Oh, you like Jean de Florette/Manon too! I love those films but they're so depressing that I can't watch them too often.

Yay for The Matrix and S&G. :)


Steliano Ponticos said...

Manon des sources is great. Its so good it makes me like Emanuelle Beart whome I really don't like usually...maybe I will do this tag

Steliano Ponticos said...

is juicewee a word, for juice in a carton?

Olivia said...

Mers - it's never easy to narrow down one's movie choices :(

Steli - Why don't you like Beart?
Yes do the tag, I'd like to see it.

And well done, you have invented a new word too!

Leilouta said...

You should try middle eastern food :-)

Olivia said...

Leilouta - I have tried it :)
Lebanese & Moroccan.

randis said...

Hmm, I'd do this, only most of them don't apply to me. No vehicles, lived in homes both in the same city, never been on vacations to four different places, haven't had four jobs.
Man, I'm about as pedestrian as a passenger train.

P.S. Missed you. Write me to yell at me to write you again.

Olivia said...

Hey Randis! I missed you too. Off to shoot you an e-mail right now.

Michelle said...

I liked the original Pride and Prejudice too! Better than the remake actually.

Though I have to admit that it was at least 99% due to the sweltering attractiveness of Lawrence Olivier.(or it it laurence?)

Olivia said...

Michelle - oh! I forgot about that one. (It's Laurence.)

I meant the 1995 A&E/BBC version. Colin Firth...*drool*

I haven't seen the latest remake yet.
