A Reminder

Just a reminder to check out The Boyfriend's blog, The Frugal Bostonian. If you go over there today, you will find the first post from your old pal me, giving away the secret to one of my famous barbecue sauces.

You know you want it!

(I have been told by The Boyfriend that I am not allowed to give away the recipe for my Coke sauce or my Sweet Caroline mustard sauce. Apparently, those are trade secrets. *Shrug*)


Also, I have been reading books lately, but haven't necessarily felt like blogging, partly because I've finished the Cannonball Read and prefer to just READ the books. I've just started Robert Leckie'sStrong Men Armed, which is his non-biographical book about the Pacific theater of WW2. So far it's pretty good. I've also read some trashy books and re-read some old favorites. I've also read several new ones that I'm sure I'll get around to blogging on eventually.

A Quick List

In honor of the long weekend, here is a list of ten movies I am utterly unable to resist if I come across them on television. If I'm looking at the guide or flipping through the channels, and I see one of these I have to stop and watch, no matter how far into the film it happens to be. (These are all movies I do not own on DVD.) In no particular order:

1. Mama Mia!
2. The Replacements
3. The Rock
4. The Legend of Billie Jean
5. The Princess Bride
6. Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark
7. Swiss Family Robinson
8. Annie
9. Die Hard
10. Steel Magnolias

Do any of you have movies that you just can't resist when you're flipping around on a drizzly Sunday afternoon?
