Favourite finds of 2010

I’ve been able to find some great new things (online and offline) in 2010 that have kept me interested throughout the year. Here are 5 of my favourites:

1. Favourite new TV show: Modern Family
I think this might have started in 2009 but it wasn’t aired in Australia until 2010. This was actually a hard one to pick just one awesome TV show of 2010. I didn’t think it would happen, Lost finished up and I thought that might be the end of the TV world as I know it. Then there was Modern Family, what a smart and hilarious show! I want to be a Dunphy yo! I hope it just gets better and better.

2. Favourite blogger: Rose
I was really lucky that one day Rose commented on my blog. I love her posts be them corny or heartfelt or informative (even though I don’t understand much of the tutorials… but that is because I’m lazy) they are all great. I can’t wait till my reader pops up telling me there is a new post over at lifeasrose. Her layouts are also super awesome!

3. Favourite new Forum: JoltMB
This is an awesome and incredibly active forum. The members are really nice and they are actually in my age group! Well, mostly, I might be on the older edge of that but it is nice going to a forum where the majority of the members are older than 17 and understand how tough it can be to pay rent and bills.
Jolt also has this great stamp TCG which the admins put a heap of effort into making sure it is always fresh and fun. It is the first time I’ve ever seen something like this at a forum.
Oh and the neat thing? They’re having a double coins day on the 29th Dec! So hurry up and join! ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh, and tell them Kalliste sent you.

4. Favourite new drink: Watermelon Gatorade
I know you might not think this is important but let me correct you, IT IS! This might be the most awesomest drink ever. It actually tastes like watermelon rather than watermelon flavouring! My local shops is the only place I can find it and it sometimes goes for $4 for 600ml so I wait for them to put it on special ($2) and then buy like 10 bottles!! And drink them all in a week. It is all sorts of delicious.

5. Favourite author: Jane Austen
So I know she isn’t new to 2010 but she is new to me for 2010. I’ve never been one to read the classics but after watching Lost in Austen I decided to give it a shot. I just had to know what the big deal was about Darcy. Once I got past all of them language barriers it has been a lovely read. I’m hoping to build up my collection.

So there you have it, the standard and weird. You better go try that Gatorade and now! ๐Ÿ™‚ But first, let me know what new finds you have enjoyed in 2010.

  1. Recently there was a sale at Woolies for Gatorade, I think, and my dad bought a whole box. l said to him, “Dad…” My brother keeps the Gatorade bottles to reuse, which is all very eco-friendly of him, but now they’re all over the house!

    Quite a few new bloggers have commented on my posts, including Rose, and I really appreciate that. I love reading new blogs so it’s a good thing for those bloggers too when they comment, they’ll most likely receive a comment back, and a regular reader. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Watermelon Gatorade? I haven’t heard of that, and I live in the US. I must be completely out of the loop right now.

    Modern Family won a huge amount of Emmies this year and had a ridiculous amount of nominations. Which means that it’s probably really really good.

    I found Rose’s blog a few months ago and decided that I really loved it. It was awesome when she had the time to blog five days a week back in the summer. ๐Ÿ˜›

  3. Watermelon Gatorade? Really? That sounds tasty! I don’t think there’s such a thing here in the US. ๐Ÿ™

    And I agree with you on Modern Family. It’s incredibly funny. Many of the shows that were funny then aren’t just as funny anymore.
