Favorite Things . . . 2015 Edition

I shared my favorite 2013 things and my favorite 2014 things. Now it is time to share my favorite 2015 things. All of these things are either new (to me) discoveries or things that suddenly became a fixture in my life during 2015.
Bob’s Burgers
I’ve been watching Bob’s Burgers nonstop since I discovered it while on a weekend vacation this spring. Sorry family, I just never get tired of it. I also own socks with the faces of the Belcher family, a themed book of mad libs, a photo of Louise autographed by Kristen Schaal, and a Linda Belcher figurine. I briefly considered getting a Bob’s Burgers tattoo, but the husband pointed out (rightly) that I would eventually fall in love with something else and regret it.
Haruki Murakami
My new favorite author. I started my year off reading 1Q84 and feel in love with Murakami. So far, I’ve also read The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, Kafka on the Shore, and Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and his Years of Pilgrimage (my favorite so far). I’ll be starting 2016 off with the copy of Norwegian Wood I have waiting on my shelf right now. I don’t know what it is about Murakami’s writing, but I feel like I just “get it.” It is hyper-realistic and ethereal at the same time. He often leaves important questions unanswered at the end, but it is still satisfying.
RuPaul’s Drag Race
Another television show. I probably spent a little too much time in front of the box this year. I’ve seen a few random episodes of Drag Race over the years, but it never really caught my attention. This year however, I latched onto it like I was in danger of sashaying away. Yes, gawd! To be honest, watching this show makes me feel happy, strong, and fierce. I don’t know why, but I love it. Will I ever stop watching Drag Race? Not today, Satan!
Phillip’s hue Lights
I love these things and the husband reviewed them early this year. Our house is a technological wonderland. It even impresses neighborhood children. I love that I can control the lights with my phone, pick whatever shade of whatever color I want, and have all of the lights in the room doing something different. Great investment for us – money well spent.
