Y is for Yum

Yup you are seeing it first hand, I'm taking the easy way out. I tried to think of something really creative and clever. Bish always has such insightful posts, definitions included, but I'm beginning to think that my brain power is coming to an end. Afterall tomorrow is the last letter of the alphabet... Hmm what will I choose?

Focusing on today though I have decided to chose the word YUM. Life should be fun and today, being as we are so close to the weekend I thought it best to discuss food. Now normally I try and think of something writing related, but today I'm not feeling it, so we're going with the fun and useless brain power approach.

I'm going to create a list of yummy things... so feel free to follow along!

4. Match Me if you can by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
5. Prada and Prejudice by Mandy Hubbard

~Abby~ said...

Mmm yes Johnny and Heath are my favorite celeb guys, along w/ Leonardo DiCapro. ♥
I enjoyed today's post & I can't wait to see what you do with the letter Z! :)

Emily White said...

Just have to add Robert Pattinson to the yum category. And caramel. Anything caramel.

MissV said...

where's the chocolate? Other than that....totally yummy list. And I'm shocked and thrilled to see I've seen (and enjoyed) every movie on your list...except #1. My friend gave me the DVD and I still haven't watched it (the shame)

The Alliterative Allomorph said...

Ditto on YUM for apple pie and Johnny Depp ... and If I got to eat apple pie off Johnny Depp's you know what, then well ... I wouldn't have to speak again ;)

Christina Lee said...

This wasn't the easy way out but the FUN way! I'll add popsicles, Lost and Dexter to your list ;-)

The English Writer said...

Oh Channing Tatum is definately yum! He's currently the object of my desire! K x

Candyland said...

Yum Bert, haha. I'll settle for Johnny Depp...

cynthial11 said...

my favorite was the yummy list of hunks you have listed! lol

JustineDell said...

You know, my hunk list and favorite food list would be almost identical to yours! I think we might be secret twins. ;-)

I don't know the rules of the A-Z challenge, but my vote for tomorrow is for the Zebra!


TheLittleFlower said...

Channing Tatum and Johnny!

Karen Lange said...

I would probably add chocolate and McDonald's fries to the food list:) Have a wonderful day!

Joanne said...

Hm, can coffee be a snack food? With a little bit of chocolate on the side?

Amy Saia said...

It was a real post, I did not see any cheating! It's fun to see what other people like sometimes. But yeah, you forgot Robert Pattinson : ( You probably just forgot because he was sitting there next to you nibbling on your neck . . .

Happy Thursday!

Summer said...

Add Chuck, Supernatural, and Modern Family to the TV shows.

And then add fun size butterfingers to the snack, because ever since we bought a bag, I've been eating them like nobody's business.

Karen Walker said...

I think I may be showing my age here, but Richard Gere would have to be on my yum list. And chocolate. And the movie An Affair to Remember and Splendor in the Grass. Oh, and chocolate.

Creepy Query Girl said...

It's funny. We have just about the same everything!

Aubrie said...

There's a lot of yummy things on that list! How about adding sour patch kids?

Crystal Cook said...

Fun lists!!!

chocolate covered cherries, yum!!

WhisperingWriter said...

Channing Tatum is pretty yum.

I love Cougar Town. Always makes me laugh.

Matthew Rush said...

It's okay to have a lazy blogging day every once in a while, especially if your posts are still as fun as this one!

And yes Bish's posts are awesome. She selects some great words and always provides great background.

Clara said...

That´s so fun!

Snacks: Agree with all your list + Twix and Blueberry Pie!

Hunks: Daniel Craig (but maybe he is Hot not yummy?)

Books: I don´t know any yummy one hum...

Tv Shows: Glee,Glee,Glee!

Movies: Sex and the City all the way

Ann said...

Great list Jen, but I am surprised not to see chocolate and of course the red wine!!! They would take pride of place on my YUM list!

Lindsay (a.k.a Isabella) said...

Great list. Plus, I'd like to add the chocolate too :)

Theresa Milstein said...

Your post is the second "yum" one I've seen, but you did a different take. Are you looking forward to the next Sex in the City movie? I still haven't seen the last one.

Christine Danek said...

Great post! I love your yummy foods and hunks!;)

Carolyn V. said...

Oh my gosh! I love yum!

I'd add all the laundry done, sitting on couch with chocolate bar in hand. The perfect yum. =)

Palindrome said...

MMM, that's a good yum list. I agree with all of them!

Now I want to eat popcorn and watch a couple of Heath and Johnny movies and a couple hours of Criminal Minds.

Bish Denham said...

I do like Criminal Minds but...I like NCIS better. And Johnny Depp, he's the man!

Raquel Byrnes said...

Ha! And I thought I was the only one who thought Dr. Reed was one hot genius!

Elana Johnson said...

I loved Hex Hall. And dude, you forgot The Office on your Yum TV shows... But I'll forgive you because you have Glee.

Cynthia Reese said...

Oh, yes, do include CRIMINAL MINDS on your list of Yums! Mine would also include HOUSE and NCIS ... why, yes, I am in need of an intervention!

~Nicole Ducleroir~ said...

I love the idea of living a yummy life, don't you?

You've done so good with your A-Y posts. Looking forward to tomorrow!

