Oprah has her favorite things, and here are a few of mine:

Is it possible for just your lips to have an out-of-body experience? Because mine do every time I put this stuff on. I've used my last tube of Chapstick!

I couldn't get a pic, but I'm loving TAZO organic green tea right now. You can get it in a bottle at Starbucks. Ignore the weird Zen philosophies printed all over the label (although they are kinda funny). This is way better than anything Lipton has put out.

I've been a fan of Wishbone Salad Spritzers since they came out, and "Raspberry Bliss" is my new favorite. Julia even likes it, and she's been vehemently anti-salad dressing for all of her 8.5 years.

Chad is more hooked on this than me, but I thought I'd add it anyway. "Man Vs. Wild" details the adventures of Bear Grylls as he is dropped off in the wilderness and finds his way to civilization. I was on the verge of developing a crush on the guy until I watched him drink his own urine last night. I wonder if his wife kissed him when he got back from THAT trip!

    Patrick and I saw the same episode last night & my budding crush came to an abrupt end!! Yuck! Did you see him gnawing on fresh Zebra meat in the African episode?

    Have you ever seen that Sci Fi movie w/ Sting? He wears a suit that recycles his own urine so he doesn't dehydrate

    I had to change the channel after the urine thing....too gross for prime time.

    I thought that show sounded interesting until my husband told me about the zebra thing. Yuck.

    Yeah, Honey is hooked on that show too. He always DVRs it and watches it after the kids go to bed. I am thinking that this is a stroke of genious since I don't think I want my 7 yr old son trying any of that at home!

    As to that urine bit, you might do well before drinking it straight, to add a bit of TAZO organic green tea ...

    The history of Burt's Bees is very interesting. Basically two Vermont hippies that made organic stuff from bee's wax - and they had no idea the world wanted it.

    I don't really know you, only of you via ACU channels. But, I am going through the exact phase you just mentioned: (not the ice cream cone, but the going to a new church and feeling reborn in my faith!:))
    Thank you for articulating it so well. I knew for a long time that Church of Christ dogma didn't add up to me: it was such a lonely place to be. I began to feel like a total unbeliever. But, now, just as you so eloquently described, I feel new after we found a nondenomenational Christian church. It is a blessing, even if it is painful and raw. Because of my church of christ upbringing, I found God. But, because of that same upbringing, I felt so oppressed by facets of it. It is freeing, but scary, too. Thanks for your funny, funny posts!
