I thought I'd found a true kindred spirit (especially with Shawshank Redemption and When Harry Met Sally)(and I'm turning 40! *sniff, sniff*) until I got to SpongeBob. Tell me it aint so! You don't really like that show, do you?

Also, what are some of your favorite children's books/ authors? I'm a voracious childrens' book reader and am always on the lookout for winners.

Shifra: And you didn't tag anyone?

(If you don't tag anyone, your vacation wishes don't come true)

And Ayelet - you're ruining a blog posting I was working on!

At 10:25 AM, Blogger Shifra said...

Jameel you are right, I tag you!

Ayelet - SpongeBob was an after thought, I couldn't come up with a fourth but I do find him pretty funny depending on my mood *laughs like a dolphin*

Tell me what age range you are looking for and I'll give you my favorites.

SpongeBob is so great. I just forgot, which is why my MEME first said "Powerpuff girls", which I do love (sue me).

But a few hours later, we went to a Chanukah party around the block from my house and the kids were all watching SB. Having realized that I love SB, even more than the PPG, I went home, and edited my MEME to say SB.

Weird yes, but the truth must be told.

SW- after I read YOUR list I wanted to change my fourth to PPG!!
It's official we are both dorks!

Four TV shows you love to watch: Wait, that doesn't work. It's been over ten years since I stopped watching TV! Okay, how about 4 series I would actually consider shelling out money for those "Season" dvds of: The Muppet Show; Quantom Leap; Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman; and, ummm, Dr. Who (but I almost said Little House on the Prairie instead.)

See? I win the dork prize! umm, wait, is that a good thing?

At 12:31 PM, Blogger Elie said...

Usually these memes are a chore, but I actually like this one - so go ahead and tag me too if you want!

At 12:33 PM, Blogger Shifra said...

Ooooh Miriam good picks!!
I LOVED Quantum Leap, and Dr. Who!!!
The muppet show is also a classic work of brilliance of COURSE.
I can't say I cared for Dr. Quinn though... wasn't there some hot indian on that program? Maybe I was distracted from the plot....

At 12:33 PM, Blogger Shifra said...

OK Elie!
Take it and run!

At 2:49 PM, Blogger Krum as a bagel said...

Shifra, love the coffee pick. I had that in my head before I started writing (with the same "is that a food" comment) but it never made it onto the page for some reason (maybe not enough coffee).

At 5:38 AM, Blogger Jameel @ The Muqata said...


Thanks for bringing up SR...that was a great film!

SpongeBob? I don't get it...except for buying SpongeBob junk for my kids.

At 1:11 PM, Blogger miriamp said...

I'm not sure why I liked Dr. Quinn... strong female character? The plot was pretty weak, IIRC. I just like historical fiction, I guess.

At 3:05 PM, Blogger ... Is the Window to Our Soul said...

It seems that When Harry Met Sally is a popular movie for us bloggers (mostly women.) I bet many of us identify with Sally! Hmmm?

At 3:17 PM, Blogger Shifra said...

My husband and I met under coincidental circumstances several times over a course of many years before we got together, and we were friends before we started dating so I guess I do relate to Sally.

At 9:38 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Coffee, Chocolate - two of my favorites too. Count me in for WHMS too. (See, now we need an internet-style acronym for that movie.) Nothing in it resembles my life; I just think Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal are terrific together.

OK, so is it rudeness to link to my meme? No, I think by hilchot blog that is kosher.

At 12:40 AM, Blogger MUST Gum Addict said...

SpongeBob is awesome. The Muppet Show was probably my favorite show when growing up. The movies of both of these shows were also wonderful entertainment.
