True. Total fan girl. And I probably run a close second to you with the Colin Firth Pride & Prejudice mini-series. Sigh.
Oh, I thought it was only movies. If TV series are in there, then the first and second seasons of Downton would be up to ten already. Probably not the third and definitely not the fourth ... yet.
Kristin, I hate to admit to all of the movies I've seen ten or more times. My DVD collection is large. So here are some that I know I've seen at least ten. Ben Hur. Sense & Sensibility. Pride & Prejudice. Gone With the Wind. An Ideal Husband. The Ten Commandments. Raiders of the Lost Ark. Friendly Persuasion. Toy Story. Tangled (and just about ever animated Disney film). Casablanca. About a Boy. Anna and the King. Bride & Prejudice (a Ballywood update of P&P). Dances with Wolves. Dave. Dirty Dancing. Ever After. Fiddler on the Roof. Field of Dreams. The Help. Okay. I'd better stop. I really don't live in front of the TV, but it begins to sound that way.
It's not cheating. It's being a total Fan Girl. LOL! And believe me, I resisted the urge to reveal too much. Aren't you proud of me?
Agreed. She annoys me. (And I just see that I typed Season for instead of Season Four. Sheesh!)
Kristin, I love listening to Michael Crawford. I have several of his albums. But what a shock it was for me when I realized that the Phantom (stage) was also the geeky store clerk in Hello, Dolly! (movie) Robin
I'm reading The Book Thief now. Using Whispersync to go back and forth between reading on my Kindle and listening on my iPhone. I'm not a huge fan of all the subtitles the author uses, but I am enjoying the story. Loved the trailer! Robin
You're cool in my house, if that's any help. ;-)
LOL! Not the most watched on every TV set. Just on *my* TV. I have loved the early works they've shown recently of Eleanor Parker. Mostly I think of her from The Sound of Music, but she had some wonderful movies when she was so young that I'd never seen before. Loved "The Very Thought of You."
I would LOVE to do it with you, Kristin. TNT is my most watched channel.
He's a fine actor, so I'm hoping he can overcome this character in my mind. A character I really liked, BTW.
The problem for me is that Matthew Rhys will always be the gay brother/lawyer in Brothers & Sisters.
"Prints are for patios." That quote is one I heard in the 90's, and I've never forgotten it. And I have pictures of me in a few awnings, I think.
After three years of posting my words of thanksgiving here in this thanksgiving blog, I have decided to relocate from the hosted service I now use and integrate my blog with my web site at If you currently subscribe to my Thanksgiving Journal, I hope you'll take a moment to visit (currently undergoing a redesign) and subscribe to get posts via email and/or subscribe to the RSS feed (to read in Google Reader, etc.).

LOL! I think Trey boiled that down rather well. Still laughing
Lord, I want to thank You today for the blessing of friends. You have given them to me in abundance. I've laughed so hard with them I thought our sides would explode. I've wept with them when I thought our hearts would break. When You formed us in our mothers' wombs, You made us to be in community with others. I thank You for both that need and for those who fill that need in my life. Bless them, Father. Amen. Continue reading

PS This is an ebook only reissue of an out of print title. I love this book and am so glad to have it available once again to readers.
Thanks for reposting this, Kristin. I appreciate it.
Lord, thank You for crisp fall mornings. The air smells so good. How blessed I am to wrap up in my soft pink robe (thank You for the color pink) with a mug of hot coffee held between my hands, steam rising. Thanks for the tree outside my office window that has changed from green to gold. And I love that sound that Pinky makes when she gets on my desk and stares at the finches at the bird feeder. It's so cute! What made You think of that small detail? Eternal, glorious God of the universe, You created many... Continue reading

I'm going to change up the format of my thanksgiving posts a bit. I'm desiring to learn to better practice the presence of God in the moments of my day, and this is one way I mean to do it. Lord, I'm amazed by Pinky's whiskers. Look how exactly You positioned each one of them. I realize they have a real function, but those white whiskers just look so pretty against her sleek black coat. You didn't have to make them pretty, but You did. And speaking of her coat, her tuxedo markings are perfection. I love that she rolls... Continue reading

Good news. The Colin Firth version isn't 8 hours. It is only a delightful 5 hours and 23 minutes. Extra lovely on the Blu-Ray version. Robin, who is watching it now thanks to your blog post
So glad it was helpful and that you found it.

Today I am thankful to God for: … people who speak kindly into difficult situations and bring peace to others rather than making more trouble. … my good neighbors, especially the one who thinks my dog has a "cheery" bark. … laughter with friends, truly the best medicine for whatever ails me.
