    Those green shoes are awesome! As is the peanut butter mochi… that’s what I WISH I had on-hand to like today. 🙂

    What I do like is the fact that tomorrow is Friday!!!

    I had a job in a math office where I did my undergrad [insert clever maths joke I can’t think of here…. something like “proofs?? i’ll show YOU proofs!” a ha. ha. ha. nope]. It was next to the physics building, which was built like a labyrinth of downward zig-zagging halls. There were signs on doors not to enter, because crazy lasers would immediately pulsify you to death with their laseriness. I do believe beneath these rooms were even more secret rooms in a top-secret further down secret room floor. Students could get away with living in some of these secret rooms, but I bet they suffered strange ailments from pulsy lasers.

    I also heard tell of rooms in another building where they tested crack on monkeys. As I heard this from somewhere who interviewed for a job there, I’m a bit inclined to believe him.

    To top it off most buildings were connected with underground tunnel walkways. When walking through them, I would sing and create the most haunting reverberations. I miss Minnesota:(

    I ADORE dresses that have pockets as well. And I love your green heels 🙂

    AND that picture of you and your brother is just the CUTEST!

  4. kelli

    that dress is perfect on you! love it. today i like kitchen adventuring.=)

  5. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    So much mochi! Almost enough mochi to make it through an entire day! The black pocketed dress looks fantastic on you, BTW.

  6. Karen

    I like your blog! And the cool dress you’re wearing in the first picture, and Nutella fudge (oh yes!). And today, I love that it’s summer and sweet 30C here in Vienna. 🙂

  7. Camille

    First, a question for you. What is Milo?

    But on to what I like today. Today, I like being on vacation, having three delicious dinner reservations for the weekend, seeing old friends, writing dessert menus and having too many ideas to condense it into something cohesive. Most of all, I like having my job decision made! 🙂

  8. Lisa (bakebikeblog)

    LOVE LOVE LOVE that black dress!

  9. Julia @ Boredom Abounds

    I really, really like the idea of Nutella fudge, yum!

    Mostly I just really like that today is Friday. Hooray!

  10. Queenotisblue

    Your green heels are fantastic!

    I like my niece. It’s hard not to like, no love, a seven year old who gives you her chocolate Easter bunny to help you recover from a migraine, like she did last weekend!

  11. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    Love your dress, you look super elegant and audrey-esque! Right now I’m loving this post of random tidbits. I’m disliking how rude tidbits sounds. I’m also liking rooibos tea.
    Heidi xo

    Hannah that dress is stunning on you!
    Also I am sorry to tell you that I have in fact been in the underground rooms at bundah and instead of leaving feeling proud to be in on some secret, I just felt very dusty and covered in cobwebs. On the plus side you haven’t missed much…

    The thing I am liking at the moment is the discovery that I can productively work on my thesis from the comfort of my bed rather than trecking the km from the car to the honours room at uni in the cold 🙂
    But the thing I love is the thought that we will have a coffee date soon!!!!!!!

  13. JohannaGGG

    I like your dress – audrey hepburn style is very cool (and needs straight hair!). I like that it is lunchtime. I like that sylvia eats a boiled egg every morning – so easy and nutritious – why can’t I like eggs too! And now I want nutella fudge!!!!

  14. Lauren

    A post chock full of wondrous things. First, that dress is great — it is both Audrey Hepburn and street style appropriate. I was eyeing nearly identical dresses at J.Crew and Madewell.

    Second, picture of you and your brother is so cute! I wish my siblings and I got along so well. Perhaps if I played more football and World of Warcraft.

    And finally — the mochi. Mmm. Do you prefer the ice cream or room temperature (I can’t think of a better description!) version?

    I like…

    *Reading blog posts from Wayfaring Chocolate. I don’t always reply, but I always read.

    *Upon hearing that someone is a very good Scrabble player, turning to Andrew and asking, “Yes, but is he as good as Scrabble Hannah?” (Sorry, SH is our shorthand for avoiding confusion between Hannahs…)

    *Realising that the Nutella fudge you Fb-ed about recently already exists in recipe form in the blogosphere! Today I’m making the first Middle-East bound baked goods, and this is it. Not sure how the chocolate content will travel, but gooey Nutella fudge will still be awesome to eat.

    *Adding another Wayfaring Chocolate recipe to my computer-iPad-syncing Evernote (, so that it’s accessible to me always.

    I DISlike the fact that you can buy Milo porridge now!!!

  16. Anna Johnston

    Bestie darling, I like your little black dress and your heels, what size are you? Can I borrow? I like that it is Friday and that I soon finish this ridiculously cold and ear aching week, I like that next Friday we will be catching up, I like going to the Day Spa with my Mom tomorrow morning, I like secret underground tunnels, I like Milo by the truck load, I like the sun soaking into my skin, I like Mr HG very much, I like my cozy COZY warm bed, and I like Gilmore Girls Season 7. My list of likes today really could go on…. Want me too????
    PS: Comments working on the blog. 🙂 I like that VERY much.

