Still alive + List! + Entertain me!
1. I'm still not dead!

2. I'm also still meaning to post the pictures I took of the London Eye when I was there with Kitty. I will. I promise. Soon...

3. Work today sucked. How come all the idiots with the dumb questions turn upon my shift? Today's prize-winning idiot walked all the way round our (very small) store and then came up to ask me if we sell Swing Tennis sets. For those of you not in the know, that's a 6ft tall metal pole attached to a tennis ball by a long piece of string. Hardly something we'd keep under the counter out of sight. *headdesk* The answer, btw, was a very polite "...No."

4. I am currently eating frozen raspberries. Yum!

Now, on to the 'entertain me' portion of the post. I have spent the last couple of days pondering on what my favourite characters would list as their top 5 (or 3 or 7 or 20 etc) movies. (Yes, I have been that bored.) Anyway, I want to know what you think John Sheppard would list, or Rodney McKay, or Xander, or Spike, or The Mayor, or Lorne, etc etc.

This is open to any character in any fandom! You can justify your choices - or not. Think Xander's #3 favourite movie is Y Tu Mama Tambien but don't want to say why? Go right ahead!

I did write up a list of Xander's five favourite movies but then I decided that, hey, expanded to twenty, with Xander-voiced justification (and maybe an aside or two from Spike), this would be perfect for one of my posting days at spring_with_xan, so stay tuned for more on this subject soon! Then I started on a Rodney McKay list and it got ficcy, so... I have no lists to share right now. Give me yours instead!

My top 5 movies Xander thought looking at a certain Bleached Blonde Menace who he loved. So with pen and paper in hand he began to write.

1) Star Wars. I always felt there was more to Hans Solo/Luke Skywalker than was shown.

2) Dracula Enough said *shivers*

3) Odd Couple You can't get any odder than us. A Vampire and a Human who helps the Slayer.

4) Jack the Ripper I can see it now Spike and Drusilla wandering around White Chapel killing all those women.

5) Troy All those guys with hardly anything on is reall so hot.

I give him the list as he reads it I notice how hard he is getting and look at him and smile. "Your turn." I tell him. He groans and looks at me and pounces.

Darkhavens I hope this got your imagination going.

Star Wars is a classic - no geek or sci-fi fan could miss that off their list. *g*

I'm not so sure about Dracula. Been there, done that, go the bug-eating memories. I can't imagine he'd want to relive those days. ;)

Thanks for commenting!

It suddenly occured to me how funny it would be if Xander's list included, "That movie from the 90's about the girl who fought demons and vamps and stuff...what was that called?"

Hee! Bunny? Biffy? What was it called? *g*

Since Andrew insisted on initiating him on the mysteries of the dvd, Giles has watched more movies than he has in years. He's seen some old favorites and found some new good ones.

1. He likes things with action, like "The Great Escape" and "The Heroes of Telemark" or the Bourne things.

2. He'll only watch the Bond movies with Connery. (It drives Andrew wild).

3. He's always had a thing for Julie Christie. He'll watch her in almost anything.

4. Here's his dark secret: He likes musicals. "Gigi" and "Singing in the Rain" are his favorites. He even made it halfway through "The Sound of Music" before he gave up.

5. He likes cowboy movies as long as they don't have John Wayne in them. He always struck Giles as a poseur.

6. Giles won't watch anything set in a submarine.

Ha! I bet he knows all the words to "West Side Story", that old romantic. *g*

#6 intrigues me. *pokes Giles's psyche* :P

Thanks for playing!

He does. And he does a wicked version of "Tonight" on the guitar. He jazzes it up a bit. 8 ]
