. (In my opinion.) They are a bit too sweet for me, actually.

Honey Crisp are our favorite too and they aren't double the price here (because you can pick them right off the trees) but they are a bit more. When I want something cheaper than HC, I'll get Macouns as my second choice.

Honeycrisp are deliciously cheap here. That may have something to do with it being the state fruit.

They're incredibly hard to find, here. And usually more expensive. So it's always a treat when I actually buy them.

I really do enjoy updating Naomi's tumblr. It's a fun challenge finding new poses/situations to photograph and then thinking of fun and witty captions for them. I don't always manage brilliance, but I like to flatter myself I get some good zingers out every now and then.

I really love you updating it, too :D I wish my phone showed me the videos, but I try to watch when I get on a real computer, and my phone does show me the pictures.

"Fat-bottomed girls" is possibly my favorite caption.

I love watching my cats take serious baths. The kinds they do where they are trying to get every single piece of fur perfectly clean. They look so reverent and deeply satisfied with what they're doing. If I put my hand next to them while they are bathing like this, they will usually very kindly take time out of their busy bathing schedule and wash it for me. I find it very sweet.

My cat is OCD about cleaning. Like stop for a 10 second cleaning while chasing a toy, then continue the chase. When she and I were both younger, she would clean my head after I had gotten my hair buzzed. And I kiss on the forehead is always reciprocated with a lick of my nose. I freaking love my cat.
