December 13 07

last week we spoke about the things in life that are totally overrated. today i thought we could talk about those things that really are worth the hype. now, i’m sure there will be people who disagree and say…”ipods suck Ali…you can get a zune and it will do the exact same thing” and they might be right…but i love me some ipods (which is probably why i have..erm, 4). Sure there are tons more i could add…like…lululemons because oh. my. god. they are AMAZING.

1. Cheesecake Factory

2. ipod

3. winsor pilates buns and thighs 20-minute dvd

4. 30 Rock

5. Rusk flat iron

6. dick in a box

7. facebook

8. super mario galaxy

9. My new entertainment site, Juice: Entertainment News with Extra Pulp

10. white chocolate reese’s peanut butter cups

11. nonfat, sugar-free gingerbread latte from Starbucks

12. skinny jeans

13. Josh Groban’s Noel album

what about you?? what’s totally worth the hype?

  1. Slim jeans? Not so cute on me. But I’m heavier than you.
    30 Rock is my new favorite show – it’s so much fun.
    I can’t think of anything that I love off the top of my head… um, I’ve really been loving a scarf that a reader sent me this week. There you go: hand knit scarves: worth the hype.

  2. All your talk about skinny jeans is really starting to anger me, because I cannot wear skinny jeans. 🙂

    Worth the hype? Spanx, the iPhone, Tivo, and Splenda.

  3. This is going to show my lame side, but I just got a new Dyson and holy cow is it ever worth the hype! Of course the whole time I use it I hear a little Mr. Dyson voice in my head, accent and all, saying, “It won’t lose suction…evah” but I can live with that. haha

  4. chai tea latte (starbucks) and Project Runway….

  5. You had me at hello until skinny jeans, but if you have the bod to rock it, go for it! I 10x agree with facebook and groban especially!

    Comment by Elizabeth on December 13, 2007
  6. Winsor pilates? REally! I see those infomercials, but have been skeptical, maybe I should buy it!

    But skinny jeans? SKINNY JEANS! I wholeheartedly disagree. Ugh.

    Worth the hype…I agree with Stacy, Splenda.

  8. what the feck is a zune?
    we have recently discovered that heroes is worth the hype. and if i ever fit into skinny jeans again, than my ass will be worth the hype.

  9. I’m confused about your love of the skinny jeans. But, I do agree about the Lulu’s and you made me want to go to Starbucks !

    Comment by Heather on December 13, 2007
  10. After being reminded of the Dick in a Box video, I had to go search and watch it again (and again!).

    Comment by FENICLE on December 13, 2007
  11. I disagree about the holiday drinks … even if they are non-fat and sugar free.
    Totally worth the hype? Crocs!
    (just kidding)

  12. The new Doctor Who is worth the hype.

    I’m happy enough that I can now just barely squeeze back into my size 14s. I gave up on them just after Christmas last year, IIRC, so I’m gonna have to be careful. 😉

    I have two TT13s this week:

    Better decluttering through TT13
    Calistoga, California for RVers

  13. 30 Rock for sure!!! I don’t think it’s gotten ENOUGH hype.

    Being taken on a surprise weekend to Nashville by one’s husband. Hype or not…it was great!

  14. I’d like to second A.J.’s vote for the Dyson… $400 purchase, ever.

    Comment by Momisodes on December 13, 2007
  15. skinny jeans? ACK! jitta and i complain about those all the time, because they are just NOT okay on girls with curves (which we have plenty of). so sad.

    but yeah, dick in a box is so awesome. 🙂

    Comment by Lara on December 13, 2007
  16. Oooh… I love anything Starbucks, but my favorite is the Peppermint Mocha!

    Comment by Maureen on December 13, 2007
  17. Just wore my skinny jeans with boots tucked in today! I love ’em!

    Comment by nap warden on December 14, 2007
  18. I haven’t seen 30 Rock yet. Maybe with the writers strike I should check it out.

    The skinny jean is not me. I have skinny legs and a size 10 foot. Not so cute, unless I want to look like a clown.

    Comment by Ruby on December 14, 2007
  19. I love your juice page.

    The hype?
    long t-shirts or tanks.
    white chocolate mochas
    christmas (totally worth the hype)
    working lots and big paycheques (that’s all I have been doing lately)
    I may do a post on this this weekend.

  20. and vintage (real vintage, made in 1971, not re-made in 2007) winter coats. I wear my Grandma’s and it is so cozy warm.

  21. and Greys’,
    of course.
    Now I am done stalking your blog…
    for today.

  22. If skinny jeans magically made me skinny, I’d agree. Sadly, they are fat jeans for me.

    And I LOVE 30 Rock! I think it actually is under-hyped. I wish more people were watching it. And you know I’m with you on the Cheesecake Factory.

    Comment by andi on December 14, 2007
  23. I think 30 Rock is brilliant! I don’t have any experience at all of the other 12 items.

    Comment by nicholas on December 14, 2007
  24. I am so with you on 30 Rock & gingerbread latte.

    Comment by Damozel on December 14, 2007
  25. I’m with you on the iPod. And I’ll also throw Friday into the mix. Because it’s been a long, hard week.

    Comment by Chris Cactus on December 14, 2007
  26. Ooh – Cheesecake Factory. Now I’m just drooling.

    I think I need an emergency trip to Buffalo now.

    Comment by b*babbler on December 16, 2007
  27. 30 Rock is the god of my idolatry, but you already knew that. I think it’s time for Quotes of the Week, don’t you? 😉

    “Ooh, look at you guys. How was court?” ….”Oh, you were really IN court?”

    “This is a flask.”

    “It was just one game dad…although I did kind of change everything forever.”

  28. ps: Long live skinny jeans!!

    Comment by metalia on December 17, 2007
  29. Did you include “skinny” jeans because you knew they are controversial because they promote an unhealthy image for women, and thus would generate a lot of disgusted comments (like this one)?

    Comment by Saskboy on December 17, 2007
  30. That’s hysterical that skinny jeans and Cheesecake Factory are on the same list! For me, you just can’t have them both.
