I’m not usually into blogging memes and whatnot—but I really love Pip’s Five Faves, so I’m going to continue to play along. I like seeing everyone’s favorites pop up in my blog roll, but I also like to go click on five random links and discover new blogs and THEIR five faves. I’m especially glad I clicked on Kickcan & Conkers list or else I may have never learned of the artist Inaluxe:
Five Favorites from This Week
1. Fresh California strawberries and blackberries on sale at the grocery store. The strawberries can’t compare to the fresh ones I used to get at the Strawberry Stand in Camarillo, but they are better than average.
2. Our best friend Xave moved in! Now I no longer share a house with my brother (which sounds lame & pathetic) but rather with my two roommates (housemates?), hurray!
4. Watching Fantastic Mr. Fox again and again. This is my second favorite Wes Anderson film (after Rushmore, which is one of my top five all-time favorite movies) and one of my favorite films from last year. I didn’t grow up reading Dahl (I blame this on my mom–Hi mom!) so I can’t compare it the book, but I loved every frame of this movie.
5. Getting back on track. I lost my groove for a while but I feel it coming back. I may not have finished Anna Karenina before the end of March (not even halfway through), rid the front yard of weeds in a day or ever post a blog entry every day—but I’m back to where I belong. Life is good.
And you, dear readers? What are your five faves of the week? If you joined the meme be sure to leave a comment. Also, if you are participating in BAFAB Week, tell me what books you are buying! I am always in need of book recommendations.
