I have to break it to you. Are you sitting down? A nice cuppa to hand?
I can NOT do the music/movie memes. I just can't. I hang my head in shame. I am a bad, bad blogger. I've been tagged by the best, coolest bloggers in blogland, and while DaisyWinifred got to me first (did Wales start this thing? Wales has a lot to answer for), and I semi-answered in her comments, I just can't.
I don't know what my block is, but it's like a tic. I look at the questions, and my nose starts to twitch. I sneeze. I am reminded of the moment on a date where the person sitting across from you at the table asks, "So, what's your favorite book?" and your mind not only forgets every book you've ever read, but you understand that you could never date, let alone have sex with, a person who believes that it's acceptable to have only one Favorite Book. (Although, if held dangling over a cliff by a very mean person, I would have to answer The Light Princess by George MacDonald, but once he lifted me back up to the top, I'd politely explain while dusting myself off that such false constraints only limit one as a creative human being. Like having only one favorite ice cream flavor. Yegads. The horror.)
Man, I just glazed off and stared into space, trying to do it again. I can't. My memory precludes me from actually remembering what movies I've seen or music I've heard lately. I saw The Princess Bride the other night, for the bajillionteenth time. And I'm listening to Keren Ann and Iron & Wine pretty much constantly lately.
Does that count? My beloved taggers (and you are), please forgive your Rachael of Very Little Brain. And come watch a movie with me.
