Joel's meme is spreading liking a Texas wildfire . . . or something that you doctor with a cream that the pharmacist keeps in a plain brown wrapper and hides under the counter. Moving on . . .
Okay, memes are lists of questions that someone posts on their blog with their own answers and at the end "tag" others do the same. This particular meme was begun by Fun Joel and made its way to me via a tag from Todd. Yay! I've been noticed.
Earliest film related memory:
My grandmother and aunt were fanatical Elvis fans. I remember being about five years old at a drive-in with them watching A Change of Habit starring Elvis Presley and Mary Tyler Moore. It was a terrifying departure from Elvis' other films and I have since not been able to hear the name Julio (the nun raping villain) without cringing.
TWO favorite lines from movies:
"I don't gotta do nothin' but stay black and die!"
- Lean on Me
"Roses are red, violets are blue, I'm a schizophrenic... and so am I!"
- What About Bob?
