Indeed, as Simon states below, Rafael tagged us. Blog Memes are a bit like chain letters, really, so given that just about everyone I could tag has already been tagged anyway, the chain will not go on from here, although it will certainly go on from somewhere else. As Simon says, there is pleasure in reading back through the chain, if only to marvel at our differences.

  • Can I do it if I haven't been tagged...?! :)

  • Okay, I've amended the post to tag ya. But remember: the things they say in chain letters aren't true

  • Yes, I only like rom-coms. I hate stuff that has an all-male cast and lots of explosions and shooting.

  • Bless. Your movie choices are so soppy.

  • Bit of a Nic Cage fan are you...? He pops up a lot of your film list!

    And "Beatles for Sale"?! brilliant: a much under-rated album.

  • 1. I don't know how my reply to Marie's comment ended up ahead of it in the list. Bizarro,

    2. Yes, Lisa, I suppose I must be! What would you have thought if I'd included Peggy Sue Got Married? Hee hee!
