  1. Great meme Diane. I didn't picture you as a hard rocker! lol

    This is a fun meme so thanks for the tag...I will get it posted later this week.

  2. Enjoyed reading your replies. When Harry Met Sally still makes me laugh everytime I think about the movie.

  3. Fun to learn more about you, Diane! I'm surprised you're into hard and progressive rock--and it's fun to be surprised about people. :)

    I covet your Bambi copy....

    Mystery Writing is Murder

  4. Great meme!

    I left you an award over on my page today: Splash!

  5. Oh man! You tagged me? Now I'm going to have to rack my brains trying to figure out my favourite stuff. I had making decisions like that.

    So what board games do you like? I love Cluedo myself.


  6. We have several things in common, but original copy of Bambi? Wow. And I'm not a big fan of "bored" games - lol. But lots of the other stuff, especially music.

    The Old Silly

  7. We play a lot of trivia board games, plus some standards.

    Thanks everyone - back from Oregon, but will be on the road a lot the next week, so will do my best to catch up!

  8. Great Meme and great answers! I love learning more about you. I'll try to post mine on Thursday or Friday.

    Glad you listed the Crow as one of your favorites. I worked on it. It was a sad and troubled set to work on but the movie turned out so well. Brandon Lee was a doll, still miss him!

    Now Legend is one of my faves as well, few people know that everything you see in that film was made, even the forest!! They don't make movies like that anymore.

  9. Oh wow, Chris! The Crow is such an amazing movie and I think it's strength unfortunately comes from the fact that Brandon died making the film. So tragic!

    And they build the forest for Legend twice, as it burned down the first time!

    I'm a rocker at heart!!!
