Oh my, we could hang. :)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Veronica Mars. I was that idiot begging everyone I know to watch it...please. I didn't get anyone hooked in time, but I have loaned out my DVDs often enough to make people feel guilty for ignoring me.

You also picked 4 movies I I'll have to think of something else when I do my version. If I can pull myself away from endless recipes.

Hi, I found your blog via Goddess in Progress..I just had to comment on your meme.

I adore the Colin Firth P&P version too much, its a bit unhealthy. And I am such a huge fan of Veronica Mars, I even succeeded in turning my brother and mom into fans! Too bad it was the 3rd season by that point.
