1. Moulin Rouge
2. Velvet Goldmine
3. The Stand
4. The Quiet Man

FOUR DEAD MOVIE STARS I CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF:

1. Humphrey Bogart
2. Marilyn Monroe
3. There must be others but
4. I can't think of any more right now

FOUR PLACES I HAVE LIVED:

1. Wilmington, MA
2. Block Island, RI
3. Narragansett, RI
4. North Kingstown, RI

FOUR TV SHOWS I LIKE TO WATCH (I get ALL of these by way of download, since I never turn on my television except for baseball):

1. Reruns of oh, so many things
2. Little Mosque on the Prairie
3. The Colbert Report
4. The Mercer Report

FOUR PLACES I HAVE BEEN ON VACATION:

1. Cairo, Egypt
2. Cape Breton, NS
3. Atlanta, GA (visiting patchfire is a vacation)
4. London, ON (if you can call a high school band trip a vacation)

FOUR MUSICIANS FROM MY FORMATIVE YEARS THAT I STILL LISTEN TO, THAT ALWAYS SURPRISES ME WHEN IT STRIKES A NOTE OF NOSTALGIA IN A MEMBER OF MY GENERATION WHO HAPPENS TO OVERHEAR, WHICH MAKES ME WONDER JUST WHAT THE FUCK DO THEY LISTEN TO NOW? FUCKIN HIP HOP? NEW COUNTRY? JOSH GROBIN? NOTHING?

Taking "formative years" to mean through high school:

What is this "Celebrity Chef" of which you speak?

FOUR CELEBRITY CHEFS I WOULD LIKE TO BITCHSLAP, AND IF I EVER MEET THEM IN PERSON, WILL:

Why would anyone want to bitchslap a chef? For overcooked broccoli? And how could someone come up with EIGHT CELEBRITY CHEFS? Geez, and I thought I had no life.

FOUR PLACES I WOULD RATHER BE RIGHT NOW:

1. Cape Breton, NS (YES, EVEN IN THE SNOW, I HAVE NEVER *NOT* BEEN THERE IN THE SNOW))
2. Atlanta, GA (two words: pencil building. OMG MARTHA, IS THAT YOU?)
3. Maine (mostly because I'm still all t00by about Steve from Bangor)
4. Boston (well, gee, apparently I don't want to leave East, but I'm okay with North and/or South. Poor, neglected West.)



Also, OH, NOES!

*sighs wearily* topaz7 did try to warn me.

It's all part of an evil, insidious plot.

Of course, Gordon Pinsent by now has most likely retired from his evil, nefarious job of Fearless Battle Veteran:


He's probably Fearless Battle Veteran Emeritus by now.

The Canadians, being consumed by the rage of patriotic blood fever as they are, would have immediately found someone at least as sinister and sadistic:


The world is doomed.

Oh God. Moulin Rouge. I think I saw that at least a dozen times in the theater. Ewan was so good in that and he didn't get the recognition he deserved for it.

And Velvet Goldmine. *sigh* I love that so much. In fact, I watched it again this weekend.

I lost count at the number of times I saw it, but yeah. At least a dozen.

And Velvet Goldmine. *sigh* I love that so much. VG is my very very favourite movie of all time, ever.

OH NOES, THEY'RE ALL GAY.

Of course, this might be news to Canadians who um, aren't.

Bwoah! Here comes the Flying Radical Liberal Brigade of Death! Cover up your asses and nail bibles to the front doors of your houses - they're coming to get you!

Honestly, do you know this feeling when something is so unbelievably illogical that you can't start arguing against it, because you don't know where to begin? I'm sure Douglas Adams coined a Liff for that...

It's the Brain-Hurty Headdesking of Doom, or something.

Eight celebrity chefs? Who in their right mind could name eight celebrity chefs? *is flummoxed*

Hee, Canada is trying to 'gay' America. Don't they know that fangirls are trying to gay it from the inside out?

The Beloved says I have to tell you that Richard Biggs is dead. He's been that way for nearly three years so you'll probably know this already, but TB only just found out and he's a big B5 fan so I think he's tarring everyone with the same brush. Aortal tear apparently - poor guy.

So glad you had fun with Mr King.

