1) When you went trick or treating as a kid, what was one candy you hated to get?
Oooof, candy corn, ick! Some people would also give you well-intentioned cookies which mom would make you throw away, so that was a loser, ditto apples. Getting change was nice, best of all snickers!
2) What is your middle name? EDWARD! Therefore, just like the late senator of Massachusetts, Edward Kennedy, the nickname is Teddy, not to be confused with a bear...or Theodore R. either... I usually use my middle name too because my first and last are so short

3) What book or movie have you read/seen lately that you would recommend? MOVIE: Blue Jasmine, wicked good, and reread a recent collection of Alice Munro's short stories. She won the Nobel for a reason!

4) If you could speak another language fluently, which would you choose? Well, Spanish!

5) Who is your favorite cartoon character? Sidestepping the issue: SNOOPY! He is a comic, of course...

When you went trick or treating as a kid, what was one candy you hated to get?
Australia never had Halloween as an occasion when I were a lass so this is a moot question *however* I loathed black jelly sweets/lollies/candies like black jellybeans or black cats or black wine gums. Bleaurgh! TG my mama likes those so we just used to hand them straight over.

2) What is your middle name? A

3) What book or movie have you read/seen lately that you would recommend? I live in the back of beyond, I don't get to the movies much.

4) If you could speak another language fluently, which would you choose? Italian. Two years of Italian at college and the only thing I can remember is "Posso puo parlare lentamente." (Please speak more slowly).

5) Who is your favorite cartoon character? Comic book character? Hagar the Horrible or The Wizard of Id. No! It has to be Dog from Footrot Flats.

Candy corn and tootsie rolls.

2) What is your middle name.
Megan

3) What book or movie have you read/seen lately that you would recommend?
We don't see many movies and I tend toward reading a lot of intellectual trash (reasonably well written mysteries) that I tend to only recommend to people I already know read the same kind of stuff. That said, DH and I were pleasantly surprised by how good "Mud"was when saw it a while back.

4) If you could speak another language fluently, which would you choose?
Spanish for practicality, Welsh for interest.

I'm not a cartoon person. Comics I like though and probably my most loved is Calvin from Calvin and Hobbs.

1) When you went trick or treating as a kid, what was one candy you hated to get?

Anything with peanuts or peanut butter. I like peanut butter, just not with chocolate. I'm weird, I know.

2) What is your middle name?

Lynn. I was given that name in honor of Lyndhurst, NJ where my parents both grew up, 15 years apart. It's not a pretty place, but I wish they had used the whole town name, I might have kept it. I did exactly what IrishJenn did above.

3) What book or movie have you read/seen lately that you would recommend?

I'm drawing a blank on movies I'd recommend. I'm trying to finish <u>Five Days</u> for this weekend. It's jaw dropping. I want to see Monuments Men, and I would recommend the more serious book it is modeled on <u>The Venus Fixers </u>

4) If you could speak another language fluently, which would you choose?

French. I studied it for 10 years, but never did the semester abroad, and so never attained fluency. It's old fashioned, but I still love it.

5) Who is your favorite cartoon character?

I was never big into cartoons, but although I am too old to have been her, Daria could have been my life in high school - Smart, sardonic, and surrounded by idiots.

1) When you went trick or treating as a kid, what was one candy you hated to get?
Those chewy peanut butter "kisses."

2) What is your middle name?

3) What book or movie have you read/seen lately that you would recommend?
I read "Me Before You" a few weeks ago and the characters are still with me. I liked it so much that I sent it to my sister and niece.

4) If you could speak another language fluently, which would you choose?
Well, Spanish would be more practical, but I would love to be fluent in French.

5) Who is your favorite cartoon character?
Wonder Woman, but I also love Marvin the Martian.

1. Hate candy? I don't understand the question.
2. Lillian, after my godmother.
3. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, amazing writer, and a personal hero of mine.
4. French more fluently, and Russian, which I can puzzle out bits of since I know the cyrillic alphabet. Sochi got me going again.
5. Pinky, from Pinky and the Brain, though I like all the Animaniacs. They are what cartoons are supposed to be, entertainment, not moral lessons told by marketaable characters. Just like the old Warner Bros. cartoons used to be.

1) When you went trick or treating as a kid, what was one candy you hated to get? Licorice in any form...even those red ropy things. Blargh.

2) What is your middle name? Ellen...same as my lovely little grandma

3) What book or movie have you read/seen lately that you would recommend? Book? Movie? Spare time? I'm in my car so much these days that I really should get books on tape/cd but I'd probably drive off the road.