  17. chanel11

    What a great idea for a post.

    Today I like oranges and sleeping in

  18. Sarah B @ Bake + Bike

    What a cheerful post! I like your Audrey Hepburn dress very much.

    Today I like freshly-picked cherries and sudden summer thunderstorms!

  19. Karen

    Hannah, sorry for making you so cranky with my temperature comment. I forgot that you’re in the middle of winter – if it’s any consolation, with the exception of skiing, winter is one long, dark, and freezing affair in Austria. If we didn’t have such lovely summers, we’d all go mad here.

  20. Ellie@fitforthesoul

    Oh myyy, Hannah!! I absolutely love the whole outfit and I think it goes great with the shoes! Totally something I would wear–and I love pockets too 😀 And I like that I had a sweet time with girlfriends yesterday for a surprise birthday. Oh!! And we also went to Korean/Asian karaoke. Not the kind that you make a fool of yourself in front of strangers in a bar 😛

  21. Emma

    I like coming home and not having to cook dinner!

    I also love dresses with pockets. I don’t think I use them, but I like that they’re there 🙂

  22. Fiona

    I like that dress! I need to figure out where I put my dress wth pockets!

  23. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    I like: your Liz Lemon quote! 😀 Big love there!

  24. Kate at FudgyGoodness

    What a great post, Hannah! Love love love the dress, even though I can’t for the love of me understand how you can possibly wear it in this weather! …. But most importantly, I’m sorry to say you kind of lost me at “nutella fudge”. It looks unbelievably delicious!! And… I’m loving the Max Brenner chocolate bar in Belconnen at the moment 🙂

  25. Errign

    Today, I like: watching loads of episodes of Charmed, knowing that I’ve found a job, planning out my Saturday to include going to Barnes & Noble/Starbucks to “work” on my blog, the free-ish yogurt coupons I got today, and yoga (lots of yoga).

    I have only tried Milo once & it was in Singapore in a Milo McFlurry from McD’s.

  26. Junia @ Mis Pensamientos

    oh gosh, u’re dresses are adorable. hehehe i like feeling pretty too. you and your brother have a very endearing relationship – you so lucky! and i don’t think i’ve ever seen any of those asian snacks before!

  27. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    Pockets in a dress are totally underestimated (and thus, unortunately, often neglected by tailoring). I’m looking forward to the day when pockets in dresses are declared a necessity for optimal comfort: Nothing makes you feel more relaxed than knowing where to put your hands (and posing with your hands in the waist is not an option because it’s sooooooo worn off). Plus, hands in the pockets of a skirt give you that optimally fancy tulip shape. Whee! 😀

  28. Bianca @ Confessions of a Chocoholic

    I like dresses with pockets too. And hot pink manicures and pedicures. And I like – no, I LOVE – Nutella fudge 🙂 I make mine with espresso salt but yours look like so much more fun!

  29. Gmasydney

    I like: (1) Reading your blogs;
    (2) reading Whispering gum’s blogs;
    (3) Granddaughters who drop in with lovely birthday presents (continuing our family’s tradition of celebrating birthdays over at least a week);
    (4) birthday treats that can be eaten straight from the freezer (yes, that’s right!);
    (5) Granddaughters who drop in, with or without birthday treats.
    (6) my family – all of them.

  30. whisperinggums

    If I’d known how my inscriptions and notes were going to be used … great post but WC!

  31. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)

    I love dresses with pockets too! I tried mochi once and hated it, but I think I’ll eat anything with PB, so I would try that 🙂

  32. theresa

    I like you.

    I also like that I got two BIG black sapotes from the markets this morning, and although they won’t be ripe for a few days, I’m happy in the knowledge that I’ll soon be eating them (they’re aka “chocolate pudding fruit”).

  33. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I like this post! Your photo of the nutella fudge is gorgeous and the photo of you in the dress equally so 🙂 I have found a new affection for dresses in my adult years, after disliking them for much of childhood and adolescence. Also, inheriting that Shakespeare set is pretty amazing. What a lovely thing to have in the family to pass down!

  34. Sarah

    Hannah, I love your dress! And you look amazing in it!

    I also love your other current likes. Esp the complete works of Shakespeare (great quote from Augustine).

    Hope you’re having a great weekend x

  35. msihua

    You like me? Oooh…. yayy!… Snow Pea snack? I wanttttt!! How come I didn’t see any from here.. are they from Japan when they went? Could they leave me a box too, as I babysat for them 😛

  36. Agnes

    Who is that girl with the straight hair in the top photo and what is she doing on your blog? She has a nice smile though. Have you made a new friend?

    😉 xx

  37. Susan

    Oh I still haven’t tried those mochi balls, will have to look for them next time I’m in the asian grocery and definitely the peanut butter ones!
