Top Five Revisited. Again. Once More. Redundant.

Faithful Readers, I saw a picture of John Cusack this morning on someone’s desktop. After a wistful sigh, I remembered “High Fidelity.” And the Top Five bit that I was convinced I had invented. And the fact that we haven’t played since October.

Oh, it’s on.
Six Until Me proudly presents …

Top Five.

Nicole - Congratulations on the new nephew!!!

Jaime - I love Dave Barry. He's a funny bastard. The fact that he has an Auxilary Back Up Dog named Zippy kills me. Kills me.

Mr. Dee - A trip to my heart? It requires cheap jewelery. And bacon bits. And potentially some Xanax (it could be a long flight).

Jen - I have never watched Grey's Anatomy, yet I've heard so much about it. I must be seriously missing out, no?

George - Did you shake your body down to the ground or what?

Melissa - Good luck on your job interview!!!

Julia - Boston Dirt Dogs, baby. I'm sure you're a member.

Top Five Reasons You’re Grinning Today

1) It's after 5pm, and Joseph has been in the low to mid 100s since he went to bed last night. This almost never happens.

And yes, that would be a huge grin...

2) The sun was shining and it was in the 50s almost the entire day-- thus, my daughter and I spent a good deal of today OUTSIDE playing (as opposed to INSIDE spring cleaning).

Oh Yeah!

3) Our tax man is coming over tonight... as a result, I've been hearing The Beatles singing in my head-- "yeah I'm the taxmaaan."

All. Day.

4) About 20 minutes ago-- just before going outside -- my son said, "Mom, I want to go look at my new cleats. Hey, do you want to look at them with me?"

And so for several minutes we sat together admiring his new cleats, and the box they came in.

(BTW, they're Reeboks and in the box is a picture of Curt Schilling's bloodied ankle over a cleat identical to Joseph's... my boy is in awe)

5) Just when I thought I didn't have a fifth thing, Evan calls me to our back window, "Mommy, there's bunnies in the back yard!"

And she's right.

Man, I love spring :D

Top Five Uses for Bacon Bits

I must say, not a fan of the bacon bits.

Top Five Places You Want to Travel To

1) Paris
2) Italy (Florence and Venice)
3) Portugal again
4) New Zealand
5) London again

Top Five Guilty Pleasures

1) The darkest of chocolate

2) Fluffer Nutters (just hate to see the kids eat 'em alone)

3) A long hot bath-- longer than you thought possible (though an all-too-brief shower is all I ever seem to have time for... sigh)

4) Reality TV (only two shows-- American Idol and Survivor)-- and sadly, aside from the occasional Letterman, about the only TV I watch these days.

5) And a drumroll please... my upcoming long weekend in Chicago with two of my sisters.

The first time I'll be away from my kids overnight.



Oh, and Jamie-- I'll have to check out Rick Mercer's site. Ryan and I were huge fans of The Industry back when PBS broadcast it here in the states. (I think it was called Made in Canada up your way)

Mercer is a genius.
