These are a few of my favourite things

Every year, my very lovely friend Beck writes a satirical review of all the items on Oprah’s Favourite Things For The Holidays.  It’s one of MY favourite things, reading her review.  This year, she did not stop there, no, not Beck.  She instead created her very own dream team of bloggers to write about their own favourite things – a Christmas Gift List.  Guess who is on that team?  ME.  So go on over to Beck’s blog and check out what I want for Christmas (and no, I did not say “world peace” or “an end to hunger”.  Those are implied.)

A little note about the beautiful Beck: she is one of the reasons I started this blog.  Way, way back in the day, I was inspired by her very funny, very beautiful, very thought-provoking writing.  I started my blog, very shyly and quietly, and she was the very first person ever to comment on it.  Her support spurred me on, and here we are today.  409 posts and counting.  Beck and I are now friends, even if we are long-distance ones, and one of these days we are going to get drunk on wine together, wear black sweaters, and blog all about it.  xoxo Beck.

Enough mushiness!  Go over to Beck’s and read the gift posts – there are many talented writers over there and I am honoured to be one of them.


  1. Here is the kind of day I had – THIS MADE ME CRY LIKE AN EFFING SISSY. Good grief!
    This was very nice to read, Nicole. I’m so glad that you’re here and writing and that we’re friends now!

  2. I will check it out!

  3. Love the list! But I REALLY love how you typed “favourite” and “pyjamas.” It’s so cool to have international friends 🙂

  4. I love Beck, too. She is the best.

    And I need to catch up on her non-Oprah posts!
