1.First line from a movie that pops into your head - Tell 'im he's dreamin'

3.Two TV shows that would make it into your all time top 10 - ABC News; Horrible Histories.

Sarah- I love Arrested Dev. E loves Gilmore Girls. I don't mind it, but the last series or two were kinda lame. ps- Eye vomit= EPIC.

Pedro- It's amazing how often you find yourself tidying or cleaning up the same area. Kids!

Cjed- there's such a thing as too many books?

Deb- A traumatic memory of mine was when in year5 we did a production of the Hiding Place on the last day of school, and I was a soldier. I only had one line "where are the Jews? Where is the secret room?", but I was so nervous I couldn't even rememeber my one line. That aside, it's an amazing story, huh.

Al- I did the same the other day at home: read a bit of the paper while eating a big breaky and drinking a coffee. Life rarely gets better than that.

Soph- Frustrating. And not only have you got wet clothes, but when they do finally dry again, they have that 'strange person on the train' smell.

Karen- I've only watched the first series of MM. I'd love to watch more some time. Never tried West Wing. Everyone raves about it, but I have zero interest in polotics, and can't imagine getting into it. I should have a crack some time though.

Gary- I'd say there's just too much televised weeping at the moment fullstop. Be it weightloss shows, amatuer cooks or amatuer renovators, amatuer dancers or singers, everyone has some sob story to tell ('i'm doing this for my cat Roger who died when I was 6'). My heart is hardening.

George- Ah, good ol' Shawshank. 2.4k? Good job!!

Kim- I KNEW you were going to put a Princess Bride quote! i had my money on the 'you killed my father, prepare to die' one though.

Simone- Sockless? It's notjust the blisters, but the smell as well..

Beth- You know, Mash is one show I just never really 'got'. Maybe I'd appreciate it more as an adult.

Kristina- heh, great quote! What's it from again?

Laetitia- Speaking of tell Him he's dreaming, I wonder if the next generation will even know what the trading post is.. these days it's all ebay.

Well Ben, I am currently reading 2 books, and have another 13 to read, not entirely sure when I will get around to reading them, also it is quite likely that I will acquire more books before i finish the ones I already have.
