You’ll get the motivation for this post by the end….
My current top 12 favorite things (sort of) in no particular order (mostly):
#12 – Bruce Springsteen – listened to about five of his (and the E-Street band’s) songs on the way to work this morning. He truly is The Boss.
#11 – Princess Bride – probably referenced this movie fifteen times over the weekend. “It’s only the greatest movie ever made.”
#10 – Superman: Man of Steel – I’ve been watching the second trailer for this movie about once a day. It. Looks. Fantastic!
#09 – Stephen King’s Dark Tower series – I’ve been stuck in the middle of a terrible book for a very long time. I couldn’t talk myself into picking it up to finish it, and I couldn’t talk myself into putting it aside to start something else – “it got published, it must get better eventually…” Yesterday I pulled down “The Gunslinger” and will start reading the series again to give me something I know I love to read and cleanse my mind of that other terrible book.
#08 – Only 20 days left until the 2013 season kicks off for the Los Angeles Galaxy. Can we three-peat?
#07 – Did you know that there are lullaby versions of Green Day and No Doubt songs? My wife and I got them this past weekend at the baby shower. How cool is that?!
#06 – Family – both my family and my wife’s family are amazing.
#05 – Grumpy Cat Memes – I’m pretty sure I don’t need to elaborate.
#04 – Any top 10 list ever made – because it has two fewer entries than this list.
#03 – Any top 5 list ever made – because it has seven fewer entries than this list.
#02 – Jeff Dunham – normally I’d say that ventriloquism is kind of creepy, but the man is a hilarious genius.
#01 – Manchester United are 12 points clear at the top of the Premier League standings, with only 12 games left to play this season.
