Saturday 9

1) Has anyone ever told you that you resemble a celebrity? I used to hear that I looked like Julie from The Love Boat. I think it's because we wore our hair the same way back in those long-ago days.
2) Is there an actress or actor whose movies you make it a point to see? Bruce Willis! I have always loved him, since Moonlighting. Though I missed Looper, I did see (and love) Moonrise Kingdom and there's a new Die Hard coming out soon. And Leonardo DiCaprio, though I won't see D'jango Unchained. I found Inglorious Basterds really disturbing and that turned me off Quentin Tarentino.
3) We're stopping for refreshments before we go in to see the movie. What's your refreshment stand order? Lately it's popcorn. It used to be Goobers or Raisinettes.

4) When did you last consume an alcoholic beverage? What was it? Last night it was Miller Time. It was the first liquor I've had since New Year's Eve/Day. With my cold I didn't feel like drinking.

5) Are you jumpy? Do you startle easily? Yes. I'm a writer, and at work, when I'm lost in thought, I lose track of my surroundings. My boss thinks it's amusing to make me jump. 

6) Do you wear a watch? Yes. I switch them out a lot.
7) When was the last time you tried a new restaurant? New Year's Eve. It was delicious. If you're ever in Key West, I recommend The Grand Cafe.
8) What color is your wallet? Brown 
9) How much does it have in coins right now? Now, see, that would entail getting up and grabbing my purse and that is simply not going to happen just now. I can say it has no quarters. I take them out all the time and set them aside for laundry.


  1. I'm a quarter hoarder but I do a weekly collection and it's that time of the week. My wallet regularly gets heavy because of it.

  2. Dropping some love from a woman that loves coke and a jumper like you do :)

    Have a good weekend gorgeous, gal :) x

    Hugs x

  3. Tarantino is pretty disturbing at times, although I loved Kill Bill, especially the scenes with the crazy 88s and the house of the blue leaves (the whole lucy liu part). I won't be seeing Django unchained either.

  4. OK - so I'm not the only one that didn't like Inglorious Basterds? I thought it was really violent, and I don't know - the older I get, the less I like watching that crap. There's no need for it.

    I vote for Goobers - no Raisinettes!

  5. I liked Bruce Willis in the movie "The Fifth Element"

  6. I have a sudden urge to go buy some Raisinettes! Yum, I haven't had them in a long time!I'm always looking forward to the next Bruce Willis movie!

    It's scary how amusing people find it to startle the ebbilibbins outta other people! I do, too, lol.

  8. I love Bruce Willis too... I'm looking forward to the new Die Hard movie.

  9. Looper was my favorite movie of 2012 which is saving something with The Avengers and The Hobbit both being right in my wheelhouse.

  10. Ha ha your answer to the last question made me laugh. I thought the same thing so just guessed! :)
    Although Tarantino films are violent the writing is so clever. I loved inglorious basterds and django was outstanding, both really good stories. Admittedly though, I covered my eyes throughout both films.

  11. Leonardo is another one I meant to mention! Good call. He went from teen heartthrob to super-awesome/serious actor! Also, I'm glad people who do this meme are into Bruce Willis, because I forgot I'd picked up "Looper" from RedBox yesterday. Totally watching that tonight :)

  12. I love Goobers. I don't seem to find them around here as often.

  13. I remember getting the Julie perm. I'm so glad perms are out.
