Guess what? It’s Friday! Yippie Skippy! This week Michelle and I decided to each contribute 2.5 Friday favorites to everyone’s favorite Cocky & Rude Friday feature: It’s The Friday Five!
1) American Horror Story. (Michelle) Why are there flies on those apples…? My favorite show of the new season! The storyline keeps moving along with neat little twists. Last night’s was fantastic – too bad I had already read about it on the internet :(. Jessica Lange plays my favorite character. She does a wonderful job playing someone you love to hate and hate to love. Tate and Moira are other characters that tread the line between sympathetic and despicable. Guest spots by Mena Suvari, Zachary Quinto and Eric Stonestreet keep the show fresh. And there’s just the right amount of gruesome to satisfy this horror fan. If you’re not watching, you should be.
2) Hot chocolate. (Michelle) Hurray! It’s hot chocolate season. I like to throw a couple Hershey’s kisses in mine to make it extra chocolatey. And a splash of peppermint schnapps doesn’t hurt either.
3) This. (Michelle)
3.5) This. (Adam) (Even though everyone has already seen it because I shared it on Facebook.) (And even though it’s missing an apostrophe.) It’s so funny!
4) The Hunger Games trilogy. (Adam) Mikey raved about it … so I decided to give it a chance. Ever since I graduated from college (with a bachelor’s degree in English) I’ve strayed away from that whole ‘reading’ thing. I few books here and there, but overall I’m a book burnout. I started reading the first book in Montreal and (according to my Kindle) I’m now 61% of the way through the third. It’s a lot of fun (even though it’s a young adult series) and I can’t wait for the movie! Have you seen the trailer yet? It looks sooooo good!
5) Chinese Food. (Adam) I recently discovered that my local Chinese Restaurant’s recipes for vegetable lo mein and spring rolls are vegan (or so they claim), and now I can’t get enough! Noodles, broccoli, weird looking mushrooms that they probably found growing in the sludge next to the dumpster, assorted other mystery vegetables … omg! Spring rolls stuffed with random nondescript and often colorless vegetables all coated in a crispy deep-fried shell? PLUS they claim that it’s all “healthy” Chinese food! Who cares if they’re lying? Nom nom nom nom nom nom nom!!
Runners Up This Week: staying in bed until 5 minutes before you’re supposed to leave for work (because the bed is warm and the apartment is cold) and then running around like a maniac to get ready, snuggling with Spring until she attacks, getting surprise gifts in the mail from Michelle M., getting calendars in the mail from Polt, Beavis & Butt-Head, and of course: hardcore gay pornography.
