Fun game! I like this one. I'll post my list when I'm done with my Top 12 lists for this week.

I love Monty Python! And Eddie Izzard. You've got great taste. :-)

You might be my evil twin, separated at birth.

However, I am sorry to inform you that I have dibs on John Cusak.

Summer, Highland Falls (on Turnstiles) is one of my all time favorite songs.

Have you ever read "A Ring of Endless Light" or any of the Austin Family books by Madeline L'Engle?

Vivian said...

How fun. You definitely sound like someone to know.

J said...

I will play cool deal !

Major Bedhead said...

Hah, Kassie, how wrong you are. He's mine! All mine!

I know I read A Swiftly Tilting Planet by Madeline L'Engle, but I can't remember it. I need to get the rest of those books - my daughter is 11 and I pretend these are all for her, but in reality, I'm usually the one sitting there with my nose buried.

vivian & j - I don't know how I missed your blogs up til now, but I'm going to go read them. My blog list is getting HUGE!

Sorry girls, I called John Cusak a long time ago. BTW, The Fountainhead is one of my very favorite books.

I don't know but there might be a lot of us who have dibs on John Cusack! Remember him from "Sixteen Candles"? With those deadsets on? Too funny!
