A Friday Meme


I saw this little meme floating around on the Internet and I thought, why not share this with you on a lovely Friday? Exactly. So here it goes.

Six things I could live without, but it wouldn’t be pretty:

1. My family and friends. I know, they’re technically not “things” and I don’t mean to get sappy, but they’re the first thing that comes to mind.
2. Internet (sad, but true).
3. (Cell) Phone – I talk to my sister (almost) every day. So yeah, it’s very necessary.
4. Coffee (with my milk). It’s my comfort drink.
5. My paper, scissors, glue, stamps, etc.
6. Books. I need books in my life. Period.

Six movies I’ve never seen before:

1. New Moon (don’t hate).
2. Saw (I just don’t do horror movies. Sorry.)
3. Mr. and Mrs. Smith (Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in one movie? Shoot me now!)
4. Natural Born Killers
5. Open Waters
6. Inception (I know, that needs to be remedied immediately.)

Six pet peeves:

1.  when someone very obviously ignores me.
2.  when someone is passive aggressive.
3.  when someone chews with their mouth open. Sorry, but so annoying.
4.  when someone doesn’t leave an appropriate tip.
5.  when someone bails on me without any good reason.
6.  when someone isn’t straight-forward with me. I can’t stand beating-around-the-bush-ers.

Six things I really love doing:

1. taking pictures.
2. having dinner with my husband.
3. curling up on the couch with a good book.
4. reading blogs (Duh.)
5. going out for coffee.
6. traveling by myself.

Six TV shows I really enjoy:

1. Friends
2. The X-Files
3. All in the Family
4. Sex and the City
5. Summerland
6. My So-called Life

What? I am old-fashioned.

Six jobs I have held:

1.  Babysitter
2.  Vet assistant
3.  Physical Therapy Office Assistant
4.  Ice-Cream Parlor Waitress
5.  Tutor
6.  Mail (Wo)Man

Six books I’ve never read:

1. Any of the Twilight Books (I just won’t get sucked into this. I won’t.)
2. I gave up on the Harry Potter books after the second one (I believe?)
3. The Time Traveler’s Wife.
4. Sometimes A Great Notion.
5. In Cold Blood.
6. The Lovely Bones (I want to.)

Six movies I will always watch if they are on:

1.  Jerry McGuire
2.  The Holiday
3.  Before Sunrise
4.  The Saint
5.  The Big Lebowski
6.  One fine day

Anything you would like to share with me?

  1. High five for another non-Twilight person! Although you MUST read the Time Traveller’s Wife. I was late to the party too and it probably sat on my bookshelf for a good four years before I picked it up, but then I proceeded to read it front to back twice in a row, bawling each time. It’s fantastic!!

    And I loved learning about your past jobs, SO interesting to hear a little bit of history :)

  2. i haven’t read or seen anything twilight either. mr. & mrs. smith = great, fun movie. seriously. i have it on DVD and we’re watching it the next time you’re here. also you HAVE TO read “the lovely bones”. in fact, i will give it to you for christmas. just don’t tell santa and ruin the surprise. just make sure you don’t watch the movie before you read the book. i have the movie on DVD as well so we’ll watch that when you come, too. oh and i love, love, love “the holiday” and “the big lebowski”. heh. DUUUUDE!

  3. This is such a cute little meme! I really want to read The Lovely Bones too, but I’m hesitant because of the subject matter- I’ll let you know when I man up :)
    .-= Kyla Roma´s last blog ..Friday Finds want you to know it gets better =-.

  4. Okay, those last three books on your never read list??? You MUST, MUST, MUST read them. “Sometimes A Great Notion” is one of my favorite books, as is “The Lovely Bones.” Such incredible stories.

    And, uhh, I still watch “My So-Called Life” on the regular. :)

  5. I think your pet peeves are mine too! Exactly.

    I highly recommend the Lovely Bones to you or any of your readers, it’s definitely on my top 5 list of all time favourite books. I also recommend The Time Traveler’s Wife, it’s number 2 on my list of all time faves. GREAT reads, both! (To warn you, they’re both awfully sad.)

  6. I hate it when people chew with their mouths open. I really bothers me.

  7. We need to “go out for coffee” some time. It’s one of my most favorite things to do. :)
    .-= Stefanie´s last blog ..The Social Network or lack thereof =-.

  8. Love the “retro” TV show list. And I can’t get into the whoel Twilight thing either. I just don’t get it.
