I am going to have to agree with Rachel on this one. You should be listening to Regina Spektor. Don't be thrown off by the funny spelling and the name (Bec). Just go out and listen to it.

This is good stuff. Great stuff in fact.

Can you tell its my reading break?
I am posting about albums!

I love Seattle....

Just when we thought the "I love revolution" was over. I can't help myself. I went to Seattle this weekend and I got this. Joanna Beaver and Christy Childers. How can you beat that? It is such an amazing gift to be able to drive two short hours and be in the presence of people you love so much. There is something great about enduring friendship. You don't need to see them every weekend (although you want to) But when you do, its like you never left.

I have been given a wonderful gift with my Capernwray friends. I love that I can drive down to Seattle and its like a whole other world of good times. Took care of a few Northwest Traditions this time around (Dick's Burgers Drive In, Tully's) and I hit up Mars Hill Church. Thats basically a whole other blog post. The emergent church - what do you guys think?

Anyway, another wonderful weekend in Seattle. This weekend I had: friends that bring light to my soul, laughter, coffee and Target. Hard to beat...

Can it be true?

Now that I have shamelessly admitted how much of a Grey's Anatomy fan I am, its time for me to ask this important question:

Were the last scenes of tonight's episode what they seemed to be? Can it be?Was it real?

Now, this is NOT intended to be a give-away post, and I absolutely do not want to be accused of that by the "we are waiting for DVD" types. So - if you watched it, and I know you do, simple answer: "It's true" or "It can't be true". Variations on the theme are acceptable, but absolutely no explanations.

And for the record, I definitly cried again tonight. Its getting ridcolous actually...

I love my friends....

Now you might be thinking "who writes a cliche post titled 'I love my friends'?!?" or you might be thinking "does Sharelle think that the girls in this beloved show are her friends?"

And the answers are me and yes. No not really, but sort of. There is some incredible friendship in that show, and this post is to commemorate a wonderful week I had with my good friend Lavonne. Since the parents took off on yet another vacation, I brought in the good times - Lavonne Neville, S&C, and McCain Cake. This my friends in a winning combo. It's such a gift to have a friend at the end of the day to "recap" with. I absolutely love the weeks when Lavonne stays with me. It's magical. It reminds me why I love good friends so much. We don't need to be with each other all the time. Yet when we do need them, we need them. For the sillyness, the reflection, the laughter, the security and heck even the cyncism.

It might sound cheesy, or perhaps even ridicolous but....I will always be a being orientated towards friends. I live for these moments.

I love London....

I am so in love with this city....

Where do I begin. Its the metropolis meeting the old world. Its Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, Chaucer's grave in Westminster Abbey, the Tube, the Theatre, the books, the history, the people. And the thing is, its not only these things. You can walk around all day taking in the 100's of years of history and literature. Yet in the evening, you can go to a show, or H &M, or Ben and Jerrys. Thats pretty good.

The thing is - I got so comfortable with London. I walked around the tube and the city and I always felt safe. I don't know why. I know it isn't really. But I just love it...so much.

I love Grey's Anatomy...

Look at them....I just love them.

Here's the thing. I don't watch too much t.v...but I am hooked on this show. All it took was a couple of episodes with Lavonne and Kira and I was sucked in. Now I just can't get enough. I download the music (which by the way, you should check out because it is great). There is some wisdom on this show too. Unconventional wisdom, but wisdom nonetheless. This past week, I learned not to be "judgy" with my friends, because it ruins people.

For two weeks in a row, I just saw there crying my eyes out. If you watch the show, you know why. Later I was trying to explain it to Matt and I just about cried again. This is me at my most ridicolous, and it is because of this show. But it's good crying, because the writers know how to draw you in, how to make you feel.

You didn't think I could write that much about a t.v. show, but I just did. That is why I love Grey's Anatomy...

I love Antique Books...

My limited collection.

When I was in England there was this bookstore near Capernwray where you could buy Jane Austen and Charles Dickens 1912 editions for 3 pounds. That translates to about 7 dollars. I only bought 3 books. I feel like there is something incredibly wrong with me. When I go back (I can say that now!), I am going to buy books, and send them home. Its an obsession really. I look at classics in ordinary bookstores now, and they make me sad. Who wants a paperback when you can have this?

I wasn't going to post an "I love" today, but then I read a comment from my dear friend Christy, who has joined the "I love" revolution. So I thought I better not let Wednesday go by without a post. I snuck in right under the clock. The post time says 11.56 pm. Whew, that was close. And I am the biggest geek ever..

I love Superman Kitsch...

Exhibit A: Superman Kitsch

That's my keychain. It's a spotlight. I absolutely love ridicolous things with Superman on them. This is particularly problematic at the minute considering the movie and all. There is Superman everywhere!

I sort of love it and hate it at the same time. Matt called me the other day from Costco telling me I could buy a Big Screen TV and DVD player with Superman on them. The worst part? I just about drove over there.

So there you go - day two of things I love. What random things do you love? Post it. You know you want to...

I love Ben and Jerry's...

My good friend Angela Haugo has decided to have Ten Days of Valentines, sharing the things that she loves. I thought this was a good way to turn this conusmer holiday into something better. So I thought I would spread the joy.

I love Ben and Jerry's Half Baked.

With a love so deep that none can fathom. No but seriously, you must eat this ice cream. It's expensive but oh is it good. It's one of those spoon in cup scenarios, which you just have to do sometimes.

I love it so much that I bought it in Britain, hid it in a staff freezer, and then ate in all in one sitting with Bonnie Dowling. Mmmmm boy....
