1. Broad City
I thought I loved HBO’s Girls. Then I saw Broad City. It’s everything I loved about Girls but EVEN BETTER.
(Also, I think that the creators of each show had absolutely no intention of having them be even the tiniest bit alike. Like really, they are barely alike whatsoever. But It’s pretty safe to say that if you like Girls, you’ll be crazy obsessed with Broad City).
2. These boots.
I have never in my life had the slightest interest in anything bearing the tiniest resemblance to Western Wear. But these boots. I needs them.
3. McDonald’s Hot Fudge Sundae
Actually I haven’t eaten one in ages, but they’ve been on my mind lately. Why? No clue. But I need to eat one before I lose my marbles.
4. Zero Water
This is about the stupidest sounding thing I’ve ever written, but my husband came home from the store with a Zero Water Pitcher and I went from liking to drink water just fine to I AM SO EXCITED TO DRINK WATER IT TASTES SO GOOD. I have no idea what is with this pitcher that makes the water taste delicious but it does. Also over the last week or so our filter got old and the water started tasting BAD and I demanded that Mr. Beez march to the store and buy me another filter, because I can’t drink the bad filter water and tap water just doesn’t taste good enough anymore. Touche Zero Water, you got me good.
5. When people do not plan events on major Jewish holidays
Ok I swear that I didn’t do this whole list as a buildup to a gripe, but I wanted to post 5 things and I couldn’t think of a 5th. Anyway, today I found out that an event that I loved last year and have spent months looking forward to even getting the most basic registration information for, has been scheduled this year on Yom Kippur.
I understand that we Jews are in the minority in this country, and I don’t expect everything to come to a screeching halt on the High Holidays (well, it would be nice if it would, but sometime around Jr High I came to terms with the fact that due to my religion I would never, ever get a 100% Attendance award in school. It’s OK, I’m over it.) But I feel like in this day in age in modern America, people should exercise the courtesy to not schedule special events on, you know, a major Jewish holiday. It doesn’t make me angry, but it does make me sad. And it’s not like it’s hard to find out when Yom Kippur is, it’s printed on pretty much every calendar, and no one would ever plan a conference that takes place on Easter (unless maybe some kind of Easter conference). So, yeah, it’s on my mind because ever since I went to the event last year, I’ve been nonstop excited to go again, and now I’m really bummed out that I can’t go.
