These are a few of my favorite things...

Big Bang Theory: This show absolutely cracks me up! I love the high brow intellect (even though I sometimes have a delayed reaction...) and Sheldon just makes me laugh every time. I love his blanket statements about life. Here's a quote: "Is it because I'm Jewish? Because I'd kill my rabbi with a pork chop if I could be with your sister!" It is hard to explain, but it is incredibly funny. Give it a try!

Honda: I have a 2002 Honda Civic that Matt is driving these days. It has somewhere around 115k miles on it, and we have never had any issues with it. (Yes, I'm knocking on wood right now!) I have only had to get new tires once, and it still has the original brakes. We are probably needing to replace these in the near future, but I still think that's pretty good! Honestly, the only time it has ever been in the shop is when I have (cough cough) done a little damage to it.... it is a good little car!!

Rent: I know, I know, some of you might be surprised and *gasp* offended by this admission, but I am a proud Renthead. I know all of the words to every song and much of the dialogue. Matt and I often have a Rent singalong on long car trips! (Yes, he loves it almost as much as I do!) Not only do I love the rock-opera feel of this musical, but I really love the political themes throughout the show. If you haven't seen it, please don't assume that the entire musical is about homosexuality and AIDS. It is so much more! It's about poverty and how "the man" can take over and oppress the poor. It's about unconditional love. It's about true friendship. It really is an amazing show. YES, there is a homosexual theme and YES, several characters have AIDS. NO, it isn't for kids and probably not for teenagers. But please don't write it off as another immoral show. If you have an open mind, there is really a lot in there that makes you think!

Ok, now that you're all calling me a heathen.... :)
