In Response to Miss Cavendish

While I usually refrain from personal information, I found myself inevitably answering Miss Cavendish's questions:

Books I’ve read/reread recently:
  • Angela’s Ashes
  • The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
  • The Great Gatsby
Things I frequently say:
  • Take copious notes.
  • That’s fabulous.
  • Get out of town!

Music I like:

  • Classical (e.g. Debussy, Mozart)
  • Musicals and Operas (e.g. The Phantom of the Opera)
  • 80s music (e.g. Chicago)
  • Jazz
What I couldn’t live without (in absolutely no order):
  • My husband, family, and friends
  • Designer clothes
  • Books
  • Knee-length boots
  • SPF
  • Cream/Lotion (I have painfully dry skin)

What I’d love to do before I expire:

  • Write a book
  • Raise two healthy, happy, and productive children (preferably a boy and a girl)
  • Travel the world (in particular, Asia, Greece, Brazil)

How lovely! Thank you for joining in.

I too have read Gatsby countless times and find something new each read. Have you seen the Mira Sorvino A&E film version? it's quite a contrast from the Mia Farrow classic.

Yes, I've watched both versions. Both Daisys don't quite cut it for me, but Robert Redford is perfect for Gatsby. I adore this book; I smile everytime I read it.
