Picture This

...a rustic hunting lodge.  My latest kill roasting on the fire...

Lately I have not been on Facebook very much.  I mean, I look but I have very little to say.  I don't know why this is, but since I haven't said much there, I should probably say more here, just to keep the universe on kilter.  This is kind of a modgey podgey post of things that I have been liking lately, with a headline of what I would have said on Facebook about it.  In other words, here are "The Facebook Posts That Might Have Been."

I want to eat these every day.

Tomatoes?  Basil?  Cheese?  I mean, if you stuck mushrooms on these babies (plus four more kinds of cheese) it'd be all my favorite eats on one stick!  

I want to listen to this every day.
Actually, I pretty much DO listen to this every day and it never gets old.  I might even have to concede now that I like it better than Viva la Vida--and I like Viva a lot.  (Parachutes is still holding steady at #1)

I want to read this...often.

I recently finished reading this for the second time (the first time was at least 10 years ago) and I just loved it.  Loved it!  I wanted to roll around on the floor with it clutched in my hands.  Instead I wrote a review on Goodreads, but maybe I'll still do the rolling on the floor thing later.

I want to watch this soon!
Maybe I'm partial because it's the first adaptation I ever saw (and was my first exposure to the story), but it's still my very favorite.  It's so gloomy and dreary and full of moors.  Plus, you know, it has the best movie kiss ever.  (Ever!)  

I want to see this again.
Such a lovely, classy movie!  I was completely surprised how much I enjoyed it, and it's the first movie in a long time that has me eagerly anticipating a second viewing.  I must concede that the Oscars actually got it all right (as far as this movie goes anyway...).  AND it wasn't even pretentious!  Which is what I expected...

Now that this is all said and done, I can get back to blogging about the really exciting things going on.  Like TRON!  Or as I like to say it, TRONNNNNNNNNNN.


  1. I would like to see you rolling on the floor with Wuthering Heights clutched in your hands. Or your claws, as the case may be (for some reason, Other Mother comes to mind with this image).

  2. I will take your recommendation of the Artist and go watch it as soon as I get the opportunity. All those things look good and fun, and those skewers looks like a delicious snack! And I don't even prefer tomatoes, but it still looks very tempting!

    Wuthering Heights is one of my favorite books too. i have seen about three versions of the book. I like them all. It teaches morality and good behavior is such a good thing and concurs all.

  4. One would think that, given my love of Villette and Jane Eyre, I would adore Wuthering Heights. Yet Wuthering Heights leaves me cold. Let's blame it on the fact that I don't think I've seen the movie version you just recommended in its entirety. I've only seen the best.kiss.ever scene, which I'll admit was pretty good. I forsee a British Sunday making up for this oversight in the very near future.

  5. One of these days I'm gonna read that book again. Every time we watch a movie version it's like the first time, I forget it every time for some reason!

  6. Also: The Artist! Why isn't it on DVD yet?!?
