Did I really beat Tamara to the question? Wowser...
1. Love Actually.
2. Mint chocolate chip, although a place by us has strawberry chocolate chip that is to die for.
3. Irish Spring.
4. Red Sox - started following them in 86 and just kept on going.
5. Non-abrasive. I suppose that Quilted Northen.
6. ee Cummings, for the only reason that he's TCMH's favorite. I don't do poetry.
7. Alcohol and video games, unless I'm actually sick and then it's Nyquil and video games.
8. While I like falling asleep spooning, I sleep better on my side.
9. A toss up. Sweet - plain M&Ms - savory, potato chips (usually salt and vinegar.)

1. Gosford Park
Shirley Valentine
Groundhog Day
2. Jamocha Almond Fudge (Baskin Robbins, obviously)
3. Dr. Bronner's (ALL-ONE!) Organic Lavender Liquid Soap (Crazy Over-Punctuated Writing All Over The Label!! Yes!)
4. Mariners
5. Seventh Generation 2-ply (It's recycled!)
6. William Shakespeare
7. Sangria (But only if it's the real thing, i.e. with brandy.)
8. Left Side with a cat curled up behind my knees, one at my tummy, one on my feet and one next to my nose.
9. There are so many, and it changes with the seasons. Right now, Kettle Chips Organic Lightly Salted Potato Chips. Before that, the local co-op's molasses cookies. Before that, Oreos.

Movie: All-time? Casablanca
Flavour of the month: Phantom Of The Opera
Ice Cream: Paradiso (passionfruit icecrean with a mango sorbet swirl)
Soap: nothing too floral - currently using *checks* Le Jardin Naturel Olive Body Bars.
Baseball: not a clue. Someone pick a team for me.
TP: Kleenex Cottonelle or Sorbent Ultra 3 ply. I was raised by a toilet paper snob.
Poet: Thoreau
Self-medicating? A super large glass of wine. I have large wineglasses that work really well for this
Position: On my side, lying diagonally across the bed
Snack food: Potato chips

Movie to watch over and over? Groundhog Day, obviously. Really Casablanca and Animal House and Two for the Road and When Harry Met Sally..., too.

Ice cream flavor? Believe it or not, as a kid it was vanilla, but in htose those we didn't have as many choices. Now I'll go with a variation of coconut almond fudge, or ColdStone's Germanchökolätekäke®.

Bath soap? You're kidding, right Punky? I'm a guy. I don't take baths. And I don't care about what soap I use, as long as it doesn't reek of perfume. Any Dial will do.

Baseball team? Easy. I've been following the NY Yankees for 50 years!

Toilet paper? Usually use Scott's at home.

Poet? Anyone but T.S. Eliot or Gerard Manley Hopkins. No, seriously, I'm not a poetry reader.

Favorite method of self medicating? Smoke this and call me in the morning.

Sleeping position? I've changed over the years from a stomach sleeper to a side/back sleeper.

Snack food? I'm easy. Used to eat potato chips (Wise, then Utz) or pretzels (the fat, salty Dutch kind) or cheese doodles (puffed) but don't much anymore. I guess I'd go with the Utz.

favorite movie to watch over and over - that's VERY hard to say since i love so many movies, but recently it has been The Count of Monte Cristo or The Score.

favorite ice cream flavor - vanilla bean.

favorite brand of soap - dial.

favorite baseball team - boston red sox.

favorite toilet paper - scotts.

favorite poet - andrew dice clay.

favorite method of self medicating - working out, going to the beach, sleeping, cigars, or alcohol. pick one. or all.

favorite sleeping position - on my right side - its the only side i havent broken anything on (yet), so it doesnt hurt to sleep on that side.

favorite snack food - lays kettle cooked sea salt and vinegar chips or cheddar cheese goldfish.

1. Groundhog Day. But it does get repetitive!

2. coconut.

3. Any liquid deodorant soap will do. I do not like bar soap at all.

4. Pirates/Cubs.

5. Charmin Ultra in the Beyond Enormous roll size. But I am attracted to this new toilet paper that has pictures of a yellow lab puppy printed on it.

6. Hmm. Never been much of a poetry fan. Haiku is cool, though.

7. Lemon Martinis, of course!

8. Right side. Eventually I'll be all deformed on that side from years of sleeping that way.

9. Chocolate.

Note to Jeff: Wise potato chips!! Wow! I grew up eating those things in Pittsburgh as a kid. Was always fascinated by the color range on those greasy, misshapen things. Each chip totally naturally included black, brown, yellow and, everybody's favorite, green.

