Snap poll

All is generally well over here, but I'm not really in the mood for a detailed report. Maybe the article I just read on parents blowing up their kids privacy on social media has something to do with it. Truly, my kids don't seem to care. They have actually told me they don't care, and that they even kind of like reading my thoughts, especially about them, but I'm mulling over the boundaries this morning.

In the meantime, here's a quick poll: What are your favorite three movies of any genre and time. Quick! Don't think too hard. What comes to mind? For me its The Fisher King, Love Actually and The Shawshank Redemption. For my man it's Amadeus, Down Periscope and Love Actually. With the caveat that tomorrow we might all make a different list, what are your three faves?

  1. Wizard of Oz, Amadeus, and Rosemary's Baby. Good morning. I never really write about my son on my blog except for his comings and goings and for a while there about THE GIRL. It just means that a lot of people think they know me understand my life and they aren't even close. They just get a snapshot.

  4. Dr.Zhivago, Guys and Dolls, Duel.

    BTW, you were right about my son and his dating dilemma. In NYC over the summer he met a beautiful, intelligent and cultured girl from Tanzania that seems very fond of him and does not seem in the least bit crazy. He barely noticed when his last heartbreaker appeared before Congress to speak about human rights abuses in China. I think he will be OK.

  11. I ask my children before I post on Facebook, but they don't know about the blog. They have fake names there, though...

    Three favourites? Betty Blue, Brokeback Mountain and Coming to America.
    Amadeus would be in my top ten.

    I just watched Short Term 12 and it might rank.
