18. What’s the best movie that you’ve seen recently?

The only movie i've seen recently is Twilight, and while i enjoyed it overall, i had a difficult time with the female lead. The actress did not do a very good job in my opinion, which distracted from the story. She was not animated enough, and i was not able to believe that she was as in love with the male lead as the story required. Granted, i have not read the book, but i cannot imagine that the portrayal of this character in the book could be so wooden, or else the book series could not be so hugely popular as it is.

19. What’s your favorite book from the past year?

i am going to answer this as my favorite book that i have read in the past year as opposed to my favorite book published in the past year because i rarely am able to read them so soon after release. i have read several really good books this past year, so this is a very hard decision, but the prize is going to Three Bags Full: A Sheep Detective Story by Leonie Swann. i believe it was originally written in German, which makes it all the more impressive to me how all the nuances are there in English. This was such a unique book, written from the perspective of a flock of sheep, and the way the author captured such great characters in the form of sheep is amazing. i was totally able to get into it and believe that these sheep were as intelligent as they were portrayed. i even began to perceive things from their point of view. There were really hilarious parts to the story, touching and dramatic parts, adventure, philosophy, you name it. A great, really enjoyable read.

20. Is there a comfort food from your childhood that you still enjoy?

Yes, Tuna a la King, which is tuna in a seasoned white sauce served steaming hot over buttered toast. Yum!


  1. I don't even like Tuna but that sounds appetising!

  2. I haven't read Twilight nor seen the movie, but I did enjoy your take on the film. Have a great day!

  3. Some good answers. Many thanks for the mention in #8. That book about sheep sounds interesting.
