I'm watching Ferris Bueller now... well not right now, but when I'm on my elliptical exercise thingy. I love that movie!

Ferris Bueller is one of my all time favorites.

Genius.

I can probably say all the lines along with the movie.


I think I am going to buy the CD version mainly to get the extras.
Plus my video can probably only last so long.

I hate tags - ruins the potential for authentic conjecture.

Steel Magnolias I've probably seen 50 times, at least and nothing beats the cheesy yumminess of Vegas... except maybe the Riviera or indeed Greek Isles :-)

Right now, I'm watching Emeril and he's making macaroni and cheese with maytag blue cheese. Maytag is awesome, but it seems like it would be a little salty/strong for the mac.

You sound like a really interesting person! Have a great weekend. (Michele sent me)

Ferris Bueller and Boogie Nights.....sigh. What great films that have stood the test of time.

I could watch them over and over with a bowl of primo mac 'n cheese in my lap. Life would be good.

Hi! I'm loving your list and can so relate too a lot of them!
I love Ferris Beuller, and could never, ever get tired of him (and his famous lines!), What Not To Wear is what I look forward to, and Fajitas are the best! :-P
Glad I dropped by...I came via Micehele's!

Sounds like you've had some interesting jobs. I've always wanted to sell bongs... lol I'm not kidding. I think the people you would meet there would be incredibly amusing. I completely agree on the whole "What not to wear" thing. I have already watched 2 episodes today. Haha thats kinda sad i spose :) Michele sent me tonight.
