Barrie said...

Very interesting. And I didn't realize you'd lived in Manchester.

David Cranmer said...

Yeah, I could have added The Graduate to my list. A movie I've seen at least twenty times and have never grown tired of.

Frank Loose said...

I'm with you on Double Indemnity. In fact, I watch it once a year!

George said...

Patti, you have insomnia and I have the opposite condition: sleep apnea. But, at least I have a little CPAP machine that keeps me alive. Hopefully, the Mayo Clinc will discover a cure for both of our conditions.

George-I may have that as well. It may be what makes staying asleep difficult. Also grind my teeth. A pretty image, isn't it?

Charles Gramlich said...

We're very different about movies and TV shows, but it's all good.

George said...

No, Patti, you're not alone. I wear a Night Guard when I go to sleep because I grind my teeth, too. Plus, when I'm hooked up to my CPAP with all the hoses, I look (and sound) a bit like a mutant Darth Vader. Nice image, isn't it.

Oh, Manchester/so much to answer ..fer.

Peter Rozovsky said...

Nice food list. I set my summer camp's record when I ate fifty-two lamb chops at one sitting.

Why fifty-two, you may ask? Because the kitchen ran out.

Peter-You must have put that camp out of business. At my camp in the Poconos, we just ate sloppy joes most nights.

Peter Rozovsky said...

The camp did shut down a few years later. I had never thought that I might have been responsible.

I was tagged with this meme as well, if you'd care take a look. I like lamb chops to this day, though I did not include them on my list of four.

Patti, I love Bringing Up Baby and Mad Men, too. I didn't know you lived in Manchester and Amsterdam. How fascinating. A play in the West End sounds good. When do we leave? ;)

I may join in this weekend if I can figure out all the answers. The last one is probably the toughest.

This is an interesting meme isn't it. I'll come with you to Venice, and Amasterdam, and Greece. Peter Tagged me with this result - just realised some of the links I've left elsewhere had incorrect html and so won't work :-(
