Ellen Degeneres Favorite Things

Everybody loves Ellen DeGeneres, but what can’t the talk show star live without?

TThe comedian reveals her favorite things in Elle Decor‘s latest issue, on newsstands Tuesday. The list is an expectedly eclectic mix of meals, knickknacks and Netflix recommendations.

First up, DeGeneres can’t resist a good antique shop in Los Angeles, calling Galerie Half, Obsolete, Blackman Cruz, Lucca Antiques and Hallworth as her go-to stores. And she keeps her home and office smelling sweet with Annick Goutal candles in the Petite Cherie scent.

As for food, she’s a sucker for spicy pasta arrabbiata. “My favorite food,” she tells the magazine. “I order it at Mateo in L.A.”

The Oscars host cruises around in a 1997 Porsche Carrerra 911 (“My favorite car in both design and drive,” she explains), but it’s quite nights at home with wife Portia de Rossi that she truly treasures.

Their activity of choice? Streaming Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black.

“Portia and I are binge-watching,” she says. “It’s keeping us up all night long.”

The super success of first Knights of the Old Republic game initiated a sequel’The Sith Lords, which has all the key aspects of the first RPG plus more re-playable quests and a good storyline. When it comes to capabilities to appear out for, there needs to be the alternative to switch among aircrafts, adjust weather, wind and environment, and decide on the country you wish to fly in. There are plenty of real-time and turn-based strategy games, but few transpire in far-off galaxies and star systems.

You can also look at the yards per throw but that’s partially addressed in the total yardage stat above. Debris at a destroyed administrative building of Muammar Gaddafi in Libya’s capital Tripoli. On larger maps the Shadow is in fact the Core’s best option for mounting an effective early-game offensive.

I have been browsing online for over 4 hours today, but I haven’t found any interesting article like yours. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers write good articles like what you have done, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
