The Office is one of very favorite shows. I have a cricut, and I LOVE mine! I hope Santa brings you one. I would definitely love some more sleep myself! These sorts of post are so very fun!

Tiffani said...

Great lists, Mer! I thought I was the only person around me still watching LOST...can't wait til we can talk about it when it comes back on!!

Well, if I were closer I would totally do your shopping for you--I LOVE IT and LOVE getting out in the masses (of course, that's only by myself) so sign me up..I'll FedEx the packages ;)!

Get the roasted red pepper and tomato soup at TJ's. It's great!

I enjoyed your crazy 8 post - maybe because I enjoy learning new things about people.

Your top 4 shows are some of our top faves! Except for GG - Jeremy is out on that- afraid he will have to give back his man card if he is caught watching it. I am working my way through the GG on DVD right now.

I hope there is a post about Trader Joe's in your future. I have always wanted to go there too.

I also LOVE getting Christmas cards in the mail! I am so behind on mine - hoping to finish them next week.
