TGIF - A Fun New Little Game

Happy Friday, Ladies - TGIF, seriously! It has been one humdinger of a week and I am beyond thrilled that the work week is coming to an end! The in-laws are coming in town tonight for a short visit and then I plan on some whiskey drinkin' and derby watchin' tomorrow!

Today I am going to play along with Lauren over at the little things {a lovely new blog - well new to me, anyway - I have come to adore} and her "fill in the blank friday".

This week is the movie edition - and I am a movie lover, I could seriously pick about 5 answers for each one, but I did my best - so here goes...

1. My absolute favorite movie of all time is Okay I have several and really can’t pick just one so here is my list – romance, “The Notebook” {no explanation needed} – comedy, I am going to have to 2nd Lauren, “Anchorman” is flat out hysterical {sadly, I can quote the entire movie} - drama/action, “The Departed”, I love love love Scorsese {Casino, Gangs of New York, Goodfellas - love him!} and this movie just freakin rocks.

2. My favorite movie as a child was "Troop Beverly Hills” I was obsessed with this movie. When it comes on I still watch it and can sing the Cookie Time song…I am singing it as we speak….my brother loathes and I mean loathes this movie thanks to me! :)

3. The best movie quote ever is Okay, I really don’t know if I can top Lauren’s - "The Notebook" when Noah says, "So it's not gonna be easy. It's gonna be really hard. We're gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever,you and me, everyday” , I mean that is just perfect.......beautiful and perfect.

But I do find myself quoting “Christmas Vacation” year round, so here goes “Hey! If any of you are looking for any last-minute gift ideas for me, I have one. I'd like Frank Shirley, my boss, right here tonight. I want him brought from his happy holiday slumber over there on Melody Lane with all the other rich people and I want him brought right here, with a big ribbon on his head, and I want to look him straight in the eye and I want to tell him what a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey shit he is! Hallelujah! Holy shit! Where's the Tylenol?"

4. My favorite actress is Julia Roberts, I have a lot I love, but she is just fabulous! I just think we would be bffs. :)  Also My favorite actor is Tom Hanks, he is just awesome. In everything. Awesome.

5. The movie I could watch over and over is “Steel Magnolias” I grew up watching this movie with my mom and my aunt. I know every word and I know how it is going to end, and I cry every single time - but yet, I continue to watch it every time it is on…… it’s like “Beaches” or “Marley and Me” - the hubs comes up and ask if I'm crying, I sniffle a big "noooo" he laughs - why do I do this to myself?!?!??!

6. My favorite movie genre is I am going to go with romance, whether it be a comedy or drama – I am just a sucker for a good ole' love a good love story!!

7. A movie I'd like to watch this weekend is I really want to see “Remember Me” but sadly I don't this it is out we will go with "It's Complicated"

So there you have it, I have sooooo many other faves -but I won't bore you! You can check out Lauren's blog and play along and link up!

Happy Weekend to all of you lovely ladies!!
{and men if you are out there:)}
