I suppose my Wordless Wednesday post yesterday could count as my "official" Valentine's Day post, but I thought today might be a nice time to mention a few of my favorite things these days. (Disclosure: I have received NO incentives or payments to mention any of these products; I spent my own money on them. This post is not sponsored in any way.)
Music from Les Misérables
E-books on the iPad
I officially retired my Kindle (through Amazon's Trade-in Program) late last year. Between the Kindle, Nook, and iBooks apps on my iPad, I just wasn't using a dedicated e-reader very much. And when I read e-books on the iPad, I discovered I like the reading experience best in iBooks; I'm reading e-books more regularly now than I ever did. (Damn, Apple, you got something else right!)
Yes, I realize I live somewhere that doesn't really have much in the way of "winter," but whether it's a function of the season, age, or both, I seem to be fighting with patchy dry skin a lot this year. This stuff is really helping.
I know it's kind of a thing these days, but considering how many years I was hostile to the "yogurty" taste of yogurt, I'm quite surprised that I like this stuff as much as I do! I'm trying to eat more protein and it's a very good source, but I wouldn't eat it so cheerfully if I didn't actually enjoy how it tastes.
I talked about this a bit this past Sunday ("The Online Trend of Going Offline"), but this weekend I expect to be doing a fair amount of it. We're going to the Gallifrey One Convention to celebrate all things Doctor Who during its 50th-anniversary year.
