8 things about me

Well, I got tagged. Here goes...

1. I will be thouroghly disappointed if Harry Potter dies in the upcoming book.

2. I have memorized three movies and one Shakespearean play.

3. I can't stand Mariachi/Zydeco music.

4. I'm currently learning to use a tuning fork.

5. I tend to put people I admire up on pedestals and I am viciously loyal to them.

6. I really, really like junk food. And I can't keep it in my house because I have no will power, in that respect.

7. I'm pretty intuitive, especially in regards to people's feelings. I have to remind myself to not get too nosy or too paranoid.:)

8. If somebody praises me, I will be in a good mood for days.

When you say you are learning to use the tuning fork, does that mean you're trying to find the place that hurts the least when you strike yourself with it?

Well, yes, that's part of it.

I wasn't even considering the death of mr. potter to be a possibility...now i'm scared.

I love live Mariachi bands...especially if they include a violin. Why don't you like them?

Let me praise you sincerely: Sara and I have been so happy to get to know you and watch you grow and really mature over our years at St. Barnabas. We hope our own children will grow into one so thoughtful as you. And, I hope they get a sense of humor like unto thine.

Thanks for the meme-age...i like this meme because it is so open ended, everyone has put up interesting and unique posts.

Aaron,

Yes. Most of my friends who are fans of Harry Potter are convinced he's going to die. :(


I don't know what it is really about Mariachi bands. The music is like annoying noise to me. Just not my thing. In a music class I took, I had to do a whole report on Mariachi/Zydeco music. I didn't find anything I liked.

You and Sara are awesome. I really love our St. Barnabas family and I'm glad you guys are a part of it.

Can you feel the love?

Harry Potter dying? Well, now I'm like all bummed! But then, J.K. Rowling hasn't offered us many happy endings with the last three, so I suppose it's worth considering.

And what, so Vooldemort would win? Naah, can't be.

Anyway, liked your list. Which Shakespearean play?

Which movies and which play have you memorized? That's quite an impressive feat!

I completely agree with you on junk food. Get thee behind me, Twinkies!

Mariachi is exquisitely beautiful music—I can't believe that anybody would find it distasteful. Since Mariachi bears no resemblance to Zydeco, I'm wondering if you might be thinking of some other genre, such as Norteño, which comes from a completely different region of Mexico? A lot of people don't like Zydeco and Norteño because of the accordion. Mariachi doesn't usually have an accordion, whereas Norteño is crazy with it. I happen to love the accordion and think that it's one of the greatest instruments ever invented!

Movies: Wayne's World, Princess Bride and Emma.

Shakespearean Play: Much Ado About Nothing (wonderful play)


I think Mariachi and Zydeco are really similar. My teacher proved to our class that Zydeco greatly influenced popular Mariachi bands.
I don't know anything about Norteno.

Maybe I haven't heard any good Mariachi music. Maybe it's just me.

Grace, as the prophecy writes: "Neither can live while the other survives." That doesn't exactly mean that they both can't die. It just means they can't both live. (Btw I read your comment on Sean's blog: I agree, Harry should take Snape and Malfoy with him. But wait! I don't want Harry to die.)

Good choice of Shakespearean play. That was the first one I ever read, and I liked it right away.

Favorite line is from Beatrice: "I wonder you will still be talking, Signior Benedick. Nobody marks you."

It would be very hard for me to choose a favorite line from that play but here's the one I'm thinking about right now:

"The world must be peopled! When I said I should die a bachelor I did not think I would live till I were married." Benedick


Also,

"'Against my will I am sent to bid you come into dinner' There's a double meaning in that!" Benedick says sincerely about how Beatrice insulted him.


"I can think of no rhyme for lady but baby. For scorn, horn. For school, fool. Though I was not born under a rhyming planet." Benedick says about writing poetry.


And possibly my favorite line in the whole play.

"I shall live in thy heart, die in thine lap, be buried in thine eyes, and moreover, I will go with thee to thy uncle's house." Benedick says to Beatrice when she asks him to accompany her to her uncle's house. (Said humorously)


It's a wonderful play.