Alexandra Shostak said...

Yum is my favorite word! I use it to describe everything! (Which, as you can imagine, sometimes comes across rather inappropriately... but such is the life of the socially awkward.)

Jen said...

Abby - I hope not to disappoint on Z, though after the yumminess of this post I might!!

Emily - It's like you read my mind!! Caramel and Robert combined, now we're talking! *giggles*

Miss V - I'm not a fan of chocolate, only in very small doses, but you have one for the both of us!!! Sex and the City you must watch this weekend! It's so addicting!

TAA - I was at work when I read this and busted out laughing! I was then turning bright red while everyone asked what was so funny. I chose not to share!

Christina - Yummy for popsicles! I haven't seen the two you speak of but add them to the list nonetheless!

The English Writer - You have excellent taste!

Candyland - I'm so sorry I didn't add Bert!!!

Cynthia - Glad you enjoyed it! They're my favorite too... hehe

Justine - Hehe I bet we are!!! We can just make it official!! I'll think about zebra for sure!!

TheLittleFlower - They're so hot aren't they!!! YUM!

Karen - How could I have forgotten fries!!

Joanne - It so counts!!!

Amy - How did you know *nervously giggling* I was distracted, it happens!

Summer - It's like me and rice krispies! The hubs just bought some and I'm addicted now!

Jaydee - Great minds think alike!

Karen - You can't help loving Richard Gere, he is all kinds of hot!!! Great movie selection as well!!

Creepy Query Girl - It's only because we're absolutely awesome!!!

Aubrie - Yikes!!! That was a good one, I guess because they weren't in my cupboard they were forgotten!

Crystal - My sister would love you! She loves those things!

WhisperingWriter - Yay for Cougar Town! You're the first person I know who likes it too!!

Matthew - I'm sorry I didn't list attractive women as well... how rude of me!!! I'm glad you enjoyed it all the same!

Clara - Your list rocks!!!

Ann - I'm still learning about my wine choices and several of you would have loved to chocolate on the list but I'm not a fan...

Lindsay - Consider it added!!

Theresa - Oh no! I hoped not to copy someone, I'm glad to hear I at least had a different take on it! YES I AM! Kimberly Franklin and I are ecstatic!!! I have it dated in my phone for a reminder, not that I'd need it!

Christine - Glad we agree! Haha

Carolyn - You rock! I should do laundry this evening but I know it won't happen!!

Palindrome - You read my mind!!! Maybe after work I'll do it!!!

Bish - I haven't seen an episode of NCIS but Criminal Minds is the best show ever so for me it would be hard to beat!

Raquel - Don't worry your not alone, my sister, Summer & I all agree!!

Elana - I love the office, I guess it just wasn't on the brainwave when I'd written this!! I'm glad you didn't hold it against me!

Cynthia - I LOVE HOUSE!!!! Dr. House is a genius! Love him!

Nicole - I hope my last post lives up to everyones expectations!

Jen said...

Alexandra - I could only imagine... as soon as you said that I realized how awkward it could be!!! Got to love the awkward moments, they are ones to live by!

MT said...

Crystal already said chocolate covered cherries, so I only need to add cheezy potatoes with garlic to the food list. Another yum - a good book.

Laura Marcella said...

Of course tomorrow you must choose ZEBRA! It's only the most beautiful animal in the world! I'm not just saying that because zebra is my favorite animal, either. I'm almost positive it's a fact. ;)

Loved your lists! Pizza, ice cream and Johnny Depp are most definitely YUMS!

Kelly H-Y said...

I'd add 'Modern Family' to TV shows! :-) Great lists!

Diane J. said...

Love your blog!

Rebecca @ Diary of a Virgin Novelist said...

I am almost embarrassed by how excited I am for SATC 2. Almost. ;)

Jen said...

MT - Excellent choice to add to the list!!! Sounds delicious!

Laura - I'll think about it! Bahaha

Kelly - I need to check this out, even my friend tells me it's great!

Diane - Thanks!!! You're too sweet! When I get home I'll hop over to yours!!

Rebecca - Don't be embarassed! I'M SUPER EXCITED ABOUT IT!!! Can you tell? Just wait until the week it opens, LOL

Anonymous said...

Definitely must add chocolate... and Lost!

Guinevere said...

Speaking of Hex Hall and Prada and Prejudice, I just got them both from the library! I can't wait to get into them. :)

magically ordinary said...

Love that Y is for Yum! Tonight yum will be Indian take out and a big glass of red wine!

How can tomorrow be Z already????

Nora MacFarlane said...

Your hunks list is right on target, and I love Glee!

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Eva said...

Ok so you and I have more in common than I realized. I think if you could just double your list and give me half I would be happy :)

Shelley Sly said...

Ooohh what yummy lists! Nice to see someone else likes Medium too! I watched every episode up until the Halloween one in 2009, so I've missed a bunch of the newer ones, but I loved the first few seasons. :D

Those items are yummy. Thanks for sharing.

The Alliterative Allomorph said...

Ooh! Thanks for plugging my blog fest in your side bar. That's awesome! Sweet sweet gesture :)

India Drummond said...

That's so cute that you put "Dr Reid" on your list. Just proves that smart really is sexy!
