THREE Things about me you might not know…
…. I love classic movies with actors/actresses like Cary Grant (North by Northwest, Notorious, Operation Petticoat, Father Goose, etc.), Katharine Hepburn (Bringing Up Baby, The Philadelphia Story, The African Queen, The Lion in Winter, and most films with Spencer Tracy too), Humphrey Bogart (The Maltese Falcon, Sabrina), John Wayne (almost all his westerns, of course, including True Grit and Rooster Cogburn!), Myrna Loy (Cheaper by the Dozen, The Thin Man, Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House), Gene Tierney (Laura, The Ghost & Mrs. Muir), Jack Lemmon and Peter Falk (many of their movies), plus Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly and Audrey Hepburn (ALL of their movies)! I’m sure I’m missing some.
… I love cartoon strips, especially Peanuts, Calvin & Hobbes, Pickles, LuAnn, Zits, For Better or Worse, Sherman’s Lagoon, Rubes, The Far Side, The Argyle Sweater and the crocs in Pearls Before Swine. I’ve seen some new strips and feel sad that the artwork is really terrible. I know a strip starting out may not look the greatest, but I believe standards are falling.
… I love cookies. LOOOOVE cookies!! My favorite present would be a huge box of a variety — as long as they’re crunchy and not too sweet. My favorites include shortbread, peanut butter, windmill, chocolate pixies, Spritz, Linzer, thumbprints, Russian teacakes, pecan tarts and many many others. Do I eat cookies every day? No, because once I start I can’t stop. Oh, Girl Scout Thin Mints — j’adore!
