zombie haiku

I've been tagged by Laurel to disclose six unspectacular things about myself. And here they are!

1. I have a mortgage I very much hope to pay off someday.

2. I have devoted hours of my life watching the Lord of the Rings movies largely because of Legolas. I have even considered reading the books, but understand Legolas is not that prominent a character. What can I say? Orlando Bloom makes a great long-haired blond elf, and that is unfortunately about it.

3. “supposing i dreamed this” is one of my favorite ee cummings poems.

4. Now that suicide has pushed David Foster Wallace to the foreground of my consciousness, I really want to read him. Like millions of other people probably. Except I probably will read him.

5. We just traded our used used Volvo (plus cash) for a new used Volvo. When I said to my husband that I would have prefered to shell out the money for something more exciting, he said “Sometimes I don’t understand you.” I’m sure this is playing out in countless used car lots.

6. I really do have more foreign policy experience than Sarah Palin.

I'm always guaranteed a giggle when I drop by here!

Legolas is worth your time.

Myself, I'm more of a Aragorn fan.

Laura said...

Ah, Legolas. I'm right there with you. But it's the used Volvos that made me laugh. I grew up with used Volvos - the boxy ones. yup. Good times.

I always buy used cars.

I thought Orlando Bloom was hot when I saw him as an elf. When I saw him as a human, I wasn't very impressed.

SarahJane said...

i also figure Legolas was worth the time, up to now anyway. The attraction has been very revealing - to me. About me. And now about L, V, and C. I saw O.Bloom in other movies and was left untouched.
My sister is an Aragorn type, too. It's always worked out with us, man-wise. hee.

Thanks for thinking of me, Sarah, but I have to pass. The beginning of the semester and all.
