Love the list!

*I too call them "bendy straws". HIGH FIVE!

* I love tearing out magazine pages - and I love reading magazines at Barnes & Noble. I just have to refrain from tearing out pages while reading magazines at the bookstore!

*ooohh..and who doesn't like a crowded movie theater (if you can get seats way from the front row) where you have treats in hand and get to see previews? heavenly.

thanks for sharing :)

I was going to rattle off the numbers of the ones I shared with you, but there were too many...and don't tell my husband, but there is a bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs in our cupboard, half-eaten. Yum!

Em said...

Mart, you have got to try the Reeses Pieces easter eggs. They look just like those Cadbury ones, but they have Recees Pieces in them.. YUM!

I love your blog and I love new notebooks as well. The notebook aisle at Target is so exciting. So fun reading the New York post. I so heart NY.

Cadbury mini-eggs are my favorite Easter candy (well, that and peeps!)

P.S. Love the list!

Missy said...

cadbury mini-eggs are THE best.

I can avoid the little Santa's at Christmas. I can let the Valentine's chocolates stay in the silver dishes. But every year, when these little cadbury mini-eggs come on the shelves...I. CAN. NOT. RESIST. It is a power much larger than myself. They ARE the best! :)

What wonderful inspiration for the Write Club this week (shamefully, I just wrote LAST week's yesterday). My subway ride home tonight will be all about guilty pleasures. I am so with you on #39 and #46 and #58 and #60. But especially #1 (I worry that my future children, whenever they may be, will hate cameras because I will forever be photographing everything!).

Aw, there's nothing guilty about these! What a great list.

I couldn't agree more with your list Marta! Especially those sales racks, vitally important these days!

Christine said...

love this!

You Are My Fave said...

I agree with 98% of this list. I totally watch Entertainment Tonight because there's nothing else on during that time slot. Or that's my excuse anyway.

Abigail said...

Huzzah for chapstick and speciality coffee drinks!

wabisabigirl said...

Wow! It's almost like I WROTE that list! If we met each other in real life I know we'd be good friends:)

Kate said...

My favourites taken from you: collecting blank notebooks, not showering before noon (and stay in pyjamas), ripping pictures out of magazines and going out on the town. Among others.
