I'm currently living in Michigan, grew up in North Canton, OH. I'm a voracious reader-I usually have book or a magazine nearby. Not working at the moment, enjoying my last months of freedom before I start nursing school and a real grown up life. Or at least that's what they tell me I'll be doing, I'm not sure they know me very well.
I Am A:
Books And Authors I Like:
Really far too many to mention them all. I've managed to re-read The Stand and It by Stephen King more times than I can count and A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L'Engle. Started out with Alfred Hitchcock and The Three Investigators-loved the Mystery of the Moaning Cave!
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
As far as movies go, I wouldn't even know where to begin. I can tell you what I don't like-romance, the current gorefest horror films and period movies. Otherwise, I'm pretty open-scifi, horror (even cheesy B horror), thriller, mystery, some drama, comedy. I did grow up in the Star Wars era so the original three are big favorites, along with A Christmas Story and Christopher Guest films.
I've pretty much given up on standard network television, although I do watch Survivor, Deal or No Deal, and occasionally Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?. I also regularly watch Dirty Jobs, Mythbusters, MASH (on TVLand), Rome, Deadwood, The Sopranos, A&E, History's Mysteries, and re-runs of Star Trek:TNG.
Greetings from Connemara! Always good to meet someone with the same addiction. Can't pass a bookstore without being lured inside where I lose all sense of time. Now if bookstores served good red wine ... ah!
I've missed you! Hope that you've been well. What's on tap, movie-wise?
I'm trying an experiment and trying to rely on my local library for DVDs. On hold for me right now are EL MARIACHI, RAISING VICTOR VARGAS, REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE, and CIDER HOUSE RULES (that one is for research).
Norby, Thanks for commenting on my page...I didn't get your email, though. Realized I had left it incorrectly below. Should be firstname.lastname@example.org.
(Left out the "a" ...) So sorry, hope to hear from you soon.
Thanks for the invite. Send me your address via private mail at email@example.com and I'll get you a free copy of my recent thriller Death Game from Amazon. (Got credit there to use up!) Anyone who likes Stephen King AND A Wrinkle in Time will love my book. Besides, I'd like your opin/comments after you read. I'm working on the next in series and soliciting reviews from heavy duty READERS.
