I’ve seen it blogged about, tweeted around, and now it’s inescapable as I watch the “CBS Morning News” or whatever this news crap is called on CBS in the morning before Ellen. Every other commercial has been all about Oprah’s Favorite Things. Op’s Favorite thing ever. Oprah!
I’m not an Oprah person. I know she has her acolytes and her haters. I’m neither. I’m apathetic when it comes to Op and her minions. Frankly, I think there’s more important pop cultural type things to hate. For instance, that fucking Toyota commercial with the snotty, entitled, privileged little prick who is picky about the car his parents’ drive, the music they listen to, and their ability to use the GPS properly. Whenever I see this commercial I want to punch every ad person who worked on it right in the face. Listen jerkys, entitled little shits (no matter how cute) aren’t funny.
Woah. I really needed to get that off my chest. But this isn’t about the commercials I hate or my weird compulsion to watch commercials. No, this about Oprah’s Favorite Things. Wait, no, it’s about my favorite things.
Yes, Jodi’s Favorite Things November 2010. If you were sitting in the live studio audience here at Supergenius HQ here’s a few of the things you could expect to get:
- A comfy pair of pajama pants
- Fables Volumes 1 -12
- A toasted multi-grain bagel with Skippy Natural Creamy Peanut butter and a sliced Honey Crisp Apple
- Re-runs of A Different World & Roseanne on the TV
- A set of Corningware Cornflower Casserole dishes (my latest obsession. Clearly I will not rest until everything in my kitchen is 40 years old)
- A Kleen Kanteen
- Swedish Landscape Quilt
Sure there’s no cashmere or trips or electronics, but I can attest to the awesomeness of all of it.
