Favorite Things Friday

Yo homies. 

As surprising as this may be, it has been a freaking long week (even though I only worked 3 days). That being said... I am totally in need of my Favorite Things Friday list to make me smile and remember the good stuff in life. 

1. Sitting in bed with Husband and a good book. Hunger Games and Hubby, that's all I need to make me happy right now. [Side Note: KATNISS I STILL HATE YOU!!!]

2. Hunger Games. I know, I know. This has been on my list like... every week. But I finally got the second and third books, and I'm so stoked to read them both! 

3. Settlers of Catan. I need an intervention. Catan world online has become my go-to boredom fix. It's bad, people. Really bad. 

4. Pronunciation mistakes made by German students. I know I'm awful for saying this, but it is hilarious when my students mess up pronunciation. For example, someone was talking about veggie burgers and kept calling them wedgie burgers. A sweat shop has become a sweet shop. PMS doesn't stand for pre-menstrual syndrome - instead it stands for post menstrual satisfaction. A vacuum is not a cleaning tool anymore - oh, no. It's something much better - a whack-you. I imagine that this is some sort of weapon used to hit people once they start to annoy you. Needless to say, things sometimes get interesting, and that makes me happy. 

5. Warm[er] weather. People, it's been in the high 30s all week long. Can I get a Hallelujah and an Amen? Thanks. 

PS: There is still time to enter my giveaway hosted by Amy here

Sometimes I just curl up in bed with my boy and read, I find it a great way to end the day.

I keep meaning to pick up the Hunger Games! Everyone says it is such a good book.

I know how you feel about the games. I'm currently rush reading all the blogs I follow (except yours, naturally :-)) so I can go get lost in Skyrim all day. It's sad.

My G baby rarely ever leaves me along long enough for me to read anything. The best I can do is buy him a new video game and get my quiet time that way. :-)

I entered that giveaway. Mainly because of the free site design. I really want one, but I am poor and can't afford anything. :-p

I have heard so many great things about the Hunger Games! I need to read those!

Sara Louise said...

Hello... I would like a wedgie burger please. My post-menstrual-satisfaction has made me crave one all day!

And woohoo to warmer temperatures!! It's actually above freezing!! I feel like I'm in Hawaii! (that last bit may have been a tad over exaggerated)

Your post cracked me up. I also didn't know you could play Settlers of Catan online! Must investigate. And I must look onto The Hunger Games - I know absolutely nothing but keep seeing stuff about those books everywhere!