4) If you could speak another language fluently, which would you choose? I desperately want to be able to speak Italian but I desperately NEED to be able to speak Spanish. I can't do either except to order food and be somewhat polite.

5) Who is your favorite cartoon character? Snoopy!

1) When you went trick or treating as a kid, what was one candy you hated to get? MaryJanes...I didn't care for those at all, which is hysterical, since peanut butter & molasses salt water taffy is one of my all time favorite candies. Go figure!

2) What is your middle name? The one I was born with is now hand in hand with my maiden name as my middle name, since I have a new last name :-) Or technically, as the Social Security Office put it, it's now ES. LOL!

March 5, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJanet

1) When you went trick or treating as a kid, what was one candy you hated to get?

Necco Wafers. Or black licorice.

2) What is your middle name?

L. That's all I'm typing because that's all I ever use. I only use the legal word when I legally have to. I don't like it very much but it's too much trouble to change it legally. Legally speaking, of course.

3) What book or movie have you read/seen lately that you would recommend?

I haven't. The last book I sat down and read sucked and has already been donated. I have a couple new ones but no time and brain power. The last movie I saw was the second JJ Abrams Star Trek, and that was nearly a year ago.

4) If you could speak another language fluently, which would you choose?

Just one? Either Spanish or Italian. Although I wouldn't mind if my French got better (it's barely passable).

5) Who is your favorite cartoon character?

Bambi. Although I also love Duchess from "The Aristocats" and Jigglypuff and Mighty Mouse and a whole host of Japanese Anime characters that most people haven't heard of. I love animation.

1) When you went trick or treating as a kid, what was one candy you hated to get?

1) No trick or treating. I grew up in England and Australia. I barely knew what Halloween was. Ask me about Harvest Festival or Cracker Night :)

2) June...after my Aunt June who was born in....June.

3) I just saw Blue Jasmine, and I thought that was well done. I can't watch August Osage County again, well acted but grueling, and for me too close to the bone.

4) French. I'm passable at it. I can buy a loaf of bread and find a bus stop, but I'd love to immerse myself enough to be really conversational.

5) Snoopy, ok he was a comic first but he made it the screen. All the Peanuts gang.
I didn't know what Thanksgiving was, or Fall (which sounds like an accident) or Halloween but I am still waiting for The Great Pumpkin.

I'm with Mary W. - I don't understand the question.

2) What is your middle name?
I don't have one ... at least I didn't until I got married. My Mom didn't want to give me a name that would be "wasted." But she totally threw away her given names (Mary Louise) and went by Vandy (her maiden name was VanderKloot.)

3) What book or movie have you read/seen lately that you would recommend?
I liked Silver Linings Playbook, but have been waiting (very impatiently) for Philomena to become available on itunes ...

4) If you could speak another language fluently, which would you choose?
If I were to be practical, I would choose Spanish - for fun, I would pick German so I could sound like a bad ass no matter what I said ...

French because I would love to go back to Paris and Provence and really talk to people.
Spanish because I live in Texas and, duh.

2) What is your middle name?
Ethel. It was my grandmother's name and I hated it until I found out how she lost two husbands before she was forty and raised 5 children by cleaning houses. Hard not to at least admire my father for choosing to honor her in that way. Although I always thought it should've been my sister who got it :)

2) I have many middle names. Liebchen is but one of them.

3) How about Sordid Lives? Olivia Newton John as a gum-chewing, guitar-slinging, bisexual, interracial dating, foul-mouthed ex con from Texas. What's not to love?

4) Spanish, because I speak it haltingly, embarrassingly, humiliatingly.

5) Sherman and Peabody Classic. I refuse to acknowledge the computer animated wannabes.

#3. I nearly forgot! After finishing Five Days at Memorial, I had the pleasure of reading Green Girl in Wisconsin's latest novel, Kicks Like A Girl. It is a wonderfully fun read!

@Amybee, I have read everything by Courtney Milan as soon as it comes out....she's one of my favorites. The series is getter better with each one.

1) Candy corn and nehis - I think that's what they were called, those tasteless chalky disks.

2) Renee

3) "Her" (the movie) was completely unique and surprisingly charming. Books - "Stardust" by Neil Gaiman was a delightful fairy tale, and "The Boy Detective Fails" was sad and funny and confusing all at once.

4) Italian, Greek, or Danish

5) I liked the Coyote and Roadrunner when I was small…the Triplets of Bellvue is pretty good...
