I'm in heaven. Tomorrow I move into my new office with a window! I have my own office now but it's a cave with no window. I'm solar powered - I need sunlight. Anyway. Here's my answers to the latest meme from CindyS and KristieJ (with my dull boring answers):

I like seeing what other people put--like you love Moonstruck, like I do, and visit the Huffington Post (the other sites--AAR, AMazon--aren't as much of a surprise).

Congrats on the window, too!

ReneeW said...

Megan: Wow really? I think that last scene in Moonstruck in the kitchen is probably one of the funniest ever written. I laugh every time I watch it. Don't you just love HuffPost. I'm an unapologetic liberal and since my husband considers himself republican I get lots of ammunition for any political *discussions* :).

Congrats on the window, hope the view is great.

Kristie (J) said...

I think I'm the only person I know who reads romance that hasn't seen any versions of P&P. In fact I only have the vaguest idea of what's it about.

ReneeW said...

Tara: Thanks! It was a beautiful sunny day today just for me so I could sit and stare out the window (and get nothing done). I love my new office.

Kristie: You have GOT to be kidding me!! I. am. shocked. Are you saying that you have never read P&P or seen the movie? Do I have to start a list and put your name at the top?

CindyS said...

Well, Renee, if you make that list, you better put me on it. Right now I have the lastest one rented so we'll see if I can get the nerve to watch it.

I have never read P&P and never been able to catch P&P on A&E.

I watch What Not To Wear every so often and have discovered what looks good on a bigger girl like me. Waist length jackets over tees. So far, so good. It's when I get in a bathing suit that things get iffy ;)


Jay said...

I've never seen/read P&P either, but I don't need (want) to be added to the list ;)

ReneeW said...

Cindy: I just got the latest P&P movie in the mail from netflix and I'm looking forward to watching it Fri. night. I'm curious how close it is to the book. The A&E version was very close and of course Colin Firth is yummy. If you enjoy it, you really must try the book, please, please, please??

Just thinking about wearing a bathing suit gives me hives.

Jay: You are excused because I know your tastes tend to contemporary. Rather than make a list, I may just take a poll :) I

I watch P&P with Kiera Knightly and I quite enjoyed it except I kept thinking throughout the movie that I *knew* the story. Knowing I have never read the book or seen the A&E version I began to believe that I must have seen a British version (I have seen Persuasion).

Once the movie was finished I went looking for the alternate ending people had talked about but couldn't find it. I did, however, look at the history of the story only to discover that I had seen this story played out before!

I rented the Bollywood movie Bride and Prejudice about 4 months ago!! Too funny!

Now, I must see the Colin Firth version because he's yummy.


Wow, I haven't touched my blog in over 6 years and I'm still logged in!  Good thing because I have no idea what my password is.  In ...
