CP’s Favorite Things:

Every year Oprah comes up with a list of things that she loves, and a lucky random audience gets to partake in the treasures. People scream, women faint with joy, and it’s the highest watched show of the year.

I too have a list of favorite things. Granted I cannot give freebies away to all you loyal readers the way Oprah can, and perhaps you won’t swoon with joy…..but….perhaps if enough of you express interest, next year we will have ‘sponsors’ and give Miss Oprah a run for her money!!!!

The Tobi:
The Tobi is a new feature on the shopping network. It has replaced my prior obsession with the Magic Bullet. The Tobi is a professional garment steamer. After watching over four hours of paid advertising about the Tobi (mainly at four a.m. on Saturday nights, after returning from a club) I am convinced that I need the Tobi. Infact every where I go now, I find things I could steam. Curtains, my sheets, my duvet cover, my clothes, other peoples clothes...................I am surrounded by wrinkled fabric…….

The Tobi is only four easy payments of $34.95 plus S&H…


The IPhone:
So if you google the iphone right now, you are going to get wonderfully technical reviews on the features and applications of this phone. They will go into grave detail about the phone’s productivity and state of the art technology.

I know nothing of all that.

Instead it is lust that draws me to the Iphone. The Lust of the sleek shinny body, which beckons me to trace my finger over its face, in the soft subtle way I touch my ipod. It is the promise of looking incredibly sexy dressed in a fitted suit, the iphone in my ear, giving me the ‘perfect look.’

I Lust the I Phone.




Channel Chance:
Not all women are gold diggers. But as the cute soccer coach I met on Sunday night pointed out, women may be able to buy all sorts of things themselves, its just a really much nicer experience when someone ‘surprises’ you with it. Also like in knocked up, it is a vain measure of your hotness. Chances are (get it, get it?) if you can get a man to buy your perfume, well, your still in the right age category, ….(I know, I know…)



My Body Pillow: Trevor
A couple of weeks ago, I spied a body pillow on sale. I went over to have a look, thinking, “Well that may be nice to have,” a little something to hold unto at night.

Ladies and Gents, since that fateful day, I am now able to admit that I am having a full out affair with my body pillow. He “Trevor” is the softest, most plush pillow ever made. Thank you Laura Ashley, how did I ever get by all these years without him.

You know when you’re tired, and you want to throw your leg over someone, but they aren’t as receiving as you’d like? Well Trevor has no qualms about me keeping my leg on him all night. He’s exactly my size, and is amazing to hug at night.

It’s gotten so bad, that Sunday night, when everyone was out at a very happening bar, dancing and boozing their way to a hangover, I was sitting there regretting not being in my cozy bed with Trevor….

So a small list of my Favorite Things: Any Recommendations from your End??

I recommend that -- out of fairness -- you give Trevor a turn on top.

I am not feeling the iPhone. However, that pillow sounds interesting.

My list:

DEL MONTE Real Fruit Pomegranate and Raspberry/ Pomegranate and Blueberry Bars. So yummy. And 2 bars equals one serving of fruit. My new summer treat.

The Tom Ford "Whitney" sunglasses. I love these sunglasses. Stylish with great lines. Oh and they are only $320. I got a pair...from Old Navy. LOL. I still front like they are real though.

Anya Hindmarch "I am not a Plastic Bag" Tote. I am obsessed with this bag. I am stalking it on ebay, but alas I can not justify the price for a cotton tote.

So far the one gadget to impress me this year is the Nokia N95. phone, MP3, 5 MP camera, satnav, internet.... all in one nifty, goodlooking package.

The iphone went back from 3G to... well, its like giving up broadband for dialup...

Something getting to you CP. First there was a post on wanting a man, then on relationships, now a pillow lover... I have to say, you giving me a healthy dose of curiousity here....

Fiyah said...

Re: Chanel, I must be hot because women take me out. I don't even tell them I'm a seret agent, I just have that vibe. It doesn't hurt that geekiness is in.

Re: Body pillow, I've been wanting one so bad I'm getting it this weekend. I will not, however, name it Trevor.

Re: XXXXXXX, XX I may have a short mission there in the next month or so. Unfortunately I cannot discuss it in an open forum. Rejoice!

Crankyputz said...

Jumbs: Can u imagine what my real life is like.

Fiyah: In CPs home, color and race are no bar...and as it happens my body pillow happens to be Beige,,,

Wouldbe: Annon flirting is somewhat disconcerting, because there is always a chance you may turn out to be a 10 year old boy....

OE: Fathead says the name trevor is gay, my mother calls him Blair....
If you are coming to TO you better Holler....

Jumbie said...

A lot of looking, drooling and longing?????

WouldBe said...

Woman...why are you pulling me out of anonymity?

Boy? I see no boy!

Abeni said...

Trevor looks very inviting

Sushi makes my favorite list..do not wrinkle your nose:)

Crankyputz said...

Wouldbe: You take pretty pictures...

Albeni: To Each his own

Jumbie: Sometimes its in the coveting...that all the fun lies...

There is nothing more endearing than be sought after....or to want.

Jumbie said...

Blast! Then I'm not having fun - no one's chasing after me... sigh!

The OE said...

Inner city blues make me wanna holler...if only I knew where to holler...

Crankyputz said...

oe: & that's why they invented such things as email addresses....

it would be like a covert mission...

spy the spy...

ms. complexity said...

Girl you are a trip...I was cracking up over "Trevor". I just might get one HAHAHAHAHHA

The OE said...

It's especially covert since we don't spy on Canada and, therefore, our database of Canadian email addresses hasn't been updated since before you were born.

SimplEnigma said...

Bwaaaahhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaa at "10 year old boy". Hil-freakin'-arious...

I'm gonna do a favorite things on my blog too. This is a fantastic idea. :)

Hmm, Trevor the Body Pillow, huh?
