Sunday Stealing: Easter

From Sunday Stealing

Easter Meme

Five things I have a passion for: My husband, writing, reading, eating (apparently), thoughtful debates, and correct grammar.

Five things I'd like to learn before I die: What happens after you die, how to cook without calories, how to not take things personally, and how to grow a good tomato.

Five things I say a lot: "That's interesting."/ "F&ck." / "Why did you do that?" / "You can't fix stupid." / "I love you."

Five books and/or magazines I have read lately: 2 a.m. at the Cat's Pajamas, Reader's Digest, O!, The Four Agreements, The Roanoke Times (which is a newspaper but I read it daily).

Five favorite movies: The Lord of the Rings trilogy (actually 3 movies); The Hobbit trilogy (actually 3 movies); Dirty Dancing; Under the Tuscan Sun; Steel Magnolias.

Five places I would like to travel to: Egypt (to see the pyramids); Ireland; Scotland; England; Italy.

  1. I forgot Under the Tuscan Sun. Love that movie...it made me want to run away and live in a crumbling house in Italy.

    Have a Happy Easter!

  2. Came here from Sunday Stealing. It's funny how many in this group read the Reader's Digest! (including me). I had Egypt on my list too.

  3. I've about given up on the correct grammar thing. I think many of the schools have too these days... The 'it's' 'there', 'affect' violations make me crazy.

  6. I've been to all those places except Egypt and these days I'd be nervous about trying to go. I also probably say F*#k more than anything else, but you were more honest than I am. And BTW, if you sesnd me your e-mail address, I'll let you know about Peggy.

  7. Steel Magnolias is one of those touchstone movies, that people evoke to explain things. "You know, like in Steel Magnolias when ..." One friend used it to explain his misgivings about his daughter's pregnancy. Another used it to describe her initial discomfort with a very religious coworker.

  8. Yay, another Steel Magnolias fan! Ooh, I would love to see Egypt, too. Dangit, so many wonderful places still yet to visit... and so little time (and $$$)!

  10. When you learn that cooking without calories thing can you teach me? And no cheating by boiling water and calling that dinner!
