favourite things

Since I left my freelance life for the 9 to 5 grind, I haven't seen a single episode of Oprah, but when it's time for her Favourite Things, I will probably set the DVR ... not because I care what Oprah favours, but to see the reactions of the lucky members of the audience who get to take home a ridiculous amount of loot.

If I could play Oprah for a day, I'd fill an audience full of my family and friends and give them a taste of my faves —

A copy of one of my earliest fave books, Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar.

A bag of super delicious Just Us coffee to sip while reading.

And what kind of giveaway would be complete without some electronic goodies? I'm a Mac girl, as I know many of you are, so I would pass along the iMac that I would like to have, as soon as I decide to part with my beloved MacBook.

And a Nikon D60, which is the perfect camera for someone who isn't terribly versed in photography but likes to pretend wishes that she was.

And if I knew how to clone cats, I would give everyone a pair of the sweetest sleeping babies ever.

And, in the Oprah spirit ... A NEW CAR!

It would have to be a Toyota Corolla, of course. For those of you who don't know, Husband and I drive a 1998 Corolla, who passed her inspection today, which is cause for celebration. And yes, she is a she, and her name is Mabel. Why? Because she is purple. Am I the only one who loved Mabel Murple by Sheree Fitch when I was a kid? Incase you have no idea what I'm talking about, watch this:

What would you put in your favorite things giveaway?
