Favorite movie quote
You can’t really expect me to pick just one, can you? Well, I decided to try and use ones that are things I actually frequently say. Here’s a bunch, in no particular order. I’ll do it interactive-style. Feel free to guess the movie!
“I gave her my heart and she gave me a pen.”
“It’s sucking my will to live.”
“Strange things are afoot at the Circle K”
“Baby Talk? That’s not a saying.”
“Oh, but Baby Fish Mouth is sweeping the nation?”
“Surely you can’t be serious?”
“I am serious, and don’t call me Shirley.”
“That word. You keep using it. I do not think it means what you think it means.”
Bonus (not movie quotes): two quotes from Mr. Show
“Because life is precious. And God. And the Bible.”
“You don’t know what words mean, do you?”
Something that made you smile today
- Some of my favorite students winning awards at our underclassmen awards ceremony this morning.
- A colleague telling me how happy she is that I was hired.
- My wonderful, sweet, amazing husband telling me how happy he is to be with me.
A 10+ year old picture
Me and Jen with country singer Collin Raye at a concert in Myrtle Beach. I’m having trouble remembering what year this was, but the last time we went to Myrtle Beach was 2000, and I don’t think this was that year.
But here’s another one for good measure:
Me and Lisa, Alpha Delta Pi Spring Party, 1994 (I think).
What’s that? You want to see a pic of me in high school?
That’s me going to the prom in 1990. (Yes, I cropped ex bf out of the photo…)
Yeah, I kinda lost track there. I’m going to skip to Day 17.
A Childhood Picture
I was somewhere around 4-5 in this photo, which makes this the late 70s. That might be the longest my hair has ever been.
When we were kids, people used to think my friend Jennifer and I were related. I didn’t get it then, but looking at this picture, I can kind of see what they were talking about!
I am certain I have no photos of myself in this…but lately, my favorite outfit is a pair of gray sweatpants and a navy blue hoodie.
Apart from that, I just bought this adorable little dress from Land’s End:
Er, I can’t seem to grab the image, so here’s a link.
I got in in navy blue, and last week, I wore it with a red cardigan. Very cute.
Again, I’m not sure I can come up with a single favorite food…so I’m going to post about two of my favorite meals. These are things I will never pass up an opportunity to eat!
#1 Chicken Muglai at Taste of India (or India Gate)
I *always* have it with naan. Sometimes, I get appetizers…I especially like the paneer pakora and alu tikki. Yum…I’m getting hungry just thinking about it! Indian tea makes a great addition to the meal as well.
#2 Bulgogi (barbecued beef) at Woo Chon Korea House in Williamsville
I like to get the mandoo gui (dumplings) as an appetizer, even with all the other stuff they bring out!
While there are literally hundreds of books that I love, there is only one answer to this question. My favorite book of all time is A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle.
A short list of other books I love:
- To Kill a Mockingbird
- The Velveteen Rabbit
- The Handmaid’s Tale
- Girlfriend in a Coma
- The Shining
I will probably cheat on many of these, because I have such a hard time narrowing anything like this down to just one choice.
So, there’s this guy…
And this one…
And I’ve become a huge fan of this one, too.
And honestly, I could be here all day with this…but here are a few others I can’t go without mentioning:
Victor Garber, Neil Patrick Harris, Matthew Perry, Jason Segel, Alec Baldwin, John C. McGinley, Colin Firth, John Cusack…and I’ll probably remember a whole bunch more two minutes after I post this.
