This week, we have a Five of fives.
- List your (current) top five favorite food dishes; include photos if you’d like. Just last night I went to a small potluck dinner. I made a baked potato dip from Allrecipes that goes over very well every time. I also love enchiladas in general, and flautas are becoming a new favorite. There’s always Pasta Lindsay (rotini, ground sausage, marinara sauce, and love), and my modifications to a chicken tortilla soup from Allrecipes.
- List your top five disliked movies of all time and why. Mystery Men will always top this list because it was weird and I will never live down my family’s teasing that I was the one to choose it for movie night. I hold a grudge against Avatar because the 3-D hurt my glasses-wearing eyes and it had a lame plot. I watched Bad Boys 2 against my will and have yet to see a movie more plotless.
- List your (current) top five favorite TV shows and why. I still love Jeopardy!, even if I never do watch the episodes I DVR. I recommend How I Met Your Mother to everyone I meet. I struggle with Grey’s Anatomy, but I love it anyway. I will probably watch Degrassi forever, and I just finished watching last week’s Once Upon a Time, which is the first new show I’ve started watching in a long time.
- List your top five favorite places to visit; include photos if you’d like. Does home count? I think it counts. I like going home to Maryland because it’s familiar. I’m counting the National Shrine as a second place because it’s awesome and it requires some traveling from home proper. Other than that, I don’t really like to travel, so I tend not to. Does the bookstore count?
- List your (current) top five favorite songs; include video if you’d like. My current favorite song is “Jack Sparrow,” by The Lonely Island, of “I’m on a Boat” infamy. I introduced a bunch of friends to it last weekend and they loved it. I’m really glad that Switchfoot’s current single is “Afterlife,” because it has a similar message to “Stars,” that we know there must be something more beyond just what we know. My personal theme song is still “Vow to Vowels.” Other than that, pretty much anything from the 80’s or 90’s will get my windows rolled down and the radio turned up. I’ll admit to having a sweet solo dance groove to “Party Rock Anthem” a few weeks ago, but that’s it!
