Favorite Fridays!

Neverwhere! Neil Gaiman introduces us to the world of Richard Mayhew and teaches us that no good deed goes unpunished! I personally have, as many of you are realize, an on going borderline obsessive love affair with the City of London. And Gaiman has expanded my vision and introduced a whole new layer of that most glorious city...the underground! And not just the Mind the Gap tube stations but all of it the tunnels of the old and forgotten parts of the city! Neverwhere is an amazing journey through the unknown and fantastical...definitely Fairy Tale worthy! I loved the characters of Door, Hunter, the marquis de Carabas, and Richard. It's a book you can't put down, it makes you wonder, it was Amazing! The more I read of Gaiman the harder it is to choose a favorite!

...note he does drop the f-bomb enough for me to add a little...ahem...here!

My Sassy Girl! To be honest I only picked it up from the library because of the title! It just sounded like a movie that I would like…and it was! Seriously super cute movie about a super nice guy a pretty crazy girl…the cover says…two imperfect people who might be perfect for each other! Plus, they have a slap game!

Favorite Quotes:
"We have to see how the story ends.”—Jordan
“As for the question of destiny all I know is that even when destiny really wants to accomplish something, it can’t do it alone. You still have to go to that restaurant. You still have to show up. You still have to build a bridge to the one you love.”—Charlie Bellow
“On the reasons to stop seeing her side we have: One, on going physical danger. Two, high likely-hood of a broken heart. Three, uh career sabotage. Four, she is clinically insane. Five, she seems to enjoy my pain. Six, fourteen piece matched set of Louis Vuitton emotional baggage. Seven, I haven’t even kissed her yet, for God’s sakes. Uh, eight, she’s ruining my life.”
“And the reasons to keep seeing her?”
“I’m in love with her.”—Charlie Bellow and Leo

Pink Martini! Everyone has heard...and if you haven't you poor deprived person seriously you need some culture in your life!...Doris Day's version of Que Sera Sera...she sings it in Alfred Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew to Little with Jimmy Stuart...that was the only version I can remember ever hearing until I heard this one...and I loved it. It has a strange broken carnival hint to it. So listen and enjoy!...note the video part is interesting not one I would have chosen but the song is complete!