Who in their right mind would WANT to?

Yeah, I've known that since not long after it happened. Waaay too young. And god, was he gorgeous. Does your Beloved know that Andreas Katsulas died as well, yes? Also Tim Choate. Is B5 The New Macbeth or something?

So glad you had fun with Mr King.

I assure you that my interest in Sai King is purely platonic. *g*

TB did not know about Tim Choate but says seeing as how he was 110 plus 1000 years it's hardly surprising. I have decided to postpone the lecture on the border between fantasy and reality seeing as how not so long ago I was convinced I was meeting Ray Vecchio for lunch - the words would fall hollow from my lips.

I think Ms Christian, The Scarecrow and The Bargain Basement Bruce Willis should up their medical insurance forthwith.

However, Mira is above any curse that may fall upon the common folk. She stands between the darkness and the light, and all. My story and I'm sticking to it.

Well, okay, it's JMS's story, but whatever. :)

We've just booked our flights to Nova Scotia!

However, I am very worried about becoming brainwashed by these homosexual pinko-liberal tree-hugging athiest bastards.

You're going to Nova Scotia? Like really? Where?

*deadpan* Yes, Nova Scotia is a hive of iniquity. Just ask dragonflymuse.

Hee!

We're going around the South Shore mostly to visit a couple of friends and also so that I can go to Lunenburg and run off with Gus Knickle. I'm joking about that last part.

Going to Lunenburg is wonderful no matter what the reason. I've never been there, but I'm going to make it a priority next time I'm in NS, which hopefully will be sometime this year.

Perhaps you Americans should fear us turning you French, rather than gay :P

They never expect the reverse reaction. Like when Fred Phelps picketed MisterRogers' funeral (for reasons I never did figure out, something about PBS and the Presbyterians) and my reaction was to donate money to the Matthew Shepard Foundation in his name (MisterRogers' name, not Fred Phelps').

Couldst thou be an anti-TV elitist (in which case I argue that the content of a program is the same whether over 'net or airwave), or dost thou not have cable (in which case I both adore and pity you)?

...WHICH MAKES ME WONDER JUST WHAT THE FUCK DO THEY LISTEN TO NOW?...JOSH GROBIN?

Seriously. Did you put his name in there just for me to see? I mean, check out my most recent journal entry. I adore Josh Groban. Problem with that, missy? *puts up dukes*

By the by, I'll bet Jim can name 8 "celebrity" chefs. He loves to cook and probably harbors a fantasy of being one himself.

As for the Great Canadian Conspiracy, this is supposed to be news? Darling. I've known you're one of their deep cover field agents for a long time.

No problem, dear one. I didn't write the meme. I thought about deleting that part, because I did think of you, and then I thought, mneh. I'm not gonna tamper with the meme. But as for sai Groban, I have no problem with him. He has a lovely voice, actually. Even my mother likes him. :)

Couldst thou be an anti-TV elitist (in which case I argue that the content of a program is the same whether over 'net or airwave), or dost thou not have cable (in which case I both adore and pity you)?

Ostensibly I have Cable: there are wires coming from the walls and apparently I'm paying for it. The one room I checked didn't work with the TV. I use cable for my computer, but I've never cared enough to test the TV in every room (which I should, because, y'know, I'm actually paying MORE for TV).

Most of the shows I watch I can't get on broadcast TV (Cable or no) because they're either reruns or on premium channels or not American shows. I'm not a TV elitist in the broad sense, although I most likely come across that way in relation to specific programs. I'm also hyperaware of what some shows are teaching kids (and kids watch reality shows, y0), and some of the stuff out there makes me cringe. But no, I don't hate all TV, and yes, downloaded TV is still TV.

By the by, I'll bet Jim can name 8 "celebrity" chefs. He loves to cook and probably harbors a fantasy of being one himself.

I watch cooking shows once in a while (my mum loves 'em, so I watch at her house, and my friend Linda is a chef, so sometimes she has them on when I visit), but I have no idea who the chefs are, and don't rightly care.

As for the Great Canadian Conspiracy, this is supposed to be news? Darling. I've known you're one of their deep cover field agents for a long time.

I'm undercover trying to make the US gay for Canada? w00t! *ahem* In what sense? *g*
