Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, readers! We are definitely thankful for all of you! Here is a guest blog by Emily, a good friend of SOOPERSERIAL. Thanks for writing, Em! P.S. I didn't get the pics with your blog, so I had to find my own.

xoxo,
Lauren


"Giving Thanks"

First – a big thank you to Lauren and Lex for letting me celebrity blog on SOOPERSERIAL. I am a loyal reader and I'm excited to have an entry in the blog hosted by my two favorite bitches. In honor of the Thanksgiving holiday, I have decided to devote my blog entry to things that I am thankful for. There are many things in my life that give me reason to give thanks (family, friends, health and well-being) but I'm choosing to highlight my "top 5 materialistic things to be thankful for" for SOOPERSERIAL readers.

1 . My New 1G iPod Shuffle

I cannot live without my tunes, and my old-ass ipod from 2005 has been on the fritz for some time now. It probably doesn't help that I would run for miles and miles with it shaking in my hands, but you live and learn. So for a cool $50 I was able to purchase a 1G ipod shuffle (pink of course). It holds 250 songs and is perfect for working out because it operates more like a flash drive, in that it doesn't have an external hard drive (geek moment). So I just clip it and go. Right now I am part of a tripod team training for a triathlon next august in Philly. I'll be the one running with my pink shuffle.


2. Elliot Stabler aka Christopher Meloni

Tuesday nights on NBC are sooper-steamy thanks to this major hottie. Elliot Stabler is a bad ass, Catholic, former-military, husband and father, detective in the Manhattan P.D.'s Special Victims Unit (SVU). I can't even remember why I started watching this show. The topics/crimes in the show are often very disturbing and usually mimic a recent event that happened in the news. Maybe it's my rando interest in criminology/forensics – but no matter what – this show is made 1000x better because of Elliot Stabler. He's always beating the shit out of people and getting in trouble for being a BAMF. He has also made a guest appearance on another favorite show of mine, Scrubs, as the puppet doctor (for lack of a real character name). Extra points in my book. He was also on Oz, but I didn't watch that show. One time, my bff sent me a picture message on my phone that was a naked pic of Elliot Stabler. I wish I still had that phone…



3. My 1996 Toyota Tercel DX
There's nothing I hate more than public transportation (not because I'm snobby but because I am usually running about 5 minutes late for all things in life, and I'd never survive on public transportation). ANYWAY – I am the proud owner of a 1996 Toyota Tercel DX. Don't know what the DX stands for, but either way, love it. It gets amazing gas mileage and I pretty much run it into the ground because it is so old. I hit a deer one time and the Tercel killed it – deer didn't stand a chance. I'll prob be getting a new car in the spring, but right now, I am so thankful to have the Tercel when I'm sitting in Philly traffic every day.

4. Boots with the Fur
So I couldn't find a picture of the actual Candie's boots that I have (me either), but these look similar. On one of my visits to my bff's house in Pittsburgh, I couldn't help but notice a warm and fuzzy pair of boots with the fur on her bedroom floor. She informed me that she got them at Kohl's (sweet, my mom works at Kohl's!) and they were sooper-comfortable. However, I try not to get too excited about shoes EVER because I wear a size 11, and it's so hard for me to find shoes. (Note: I am not a freak of nature or a giant, I just have big feet). Imagine my surprise when I head to the local Kohl's and I find an "extra large" chocolate-y pair of boots with the fur – ON SALE. I snatched those things up and they haven't left my feet since. Now my bff and I rock them together at special occasions and we highly recommend them!

5. Tazo Passion Tea

This stuff is a miracle drink. It can be served hot, iced or shaken with lemonade – and no matter what, it's amazing. My bff and I used to get venti Passion Tea with Lemonade from Starbucks and people watch on the steps of our university's union building wearing our sunglasses. Best times ever. Since it's frickin freezing outside, I drink it hot and it's still delish, just missing my bff.

So that's my list. There are tons of things in my life that I am thankful for. I have the best friends in the whole world who would do anything for me, a family who loves me, a job that I enjoy going to every day, a sweet place to live and as far as I know, I'm not dying of any horrible diseases. I hope that everyone takes a few minutes today and in the upcoming holiday season to be thankful for everything – materialistic or not – that they have in their lives. And then wash it all down with a passion tea – or some booze. Thanks for reading, bitches!

I enjoyed this blog because, although it was lengthy it was broken up into a list (I kinda have a secret love of lists, whenever I see a link for a list I kinda have to click on it), and had many pictures. I do not like blog entries that are very wordy with no pictures (like Lex's office rant which I did not read for this reason). My blog entry may have been long and wordy with no pictures but it made up for its lack of pictures in awesomeness and excitement.

First of all, Dave's blog had pictures that I made sure to add.

Secondly, I enjoy this blog because I am materialistic and covet basically all the same stuff as you.

Third - happy thanksgiving, hoes!

Lauren

Congrats, Em - you are the author of our first post featuring full frontal nudity! Maybe we should switch to all porn in order to increase our readership.
