These Are a Few of My Favourite Things...

>So I have been going through a pretty schizoid time, in a pretty schizoid city and it has been trying to say the least. Having twenty bucks two days before payday in Diego is bad. Having 2 quid in you bank account 2 days before payday in London is Dickensian.
But getting an apartment in this city costs close to 10k (US) smackers. And I ain't talking NYC style loft. I am talking about a completely average little 2 bedroom apartment.
And not in Kensington or Holland Park or anything.... Freaking EALING!!!!
And that is why I am skipping meals and living off the candy and chocolates people have around the office. That and PG tips with milk...
So inspired by Francesca at Manolo for the Big Girl and Maria from the Sound of Music I decided to list a few of my favourite things including my 5 "freebies". That means MILFs ( Men I would Like to F.... or like my Celebrity Aunt Lulu would say " slap bellies with") without any guilt whatsoever...
Since they are fantasy guys it does not matter if they are married or gay...
So here are mine:
Daniel Radcliffe


No one gets it....

James Marsters


How can someone possibly NOT get it?

Alan Cumming


He is just mhhhhh intriguing....

Hugh Jackman



Geezus... he's fine...

Ewan McGregor


I feel the force Obi Wan....

See.. that right there cheered me up already...

Nothing to make you feel less poor and hungry than thinking about the things you'd like to eat and you'd like to buy....

So firstly...

Marshmallows and Turkish Delight from Fortnum and Mason
No photos but trust me, YOU have to try them...

A proper Sunday Roast from the King's Arms's Pub in Fulham

A Weeping Jesus from Balan's in Soho...

A huge bottle of Suggo di Orangia Rossa ( blood orange juice)

A bowl of Menudo from Lalo's in Hillcrest in Diego...

A choripan with lots of chimichurri sauce from anywhere...

Thing I would like to buy....

A new coat and scarf and gloves...One that is warm and long... I am freezing in manner of little matchstick girl.

This handbag
Lulu Guinness Tallulah Black

A plane ticket home to Cali....

My #1 "Freebie" is Christian Bale. Yum. But with that last picture I am also feeling the force, as they say.

Also, hello again! :) I'm sorry it's been a couple months since I dropped by... I'm in Tokyo now, going to school, and things have been so busy getting ready for it, and again, since I arrived, that just about everything else fell by the wayside...

But today the Dollar-Yen exchange rate just dropped like a stone, so I too am feeling poor and depressed. This post cheered me up a lot and I read back through some of the other ones I missed (still love Joy Nash).

Let me know if you want any pictures from Harajuku. :)

Hey there Tehk!!!!
Hun, I have missed you BUNCHES!!!!
(((((HUGS)))))
I am SOOOO Jealous you are in Tokyo...
That is so cool....
I bet it's a crazy place to live... even more than London..
I am glad my boy collection cheered you up... I needed something nice to think about because it's been getting pretty Victorian Urchin here and not in a cool goth way...
Christian Bale is WICKED hot... But the rules said you could only pick 5... So I had to pick the very top 5...
I LOVE Joy ... she the COOLEST...
I would LOVE photos from Harajuku and a full report of what's going on fashion and culture wise... (music, trends, art... you know)...
You can be my Tokyo correspondent :-)
Let me know what you think ...
Love,
Milla

Ohh hot DAMN is that really Daniel Radcliffe?! He can Harry my Potter any day...hahaha...so that didn't work, but I tried. And of course you know I wholeheartedly agree on Spike. It's not even the actor, just the character. MMM-MM good.

I have a request dear - I'm totally new to Polyvore and made one for a contest, it's in my latest blog entry, would you mind taking a look at it and telling me what you think? (be gentle! :P) I would love to have your input.

ALSO! About that scarf - what's your favorite colors and what kind of scarf do you have in mind?

I might be able to help you out there if you can wait a week or so. :)

xoxo

That is indeed Harry Potter...
You should see the publicity shots from Equus where he is wearing his b-day suit. He is on the show on Broadway right now I think...
Holy Molly...
The sad part is I have thought he was hot since like that scene in one of the movies where he was in the bathtub with mermaid thing and Moaning Myrtle.
Spike is my ideal man bar none.
I'll come check out your polyvore..
I do some pretty cool ones and it's been a while since I have done one.
You are too sweet about the scarf.. OMG, I would LOVE to wear something you made :-)
I like couture punky stuff, you know.. red, black, rich navy, deep purple.. and skulls are like my signature.
:-)
I am SO excited ...
Love,
Milla

Milla said...

They have rockin' stuff :-)
I saw the cutest earrings too...

Milla

Michelle said...

Ok - I'll let you know when I get it done :) I don't think it'll take too long to work up so you'll probably be hearing from me before the end of the week.

Michelle said...

Hey Milla! Just wanted to let you know I didn't forget about the scarf. Just been REALLY busy lately. I promise you will get it before the end of the month!!

on a james marster note... his guest spot on torchwood was HAWT! what with the making out with the lead fellow (not a devoted watcher, can't think of his name... jack or some such) and then beating each other up. yummmm

3 different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.
