We have many things in common. I think we'd be great friends. Thanks for sharing your 25 things.

Cindy said...

Hey, you're welcome. I loved the list. And oooo, Colin Firth *giggle*. Yeah, I'm a hopeless romantic, too. I think, however, I prefer Jane Eyre over Wuthering Heights. Thanks for sharing!

Lotus...you live very close to me!
:-)

Cindy...I thought of more stuff when I was trying to go to sleep. LOL I love Wuthering Heights! Read it again only to look at the poetic quality of her prose. I find it brilliant! ;-)

We have much in common, too! I used to play the clarinet. I also love musical theater. I also love to cook and sample all different types of cuisine. I like Coldplay. I agree that Colin Firth is one of the sexiest men to ever live. He is Mr. Darcy! And yes, I named my daughter Darcy. I don't drink, so the wine is out, sorry. I love British Literature and Shakespeare!
I am also a HOPELESS romantic. I always have a story to tell. I love to hang out with my girlfriends and watch chick flicks, and I was also born in the wrong time period, hehe. I am addicted to blgs. I haven't seen Bridget Jones's Diary. Gasp! I like Wuthering Heights. And I am always dramatic!!!

See. We have a lot in common. I'm sure there's more. :)

T. Anne said...

Lucky you to have three sisters! & I too have bee known to overuse the exclamation point! ;)

Litgirl01 said...

T. Anne...how about elipses? Thank God there is someone else who partakes in comma abuse. Makes me feel better. he he ;-)

Love the list!! What part of Italy did you live in? Florence is my favorite European city (not counting London).

Litgirl01 said...

I lived in Florence, Italy for almost a year! I studied over there with Florida State University. It was one of the best times of my life. I absolutely LOVE London too. :-) Florence has such a big part of my heart though.

T. Anne said...

LOL! If it were up to me run on sentences would be the norm, separated by commas of course!

That's a great list. I love # 25. I totally get it. I'm there with ya, but have been trying to hold back lately. I find tying my hands behind my back and typing with my nose to be helpful. ;)

I wonder why you and Lady Glamis don't play the clarinet anymore.

And have you ever seen a Chris Martin interview? Dud is hilarious. And has anyone but me seen the PBS documentary with G Paltrow in which she tours Spain eating? Love it.

Anita said...

Hah! Meant "Dude" is hilarious...not "Dud" (wouldn't want Chris to see this and think I think he's a Dud).
