The Fifth Element
I can't explain why, but I love this movie. I don't remember seeing it in the theater. But, EVERYTIME I see it playing on cable, we stop and watch it. I own a DVD copy, a Blu-ray copy, and I would have it on my iPod if the laptop that syncs it hadn't died.
I find myself quoting it at school. Blaine has caught himself quoting it too. The only reason he watches it is because of me! What a man!
I have long had a fascination with all things sci-fi and fantasy. One of the first books I remember buying, from the Scholastic flyer, was THE WITCH WHO SAVED HALLOWEEN. I was in 2nd grade and I still have the book!
I loved Bewitched and I Dream of Jeannie. I have read Anne McCaffrey books since I was in high school and have every book in her Dragon Riders of Pern Series. I enjoy True Blood and the Sookie Stackhouse books. Paranormal romances are my favorite books to read.
Let's not forget Harry Potter! Kids were reading books before this series, but it seemed like they were ALL reading after this series came out.
There are several other series, both book and television, that I enjoy. What do you enjoy? Do you have any authors to recommend?
We went and visited Blaine's aunt and his parents today. We ate at Colton's. I had blackened grilled tilapia, smashed potatoes, and a roll. Still taking me forever to eat, but I'm doing much better.
