I can’t live without my books

Sometimes I just can’t come up with something to write about, and these linkup parties are becoming more and more what my postings are.  Until I get out of this massive study mode that I am in for work, I’m afraid this might be the norm for awhile . . . .  That being said, we’re off to start a new week, so here’s joining the

Sunday Social

  1. If you were stuck on an island what are the two material items you would want to have?
    A toothbrush that had a never-ending supply of toothpaste magically appearing when needed, and my Kindle with a solar recharging cell.  I think I have enough books to get me through a few years at least.
  2. What are two TV shows you’d watch over and over?
    Currently on air: The Big Bang Theory and Scandal.  Previously on air: I’d love to say Firefly but I’m afraid with only thirteen episodes I’d not be able to last long.  So let’s go with M*A*S*H and Sports Night.
  3. If your house was on fire what two things aside from family, pets, etc would you grab?
    My photographs and my diploma. 
  4. What are your two most favorite articles of clothing?
    A black shirt that I wear at least once a week to work that is actually a pajama top.  Oh so soft and comfortable.  And another black vneck shirt that I got this past summer.  Again, for comfort purposes.
  5. What two movies that you saw in the past year would you recommend to us?
    I saw Argo a few days ago with a friend.  I have a vague memory of the Iran hostage crisis–yellow ribbons on the trees, a blue candle at Christmas, and watching the inauguration in 3rd grade with the announcement that the hostages had been let go.  I had no clue about the Canadian Six.  Fantastic movie, if hard to watch.  Another that I think was horribly underrated was  The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.  I realize this was almost a year ago and that I have seen a ton of movies since then, but it was the little movie that could for me–and such a fantastic cast.  I can’t believe that Maggie Smith didn’t get a supporting actress nomination for it.
  6. What are your two biggest guilty pleasures?
    At the moment, yarn and tea.  I drink a ton of fluids (like two liters) every day, but I do not like plain water.  I am on a mission in 2013 to clean out the house, and I have SO much tea.  So I’ve been enjoying that.  Only problem is I keep remembering why I haven’t drunk some of this stuff in a long while as it’s either really weak and needs a bigger tea ball for me to steep it at work, or it’s just plain gross.  But still fun.  And yarn.  Lots of yummy, yummy yarn.  And I could name a few other things, but we’ll stop at two!!
