5 Things I Love this Week

by - Wednesday, December 21, 2011

1. Nick Offerman on Parks and Recreation- It is well-established that I love that show, but it is truly ridiculous to me that he wasn't nominated for a SAG award or a Golden Globe for Ron Swanson. One of the funniest characters on the funniest show on tv right now. For realsies.

2. My grandmothers texting- Of course, they are awesome anyway, but this adds a whole new level of coolness. Plus, my Grammy was really hilarious learning.  (My cousin Shawnie taught my Nana).
3. The Virgin Suicides- I watched it again this week while wrapping presents, and it really is a beautiful movie. Yay Sofia Coppola! Bigger yay Jeffrey Eugenides!
4.Christmas music- I could listen to Noel, Noel or Oh Come all Ye Faithful about a million times in a row. This time of year is so happy, even if there isn't any snow!

5. Kraynaks- Kraynaks is a floral store in Sharon Pennsylvania (you know it might actually be on the Hermitage/Ohio side). At Christmas time, it does these really elaborate Christmas displays with semi-accurate representations of every cartoon character possible. The most egregious representation, in my humble opinion, is Joseph father of Jesus, which looks like a Forever 21 manikin with a sweater on her face. Usually, if you go on a weekend, you wait in a really long line to see this, but it really wasn't very busy on Monday and we had a great time. Plus, Petey got to tell Santa he wants a train and we got to eat wings at the Lube. All in all, a wonderful celebration of Jesus's birthday.
