Each weekend, I post a readable, a watchable, and a listenable of which I'm fond. You can choose what happens next. See volume 1 of this series here and volume 2 here.
I am late to the blog-reading party, but I have become a fan of so many. The one I want to highlight is one of the funniest. Stuff That White People Like is a testament to how similar we may be (but generally not in a cool way.) Plus, it's a list. I love lists. There's even a book that Amazon should send to me as a thank you for all the money I send to them.
Yes, I will claim it. I would marry this movie if that law would pass. I wanted to be a figure skater in 1992 so I could triple lutz my own way to an Olympic medal (although I'd never actually been ice skating.) I also wanted to be Asian like Kristi Yamaguchi. My parents are to blame for both of those dreams not coming true (Chapters 6 and 1 of my upcoming tell-all.)
Speaking of Asian figure skaters...I saw Michelle Kwan (always-a-bridesmaid...) skate to this song at the 2002 Olympics and searched diligently for it. I know it's original to Sting, but Eva Cassidy made it all the more beautiful as she did many songs. Run, don't walk to iTunes and download the following from Eva: Time After Time, Songbird, Ain't No Sunshine, Somewhere Over the Rainbow, True Colors and this song (Fields of Gold). It will be the best $6.50 you've ever spent.
