Taken from [profile] julielu (so far).  From Entertainment Weekly's top 100 movies of the last 25 years. Go through their list, BOLD the ones you have seen, and underline the ones you own; put an asterisk next to the one you love. Italicize the ones you want to see.

What this tells me is a.) I have seen A LOT of movies; b.) the people who made this list have some questionable taste; and c.) there are not many movies that I want to see if I haven't seen them already.  Most of my Netflix queue is TV series, much of it from overseas.

I think Last of the Mohicans should be on here; Sense and Sensibility (ET version), too.  I'd rather see English Patient or Cold Mountain or Truly, Madly, Deeply on there instead of Mr. Ripley, but I'm glad to see Minghella made it. 

Many of my other favorites: Casablanca, most of Hitchcock, Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, Breakfast at Tiffany's are over 25 years old.  Even Empire Strikes Back is, I think. 

So happy to see Witness and Glory and some less flashy films on here.

Sigh.

I love movies.

You Are a Fork



You are truthful, direct, and straight forward.

People find your honesty to be a bit piercing at times.



You are driven and wildly ambitious.

You know what you want, and you take the most direct path to getting it.

Most memes I come across are not really "my thing" so to speak, but HOW one speaks absolutely is!  I was a linguistics major, and I just plain love dictionaries, words and dialects.

So, gakked from [personal profile] adventurat, I give you my "nomenclature":

[profile] sietskeneele gave me the letter L in this meme.  That seems hard, but I'm sure I have something (in no particular order):

1.) The Lord of the Rings.  Books as well as movies; books were a pre-teen favorite, though I liked the Hobbit better then.

2.) Laura Ingalls Wilder and the...

3.) Little House books  When I was a kid, and you'd ask me, "If you could meet one person in history, who would that be?", I'd always answer Laura Ingalls Wilder. 

4.) Little Ones (specifically toddlers and preschoolers)

5.) Black Licorice (Red twists are really not licorice, so the adjective "black" should be unnecessary.  It's like white coating being called white chocolate.  Blech.)

6.) Loving my husband and kids (I said no particular order)

7.) Lilacs, Lilies, and especially Lilies of the Valley--the scents of spring at my childhood home

8.) Liz, Lalor Family, Laura T, oLivia C, Lise (and her stories), Grandma Louise--some of favorite people are L's

9.) Lauren, my personal trainer--it's a love/hate thing, really!  But, she's got me on track and keeps me there.  She also represents my new-found love of exercise, especially strength training.

10.) and last but of course not least, the Lord of the Universe, who became a human baby so that we could know him.  Merry Christmas Season, everyone!

And one L thing I hate:  Leeches.  Blech.