Utz is good, too but not weird-looking enough. Ate those when we lived between Baltimore & D.C.

The Midwest has no interesting potato chips.

At 9:37 AM , Blogger punky said...

Movie: Garden State, Groundhog Day, Princess Bride, Better Off Dead and When Harry Met Sally.

Ice cream: Coconut with hot fudge on top.

Soap: Dove sensitive skin.

Baseball Team: Don't have one.

Toilet Paper: Charmin Ultra

Poet: Shel Silverstein :)

Self Medicating: In my 20s, it used to be sex, alcohol or food ... these days it is sleep, music or movies.

Sleeping Position: My favorite is on my stomach with one arm under the pillow and one leg bent ... but that is not so great for my back ... so now it is on my side or on my back, depending on how tired I am.

Favorite snack food: Doritos or Sun Chips.

Punky, I believe we should seriously take a look at getting you back on your old medications.

I'd completely forgotten about Better Off Dead. I LOOOOOOOOVE that movie. It was my first introduction to John Cusack. MMMMMMM.

Side note: I was recently hanging out with a friend of mine from high school who mentioned that during her time in Hollywood (as a script reader) she'd dated John Cusack. I literally levitated off her couch, ended up on the floor and crawled across the room to her, saying, "You've lived my dream! Can I touch you?"

No. But I now know two women who have known/worked with him. I'm sure that means we're meant to be together. It's a Sign.

At 2:59 PM , Blogger punky said...

I think so, Sally ... I really do. And I will say as much when I am on the stand in a court of law defending you. :) ;) :)

Thanks, Punky. It's good to know I'll have someone in my corner.

(psssst. where should I send the money?)

At 5:07 PM , Blogger Kafaleni said...

Sally - we'll have to get Eleanor on board as your CDA. Just tell her that you feel about John Cusack the way she feels about George Clooney and she'll get herself registered to practice wherever you live. It's a woman thing.

I have a good friend in Wisconsin who also has a thing for Cusack.

You guys are totally nuts.

*goes back to Salma Hayek dream*

8. Propped somewhere between side and stomach, with a pillow under one knee. (isn't spooning done on your side, higgy?)

Been on vacation (nice, thanks), so I'm playhing catch up.

1. Favorite movie to watch over and over? It's very telling that every movie mentioned above is one I can watch over and over again. I do have Gosford Park, Better Off Dead and M.P. and the H.G. among others, on my iPod, so they're with me all the time. I can also watch the A&E version of Pride and Prejudice over and over again. In fact, several Colin Firth movies top my list.

Favorite ice cream flavor? Mmmm, vanilla is always good. Just about any Ben & Jerry's flavor will satisfy my craving (4 servings per container my ass).

Favorite brand of bath soap? Dial for showering, Bath & Body Works for liquid hand soaps.

Favorite baseball team?

Favorite brand of toilet paper? Ugh. Embarassed to admit I actually have a preference for Kleenex brands, inlcuding but not limited to toilet paper, wet wipes and paper towels.

Favorite poet? Robert Frost.

Favorite method of self medicating? Triple Antibiotic annointment.

Favorite sleeping position? I like Punky's . . . on my stomach, one arm under the pillow and one leg slightly hitched up.

Favorite snack food? McDonald's double cheeseburger. There's no way that thing is a meal or entree. Sun chips are good, especially the new gardnet salsa.

Oh my gawd, not fair to post a question on a Thursday right before 5pm, especially when I'm going to be playing hookie the next day!

Favorite movie to watch over and over? "The Philadelphia Story"

Favorite ice cream flavor? Blue Bell's Mocha Almond Fudge

Favorite brand of bath soap? Dove

Favorite baseball team? Ewww!

Favorite brand of toilet paper? Cha cha cha! Char-min!

Favorite poet? Elizabeth Barrett Browning out of loyalty for my past self, but Robert Frost if I actually have to, you know, read the poetry.

Favorite method of self medicating? Being alone.

Favorite sleeping position? Curled up into a tiny ball.

Favorite snack food? Melted sharp cheddar and tomato on toasted focaccia bread. Mmmmm...
