A few of my (second) favorite things

Fulfilling another journal assignment...

2nd favorite movie:  I find it much tougher to choose my second favourite (that's my second favorite way to spell "favorite" by the way) movie than my all time favorite (Pulp Fiction), but I have to go with "A Fish Called Wanda."  No movie has ever made me laugh harder and I have quoted the line from Jaime Lee Curtis, "calling you stupid is an insult to stupid people!", many, many times.

2nd favorite book:  "A Widow for One Year" by John Irving.  I must have tried to read this book ten times before I made it through fifty pages, but once I did, I couldn't put it down.  This is also the only book that I ever finished reading in a cemetery.  (My all time favorite book is Hemingway's "The Sun Also Rises.")

2nd favorite CD:  REM's "Automatic for the People"  Hard to walk in dignity with throwup on your shoes (when's John Kerry going to break out "Ignoreland"?)

2nd favorite teacher:  Mr. Wolf, both sixth and seventh grade math.  Not only a great math teacher, but one of the funniest people I ever met.

2nd favorite ice cream flavor:  Edy's Girl Scout Samoan.  It would be #1 by far if it were available year round.  Some day I going to buy a freezer and store the hundreds of cartons of this stuff that I'll by the first day it's available each February.

2nd favorite sports team:  There's the Cubs and everyone else...obviously, but if forced to choose a specific second team for now I'd say Iowa Hawkeye football.  If the Chicago Blackhawks cared about winning I'd say them instead. 

2nd favorite comfort food:  I don't really eat any type of food for comfort, so I'll change the rules and say that my second favorite food is chicken.

2nd favorite celebrity crush:  Another toughie.  Debra Winger is #1, and no one else compares.  Jeez,this is tougher than I thought.  I don't know, Angie Dickinson?  "Police Woman" rocked!  Seriously, I guess I'll go with Julianne Moore.

2nd favorite cartoon character:  Yosemite Sam.  Never fails to crack me up.  "OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHH ya varmit!"

2nd favorite way to relax:  Read.  Doesn't matter what-the paper, book, magazine, textbook, instructions on how to assemblethat gas grill that's been in the garage for ten years...
