Top Three--Several of Them

I found this from Jill, who got it from someone else, so it kind of a steal/borrow thing.  I though it looked fun, but will be interesting to see if I can narrow down my favorites.

top 3 movies
  • Lord of the Rings
  • The Thin Man
  • Hello Dolly
This one was tough--I have lots of movies I love, but these are ones I can watch over and over--just for me, no kid movies.  In fact the kids bellyache over the last two when ever I want to watch them.  The Lord of the Rings  is almost cheating, but really can you watch one without the others?

Top 3 actors
  • Matt Damon
  • Bruce Willis
  • Sean Connery
These actors need no real explanation--they are really good actors.  I've liked Matt Damon since the Bourne movies.  Bruce Willis isn't afraid to make fun of himself--either in action or in more comedic roles. Sean Connery was awesome as James Bond and then had some really fabulous movies when he was older--still a good looking man as he aged.

Top 3 actresses
  • Sandra Bullock
  •  Drew Barrymore
  • Myrna Loy
These are great actresses. No one said they had to still be living.  Myrna Loy was Nora Charles in the Thin MAn series and had several other movies with William Powell and other wonderful roles.  Drew Barrymore is so cute and Sandra has had some really good and fun movies.

Top 3 country singers
  • Jason Aldean
  • Sugarland
  • Miranda Lambert
I love country music--it's what plays most often at our house.  All these artists are ones I really enjoy.

Top 3 TV shows
  • The Big Bang Theory
  • Mythbusters
  • What Not To Wear
Everyone in the house like Big Bang--so much so that Turbo quotes the show frequently.  It's a big hit in our family.  Likewise Mythbusters.  We all enjoy watching the antics and science of the Mythbusters crew.  What Not to Wear is just for me--the guys aren't that into it.

Top 3 travel destinations
  • Hawaii
  • Alaska
  • Australia/New Zealand
I'm not one for international travel--it's too much hassle.   There are great things to see that don't require a passport.  Although, I'd love to go down under for a visit.

Top 3 books
  • The Fairy Godmother by Mercedes Lackey
  • Warrior by Zoe Archer
  • Polgara the Sorceress by David Eddings
These are just three of my all time favorites--choosing was nearly impossible.  I've read all of Eddings fantasy books and am now reading the first series out loud in the car to the guys. Polgara is the last book of the Belgariad/Mallorean series. Absolutely awesome books in the fantasy genre.  Warrior is the first in a series of four books that are Victorian steampunkish/fantasy.  Again wonderful reads.  The Fairy Godmother was a book I picked up on a whim and ended up loving.  It takes traditional fairy tales and turns them inside out and is so fun--there are about six books in the series so far and I hope Mercedes Lackey writes more.  I could go on and on about books I love and if you remember the pictures of the book shelves in my basement, bookworm is a mild term for me.

Top three curse words:
  • frack/flippin
  • Dammit
  • Fewmits
Those are the PG versions of the words that slip out in times of stress or pain.  I can do the potty mouth thing with the best of them, butt with kiddos around you try to censor yourself somewhat. Although fewmits works well in place of sheeite.  It means dragon droppings and works pretty well in most situations.  It also makes the boys laugh and sometimes a good laugh is just the thing to drop the tension.

Feel free to borrow away.  It can be fun to think about these sorts of things.

LOL at your curse words. I am terrible about dropping them in front of the kids now and then so I do try very hard to adjust them. i.e. Darn it all!
