My Current Interest
I do one of these posts every year. Its kind of cheesy but fun. Fun for me, anyway. Previous post otherwise known as, My Favorite Things and My Current Distractions. These are the things I’m into right now….
Strangely, I am into Harry Connick Jr. It kind of hit me out of the blue. I came across him while watching American Idol and BAM! I was like ‘Wow, where have I been?’ I don’t get star struck often or easily, at least not since I was 16 yrs old, but I damn sure did now. It’s not so much Harry’s looks but his personality. Actually his middle name is Harry. In case you don’t know who he is (but who wouldn’t), he’s a singer, musician and actor. He’s funny, witty, charming, ohhhhhh…. He has sold over 28 million albums worldwide. Harry is ranked among the top 60 best-selling male artists in the United States. Yep, he’s a big deal. I could see me being one of those super fans or a groupie. He’s a year older than me and he’s Roman Catholic. We would have a beautiful wedding, if he wasn’t already married to an ex Victoria Secret model. He’s from New Orleans and his parents were important people down there; lawyers, judges and Supreme Court justices. Oh well, hopefully he’ll get divorced or widowed and I can snatch him up then.
Next, I am loving this shampoo called Wen. My hair dresser has been telling me about it for a while. I have hesitated purchasing it because it is $30. $30 is an awful lot to spend on shampoo when your poor. She kept telling me that I could really benefit from it since my hair is so thick and I have to use so much conditioner. So I finally broke down and bought it. I got the pomegranate flavor or scent. It wouldn’t be flavor if you don’t taste it, right? Well, anyway, it smells good. It takes the place of your shampoo, conditioner, spray in conditioner, detangler or whatever you use. I will say that I don’t like the fact that it doesn’t lather. No lathering at all. ha ha. It has the consistency or texture of conditioner. But it’s not. It really is shampoo. I double checked. I wouldn’t recommend it if you have fine or thin hair. But everyone else should try it. It makes your hair unbelievably soft. Its like I have someone else’s head of hair. My mom would be cracking up if she heard me say that. Wen is not supposed to have any harsh chemicals and all that stuff in it but I really wouldn’t know if it did or not. And to be honest, I really wouldn’t care either. But others do. Something that seems a bit extreme to me is their directions. This is what it says…. “Rinse hair thoroughly. Apply WEN® into your palms and rub together. Use 10-16 pumps for short hair, 16-24 for medium length hair and 24-32 pumps for long hair. If your hair is longer/thicker you may need to increase the amount of pumps.” Seriously? That is a lot of product used!! Craziness! But I do love the stuff and I will order it again.
Now onto Netflix. I really do not need any explanation done here. It speaks for itself. Who has time for a social life when they have a Netflix subscription? If you need a suggestion of something to watch, here is a few.. The Walking Dead, Call the Midwife, Mad Men, The Paradise, Scandal, Blacklist and some others I’m not going to mention. Plus, there is some great movies.
Then there is the Hao Mongolian Grill. Also known as the hahot mongolian grill from their sign out front. Or as me and my coworkers call it the ‘Who Ha’. Regardless of what name it has it is my favorite restaurant. It is located in Savannah not far from my work. My boss introduced it to me and I was surprised at how much I loved it. I generally don’t get into foreign food. Like at all. But geez, this place is off the dang hook. It’s basically oriental food with a do it yourself stir fry thingy. When you go in they give you a little silver bowl that looks like a dog food bowl. Your then directed to a bar of a variety of raw meats and seafood; steak, chicken, ham, turkey, bacon, shrimp, crab, etc..You get the idea. You drop a little butter in it and some garlic and then you are directed to the next bar. This one is all the veggies. With a wax paper dividing it, you pile on the extras of your choice. To top it all off you pick from the massive amount of sauces and spices. It is the same price no matter how much is in your bowl. It then is cooked in front of you by one of their Mongolian looking dudes. I think one of them thinks I am hitting on him since I go there so often. Really, I’m not. I’m so picky I only get sausage, turkey, onions, corn, peas, carrots and teriyaki sauce. Your given a choice of rice or noodles. I get both. It could be a healthy meal but then I drown it in shrimp sauce. It is so damn good! I could eat this everyday.
Last but not least….. My electric blanket. How do people live without one? I don’t understand. And I don’t ever want to find out. This is my 3rd one. I seem to burn through them pretty quick. They only last a couple of years for me. Am I treating them wrong or is that the life expectancy?
Thanks for sitting through my list. Whats your current interest???
