Jules said...

This is too painful...and the funny thing is we correspond with the same people..so to whom shall I send?


Girl With A Pearl Earring? Was that also a movie? About the artist? If so, love the story, and the movie is full of rich color and emotion.

Debbie said...

Gosh, I'm so in trouble here...you're going to make me think. Oh yuck. I have a headache. It's hot. Any rain coming?

LOL..thanks for thinking of me. I think. I'm still thinking of Luke Russert. Can I come to duck pond?

Cool about the Virginia Woolf books! Thank you so much for not tagging me. I'm still down and out as far as my satellite internet goes. Am commenting from work. Don't tell my boss.

Don Mills Diva said...

I tell you this I really don't understand what you are to do here. So when you get around to my side please inform me on how to play this. It looks really fun. So if I don't do it right please laugh.

Eight Things That Make Me Laugh:

1. My best friend when he tries to tell a joke and gets all tongued tied.

2. Watching my Grand kids playing on the beach with the skin board.

3. When my friends on this blog writes something funny and heart filled.

4. Thinking of something that happened some time back where I did some thing really stupid.

5. Watching that movie "Waiting" now that will make you laugh and will make watch how you order food. (no returns)

6. Riding down a roller coaster with a friend that is yelling at the top of his lungs.

7. Halloween and all the costumes the children have.

8. Recalling when my older sis and I use to street skate. (from bar to bar) now that was funny specially after the group left the third place.

THANKS...I will have to really think about this one. It is kind of hard. Let's see if I can get it done in the next day or two. Fair enough?

Keetha said...

I'd like to read all those books on your list.

I think I'm the only person I know who hasn't seen The Lion King. :-)

Oh, about Silky O's - it's still there but alas. I've never been. Not sure why. I should fix that!
