100th Post!

I never (and I mean never) figured when I checked out this new 'blogging' thing last December, that I would become so mightily attached to it as to reach 100 posts! But here we are (and in "we" I mean me and my sil - my only reader *chucklesnortchuckle*!), not even a year later and blogging has truly gotten into my blood it seems. I figure if homeschooling is going to take away my precious scrapbooking, I can at least keep some kind of journal going here online!

But for my 100th post I won't bore you with my Weekly Report (even though we finished a great first week of the new school year!) or drag you through 100 Things About me (I haven't the wit to keep anyone engaged for that long, especially with info such as "I love the color green" and "I was a band geek in high school" or "My little brother is 6ft 5in tall").

Instead, a little movie fun! Sharon at Equip Academy down under tagged me (forever ago - sorry!) with this meme and I haven't had a second to get to it until now! But it seems fun and I LOVE movies so here goes!

1. One movie that made you laugh:
Hitch (Will Smith & Kevin James of King of Queens) - almost wet myself when he had an allergic reaction to shellfish!

2. One movie that made you cry:
Schindler's List - anything that is about true human tragedy really moves me

3. One movie you loved when you were a child:
Superman and Goonies

4. One movie you’ve seen more than once:
Pride & Prejudice (both 2006 version and the A&E) - I could still watch them over and over and over .... I am such a Jane Austin sap!

5. One movie you loved, but were embarrassed to admit it:
Stranger Than Fiction (Will Ferrel) - this is the only Will Ferrel movie that I like and wouldn't you know, he can actually act!

6. One movie you hated:
Anything with Leslie Whatshisname such as Naked Gun -that kind of humor doesn't even crack a smile for me and is worse than boring movies.

7. One movie that scared you:
Hotel Rwanda - about the genocide in Rwanda ... the magnitude of human evil scares the daylights out of me and makes me glad that God doesn't make me all-knowing

8. One movie that bored you:
M. Night Shyamalan's latest The Happening - I usually like his movies but this one was awful ... I mean, killer plants? Come on!

9. One movie that made you happy:
Prize Winner of Defiance Ohio (mom of ten writes little advertising dities to support her family), Amadeus (I love Mozart) and Four Feathers (Heath Ledger does a great job portraying courage and character)

10. One movie that made you miserable:
The Saw - nasty, nasty, movie - I hate horror films but for some reason dh dragged me to this one

11.One movie you weren’t brave enough to see:
The 911 movies that came out a couple years ago - I just don't think I could handle living through those feelings again.

12. One movie character you’ve fallen in love with:
Mr Darcy for absolute sure - what a man, the likes of which don't exist any more (sorry dh - you're wonderful and amazing but you're just in a different league, that's all)

13. The last movie you saw:
Iron Man -this was a great blend of action and humor with a good simple action plot. The techno gadgets were awesome!

14. The next movie you hope to see:
Hancock - anything with Will Smith AND superpowers works for me!

I tag .... anyone who has time on their hands? Haha! Really - just let me know if you post this little meme so I can drop by to see what movies you like!

I loved Hancock when Jeff & I went on a hero movie junket a few weeks ago. We saw Hancock, Prince Caspian and Batman: The Dark Knight. I enjoyed them all, despite them being very different. The Dark Knight made me glad Jeff doesn't read Batman comics anymore. The comics have become a LOT darker in the last decade or so.
Thanks for the heads up about Stranger than Fiction. I might check it out, it sounds quite interesting. And I really like Emma Thompson.
I am glad your week went so well. Really looking forward to a Weekly Report... please?
