hmmm...

I can never decide on what my favorite thngs are. My fav food is my mom's slow cooked pot roast which is in our slow cooker right now. When I read the French toast on your list it reminded me of something that I thought was intresting. I had a friend at camp once who was French and she had never heard of or had French toast until we had it for breakfast one morning!

I think you all know by now

I think you all know by now my favorite music artist is Josh Groban. My favorite author right now is Lemony Snicket, though that could change at any given moment. For food, I like what we call Skinner Stew. It's like, cabbage, sausage and lots of other stuff. It's very German. Not really sure what are my favorite books, there are too many. Movies I can't say either. I like Witness of the Prosecution. I'm not sure if that's one of my favorites, but I really like it.

By Operation Petticoat, do you mean the one with Cary Grant and Tony Curtis? Caroline, my sister, loves that movie.

yup

operation petticoat with cary grant and tony curtis. very good old movie. stalag 17 is also very good; i think that one came out around the same year as the operation petticoat. =)

Anonymous | Wed, 11/26/2008

Yeah I like Stalag 17, but I

Yeah I like Stalag 17, but I don't really like William Holden, he annoys me. Oh someone said up there Arsenic and Old Lace, I love that movie. I love Cary Grant. Someone also said Bringing up Baby. That was the only movie I like her in (I say her because I can't rememeber her name). Pretty much anything Cary Grant is great. I like The Great Escape too. Have you seen Enemy at the gates? It's a good movie but it left me depressed for days. Also a few things in it.....Notorious is a good movie, but Cary Grant isn't as good in a serious role. I like a lot of movies....too numerous to metion.

Sorry, MLFFCD. ML. Not MD. My bad.
Yes, with my own characters too. Gilligan is one. And other people's- Aragorn (LotR), Char (Ella Enchanted), Gilbert Blythe (Anne of Green Gables), Cal-raven (Auralia's Colors)... And in movies. It's bad.

Eewww! Gilbert Blythe. I

Eewww! Gilbert Blythe. I havn't read the books, and maybe that's what your talking about, but in the movie.....She should have married the millionaire. He had a nice daughter, he had money, he had lots of houses, and he was a nice guy. My only complaint would have been his teeth, but I'm sure I'd get over that. The only reason I have such a big problem with people's teeth, is because I'm about to get braces, and now I pay attention to EVERYBODIES teeth. Anyway, I will never forgive her for refusing that wonderful millionaire. But I like Aragorn, and Mr. Darcy, and kind of Mr. Knightly, and the prince in The Silver Chair (that one doesn't make much sense, as he doesn't come in much), and the guy in Enchanted (not the prince, the other one). Yeah, I like a lot of them.

I like Gilbert Blythe too.

Tamerah | Thu, 11/27/2008

I forgot about Darcy and

I forgot about Darcy and Knightley... Yes, I love them too. :D
I was talking about the book. Once I saw part of the movie... but it was ages ago.
EW, Roy? But he had no depth to him! He was all face and romantic mannerisms! Gilbert has heart and soul and humor!

Gilbert was my first real

Gilbert was my first real literary love... I used to read the last chapter of Anne of the Island over and over again when I was 10. Then I re-read it lately and thought, "Ha... this is so sappy." :D

I didn't care for him in the second movie either, The Brit. In fact, I didn't like that second movie at all...

I didn't read the books, so

I didn't read the books, so you are probably closer to the truth. Anyway, I suggest you see the movies to know what I'm talking about. I hope you agree at least on the guy who played Gilbert. He also does this weird thing when he says sorry. Idon't know about you, but when I say sorry, I say it more like sarry. He says sooorrryy, really emphasizing the O R. Maybe it's a Canadian thing....

What do you think of Edward in Sense and Sensiblity? I think he was a nice enough guy, but couldn't they get someone who didn't pull in his head like a turtle.

I only put up with Edward because Elinor loves him so, to tell the truth.

The first and only time I

The first and only time I saw Sense and Sensibility, I was 11, it was around 2 am, and I had watched movies all night.
Peter Pan, Riley Poole, and Jack Sparrow are my other fictional loves. There are probably more but those are the last ones that come to mind. :)

Wow, how did we get to

Wow, how did we get to talking about this? Anna, do you mean Riley Poole as in National Treasure Riley Poole? If so, I wouldn't say that he's in my five, but he's funny. Hey why don't we just put our top five up. I'll go first (and this may vary from day to day).

1. The guy that I'm always planning for a story
2. Mr. Darcy
3. Aragorn
4. The guy from 'Mara, Daughter of the Nile'
5. I'll leave this last one for changing space
