Sunday Social (39)

Linking up with Ashley and Neely for the Sunday Social

  • 5 songs you'll listen to the rest of your life
    Louis Armstrong: What a Wonderful World - I love the sentiment
    Allegri: Miserere Mei, Deus - Beautiful soaring voices
    Morecambe & Wise: Bring Me Sunshine - Always reminds me of my Dad
    Frank Sinatra: My Way - Again, I love the sentiment
    James Darren: Here's to the Losers - James Darren, love all his stuff

    I chose a classic list rather than the stuff I like 'this year'.
  • 5 things on your bucket list
    - Go back to New York and maybe see a Yankees game
    - Visit Boston and maybe catch a Red Sox game
    - Walk the Camino de Santiago: the pilgrimage route to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia in northwestern Spain, where tradition has it that the remains of the apostle Saint James are buried
    - Do a fire walk
    - Remodel my kitchen
  • 5 celebs you'd love to hang out with for a day
    Does it matter if some of them are dead celebs? I don't really do celebs! My list would be:
    - John Lennon; we were all so into him at school. We even went to Abbey Road on a pilgrimage!
    - Mariano Riviera; Yankees all-time super closer.
    - Christian Bale; always subtitled in movies as "The Lovely Christian Bale"
    - Audrey Hepburn - total style icon and amazing actress
    - Grace Kelly - see Audrey Hepburn
  • 5 things you always carry in your purse
    Ah, an easy one!
    - my cellphone
    - my wallet
    - my iPad
    - my hairbrush
    - my bus-pass

    I'm set for anything!
  • 5 books on your reading list
    Ones I haven't read? There are currently 93 books on my Kindle in the 'queue' and a few actual books in the space behind the bed. Shall I give the highlights?
    - I'm about a third of the way through David Copperfield (trying out the classics)
    - I'm somewhere in the middle of the Sherlock Holmes books (again with the classics, although I'm enjoying these!)
    - I want to read the new book by Mitch Ablom who wrote Five People You Meet in Heaven (if you haven't read it, read it)
    - I'm in the middle of Stephen Baxter's Bronze Summer
    - Half a Yellow Sun; my mum lent it to me forever ago and said it was really good, but because it's an actual book it is way down the pile!

    For enthusiastic readers I really recommend Goodreads - come and find me there!

Handle with care - delicate or grumpy?

No, not squashed. Full and still drinkable!
