10 reasons I love Facebook

I am a serious Facebook addict! Thinking about that tonight made me remember how I've ignored this blog! So here's a list about why I love Facebook!

1. I can throw chickens at people.
2. I have found some long lost friends and have even hung out with a few of them.
3. I'm nosy so I love to check my news feed. I can catch up on gossip without having to talk to anyone.
4. When I'm bored, I liked to work on my Scramble skills.
5. It's easy to message a lot of people at once and not have to remember their email addresses.
6. I love seeing peoples' photos.
7. Gives me a good reason to wish people a happy birthday.
8. I have two different pet turtles.
9. I can share wacky articles I find by posting it on my wall.
10. I have gotten lots of my friends hooked, too!

This year, the Fighting Reillys will be walking again in the Race for the Cure on Oct. 5 at Great Adventure. We walk in support of my aunt and grandma, who are both survivors.

I hope you'll help support our team! You can make a contribution on our team page here.

I heart blogs

I just saw that Holly gave me this "award" for being one of the blogs she likes to visit. So I thought I'd share some of the blogs (aside from the blogs of my awesome scrapping friends) that I love with you.

1. Entertainment Weekly's Pop Watch. I read this one almost everyday while I eat my dinner at work to get my fill of pop culture news and gossip.
2. Romensko. Amy Kant's probably my one scrapping friend who knows about this one, since she's in the business, too. Jim Romensko's blog has daily updates on the news industry, which I read pretty religiously. Especially lately since the business is in such a sad state.
3. Matt Davies. He's the Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoonist at my job. He's hilarious. And I love reading the story behind his cartoons.
4. Ali Edwards. I'm a big fan of Ali. I love her style and her ideas.
5. Tomato Nation. I found Sars' site back when I was obsessed with Television Without Pity. I love her advice column and her takes on all things pop culture. I wonder if she still has her Girls Bike Club stuff up? Those are hilarious!
6. Melissa Thinks Out Loud. My friend Melissa has become quite a philosopher! You may know her Digi Pick of the Day blog. But her newest blog is more about inspiration and motivation, and she really gets me thinking.
7. Creed's Thoughts and Shrute Space. I love these Office character blogs. They are so funny and are hilarious insights into the minds of Creed and Dwight. Plus, they've been updating all summer, so I've been able to get my office fix!
8. What Goes On. This one is where I get my latest fix of Beatles news.
9. AbstractNixon. This one is by one of my best friends from college. I love all the clips and songs he posts, his rants about politics, and his writing.
10. Grey Matter. I can't wait for a new season of Grey's Anatomy to start! It's been ages since they've updated.

10 reasons I heart my friends

I did this page as part of a circle journal with some of my digi pals! My theme for the CJ is 10 ten lists!

11 Summer Obessions

It's been ages since I've had a Top 10 list! I don't know about you, but this blog is looking freaky to me. I need to work on it some more. Yikes! But I was thinking of some new lists on my way to work the other day, and thought it would be fun to start posting them again.

So here's a list page I did about my obessions this summer - 11 not 10! LOL!
1. Bruce Springsteen. I saw him in concert this summer and can't stop listening to his music, which is my typical summer soundtrack. Badlands is my new favorite Bruce song.
2. Superheroes. Summer's not complete to me without some big blockbuster movies. I love Robert Downey Jr. and Iron Man. I also like Hulk and Hancock, too. And of course, Dark Knight!!!
3. Stoners. I love the Apatow gang. I love their movies. I hate when I read about how they are guy movies because my sis and I see them all and laugh our asses off. Seth Rogen is def. one of my new heroes. He and James Franco were so awesome in Pineapple Express.
4. Olympics and Michael Phelps. I love watching that boy swim. Swimming and gymnastics were pretty exciting this year. But I'll watch any sport, reallly. Love cheering for Team USA, learning about random countries, those dramatic interviews and Bob Costas! Especially his interview with W. That was a hoot.
5. The Dog Whisperer. I could watch this show all day long. Love Cesar Milan. He's taught me so much about being a calm assertive dog owner. LOL!
6. Social networking. I love Plurk! I love Facebook! I got to hang out with my Plurk friends at CHA and my H.S. and college friends who I got back in touch with through FB. I've kinda given up on Twitter and MySpace, but I'm still around there too. There's always some one to talk to, friends to find, games to play, photos to look at. Great for keeping me distracted!
7. My cons. I wear my cons almost everyday. Even to work. I have gone through so many pairs over the years. I'm down to black and yellow now. But I just feel the most like me when I'm in them!
8. CHA. I had so much fun at the CHA show in Chicago. Got to hang out with my pals and make lots of cute crafty things.
9. My dog. This summer has been all about Penny. I never thought I'd have my own dog. But Penny and I are a good pair and I just adore her.
10. Coupling. I saw an episode of this British sitcom at a party this summer and I then watched all fours seasons on Netflix online! It is such a riot. And I totally love Jack Davenport (I even tuned into Swingtown to watch him!).
11. Vampires. While I still love Jacob, I'm an Edward girl. I can't remember the last time I read anything as obsessively as the Twilight series. I started Twilight and read all the way through to Breaking Dawn in less than two weeks. I don't know what it is - the writing can be overly sappy and repetitive, there are some big holes in the stories - but I just love the characters. I miss them. I read all the extras on Stephenie Meyer's web site, including the first chapter of Midnight Sun, and I can't wait for the movie now!

So what have been your favorite things about the summer???? Please share!
