Monday Randomness

randomness...feed your mind and your blog

week of june 3: name one of each

1. a movie that made you laugh - Dodgeball. I know it's juvenile. But I just can't help it. This movie is funny to me. I can just look at Ben Stiller and laugh. Vince Vaughn is the perfect straight man for him. He cracks me up too. Besides...they have a PIRATE!

2. a book that made you cry - The Book Thief by Markus Zuzak- I read this at the beginning of the year. I was sobbing by the end of the book. It was like Zuzak stomped on my heart!! It really touched me.

3. a best friend - Missy - You know who you are!! We started Kindergarten together.....and we've been best friends since. She is the godmother to my kid's, my matron-of-honor, my confidant. I know we don't talk as much as we used to. But she also knows I will always be there if she ever needs anything!! I'm as close as a phone call....and I can drive that 3 hours in about 2!

4. a favorite childhood memory - My favorite memory from childhood would probably be going horseback riding with my Grandpa. We used to saddle up and go check on the cattle in the pastures across the stream. I could spend hours outside with him. He used to call me his little Hunny Pot (hence the Pooh references I'm always making!) I miss him so much sometimes.

5. your favorite animal - at the moment, it's probably my St. Bernard, Rocco. He's a huge baby, but I just love him so much!! He's a cuddler!

6. your favorite food - A big, fat, juicy Ribeye!! Cooked medium, so there's just a little pink.

7. an item of clothing you can't do without - My Chicago Bears Sweatshirt. It's warm and loved and broken in just right!!

8. something you collect - Books! But of course, everyone KNOWS that!! Otherwise, I have a whole glass cabinet full of Precious Moments. My husband has bought me a couple a year since we were dating.

9. your favorite store to shop in - Barnes & Noble. Yeah....There's not much more I can say to that question!

10. your favorite flower - I LOVE the smell of Lilacs. I have 2 lilac bushes in front of my house. They are so delicate and smell so wonderful. It's a shame they only bloom for such a short time every year.

till next time...

I love lilacs too. The only perfume I ever wear is the lilac essence oil from The Body Shop. It smells exactly like the flower, and I get compliments all the time on it.

Chris said...

I've gotta get around to The Book Thief. Everyone's read it and it's been on my wishlist for awhile. I've heard nothing but great stuff about it. I'm guilty of B&N being my favorite shopping spot too :p

I can't bring myself to watch Dodgeball. I hated the game in school and so haven't been able to get past that to see the movie. LOL

Like Chris, I have yet to read The Book Thief. Maybe it should be at the top of my TBR Challenge list next year. i like books that make me cry.

Kookie - There used to be a lilac fragrance at Bath & Body Works, but they discontinued it. I was so sad!! I will have to check out The Body Shop.

Chris and Wendy - You HAVE to read The Book Thief!! It was a phenomenal book!! (I wasn't a big dodgeball fan in school, that's for sure. But the movie really is funny!)

No one was more bummed than me when Bath & Body Works discontinued their lilac scent. I'm still hoping they'll bring it back someday.

I love lilacs, and I'll have to check out the perfume! Also, have to read The Book Thief, it's another one of those books that everyone seems to have read but me!
