lyssac: (friday five)

This week's questions are from Suzy @ Not a Fertile Myrtle, and the theme seems fitting, because Katy Perry has been singing the soundtrack in my head this week.

Cause you're hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in and you're out
You're up and you're down

1) Which one is more irritating- being too hot or being too cold?
I hate being too hot. You can always layer extra clothes and blankets, but when I'm too hot, it's like I can't breathe. I freeze my husband out summer or winter.

2) Were you born in the winter or the summer?
I was born at the end of spring, beginning of summer, when everything is fresh and beautiful, but not to hot.

3) What are your favourite foods to eat when you need to warm up and cool down?
I love soup and hot drinks, all of the time; hot tea, cocoa, Americanos. Soft serve ice cream is another favorite, and one I will break my 'diet' for. I love ice cream and shakes, etc.

4) Which one are you more likely to suffer from- hayfever or flu- and does it run in your family?
My husband has bad hayfever, I have more indoor allergies (like mold). Respiratory illnesses tend to knock us both for a loop, but it's not a family thing for either of us.

5) You are granted a day of perfect weather whenever you like. What day do you place it on and why?
I don't know - hopefully day where I have the time and health to enjoy it.

1. What’s your favorite sports movie?
Sports movies. What sports movies do I watch? Baseball. Football. Feelgood, underdogs. I know I've watched them....

*jeopardy theme playing in head* White Man Can't Jump? Nah, not a fave, just ALSO happens to include Jeopardy. lol.

///tests google-fu on "best sports movies" /// Ok. A few Honorable Mentions, but favorites?

Amused that Pool and Chess make the 'sports movies' categories, when that idea would get your @ss kicked in most high schools - Hey! Is revenge of the Nerds a 'sports movie. Nah. Didn't think so. Oooh and we almost have a winner, thanks to this site and its list of controversial inclusions.

TIE: The Cutting Edge and Bring It On. The first probably has a slight advantage in favoritism, but the latter fights back with sheer smart-assedness. (Though it almost loses coolness points for the 50 million sequals.)

(What do you mean that wasn't in the movie you saw?)

2. What’s your favorite romantic comedy film?
I haven't the faintest idea. I do watch them, but they aren't top of my list. I'm an action/thriller/suspense kind of girl. Hmmmm...

I'm going to go old school with this. Pillow Talk with Doris Day and Rock Hudson.

3. What’s your favorite animated Disney movie?
Hmm, I love the soundtrack to Mulan, and it's hard to narrow down, so probably that.

(Here, Have an mp3 of my favorite: Donny Osmond - I'll Make A Man Out Of You [Mulan])

4. What’s your favorite non-Disney movie musical?

Into the Woods (with Bernadette Peters)

5. What’s your favorite stranger-in-a-strange-land / fish-out-of-water movie?

Wizard of Oz!!!!!
